#14 Any tips for buying gaming headset with mic? in Hardware

I've had my pair of Sennheiser PC350 for several years now and they are great. The mic quality is amazing as well, it pretty much blocks any other outside noise unless you have a fan blaring in your face. Sound is great even through a mobo integrated solution...however if you have a high end sound card/amp that can drive them, you'll be surprised at how awesome they can really sound. You can still find them new on ebay/amazon for around $130-150. I know a few other TF2 players that have used this model and I've never heard anyone complain about it.

The successor model is now called Sennheiser G4ME ZERO (closed back noise isolating model), or the Sennheiser G4ME ONE (open back acoustic model). Both are around $250 i think...other than the new design the specs are pretty much identical to the PC350. So unless you want the latest look, save $100 and buy the older model.

#3 Powerline networking in Hardware

I used the NetGear powerline adapters at my first apartment. As smaka said they won't get the advertised bandwidth by any means, but in all honesty it worked great for gaming. It was way more reliable than wireless and ping was solid...the few times i plugged directly into the modem the ping difference was only 2-3ms. I used mine for almost 4 years without any issue.

I bought the Netgear XE102 model...which was the first one available at the time, so i'm sure there are better ones out there now. You can get a used pair of those on ebay however for like $20.

#11 Selling complete gaming computer in Hardware
manaI'm gonna override you here, Slin, sorry. I think this is fine.

EDIT: In case people are wondering why I overruled the lock, it's because that rule is meant to prevent abuse of service promotion. I don't consider hardware sales to be in that vein, unless it's somehow magically revealed that dennis is a hardware vendor.

Agree 100% - i've sold several laptops, a full gaming pc, and 2 monitors on here. I could probably get more on ebay, but i'd much rather give someone from the community a shot at getting it, even if i have to lose a little money.

#14 Where do u you find time to play tf2? in TF2 General Discussion

It was very difficult to balance personal time, let alone game time when my son was first born. I remember trying to play in a match when he was 3 weeks old and it was probably the dumbest thing i could have done. I played terribly and i'm sure my time would have been better spent with him. After that i just took a break from games for the most part. My wife and I set aside an hour or two each day so we could just do what we want and have a little peace and quiet. Regardless if it's games, tv, sports, friends...it's important to get some personal or alone time just to relax mentally. (Edit: i just noticed marxist did the same thing with his gf....very cool!)

You'll learn to manage your time as you go, and as you kid gets older it will be easier. As my son's gotten older i try to include him when i play a game. He's almost 4 now and he'll sit in a chair next to me while i play TF2, and he likes to pretend he's playing with me. Make it fun and interactive, and for the love of god turn voice chat off.

#21 ASUS VG248QE vs Benq XL2411Z in Hardware

#20 I've read that article before, in fact the numerous articles on that site are what prompted me to go ahead and get the mod done. I'm not here to argue with numbers - all i can simply say from my personal experience is it feels different, and better. I play battlefield 4 a lot, and that's where it's the most noticeable to me. For source games (TF2/CSGO) input lag feels no different, which is what i would assume is because of the high stability in FPS. In this instance, GSYNC just keeps the game looking prettier by eliminating any possible tearing or blur (the cosmetic side i mentioned earlier). It's possible it could also be this effect from GSYNC, which is way more apparent on a game with fluctuating FPS (ie. BF4), why i may feel i see a difference if there really isn't one.

#19 ASUS VG248QE vs Benq XL2411Z in Hardware
G-sync isn't really worth it if you're getting >120 frames.

I had the GSYNC mod done to my VG248QE out of pure curiosity. The thing i noticed the most is any type of motion blur is completely taken away. It's way better than the lightboost hack in my opinion because it introduces absolutely no feeling of mouse input lag at all (which is absolutely amazing). On top of that, the monitor doesn't have the extra dimming occur.

Tech's statement above holds true for the most part, if you can hold constant steady frames at that rate. I will say however playing a really demanding game, such as battlefield 4 multiplayer or Metro/Witcher, where you will get FPS fluctuation..it really cleans everything up and makes for a better experience. The elimination of tearing to me is a huge plus, but at this point it's more of a personal preference. Screen tearing is completely cosmetic and truly doesn't affect a game. Overall i'm happy i had the mod done - is it necessary upgrade? Not really - the change i saw from this was not as significant as 60hz to 120hz, but it's still a noticeable improvement (especially the mouse input lag removal). If you want the absolutely cleanest gaming experience, gsync will provide that for now...but that's up to you and your wallet.

#33 How do YOU practice? in TF2 General Discussion

DM servers, or 32 man insta spawn servers...i personally find it easier to help warmup aim when i constantly have targets. MGE is good if you can play against people as good or better than you over and over...it makes you think more outside the box if you get beat, and what you can try to adapt to others play-styles.

#63 lmao ooookkkkkk in TF2 General Discussion
unftf2 traders are a cancer

Best statement in the thread. I remember there was a guy on one of the forums (TF2 outpost maybe?) that was offended when he bought a flaming samurai hat for $2000 and couldn't sell it for more than that. Last time i checked, the ROI on digital hats wasn't exactly on the radar of the US economy.

I'm open to shipping to canada as long as you're cool with paying for it. I can get you a quote from USPS or Fedex, it may be a bit pricey though because of the weight.
