Finally accepted into university in one of the courses I wanted!

 

Grats!

 

Here's what I just got in the mail, along with a stack of doujin CD's and $800 worth of transistors.

 

 

I need to look for a SATA cable to plug in my CD drive again, I took it out because a friend needed one to install a SSD. tongue.gif

$800 in transistors and you don't have a freaking spare SATA cable? blink.gif

Pics of the transistors? Lol

You guys sure have expensive Uni. $5000 a year is quite high.

I'll be entering a University of Tech in France (I've applied to a few, answers will be given in late May to early June) and it ranges from 160 Euros to 500 Euros a year for public universities.

Private ones though, they are from around 1000 Euros a year to 5000 Euros a year.

 

Anyway, I've been to the Headfonia store and I met Mike, I only talked a bit to him because he was quite busy and need to go off.

In his shop I tried the Fostex TH600, STAX SRS-002, V-Moda M100, V-Moda LP2, ALO International Amp and Portaphile 627X.

I'll post my impressions later on.

Dayum, that's an epic amount of transistors! What are you going to be using them all again for?

Yep, uni is quite expensive in the states. Mine all in all with all applicable fees and room and board is $28,000. Then again, the government probably subsidizes tuition much more in Europe than in the US.

Please.

They are ported games running on emulators.

They will of course be like that.

Do not base performance you need off an emulator

yea OFC, the emulator is why I need it. I know what kind of machines runs them at full speed. A damn powerful one because there's SO much to emulate. Besides I've told u guys before I have lagg in Fire Fall and a number of other games. It's clear to me I need a better rig. Still thanks for the insight. Non the less

Just the nature of the beast. 

 

 

on a completely unrelated note. I see Happy Birthdays being thrown around. So...HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the celebrants! biggrin.gif

well I've seen i7's overclocked to hell and back run game cube at 100% smooth. I run around 50 fps so it's much more that I need. Although more power= better performance in emulators. Both the gpu and cpu work together. I've maxed by gpu to 100% load on ps2 emulation before... so it's obvious to me I need a better cpu,. In addition when I first oc my gpu I got better performance in the emulator, not much but clear improvement

 

and I'm not upscaling I'm re rendering, and again I've seen how more cpu an gpu processing has improved perfmance on my machine so my logic stands >.>

>.> thank good ness for cheap souther eastern US schools, still inder USD 4000 a semester for me, and the state still covers everything! 

post #73285 of 157532

come to think about it, I forgot about the miscellaneous fees

 

now that's worse

 

total is almost SGD40000 for four years...

post #73286 of 157532

Mine is AUD1350 per subject, so 1350 x 24 subjects in total = AUD32400 I have to pay back for my uni courses once completed. Not to mention another $25k for a masters degree I plan on doing after.

That's worth $800?? You've gotta be kidding me......
btw I bought 360 transistors for P-T and they cost $32,

then again 270 of them are small TO-92 ones.

and I thought 5k was quite cheap for Unis.

This, though if they don't shaft their customers they don't have any money to continue making anime :S
Haha, do you have an ecchi wallpaper or something?
Wow, ganbatte! Better get off HF and try and focus on studying...
Lol, I think that's just because our government knows how to regulate just enough wink.gif
Yes i do.
Ecchi

Ah crud.  I have to admit that I'm pretty out of the scene this month.  All the spare time I don't spend Skyping and watching Battlestar Galactica (of all things) I'm over at avsforum talking about subwoofers and room measurements rolleyes.gif

www.avsforum.com/u/8404792/joe0bloggs

But I'll be back soon!  As soon as I finish BSG... which will probably be after this month's headphone expo...
Welcome back
