>"[P]rostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography, and even incest and pedophilia ... should be legal as long as no one is coerced. They are illegal only because of prejudice and narrowmindedness."
>"Some rules might be called for when these acts directly affect other people's interests. For incest, contraception could be mandatory to avoid risk of inbreeding. For prostitution, a license should be required to ensure prostitutes get regular medical check-ups, and they should have training and support in insisting on use of condoms. This will be an advance in public health, compared with the situation today."
>"For necrophilia, it might be necessary to ask the next of kin for permission if the decedent's will did not authorize it. Necrophilia would be my second choice for what should be done with my corpse, the first being scientific or medical use. Once my dead body is no longer of any use to me, it may as well be of some use to someone. Besides, I often enjoy rhinophytonecrophilia (nasal sex with dead plants)."
>"I am skeptical of the claim that voluntarily pedophilia harms children. The arguments that it causes harm seem to be based on cases which aren't voluntary, which are then stretched by parents who are horrified by the idea that their little baby is maturing."
>"I've read that male dolphins try to have sex with humans, and female apes solicit sex from humans. What is wrong with giving them what they want, if that's what turns you on, or even just to gratify them?"
Only after doing research into Richard Stallman have I realized how proud I am to be part of the GNU + Linux masterrace

I have a 470GTX.
Is a 660ti a big upgrade? I am mostly interested because they are pretty cheap (~$350AU).
Also, I have no fucking idea what the difference between cards of different brands within the same range are. Could you pick me out a 660 from this website?
I have a gigabyte motherboard, so I was looking at getting:

I want to get a new keyboard.
Looking for mechanical, without a keypad.
I'm presently using a Saitek Eclipse, which is performing just fine. The only thing is, that as I find myself playing videogames more - mostly Battlefield 3, Dota 2 and Starcraft 2 - my mouse hand keeps running into the keyboard.
My questions are:
1. What are your experiences and recommendations when it comes to Cherry keys?
2. What are you guys typing with?
Thanks for any input.

My computer freezes. When I stream 1080p videos in any browser it always freezes in seconds. Otherwise, the freezes seem pretty random. It doesn't just freeze for a while, I have to kill the power every single time.
Sometimes when I play a demanding game it freezes instantly, sometimes after a while and sometimes not until I've played it for hours.
Sometimes when I just browse it freezes, and sometimes while using some other software. It never freezes while idle.
I've tried replacing RAM, GPU, HDD & cooling to no avail. When I replaced the cooling system I noticed that the temperatures dropped drastically and thought "this nightmare is finally over", but no, still freezes with the exact same patterns even on low temps. I've also stripped down the hardware to bare necessities, also to no avail.
Tried plenty of different drivers for most hardware. Formatted & re-installed Windows several times on different HDDs, even different version, also to no avail. Still freezes in the same manner.
It first began when I was heavily editing a bunch of vidya during the hot summer (month ago or so). Without monitoring my temperatures, of course. It was after the first time my computer froze that I noticed that my stock i7-3820 went up to ~83 degrees while I was editing said vidya.
Now the question that remains is: is it the CPU, PSU, Motherboard or perhaps some software issue that I'm yet to discover? Do you recognize the problem from my description? Note that it Never freezes in safe mode. Even under high load.
Please help me as I really need to be able to fully utilize my computer for financial reasons. Please!

>No wonder the Android platform, where new models appear every week, now represents 68% of the smartphone market, up from 47% a year ago, while Apple slid to 17% over the same period.
>In case you're bad at maths, let me work that out for you: Android's market share is now four times that of Apple. Four times!
