Greens tend to be much louder than blues simply because you have to press harder to make the switch actuate. I personally use browns because of the middle of the road design where they're good for both typing and gaming. I prefer blues and greens for typing but reds or browns for gaming. So browns were the perfect middle of the road switch for me. I'm using the CM Storm QuickFire TK. Really like the "10 keyless" hybrid design so I have my full number pad with my home and page up and down buttons, while still having a smaller keyboard to lug around to LAN parties and such. I love mechanical keyboards, especially since everyone realizes it's all about preference and there isn't as many flame wars.

So for $500 to $700 you might as well build your own. Buying a pre-built computer just to put a 750ti in it is pointless.

Essentially you spend $1500 or more on your core components and you're "future proofing" your computer. It's a ridiculously stupid term and the guys from Tested really don't know shit about building a computer. Getting a motherboard that supports SLI, a CPU with more than 4 cores, room in your case for HDD expansion, a big enough PSU to support a better CPU or 2 graphics cards later, etc etc. You only need basic PC building knowledge to know how to "future proof" your computer. But listening to these guys isn't a good idea.

Damn, only 8 drives supported in a $100 case? What a shame...

3rd comment, once again from a PC fan. Go ahead and see which one can run Windows and OS X better. Oh, can't even get OS X to run on that PC because of the hardware requirements? Ahh, okay. Comparing a Mac Pro and a $3000 PC is really pointless, as in both OS's are geared towards different users.

Yeah something's up with the boot time. Mine rig with a 8320 and a Hyper X SSD boots in 14 seconds flat.

I feel like dropping MSAA down would give some better performance improvements.

For $70 I think there's a bunch of other cases that are much much better than this one. Just seems too cheap for the price tag.

I for one love the Corsair 200R. There's also the Rosewill Blackhawk. some of Fractals cheaper cases are also fantastic. The HAF 912. To me the glossy finish and the meh build quality doesn't make the S340 worth it. But to each their own.

I really hope that wasn't their final cable management because that's awful.

Choosing a very un-optimized game and trying to run it on a GPU in the MacPro that's geared towards productivity not gaming. I'm a PC fan 100% but this video was pretty pointless.

This is why I just install StartIsBack, disable all the charms and metro shit, and never leave the desktop. Windows 8.1 problems solved. Until the Metro Apps actually become useful, I'll just get rid of it all.
