You won't regret it.

I'm still in the process of deciding if I should save up for the big boy, Asus Swift, or just wing it and go a 1080p panel

its so hard to find someone who doesn't recommend the swift
User avatar #77 - HonkIfIDriveWell (11/25/2014) [-]
You'd need a extremely powerful rig to reach 120+ frames in the most demanding games with the Swift, so I'd recommend the 1080p if you want to make the most out of 144hz, unless you have an absolute beast PC.
User avatar #78 - cocopopsonfire (11/25/2014) [-]
yeahh that's what I was thinking, I'm upgrading from a gtx570 to a 970 anyway, but I'm guessing I'd probably need another one for the swift
User avatar #79 - HonkIfIDriveWell (11/25/2014) [-]
That's a huge upgrade. That 970 is going to blow your mind. But yeah, I don't think it'll be enough for 1440p/144fps on ultra in the most intensive games. Not even sure the 980 will do that, but I could be wrong.
User avatar #80 - cocopopsonfire (11/25/2014) [-]
yeahh you're probably right, shame there isn't any other 1440p/144Hz monitors really, could probably afford an sli970 setup if it was nearer the price of some of the cheaper 4k monitors
User avatar #82 - HonkIfIDriveWell (11/25/2014) [-]
If that's the case, you could always forgo the 144hz and get the extra 970 and one of the cheaper 4k monitors for a just-as-awesome-but-in-a-different-way setup.
User avatar #83 - cocopopsonfire (11/25/2014) [-]
mmm im still a little on edge about 4k, from what i've seen scaling in windows is a massive issue (and im not all that familiar with linux)
User avatar #85 - HonkIfIDriveWell (11/25/2014) [-]
It depends how big the screen is. If you get that 28 inch Asus one, I'm sure you'll be fine.

mmm i'll have to check that out
User avatar #87 - HonkIfIDriveWell (11/25/2014) [-]
Actually, it seems like most of the sub $500 4k screens are 28". Even with 4k, I find it hard to believe that there's scaling issues with panels that size.
User avatar #88 - cocopopsonfire (11/25/2014) [-]

No, the argument in itself is flawed. "Only with faith/religion can good people do terrible things"? You're really putting yourself in a box there with that kind of overreaching statement. How could you possibly know what these people would have done if they didn't follow the same religion? I'm sure you're familiar with the butterfly effect? Not only would a single moment of their lives be changed, but millions of countless ones as well, considering these Muslim scholars were incredibly devout followers of Islam. So for you to say their religion wouldn't have played any part is a bit shallow in thinking. This all started with you promoting a world in which billions of people didn't exist, because of their religion, regardless of whether they were innocent or not. This to me is reminiscent of the ideologies of the Nazi party, so I don't think we'll really reach any common ground. Good day

Alright motherfucker, we've been over this several times. I already admitted I misspoke when I said that the world would be better without Muslims. That isn't what I meant, and you know that, so stop being that guy. A world without Muslims =/= A world without Islam. Nobody is promoting genocide here.

"I'm sure you're familiar with the butterfly effect? Not only would a single moment of their lives be changed, but millions of countless ones as well, considering these Muslim scholars were incredibly devout followers of Islam."

Yes, but the point is not that they would have done those great things without Islam, but that they could have. Their faith had nothing to do with their brilliance. It didn't make them smarter or wiser or more inventive. The philosophies and teachings that they grew up with may have shaped them as people, but none of those teachings or philosophies were inherently religious. Their faith is what made them Muslim, and they didn't need it at all. If anything it lessened their potential. Made them less open-minded. When you've been indoctrinated into thinking you have the answer, you stop asking the question, and that's never a good thing.

"However, only with religion can good people do terrible things"

This argument is very flawed, I hope I don't need to explain why.
What I'm gathering from what you're saying is that you acknowledge that
Islam is a religion that promotes peace, but it's the faith in a God that makes it "bad"?(there are a few other religions out there with this whole faith concept) Either way, nothing you've said so far could justify saying the world would have been a better place without Muslims ever existing.


User avatar #144 - HonkIfIDriveWell (11/09/2014) [-]
"This argument is very flawed, I hope I don't need to explain why."

