post #95416 of 154462

Honestly, anything past 4GB of RAM at this present moment is overkill for a gaming rig. The lion's share of games right now are 32-bit, which means they cannot use more than 3GB of RAM, no matter what. This is going to change right around the corner, but even still, I doubt I will ever need more than the 8GB of RAM I have for the foreseeable future.

4gb...what is this? 2003?

Ram is so cheap nowadays.... Getting anything below 8 gb is just useless.

Woah, nice!

Are you sure that's enough RAM though? XP

As visible as a papercut is to your finger. Like 1-2cm long, papercut deep

 

Do you think they'd buy it if i said the scratch was a defect i missed? Since it is a refurbished laptop.

Eh, depends on what you're doing. If you're a multitasking mofo like me, then 8+ is nice, but if you only run one or two programs at a time, 4GB is plenty.

Sure, might as well give it a shot. Do it quick though. ;)

Like I said, if this scene had happened in any other anime, I would have hated it.

Or the scene with the MC and Shinobi in the bathroom....I don't know what to say.
What a mysterious anime.

I'll go and buy some more RAM next month. 4GB isn't really enough for my needs.....for example, Battlefield 4 needs 6GB to run stable. Right now it's crashing like every third round which is really poopy.

My idea of RAM is basically stick as much of it in your computer as you can afford or as much as your computer allows. And worry about the rest of the stuff later.

 

Gaming with a couple of fairly large pictures opened up in Photoshop is a pain if you only have 4GB of RAM, and you happen to only have a 32-bit OS. 8GB or 16GB happens to be the magic number for me (well I have a rig with 4GB, but that's an old rig), anything above seems like a waste, anything below is cute, but lame. Unless you plan to upgrade later.

Lol, that's basically how I feel about it too... It's just so bizarre, one can not fully explain the series to someone. 

 

The problem is that RAM is expensive now though mang!

(About $10 of that promo code was on the RAM. :tongue:)

Went ahead and tried making resin molds of my ear impressions... Wow. Fail.
My silicone negative had a rip and the resin just burst outta there loool. Well, it's kind of just for fun anyway but thats gonna be one hell of a cleanup to do. That contained is done for too.

(Yup, poured air-dry resin cause thats all that is accessible)

Were you able to work out a deal on the drivers for said CIEM? :D

Waiting on the holidays so we can start talking about something more solid. When the stuff in question are sitting half the continent away there's a limit to how much progress we can get xP

Though those aren't going to be CIEMs. These also are just testing to get better at things.

What? BF4 doesn't need anywhere near 6GB to run stable, the fact that DICE produced a half arsed port, collaborating with ATI and messing it up for non-ATI users says otherwise. They should've made BF4 a DLC to BF3 as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah I'm enjoying it but the storyline and characters are bit at loss for me as the last C&C game I played was I think Tiberium Wars or something, and before that C&C from 1999.

Just did some price comparison

 

The AMD 7870 or 7870 CrossfireX seems to be the best price to performance ratio right now considering its only $140.

 

I think I may just buy two as two in CrossFireX get about the same performance (92 approx) as the R9 290 but for $120 less. But of course, Vram mirroring and Crossfire has its own problems.

Oh, really? Nice! :D


Hmm, just found measurements for a lot of the basic STAX on some Russian audio site.

SR-202:

 

SR-303:

 

SR-404:

 

SR-507:

 

Is it me, or does the SR-2050 system (AKA the 202) look to have the best bass extension of the whole bunch?

I'd say these decently correlate with what I'm hearing on my Stax. Except not. Everything just sounds better on Stax than all the other gear I have! :D

Not to mention I'd probably have to buy a new PSU to handle CrossFire...

So AMD's GPUs finally got their **** together and do as well as Nvidia's cards for photerchopping and doing graphics intensive work?
