The only issue with them is that the mini-USB port isn't as durable, so when you remove it, pull straight out instead of to the side. If you do mess it up, you can easily fix it with some tape or solder. Just be careful.

You're like a slinky. Good for nothing, but you bring a smile to my face when I push you down the stairs.

That rosewill one looks nice, thanks for the help!
I'm using this. The lights are customize-able through software. It's about $80 I think.

No thanks.

Get a mechanical keyboard with that money instead.

My laptop has to be set up in the living room....so a regular dinner table. It's not really used though.

I don't have anything worth posting, but go for a cheap Ikea desk or something.

  • 10.30.2012 8:38 PM PDT

That's what I wanted to go with, but I'm hoping to eventually get two more monitors so I need a fairly wide desk to accommodate it. Probably going to have to build one.

All of them.

Perhaps this? I don't know.

Ikea?

Hmmm...I'd reconsider, Swedes are notorious for being perfidious.

That's the point; they're dirt cheap.

So, I need to pick out a good solid state drive for Christmas. I'd like a 128/120GB one, but I don't know what brands are the best to buy from. I'd like one that wont give out on me because I've heard the ones from OCZ burn out. Thanks.
Samsung 830.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/lKoR Hey guys tell me what you think. Keep in mind I'm on a really tight budget and I'm buying the processor from Microcenter.
Everything looks fine. If you could squeeze out another 15ish dollars, you could get 8GBs of RAM. But if you can't, then get this instead. The only difference is mine has dual channel RAM so it'll just be faster.
I was thinking I would buy another 4 gb stick in a month or so.
Just pay the extra $10 or so and just get the 8GB now then.
Also, just to let you know, your case doesn't have front panel USB 3 ports and your motherboard does, so you might want a new case.
Thanks for the heads up, didn't notice that. Any suggestions for a case below $60?

I like the corsair 200r or source 210 elite

I have an Ikea table that looks like it's going to collapse at any time...

This.

Bought a desk and a leather swivel chair from Ikea for less than £80 total.

Make sure you get one that isn't defective. Mine is unfortunately, couldn't bother sending it back.

Hello, friends!
I have an idea.
an incase the Webmaster nukes the flood to pieces, this thread would be gone.
I suggest we start a group.
The group should cover anything PC:
Gaming
Construction
Maintenance
Gaming nights
Tips and Tricks
and more
what do you guys think?

  • 10.31.2012 4:07 AM PDT

Why would that happen?

There's probably tons of dead PC groups already

The reason this is still alive is because it's in the flood

I don't have one, but Ikea Galant desks look pretty damn nice.

Comes in corner or straight, different colours, good size, really wide and looks and feels sturdy. It ain't too expensive either.

we need a desk building thread.

I'm sure they'd give a warning if they nuked the Flood. Even if the Flood gets nuked, a group won't help anything, as it will probably still just be us.

Yup

Our activity comes from The Flood.

No Flood = no activity

Now IF The Flood gets nuked, then we can move over to like....TFS or something and get permission for a pinned thread there. TFS is one of the more active, if not the most active, pure-Floodian group out there. So if The Flood goes down...TFS is where everybody will be heading.
