    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Pay someone to set on fire for you! That way they can at least not accuse you of setting it on fire yourself. Honestly, a second generation Nissan Micra is a way better car. (The first gen is great if you ever want to experience what it feels like getting stuck in mousetrap) Edit: Ok, maybe not WAY better, but better.

    They are keeping the prices inflated because they can. Seagate and Western Digital have about 85 percent of the market between them. Hard drive manufacturers have never made much money on their drives, the Thailand floods gave them the excuse to increase their margins.

    With the SSD prices we are seeing now, and with the advances made with the technology this year alone, I think WD and Seagate will soon be facing a real threat when it comes to market shares. Hopefully this will force them to lower their prices to where they were before the whole hard drive shortage.

    Just scared a deer off with a burst in the *albatross* from my VFC AK105. That's the only thing it's good for BTW. Useless *suitcase* rifle. Anyhow, made me smile and maybe he stays out of our garden for a while. If he doesn't, I will come after him with my Kukri the next time. He shall not eat the roses.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Was supposed to get my salary today as it's payday. Guess what? The bank has *fruitcage*ed up the transaction so I won't get my money until monday. This wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't for the fact that I'm going skiing in Italy tomorrow and need that cash in order to pay for a few important things. I *fruitcage* hate banks. The people who work there are lazy *albatrosses* who sit on their *albartroth* all day(well, pretty much) and they can't even make an automated transaction work properly. GRRRRR.

    This is why you don't buy MSI.

    The Computer Question Thread

    SB supports only supports dual channel memory. The X58(socket 1366) chipset also supports x16 PCI-E with two graphics cards plugged in. SB only support 16x single, 8x dual. However, the difference between 16x16x and 8x8x is just a few percent and doesn't really matter. Dual channel memory vs triple channel doesn't matter much either since you still have lots of memory and lots of bandwidth Sandy bridge CPUs overclocks much better than 1366 while running cooler, but you need a unlocked CPU to do any overclocking at all, i.e an i5 2500k or i7 2600k. Price also factors in. SB is cheaper and still offers stellar performance.

    Go Sandy bridge. 1366 is technically still better for performance with it's triple channel memory and high end 6 core CPUs. So upgrading from 1366 i5/i7 to SB doesn't make any sense, but if you're upgrading from a Core 2 Duo or as in my case, an AMD Athlon 64 (socket 939), it's the way to go. I would get: i5 2500k - overclocking, yay! 8GB Corsair 1600mhz - you want memory that runs at 1.5 volts as per Intel recommendations GTX 560 ti P67 or Z68 motherboard of your choice (read reviews!) Also, GTX 550 cards are ###### and are not worth the money. You could buy an AMD Radeon 6850 for that money and you'd get a MUCH better card. Also 2, Don't get a silly 6GB/s HDD, they arn't faster than a 3GB/s model. Why? Well, mechanical drives are too slow to even saturate SATA 2(3GB/s). So they sure as hell won't be any faster just because they support SATA 3(6GB/s) Also 3, Raid0 is useless, silly and still slower than a single SSD no matter what hard drives you use. If you want a fast HDD, get a SSD(Solid State Drive). Edit: if you want a good sound card with gaming as a primary, get the Creative X-fi Titanium HD. It's WAY better than the old Titanium. I would like to add that you're better off asking these questions on a dedicated PC enthusiast forum as you're more likely to get better help there. I hope all this made sense.
