General Discussion / New PC Build Approval
« on: 03:20 PM - 10/14/11 »
Hey guys, as some of you know I just built my first rig by myself about 3 months ago and am loving it (2600k ud7 build). Now my nephew wants me to build him a pc with a budget of 2k.

This is the build I wanna do, if you more experienced builders have any feedback please let me know.

i7 2600k
gigabyte g1 sniper2 z68 mobo
16 gigs dual channel corsair vengeance 1600mhz
2gb 6950 (will do the 6970 oc)
1tb western digital black sata 3 (data)
120gb Corsair Force series Sata 3 (os/ key programs)
Either an Antec 1200 or Df-85 matched with a cpx-1000 (love my df-85 and cp-1000 combo, so much bang for buck)

Lemme know what you guys think, and oh this is a gaming build obviously.

Hardware Compatibility / Kone + compatability [request]
« on: 04:12 PM - 05/05/11 »
Every time I bing up the compatability issues with this mouse, the one other guy using this mouse on the forum comes and claims it's compatible. The mouse works @ 125hz, but it is still not recognized properly, because I get all kinds of erratic results from the dpi checker. Can we please get full support for this mouse, it is a dead sexy gaming mouse, and I would love to put away my g9x, and whip this baby out.

General Discussion / Finally ordered my parts.
« on: 03:48 PM - 05/05/11 »
Couldn't wait for the new chipsets, so I finally binged and ordered my new pc.
Here is the parts list:

1 x Intel Core i7 2600K Quad Core Unlocked Hyperthreading Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Sandy Bridge 8MB
1 x Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H70 High Performance CPU Cooler System LGA775 1366 1156 *IR-$10.00*

1 x Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-FI Titanium FATAL1TY PCI-E 1X 24BIT Sound Card 7.1 Optical IN/OUT

I'm thinking of throwing another 6950 into the mix, and crossfiring down the road, but as it is I'm already pushing my budget of 2k.

General Discussion / Wait for New Intel Chipsets or not?
« on: 12:21 PM - 04/30/11 »
As some of you know, I was planning on building a 2600k UD7 build, but then ultim8 informed me of the chipsets coming soon, and advised me to wait. The anticipation is killing me, how much better can the performance of the new chipsets be, than the current ones. My PC budget is burning a hole in my pocket. : P

General Discussion / New PC
« on: 03:17 PM - 04/14/11 »
Decided to do something I've been wanting to do for a while now, and that is build a sandy bridge machine. Let me know what you guys think of my part selection, as this will only be the 2nd PC I've ever built completely by myself.


Build has changed dramatically, continue with feedback, and let me know what you guys think (Mainly asking for advice from Ultim8 : P).

Main changes are: Dropped the Sound card (Mobo supports 7.1 audio), went with dual 6950s in crossfire, switched from asus mobo to gigabyte upon recommendation, and went with vengeance ram on recommendation.

1 x Intel Core i7 2600K Quad Core Unlocked Hyperthreading Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Sandy Bridge 8MB
1 x Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H60 High Performance CPU Cooler System LGA1155 LGA1366 LGA1156 AM2 AM3

Release Candidates / Kone + regression on latest build
« on: 02:43 PM - 04/06/11 »
Never worked fully in the first place imho, but now it doesn't even work at 125hz, and gives me huge 6 digit numbers, and negative numbers, and all kinds of weird stuff, when I use the dpi check tool.

Hardware Compatibility / Roccat Kone + Strange behaviour
« on: 07:02 PM - 03/11/11 »
As stated in the post below, the kone + will work at low refresh rates, but to me that's not full support. All my other mice work fine @ 1000hz, so the kone + just isn't fully supported. This mouse is phenomenal, would love to see support added in the future.

General Discussion / Just bought a new car.
« on: 12:52 PM - 10/14/10 »
I just baught a 1992 Dodge Stealth RT (non-turbo). This may seem old, but the previous owner had it since new, and has only put 100,000km on it, keeping it in immaculate condition. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Stealth, it's actually made by Mitsubishi, and is mechanically identical to the Mitsubishi GTO or 3000GT as it's called in North America. It comes with a DOHC 24v (4 valves per cylinder)3000cc v6 engine that puts out 222hp. I'm hoping to put up some pictures when I go pick it up tonight.


General Discussion / G9/G9x "Precision" vs "Comfort" grip
« on: 12:20 AM - 09/11/10 »
I'm curious as to which grip all of you fellow g9/x users out there prefer. Leave a post saying which grip you prefer and explain why. (Just incase anyone is confused, "comfort" is the rubber, bigger grip, and "precision" is the textured, smaller grip)

I use both, "precision" for sniping and smg rushing, and "comfort" for long range assault rifling.

General Discussion / hauppage hd pvr
« on: 08:37 PM - 07/29/10 »
Ok, I finally got my new tv, and I'm ready to start recording, but don't know where to start. : P

What program for recording should I use?
What program for rendering/editing should I use?

Be sure to include detailed tut's and settings, for I am a noob. : D

General Discussion / What type of display do you use?
« on: 06:30 PM - 07/23/10 »
I'm in the market for an lcd that I will only be using for my 360. Not too worried about price, don't need anything out of the ordinary, just component connectors, so I can record with my dvr. Let me know what you guys are using.

Tried all the basic fixes, exiting my virus software, java, etc. Avast is not the problem, these are all the remaining processes. Someone wanna help me out, and point me in the right direction, or give me a solution. Thanks : D

XIM 2 Discussions / MW2 GB
« on: 05:14 AM - 07/08/10 »
I already have a team on the go for gb on the team ladder. We play s&d only as of now, but are open to other gametypes. The team consists of me being the only xim user, and then 3 pad users, 1 of the pad users is an absolute beast though. If anyone wants to get into the gb scene, and doesn't have a team, or wants a scrim, msg me. Oh, and we all live on the west coast (Vancouver Island), I'm available at random @#$% hours, (work on call).

General Discussion / New PC
« on: 09:45 PM - 07/04/10 »
As the topic states, I am looking to buy a new pc, I usually buy from ncix, and build a pc: http://pc.ncix.com/pcbuilder/index.php?action=config&id=3229481&platformid=1000

This time I'm on a budget and can only spend around $2000CAD, I'm hoping someone with more pc building experience than I can help me build as good a pc as possible with that amount. So I'd really appreciate any suggestions as to where to buy, or if someone wants to take a stab at that pc builder I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance guys.

General Discussion / Frickin spyware
« on: 11:32 PM - 06/22/10 »
I keep getting random, internet, popup, ads, while not having a browser opened. The annoying thing is that they disconnect my xim software, tried spybot s&d, adaware, avg, and avast, none of which removed it. The popups looks like this.

Anybody had the same virus or spybot, and succesfully removed it, or does anyone have any ideas. This is really annoying me, any feedback, or help is much appreciated.
