Topic: updating build   Go to last post
Posted: Monday, June 23, 2014 3:54:01 PM(UTC)

a few years ago I received some great help on these forums building my own rig.

My favorite online game recently did some 're-optimizing' that somehow left me unable to open multiple clients without extreme slowdowns and I am looking to fix that problem. It seemed about time for an update anyway, I would prefer to just spend a little $, but I also don't want to save in the short term to pay more in the long.

My current build is:

MOBO: ASUS P7P55D-E LX

Processor: Intel i5 2.67 Ghz

Graphics Card: MSI twin frzr GTX 460

power  supply Corsair TX650w

 

 

I'm thinking of just adding more RAM, but possibly getting a new graphics card as well.

What would you recommend?

I live here.

Google wifi is a joke, imagine a free samples counter at a grocery store designed to make sure no one ever wants to buy your product.

If you don't have a mobile hot spot there is always starbucks, I guess, but google wifi is worse than useless.

Anna Eshoo (Congress woman for Santa Clara County, CA) is supporting it. If some sort of anti-piracy measure is going to go through, would this be a far better one? Seems like it to me, but not really sure.

A new anti-piracy act is making its way.

So I'm moving into a place where I will be sharing a wireless DSL router, and need to get a wireless adapter for my tower.

Any particular things to keep in mind, or any brand recommendations?

My motherboard: 

ASUS P7P55D-E LX LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel 

Besides having another free USB port, is there any reason to choose an expansion card vs. a USB adapter?

Thanks in advance.

This falls into the category of something I have no need for at all, and totally want anyway.

My phone is ridiculously old and dumb as a brick, so I've been thinking of upgrading.

I would like to be as budget conscious as possible, but at the same time not get annoyed with poor connection, browsing speed, or short battery life.

I think contract length and company might be as important as the device itself. I'm currently with ATT and was just reading an article about how they are the lowest ranked in customer satisfaction two years running (sounds about right with my experience of them).

This article was some what helpful, although for me its hard to know how to put a $ value to all the different features and figure out what I actually care about.
