    It is if you run windows xp :p

    True, but I'm still not sure why anyone who would play a game this new, and this demanding on windows xp.

    #131247 New xbox bundle revealed

    Posted by Quinn on 01 September 2011 - 10:25 AM

    It may be the same base hardware, but I would hardly consider it a copy, as it has plenty of features that separate it from the old bundles, such as gigabit lan instead of 100mb.

    Wow, I can't wait! I'm going to buy it fo sho cause I'ma Microsoft fanboy!!!1!!111!

    #130323 ARMA 2 FREE! GOGOGO

    Posted by Quinn on 10 July 2011 - 12:02 AM

    No joke, "Green Man Gaming" is giving away ARMA 2 for free, just use "THESU-NFREE-ARMA2" as a coupon thingy at the checkout!
    (It appears they are out of keys atm but are promising to get more and send them via email asap, still worth a shot!)
    They are also running this promotion for:

    Men of War (apply coupon “THESU-NFREE-MOFW1″).

    Tower Bloxx Deluxe (apply coupon “THESU-NFREE-BLOXX”).

    Neither of which I care even 1% about, but oh well. Shamelessly ripped from http://savygamer.co....deluxe-pc-free/

    I think that the Off Topic description should have "Slidell owns this section" Added to it. Cause he does.

    #130307 Macbuntu

    Posted by Quinn on 09 July 2011 - 01:41 PM

    Because we all like Mac look alikes, I figured I would post about Macbuntu. Basically, Macbuntu makes Ubuntu look like Snow Leopard. It can be used on any distro "based on Debian/GTK", however I would recommend sticking with Ubuntu.
    D: Stupid ipb won't let me embed the images!


    I'll be trying it out soon, I'll post some more about it later.
    Also, if you don't know what Ubuntu is, this topic is not for you.

