>>45580940
It's relatively cheap
>>
>>45581038
Nope, average housing prices in Oakland just surpassed San Jose because while San Jose is building as much housing as possible (built 7 apartment buildings in 2013 and more in 2014) Oakland built zero (0).

You can thank the ultra lib anti developer mindset in Oakland.
>>
>>45581062
or they're making it too expensive for poor hipsters
>>
>>45581076
Actually, it's twofold. The hipsters are all leaving SF because no one in their right mind pays 3k for a one bedroom apartment, they all moved to Oakland and rental prices started sky rocketing. But since it's the same idiots who fight to maintain their stupid skyline in San Francisco, the Oakland hipsters don't want new housing built and fight it at every turn.

they've actually started pushing blacks out of Oakland, It's getting whiter and whiter.

What I am saying is that if they just let people build new housing there would be enough for everyone and the cost of housing across the board would be much lower and gentrification wouldn't even be a thing.

Great mouse pad.
>>
>>45581611
Not being sarcastic one bit. I always just assumed libs just didn't know how backwards they were being. Claiming to want one thing but then doing everything they can to make the other happen.

It makes sense, they are scared of blacks and want them away from them. They talk about affordable housing and instead of just letting the market provide the housing they want low income housing on the other side of town away from them.
>>
>>45581634
Nope. I haven't been near their Hillel shit since my first day on campus.

>>45581638
It's cliquey as fuck. They ask where you're from when you meet them, and if you aren't from New York or New Jersey they don't bother. If you are they'll see "if you know this guy" or what synagogue or whatever.

The vibe I get is that since they grew up around so many Jews, they were able to break off into little factions. Where I'm from just being Jewish is enough to form that sense of camaraderie.

>>45581664
Cognitive dissonance. They try to justify their hypocrisies through backwards logic and projecting their personal guilt on other whites.

"White privilege" is literally just today's politically correct way of saying "White Man's Burden." They are conceptually the same, and if I had to find a difference it's that the burden emphasized the uplifting of blacks up to white standards and privilege is all about depowering whites to the level of minorities.

Hello, everyone hope you are having an excellent night.
I have a question for those interested in responding. I am looking to tried in my ageing 108op monitors for a single a good 1440p monitor. I'm pretty sure I want either a BenQ BL2710PT or a Yamakasi Catleap Q270. the cats=leap is about 150 cheaper.

>>
>>45583958
if this is just for gaming then switch cpu to an i5. You'll save a shit-ton of money and there is literally no reason for a i7 just for gaming.
Also for an HDD I'd suggest getting WD Blue. Not Seagate.
SSD would be better off as a Samsung 840 Pro.
>>
>>45583988
Why that one? Over the mugen?

>>45584014
I elected to get the I7 because I pay my way through college by mixing and mastering monter cat tracks. So the extra power would help out. I'll look into the HDD and SSD.
>>
>>45583386
dropped outta class, started makin classics
>>
>>45584031
Gotcha, the i7 will probably be a better choice for you then.
Hard-drives will be a little bit more but you're paying for stability.
Barracuda might actually be good but /g/ hivemind doesn't like seagate. I'd suggest doing some digging on your own though and deciding for yourself.
SSD on the other hand you want to get Samsung Pro or, if you need to save money (being in college), this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820239045&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

>>
>>45584073
Cool, I'll look into the samsung. What's the difference between 5400 rpm and 7200 rpm? The WD is a little bit more expensive, but if it's the better HDD I wouldn't mind dropping a little more dosh on it.

watch out for cnet though; some of the shittiest audio experts i've ever seen there.

more reliable and the disk speed just means that it preforms better.
Mainly you're paying for a lower failure rate.

I'm looking to invest in a great setup, including speakers, amp, headphones, monitors (3), keyboard, mouse, and a decent rig even though I don't game (occasionally a strategy game), I only program and fuck around with computers (in fact, I could just upgrade the box i have now).

dt7100? Do you mean the D7100? Well, I guess with a mirrorless camera you will always be somewhat limited in your choice of lenses. Adapters often mean that features like auto-focus don't work and overall it's probably not worth it (large lenses also destroy the smaller form factor of micro 4/3 cameras).
>>
>>45584520
What model is that Sony monitor? It looks like a very large, high end pre-FD model, but not a W900 (unless it just looks 4:3 due to the angle).

Yea, I bought the camera because it was small, but found out I didn't really care about the size later.

Also the adapter for the sony lenses still allow the auto-focus to work which is nice. But I rarely every use the feature anymore.

They are rich gamerfags who just throw cash at their screens hoping they can have one.
They cannot repair them.
They cannot adjust the colour.
They know nothing about CRT care.
They burn them in in days.

Ive never seen a broken Fw900 sell for more than a tenner.

I can't do eBay for a CRT monitor. It's a huge gamble (dozens of problems they can have) and I can't afford to lose the high shipping costs. Locally, I started looking a couple years too late to have a chance at finding anything local. I passed up some 17" Trinitrons hoping for something larger and then even those disappeared years ago.

Is this actually seriously possible? That's like a 220 KHz horizontal scan rate on a monitor specced for 140 KHz maximum. I thought all modern CRT monitors would just give you an "out of range" message when exceeding the maximum scan rate.

Are you sure your graphics driver isn't just lying and the monitor isn't just running at a lower refresh rate?
>>
>>45585259
I tried maxing out my monitor just to see what it could do, I was expecting maybe 2560x1920 @ ~75hz, but I was surprisingly able to bring it up to the 113 mark. I was skeptical at first so I used testufo and a couple fps tests and it sure looks and feels like 113hz.

In order for your monitor too be running at such a speed your RAMDC must be running @ 830.25 MHz

HOW THE FUCK DID YOU MANAGE THAT!?
>>
>>45585308
This truly baffles me. It's just incredible.

Can you also push extremely high refresh rates at lower resolutions? Even 140 Khz allows for pretty high refresh rates at low resolutions, but I think most monitors were officially "capped" at 160Hz or so regardless of the horizontal scan rate.

>>
>>45585477
Strange. If anything, I would expect you to be able to push >160Hz refresh rates at low resolutions before being able to push [email protected] Technically, the monitor and GPU should be able to handle nearly 300Hz at 640x480, but like I said before they have that cap at 160. It's just weird that you don't hit a cap on the horizontal scan rate, or the GPU.
