My general stance on desktops: the bigger, the better! Makes it easier for me to work inside and cram more stuff into.

 

Ideally, I'd have a double-wide case like a Lian-Li PC-343B / PC-D8000, or the Caselabs Magnum double-wide variants, but those cost way more than I can justify for a case...

 

*notices that Newegg had a 20% off code for the PC-D8000, which is now out-of-stock and discontinued* Damn it! Oh well, the 800D isn't bad at all. (Except that power button. Good thing I had a spring lying around...)

I know how you feel there, believe me. It's just not with computer cases, usually.

 

No, it's stuff like the famed U2-NXT gimbal mod, FCC and FSSB force-sensing mods, the Hoffman Simped rudder pedals (while they were still being produced, anyway; producer died, company went out of business, and the last Simped F-16/C set I saw on eBay sold for $475 or so), the VKB Fat Black Mamba...about the only flight sim control stuff made to that quality level here in the 'States would be Precision Flight Controls, and their stuff caters more to General Aviation, civilian aircraft. Not a good fit for military jets and helicopters.

 

Now imagine how expensive 260-450 EUR for this stuff gets when converted to USD, and then add international shipping costs on top of that. I hate the current exchange rate...if only I had my own CNC mill, the knowledge and skill to use it, and plenty of metal to work with...

mATX will do. Titan fits in my mITX lol.

Go for mITX if you want to save space. Beware of cable management

I'll keep researching these builds.

I'm getting the Perixx on Christmas, but my questions is: The little dotted button on the left hand thumb-rest is a double-click button. Let's say I set that as a grenade key in BF3. Will the button somehow still double click,  or will it work as the key binding tells it to? Thanks. (I'm just worried that my money is gonna be wasted.)

My friend bought the Rat 7 Amd the laser just randomly stopped working after about a month. New one is 3 weeks in...time will tell but I've heard a lot of bad things about this line of mice
post #3097 of 7304

Stop being sheep and buy a Sidewinder/X5 off ebay for $10-$25.  Some listings are for the original Sidewinder which has a DPI LCD screen and weight adjustment.  Its a great mouse for $20, especially if its in good condition.

 

I bought a heavily used one (has shiny buttons and scratches) as a spare.  Clicks are good, works just like the one I bought new.

 

Again, please reconsider.  My younger brother is an avid BF3 player, and is a really good competitive player.  He played with a really bad team and was rank no. 4 or 5 before he retired due to "origin bundle f**s".  He used to use a $20 CM storm mouse, but now is using a Steelseries.

 

All of his gamer friends either use CM storm, Steelseries, or Zowie mice.

 

I just hate to see people give in to marketing and get an inferior product in return.  I don't care how many lights or buttons it has, it should just work.  No frayed wires, button issues, or driver glitches.  I wish I could find an IBM Model M level of mouse, still haven't.  I'd buy 10 abused Sidewinders over a deathadder any day. 

 

Don't be like my brother and spend over $100 on a mouse and mousepad lol

^Ahh given that this thread is on head fi it's easily relateable to un informed people giving into advertising and buying Beats right?  I feel the same way when some one spends an extra $50 for a "super clocked" card when they could just OC it the measly amount their self.   BF3 got extremely annoying to me when the humble bundle crumble happened.  I'm not playing any more FPS games until BF4 comes out though.

Probably the same mouse I have. The CM Storm Xornet. Actually pretty good for the $10 I paid.

The OC cards sometimes have more robust VRMs and stuff though. I find that you can often push the binned OC cards further than the stock ones. Only the binned ones mind you. The ones with a 2% OC and a crappy custom cooler and't worth schiit.

Speaking of VRMs, I remember lurking OCN and reading mentions of how people would take dead GTX 480s and somehow refit the VRM section on a GTX 580, since NVIDIA apparently used much less durable VRM hardware on the GTX 500 series in general.

 

Of course, they'd probably have the card waterblocked. Fermi really needs it.

 

Meanwhile, my next PC is slowly coming together...got everything ordered except the CPU. I'll probably take a ride to the local Micro Center for an i5-4670K once I've got everything else together. I do wish DDR3 wasn't so damned expensive now compared to the old prices (I've glimpsed Newegg reviews mentioning decent 16 GB sets for $50 each), but I have a feeling it's only going to keep getting more expensive as DDR4 gets introduced next year.

 

It's a good thing my GTX 480 came back to life, since it's what'll tide me over 'til they bring out Maxwell/GTX 800.

Yeah, I got 16GB of DDR3-1866 for ~£30 last year. Only problem is that it's rated for 1.65V...which didn't matter anyway since it was stable at 1.5V

I really wanted to like the mouse, but if I'm gonna waste $60 on a mouse that'll last me a month, then screw it.

Who needs a freakin' "gaming" mousepad? They don't have a difference. I'll prefer sliding my mouse over some puppies' faces any day. But anyway, the Perixx is only $35.

lol I'd prefer a larger than normal mouse pad because 1) I play at some what low of sensitivity and 2) I have a gigantic desk that looks some what bare with the little disney land mouse pad on it.

 

as for the RAT mouses being poop, mine's been fine for over 2 years now I know people rage and destroy their controllers all the time but is it common for people to get pissed when gaming on their PCs and slam their mouses on the table or to punch their keyboards? 

post #3105 of 7304

Buy a $200 keyboard, no one bats an eye.

 

Spend more than $60 on a mouse and everyone loses their mind.
