    My local Costco has the Dell XPS 15 i7/16gb 9570 for $1400.

    It's on clearance, so ymmv. They're simultaneously selling the 13" for $1600. Pretty great deal if you're in the market for one of these. I'd jump on it, but I've gotten too used to the 3:2 aspect ratio of my surface to go back.

    Any chance Trinity will drop around the same time as Ivy?

    I'm due for an upgrade and really want to give Trinity a shot, but if it's too long after Ivy hits, I probably won't be able to resist the temptation... :(

    Anyone here into robotics?

    I've got like 10 boxes of misc. electronics I used to mess with a few years ago... stepper motors, all sorts of weird linkages, fans, heatsinks, tons of scavenged mosfets, caps, etc. Ayone here interested in some of this stuff? I don't want to take the time to list it all in the FS/T forum...

    What's the fastest cpu in single-threaded applications?

    Would it still be an OC'd 2500k? I'm looking to play an old game (HoI2) that relies heavily on a fast single core cpu.

    Modern equivalent of the ATC-201 case?

    Here's a link to an old review of the ATC-201: I love this case... but everyone is telling me it just isn't large enough and doesn't have the airflow required for a modern system. So, is there anyone out there...

    What's the difference between these Crucial SSD's? I can't figure out the pricing or what the diffrences are. For example, the drive that appears to be the worst (CT128M4SSD2CCA), is priced higher than the first...

    So, my last build was an FX-51 system...

    ...built in 2003. Yes, my rig is nearly 10 years old. :eek: So, please help me build something new. Gaming, browsing (often with 50+ tabs), limited CAD stuff (inventor, architect, etc) $1000, but my priority is "most bang for the buck". I'd be quite happy to spend less...

    Suggestion for the OT forum

    How about making the genmay forum public to view, just not to post? tbh, I'm not really keen on subscribing to something when I have no idea what i'm getting. I mean, for all I know, the forum could be dead. Or is the idea of the subscription access more to just support hardocp, and...

    Help me justify an A8.

    Im looking to build a new budget rig, and i'm really intrigued with the llano stuff. Is there any area in which buying an A8-3870k would make more sense than going with an i3 or low end i5? I've been thinking it'd be worth it as I don't do much flashy gaming these days, mostly just strategy...

    Whats with pricing on the i3 stuff?

    The 2130 looks like it could be a great budget chip, but its priced ridiculously: $140 at newegg, when the 2500k is just $60 more.