    #130160 Dream (Gaming) PC Build - June 2011

    Posted by Quinn on 01 July 2011 - 11:22 PM

    I decided to compile a list of parts to make the most insanely overpriced gaming PC that I could. What can I say, I was bored..
    I decided to begin with the motherboard (Cause... you know, everything revolves around it). I thought to myself, what's the most over the top board out there now... And none other than the EVGA SR-2 came to mind. Let me lay down the tech specs of this board right now. This beast supports two Intel Xeon CPUs, has 7 PCI-E 2.0 slots (4 x16 or 6 x8 + 1 x16), supports 48GBs of DDR3 RAM, has two LAN chipsets (cause you know, one wasn't extreme enough!) and is f'ckin massive. The rest is gravy. The board can be found here.
    Cost so far: $564.99 (On sale, Canadian Dollars)
    For most, the next logical step would be to find a CPU. Normally, I would do this first, but this isn't a normal nor logical build. So I went searching for a case to hold this bloody board and its non-standard form factor. I also figured in that I would need dual power supplies, because this system will be drawing a helluva lot of power. What case is decent all around and can support two PSUs (without mods)? Look no further than the Xigmatek Elysium. This case has it's own damn form factor on newegg. The case can be found here.
    Cost so far: $784.98
    I guess it's time to give the CPU(s) a little love. The choice here was obvious, the Intel Xeon W3680 fits perfectly into the agenda. For you guys who are thinking (if any of you actually understand wtf I'm talking about) "that's not the top of the line Xeon, why get it?" The reason is because there are only two differences between the two CPUs, the first being the X5680 (top of the line one) supports more memory, and the second being $784. Anyways, this CPU has 6 cores, 12 threads. So for you guys who can't do math, that gives us 12 cores with 24 threads. Which is a lot of cores and threads... The CPU can be found here.
    Cost so far: $3016.96 (whoa, that was a jump)
    Now, all those cores and threads are useless without memory, and Patriot has just the remedy. The Patriot Viper II ‘Sector 7’ Edition kit gives you 12GBs (3x4GB, triple channel) of DDR3 2000 memory. Normally, 12GBs is considered a lot. But you know how we do it, overkill is my thing. Because our motherboard has 12 slots for memory, we would need four of these kits. To save your precious little brain, that's 48GBs of DDR3 2000. How the hell will you ever use all of that? The Memory can be found here.
    Cost so far: $3644.92
    Here comes the fun part boys and girls, the graphics cards. Yes, "cards" is plural for a reason. That reason being that it would be a damn shame if we didn't throw in a multi-GPU solution as epic and overkill as the rest of this build. The multi-gpu solution in this case consists of four - yes, four EVGA 384-bit, 3072MB GDDR5 GTX 580 bundles of awesome. Why not go with two 590s? Because they're slower than 4 GTX 580s in SLI, and in this case, have less memory. Not much needs to be said about these babies, except that they come with water blocks already installed. Is that epic or what? They can be found here.
    Cost so far: $6604.88
    Because you can't run a gaming PC without hard drives, we obviously need some. May I present to you my solution: Two Corsair Force Series 3 240GB SATA III SSDs (would be set up in RAID 0) and four Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB Hard drives. Why the WD 2TB drives? So you have space to store all those pirated games you download, you bastard...
    The SSD can be found here.
    The WD drives can be found here.
    Cost so far: $8184.82
    Ah, at last, we have the power supplies. What could possibly power this system? How about 3000 watts of Silverstone power (2 1500w PSUs). Needless to say, these are the highest (advertised) power PSUs out right now. Then can be found here.
    Cost so far: $8930.80
    Because if you can afford this system so far, you're a boss, you're gonna need great screens. Enter the NEC P461 46" "Large Format Monitor". At that size, you may wonder, why not just get some TVs? The reason lies in the bezel. These babies have a fairly thin bezel, while similarly sized TVs often have a thick bezel. Anyways, buy 6 of these and set them up in a 3x3 grid, and you'll have a 138 inch screen with a resolution of 5760x3240. That's awesome. However, they are rather steep, at $1,824.99 (each) on sale. They can be found here.
    Cost so far: $19880.74 (BAM!)
    I'm not going to baby you guy so much to even pick out a keyboard, but I will finish this insane post with the water cooling system. Shits gonna get insane. The loop would come from Koolance, who are pretty awesome. Anyways, this loop consists of the CPU 370 waterblock, the ERM-3K3UC System, the EVGA waterblocks (already one the 580s) and various nozzels, tubing etc. ($1,408.31 total)
    Total cost of build (before taxes and shipping): $21289.05
    Is this system complete and total, by every definition of the word, overkill? Yes
    Will I ever build a system like this? Probably not, unless I win the lottery (or someone important sees this article and sends me free parts :p)
    Would this system be boss as hell? Yup xD

    Please tell me if I missed anything, I made this list late at night. So I'm tired, and I make mistakes when I'm tired.

    #128441 hard drive speed

    Posted by Quinn on 29 March 2011 - 01:51 PM

    i know it was a right essay haha i just thought i'd better lay out all the facts so its easier to make an informed decision... i dont think anythings been left out between the 2 of us haha

    Well, maybe one thing hasn't been said.
    SSDs are far more shock-resistant than regular HDDs (because they have no moving parts), which makes them better for mobile usage in terms of reliability.

    #128335 Fb build v 0.12 12625

    Posted by Quinn on 25 March 2011 - 03:15 PM

    Idk how i can make myself any clearer that I don't want them online. Did you even remotly read what i said? Look again and read it closely, I said "no1 wants jtags online" and "i know this isnt it but it is still a step closer unfortionatly". As i stated above i clearly dont want them online your right they ruin online gameplay, how in the world did u think I did want them online based off what i said?

    First things first, it may be possible that your (severe lack of) spelling skill could have confused me. And yes, you could have made yourself a lot more clear:
    "i cant believe it, no1 wants jtags online, i know this isnt it but it is still a step closer unfortionatly"
    "I cant (should be can't) believe it, no1 (should be no one) wants JTAGs online" To me, that looks like you cannot believe that people don't want them online, therefor implying that you do want them online.
    "i (Should be a capitol) know this isn't it but it still a step closer unfortionatly" (Should be spelled "unfortunately") Again, to me, this looks like you're saying that this release is a step closer to having them offline only.