The only flaw with it is that faith would be a better word to use than religion in that instance. The reason I say this is because religion is not the only ideology that can be built around faith. Faith in an almighty, omnipotent being is not the only type of faith, but it is the most powerful, and the most malleable.

"What I'm gathering from what you're saying is that you acknowledge that
Islam is a religion that promotes peace, but it's the faith in a God that makes it "bad"?"

No, it's the faith in a God that gives it the potential to be used for bad. It's the reason it has been used for bad.

"nothing you've said so far could justify saying the world would have been a better place without Muslims ever existing."

It wouldn't have been. There have been Muslims who were great people, but they would have been great people regardless. The Islamic Faith had nothing to do with it.

"only with religion can good people do terrible things."

Only a retard would think that. Only terrible people do terrible things, period. You might have once been good, but you are no longer good anymore.

Long story short, you say that some people use religion as an excuse to do bad things, therefore religion is bad. Guess what, pretty much everything in the world has a good and bad side.
Fire can be used to cook a meal and bring the whole family together, or burn the house down and kill everyone, that doesn't mean we should stop using just because someone can misuse it.

"Only terrible people do terrible things, period."

So just because someone is susceptible to manipulation, that makes them a terrible person? That little girl with explosives strapped to her body who gleefully blows up a school because she's been totally convinced by her parents that she is doing the right thing by Allah? Oh, yeah, she's a terrible person. She would have done that even if her parents hadn't indoctrinated her. Some little girls just like blowing up schools and murdering hundreds of people for the thrill of it, you know?

"Long story short, you say that some people use religion as an excuse to do bad things, therefore religion is bad. Guess what, pretty much everything in the world has a good and bad side.

Rage, hatred, malice. If someone burns a house down and murders a bunch of people for any of those reasons, they're not under the delusion that they're doing the right thing. They know it's bad. Most people would subsequently be consumed by guilt, and rightfully so, because they are at fault, and only them.

If it was faith that caused this person to burn that house down, then it's not just them at fault. If that faith can be taken and fitted into a destructive ideology with almost no effort, then whomever is responsible for that faith is equally, if not more at fault.

A truly omnipotent being would be fully capable of actually defining (or even changing) the very essence of what is right and what is wrong, so having faith in the existence of such an entity means that any philosophy, regardless of it's moral implications, has the potential to be not only acceptable, but good in the eyes of the faithful.

So, to elaborate on what I said before, faith is the only thing that can make truly good people do truly terrible things.

I'm so glad you said that. Using your logic; terrible people can do terrible things, and they may not need their religion to do it. Faith can assist people in doing wonderful or terrible things, but you're blaming the religion, not the people that carry out the misdoings. I implore you, take a better look at the teachings of Islam and you'll see that they promote peace. Islam is a religion with over one billion followers, but people will usually only see the radicals splayed all over the news and that's what they'll perceive a Muslim to be.
User avatar #114 - HonkIfIDriveWell (11/09/2014) [-]
"Using your logic; terrible people can do terrible things, and they may not need their religion to do it."

That's absolutely correct. However, only with religion can good people do terrible things.

"I implore you, take a better look at the teachings of Islam and you'll see that they promote peace. Islam is a religion with over one billion followers, but people will usually only see the radicals splayed all over the news and that's what they'll perceive a Muslim to be."

Most Muslims are undoubtedly peaceful, but just because their religion doesn't conflict with their peaceful nature, doesn't mean that its necessary for it.

Islam, like all major religions, is imbued with genuinely truthful philosophy, and that's great. But for some reason, people think that its their unnecessary faith in the supernatural that allows them to be good people, rather than the much more important underlying philosophy.

And it's the faith that makes the religion, not the philosophy. Those radicals can toss aside the philosophy and substitute their own, as long as they keep the faith. They can still call themselves Muslims because they still believe in the same god.

Yes, the peaceful teachings are good. The philosophy is good. The faith, however, is the core that allows it to be defined as a religion. That is the bad. Remove that, and you no longer have a religion, but you still have the good. And there's nothing the radicals can do with it. They cannot kill people in the name of peace. So, instead of having to deal with a million radicals, all you have to deal with is a handful of terrible people.

