    Thread: What website/app ideas do you have?

    You obviously haven't sold anything on eBay before. Their fees are even worse. My small-time trading company sells on both.

    Thread: What website/app ideas do you have?

    I probably wouldn't agree with that sentiment, I see a lot of listings but don't think there's a lot of sales. And a huge amount of frustration on Facebook.

    I'd probably suggest they either list...

    TradeMe competitor.

    A good one.

    One that doesn't add a thousand clicks in order to try and nickle and dime you every step of the way like TradeMe does. Minimal effort to create/manage listings....

    Thread: Ever not played a Game because Its too Violent?

    No but I haven't really come across any games that were wildly violent AND fun to play.

    I've played a couple that were wildly violent, but the whole game was built around that idea and they forgot...

    Uh, yes you did. Unless you're also saying i7s are a niche market and worse in every way than a 2700x.



    You made them out as if Xeons were somehow different.

    4 years and no evidence of it being manufactured. Sounds like the ban on automatic weapons works.

    Thread: Objecting to Gun Confiscation

    That verifies what I said. They're freaking out over 100 guns.

    100. Some people in America have 100 guns on their own. That's a massive reduction in supply.

    If 100 guns went missing in America...

    On the reverse of that X series Intel consumer chips were usually rebranded Xeons, which is why they used socket 2011.

    It's my understanding that they're exactly the same, if anything, slightly better version of the architecture they're based on (eg, Sandy Bridge-E was released between Sandy and Ivy and was...

    Thread: Better to sell whole build or split?

    Pull out the RAM, motherboard and CPU and sell it separately.

    3770K and Z77 are two terms people are apparently still familiar with and they go for a mint on TradeMe.

    Yeah, that's a good consideration. Do those get applied by default?

    Cool, so not really.

    It's not faster RAM if you can run half as many channels, it's much slower RAM overall, and ECC isn't mandatory, the Xeon will run non-ECC RAM fine.

    Thread: Which companies to avoid?

    Guessed as much. Everyone knew there was fine print to immediately render it a mediocre deal which he was conveniently omitting.
