Damn that's a nice desk...

This is mine right now, you can't see but I also have my Raspbery Pi hooked up as an auto Dropbox uploader that uploads files off my Desktop to Dropbox every night, pretty handy!

My setup:
FX - 6300
8GB DDR3 RAM
Radeon 7850
1 TB HDD

Microsoft Arc mouse (I love it!)
Some type of small brand keyboard, but it's back-lit so it's good enough for me Wink

Running a Asus laptop atm.

I7 Haswell (forget chip)
8Gb DDR3 1833mhz
nVidia GT780M
1Tb HDD
64Gb SSD

Think that is right, it was a toss between this or an i5 Toshiba rig with 16gb of ram, 2tb HDD and 256 ssd, only had a GT745 though.

Razer blackwidow tournament edition, meaning no numpad, no back lighting, no usb ports no nothing. Basically an empty basic keyboard. It doesn't have numpad since its tournament edition, so it is easier to move it around (fits into backpack easily)

I bought it, because i don't need the fancy stuff anywayz and I don't use numpad.

If you want to show off your keyboard, at least get something stronger than Razer. Seriously. It's not that hard to do.There are brands such as Ducky, Filco, IBM, Unicomp, WASDKeyboards, Das Keyboard, Cooler Master, and Matias. All of which make better mechanical keyboards than Razer.

With that aside...
I, for one, type like a man:

Yeah games shouldn't run at 60fps on cheap and basic computers. You don't even need to make sure that they work on cheap and basic computers. The target market all have $5000 super duper awesome computers with built in nuclear reactors.

You are aware we could just go around in circles here, right? We test it on what we have, it would be impossible to test for every hardware configuration.

However your statement was just stupid and asking to me smacked imo.

If you're testing a game on a good computer then there's a chance that you're assuming that it'll run fine on a cheap computer, possibly meaning that you'll lose a good chunk of your target market.

@Jev

What difference is there to which keyboard I bought? I mean, they all use the same switches, layout is almost the same. You're right, I wanted to buy das keyboard, and they don't seem expensive if you want to buy one in the US. Its like 100$ or something. But I live in Lithuania, and you cannot get one from any store around, neither can you get one from das keyboard site. I could only get one from retailer sites like amazon and some others, but it costs almost twice as much + shipping, and I didn't even bother to check if they actually shit to my country.

I just went to electronics store and bought this one for like 120$ and no shipping required.. I mean, I would have really loved to have das keyboard without key printing.. That one looked really awesome.

PS

I didn't buy it for gaming.. I really like the feel of mechanical keyboard when typing, and since coding = typing, so..

What.

Same goes the other way around, ever play Planetside 2 when it came out? It was so badly optimized that it ran on average systems and high end systems struggled to run it past 25fps.

It is impossible to test for every hardware configuration, you test it on what you have got.

Your statement was stupid because you deliberately worded it in a way that leaked sarcasm and even a hint of jealousy at other peoples systems, if you can't afford a $1000+ computer then who cares, I gamed on sub $600 computers for years before actually getting stable work.

@trollwarrior1

It's simply the build quality of Razer keyboards. I also wouldn't recommend getting one from Das either. Both Razer and Das keyboards are manufactured in China nowadays, IIRC.

It would make more sense to order something from Cooler Master or Filco as of right now.

Though I understand why you would've bought it. That's the main reason why a lot of people buy Razer products, it's because they aren't that hard to find in local electronics stores.

Razer is good at marketing, horrible at designing products IMO.

- Jev

P.S: This is coming from somebody who has owned (and sold) two Razer keyboards.

EDIT: If you wanted to get the blank keycaps, there's a company called WASDKeyboards that sells custom keycap designs. You can check out their site here: http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/

If you want to know anything about beast keyboards, Jev is the man, trust me I know Pointing

Troubleshoots, if you don't care for these threads then why do you bother posting in them? You aren't the internet police, let people post about what they like. I personally like hearing about other builds and seeing where people spend their time developing their games. I enjoy it, so I post in these threads. You don't enjoy it, so stop posting in these threads. Your useless criticisms do nothing but make you look ignorant.

If I recall correctly, most Razer keyboards have a glossy finish, and it's not very difficult for them to become messy over time. Not 100% sure if the tournament edition is glossy or not. The layout changes on some of their keyboards have been known to mess with people, and the keycaps aren't usually prefered by most users. There's also the lack of dipswitches, which allow you to swap different keys on the keyboard while not having to use something like AutoHotkey.

Usually, most Filco keyboards don't have a glossy finish. From my experience with them, they're usually built like tanks and have no flex to them. The font on the keycaps that come with Filco Keyboards is a lot better than what comes with the BlackWidow's, but in terms of quality they are about equal. Depending on where you buy the Filco from, you may be able to get blank keycaps with the board itself.

There's no backlighting or macro keys on the Filco keyboards, but that's why I heavily enjoy them. Filco creates no-B.S. keyboards that can last for years. You can get them in most switches and layouts, and that's another reason why a lot of keyboard enthusiasts (like myself) enjoy them. I don't mean to bag on Razer, but there are a lot of flaws on their keyboards. The driver software drives me insane (no pun intended), the lack of support for other operating systems is annoying, the backlighting is completely pointless, and the switches that come with them aren't considered good for gaming at all.

It seems like a one-sided argument, I know, but I've used a lot of keyboards in my time. Filco is a lot better than Razer, but that's only coming out of my experience.

If you're looking to buy another keyboard, I would go look at http://www.reddit.com/r/mechanicalkeyboards, http://www.deskthority.net/, and http://www.geekhack.org/.

Hopefully this helps? I apologize if this sounds very rant-like, but all of this is coming from my experiences with Filco and Razer keyboards. Smiley

- Jev

P.S: Here is a photo of the 'Otaku' styled Filcos (You can get them in black/black as well):


Another thing I should note is that there are no LEDs on the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock keys. Those are placed to the top-right of the board. I prefer this so light doesn't glow through the keycaps.

It doesn't sound rant to me.. Its just I didn't see an argument why my blackwidow is worse than filco..
Glossy finish or not, my keyboard has only basic features.. I mean, was your argument that filco keyboards are better to type on than razer keyboards, or that filco is better keyboard company than razer overall?

I mean, if the typing experience is the same, I wouldn't consider razer worse.. I mean, keyboard is a keyboard..

Why are you guys all fighting over people wanting to gloat about their rigs? Who cares? These posts are just for fun. It's not like we're actually wanting to showoff who has the biggest genitals. Shocked

I'm detecting some major passive-aggressive jealously here. There's no need for that, no one cares (or will make fun of you) for having a "crappy computer". Sometimes it's just fun to show off your geek toys. Cheesy

I do agree on the technical standpoint though; it's handy having various levels of machines to test your programs on. I'm lucky in the fact I happen to have a really crappy old laptop (well, not really old, but it was a $600 budget laptop 3 years ago.. so it's not exactly a powerhouse.), a mid-range UltraBook (High end CPU, SSD, basically no GPU) and then my main PC I listed in the pic.

PS: I also use a Razer Deathstalker, and I love it. But I do agree it's overpriced marketing mostly. There's many better keyboards for lower pricepoints out there. But like one of you said and what I did, I picked it up at the retailer to have it same-day.
