Thermaltake Chaser A31 "Thunder" - Page 3

Great job. Your rig is looking very nice.

I bought Start8 from stardock.com. apart from putting start menu back it has lots of good tweaks to make win 8 a bit easier. Best $4 investment I ever made.

Also stardocks modernmix allows you to run modern ui apps in windowed mode from desktop.

Between them they make win 8 more useable. I'm also getting a t650 touchpad later today. Think that may also make it a little easier to navigate win 8 as well.

All in all win 8 is a good is. Its fast, very stable and has excellent volume management of your disks.

8.1 comes out on the 17th or 18th of this month so I'll wait for that instead of getting start8. im hoping that it also fixes some of the random crashes that 8 has been giving me.

Win 8.1 has fixed a few things up but I still wouldn't be without Start8. Hopefully it sorted those random crashes for you though. Quite a few of those win 8 UI apps have been improved as well.

I got the t850 touchpad. Except for gaming I now use that as my mouse. Supports the gestures that you cant do on a mouse and does a nice job of that. There's a few keyboards coming out now that have a touchpad built in.

I had considered getting a touch screen but I decided not to as I didn't like idea of having to reach out and touching my monitor all the time.
