  1. Thank you for giving us the last 7 years worth of a great read. I'm quite intrigued on whatever you will write next.
  2. Really need to stay caught up with this. You don't look at it for a few weeks and another short novel get's added.
  3. I know exactly how you were feeling because I also just passed my board of review.
  4. KSK. I don't know to if I should hate you or love you right now. On the one hand you killed Ornie, but on the other you made me care enough about him that his death meant something. So I guess all I can say is thank you. Thank you for writing this story for us. totally not tearing up right now.
  5. Ya. About 140 man hours all told. I'm also in Venture crew now so Advisory instead of SM, but kind of the same thing.
  6. Finished up my Eagle project today. Just need to turn in my applications and board of review now.
  7. I'm with Elthy. Unless you can get a good deal on used stuff it would be better if you just saved up some more money. I say a minimum of $500.
  8. Went with Reusable Space Program since that's on of the first KSP series I watched.
  9. It would help if we knew what these other things were. Also on the topic of upgrades. I have an i5- 3570K LGA 1155 and I'm wondering if I should just dump it and grab skylake/whatever it is that comes after, or grab an i7-3770K, or just overclock it a bit.
  10. There's actually hyper advanced Orks.
  11. 1 stick was cheaper and it allows him to easily be able to add another 8gb and go dual channel at 16 gb. The PSU I chose because it is actually cheaper than the 450W and the same price as the 550W.
  12. With the budget you have your should go Intel. Here's a list I put together. It is closer to $100 than $750.

  13. Does it need windows? Also do you need peripherals? ie mouse, keyboard, monitor etc.
  14. Agreed. I would try and wait a few months to see what new cards come out. Also if I remember correctly Space Engineers is more CPU than GPU. So, 980ti and Fury-X would be overkill.
  15. Well it was only a matter of time before someone started disagreeing with the Kerm in freezer idea.
  16. I would drop the 16gb of ram down to 8 and grab a newer GPU. The one you picked will soon be 2 generations old.
  17. I can not get used to the trackpoint. it's just so fiddly. I also wish that they was stop changing the fn and ctrl keys.
  18. I myself am firmly in the 60hz IPS camp. I don't see the difference between 1ms response time and 4ms. I rather have the better colors. But ya it is your money. All we can do is make suggestions. I don't think Hz is changeable unless the monitor specifically allows it.
  19. I was just a bit curious on the 144hz thing. Don't necessarily disagree. Just thought that maybe you should also look at some 60hz ones like the UltraSharp I posted. As for the Nvidia thing. The most recent example was them lying about and then attempting to cover up the fact that the 970 really only has 3.5 gb of Ram and not the 4 that there were and still are advertising. Then there's also Nvidia gameworks. Which is a group of graphical tools designed to be a one size fits all kind of thing. It has been implemented well in the past some times, but a lot of the time it fails spectacularly casing a bunch of issues. Sometimes for everything except Nvidia cards and sometimes for all GPU's. There are tons of examples out there that probably explain things better than me.* *Note: I am biased against Nvidia, but tried to be as neutral as possible. It's also why I almost always only recommend AMD cards.
