    My boyfriend has that one Razer mouse with a keypad on it's side
    I cannot imagine working with something like that, that's way too many buttons for a mouse.

    Razer Naga. It's pretty useful if you use applications that utilise the numpad or number keys, but it's pretty useless for gaming.

    Thanks for reminding me that I wanted to do a photoshop with that mouse + a keyboard with keys from 1-6 and below it (So Y, H and N would be in, maybe U, J and M too.) so it would look like a mouse with a keyboard attached to it for extreme gayming.

    I got one a few years back, it was neat but swapping the batteries every 8 hours got annoying and it doesn't have onboard memory so you can't take your profiles with you (something I use as I take my mouse with me) so I replaced it with a G700 and sold it to a friend for $60, never looked back. Apparently the sensor died on him about a month after that, though he's not exactly a careful person.
    oh, the g700 has about everything I look for

    cool

    I would just trigger every button accidentally every few seconds. I'v noticed that i grip the mouse pretty hard when there is a tense moment in a game, So i would probably trigger all kinds of shit by using that

    Nah, 2 topside program buttons is enough for me....with 2 on the keyboard....and 3 on the headset

    Actually, some more buttons might be nice

    Get a microsoft arc touch, it's so good it combines the best controls (touch!) with extremely high latency wireless while having no grip at all, I don't regret buying this at all.

    Edited:

    3 on the headset
    This doesn't sound useful at all.

    I like my Arc touch mouse, I use it with my laptop. Obviously not a gaming mouse by any means, but it's very nice for everything else. Light gaming is also possible, it certainly beats the touch pad in my opinion.

    It's surprisingly useful actually. Apart from volume control, i got backward on media players (mostly spotify), audio mute and one unused. Mic mute got a separate button

    I only keep it because it looks good, seems to last forever on one charge and good wireless mice are expensive.

    Those look really uncomfortable to use.
    Are they just something to get used to or what?

    Got myself a new computer this week, and holy fuck, gaming is so much better when your fps is 60, not 30 and below.

    Just plugged in my netbook as it was only on 10% battery remaining, said it was going to take 11 hours to charge.

    What?!

    now (less than a minute later) it's saying 1 hr 36. Computers are weird.

    I regret going Ivy to some extent, wish I'd have just paid the extra 100 and gone with 2011 (i7 3820), 3570k blows away my 1090T but I dunno, going from 6 to 4 cores, regardless of speed just sits strangely in my head, I know that the 4-cores on this is faster than all 6 on the AMD but it doesn't feel right dammit.
    2011 is so large, has that dapper quad-channel RAM layout and I can say "X79 baby", although the HD4000 is a real life saver so far.

    Is it 2011 or 1155 that's now 'dead'? I thought it was 1155 and 2011 still had the 22nm 6 and 8 cores coming out soonish, but someone said otherwise.
    On another note, we should get a H&S post yourself going, I'd like to see who I'm speaking to, it'll probably end up with loads of pictures of BRT though.

    I use the CPU cooler on the top for my i7.

    Because I had no Idea what I as doing, when I built my pc.

    Atleast it works.

    Are we talking about the G930/G35? I have a G930 and it's the best headset I've ever owned, although the fake leather on the earcups started to crack about a month ago (16 months after I got it) so I opened a Logitech support ticket and asked for replacement pads, but they wanted to replace the whole thing (but they covered shipping via a prepaid UPS label), so I sent it off and just got the replacement Tuesday, the whole process taking under 2 weeks. I'm on vacation now so I had a friend grab it for me until I'm back.

    Edited:

    Because a $30 aftermarket one will drop your temps by another 10-20 degrees C (more if you're really pushing an OC and use good paste like MX-4)

    Athlon XP 2000+ to a Q6600.
    It was quite awesome.
    Soon I will be going from a Q6600 to either an Ivy i7 or 2x SB-EP Xeon. It will be quite awesome.
