ooOo that's nice
I must say that looks like a very good choice you made... I like the Swappable option to..
As i have no requirements for that,Which is why i went with what i choosen..
jas but ur next one is going to be that one right
we r in the 21th century but i can't c cool stuf in this country
i have tried and fried my brains to buy one cpu water block
in this full country
My camera was a bit lacking so I went for one that's slightly better.
Quick, get a towel.
24GB. Just because.
the mem is just over kill
Yeah. The only reason I got it was so that I could swap back and fourth the SSDs from one machine to another (firmware updating, testing, and so fourth). I also have the single bay 3 1/2" version at work in a couple machines that I use for backups/storage of the critical machines (mine, my partners, and the accounting machine). I can bring that home in it's tray, and just pop it into a bay on one of these to create my off-site backups.
It may be overkill for most peoples useage.But people who do a huge amount of Photo editing do need a fair amout of ram...
So that could be a partial reason to Tak's choice.. I resume that as he has a new camera also...
Reasons for 24GB:
My fiancée can do as much video editing as she likes on my PC, especially as the GTX 570 allows GPU acceleration with Adobe CS5.
I run some virtual machines. I can now dedicate 4GB to a server OS without the slightest issue.
Have you seen the price of DDR3 now? £40 for 8GB. That's £5 per gigabyte.
What do you do with 24GB of RAM? Whatever the hell you want!
The whole camera thing came almost after the RAM but not I have all the resources I could ever want for processing pictures. My fiancée's a stop-motion animator and I fancy getting into photography so that goes hand-in-hand rather well.
My fiancée and I... hand-in-hand... I made a funny?
Hopefully you don't have any compatibility issues running that much RAM on that x58 board. Took me a long time to figure out the right combo of board and RAM manufacturer on clients builds to get the system to not only recognize that amount of RAM, but also run stable. Here's hoping for ya!
I tried to get one of those but the hoarders around here beat me to them. Read a lot of stories about store employees and even managers buying up all the stock to sell for profit, leaving none for customers. One store is supposed to be getting stock this coming week and I put my name down on the waiting list for one. If I'm lucky they'll get enough. Will be nice if the Android OS gets ported to it.
Been running it for a few days. I had a BSOD on the first day after I installed it but it's been stable ever since. Not sure what caused it either as Blue Screen View didn't even pick out any specific DLLs. Maybe Windows was just surprised lol. Everything else has been green, though; I've run some benchmarks and all seems A-OK. I even got a 3D Mark 11 score that was just 60 points under CJ.
Oh and Slugbug, apparently they were about 99% done with an Android port to the Touchpad. A colleague at my workplace was looking at getting one.
i've had it on very good authority that quite a lot of that did actually go on :bleh:
some scummy greedy folk out there
the thing itself is fab, once you've sorted out all of HP's mistakes
running mine at 1.5Ghz, it's nice and slick now. still one or two issues, and it's lacking some crucial apps (can't find anything that works the same as SplashTop for it), but to be fair, webOS is just a stop-gap until we get Android
nice stuff Tak !
Just got these in the mail, was a surprise since I didn't even get a shipping notice and was told they were out of stock. Good surprise though
I've got them hooked up to the tv in my room which is connected to a WD TV Live (don't have cable lol). Already have Z-5500/headphones for gaming and 9.1 home theater but my tv speakers are garbage and this system comes highly recommended. Sucks that you can't use a remote to control it.
nice speakers bro
Don't you have the home theatre speakers connected to the TV?
3D Plasma for home theater, regular plasma for bedroom (that's where these are). I don't use it much but it's nice to watch tv before bed. Currently making my way through the 90's cop show Homicide no need for the bells and whistles of surround sound on old programs.
I tested these speakers out with a few movies and they do sound pretty decent they can definitely play very loud and I had to run over to turn the volume dial down once gunshots starting going off in a movie :w00t: I don't plan on cranking them up just need to be able to hear some tv shows clearly. I wish these were 5.1 I'd sell my Z-5500 in a second if that were the case. The subwoofer in partcular is very subdued not that boomy crap Logitech makes.
this is going to be fun, arrived in the mail today:
that toy is it for u
the last two r a bit funny
What the F! Where did you get that version of Optimus he looks just like the original one that came out when I was a kid. Are they selling all the G1 Transformers now? That would be awesome.
