    Battlefield 4

    Too late on not doing anything drastic. I have wanted to upgrade for some time now, and this seemed to be a good excuse. So, I just placed my order on an EVGA GTX 780 Classified :punk:

    Battlefield 4

    Damn the Battlefield franchise, damn it to hell. They are making me finally upgrade from my GTX 460sli setup. If the beta was a good example of how the graphics with live launch will be, I just can't push the game to the detail it requires :sad:

    Integrated Amp ~$1000 budget

    Well the Emotiva setup with the DAC is about $1700 landed to my door, so that is out of the running. It is still around $1250 to land just the Pre/Pro + Amp. ~$400 in shipping and duties

    Integrated Amp ~$1000 budget

    Thanks everyone, I have made up my mind to give the Emotiva a shot. I posed this same question in a few other forums, and even on the Hi-Fi sites, after adding in the Emotiva they all seem to lean that way over the integrated amps. It still baffles me that they can offer such a high end product...

    Integrated Amp ~$1000 budget

    I keep finding a lot of people mentioning how small the soundstage of the USP-1 is, not to mention the number of issues and parts failing. Their service is apparently amazing and all of problems seem to get resolved rather fast. I just wish I knew someone with some of their gear that I could...

    Integrated Amp ~$1000 budget

    Hmmm, To be honest, I just have an overall lack of overall knowledge in the Hi-Fi scene. I would be transitioning from a Stereo Receiver (Studio Standard by Fisher - still makes my speakers weep despite being over 20yrs old) My plan was to start with a current tech amp to get my feet wet and...

    Integrated Amp ~$1000 budget

    Unless I am missing something on their website, they don't have any Integrated Amps. They have a lot of pre-amps, sound processors and amps, but 0 integrated Amplifiers.

    Strange Lockup

    I had not heard of the short life of the drives before yesterday, I had a pretty good laugh when I read that they time bombed the drives on older firmware. I am not overly strong in programing at a machine code level, but I just can't see how on earth they managed to put something like this...

    Strange Lockup

    I went to the crucial forums and figured out the issue. After roughly 5100hrs the drive becomes unresponsive with older firmware. I hadn't realized how far behind I was with mine. I was at firmware version 0002, with the current at 004h, after upgrading the firmware the system is 100% Any...

    Strange Lockup

    Hi, So, last night I was playing Diablo 3 whilst on skype, and surfing the web. Out of no where the game locked up, however I was still able to communicate in skype as well as surf the web. About 1min later Skype logged me out, and the system then completely froze up, Blue screened and...

    Custom Loop in Desk

    Thanks a lot for the info, I had read / asked about it in other forums and have decided to cut it down to a single pump. Planning to run Pump->Rads->Reservoir->CPU for now, then drop the mobo and video cards in there between the cpu and the Pump. Also Dustin, as per the fittings via Fastenal...

    Custom Loop in Desk

    Hi, I am currently in the design phase of building a computer desk with my PC in it. I have only ran air cooling on PCs to date so I have 0 clue as to how to approach the water cooling side. The main reason for W/C on this project is: A: I have always wanted to have a water cooled system, but...
