I used to be all AMD, mainly due to price, for many many years. This last build, I dabbled back into Intel (i7/Sandy Bridge) for my rig and AMD (AM2+ Phenom something if memory serves) for my wife’s rig, and so far I’ve had more stability issues with the AMD rig than my Intel rig.

Although my suspicions are more directed at the motherboard.

If I recall correctly, Chrome runs its own suite of integrated plugins; Flash being one of them, so unless Chrome updated itself, I’m pretty sure the normal Flash updating process has no impact on Chrome.

You’re better off installing them than not installing them. Updates are annoying, but leaving your system potentially exploitable is far more detrimental.

The hardware side gets easier, but the software side gets increasingly more frustrating, I find. I guess at least we don’t have to position a boatload of jumpers anymore.

I’ve never had any issues with which physical SATA interface I plug my drives into, but I haven’t dabbled with SSDs on a personal desktop level yet.

It’s odd you’re having issues with Chrome on an AMD build as well. My wife’s AMD-based system will just randomly lock up while web browsing on Chrome, but never has any issues running games, etc. I’ve even run stress tests on the system (Prime95, OCCT, etc.) and could not replicate what happens with Chrome. Nor does anything seem out of place in terms of BIOS settings, etc. (thought it might be voltage or timing issues).

I could have sworn either 3D Studio had a Poser plugin or you could export to 3D Studio back in the early 2000s. I can’t remember, though, so I might be wrong.

I used to use Poser a lot back before joining the military (3D rendering\art was very interesting hobby to me back then), but apparently have lost all of my stuff over the years.

They’re like the AAA of movies.

I’m not being serious. They’re weird at best.

I had a few people telling me to get an SSD for my games drive and it really wouldn’t resolve my issues easily or cost effectively. I was running out of space on a 500GB partition, so switching to SSDs was going to be quite expensive just to reach\exceed the size of my current partition.

SSHD seems like a nice middle ground, especially when I switch it over to a RAID configuration. It won’t be as fast as an SSD, unless I add disks to the RAID 0 array to bring throughput up to the typical speed of an SSD, but I’ll have significantly more space for less cost. I can get at least two of these 2TB SSHDs for the price of a single 500GB SSD here, so… Yeah. :p

I’m the same way. I tend to keep my OSes on their own drive so if that drive fails, it doesn’t take everything with it. I’ve just been waiting (admittedly many years at this point) for SSDs to mature more before diving in.

These features sound exactly how hybrid drives work, except it looks like you can set aside a significantly larger amount of SSD space. I haven’t dug into Intel’s RST stuff too much, but I’m wondering if it’s more hardware or software based in making these decisions.

When I do a full rebuild (when 8 series GeForce cards come out most likely), I’ll be picking up a SSD for the OS\Common Apps. I’ll still have another HDD kicking in there for storage (music, etc.).

Currently, it’s just a partition on a HDD. I actually have two games partitions right now, as I was running out of space on my games drive. This move is going to allow me to consolidate and free up space so I can stick Linux back on this box.

I picked up 2 2TB SSHDs. One for me, which will become my ‘Gaems’ drive (download all the Steam library!), as 500GB wasn’t cutting it anymore and one for my wife. Entertaining the idea of picking up another 2 down the line and set it up as RAID 0.

I also forgot how long a full format takes.

I used to do this when I was bored, but I just don’t have as much time as I used to.

I was never big on the dancing games, to be honest. I have no rhythm. I liked GuitarFreaks, etc. though.

Will still give it a go! I mainly watch Game Grumps, CGR, Continue?, and Game Theory.

I can’t really watch it from work with sound, so might have to sub and mix it into my weekly Game Grumps catch up sessions on the weekends. :p
