Quote from dadge :
using my method that 700watts (@ 80% efficiency ) psu would only give me 560watts at peak.

Quote from dadge :i know that 700w is the output lol.

It will give you 700+W at peak. The reason it died wasn't because it wasn't efficient enough. Efficiency is just what determines how much money and energy is wasted through heat.

Yeah the 80% efficiency is from pulling from the wall to the components, the 20%+ is lost to mostly heat.

Some PSU manufacturers rate their PSU based on peak output, but some also put it as the lowest constant they can output. Most seasonics and corsairs can put out a lot more than their label for short periods of time.

Quote from shiny_red_cobra :lol you don't need a 650W power supply for that system, 400W is more than enough. Also 18.5" monitor? I didn't know they still made them that small....

A 650w would be more efficient at about 50% load than a 400w would be at 80% load, and let you upgrade to a more powerful GPU at a later date without upgrading the PSU as well.

(at least as FAH'er. I know most people will be idling 95% of the time though, but hopefully people set their power settings correctly and put it in standby!)

Quote from Rikje :New patch messed up my PS3 apparently. Whenever I press the X button to accept something i have to press the PS button before it actually does something. Great!

If you leave your foot on the gas in the menus this happens.

Quote from dawesdust_12 :I browse forums a lot while waiting for races in GT. Not much waiting anymore since I installed it last night. I did have a shittonne of credits.. I've spent probably 1,500,000 so far in about 12 hours of play.

I installed it as well, but just the animations and loading inbetween races and series is just annoying. Even if I had a laptop on the couch sitting next to me, I would have to concentrate to keep hitting buttons to navigate the menus and all that. I enjoyed the experience, but I think it'd wear off pretty soon anyway.

Played it for one day. Now for sale.

GT5 was good, but I spent about 90% of the time in the menus rather than racing. My time is better spent on iRacing on the PC where I can browse forums and multitask while waiting for a race to start, rather than sitting there bashing my face in during loading screens and backing out and having to search for a car that fits the criteria after I realize I don't own the right car for the event I want to participate in. Or somehow getting 800,000 credits after 40 minutes of actual racing.

The A.I. Oh gawd the A.I.

It's got some major flaws.

Quote from SAxor :I'm not really bothered with the low detail standards tbo, what worries me more is the lack of pace the AI has been showing in all these vids.

All of the more recent videos show very competitive AI, so

Quote from JJ72 :I know economy in Argentina isn't the greatest, but saving up $300 USD in a year for a second hand PS3 + wheel shouldn't be impossible?

$300 + $250 + $60 + currency conversion can be a lot more. 1/4 of the earth's population lives on less than $200 USD a year so ...

Quote from CoolColJ :I actually like the Lounge music in GT5

Kaz says there is plenty of Lounge - Drum and Bass in GT5, as far as the menu music goes. Even in GT5 Prologue, there was enough music that it never felt stale.

You can use your own music in any case

The PS Eye head tracking will free up 2 buttons for look left/right, so that helps

I meant the My Chemical Romance crap.
