    How so?

    Do you mean in the way of software not using the new features like new instruction sets, new versions of Opengl ect ect.

    He's helping me build it for me?
    I'm just saying, he offered and im buying all the stuff. I'm sorry if you like AMD more then me but I've had bad experiences more with AMD/ATI then NVIDIA.


    I don't like either company more then the other I go with who ever offers the best bang for the buck in the given price range.

    I'm going to be putting it together with a friend. So should I go 670? I'm not a big fan of AMD/ATI.


    Is it ok to get your friend a worse deal for the price because of personal bias?

    This was at release I forget the patch number but Bethesda switched from the very inefficient x67 instructions to more efficient SSE2 and this reduce the processor load by a lot.

    You would see a different picture if toms redid it.

    In Skyrim it would. *cough cough* console port *cough*


    No not at all Skyrim is actually decently optimized on PC.
    My Athlon 2 handles Skyrim just fine.

    posted a message on Windows 8
    Quote from AntiFa

    All I can see in this thread is people saying "Oh I don't really like x about Windows 8" and then Xaanos coming in and vehemently defending Win8, it's making me lol.


    Maybe because I am one of the few people to have been running it on all my computers except for my Laptop that's running Linux.

    Most of the time its just Windows 8 sucks or is a touch OS when its not.

    Several of my friends hated it without looking at it when I got them to try it they changed their mind. Most of the hate comes from people who have not tried it or used it for a little in a VM and said I hated it and never touched it again.

    I just dislike the emphasis on touch based input.



    What emphasis I see no emphasis all I see is a new smart menu that allows more shortcuts.

    You know there is a thing called desktop Icons... They do the same thing...


    That would make the desktop cluttered. Also if you keep everything on the desktop why ***** about the startmenu getting changed.

    That is like saying android works perfect with a mouse. While everything works, it just feels SO weird and uncomfortable.


    No its not even close to the same thing Windows 8 works with a mouse better then Windows 7 it feels nice.
    I can actually get to things faster because its just windows key boom all my games.


    Quote from cnerde

    fits well. He likes and supports it (mostly) but 99% of the people in the comments don't.


    Linus is just trying to sell things and most of his videos twist information same thing with Neweggs TV youtube show things.
    99% of people are stupid and are just joining into the hate circle jerk.

    That's my two cents, and that's why I'm not happy with Win8. My computer isn't touch, and I can't adapt my future workflow to that without spending money.


    Nothing about the UI requires touch at all I have been running it sense the Dev preview it does not require touch it is not a touch OS it works fine with mouse and keyboard.

    posted a message on Naughty Children
    Worst things that I have done.

    Accidentally elbowed another student in the face he was not mad it was in PE I got ISS for a week.( Second grade)
    Fist fight with another kid that I did not star this happened about 3 times that year.(Third grade)
    Assaulted the super attendant with a flower pot (third grade) Went to different school for 4th.
    People around me on the bus were sharing porn photos while me and my friend played Pokemon but they all blamed it on my so I got forced to sit at the front of the bus.
    Attacked another Student on the bus (fourth grade)
    Lots of random fist fights at school(Fifth grade)
    Attacked another Student on the bus again(Sixth grade)

    I got in an evolution debate midclass my 8th grade year, the teacher did not stop it because it amused him to have my going against all the religious people.
    Left my pocket knife in my pocket and it fell out mid class teacher just said put it in my bag and nothing happened over that( 11th grade).
    Cursed at another student because he grabbed me because I knocked his glasses off playing netball. Then the teacher was about to send no one to the office so I cursed her out so we both got sent. (11th)
    My 12th grade year me and my friend built swords in the shop it was fun we were just told to take them home.

    At this point you probably think I am an insane psychopath the fights except for one was in defense. In second grade I basically refused to listen to the teacher so I was sent to go get diagnosed for mental problems. I did not know my real dad and the school thought this was causing issues among other things. When it really had nothing to do with it. But I got diagnosed with depression autism and ADHD and then the POS teachers decided they better tell the class what I had. This lead to be getting made fun of on top of getting stuck on different meds every other month I became very aggressive after a while.

    Other students well.

    Well for about 5 months all the students knew a bunch of guys were smoking pot in the locker room everyday none of us turned them in. One got caught he had a 3 day ISS.

    We had another girl call another a ***** ect and one got thrown out the first floor window.
    Every time they bring the drug dog to search the cars in the parking lot at least 2-3 shotguns are found most of the time the students just get a warning and life goes on as normal.
    Two winters ago a student stole an Ak-47 and planned to attack the school so they canceled school until he was found about a week and a half later hiding waiting for school to start again.
    We had a student come to a teacher saying a person had been making fun of him everyday for the past month and he was going to fix the situation if the school did not do anything. Well the teacher told the administrator and he did not do anything. Guess what a fist fight broke out.
    We have about 4-7 students pregnant on average per year.

    So I would say the schools I have been too are pretty normal.

    ah yes, because rooting your android phone isn't hacking either?

    please, spare me the crap. If you want root on your device. a little trickery is required.


    Yes hard how to unlock an android device
    fastboot oem unlock

    Boom you now fully unlocked your phone. You are free to install Ubuntu over your Android install if you wanted to granted you would have to build the drivers it but it can be done.

    Rooting is simple as flashing a rom where your rooted or installing a single zip file to mod the default OS to root.

    Androids recovery supports this all.

    If a specific manufacturer happens to limit this ability and remove these features of Android its their fault not Android.

    Quote from cambobambo


    Well he I still sort of right. Radeon video cards are used more for things such as video editing and 3D modeling while Nvidia is more oriented towards gaming computers.


    AMD owns even the gaming market Laptop markets are massive and their APUs are gaining ground their and AMD for the first time has kept a very strict fast release schedule and is out pacing Nvidia.
