    Case for mini-itx build, been away for a long time

    Elegant in its own way (like anything Apple), but probably not appealing to most computer enthusiasts. The front panel has a power plug in it. I don't like that at all.

    Case for mini-itx build, been away for a long time

    I'm probably going to build a new gaming rig later this year, and so far the black/red Manta is in the lead for me. It's a bit big for mITX, but you have plenty of room for all-in-one watercooling solutions. Plus the case is sexy as hell. The Phanteks is a nice-looking case, but research...

    Amazon: BenQ BL2710PT $449 F/S

    Yep. I loaded my cart and saw the price drop. Bit on one. Sales tax in VA sucks, but whatever.

    New build after four years. Thoughts?

    I dunno. Not really. I suppose I could throw an SSD in there with a clean install of Windows and be pretty good for a while longer. Just like shiny new things!

    New build after four years. Thoughts?

    That's a nice-looking case, though a little bigger than the Fractal. I like Fractal having the ports on the top panel instead of the front panel, plus the open front for airflow.

    New build after four years. Thoughts?

    I planned to mainly run Windows 7 from the SSD. Do you install games on them too? What else? I chose 128GB because I figured I wouldn't be using even half that.

    New build after four years. Thoughts?

    Mainly got the itch, plus I want a somewhat smaller case. That's why I'm going mATX. I'll look into 2x8GB instead. How about the HIS iPower IceQ X² Turbo Boost Clock H280XQMT3G2M Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card?

    New build after four years. Thoughts?

    Is the 850 Pro $20 better? Do Radeon cards still run way hotter than NVIDIA?

    I have these. See if you can find them cheaper though. I don't remember mine costing that much.

    25% Off Hotness! Audioengine A5+ Desktop Speaker @ $299

    The smaller, more PC-marketed Klipsch sets are tinny to me. I ditched my ProMedia years ago. AE blows any of those away. And yes, these have decent lows, but you'll need a sub for any real punch. I have my A5 set on acoustic foam pads.

    25% Off Hotness! Audioengine A5+ Desktop Speaker @ $299

    This is a typical price. I got the original A5s in 2008 for $300 directly from AE, and I often see discount codes knocking the new version down to $300. But they are nice speakers. If you've never experienced mids before, you're in for a treat.

    I need a new keyboard. It's been a long time.

    Seems like the K95 is it. Has white LEDs and media keys. Pretty expensive though.

    I need a new keyboard. It's been a long time.

    I think Cherry Brown is the best choice for me. Typing is more important. I also like a white backlighting. Red and blue are harsh on the eyes in the dark.

    I need a new keyboard. It's been a long time.

    Since 2002 I've used the old Logitech MX keyboards. I had a wireless MX Duo, plus two wired versions, like this: This is the only design I've ever liked. I've never had issues with key blocking, and I like the media keys and volume dial. The layout is spread out nicely. Are there any...

    I wouldn't worry about it. There's always a 20% coupon. I used one when I got a pair four years ago.

    I have a pair of original A5s. Do they still have just the 1/8" inputs?

    Amazon reminds me of why I am their customer...

    Amazon realizes loyalty is worth spending money on. I can't even remember my last Newegg purchase. In fact, I'm getting close to deleting my Newegg bookmark.

    Humble Music Bundle is live

    If they had bigger names, everyone would already own the music. Also it's a bit delusional to think the rights owners to bands as big as U2 and The Beatles (really?) would go for this.

    Any Deals on Diablo 3?

    I'm just gonna play Torchlight II until Diablo III drops to $35 or so. I got a starter key, and really wanna keep going, but I have a strong feeling I'll regret paying full price for it.
