I'm looking for a robust headset. I don't care a ton about sound quality (average is fine) or mic quality, I just need to stop breaking headsets by putting them down twice in a long session. I've broken 3 Turtle Beach headsets in the past year (I've been buying them since they're cheap, hence why they break so easily), what would y'all recommend?

I still stand by my Audio Technica ADH AD700X's and a Modmic. You can get both for about $150 total and mine have been good to me so far. The headset is open back however so you may not want them if you're living in a noisy place. The next time I upgrade I'm probably going to be moving to a Blue Yeti on a mic arm and Sennheiser HD 598's which have come down in price substantially ($150 for the headset, $115 for the mic). If durability is an issue though I couldn't recommend spending $300 on low-end studio quality audio.

I'm double posting and you can't stop me.

Nvidia 1080TI info drop:

Over 2ghz base core clock
Over 5.6ghz memory clock
250amp power delivery (incredibly overclockable)
11gb of vRAM

$699 price tag.

Launching next week.

35% faster out of the box than a 1080, faster than a TitanX.

Wow.

@Miffyli
can you try this with gpu fans turned on at 100%?
you might think i'm joking, but i'm honestly curious how extreme passive cooling can influence max stress performance on a gaming pc.

...but i admit i also wanted a laugh.

I have been meaning to do that at some point just for giggles, but haven't had a chance yet plus I dunno if I even have proper spot where I could put my computer :v

Wow.

Pleasantly surprised by the specs. I expected worse performance for a higher price. Will probably buy next week. Founder's Editions work well with my case, especially if the cooler has been improved.

Teamwork is where players function by themselves, but their effectiveness is multiplied when they work together. Not a checklist of "did we bring a healer so we can start playing?"

i want to get a[laptop,notebook, protable pc, chromeboox, or whatever people call them today] to substitute my broken tablet and use it for simple stuff such as translating and using youtube, but i have no idea where to start looking(not gonna buy discount, that stuff breaks in a couple days regardless of use), with a budget of about 150-200, what could i get? can i at least obtain a 720p screen? size doesn't matter as long as it is 10" or more.
