How's your PC build coming? And the FiiO device petition?

 

Hmm.  OK then.

 

FiiO has taken notice of the petition (Yay!) and hopefully once the clear their plate from their current work (working on some DAPs and updating some DACs) they will take a more serious look at it. 

 

 

And my build is complete! (Click to show)

 

 

It went together nicely, and so far the few games I've tried have been buttery smooth at max settings.  Since I'm coming from consoles, I'm not used to seeing 1080p resolution or 60+ fps.  It's quite nice :evil:

And I can't tell you how much nicer it is to do photoshop & video editing on it compared to my old laptop.  Soooooooooooooooooo much faster :normal_smile :

Nice rig Chico. Welcome to the master race. I'm gaming on 2x 780 Classys on 3x 1440p screens. :wink_face:

What these specs?

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Chicolom/saved/3hwE

 

I have a huge backlog of games I need to play.  A bunch of triple A games like Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3, Crysis 3, Dead Space 3, Metro LL, etc. 

 

I stocked up during the Steam holiday sale though, so I've got plenty to choose from...

Thanks!  Praise be to Gaben ;)

 

Damn, that's a lot GPU power!

What monitor Chico? Nice specs in that beauty. Which headphone do you plan on hooking up to your Creative Z?
post #20466 of 37451

Nice. The only thing I'm looking to do to my rig at this point is drop in an R9 290X with a non-reference cooler.

Anything I miss, or need to respond to? Btw, the SB Z must be mailed back soon, so I'll be forced to set up the Omni. Lol. Work has finally begun slowing down.

 

I saw your reply on the Z/Zx/ZxR thread to me on the Omni. Still waiting for you to test it out before I sell off my SBZ and get the Omni as well. Take your time though. :regular_smile :

 

On a side note, sucks that the TurtleBeach i60's transmitter only works with the headset itself. Otherwise I'd be willing to try DTS HeadphoneX as a guinea pig.

My monitor is a 40" Samsung HDTV.

If I want to get fancy, I can match the colors up between the PC case and the bias light behind the screen. :eek:

A couple more pics here

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm rolling with the X1s right now.  Eventually I'll pick up another higher-end pair...probably the K812.

So far, I've edited the DNA Pro, Alpha Dog, SRH1840 reviews to reflect my more recent layout changes. Mainly, underlining sections, adding spoiler tags for the last sections (less main page clutter), as well as removing section scores and changing it to a one word description on how good/bad it is. I feel people pay way too much attention to the minute differences in score, so to keep people from obsessing over a .25 difference, I'll just say how good or bad an aspect of a headphone is. Scores will remain for the final scoring, that's it. I will TRY and update some of the older entries to reflect this, but don't expect a full guide overhaul.

Great idea, however just looking at the guide you may want to make it clear on all your word descriptions. For example is Fantastic better than amazing or is fantastic a step below amazing? 

 

Just a simple scale at the top would probably clear all this up for example:

Horrible->Bad->Ok->Good->Very Good->Fantastic->Amazing

 

The scale may be obvious to most, but generally my thought is always make it clear as possible. I do not know if you are trying to avoid this as it slightly mimics a regular scoring scheme. However I still think it gets the same points you are trying get across without people focusing on numbers as much.

Quite nice indeed...I gotta say, Fractal Design sure makes some sleek cases.

 

Indeed, I've taken 1920x1080 60 FPS to be the norm to the point where it's actually a rude awakening when I see a console version of a game in action and notice it struggling to keep above 30 FPS on sub-720p resolutions. Left 4 Dead 2 on X360 springs to mind...

At that rate, why settle for anything less than the SR-009?

 

Head-Fi definitely is not the place to be talked OUT OF buying things, at any rate! My wallet's hated me for it ever since...

What card or cards did you use?
