Aug 1, 2012 Anyone have experience with "iBuyPower"? I'm planning on getting this in a month or two: http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Gamer_Mage_D335/w/70238 I'd like to know if you guys think they're a reputable company or not, though. I checked google for reviews and found this: http://www.resellerratings.com/store/iBUYPOWER 9.39 is pretty good, I guess, but I'd still like your opinions on 'em.Delmin8 Aug 1, 2012

Jul 23, 2012 Nvidea Geforce Keepler Tech Demo Hey guys check out this new tech demo Nvidea put out. I got to say from my end it looks amazing the hair especially is really impressive. Of course being able to run this tech demo requires you have a GTX 600 series card (hell two is "recommended" in SLI formation...). So if anyone can play the demo (I can't my Radeon HD 6850 is nowhere near that level) tell us what you think. http://www.geforce.com/games-applications/pc-applications/a-new-dawn/videosMoridin0 Jul 23, 2012

Jul 21, 2012 Building first PC for quality gaming HELP! Okay so I've never had a real gaming computer in my life. I've always used laptops and I decided I really wanted to upgrade. So I choose to build a desktop rather then buy a laptop. I do not know much about computers, and since this is a huge step for me in a purchase I want to make sure it is what it's worth. Please provide me with insight and details about this computer. The build further below is from http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/AMD_FX_8-Core_Configurator WHAT I WANT THIS COMPUTER TO DO: ~Run games like StarCraft II on max. Old Republic on high. World of WarCraft on Max. ~Run these games on those setting, Smoothly. My Budget is around 1000$-1200$ Please, will this build be able to handle the settings and run smoothly? Here's what I've chosen: ~Case: NZXT Lexa-S Gaming Case. ~Case Lighting(Unnecessary, but desired): Sleeved LED Case Lighting (Blue) ~Processor: AMD FX-8120 CPU (8x 3.10GHz/8MB L2 Cache ~Processor Cooling: Liquid CPU Cooling System (AMD) *ARC Dual Silent High Performance Fan (Push-Pull Airflow) ~Memory: 8GB (4 GB x2) DDR3-1600 Memory Module *Corsair or Major Brand ~Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 6790 *Crossfire mode (Dual Cards) ~ Mother Board: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3--AMD 970 ~ Mother Board USB/ SATA Interface: Default. ~Power Supply: 750 Watt- Corsair CMPSU-750AX OR 800 Watt Standard. (okay I want to know, is it okay to have a computer at the minimum wattage or at least 50 wattage above minimum. If it is okay to have it at minimum then I would choose the 750.) Well this is pretty much it. If you think I could add more to improve the quality, but also remain in my budget then please check out the website and create a build you believe is better. http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/AMD_FX_8-Core_Configurator I appreciate all answers and any kind of information will be useful!Evisceration97 Jul 21, 2012
Jul 21, 2012 Help / Feedback wanted :D. buying a new pc. Hiya All, so I want to get a new computer but I have very little experience in that field. Basically my budget is prolly somewhere in the 1k-1.5k range, i would need a monitor and keyboard as well but im not too worried about that. this is what i have in my head so far Graphics: pretty set on a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670. Seems like the best high performance bang for your buckc ard out there. obviously a little pricey but i want this computer to run everything smoothly for a good while and be able to fraps etc... Processor: Oh god please help me here. I've heard so many different opinions on this. Since this is a gaming computer are i5s better than i7s? does the processor really make that big of a difference. A lot of the computers I am looking at have something like a intel i7 - 3820 processor. Is that good or bad, well it hold back my graphics card? I really need suggestions here. Ram: most likely gonna get like 8gigs. I'm assuming thats plenty for a long time to come, correct? Every other part including where to buy it I still have no idea. I'm even willing to build it myself if it's doable for someone with limited knowledge but the ability to follow instructions. Help me plox :D. oh, and to make this starcraft related zerg up, protoss balanced, terran op. jk, but no one is ever on the hardware forum : /.Wolflink41 Jul 21, 2012
Jul 20, 2012 Need a New & Cheap Graphics Card Hey guys! I'm currently playing sc2 on a Dell Inspiron 545 and using the default graphics card which is far from decent. I have an average fps of 20 on the minimum graphics settings and that plummets to even lower when conflicts occur, making micro very hard. I want to get a graphics card for under 100$ that will at least allow me to play on low graphics detail on 4v4 matches without lag. If any computer specs are needed do not hesitate to ask, and last of all, THANK YOU :D!Swiss7 Jul 20, 2012

