I think insane DDR4 prices are holding up the entire upgrade lifecycle. Lower prices by 50% and I think a lot of people will upgrade .. Then prices on old sandy/ivy/x99 systems will drop like a rock on ebay making everyone happy
Well So far.. 4 out of 5 machines were upgraded successfully.. the 5th machine hung downloading the upgrade and now won't boot
Also noticed the LAV Video filters don't work in full screen mode.. so if anyone is using them with Media Player Classic.. you'll probably have to wait for a fix. =(...
As i get older i'm getting motion sickness in a lot of the first person games these days.. =( can only play for 30 mins at a time and when it hits I feel very ill for the remainder of the day.. So I've been afraid that VR would make me hurl immediately
1. Panasonic was the first to offer an HDTV for sale in the US in 1998(?) it was a 57" rear projection.. and I bought one for almost $7K. Hooked it up an HTPC using a bunch of crazy expensive hard to find adapters connected to some flavor of Geforce4 and Athlon thunderbird 750Mhz SLOT-A system...
I caved and picked up a 3570K, miniitx mobo and 16G ballistix memory on Sunday at my local MC..
I got $50 off the mobo and an additional $10 off the memory which was on sale for $77... so $67.. deal was too good to resist..
Love their mice and remotes.. still use them today..
their Dinovo keyboard was a disappointment however.. so expensive and nice BUT not user serviceable once the battery died in 2 years.. you had to send it back to logitech $$$ or DIY it which had bad side effects..=(

I got this drive last week.. I ran it all weekend to make sure i didn't have a DOA.. Then I took it out of the enclosure and installed it without issue
When i bought it, I didn't know you could immediately apply AMEX points to all Amazon purchases without hassle.. I ended up applying ~$25 to...

video cards = worst investment ever!
i'm still a couple of gens behind.. pair of GTX295 dual PCB
will probably buy a GTX680 when the next gen comes out so i can get one for cheap.. i'm done with paying massive prices for the cards only to be outdated 6...
FYI, none of the 7xxx cards work with hackintosh currently
your best bet is a 6xx card from nvidia
or I think the 6850 will work with hackintosh, but the crossfire will be disabled. and you'll just see 2 separate cards.
I use the VLCStreamer app.. It's very simple to setup
you install the app on your ipad/iphone it costs $1.99 and is well worth it...
then, download the free VLC streamer helper app on any PC.. They give you the link when you configure the app for first time..
it will be able to access any drive...
So far my three Hitach 2TB and seven Seagate 1.5 TB drives have been fine.. (knock on wood)
The only drive failures I've experienced in the past 3 years was two WD 1TB Green drives.. They may have been from a bad batch?
yes, I concur they are even worse that madoff's company... and they know they are so horrible they changed their name to xfinity...sort of like entering the witness protection program and starting new again.. :rolleyes:
