Instead of asking internet forums for advice, be a man, take the girl by the hair and drag her back to your cave. Women like confidence, that's why they're with assholes.

lol. I always just go out with the girls that ask about me. I've dated a few girls that I thought I was interested in before but they always get skittish and run away after a few days. Relationships work when both people want them to work and while it may seem emasculate to do things my way the relationships that have come from these have always been really fruitful. I've been dating my current girlfriend for almost two years now and I'm working really hard to keep her in my life after college. I used this tactic on my previous two girlfriends and those relationships also lasted around two years.

If no one's asking about you then get out more and be either a likable guy or a complete doushbag. Just don't be neutral or they won't know what to think about you.

Not really trouble so much as a stand still because of finals/me not making moves aggressively. I took her to see the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and out to sushi and a movie, and we haven't gotten anywhere physically. Not even like hand holding or arm over shoulder in the movie type things.

Next date we have I am totally gonna make a move though. Straight up gonna kiss her.

Its my birthday this saturday and kissing her would be the ultimate present.

Building computers/Computers and building them

So I havent upgraded my audio PC for about 6 years. Looking at building a modest beast for the studio. Originally I was just going to use my machine as a sequencer interfaced to my midi gear, but I'm over that stupid idea now, and would prefer to do everything ITB.

So yeah, currency running an AMD 4800+ with 2gb of ram. Looking into putting together an i5 @ 3.3ghz, with 16gb of ram, and an SSD or 10,000 RPM main drive, with a 3TB redundant RAID array for storage. I don't know shit all about what motherboard to buy, as I don't know what's best for audio. I've heard good things about the ASUS x58 or whatever it is. Recommendations?

Was thinking of going i7, but there doesn't seem to be much point. Anyone care to sway me?

An extra $100 for hyperthreading and an extra 2mb of cache doesn't really seem worth it, but I guess I'll see what my pay looks like next week and adjust my decision accordingly ;D

16GB is excessive. The most you will ever need is 6, 8 tops. Unless you're doing something like rendering movie effects or such, I don't see a need for such a massive amount of RAM.

Yeah in my experience having multi-core processing doesn't per se help single application processes. The i5 has faster processing for each core, so even if its only two that might be better.

Then again I don't much of anything that technical with this stuff. Wheres Chris-v2 when you need him!?

I've never had relationship problems, though I hardly ever get into a relationship that is a "relationship."

It's usually just the mutual exchange of alcohol and sexual favors, but I've been in a great real relationship with my current gf for about 8 months and don't plan on it ever ending.

Thought I'd share:s

Yeah, Logical, Envy and SBB pretty much hit the nail on the head as far as I'm concerned.

4 physical cores is fine for me, 8 virtual cores seems kinda useless, especially as FLstudio doesn't really seem to handle multiple cores in a very sophisticated fashion (I could be wrong on this one, anyone?).

RAM to me is much more important. 16GB will mean that I can eliminate swapping, which I assume can only mean good things for my system drive (of which I want to buy a fairly nice one). Still haven't decided between SSD or 10,000 RPM platter, but in either case, keeping the read/write cycles to a minimum will keep it healthy and reliable.

Plus I want to start working with samples and live audio manipulation (as well as film editing, image manipulation, and possibly even 3D rendering if it ever takes my fancy), and it just seems to me that there's no such thing as too much ram. RAM is fast, cheap, and available in quantities that far exceed the total capacity of the hard drive that I had in my computer back in 2002.

I guess the point is that I'd rather cough up $70 and double my RAM, rather than spend $100+ and trick my computer into thinking it had 8 cores.

NEW COMPUTERS

Get a sandy-bridge i7. The 2600k is the best bang for the buck. I would even go to 24gigs of ram, if your motherboard ends up being triple-channel. As far as future proofing, that's decent for a setup that lasts you 4-7 years. As far as FL not supporting multi-core, I'm sure about that, but it's safe to assume that since every other major DAW is shifting to multi-core support, it's safe to assume that FL will introduce such support in the near future as part of it's next upgrade.

Can you explain to me how the i7 2600k will benefit me enough over the i5 2500k to justify spending the extra $100?

I think I'll be safe with 16GB for now, but RAM is getting so cheap that if I really want to beef it up to 24GB, I can pretty easily.

Hmm I guess it won't since you're going to be using FL studio as your main DAW, and FL doesn't support hyper threading. I had to look up whether FL supported HT. I thought it did, but I guess not :( Oopsie on my part for that then...

I think I'll be safe with 16GB for now, but RAM is getting so cheap that if I really want to beef it up to 24GB, I can pretty easily.

Not really. You have to decide beforehand whether to go with a dual-channel motherboard or a triple channel motherboard. A dual channel motherboard has enough slots for 4 DIMMs. 4x4GB = 16gb right. Only a triple channel motherboard can go up to 24 GB. Since there are no 8GB DIMMs, you're stuck with 4GB per DIMM. So if you want the future possibility of going to 24GB form a lower amount of Ram, you'll probably be better off getting 12GB of ram from a triple channel motherboard first. Then adding an additional 12GB at a later date to get 24. Keep in mind also, that each type of DIMM has a limited shelf-time. Just because a particular DIMM may be available upon your purchase date, doesn't mean that it will be available at a later date. You might have to get 12 GB of a different model or make, and that isn't a good thing to mix DIMMs in a motherboard. A rule of thumb is to have all your memory the exact same brand and model, and that's not always possible when implementing DIMMS of different purchase periods.

(sorry for the wall-o-text, but I'm bored and I got nothing better to do in HK lol)

It totally does have hyper threading support, but it runs into problems with plugins like East Wests Play. Its not fully integrated with everything yet, just like their 64bit plugin support. (which also doesnt work with Play godamnit)