Jul 15, 2012 the ultimate rig cost isn't an issue, but i don't want to buy anything that isn't necessary for sc2. for example if a quad core will be enough to keep the fps at 60 during large engagements, then there's no need for a 6 core. this pc will be used strictly for sc2. basically, just tell me your dream sc2 rig. include what mouse/keyboard you would use. it should run sc2 on the highest possible settings and maintain at least 60 fps, even during large engagements.BornAgainDan39 Jul 15, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Macbook pro - Retina Just wondering if anyone has any opinion on this for gaming and general use. I'm probably going to pick one up but I'm a little weary because of the price. I have a main desktop PC and I'm usually not a fan of laptops but I've been really interested in the macbook lately. I'm hoping it'll turn out to be a good buy.Shahzad1 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 SC2 vs LoL ULTIMATE BATTLE!!!!!! Which game do you think is better in your opinion and why? I'll start it off In my opinion, Starcraft 2 is the better game by far. All of my friends play League of Legends and say it's the absolutely BEST game ever. However, unlike my friends, I find LoL the most boring and simple video games i have ever played. All you do is control a single unit, a champion that only has 4 abilities. BORING!!!!!!!!! There is no action and no satisfaction after winning a game. I also dislike because the games all last 20-30 minutes. UNBEARABLE!!!! I dont understand why people play it. I also dont understand how there can be Pro Gamers in this game. How do you get good at the game.Hellion36 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 11, 2012 In search of the perfect USB keyboard Way back when I build my computer, I was uninformed. I bought a motherboard without legacy support, which means it completely lacked PS/2 ports. While this isn't much of a problem for an ultra-polling logitech G9x mouse, it is a problem for keyboards. While playing Starcraft 2, and other games as well, I find myself losing commands due to ghosting. Apparently my $80 Razer Blackwidow isn't all it's cracked up to be and has only 2kro. Testing it with aquakeytest, sometimes if i press keys too rapidly in succession to each other no input even makes it to the OS. Starcraft 2 is a game designed specifically so that one misclick can cost you the game. I don't particularly like that, but if I lose, I'd like to be able to improve, not be subject to the restrictions of my own input devices and be held back by something other than myself. I have spent a few hours researching my options but still haven't come to a solution. One could be buy a new motherboard at $200+ because I use socket LGA 1366, which uses the expensive X58 chipset and then buy a gaming keyboard that uses nkro w/ ps/2, which would net me around $300+ and the trouble of transplanting having to back up my 2tb raid array and possibly having to reinstall everything due to a motherboard change, but this doesn't really sound a whole lot like fun. The other option is to find an exceptional USB Keyboard. My ideal keyboard would have the following: -Each key uses a diode for detection, eliminating ghosting issues from normal keyboard matrices. -Mechanical switch - either Cherry MX Black or Cherry MX Red, no real preference as to which. -nkro or 18kro via USB - Hopefully utilizing virtual USB hub w/ 3 virtual keyboards to eliminate the restriction of 6kro of the USB interface. Yes, I know I probably can get by with 6kro, but this work-around exists, and I'd like to take advantage of it. -Full size with at least 104 keys. I do not like keypadless keyboards. The current keyboards that seem to fit the bill are: 1) Thermaltake Meka G1 Pros: Uses Diodes, Cherry Black switches Cons: 6kro - lacks the nkro or 18kro technology. 2) Leopold Linear Touch Keyboard FC500R Pros: 18kro, Available in MX Cherry Reds and Blacks Cons: Claims 6kro, but people have mixed results from 6-18 with different motherboards, Don't know if it uses or needs Diodes for antighosting since key rollover is so high. 3) Ducky DK-9008-G2 Pros: 18kro via virtual USB hub/keyboard. Supposedly made in Cherry MX Black and Red switches. Cons: 18kro might be just the limited tiger edition, can't tell. Found no one with stock online. Don't know if it uses or needs Diodes for antighosting since key rollover is so high. 4) Noppoo Choc Pro Pros: nkro via virtual USB hub/keyboard. Supposedly available in MX cherry reds? Cons: Available only through shady chinese resellers online, may be some problems importing from china, possibly with tariffs or customs that I'm not too familiar with. Noppoo Choc Mini is much more available but not in full size, like the pro is. 5) Corsair K60 and K90 Pros: Uses diodes, Cherry MX Switches Cons: Not all mechanical. Esc key, Function keys and the 9 keys above the arrow keys are regular keys, not mechanical. Claims 20kro, but I can find no proof of that anywhere online, because the keyboard market is notorious for misleading customers. Since I use esc key and funcion keys in SC2, the fact that I want These are the fruits of my searches. Is there any keyboards I missed that seem to fit fit what I want? Does anyone know any more information on these keyboards? If you have one of the keyboards mentioned, and would like to test the key roll over capability of it here's a link to test it without having to download any software (that is unless you don't have flash) http://blog.controlspace.org/2010/08/n-key-rollover-what-it-is-and-how-to.html You can also download the aquakeytest just under the Microsoft test and test it that way. Thanks in advance if anyone has any input :)Defenestrate4 Jul 11, 2012

