Little bored, so I thought I'd ask - Do any of you have any expensive/cool/fancy/etc PC Peripherals? Stuff like cool mouses/keyboards/headset etc. My mouse and keyboard are both kind of crap, but I have a gaming keypad type...thing.. It's by Razer, and it's called the "Nostromo". Feel free to list any peripherals you have!

I don't use a mouse but I really like the look of that thing. Everything I do is done on my shitty Acer laptop. A screw fell out of the bottom the other day. Yep. But for £500 the specs are amazing for a laptop. It runs SFM and exports shit just fine. I don't have any neato PC stuff apart from my wireless thingy used for Xbox controllers so I can play LoL with a 360 controller and make my team rage at me. I do have a USB Mustang Guitar designed for Rock Band though, if that counts. I use a USB/MIDI and can play guitar with it on my laptop. It's pretty neato because it doesn't have strings, just a fuck load of buttons.

I've got a pretty good gaming rig, but it could use an update. Specs: [list:2352q3c5] [*:2352q3c5]Intel Core i7 920[/*:m:2352q3c5] [*:2352q3c5]6GB of DDR3 memory[/*:m:2352q3c5] [*:2352q3c5]AMD Radeon HD 5870[/*:m:2352q3c5] [*:2352q3c5]80GB SSD[/*:m:2352q3c5] [*:2352q3c5]3TB HDD at 5000rpm[/*:m:2352q3c5] [*:2352q3c5]250GB HDD at 7200rpm x2[/*:m:2352q3c5][/list:u:2352q3c5] When I'm on the go, I either use a Macbook Air for quick tasks like browsing and emailing, and when I need to do heavy lifting in 3D programs or games I switch to my Alienware Mx15 laptop. The Alienware is about 3 and a half years old and it's showing its age. Takes a long time to boot, and fidelity on newer games doesn't go above medium or low. Peripheral wise, I've got a Logitech G15 that's almost 8 years old now and still works as good as it did the day I got it and A Steelseries QCK mousepad beneath my Razer Orochi mouse. Picked up a Razer Hydra some time ago. Great if you want good motion controls for your PC games. Very precise detection and comfortable grip. I use it mostly for experimentation and development, but it works great for playing games as well. A lot of games are supported. I can't wait to try it together with the Oculus Rift. My Rift should be sent out soon, so I guess that's an other peripheral to add to the list. :D

I always wondered why it looked like it had been hit with a hammer. "Hmm, I like this design, but do you know what it's missing? Random dents." "Brilliant."

Gilgamesh of Uruk

I just got a new monitor. A near-top-of-the-line Ultrasharp U2713H. A massive resolution (2560x1440), wide color gamut (full AdobeRGB coverage), absolutely flawless (zero dead/stuck pixels, factory-calibrated to within 1% of ideal), and all kinds of other fancy features. It's actually so high-res that you can't use HDMI at full resolution and refresh rate - you need either dual-link DVI or DisplayPort. Found that out when I plugged it into the wrong DVI port and couldn't bring it above 1920x1080. I find it kind of funny how gamers will obsess over video cards and memory to get the best-looking game they can, and then play on a shitty-ass TN panel. Why not invest in a good monitor, which will stay bleeding-edge far longer than a new GPU? Sure, it was expensive, but I'll still be using this thing a decade from now. So far, my 6870 has held up fairly well, on the games I've tried. I haven't dared to try Crysis or Skyrim yet. I know there's no way I'm maxing those out with anything less than a 680. I'm thinking of picking up one of those Asus 144Hz displays to be a third monitor... I have a triple-monitor setup at work, and I've kind of gotten addicted to it. And some games demand high frame rates more than high pixel count (twitch shooters, mainly).

Alright. I got a comment on my silly mouse joke when you should be impressed with this baby I listed http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2012/0 ... gb-review/ Because this is a getting impressed thread is it not^^ Some of my gaming friends was insulted because i bought this card. Reason? I am not really a gamers see. A guy found it infuriating that I could run Crysis 2 on max with 255 frps but refused to play it since I think the game is mostly showing of graphics and no special game play :P

I'm glad to hear someone else's opinion of the Hydra; I was really looking into picking one up, but I'm not sure how many games actually support it. Does it have any sort of software layer that can make the controls usable in any game, or does the game specifically have to be Hydra-enabled?

A lot of games support it and you can use the Sixense MotionCreator to add your own binds. You can even use it as a mouse for your computer, if you want to.

I was talking with one of my friends on Skype and he told me that, for the Starfighter controls in Star Wars Battlefront II, he used a flight stick.

Saved up enough money to buy some new parts for my PC. I'm really happy with the 10GB of extra RAM, as my current setup starts disk swapping the moment I have a big texture file open in Photoshop and a high poly model in 3DS Max at the same time. The new CPU will also speed up build times so I spend less time masturbating while my code is compiling. All in all this will help me be more productive. :fy: [list:1dk7bb3a][*:1dk7bb3a]CPU: AMD FX-8350 Black Edition (8-core, 4GHz)[/*:m:1dk7bb3a] [*:1dk7bb3a]Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990FX/GEN3 R2.0[/*:m:1dk7bb3a] [*:1dk7bb3a]Memory: Kingston HyperX 16GB [/*:m:1dk7bb3a][/list:u:1dk7bb3a] So yeah, that's €500,- out the window. Join me in three months when another €500 is spent on a single new graphics card. (why are those things so fucking expensive :cry: )

An Ape Of God

PC Specs: i7 3770K OCed to 4.5Ghz & Custom Water Cooled Asus P8 Z77 V-LK 16GB GSkil RAM EVGA GTX 670 FTW w/ factory overclock and Arctic Twin Turbo cooler 850W Corsair HX Series PSU 128GB boot SSD (Samsung 830) 1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD Some OEM DVD Drive Thermaltake Level Ten GTS Snow Edition Two 21.5" Monitors (DVI and VGA, because the DVI port causes noise on one monitor) on either side of One 24" Monitor (HDMI) It was my first venture into the realm of building computers, and to a lesser extent, technology. I've learned a lot since then, and regret choosing some components. Peripherals: CM Storm Quickfire TK Cosair M90 Audio Technica ATH M30 I chose my keyboard, because it's fully backlit, and I like using my computer in the night (Even more so, now that school's out. I chose the M90, because of all the macro buttons, and the unique placement of them, and picked the M30s, because my previous headphones broke from constant abuse, and I wanted some higher quality headphones. The M30s almost suffered the same fate of a broken 3.5mm Jack, until I decided to only use them on my PC.
