I started a thread for fun, then a bunch "PC building veterans" *cough* AMD fanboys *cough* brought their AMD trash talk in here.


I can list you all the computers I've ever built to show you I'm as unbiased as humanly possible. Sadly you're either trolling or being too ******ed to actually see reasonable arguments. Internet arguments don't have to be pointless; I've had more than just one good argument on PC building with people over on /r/buildapc, but if one guy starts being a douche and there's no way to ignore him (downvote him to oblivion) it will fall into despair.

Take your AMD trash rant somewhere else, somewhere people don't know about computers.

This thread seems to be going off topic. While I think that BBG's attitude towards sticking to a particular brand is silly, perhaps instead of pointing it out the people that are, or were trying to actually help him could perhaps point out the best product from that particular brand, at a similar price range?

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

And, I said "no" with my foot. If they wanna push small very loud furnace with nothing special that stands out, that's up to them, but I'm not buying it. Maybe instead of pushing a point of view about a chipset I wouldn't give a second look at, they could have stayed on-topic.

Skip to 1:21, I couldn't get the video to start where I wanted it to.

Picking Nvidia isn't confirmation bias, it's quality assurance and AMD is just trash.

You just made it abundantly clear that you have no ****ing clue what confirmation bias is..
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=confirmation+bias
Your bias isn't necessarily for Nvidia, but against AMD.
And you should probably drop it already, because it's really dumb.
Quoted:
showing test bench video doesn't prove anything because a test bench isn't a standard gaming situation where Nvideo outshines the competition.

That's the only instance it was caught on video. There were many cards that were fried for normal people too, it just wasn't caught on video.
I started a thread for fun, then a bunch "PC building veterans" *cough* AMD fanboys *cough* brought their AMD trash talk in here.

I haven't bought an AMD product in years, currently sitting on Intel and Nvidia. Your claim about fanboy-ism is clearly false.
You're acting like a ****ing idiot, this is the internet, people will call you out on your ****.

Also one last note. You think nVidia doesn't have heat issues of their own? Try their gtx 460. That card could literally heat my bedroom through a winter in New Hampshire, and leave me sweating at night.

Yup, that's the "Thermi" architecture in action :)

That's a little harsh coming from a guy who clearly has no idea what the actual arguments about.


I read the thread. lol.

I didn't bother to post in this thread because I saw OP doesn't know what he's talking about, it's pointless to spoonefeed someone, if all information is available and easily found.

That said, I didn't imagine this thread will be this good. First time I see shill (or idiot) in action, probably later. Thanks for laughs, keep funposting :^)

Can we have a next MBIB option for the banana awards next year? I got my vote right here.

In all serious I've been thinking about creating my own gaming pc. I don't want to spend too much maybe up to 700 Canadian. Can someome do something that can run league well with some non graphic heavy steam games?

PM me with all the details (preferably all the specific games, but also things like possible size constraints or other things I have to keep it in mind), I'll discuss it with you. If you want you can also disclose other users in the discussion so you have some extra input, I just don't want OP in this.

If you can send it to me before midnight (my time, 30 minutes from this post) I'll be able to respond to you within 15 minutes (before I go to bed).

EDIT: I was bored so I made one anyway with some general outlines. It ended up surprisingly similar as the one I linked before in the thread. Can still PM me if you care to discuss more or want to avoid unnecessary discussion here.

this build is overkill for your purposes but it's the best graphics power you can get for that money
