Btw, is PCI Express still common? That's what my computer has so if I wanted the katest graphic card, would it work?

Also welcome Phyxie, you should introduce yourselfhttp://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=32.msg3789 . :) Also don't forget about the modify button. :P

PCI E is still considered new. It should last you a while.

Edit. I'll also change the thread to ask about electronics I guess.

i5 2500K 3.3GHz 4-core, slightly overclocked (could go higher, but it runs too hot and I don't want to bother with non-stock cooling. It's already fast enough for me, anyway)
12GB DDR3, 1600 MHz? (ish, don't remember for sure)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti
Displays: 1920x1080, 1440x900
Arch Linux

3TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 (SATA) (main storage)
2×2TB Western Digital Elements / My Passport (USB3) (backups)
320GB Seagate Maxtor DiamondMax 21 (PATA) (backups)
80GB Seagate Maxtor DiamondMax 21 (PATA) (backups)

I only keep the PATA disks around because they still haven't died yet. :P


Did I completely miss the part about electronics or was that an edit? Either way heres my list of electronics

Nvidia Tegra Tablet
TI83, TI84, TI84+, TI84+CSE, TI89 Titanium
Rasppi B, Arduino Mega2560
an old LED billboard sign thingy
Wii U, Wii, Gamecubes, various SNES's and NES's
Homemade SNES cartridge EPROM programmer
24TB RAID controller I use for my server and just general storage
My RGB LED cube that was incredibly frustrating to build

This was an edit actually, since people started posting their other devices too. :)

I myself got a Nexus 5, Samsung i5510, iPod Touch 4 and several TI, Casio and HP graphic calculators. I also got many game consoles ranging from the Atari 2600 to the Xbox One.

My iPod Touch is broken, though, since I left it at 0% charge for far too long (almost 3 years)

One Plus One.
Nexus 4 (waiting to be used as debug device)
Lots of calculators
Lot of consiles?
2 Chinese Arduino Nano
A Telic 1B with din port (hello future physical Linux Terminal)


Are we listing electronics now?
Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 (this thing is too strong, I want a new one but it doesn't want to die :P)
Commodore 64 + diskdrive and more accesoires
NES (2 controllers + gun)
SNES (1 controller)
... I guess that's kind of it. Unless I can also list brick games.
ceci n'est pas une signature


How's the tegra? Does the game stream thing work well?

Ok cool, how's Android 5 on HTC? I have seen it on nexus 5 and 6 but I kinda wonder how it would be on a non google product.

It's great! I've heard a lot of people dislike it's new design but i like it.
A few thing don't work though, like the camera. I've had the
same problem before when i upgraded to 4.4 and a full wipe
should fix it, but i dont want to lose all my data :(.
(Note that this is not an official HTC update, i have a non-official CM12)

Further phone technical discussion could be continued there : http://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=200.0 (First time splitting a topic, Let's hope I didn't mess up anywhere)

EDIT : Yay 400 posts.


Well for me I think I have too much stuff... My current phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note (first of the name) with Cyanogenmod 11 and my current desktop computer (actually a laptop) is an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo T9300 @ 2.5GHz, 4GB RAM, 3 screens (by 3 screens I can only use 2 of them, my 19" CRT screen and my 32" HDTV, the lid is mostly always closed), nothing really fancy.

TI84 ? That doesn't exist, or I missed something ;)

The game streaming works very good for me with pretty much everything I've tried. I've tyested it with a few big AAA games but I really mainly use it to play gamecube games on dolphin and sometimes other emulators which is really nice because even though I could just get, for example, an snes emulator like SNESoid and play my games on that it is nice to be able to store every single ROM for every pre gamecube/ps2 consoles on my server and play them on my tablet anywhere.

Shhh pretend I just said  TI-83+ there are too many similar names, I get them mixed up sometimes.to be more specific I have 3 TI-84+'s and 2 TI-83's (one of which I tried overclocking the cpu and failed. The cpu is indeed 2.5 times faster but the LCD doesn't seem to like it.so I imaging I messed something up somewhere)

So um. Akatsuki (my desktop) :
i7 3770k (with a coolermaster hyper 612s, which is good enough to handle 3.9GHz turbo but I'll have to upgrade to watercooling if I of, already tried to but I eventually noticed that it ends up throttling under load).
16GB pc3-14900 ram
Asus p8z77-v pro
AMD 7970 GHz edition (sapphire board with a dual x cooler)
Akasa cobra 750w modular PSU (cable management ftw)
Zalman z11 plus case
HDD is a Seagate barracuda 2TB/7200 rpm

It's weak spots are cooling and storage for now. I need to upgrade eventually (and also get myself a sound card because my Intel HD onboard soundcard is semi broken). I don't really need to overclock for now though and I make up for the "slowness" of an HDD (175MB/s raw read speed lol) by finding software workarounds. Besides, Linux's filesystem caching makes it really fast with my 16GB ram once everything has settled.

As for other electronics I have a nexus 4 (might get a oneplus one tho), a nexus 7 (2012), an old iPod touch, a raspberry pi b (r2), a GameCube. And my calcs that are listed in my signature. :P
