:shutup:

I'd say it's a toss up between the fx4170 and a phenom 965be. Get whichever is cheaper. Other than that it looks like a good build.

Building a computer yourself isn't nearly as fun as I imagined, all I'm thinking is: "this'll never work." :P

Yeah, that went in fairly smoothly, but I had to use a bit more pressure to get the fan to click in that I'd like. Anyhoo, it's installing windows 7 now on the SSD.

It's updated, but there's defintely something wrong. There's random delays on the mouse and keyboard input.

Run dxdiag.  If you're using USB mouse and keyboard, chances are that Windows is taking input via DirectInput, so dxdiag should log any errors there.

Thanks, but turns out the unify receiver weren't too happy about being close to the wireless card, moved 'em up and it's now fine.

It's sort of pleasing to have Skyrim recommend the Ultra High Settings on the cheapest computer I've ever bought. Fuck you Dell and Compaq! :P

Indeed.  I was having a conversation the other day where the other person simply refused to believe me that Dells are insanely overpriced and always have been.  I think the only thing that's kept them afloat is their willingness to supply volume orders for schools and companies at cost.

It's been 5 years so I ask thee Languishites: what cheap upgrades can be made to have EU4/CK2/FM run a little faster? And if possible be able to run new-ish shooters at an acceptable fps (such as mass effect 2 and 3).

This might be the worst time ever to upgrade your video card.
I want you to panic

“Woke” is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.
