I don't have a side in the AMD vs. Nvidia thing.

My last four video cards have been fine. They've all been AMD, though that's more luck than anything. It just so happened that AMD had a slight lead in performance at whatever price point I was ...


Yeah I should rephrase. AMD CPUs were shit back in the day. I remember having a Athlon XP CPU and that thing overheated like crazy. AMD CPUs still have a heat problem but now there's better (and cheaper) cooling options.

AMD has always been behind Intel/Nvidia on everything. So that story hasn't changed. My particular problem was with the manufacturer of the card, a company called Powercolor, who I never heard of until this card went on sale. More popular manufacturers like Asus, MSI, etc. Make the exact same card but for $40+ more expensive and on top of that I got an additional $30 rebate. So what was normally a $180 video card I got for $119.

Powercolor had mixed reviews, but aside from the hdmi going out I didn't have any problems with support or getting my RMA and Rebate back. In fact I've had more tro ...

So I got my Radeon 7870 back. The fan seem a lot quieter than before and the HDMI is working. So yaaa getting what I paid for - in January - in April. Between shipping two RMAs for the damn thing I basically broke even with my rebate. It was still a good price for a video card ($119 after $30 rebate) but considering it took me almost 3 months to actually use it (partly my own fault but you know shit should not break down) idk if I should of just shelled out the extra $40 bucks and bought from a more reputable manufacturer.

No spoilers, but I'm pretty sure that Arya is going to grow up to become Xena Warrior Princess. I'm positive that's the direction the show is heading.

Obviously your monitor needs upgrading, also I say your ram would be the next thing that needs a boost. At least 8gb but 16gb is starting to be the norm for ram.


Depending on what you're using it for everything else could technically stay. If you're using this for gaming or mining you're going to want to upgrade the video card. Core 2 Duo is still a decent CPU for general computing, but I know the more intensive programs are going to recommend quad-core. processors. I'd research your motherboard and see what you can upgrade to. You wouldn't necessarily have to upgrade mobo.

Honestly I hope they don't try to make this too faithful to the comic. Because AMC isn't going to be able to bring Preacher full glory, it just can't.

What I hope they do is actually give comic fans brand new stories while borrowing from the comic's plot when needed.

I've been playing the heck out of this game it's seriously the most fun I've had in a first person shooter in a very, very, very long time. What console are you guys playing it on?

I'm playing on PC, but I have a Xbox One Beta Code if anyone wants it.

So adding the case fans dropped your CPU's idle temperature from 34 to 26C?


I thought it was a big drop too considering I'm running the stock heatsink/fan on my cpu. I'm going by the asus temp software that came with my mobo. I'm going to check my mobo or get some different software to see if it's any different.


Also my HDMI went out on me on my video card. I had the bright idea of pulling it out while I had a game paused and hadn't turned back on since. Since HDMI is what I wanted most I guess I'm going to now have to return it.

It looks like there are two mounts on the side, two on top, and one on the back. Is there a front fan mount?


Yes that's the case and there is a front fan mount. It took me a while to figure out how to access it because the damn case didn't come with any instructions whatsoever. It was also hard to find any real technical info on my case as well, but I did eventually find Thermaltake product page for it.

I think it was Warren Ellis that said if you want to know how to write comics then read Shakespeare. I paraphrased, but he was making a point about that you can't be a good creator in any medium if your only frame of reference is the said medium you're creating in.

Considering how weird Japanese societies are with relationships and otaku culture in general, I can totally see this being true.

In their defense though there's been a ton of horrible anime made in the past 20 years so it's not like the shit just started getting bad.

Ok so I'm not waiting any more.

I changed up the cpu and decided to go higher than the 6100/6300 since benchmark scores saying it's a decent jump in quality and only $30 more in price.

I've been sold on the cpu and mobo for a while now and past week has really been on trying to find the best deals. I'm really just interested in mid-tier gaming on this computer so this hardware topped with the $119 Radeon HD7850 I bought and using the same ram and HD's I already have gets me to a decent computer for under $500.

The big thing for me was deciding on a case and power supply. I had bou ...

I can do a Intel depending on the deal. I think I realize I'm going to have to raise my budget up some so I'm thinking $250 price range for cpu/mobo. Intel is hard to find in that range. But I'm not inflexible so if it's a good deal I may be willing to put down more.

Ok so I'm still gunning for cheap, but I'm going to go with a AMD FX-6300 just from all the review I've been reading I'm going to need that L3 cache.

AMD has always been behind Intel in regards to raw power, but I've never had a problem with AMD's processors and they're easily overclockable so combine that with their price that sells me.

I'm not the PC power user I once was and now PC games utilizes more GPU than CPU power so I don't foresee any real performance issues as long as I can play the current gen games on my 40 in HDTV with smooth 30 fps that should be enough for me.

Alright this is what I'm looking at. My only concern now is that I hope everything fits in this case good. I think this is pretty decent for now and the mobo should give me room to expand when I'm ready. ATX mobos should fit in mid tower cases right?

So I bought a Radeon HD 7850 only to find out the hard way that double-wide video cards don't fit in Dell's Midtower cases. The video card is a good deal and prices have varied on it over the months so I doubt I'll get a better deal anytime soon so I don't think I'll return it.

I guess my only option is to build a new pc.

So I need help. I really don't want to spend much money. Maybe $200 dollar range. Here's the hardware I have lying around.

Video Card: Radeon HD 7850 2gb
Memory: 4x Hynix 2GB DDR3 PC3 10600
Hard Drive: 2x 250gb HDDs 7200 RPM

I technically have a 400w PSU, but ...
