    Small steam stream/emulator build

    My goal was to make a very small HTPC mainly for old console emulators and to steam stream. I can install windows 7 for free since I have a license and I can also use ubuntu since I'm versed in that, and I also have a spare SSD I'm not using thats 250gbs. Not shown in the part picker is an 80...

    25% Off Hoodies & T-Shirts @ Bethesda Store

    Nice to know about the hoodie as the photos make it look kinda cheap. Does the image on it feel like it's nicely put on, or will wear off over time as you wash and dry. As to wearing these in public? Hell I rock that stuff to work and I'm 30, depends on your job I guess. If I had to wear...

    Ratpadz XT $25 w/Free Shipping

    I can't help but chime in. I've had mine since I cant remember when. It's seen a ton of desks. I never stop to think about it, but it's seriously the one peripheral I still own that I use every single day AND it's in perfect condition. Speaking of desks, I probably bought it around the time...

    After 10+ years i still look to everyone for help, building living room gaming pc

    After 10+ years i still look to everyone for help, building living room gaming pc

    Thanks for the suggestions. I looked more carefully at the space and I think I can really do a decent job hiding the entire unit right behind it if I play my cards right also. Researching the PSUs. Again, thanks for all the help so far.

    After 10+ years i still look to everyone for help, building living room gaming pc

    So I think the guts seem straightforward. Case wise this is what I'm dealing with. That area under my amp that is 6 inches high and 15 inches across. It'd be cool to fit something under there, OR put it behind real straight up against the wall. http://imgur.com/jjPNdAT...

    This is basically my main idea. I think it will fly for what it needs to do, and with the micro center nearby it seems like a no brainer

    PS4 360.00 at ebay via NewEgg

    I'm a PC gamer but if the price ever hits 300$ I'm in. Good catalog soon, and and all these PS vita crossovers I've been amassing on the PS+ membership will be an instant catalog for me.

    Sennheiser Outlet Store - HD650 $339.97 shipped

    I had that same feeling watching a movie with my HE400s on running through the same amp/dac combo. There was dusting blowing by and I looked down at my feet thinking it was there. I haven't tried the HD650s on the schitt stack, but I'm pretty happy with them with my HE400's. I love the build...

    27" QNIX QX2710 Evolution 2 impressions

    Just an update on macbook compatibility. I've been using this with my pc, but got a late 2013 macbook pro 13 inch retina for freelance work. I did tons of googling and it seemed the only way to make it work was to get a pricey apple mini to dual link adapter. I ended up trying out a blue...

    HiFiMan HE-400 / HE-500 Headphones $100 Off

    What this guy said also, the velour pads are basically a must buy. In terms of the sound being warm, I find it to be a nice balance depending on your EQ. I'd def check out the head fi forums on what people like in terms of EQ. www.head-fi.org/f/ Not that our guys don't know their stuff...

    HiFiMan HE-400 / HE-500 Headphones $100 Off

    I've had them since they went on sale around black friday for 100 off, and I won't lie when I say I love them. They have totally changed my audio experience. Im running a schitt stack, which I have read may not be totally ideal. However the sound to me is so bright and the sound-space feels...

    Why was my 7950 to GTX 780 a downgrade?

    And my major city im talking about that city north of balota. I think it's because of all those apartment buildings, they just have so many textures or something inside of them. Probably an issue that needs to be addressed. It's still playable, but when you can die so easily in a game like...

    Why was my 7950 to GTX 780 a downgrade?

    I dont know about Day z being so cpu intensive. I run it on very high, usually no AA, but on 2560x1440 and its smooth as butter with the 780ti. The only time I encounter any lag is if I turn fraps on or go into a major city, then I scale down to 1080 and Im ok. I could be wrong though.

    Geforce GTX 780ti Impressions and thoughts

    There's enough benchmarks out there on this card, but I wanted to give my take and aska question. I have a slightly dated but still strong rig in my sig. I swapped out a GTX 570 with 1GB of VRAM so the difference was massive. I am still sitting here wondering if I should of went with a 780...

    Rounding out my displays

    Ive had luck with dream seller on ebay, so I reached out to the guy directly. I will update this forum if he gives a price drop over the amazon one. I also refer to him in the emails as "THE DREAM SELLER" which he or she gets very happy about haha. Edit it also looks like you can achieve full...

    Thinking of the 780 for Cuda and Gaming

    Ive had issues with tiger direct rebates. Basically I'd send everything in exactly as stated then get a long winded and confusing email from the rebate people explaining how I need to send more stuff in. Also apologies for the kind of broad title, but they only let me edit in the thread, I...

    Rounding out my displays

    Right now I'm running a Qnix 27inch QX2710 and love it. I just upgraded to a gtx 780ti, and Im going to add another monitor to the mix. Except I'd like to be able to plug a macbook into this one. The Qnix wont work even with an adapter, which is fine, but time to time I need to open something...

    Thinking of the 780 for Cuda and Gaming

    Thats exactly the model I got. I used amazon because I have prime and I like their return policy but they gave me a haircut on tax,which almost never has happened to me. I'll grin and bear it for now. I've had issues returning stuff to newegg and t direct, so id prefer the safety on an...

    Thinking of the 780 for Cuda and Gaming

    Since I can keep the IRS off my ass with a 780ti due to the performance boost my freelance work will get (adobe) suite. Is it wise to stick that in this box? I know my cpu def needs an upgrade to an i7, but Im sure I will see a massive increase regardless. I was torn on the regular 780 but...

    Just bought HE-400's is a soundblaster Z enough to power it?

    i also need to add I am not using that sound card, so the difference may be negligible. but I did a lot of research and it seems like the consensus is an Amp then a Dac is the way to go to drive those cans.

    Just bought HE-400's is a soundblaster Z enough to power it?

    If you need to go more budget the Fiio E17 is a dac/amp that seems to have some real good synergy with the 400's. I just got one, and the quality is noticeable. Beyond that though I did a lot of research, and while it has solid reviews, it seems to push the He-400 very well. it costs around...

    Schiit Modi/Magni Stack and Sound Blaster Software Question

    this is something I'm interested in. I just upped my audio game greatly with the HE-400s and have a fiio17 , but I am using the audio out of the motherboard. Im wondering if a card will up the overall sound, or the amp and dac are enough.
