Yeah I get you.

 

Not everyone needs super sensors or stuff. I can feel that. 

 

Being able to change the ergo shields and weights on my G9X is already good enough for me. :bigsmile_face:

 

I bought my mouse + keyboard both in 2013. $40 flash sale for the G9X ($99 back then) and paid $80 price match for the then new 2013 RAZER Blacwidow Ultimate keyboard. I wanted a Full Size kb with an accessory port on the side of it. 

 

The USB port on my keyboard is pretty useful for plugging my tablet in when I do homework so there is that lol.

actually i have also been searching for a kybd. i really came to a conclusion, there are only two that would please me as they should, cyborg v7, and mad catz strike 5

 

any of these will be good, and these two are the only ones that i would really like, i had tested many, but i like the kitchy yet usefull look and feel of cyborg mad catz products...

 

i thought that i needed a usb in the kybd, but after some thinking i am better buying a usb hub, that is powered by wall, as i have enough things that need charging, like a fiio x5, fiio e12a, and i think that i am going to add a few.

 

i need ports for kybd, external hdd, mouse, phone, fiio x5[DAC], fiio e12a [amp], usb key used for work. the best laptop has 4 usb input/output, while i need 7 that will be  used constantly.

hey got a question for you all.  so i saw a steall of a buy on a 270x so ordered.  in short im not getting it but it has been wanting a new card now even though im really not much of a gamer, currently use a 5550.

 

so should i get something, or just keep the money and wait?

 

ive looked at a 750ti, 260x, 270x, 285 and a 960.  cant decide between amd or nvidia as both have many reasons for and against.  for mainly power consumption reasons im drawn a hint more to nvidia.

 

in short is there a particularl sweet spot just now that i should really look into? 

 

oh and am in uk and if i order from ocuk ill get a slight discount of about a tenner.

Is there any other sad pandas out there in Arizona, who are too paranoid to overclock very far this time of year? 2500k with all Noctua cooling in a spacious Fractal case, but pushing above 65 degrees under load seems meh to me (mainly for longevity's sake).

The 270X is a sort of sweet spot where the cards are fairly cheap but not in the world of the $330 970GTXs

 

it depends on how much you paid for it really. $140 is about right or $95-$110 used. This is all in US dollars of course.

yeah the 270x here is more like £130, so about US$200.

 

tbhat this point im thinking of not bothering and just taking the refund from them.  its one thing to buy a crazy bargain card that you dont need but for the slight discount they are offering not sure i should bother.

A 2500k loaded at 65C is perfectly fine. I wouldn't go above a fully stressed temp of ~75/80 though.

Hey guys, I'm back from my self-imposed isolation! XD

 

So, as a serious question, it's really about time that I upgrade my computer audio.  Right now, I'm still on my old JBL Creature IIs and I'm kinda unsure whether I should go active or passive.  I'm also totally behind on audio gear, as the last time I seriously checked into things, the Klipsch ProMedia 2.0s were falling down hard due to QC issues.  From what little browsing I've done regarding active speakers, I heard that the Swan M50w is wonderful at the $350 budget I'm working at.  Has that changed recently?  Or does someone have a better passive setup I can work with?

you can make a better deal in active, specially if you are going to put the speakers on the desk, near walls, in an active near field monitor.

Care to be more specific?  I'm wanting to hear details right now, since that is what I need at the moment.

i liked audioengine a5+. very clear, strong bass, mids, treble, not that much soundstage, but they are near field monitors, you can keep them on the desk and sound nice.

 

i also kind of liked, and owned because were cheap,  but they were veiled, and too much bass solo7c from microlab. i would not recommend these at the price point, you can get better, but these can touch very high volumes, remain pretty clear, but have the dis-advantage of being very veiled..

If I'm seeing things right, though, the A5+ is out of my budget range.  I've got $350 flat to work with, and those things are $400.  Like the look of the wood one, though.

i have not heared something better at that price or lower.

 

this is these are the only ones i would truly and absolutley recomend.

 

Audioengine a2+, but the a5+ are worth the difference in price, in my own opinion. You really should test before buying, to see with what you are okay. but a5+ are a sweet spot for price/performance ratio.

 

Once you go down, you loose more performance than you are keeping money, once you go up, it costs much more to add performance.

The JBL LS305 is very good for the price, I bought a pair for my dad.  I think they raised their price from $240 to $300 for a pair but you might be able to find it on Massdrop for the old price.