Hey now, that was uncalled for. I don't use shitty reaction pics. They're pretty good usually.

As for being evasive, I really don't see how I was. I didn't evade any question directed at me because there was none to ignore.

And for what you said that I disagree with... pretty much everything. But if I had to point out one thing I cringed the most at:

>There is no forever, only the here and now.

Well sneeze at my cock and call me Margret, isn't that "deep" of you. You're an atheist, fantastic, whatever floats your boat and tips your fedora.

To end, I'm gonna quote willys, because honestly it's the thing that comes to my mind the most. And this is how I know you've never felt love in your life.

If either you or your girlfriend were in love, neither of you would be okay with the idea of it ending at any time. If either of you were in love, the idea of it ending would be one of the worst things you could imagine.
User avatar #58 - HonkIfIDriveWell (11/09/2014) [-]
I do love my girlfriend, and I would do almost anything to prevent our relationship from ending, but part of being a grown up is accepting that just like anything is this world, eventually it will end. Even if it is by death.

What I said about "forever" had nothing to do with atheism. It's a necessary reality that everything has its time. If you believe in an afterlife, that's fine. Everybody should retain a spark of childlike wonder, lest we lose our humanity and become logic machines. But that's all it is. An afterlife. An encore. I don't need my reward to be eternal, and I certainly don't want to have to be dead to claim it.

Every motivation I need to love my girlfriend is right here in this life. Why bother? You ask, if its going to be over before I know it. Well, that is the reason. It won't last forever, so I'm going to make the most of it while I have it.

As for being evasive, I really don't see how I was. I didn't evade any question directed at me because there was none to ignore.

And for what you said that I disagree with... pretty much everything. But if I had to point out one thing I cringed the most at:

>There is no forever, only the here and now.

Well sneeze at my cock and call me Margret, isn't that "deep" of you. You're an atheist, fantastic, whatever floats your boat and tips your fedora.

To end, I'm gonna quote willys, because honestly it's the thing that comes to my mind the most. And this is how I know you've never felt love in your life.

If either you or your girlfriend were in love, neither of you would be okay with the idea of it ending at any time. If either of you were in love, the idea of it ending would be one of the worst things you could imagine.

I do love my girlfriend, and I would do almost anything to prevent our relationship from ending, but part of being a grown up is accepting that just like anything is this world, eventually it will end. Even if it is by death.

What I said about "forever" had nothing to do with atheism. It's a necessary reality that everything has its time. If you believe in an afterlife, that's fine. Everybody should retain a spark of childlike wonder, lest we lose our humanity and become logic machines. But that's all it is. An afterlife. An encore. I don't need my reward to be eternal, and I certainly don't want to have to be dead to claim it.

Every motivation I need to love my girlfriend is right here in this life. Why bother? You ask, if its going to be over before I know it. Well, that is the reason. It won't last forever, so I'm going to make the most of it while I have it.

If you go into every relationship with the mindset that it will likely fail, then you have my sympathy has that is a very cynical way to date people. What kind of effort are you going to put into the relationship if you already expect it to fail before it's even started?

Jesus, you are like a brick wall. Knowing that my relationship will likely fail at some point, if anything, makes me cherish it all the more. My girlfriend feels the same way about this. We don't have any delusions about dying in each others arms like Romeo and Juliet. Life is fleeting, and the experiences, feelings and relationships that make it up are equally transient. Stop being a child. There is no forever, only the here and now.

And I'd like to thank you for taking the time to write that, because to be honest with you I'm screencaping it. The only question I'm left with is whether to save it in my edgy or cringe folder.

Cringe is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. I've been cringing at every single you've said, so there's that. In terms of edginess, I'm not sure anything I've said qualifies. It's not like I've offended anybody. Out of curiosity, instead of responding with a shitty reaction picture and evasive remark, how about actually telling me what part of what I said you disagree with.

Hey. I was just reading you're argument on the Ignorance post and I'd just like to say well done for sticking up for yourself and I agree with everything you put across. :)
User avatar #3 to #2 - HonkIfIDriveWell (12/24/2011) [-]
Thank you :) I do try my best when it comes subjects such as religion on which I feel so strongly.
