Wow good argument. A corporate consumer support center does not have qualified techs on tier 1. I am talking abot bih places like Dell MS And so on, there might be one that employs 500 qualified techs for their tier 1 but its definitely an exception and not the rule.
There is no rule. You're argument holds as much weight as saying people who work in a factory are unionized homeless people.
[QUOTE=MaxOfS2D;37457091]I'd like to upgrade from a sapphire GTX 550 Ti. I'm guessing a GTX 670 would be the best choice for me? That said, I don't know if the PSU could support it without being changed; it's a pre-built, the sticker on it says 500W (a bit hard to make out) [img]http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/orig/8/24105023511-orig.png[/img][/QUOTE] If you go for just one 670 it should suffice.

If the first receiver is a nice, friendly person who quickly and efficiently transfers you to the section you need, then what's the problem? I prefer that to those stupid "Press 3 for Technical Support.." (looking at YOU, Apple)

I could call and have my issues fixed in 5 minutes at the most, now it's just slow and they end up sending you to your closest Apple store... Also, TONS of companies use that style of phone service now. It's not just Apple.
Especially on them not being qualified
Asus tech support is hit and miss. Once my motherboard wasn't posting and the guy heard the beeps and immediately knew what was wrong. Another time I was hung up on when trying to RMA the same motherboard (a third time mind you.) apple always points me to the stores, but geniuses are helpful and knowledgeable.
[QUOTE=esalaka;37457194]Citation needed[/QUOTE] My calls. I always reach some friendly cc person that either reads a script or redirects me. Most recent were MSI, DELL, ACER and ASUS. Now stop taking this as if I said every last person that uses a telephone doesnt know anything about tech, but the majority of hotlines I have called with big corporations have not so tech literate people on tier 1 and thats ok.

I called asking about adding RAM to my laptop. First guy had no clue and had to redirect me. Second guy knew when the second empty ram slot was but had to transfer me since he was support for the desktops and not laptops. Finally the third guy knew everything and emailed me a break down on how to take apart the laptop and find the very well hidden ram slot.
Jumping from "support reps don't fix shiz" to "just some of them don't fix shiz". Getting ready to hide your posts.
I need to ask a favor, can someone just make an empty "bin" directory on their webserver? I need it to fix my server.
No I am not jumping from anyhting to anything, I am simply explaining that I wasn't saying *every last* support rep, but that I actually meant your average corporate call center, which at least from my experience is like this. And I am certainly not going to hide my post, you didn't win soem mighty argument here and got me backpedaling, you simply screamed "HEY THIS GUY SAID ALL TECH REPS WITH PHONES DONT FIX SHIT LETS BASH!!!" instead of actually spending a second to think and maybe take it as what it is.

Hah, so I am not the only one who was thinking of exploits. I mean it's silly, it's just a foldername, but it still falls into the uncanny valley.

Also, TONS of companies use that style of phone service now. It's not just Apple.[/QUOTE] One thing I used to do (not now I have a decent job) is exploit replacement systems from some companies. Lots of companies (Apple among them) offer this option called "Advance Replacement" (mentioned earlier with Kindles) where you give them CC details as collateral while they send you a replacement. You can buy (Usually for around $5) "virtual" credit cards with only $1 on them, that literally means you can't be charged if you don't return the item. Obviously, this was rather easy to abuse.
4 gb is looking old, and 8 gb still massive to most consumers. 6 is a happy median.
[QUOTE=alien_guy;37457885]Why 6GB of ram[/QUOTE] You can always upgrade it. 6GB of ram should be more than fine for a laptop
[QUOTE=MrWhite;37458041]4 gb is looking old, and 8 gb still massive to most consumers. 6 is a happy median.[/QUOTE] But when RAM is so cheap, why not? I got 8Gb for £38. [t]http://puu.sh/102Zl[/t] Its nice to have it just incase.
Yeah but its dual channel, 4GB + 2GB isnt a nice combination.
