    Doesn't need the 3570k, a 7950 will do better.

    I made it better :P

    and ohh, you forgot a case


    Thanks, like I said, I am rusty.

    posted a message on Choosing a Power Supply...
    Quote from BlackJack10

    Hey guys, building a new computer, I have pretty much everything down EXCEPT for one thing; I need a reliable power supply.

    http://pcpartpicker....pply-cmpsu750hx
    That's what I was looking at, it's right wattage and about the right price.
    Is that a good power supply or should I choose something else?

    Thanks in advance.

    [EDIT] I'm not sure if this helps, but I'll probably end up installing some Cathode Tubes and LED's and stuff like that.


    It is a good power supply, if you are only going to have one GPU you could go down to the 650. Unless you want the overhead to upgrade.

    Something maybe like this? I am a bit rusty so I just went with the pattern of quality that parts usually follow.

    Install sizes are between 16 GBs and 20 GBs, IIRC, so you have plenty of space.This is not counting updates, which might be a bit more.

    Yay, and intelligent person.

    first of all the cpu isnt unlocked so you don't need the liquid cooler and that money can be spend towards a better card, plus the 7770 is weak for 1080p.


    I never even commented on the water cooling... Obviously it's not needed even in an unlocked setup.

    It's not really, as you can see, it's still getting 30-40 FPS with near ultra setting on 1080p. Turn off AF or lower it to x8 and it will be much higher, most people don't even notice the difference with AF and AA settings anyway.

    Regardless, he could get a better setup which is why I suggested building in my first post. Now stop being an ass and suggest a build rather than undermining people who are just trying answer the actual questions asked, rather than just suggesting something that he may not even be able to do.

    Sorry that was an unnecessary edit, I am just angry this forum has gone down hill. :(

    Please don't buy from overpricedpc. Their watercooling will leak within a few months, killing your system. The GPU is weak.


    The GPU is far from weak, as the benchmarks I posted showed. However it is not great price:performance.

    Oh, thank god, someone who finally has a decent build and a good idea of what they are doing.

    See if you can get at least an HD7850, if you can do that it should do all of those games at High settings.

    [EDIT] Ninja'd..?


    Yep. Forum oldie here.

    Looks like it would do alright. How much are you paying for it? You may be able to get something better if you build yourself.

    Why not just install chrome or firefox and MSE and Malwarebytes


    ...

    For a corporate environment? Do you have any idea how much of a pain in the ass that would be...

    What fm said before with documentation and such, but not only that every time there's an update you would have to manually update everything. (I have to do this where I work and it's a pain in the ass with 40 workstations) And then you have to make sure that all the plugins work if you have any. So on and so forth.

    posted a message on Ohhh I love my schools restrictions on the internet....
    Quote from fm87

    Nope and nope.

    The stereotypical setup is a bunch of switches connected to a single server running Windows Server, usually 2003, connected to a single hub/router (sometimes a second server) connected to a single access point, which causes immense congestion.
    From there, connected to the hubs are the computers, usually workstation PCs with their own per machine install of windows. Not off an overall system image from a server with write protection (which would be best).

    It's cheap because it has to be cheap. It's government funding and this is the last place schools can spend big money (unless they get a budget strictly for new computers, in which case, they go out and buy 50 mac pros). It's a pretty easy/standard setup because they don't need it to do much, and while re-imaging a PC is not that big of a deal, it's still something that takes time and money to do. Or worse, they outsource their IT because there is no one from the government appointed to maintain their systems.


    That's quite a bit of ­ery...

    I hate this censor....

    posted a message on ATX Motherboard or BTX? (New Motherboard Possibly?)
    Quote from Zontafer

    Okay, so as you guys might have known, the improved version of cooling motherboard, BTX, was, as one might say, betamaxed. ATX is a rather old-ish motherboard, BTX is more recent, and it is dying, also, IMO, BTX provides a solution to the ever-so-growing cooling issue. Though, this has died.

    Now, I'm wondering, ATX is getting old. Do you think motherboard manufacturers will produce a new type of motherboards, improving cooling once more, and other issues? Or will the name stick as ATX and will it forever be built upon the ATX?


    BTX died because it used passive cooling and was unsuitable (Structure wise, not sure on the specifics) for increasing speeds of components.

    posted a message on Python or C++/#?
    Quote from souljabri557

    C++ is hard. Do not start with it. I would go with some visual basic stuff at first, then move in the C languages (C++ is most important).

    Python is much easier;however, it is a dead end track. You can't really learn anything from Python, but if you try visual basic, you can learn to code in C++ from it.

    I'd recommend VBS --> C++ --> Java
    Good luck.


    Python is actually used in a ­­ton of stuff, it's hardly a dead end track.

    I hate this censor so, so, so much.

    Quote from CommanderBumi

    Hmm, if you can keep it below 500, i could switch to a desktop and get a gpu?


    I was thinking buy a pre-built with decent specs and then throw in a mid-range GPU; it will do what you want.
