and as for it being a "fact" that it helps the country, lets just say that even with this new system suposedly designed to curb healthcare costs, the healthcare costs are STILL rising, but now more people are paying for it as well, so it effectively made the industry more wealthy and made many poor people more poor.

not exactly. what they did was make it mandatory to carry insurance from private insurers and then subsidized some of the cost for many who they deemed unable to afford it while fining anyone who is uninsured... what this means is that if you ACTUALLY cant afford the cost, then you are still getting fined anyway. Theres a ton of people, myself included, that fall into that hole... and so i am uninsured AND being penalized because im too broke... the reality is that my employer offers health insurance, which makes me unqualified for the subsidies, however, its $40 a week for that insurance and then by accepting it i lose another $1.7/hr in a special subsidy to my pay as a contracted worker... which equates to about $100 a week for me that i lose by getting insurance. Im a single guy with a crappy job, so thats definitely not affordable. So yes, obamacare is crap and was poorly executed. it should be a public system and not this private insurer with guranteed customers crap we got.

i5 will crush the fx in games. it sees higher minimum fps and thus less frame rate spikes that show up on screen.

He was forced into the bail out right off the batt. alot of that is due to Bush and even a little due to old clinton policies.... that said, he sucks for other reasons like this Obamacare crap that became a new tax on us and all hs social agenda crap... I like his Iran deal and i liked part of the bail out (would be better if the regulations governing the aftermath were far more strict). His management style is crap though... and is unfortunately a big influence on the crap tastic NY governor that is using the same strategies to force junk legislation on us in our state.

Also, none of this matters as much as your router... Its called a gateway for a reason

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is Lan chipset really matter?"

  • 57 months ago

Yes and no. Depends on your needs...

Intel has the greatest OS support and just works. Realtek is solid as well and tends to focus a bit more on certain traffic types for better speeds to most desktop users. Killer is specifically optimized for game play, and allows user configuration of priorities based on apps as well as other benefits, but you must install the driver and are typically screwed if not running Windows.

That's all general... There's a ton more going on, but that should be enough to give a rough idea for consumer Lan chips built into consumer motherboards... When your talking server or add on networking components, that's a totally different ball game...

The Web site is trying to compete with newegg and Amazon while the store is competing with other local shops... Walmart does it too. Microcenter which is nowhere neer me seems to do the opposite by advertising low prices online that can only be had in store lol.

assuming you plan to eventually overclock, go bigger on that psu. 700-800w would be ideal.

other than that, i cant say anything about the cpu cooler as ive never used that one, but the rest looks ok.

ya, that will play it on lower settings very well, but nowhere neer max. a 7950 or 760 could get some great settings going, but thats 2 generations newer hardware and still not maxed, just good looking.

if you mean 980, yes. if you mean 980ti, definitely. if you mean 280x, thats really the minimum id recommend right now... ive had mine for 2 years almost, so it was worth it, but i would call that more a minimum to aim for these days if you want to keep the ability to run newer games at higher settings another couple years. a 290x or a 390 is a much better option now.

Arma is a different beast than most due to the insane draw distances available.... Get the best you can afford because this game can really take a toll... that said, i play it maxed out at 1080p (except certain distance sliders) with a 280x, and on high at 4k with much lower but still smooth frame rates.

if you get at least a 290/390 or 970, you will be ok, but more power wont hurt.

i like realism, so i chase the best resolution and detail i can get... that said, it has to be smooth, especially fps games and racing games. i dont mind a small stutter on occassion in an RPG, but its a deal breaker in a good FPS or if it takes you into a wall in a racing game.

double the ram, add a second 970 (or swap to 980ti), upgrade the psu if you go sli... thats prett much all id bother with. Or you can do a motherboard/ram/cpu swap for z170/ddr4/6700K

Comment reply on Forum Topic "yet another 1080p 144hz vs 1440p ips 60hz"

  • 57 months ago

the 1440p ips @ 60hz will likely be the best for you. it will look sooooooo much better, and dont let the 60hz fool you as 60fps is still the standard for a reason and your not competitng, so the minor advantage it may give in CSGO or something wont mean much to you.

so its worthless then... same price as the better version... UNLESS its shown to support oc, and does so very very well.... 980ti put to shame kinda very well... otherwise its pointless. they should have just gimped it for the $500 market
