All of us forum users who know CallsignVega's builds and usage can understand why his post has zero sanity value (even considering the resolution he plays at alone), and therefore joke about it. It's not happening here, in this thread, exclusively (read: behind his back).
*gallantry

sorry couldn't resist

I read the thread you're talking about and it's pretty obvious that he was talking about the objective highest performing potential CPU for modern games at the moment. Regardless of whether it was 10, 5 or even 1% faster across the board. It was faster. And most people didn't seem to understand that and tried to bring in other variables or factors into the equation when they were purposefully stated as being excluded for reasons of isolating pure peak performance in gaming only. It then devolved into either side trying to get one another to understand their argument/reasoning.

CRT's did have some advantages. 0 ms response times, no "Glow" or "backlight bleading" and better viewing angles.

And this never happened on a CRT.

Cool I guess, but CRTs used VGA and maybe DVI-A, and not DL-DVI-D, so I'm not certain on the point you are trying to make. Digital signal would be an issue for a monitor with no controller card to interpret the packets, yea?

Bad video compression didn't happen on CRTs?

magnek If you've read that thread, you'll see that not a single person has said anything about his financial decisions. All criticisms were directed squarely at the hyperbolic and troll-ish initial comment.

Is that who they're ragging on? Financial, his decisions are beyond insane. Unless you have heaps of money and are after the best possible performance. Which appears to be the case with him. With that in mind, why make fun of him. Isn't the motto of this site: the pursuit of performance? It's not your money, let him spend it.

magnek Oh please. The exact post that started it all was:

If you want to start an actual discourse, then don't use intentionally inflammatory language and others will respond in kind. If you're just looking to troll, then don't be surprised if you receive nothing but snark in return.

It's a dig at someone I won't name.

P.S. I won't name him either because this thread will quickly become a slaughter.

Apologies, he meant to say he is a [email protected] gamer.

What games, of course, are unspecified, so they may be brought up only after research into what is the hardest leaning to the blue side.
