Post Petition to customize RIG info display - 02-14-2014, 04:35 | posts: 567 | Location: Hong Kong

Hi everyone, I wished to post this on General Chat but its description says no hardware talks so I come here.

This is a trivial matter but somewhat it is annoying - our rig display on this forum.

Personally I don't install any sound-cards. It is very not cool to leave it blank or say "on-board". I wish I can just un-check soundcard from the RIG display in some way.

Truth be told, what's so cool to brag about soundcards? A gaming headset, gaming mouse or gaming monitor is more important, no?

If any admins see this, please consider adding customizable RIG display or just remove soundcard for something more worthy (like LCD model)!

This would be cool I guess. I wouldn't say its a high priority issue in any way though

I'd like to more lines for extra HDD's and also a space for displays. Prob wishful thinking though since Hilbert gave it a makeover a year or so back.

Well the main site at least, not the forum.

This touches on one of my irrational pet-peeves.

Get a decent soundcard and some good speakers already. You people with i7 quad-cores, 2x GTX-780s coupled with onboard sound are killing me. I will never understand why folks will put so much into the video horsepower of their PC and let the audio remain an afterthought.

Because if they are like me audio doesn't matter enough to add one.I used to have one and then ran sli for a while and couldn't use it with the second card in there.Then I found out I didn't miss it at all.

Quite a few of us have proper audio subsystems. Like mine for instance proper sound card and good audiophile cans. Many more gurus on here have better sound systems than me.

This. My hearing isn't the best after playing in metal bands for 10 years, but I also do studio work using my rig. My speakers are studio monitors, my soundcard is an 8-in 10-out high end one. Good to have the audio section here.

Don't really see the need for a high end soundcard to listen to gun shots and explosions, onboard > surround system does fine

Not really a big music listener and films sound fine

Well you don't "see" it, your ear it. And it does make a significant difference, especially in gaming with positional channel transition

Its a big difference to me. Even using my 6 year old XFI Extreme Audio PCI card in 5.1.

When my Creative SB Titanium soundcard died, onboard was enough to stop me from playing and enjoying games. You get to hear everything around you, FPS games aren't just gun shots and explosions. And not all games are FPS games.

Audio is more important to me than graphical horsepower, and it's already over looked by many who would benefit from upgrading. It needs to stay.

Theres different people with different interests here, some care about sound some don't. Something that might work would be to do some check boxes and tick what you want to show .

I think you never experienced what a good soundcard and heaphones can do to you. It does wonders. To spend 500 on a gpu and then dont spend 50 on a good soundcard and headset is beyond my comprehension. Ill tell you, with all respect and in the most polite way, and in all truthfulness, that i wish to punch in the face people like you because of this. Cmon mate give it a shot.
Regarding the box on stats, who cares...
Peace.

I know, right?

To each their own but I really think these folks are missing out on the full experience of what good or great sound brings to the table. My card is nothing special but it's much better than onboard.

Removing / Substituting the Soundcard field for individual users is a minor tweak however it would likely mean modding all of the templates on the site to work, this would also apply if a user wanted all possible fields to be displayed / populated.

Just leave onboard in place, I'm not sure what the big deal would be?

Awe come on, you don't stroke yourself after a quick glance at your own machine every once in a while? Everyone does

Sure of course, but I also like to see everyone's without having to ask.
I use the default Aria theme which is a bit lacking on system specs. Like it doesn't include OS version or HDD/SSD for example.

I also use Aria, the other two are too busy visually and thus hard to read.
