Kingston, you mean? :P

Minimap (to simulate COD HUD)
Chat box (again to simulate HUD)
Motion Planning (For complex scenarios)


Need to add:

Graphics
Sound effect database
Chat database
Misc introduction, credits, possibly score (mysql), facebook integration?
Make the intro, etc. as CoD fanboy stereotypical as possible. Oh yeah, throw in a taco or two.

After speaking with their PR team at length, I learned they view it as a sub-brand. They constantly refer to their brand as HyperX and only occasionally mention Kingston. So I've taken the habit of doing the same. It's basically a division within a company and they identify as themselves.

The prices for them are down by A LOT right now and the 7870 GHz editions are on sale every now and then for $140 after MIR. Better than the opposition Nvidia deal/cards by almost $100+.

If you just play games then yeah, 4GB. But if you like to multi task like a m******** and do a lot of strenous CAD stuff (or editing of media), then, you will want the 8GB. Someone I know, loves to play games in windows mode and leave them open, have Twitch Streaming in the background, multiple windows of a web browser (that schiit gets big), while skyping 24/7 on his laptop....and with photoshop and what not open to draw. If you are that guy, 4GB's isn't enough.

That seems like me...

On my old PC I have running:

 

- HTML server

- FTP server

- RDP server (Multiple sessions patch)

- File archiving (CIFS, etc)

 

I also have several 1080p videos open in Opera (Chrome), does not choke in League of Legends haha :D

 

Its setup a little weird though.  I bought a cache SSD and used it a real one.  (32GB)

So I moved appdata, pagefiles, temp, users to the HDD, and the SSD has the program/system files only.

And now I have a case for my next build. Picked up the Fractal Design R4 from Newegg for $80 shipped. I hear it's a very quiet case, has decent cable management and can easily fit everything I'm planning to shove inside. Pick up a couple extra fans and it should be a really nice machine.

Nice choice, I like Fractal's minimalism.  Doesn't the R4 come with white Fractal brand fans?

"Two Silent Series R2 fans included, featuring hydraulic bearings contributing to a longer life expectancy – Silent Series R2 retail fans will now come standard in all cases"

 

So sounds like it, yeah. The case has fan positions so I plan on adding a couple additional ones as well. I want that baby to hum as quietly as it can.

My third Cougar fan came today :)

 

I won't buy them at $20 each, but I will at $5 each. :rolleyes:

Ugh, I want NCASE to release the M1 so I can do a mITX build. That's basically my dream case except with a few flaws (one being that the PSU's airflow isn't isolated like the GPU is).

 

I really want to just make my own 90 degree rotation version of it (like the FT03 and FT03-Mini) because 90 degree orientation prevents long GPUs from bending and warping from that bend over time. Also it has a much smaller footprint.

Yay! My dad's friend's PC broke, so we're (I'm) building him a new one, and I'm pawning off my case and PSU to him. With that cash (and a couple Amazon GCs) I'm and getting a Corsair 350D and EVGA 650G PSU. Don't question my choice of PSU. Actually go ahead. My face right now:

This plus a cheap GPU could make a nice little basic computer for someone.

I have a question I've been wondering for a bit. If you have a good CPU such as the i5-4670k (which is what I have) what benefits are there to OCing? I got a CPU where I can have the option to do so if I wanted to but don't see the benefit to it unless I'm missing something.

I you have adequate cooling, overclocking obviously increases your clock speed (for all cores), which in hereby increases power, but also power consumption.

Not missing anything, and if you were, it was because you should have bought a better CPU!

Not exactly an 'enthusiast' response, but neither is the 4670k haha :D