Jul 10, 2012 Hey Blizzard community! Looking for a laptop! Okay, so I'm getting my first gaming laptop and I need suggestions. I would get a desktop, however I need it for college. I'm not tech savvy so here it goes I want something around 1000 to 1800 ish. There's no definite limit but that's the range I would really like it I would like to run most modern games at around high with stable FPS atleast 45 I'd really like some bang for my buck (how generic) It'd be nice if it had a decent battery life off of gaming mode but it's not required I'd like to be able to stream games None of these are requirements, but they're some big cons for me. Please, I'd really like an opinion from someone who knows their information. (On a site note, why can't I log into the off-topic section of Blizzard's fcorums? Email, password, scII Cd key right? Strange it won't work....)Lolcopterz2 Jul 10, 2012
Jul 10, 2012 Help me decide which laptop to get... Hi, i'm on about $800 budget, and I have been looking at laptops that are smaller or around 15 inches for a while. At first, I found ASUS N53SM-AS51 (the i5 one) to be really nice, because of its 1920 x 1080 resolution. http://www.amazon.com/N53SM-ES72-15-6-Inch-Laptop-Silver-Aluminum/dp/B007BY57Y2/ref=pd_sim_pc_1 But recently, my friends have been telling me that resolution does not really matter for laptops, and that http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0085H63QU/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_g147_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0Q7VV0CJ016JX6ANHGP1&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846 is a much better deal, because of the better graphics card and because of 3rd gen i7. However, I'm still not convinced that the acer laptop is better than the asus. Can you guys tell me which one is better? i don't really care about graphics as long as i can run starcraft 2 on low at 70+ fps. and if there is a better laptop for this price, can you tell me? Thank you!lulaleil5 Jul 10, 2012

Jul 9, 2012 Will there be a new game console? Hello all, I was wondering what people would think about a new game console that's not from Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo (Excluding Sega). Do any of you think that this could happen and be successful? Do any of you see this coming in the foreseeable future? Perhaps as home computers become better and better with lower cost, they will become the best systems? Who knows? Discuss.Aztorak9 Jul 9, 2012

Jul 7, 2012 Computer Cooling Issues Playing SC2 I just picked up a copy of SC2 yesterday, and while I'm enjoying it, I've noticed that my computer gets very hot while I'm playing - hotter than when I'm playing anything else. I can run Skyrim, Diablo 3, WoW in a 25 man raid etc. all at ultra with no problems, but SC2 just seems to heat it up more than anything else. While doing a long campaign mission, I noticed that I suddenly was starting to get some visual lag and a bit of screen flickering. I assumed that was stemming from video card overheating, so I saved my game and quit immediately to let it cool off. I plan to lower my video settings and see if that helps, but I would like to play on ultra if possible. I built my computer myself, though I'm still quite a computer noob, and I don't know much about where the heating issue could come from. My best guess is it's my case's fault. It has the power supply on the bottom on the case rather than the top, and while that's great for balance and all, it makes it so my power supply fan and my video card fan are blowing in to each other. Would a better circulated case solve my problem? Luckily, I have some extra money on hand so I could afford to order a new one as long as it's not too spendy. If that is the case (haha... It's a pun!...), what would a good replacement case option be? Preferably mid tower, as a full tower wouldn't fit in my desk. Here's a list of some of my parts in case that helps: Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 (Mid Tower) Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Power Supply: Corsair 600-Watt Gaming Series GS600 Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K (with stock fan/heatsink) Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Intel Z68Kormex3 Jul 7, 2012
Jul 7, 2012 Buying a new desktop—will it play ultra? http://www.frys.com/product/6966047?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG This looks appealing for the price and also because its pre-made. Now, I know the graphics for this are nothing. I would obviously buy a graphics card. My ideal budget is $250-300, but I'd be willing to go up to $400 at max. I want to play SC2 at ultra (very) smoothly. Heck I'd shoot for Extreme if that's even feasible, but probably isn't. So I want to know what are good, compatible graphics cards? I am also probably going to buy extra RAM. I know very little about building computers, so for me, this is a compromise between fully building my own comp and buying a completely pre-made one.GlVlWarriorX2 Jul 7, 2012

