My old hard drive was a 1TB WD Black. I wouldn't mind replacing it with the same. It was a great drive.
As far as the GPU goes. The ones I have I got used from a friend. At the time I was still using my 8800GTS. These 295s are super power hungry, finicky in SLI, and slow to a crawl with DX11 games. I think if I got rid of these and went with a single card that could side grade even with these then I would be super happy.
Hey all! I've been so busy this last year or two I've hardly kept up with anything tech. Good news is right as tax time is coming I'm slowing down at work and getting into a groove so I can finally get back to some gaming. I'm looking to upgrade my system, but I'm a little out of date on hardware news.
Intel Core i5-2500K
16GBs DDR3 1600 (4 4GB sticks)
500GB 2.5in Western Digital Blue drive (Many I have bad luck with hard drives. Pulled this out of my netbook after my 1TB drive died)
Corsair 750TX Power supply
Windows 7/Linux Mint 16
3x 21.5" 1080p monitors.
I'm pretty happy with my CPU still. I have my watercooling set up that I'm not even using at the moment. So I should have some overclocking headroom in this guy. Same with my ram and mobo. I think I have another year on them.
Graphics cards are aging and use way to much power for how they run. Right now I'm using 2 of my monitors with just one in. I would like to upgrade to something that's not 6 years old.
I also want a faster hard drive and a SSD. Looking for a good bit of space on my SSD. At least 128GBs. Price with end up dictating how big it will be. A 1TB hard drive should last me. I think 2TB plus are pretty cheap now though.
My budget is around $1000 if it's worth going higher I can, but that's about were I wanna be. Just looking to be steered in the right direction. Thanks all!
My city is one of the cities included, but I cant pick up LTE anywhere. That being said HSPA+ is pretty fast.
I don't see this as a big deal. I helped a friend remove the camera from his phone a while back because it's not good enough to just have it off at his work. So for him to have his personal phone at work we had to take out the actual camera module. It's a pretty normal corporate mindset.
Yeah, that's what I love about it. I've tried a few roms. I could even try out the Ubuntu OS on this Nexus. It's not even close to be ready for daily use though.
I'm on android 4.2.2, but that's because I have the nexus 4. My wife has the galaxy S2 running 4.0.4. I know its a aging device, but it's still being sold by Boost were I bought it so I still feel it's kind of a shaft to not upgrade it. I might install cyanogenmod on it or something.
I hate this idea. I don't want to have to pick and choose were to get my online content based off who is paying my service provided.
Its not really my thing, but I'm sure it will be popular. I think it's a good match for them.
