The electrics in "The back streets of Shizuoka" don't look as professional as I would expect. Guess I have been living in Germany for too long where you simply don't see things like that.

It's earthquake related, nothing is run underground and is left in the air to move about and be flexible in the event of earthquakes - arguably more prone than NZ is.

Sorry to hear that also.

Anyone watch the football :D 7-1 against Brazil.. Was a bit of an unreal game to watch.

My project tonight is to replace the rear disks and pads on my wifes car. Be interested to see how that goes.

Have another project that I might ask for some expert help too.
My son is turning 14 in a few days and wants a computer.. I have decided to build one for him..
Am currently selecting components.
Will probably go for an i5 5560 3.2 procesor with 8GB ram.

Any tips / tricks.

I don't even follow sports but how could one not be interested in the match between Brazil and Germany. That result is a shocker it would be like the all blacks loosing by 50 points.

Oh well

What is he planning on doing with the computer and how much are you willing to spend. I would at also put a SSD in to the machine, minimum of 128gb in size. if he plans on doing any gaming then a good video card would be needed as well.

He has a gopro, so wants to be able to edit videos.
I want to make it relatively powerfull, but keep the cost down a bit.
So I will get a Hybrid 1TB disk to start with. Ok only 8GB SSD.. but better than nothing. It is something that can be easily updated later.

As he doesn't seem very interested in Games, I will start with on board graphics.. again an option to upgrade later

1. CPU Intel Core i5-4460 with cooling Fan
2. Power: Thermaltake Munich 430W (Calculated max power I would need and it came to 303 with extra HDD, Graphics and tv card)
3. Card reader
4. DVD-Burner: Pioneer
5. Main Board: Gigabyte GA-H87-HD3
6. HDD: Seagate ST1000DX001 1 TB 8 GB NAND
7. RAM: G.Skill DIMM 8GB DDR3-1600
8. Wintows 8.1
9. Microsoft keyboard and mouse
10. Mini tower with cooling fan

Total price..€541.14

you could also add something like this as the main OS drive for not much more.

http://www.mindfactory​.de …T120M500SSD1-_844175.html (external link)

then the 1tb drive is going to be the working drive.

Depending on what software he wants to edit the videos with, you may need to add a graphics card.
The GoPro puts out H.264 which is a very processor heavy codec to work with.

Seems "pre-visualisation" bites me again ....... this time in learning how to program

Trouble is I don't want to program anything, I want to be able to read code more specific, open source php frameworks and js code. Then be able to change to suit my needs.
Problem is if I cant follow it don't know what to change to get the result im after.

Schools are problematic, they don't use hours and minutes they use periods.

All this reminds me of algebra at school :(
Mind you finally found out what "i " is never found out what "x" was though in algebra

Mark V all good?

OK, Thanks guys. true.. 55 for a SSD isn't bad. And if I pay 20 less for a non Hybrid hard drive, it is only adding 35 to the PC price.
We'll try it as it is.. and can add more later. The advantage of a PC over a laptop.

yea the problem is that moppie is right, video card would help as most video software will take use of the extra grunt a decent video card would provide.

if you have a budget then I would forgo the SSD and get the video card.

but your right, because it's home built PC you do have options as time moves on

Had a break from learning how to program .... watched
"THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY"

I guess only a photographer knows the real story behind the photo.


akiwi get the SSD first easier to add video card than having to rebuild a system in 6 months
