3D Mark scores aren't spectacular, but pretty good:

Ice Storm 158368
Cloud Gate 22543
Fire Strike  7100

that's a GTX 770 and i7 4770k.

Thank you.  One day I'll get a Falcon NW rig, but not now.  Maybe after the baby's through with college.  Anyway, I did end up getting a Cyberpower rig similar to the last one I posted.  Perhaps I should have paid for the expedited build since I ended up waiting 8 business days for them to get to me in the queue.  It's pretty sweet though.  It's lighter, faster and quieter.

Right now I hate Windows 8, but that's only because it's different than what I'm used to.  I think it could grow on me.  The mere seconds to boot is nice though.   It will probably be even better after 8.1.

Are there any good USB 3.0 hubs out there?  Reviews seem to indicate a lot of disconnect problems with removable hard drives.

So I guess there's not going to be a Vita 2000 any time soon.  Perhaps it's finally time to bite.

Last time I was looking for a notebook, I found that Sager had a good line up. I didn't end up buying from them, but I found them quite useful for comparison.  They are well rated.

I appreciate the thought, but mature games just don't show up there with the family controls on.  I thought they'd show up behind my password wall, but they're completely blocked.

So thank you CK for the direct links.  I suppose I prefer too effective parental controls than ineffective ones.  There is a work around, so I'm ok.
126  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [xbox 360]Games with Gold on: August 09, 2013, 04:36:23 AM
Honestly, it's probably all the family setting hoops I had to jump through to make sure my kids wouldn't see anything they shouldn't when trying to play Fruit Ninja, Kinect Party or Once Upon a Monster.  Still, how hard is it to make sure Games with Gold is one of the featured blocks?

When time is the major limiting factor in my gaming, wasting my time with stuff that's not fun is the biggest gaming sin.  I did look by name (and in games) but it didn't show up.  When I next turn it on, I fully expect a huge banner for Games with Gold.

I remembered this right before dinner.  I thought I'd grab it quick, let it download over dinner and play after dinner.  I look all over the xbox UI.  I try to bing crackdown.  I look it up on games on demand.  There's no sign of the game or games with gold.  Thanks a lot Microsoft.  I have to log into the xbox.com website on my computer, search for games with gold and 'purchase' it.  I can't wait to see their one box to rule them all.  Are they trying to limit the number of people who get their free game, or are they just incompetent? 

I thought this promotion was supposed to generate good will.

True, you'll never win going straight retail, but once it's built and shipped, it's a sunk cost.  If you can find a good sale or clearance, you can get a better deal.   
133  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Buying a new gaming rig on: August 05, 2013, 04:08:30 AM
I went by Fry's today to see if anything could inspire an impulse purchase.  Almost all their display models were low end.  There were three units that, based on specs, should have made for a decent rig.  Not one of the three would boot to the desktop.  Way to inspire confidence guys.  My son liked the paint job on the ibuypower rig.  My wife thought it was too gaudy.  I mainly cared that it wouldn't boot.  First time I'd ever seen one and it didn't work.

They did have this ASUS in stock, but it wasn't on display.  Nothing about it (including the price) screamed buy me.  I went home empty handed.  I guess it's time to start research again.

136  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: So we're having twins on: July 22, 2013, 04:13:15 PM
We've all been there.  Doubling it is kind of crazy.  We had two families in our church.  One had quads, the other had quints about a year later.  Our church provided an exceptional amount of support including meals, diapers, baby sitting, shopping, money and some occasional overnight help.  They were still zombies for over a year.  It was cute seeing them show up on Sundays in their matching outfits, but we were all glad it was them and not us.  If it makes you feel any better, I'm up nights as well now.  I'm sure I'm getting a little more sleep than you though. 

Our first was a preemie.  When he finally came home, he had an alarm monitor.  It gave out a piercing shriek every time his heart rate or breathing dropped below a set threshold.  There's nothing like the sheer terror of awaking thinking your baby is dying.  95% of the time he had just pulled off one of the leads.  The other five percent he was just breathing too shallow.  Those alarms nearly gave me a heart attack.  He's a big strong, healthy eight year old now.  I haven't had alarm nightmares for years.  Good luck.

Logically, I know that about AMD GPU's, but then I look at Scraper's post just near this one.  I think of all the times I've had problems with ATI drivers.  Then I end up getting another Nvidia card.  I normally like to keep my rig just below premium price tier.  Though I don't even have a name for the price tier the titan lives on.    If I can't get a pretty rock solid rig (case, mobo, cpu, cooling, gpu, SSD, HDD, memory) for $2000, I'll just stick with consoles for a while.  What's the thinking on sound cards these days?

The end of our long remodeling nightmare is almost here.  Since it appears they won't be grossly over budget, I can finally turn my attention to a new computer.  I've been looking around delll, alienware, falconnw, origin, ibuypower and cyberpower websites.  It appears most of my motherboard, chipset, component knowledge is outdated.   So here I am asking for recommendations.  Right now I'm leaning toward intel chip and nvidia video card.  I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise.  I want to keep it under $2000, ideally closer to $1500.  I like to keep my rigs a long time.  However, I've never done more than one chip upgrade per motherboard.  I'm much more comfortable upgrading memory and video cards.  With that in mind, what should I be looking for?  Oh, I'd also like to boot from a SSD and have a large mechanical drive for storage.  Thanks in advance for the help.

Eh, fuck it! I just purchased an additional ship myself, the MISC Freelancer. I already have the Origin 300i. This means I have one ship for scouting and dogfighting and another for trading, and both of them are safe and secure with lifetime insurance. I also wanted a somewhat larger ship to explore with the Oculus Rift. smile This kind of game (and racing games) is perhaps the genre that is best suited to the enhancements from the Oculus Rift as you're simulating sitting in a seat while sitting in a seat. Can't wait to try it.


I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I have not gotten a 300 series yet, but I am trying to leave at least a few ships to earn in game.   icon_razz

I do have a constellation, so will be looking for a few crew members every now and again.

Obviously I haven't done enough research on this game.  How much have you guys spent thus far?  And what does a hangar alpha entail?  Just glancing at the pledge pages, those ships seem expensive.

Godfather 1 is one such movie. Try watching it with someone who hasn't seen it before before yelling at me, please - Its the slowest movie ever (now!).

Obviously you've forgotten about Once Upon a Time in the West.  A fly gets more screen time than the bulk of the actors in the film.  Almost no one from the lengthy opening scene is seen again in the film.  Today the first fifteen minutes of the film would be reduced to less than 30 seconds of quick cuts.  I can't say it's the slowest movie ever since I've yet to make it through Cleopatra or the soviet version of War and Peace.

If you watched anything of the PS4's reveal, they showed off developer friendly PC-like architecture, all sorts of developer friendly programs and features, etc. The whole thing reeked of corporate style humility, which is not the same as real humility, but it's enough to show that they understand what went wrong.

They even talked openly about the mistakes they made with the PS3. It was the kind of humility that really restores one's faith in their ability to deliver. If they mess this up, they're done. Luckily it seems like they won't mess it up.

Well, they haven't announced pricing yet.  Let's avoid aspirational.
