  1. Rewatching Joukamachi no Dandelion. I like this show way more than i really deserves for some reason.
  2. When you do more damage with an almost stock T29 than the T9s on your team... Must be NA East:nanoserb:

  3. Garbad, is the Obj. 430 not worth the grind? I may have made mistakes going to it, have I?
  4. F This whole thing has gone from silly to autisitc voted PNTSU
  5. That is an answer I can live with. Well reasoned and not attacking. 1) I don't build gaming computers that much, I mostly build Audio Production and Video/Graphics rendering systems. Firewalls/Servers I don't touch. Too much can go wrong, and I don't have the certs, nor do I want them, to understand the demands those systems need. 2) Trust me I know what you mean by most games don't work well on Quadro, if at all. It takes a lot of work to get it running. 3) As for power, I always preferred more head room than needed. I'd rather drop 200 on a solid tank of a PS now and not worry when I upgrade a system down the road. Keep in mind all the boxes I build have extra hardware on the PCI busses that will max them out. Multiple Pro-Tools and DSP cards will eat a lot of power. 4) Fair
  6. Just to start: Knowing this we have a baseline to build a system with. Baseline, meaning begging. Meaning this is all still very open. First, who in hell, in this day and age would run a Pentium 4? Knowing full well I mentioned this in a GAMING forum, not to many gamers are going to build a system not using an i5/7 or AMD X6xxx or higher CPU. So mentioning a P4 processor, meant for workstations 8 years ago, is digging for an excuse to rip on the idea. You even acknowledge the obvious differences in these CPUs (age, cores, architecture) meaning that you aren't willing, most likely, to discuss this in any manner than being a dick. So OK, I'll continue anyways. Second, did I mention clock speed in particular? No. I worded that wrong, and I'll admit that. I will clean the post up once I'm done writing it. I usually prefer to look at shaders versus core speed, as most cards don't go much above 1.08. The cards I use do, but they're rendering cards, so every rule is out the window with them. And if you can't find a GPU with 4Gb of Ram, you obviously don't know how to use search functions well. I find it funny, most of all, to see someone so well versed in computers not understand why having a larger than required PSU is usually an accepted, and often recommended, thing to do. I've never seen anyone run a PSU close to it's maximum power output not have some issues with heat or instability. I do understand that you can negate the instability of the rails under higher load using higher certifications such as Gold or Platinum, but it's never recommended. Ever read the little warranty card that comes with a PSU? It's stated quite clearly they do NOT accept service tickets or guarantees if you push the PSU to it's limit. Headroom is never a bad thing to have, even if it seems like an excessive amount. I'm wondering, have you ever built or serviced a computer? Or are you just a forum crusader that learned all of his technical knowledge from reading other people do this kind of work. And a counter like 'I built my computer' isn't quite good enough. I do this for a living, and never had a computer crash, fail, or run unstable because of hardware. You want to rip me on software, go ahead. I'm not a software person, I deal with hardware.
  7. From seeing what's going on around here lately with the number of people updating their systems, I thought I's offer some advise on new builds and upgrading older systems. While I may only be average in tanks, I do know a lot about computers (I spend 12 hours a day working on them) and have built a large number over my life (last count was about 70 or so). There are a few guidelines I use when building a system from scratch and updating a system to like-new. The build - How to select parts: This is ultimately the hardest part of a build, and the one you should spend the most time on. Putting the damner together is easy and only takes about 30 minutes. I'd recommend spending about 2 weeks doing some serious research and looking for parts. Read reviews, check forums, watch replays of the games you want to play to see waht they use; while the last one is not the best metric of how a part runs, it can help you with your selection, especially if you're torn between 2 parts. As for the parts themselves, what are your main aims with this system? -High quality and speed? -Not the best in FX, but solid? -Adaptability? These are the 3 major questions, but you also need to look a few more questions: -Online gaming (WoT, WoW, WT, etc etc) or Single player (Skyrim, Most RPGs on Steam)? -Sound? (Loud, quiet) -Temperature ? (Hell-esque? nice and low?) As for the first three, they are more determined by budget than any other factors. You can't realistically spend $600 on a computer and expect it to play Metro: Last Light on Max Settings. We'll ignore budget, as the formula I use to design builds is applicable regardless of price limit. Formula, you ask? You can break down a system by using this formula: (R=2xP) + ((Gp=.4P)+(Gr=.5R)) + (Pw=200*P) The fuck does that mean? Let's break this down, shall we? P = Processor, or CPU. The main mammajamma of the computer. If this is shit the computer is shit. Deal with it. R = RAM. This is the engine of your system. This moves the data around your system. Gp = Graphics Processor. The processor on your Graphics card (also known as GPU). It... processes graphics. You can also use it to mine bitcoin. Gr = Graphic RAM. It does what is says on the box, dad. Pw = Power Supply, or PSU. If you can't figure this out... wow. So in this equation, and the way I build a system, is from the CPU out. So I pick a value for the CPU based on speed. So in this case we'll user an i5 4460k, running at 3.7GHz. So in this equation, P = 3.7 Knowing this, now (R=2x3.7) + ((Gp= .4(3.7))+(Gr=.5R)) + (Pw=200*3.7) Do some work, this becomes (R=7.4) + ((Gp=1.48)+(Gr=3.7)) + (Pw=740) Some of these numbers seem bad... We'll clean this up. P=3.7; R=8 + (Gp=1.4 + Gr=4) + PW=750 So with this done, if you have a CPU running at 3.7GHz, then you want: 8Gb of RAM A Graphics card with minimum 1.4 GHz processor and 4Gb of RAM A PSU with 750w of power. Pretty simple. Keep in mind this is only a guideline and not a hard set process, as other factors will weigh in (An AMD system would lower these numbers, and a second GPU or higher clocked RAM would raise them). Knowing this we have a baseline to build a system with. I will be continuing this at a later time as I need food and some sleep.
  8. Thanks. The reload mods... that's the ingame. I have no mods installed. So I guess I'll uninstall WoT... The capping idea was to draw the opp. closer to the cap so that they had less space to work with and to the enemy team in general to react. The thought on the wait for the T32 was that I wanted him to commit comming around the hill by the cap to expose him to arty and anyone cutting across from the forest. I didn't expect the arty to be that close, or no-one to leave the forest, so it was a calculated risk. It could have paid off badly, so I lucked out. I definately got luck on a lot in that game.
  9. http://wotreplays.com/site/1598068#murovanka-poi_poi_oniichan-amx_13_75 A decent game, lucked out on some kills. Thoughts for an old KURO member? BTW, did you freeXP the 1375? It doesn't appear in your profile.
  10. Sadly I find myself listening to the Haunted Shores EP more than any Periphery release, but Harrison Fjord and Prelude/Bombfare are way more interesting
  11. Did you not see the bands I listen to? I said scare, not give me a stiffy.
  12. You should see their music videos.
