Hard-on for hardware

24 posts in this topic

Sooo I saw this today, and thought I should share. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127754

If you don't get hard/wet (Kris we all know you have a vagina), you're gaming gay. Just saying. What do you think will come out to unseat the Titan and 780 as graphics beasts? 790? What other cool hardware is making an appearance after all the recent expos? Share your thoughts, and other pieces of hardware porn.

Oh aren't you witty, Volt. In that case, why not wait around about... oh 5-6 years when everything is VR and the 1000 series is out. Each with have 500Gb of GDDR10 V-RAM and 10,000 Cuda cores with 15Gb/s mem clock and a 3.5Ghz base clock. Lol the future looks sexy in 10k resolution LMFAO

A CLASSIC reference to an underrated cult film. Well done.

"Classic Reference" and "Cult Movie" are just ways of saying "This movie is fucking old and did terrible at the box office, but I remember watching it when I was 10 and thinking it was THE SHIIIIIT"

That being said... I can only carry 80 Gigs of movie references in my head.

Like Small Soldiers?

Cause that movie was the shit. Who doesn't want to attach a circular saw to a RC car? But back to hardware, boys. And where are all the Titan's with non-reference coolers?

Have you seen Zalman's new fanless cooler? It actually doesn't look like shit. FX100_600x500.jpg

I'm thinking about upgrading my speakers from Logitech LS21s to Corsair SP2500. I wanted to get a Logitech 5.1 with an ASUS soundcard, but I don't have room for the rear speakers in my dorm room. Any other good high power 2.1 speakers that would be worth looking into?

P.S. A Keanu Reeves movie? REALLY? I lose faith in the human race everyday.

Baby, don't be mad at me because I didn't cuddle you last night. Just accept the fact that I'm like a wolf.

Also, I'm just like JM, all I need is an upgrade.

I think there is a fan in that cooler, or you can put one in the center. I remember seeing it in videos during computex (I think). But I do remember it looking cool as shit.

So, back to the OP on this one. I think my little 460w psu would burn to a crisp if I installed that card. lol

P.S.: Am looking at replacing my gpu, but don't want to have to replace a psu.

At 15 fps. :'(

I'm kinda a snob or elitist now that I think about it. I get anywhere from 90 to 120 fps in BF3. Same can be said for many other games. Like Fleet Command, the game is so old, but it only uses single GPU and even with that it tells me I'm getting 400 to 500 fps. Lol. But when I was looking for a laptop, I was getting pissed because it's almost impossible to find laptops that can hold up to that at 1080p. But the 670mx is supposed to do really well, I'm hoping when I get the laptop back from ASUS with it's problem fixed, I'll be able to make more use of it. Here's the benchmark list for it,

http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-670MX.82603.0.html

It doesn't hold up to a lot of new games at full settings. But I'll play the shit out of ANNO 2070 and CS: GO. :rockout

I believe he was talking about his desktop, not his laptop. That being said a lot of high end laptops can get very decent frames on the high setting. My laptop when I use it to play games when I am away from home never gets below 50 FPS on high settings.

For those who are ever looking at laptops, if you are ever looking for a laptop and are debating between a Mac and a PC...trust me when I say spend the money that you would have spent on a Mac on a PC. You get specs that are WAY beyond what you would have gotten on the Mac.

Well spoken Al, couldn't have said it better myself. And yes, the desktop will get in the 100s while playing BF3 multiplayer and will sit around 80 or 90 when I'm screencapping. I checked the RMA status on the laptop and it is currently being repaired. So I should have it back early next week. I don't do a lot of game benchmarking. Only the major ones. I know I am able sustain anywhere from 60 to 70 fps in Metro:2033 and Last Light. Maybe I'll start benching a couple others just for bragging rights.

a mac isnt about specs. I've said that numerous times. Macs are about exclusive and/or optimized niche software and build quality.

Adobe software is sooo much more optimized on a Mac, assuming you understand the mac interface. And Logic Pro, need I say more?

Yay, Adobe, iMovie and Garageband are the only reason to buy a Mac. I have $20,000 in CAD, animation, and design software that wouldn't even install on a Mac. I know that the big iMac has a 780 in it, but what boggles my mind is Apple's blatant disregard to support even the most simple software. Now before you get on me for being a hater, I've owned Macs before. I had that original laptop that was multiple colors of transparent plastic (How is that good build quality?), the aluminum threads in the power cable broke and separated, so that was trashed. I then had a Powerbook G4, and I did my best to keep that little bastard running, upgrading RAM, storage, and even buying a new Mac OS for it. Battery life was non existent, had to be plugged in at all times, and it was slower than Hugh Hefner is in bed. Mac's are good for travelers, people on the go. Now that I'm a student, I'd love to have one of those new MacBook Pros, but I can't justify spending more for less, and the constant fear of having something go wrong and taking a trip to the Apple Store. In my opinion, PC is going to outlive Mac. Microsoft will make a streamlined OS that will rival the MAC OS in terms of ease of use, power use, speed, and simple mobility. When that happens people will wonder why they are spending almost $3,000 dollars for something with a 2.7 GHz processor and a 15 inch screen. The only thing that rivals the MAC right now, is the Razer Blade Pro. 17" screen, 765m graphics, 3.4GHz Turbo processor, thinner than a dime, and silent. I'm wishing fixing the car up and textbooks didn't cost so much, because I'd have one of those instead of the Asus Problem Maker. Alas, I rest my case. Now, the rise of the tablet and the convertable laptop on the other hand is another thing that bothers me, I'd love to hear your opinions on them, cause I see them all over campus, including touch screen laptops. I think they are slow, useless, and a source for never ending fingerprint related headaches. And as I look now, I notice that most companies have laptops that can compete for thin, light, and power, against the MAC. Lenovo Carbon X1, MSI GP60, and the ASUS N76 all stand out.

Here's the point where I trash all you Radeon lovers for a little, I still love you though, and I used to used AMD myself. But the 8970m is out, and so is the 780m. Both look pretty similar if you look at the specs list, but yet the 780m dumps all over the 8970m in terms of performance. In some cases the 780 shows a 57% performance advantage. Is Radeon giving up on competing and more worried about making affordable hardware now? Or is this just going to be the trend from now on? A MSi GX70 with 8970m sits at $1,300 new, and a GT70 with 780m starts at about $2,000. Do you think it's worth paying $700 for that extra performance? Now given that the GX70 is screwed using AMD's A10-5750 processor, and the GT70 using Intel's Haswell i7-4700MQ processor.

How's that for another successful rant?
