Default Latest tech purchase thread


I am just wondering how would you transport your desktop pc from one country to another 'safely'? I am from SEA and most likely going to the US in a year or so.

Just wondering if I should get a desktop now that I can carry it to the states without any parts getting rekted into pieces or should just wait until I am there to build one.

Remove large expansion cards.
Remove large CPU coolers.
Remove hard drives and wrap them in lots of padding.

I paid the normal price of $660.
I bought it for video rendering purposes, although being able to play CS:GO at infinite fps is nice.

^IKR?

I'll probably wait till DX12 to be more stable before I overhaul my rig; I'm planning my next upgrade at 2016/17 most likely, while relying on PS4 for most AAA games.

Running all games I need close to 144 fps on gtx970 1080p - also what the fuck do you mean that you blew 700 shekels on gpu for video rendering purposes.

If only games you play is from 3+ years ago that isn't hard (nothing wrong with that ofc). I could do that with my 770 given modest enough settings.

What do you mean what do I mean? I blow more money on a lot of things.

I bought a similar set of headphones for the first time only to find out I feel extremly sick when I have them on.

Well I had little money to burn, so I purchased a 2x8gb DDR3 ram for my server. What prompted me to buying it was the Resource Monitor seeing I don't have a single free RAM while the standby memory is over 4gb (I had 8gb ram before). Now I do see at least 300mb of free ram. The server (diskless server to be more precise) easily eats up 10gb of RAM as standby memory.

Now to sell this 1x8gb 1333 DDR3 ram...

Samsung Galaxy S4 16Gb black. Going to get a microSD expansion card when it arrives as well so I can actually fit more than 10 lossless albums on it.

I'm doing fine with my good old 650

My latest purchase was a new lg tv. No fancy smartness, just a nice 43" ips panel and a chromecast I had lying around to watch whatever I need. Pretty good quality for a <400

^hehe ever since I got my PS4 I haven't felt the need to upgrade

LG makes good panels for sure, I still like Sony ones best though