Jul 4, 2012 DayZ Streaming Because why the hell not. http://www.twitch.tv/tomsonx#Tomsonx0 Jul 4, 2012
Jul 4, 2012 Streaming with 2 computers So I recently decided to buy a new computer and decided to go with the lenovo x220T tablet. While I believe this computer could stream fine by itself, the intelHD3000 isn't exactly a powerhouse, and may put more stress on my laptop then I would like. I also have a Desktop, but it definitely isn't up to streaming by itself, but It can run the game on medium with no problem, which is exactly what I want. The graphics card is only a geforce 8600gt, but it runs well on medium. My question is, If I buy a blackmagic shuttle will I be able to stream the content from my laptop and play the game on my desktop without suffering any problems through the low-end graphics card on my desktop. I can post information if requested Thanks in advance!Cheater3 Jul 4, 2012

Jul 4, 2012 How's this laptop look? So I have made multiple threads asking about new computers because I'm starting to get tired of the lag on the one I have now. I have finally decided that I might actually want a new laptop rather than a new computer that way I can bring it with me to places. I didn't want a real expensive one but maybe just one that can run low/medium with no lag. How does this look? The reviews said it runs other games well but I wanted to here from you guys. http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-A53Z-AS61-15-6-Inch-Laptop-Mocha/dp/B007MW13PA/?tag=amazons0d8-20Phantom2 Jul 4, 2012
Jul 3, 2012 Went from 2 monitors to 3 And now I lag like crazy in game. (Used to play all all maxed settings) Now I have to play on all low settings with textures maxed out still. I've also downloaded a few other programs since then, but just xSplit and displayfusion. Could any of these things caused my ginormous lag spike? I have an i5 at stock settings (it's unlocked, I just don't know how to overclock :P) And a His Radeon 6950 on max settings And 8 gigs of ram. Is it the hardware or the software? What do I need to do to fix this issue of mine? Please and Thank you.Greasy4 Jul 3, 2012
Jul 3, 2012 A New Laptop Hi everybody! I'm getting a laptop that will serve as my all-in-one for schoolwork and play. I already have one I'm looking at for $630, but I wanted to ask people who might know better. 1.) It must be a laptop 2.) I do not want a build-your-own recipe 3.) It must be under $800 4.) I would like a quad core, not an i5 with two cores. 5.) I do not need anything to run on High or Ultra 6.) I don't want to run stuff on low. 7.) I also want to be able to play minecraft, and I think that needs a decent graphics card right? The $630 has: Processor: AMD Quad-Core A8-3520M Accelerated Processor (2.5GHz/1.6GHz, 4MB L2 Cache) *question: what does 2.5GHz/1.6GHz mean? RAM: 6GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm) Drive: 500GB 7200 rpm Hard Drive Graphics: AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6000 Series Discrete-Class Graphics [HDMI, VGA] *since it is a series, I have no clue exactly what I'm getting. *Ask.com gave this answer: the 6000 series belong to the amd a4,a6,and a8 series. the amd a4 has 512 dedicated graphics and up to 2 gb shared graphics. the amd a6 has dedicated 1 gb graphics card with up to 2 gb integrated graphics, the amd a8 has two 1 gb dedicated Graphics card with up to 4 gb shared graphics. *I bolded the a4 because they will probably put in the cheapest one. Can anyone beat this for under $800?Zanon9 Jul 3, 2012

Jun 30, 2012 Will This PC run SCII on Ultra? AMD FX- 8150 Radeon HD 6850 Max ram I understand that the 8 cores might not optimize Sc2 performance, but I also need to use my computer for other tasks that require a multi core processor So, will this runs it on ultra at maybe 50- 60 fps?ShreyaSSSSM4 Jun 30, 2012
