    G3258 Successor

    Title says it all. I really enjoyed this little processor, solid performance especially when overclocked. I'm wondering if Intel will follow it up w/ a 14nm version? Or (fingers crossed even though I know this is unlikely) an unlocked i3. Thoughts?

    $254 w/ Rebate: i5-4590, ASUS Z87-PRO, HyperX Fury 8GB

    Seems like a pretty legit deal. If I were wanting a reasonably cheap but good system this would be a great start! SuperCombo Upgrade Pack: Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Haswell Quad-Core CPU, ASUS Z87-PRO (V Edition)LGA 1150 MOBO, HyperX Fury 8GB Memory...

    Motorola Droid Turbo Thread

    Updated to 5.1, pretty happy with it so far. My screen does seem to like dimming itself now though, which I find somewhat odd. Glad to finally have a hotkey for rotation lock. Something else that's a little weird, Orbot doesn't seem to work properly anymore.

    Most Lightweight Android ROM

    Hey Everyone, I'm trying to breath new life back into a couple of old Android phones I have (DroidX and Galaxy Nexus), and finally delving into rooting, custom ROMs, etc... Does anyone know what the most lightweight ROM would be? Or perhaps ROM that is has lowest minimum hardware...

    Analysts Claim AMD Will Be Bankrupt by 2020

    Okay... I hope people don't attack too ferociously, but here it goes. I completely agree with competition being a good and necessary thing. And as a consumer, naturally the more choices and options the better. BUT... What would happen if in a parallel universe, Nvidia bought AMD? Wouldn't we...

    Texture Pop In

    Wow! You're getting that too with SLI 970's??? That's crazy I guess that's what people mean when they say Ubisoft games are terribly optimized

    Texture Pop In

    Yeah, its still certainly playable and everything, but sometimes it is distracting. Just breaks immersion a little bit.

    Texture Pop In

    I'll have to double check this, but I think about 1.2GB. Will verify though.

    Is that still what you're running in your system? What GPU do you have?

    Texture Pop In

    Already on it, got 16GB of Hyperx Fury 1866MHZ coming in tomorrow. Very true :(:( Shame I even entertained this setup for any time. Thanks for the insight. I am still newish to building and PC gaming, so diagnosing issues or even properly describing what's happening can be a little...

    Texture Pop In

    Firstly, I sincerely apologize if this is not the right place to post/ask this. If its not I'll move it as necessary. Anyway, just got Far Cry 4 and have been playing it. The game is awesome so far, but I am noticing dramatically what I am guessing is some weird texture pop in. A texture for...

    NVIDIA GRID Service Streams Games At Up To 1080P 60FPS

    Though I'm not totally sold on it, I think this is pretty impressive. Be interested to hear actual feedback on their new Shield console.

    The US Army Wants Invisibility Cloaks Within 18 Months

    There is no shortage of dumb, expensive ideas floating around... Like the "let's make a HUMVEE fly" idea. Seriously, just because after you've thrown enough money at something it may technically be possible, doesn't mean it's a good idea.

    2.5 HDD For desktop?

    Wondering if the WD Black2 would be a good option. They're on sale right now @ Newegg

    2.5 HDD For desktop?

    Just too expensive. I have a SFF PC and would like to keep things inside neat and tidy, and as much as I'd love to have SSDs all over the place, they are (right now) too expensive for me. Also, my motherboard only has 4 SATA ports, so I need to take advantage of them as best I can.

    2.5 HDD For desktop?

    Yeah sorry. I'm getting into recording game clips and GoPro videos and editing them.

    2.5 HDD For desktop?

    Sweet! Thank you! My only concern would be for launching and or working with movies... Would that be bogged down significantly by less than 7200rpm?

    People Want Parental Controls In Cars

    So what would happen when the car passes through one of these theoretical boundaries? It just dies or stops? Seems safe.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    For sure! Bummer to hear about your old system. Not bad to go balls to the wall though. I did sort of the same. Got super cheap components as a "challenge" to see what kind of performance I could squeeze out of every dollar, and I was just getting back into gaming. Then I immediately...

    2.5 HDD For desktop?

    Thanks! I'll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled. So far I've seen a WD Black for $60, but that was a 750GB drive. Though presumably pretty decent speed at 7200 rpm

    2.5 HDD For desktop?

    That's a really good point. I neglected to put together that the majority of reviews I had read must have been for laptops... which yeah, someone isn't going to say that they treated their laptop like trash and then all the sudden one day it wouldn't work. Of course its the hard drives fault...

    42% Of Tinder Users Already Have A Partner

    It may not be directly marketed that way, but that is apparently how people are using it. I've never used it, but I think it only shows people generally in your area. And then from there its a "hot or not" kind of thing, which is already picking somebody based on their looks and nothing else...

    42% Of Tinder Users Already Have A Partner

    I couldn't agree more. That is the cycle in a macro sense as well, the more broken families etc., the more exposed we are to it as a society, the more 'common' and 'normal' it becomes and on and on..

    Witcher 3 - Excited?

    That's really exciting to hear. I'm almost done with the first book and have really enjoyed it. The book has sucked me in pretty well, and I'm sure the game will only pull me in further, lol.

    2.5 HDD For desktop?

    This is perfect!! Thank you! I had read some reviews on Newegg that made it appear as though 2.5"hdds didn't have the same lifespan or didn't tolerate being on as long as a "normal" hdd would. Hard to say though sometimes people's reviews aren't the most coherent or correctly diagnosed...

    42% Of Tinder Users Already Have A Partner

    Wow. Doesn't seem surprising though I guess. Its easier and more accessible than ever to look around while one is in a committed relationship, and I think our culture has almost begun expecting that kind of thing.
