post #7391 of 52874
dteg, the point I'm trying to make is according to that article, they will be snooping into areas that have nothing to do with game development. Sure some of the info they gain will be used for developing games, but a lot of it will not. They will be sending gathered information to undisclosed third parties, that is what doesn't sit well with me. If it all stayed within EA I might not like it, but I would deal, and probably wouldn't be making a stick about it. Yea our privacy and freedom(in the U.S. at least) is quickly fading that's true. Doesn't mean we should all roll over and give in.

Why would you make something like that up? The information shared isn't identifiable.

I never said they were giving out names, they are giving out ur isp though, which is pretty close. Did you read the article, I haven't overstated anything in any of my posts. Just because they aren't telling people your name doesn't mean it's not a breach of privacy. Having your computer probed for information that has nothing to do with origin's game interest or in fact the game you installed through them is shady. Not sure what so hard to understand about this concept. You can like it or not, or maybe not care about it fine, that's cool. But they are snooping in places they really shouldn't be and that's wrong no matter how you slice it.

whether or not they are selling your information or your soul, this is soooo far off topic from BF3 it doesn't even matter.

I just read an article man, no need to kill the messenger. I think Tom's hardware is a pretty reputable website, so I'm not sure what you mean. I'm not in business of gossip I just wanted to convey to you all what I read. I seems your quick to dismiss any wrong doing without proof of the contrary, at least Tom's did some reporting, where's your proof that they are wrong?

Well it is about BF3 stuff but I am sick of talking about already. Was just trying to raise awareness, didn't mean to get into multiple arguments about it, LOL

so need some advice on the new computer im building, it is mainly in response to two games. bf3 and later skyrim.

I will be starting over from scratch, my current computer... 939 mobo single core processor, and 2gigs of ram will be scavenged and i will reuse the disk drive, and the 500gig harddrive.

Onto the new build, ive done some research and have a rough setup in my mind

i5 2500k
64gig ssd
z68 mobo
nvidia 580
8 gigs ram minimum, prefer 12 gigs
(re using dvdrw drive)
(reusing 500gig hd -basic storage-)

now my questions.
-would the stock heatsink be good enough to game with? I wont be overclocking yet, it will stay at stock speeds for a few months.

-video card selections, I will only be running one monitor while gaming. I was told the 3 gig 580 would be overkill, would i be stupid to not get the 3 gig and just go with the 1.5?(also, what brand/specific model 580s do yall reccomend? ie: different brand 580 with a better cooler etc)

-case selection, knowing the 580 is a big card what case would you all reccomend with good airflow and expandibilty ? i dont need anything fancy with leds and whatnot.

- and lastly power supply, the last build i did the parts were power hungry. So im not super up to date on what modern parts draw when operating. I will eventually go with a second 580 and add some better cooling devices and most likely another hard drive etc Whats a reliable psu that can handle a sli machine in the future and take care of the build at the current time.

i'd say keep the 3gb 580 just for future proofing, get at least a 750 PSU preferably higher if later on in the future you plan to SLI and 12gb ram is definitely overkill.. if you want an aftermarket cooler for the CPU just buy a hyper 212 or a Corsair water cooler (h50-h100 if you want) and call that a day..

I would wait till the AMD Southern Island GPUs are out. Price drops on current GPUs/Next gen GPU options.
