i swear to god you act so fricking ignorant in master race threads


It is a legit question. ALLLL the pc's I currently own have one video card. So it's puzzling to me to see a build with 4. I have no idea why. I kinda still don't have any idea why.

because 4 of something running at the same time is better than 1 of the same thing?

do you understand why servers can have more than on processor?

do you understand why processors have more than one logical core?

Right. But on my computer I have one slot that I plug the monitor in. If I have 4 video cards, where does the monitor plug in?

re: Gaming Computer
If we learn anything here today, it's that I have no business ever building my own computer.

re: Gaming Computer
they have an internal bridge so they work together. you would still plug the monitor into the first card.

re: Gaming Computer
Also I assure you this was no troll attempt, or any invasion of your master race thread. I read these all the time and the technicalities fascinate me. I just don't know enough about them. I buy box.

I got you back broke. All I did on deployment was read the master race threads and learn myself up.

PC shite is crazy these days.

re: Gaming Computer
Listen i personally don;t care what you think I should have bought or think I spent to much money. Just cause you would build a computer one way or another makes no difference to me! The original thread was asking about trying to sell it not about your opinion. Plus that build is horrible...who are you joking with that. Just cause you a cheap b#@ch doesnt mean I can't spend 1000 dollars on a video card. I have two other computers that I will put up against yours any day...

Titan
Vertex3 240g RAID
i7-3970X 3.50
Rampage IV

Pulled 8 with this in feb benchmarking...prob won't see you in the top 100

re: Gaming Computer
And thus the reason I am selling the one I am because it's not something I want!!!!


SO back to the original topic...I've already sold 50% of the parts memory and titan sold in an hour. samsung 840 in about 3 hours and so on...

i assumed he new something and was just acting as console peasants often do. i mean he did start a thread trying to quantify the value of a gaming pc vs console didnt he? is it too much to expect that person to know something about the subject matter?


This simply means that it's very difficult to tell the difference between the words of a truly ignorant person and a pc thread troll.

Told you. Nobody around here ever listens to me, and I am always right. So thanks for the validation.

Yeah I don't see what the big deal is. Everybody jumped on the OP because of his components, only a few people actually helped

re: Gaming Computer
Lol, we're just mad because most of us would love to have $3500k to drop on a complete new build right this minute, and the build could've been so much better had we been consulted properly.

Although, I don't think people ever listen to the good advice in build threads anyway.

re: Gaming Computer
I have 7 computers All different builds from AMD to dual Xeon's I didn't even know there was a gaming board on here until someone from the OT suggested it.

Building a computer is like modding a car or building a A/V system everyone has their pref. If 3500$ on a computer makes you mad...you'd be happy to know I just dropped $18,000 on a motor.

Can't take it with ya. single, rich, no children.

I thought the amount of people flexing their so called expertise and know it all unsolicited was pretty fricking lame and is a huge reasons others on this board are growing to hate PC guys.

If you were rich you wouldn't be parting out a $3500 PC to pay some medical bills for your mother.

I agree, a lot of unnecessary criticism in here.
