Am I the only one here who pronounces "cache" as "kaysh?" It turns out that it is not a proper pronunciation. My professor seemed to ignore silently my (correct) answer to a question in class today because I said "kaysh." All this time I thought those who corrected me simply had money on the mind....

>> No.2009   [Delete]   [Edit]

Oh hey, I always thought it was pronounced that way too.
But according to http://www.howjsay.com/index.php?word=cache
It's pronounced the same way as "cash".

So every time I run music or video on my Vista partition, I notice it keeps changing my default media players. Every time I save it to open in one media player, it changes back later on. I also notice Vista refuses to save certain preferences like "do not show me this again" boxes. I click them, they keep coming back. Fucks this all about? Is there something I don't know about or does Vista really have the short term memory of a weed smoking hippie?

>> No.1998   [Delete]   [Edit]

Vista does indeed suck ass. At least XP or 7 doesn't make your computer blow up in your face.

>> No.2002   [Delete]   [Edit]

Run said media application as "administrator" and then associate the files from within the program.

ATI Radeon 5770. Anyone have one? How does it fair against the 5800 series? Should I spend the extra money for the 58XX? I'm buying one for heavy gaming, but kinda budgeted. If there isnt much impact, I'll stick to teh 5770.

>> No.1978   [Delete]   [Edit]


Although it's from back in June, it still can serve as a nice guidelines for comparison.

>> No.1991   [Delete]   [Edit]

Got a R5770 the other week, it's amazing, seriously. Not only does it run everything maxed at 1080p but the computer seems to blow out cool air now..

>> No.1999   [Delete]   [Edit]

dunno if you made your decision yet but get the GTS 450. It's around the same price or cheaper and it's better.

>> No.2001   [Delete]   [Edit]

Yeah I've had this for about 2 weeks now and am VERY pleased. And I don't know about better. I have watched videos on a ton of benchmark tests against other NVIDIA cards and the 5770 is about 50/50 against other NVIDIA midrange cards. As far as I am concerned (for what I use my machine for), this works great.

so I bought a 30 gb SDD drive some time ago to try this fancy pancy stuff out which I used to install vista ultimate x64 on.
big mistake, as I constanty have to manage the only 1 gb remainging free space. (fucking everything wants to be put on your c drive god dammit)

now I downloaded windows 7. will it fit on 30 gbs with at least a little free space to play around in? maybe gasp have my virtual memory on the same drive?

>> No.1974   [Delete]   [Edit]

That should be enough space.

>> No.1975   [Delete]   [Edit]

Well, if you don't feel like putting much on it, then fine. You won't even be able to fit that many games on it. I suggest you go get an Intel X-25M or a Crucial RealSSD 300 instead. The former is 160 GB, the latter is 250 GB. Both have very good performance, the latter is faster overall but the former is better in different in some areas and is cheaper too. You might as well sell/ditch the old one and upgrade. Windows 7 should handle the SSD better than Vista too.

Here's a link to a recent SSD roundup: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/windows-7-ssd-trim,2705.html

Can /tech/ suggest a decent mic?
I just got VoIP and Skype connected to a makeshift voice changer, but my laptop mic blows and so have the ones I've bought. I need a desktop mic with some range so that I don't need the thing shoved down my throat to pick up sound. I already have headphones coming out of my ass so I'm avoiding headsets, and 3.5mm jack would be best since it's a laptop and has limited USB ports.

I seem to pick up a lot of noise with analog microphones. Could just be my pc. I wouldn't suggest logitec though.

Crap, this mic picks up a lot of background fuzz. Really wishing I got >>1910

See if your computer has a noise reduction option. I seen that option in realtek software.

>> No.1965   [Delete]   [Edit]

It was enabled by default. Thanks for the suggestion though.

good evening /tech/nowizards, i need a new computer. nothing high-end, just decent enough to play games like dragon age, mass effect 2 etc on stable 60 frames. my budget is limited to 200-250€. maybe i can bring up a some more next month or so.

WHAT I NEED: Mainboard - RAM - CPU
don't worry about videocard. maybe a case and PSU would be neat soon, though my current ones are still doing their jobs.

assumingly good offers i've found yet:


also found some offers on Corsair 2GB DDR3 for about 45€

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

That first board sounds great and I support that triple core CPU you're getting. Corsair RAM is decent since they're good with cooling. G. Skill RAM is good too.

>> No.1934   [Delete]   [Edit]

i noticed that the first motherboard doesnt support Athlon II X3 CPUs. how about this one?

also maybe this chassis inclusive PSU

Also ich würde dir davon abraten AMD zu kaufen. Preisleistungsverhältnis sind sie recht gut aber nicht vergleichbar mit Intel. Was du an Geld beim Kauf für AMD-Produkte sparst haust du später mit Stromverbrauch wieder raus.

Falls du einen Conrad in der nähe hast, könnte dir vielleicht das hier zusprechen:

So i've been wondering, is FLAC really a superior compression format compared to MP3?

And even if it is, is it worth the time to transpose ones music collection from one format to FLAC?

What does /tech/ think on this?

>> No.1949   [Delete]   [Edit]


While you are 100% correct about how one should stick to MP3 for the most part as opposed to FLAC, it's not necessarily true that you need badass equipment to be able to tell the difference, though you do need something of an ear. I don't have any kind of badass or high end equipment and I can tell the difference, albeit it is very subtle. It's not something that is in-your-face and obvious and you do, as you've said, need an ear to be able to tell.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that one should have decent head/ear phones as well. Your 2 dollar ear buds from radio shack won't cut it (obviously) but you don't have to spend anything above like 30-40. You can buy some good phillips earbuds (what I use) for like 20-30 bucks depending on where you shop.

tl;dr - your ear, not your equipment is the deciding factor. Equipment just helps.

In particular, you would want an ear with the sensitivity to pass an ABX test ( http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=ABX ) between FLAC and 320kbps MP3. The differences between the two can be more or less pronounced depending on factors such as a track's genre.

>> No.1952   [Delete]   [Edit]

I'm going to have to be a stick in the mud and say I honestly cannot tell the difference, I really can't. And people consider me a audiophile. Oh well.

>> No.1953   [Delete]   [Edit]

Thank you. It's really not worth the bandwidth to download and disk space to store unless you deal with production or even sometimes DJing if you know what the fuck you're doing in the first place with again, proper equipment. Really good headphones will work as well though as >>1949 pointed out.

Thread closed. Everyone now knows everything about FLAC.

>> No.2013   [Delete]   [Edit]

if you want an optimal lossless version of your music for future reference there is no question about what you should be using.

Obviously not everything is worthy of being in FLAC on your drives, but you should NOT shun it for things like not hearing the difference yourself.
