  1. Sorry to revive an old thread, but I've decided on custom building a computer. So far I've bought the Gigabyte motherboard 990FXA-UD3, an AMD 6100, and a Corsair Carbide 300R case. I'm thinking about getting a GeForce GTX-550 Ti from Gigabyte. I know this isn't a complete list, but I don't want to overspend when I go buy the hardware at Microcenter and so I'm taking it in strides. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
  2. I prefer HP, yes their laptops aren't their main product, but for their prices, they make a decent computer. I suggest this laptop, from the research I've done, this is a good laptop for the price. http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products/Laptops/HP-Pavilion/A3G47AV?HP-Pavilion-dv7t-7000-Quad-Edition-Entertainment-Notebook-PC I also think they are having a labor day sale, and you could qualify for an XBox. They also allow semi-customization, so you could change out the ram/graphics card/HHD/etc.
  3. I've been wanting to upgrade my old, crappy, desktop for a while now. I have a question though, is this a good computer for the cost. I wanted to custom build a computer, but upon further research, the price is slightly problematic. Hardware alone adds up to $1000, without an OS, monitor, or any other necessary parts. And the chance I screw up the assembly just adds to the possible price of a few hundred dollars. The computer I currently have my eyes on looks good, and its cheap for what you get (I think, I'm not that tech savvy). I want to buy it before the dreaded Oct. 26th release of Window
  4. I have a spare 75% coupon too. I probably won't use it either. It's not worth anything to me, and it's not worth a hat. Anyone with interest in it, send me a private message.
  5. I will vouch for the statement about GMod and Elder Scrolls. The two games, both GMod and the Elder Scrolls, both use the steam workshop which creates a less competitive environment. Basically, the steam workshop is just an application to upload community saves/weapons/maps etc. In addition the Steam Workshop forces an up-loader to use the Workshop instead of a more ego producing source such as ad-fly. The authors are an afterthought, the content is what matters. For example, in TF2, there are community weapons (made by an individual coder/texture artist), whose authors receive practically no
  6. I personally think the government should get its act together, stop piling up so much debt, and get back to work on space. In theory, who ever "owns" Mars might as well rule the world. Mars is full of helium-3 which is extremely rare on Earth and is valuable. It's also a virgin planet, full of iron, and other untouched precious metals. For all we know, we might find quantities of elements unheard of on Earth. Colonizing Mars might take many generations, but right now, very few nations are in a position to start the race to Mars, we should take advantage of that and take the lead. In theory
  7. Ya, um it died out after a week or so. In my opinion, it was mostly a publicity stunt and a massive fraud. Now the guy who made the documentary is in the jail house now for public masturbation along with several counts of vandalism. Most of the donation money didn't even go towards Africa. And then almost every Facebooker wanted America to just jump into Africa to stop this horrible menace(end sarcasm). In the long run, it could have been disastrous. Little operations like this can escalate into wars. Good thing everyone recovered their senses eventually. End the end, its a happy ending, the d
  8. Whats that distant screaming? I forgot what I was saying again. Oh well, I guess its nothing. For some reason I'm craving fish, I wonder if there's a seafood restaurant. Or maybe I'll catch one fresh. *A short time later* Where was that fishy smell earlier, its gone now, but maybe there's more fish there. I sure am craving fried fish fillet. Maybe catfish or something.
  9. Ok, thanks. I can breathe a lot easier now. What was I saying? Ah yes, something about fabric. Was it clotheslines, no. Maybe cotton, couldn't have been. Ah yes, something about metaphors, passwords, and the time and space continuum.
  10. This all seams very fishy. Peoples passwords becoming interwoven as though the fabric of time and space has torn the unfortunate few and their password and sowed them back together in a different interlinked order. This is very fishy and I smell something rotten going on....
  11. It appears the admins have locked your thread, but I would just like to say that I too would like to see our country as it were 100 years ago. Let's hear it for Polio! HOORAH! Fun times man, fun times...

  12. At this point, all I can say is, if we are becoming a species of immoral, lazy people who don't believe in hard work, we are going to go nowhere. Sometimes you have to take a few hits, but you have to get up and keep moving. America was built on freedom, aspiration, and hope. That money isn't going anywhere too useful. The US government is horrible at allocating resources succsefully, and waste them on needed projects. We simply can not have the government control our every move. I might just be a nostalgic freak, but what happened 100 years ago is what was the foundation for America. Before t
  13. You don't seem to grasp my point, he made that order without going thorugh congress, which no matter how constitutional the whole bill is, it still is unconstitutional because he didn't go through congress and have a vote on it. But a second reason to outsource businesses would be because the USA has some of the highest corperate tax rates in the world. Businesses don't like paying 10% of their profits to big brother. In addition, China has practically no labor laws (citation needed), and is sort of a grey country. They sometimes seem communist, but in actuality, they almost seem to be mor
  14. My point is is that OBAMA GAVE IMMUNITY TO ILLEGALS WITHOUT CONGRESS VOTING ON IT (keyword without congress). Again, my point is that American culture is almost non-existent. Again there is a keyword in my statement, NATURAL talent. Singing is natural, typing code into a computer is not. At this point, its not paranoia, the government has abused technology by tracking people, wiretapping them, and such. Only recently did it become illegal to track someone without a warrant. Regulation is not the answer. Another point of my argument is that America's industries are
  15. That's not my point of the argument, America is beginning to crumble, and culture is one of the first things beginning to fall. The last 50 years has turned America on its head.
