3.8/4? Class rank and SAT/ACT score is crucial. Achievements follow but are no where near as important to get your foot in the door.

Those are all great schools, you can not go wrong with any of them. Look up information about their computer science programs and schedule a campus tour. Ask around and see if you can find anyone that went there to get their opinion. I have been to UT and know people that go there, it is an excellent school competing with ivy leagues. UC/Cal schools should be no different.

You're a freshman right? If you're aiming for those schools you should be in GT/AP classes with straight A's.

I don't see why that makes them low quality. When I think of low quality I think of cheap stuff that can break or fail easily.

All the idevices I have used I rarely had a problem with. My dad has the 6 as well and no problems. Apple makes elegant products that just work.

Personally I would sell/return the entry level cans after you try them out and have an idea of the sound you are looking for and go for something high end.

I think you misunderstood, when they switched to Gibson that is when the problems started. It's a gamble buying them new.

Soundstage is great.

X2/DT 990 will satisfy a basshead. Dt 880 will not. Both will work well for gaming.

Electronic music; DT 880 is out of the question. They have a balanced sound that is fairly light on bass.

The Fidelio X2 has had quality control problems ever since they switched manufacturers from WOOX to Gibson. Glued on pads, pads leaking black ink, and sound quality not as good as the original.

Which brings us to the DT 990 Premium. Comfort and built quality is great similar to the rest of Beyer's headphones. Similar sound to the cheaper DT 990 PRO's, but better finish with a lower clamping force. They may require an amplifier or would benefit from one. They have a definitive V-shape sound, boosted bass and treble with scooped out midrange. Some people complain the treble is piercing while others love it... this headphone is not for everyone.

I'd get a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 Ohm. They are built like a tank, super comfortable (like having pillows on your ears), and work amazing for electronic music.

That's the thing, with the Clouds you aren't sacrificing much(except for the mic).They are essentially a rebranded Takstar PRO 80 which is a decent headphone by itself.

For it's design and price it's hard to beat. Closed back, V-shape sound signature, and good build quality all under $100.

What kind of music do you listen to? Is it ok if they leak sound (others nearby will be able to hear what you're listening to)?

Yes. It is the only headset based off an existing pair of good headphones that is not ridiculously over priced.

The mic is not great though but it's hard to find something decent without spending a lot more money, unless you want to use a pair of headphones and attach a mic to them.

Their slogan? "By gamers for gamers". More like "by marketers for your average joe".

Peripherals are cheap feeling. Tons of people hate having to rely on a software which requires an internet connection and crashes frequently. Keyboard's don't even use genuine Cherry MX switches.

Their headsets are terrible. **** sound quality, uncomfortable, break easily.

General design is overly gaudy imo.

And yes, they are overpriced.

Nothing. Just that most games would run better on Intel comparing the two CPUs.

Depends on the GPU you pair with it and the games you play. Some will see a large benefit from having a faster clock speed, others will not.

That site is not that accurate. It makes comparisons using synthetic benchmarks or based on the specs on paper.

If you're doing a platform upgrade I would definitely go Intel for gaming. Get a Skylake/Haswell i5.

You don't need one but it would be nice to have. Something as cheap as the $20 212 EVO would drop your temps around 15C while gaming, runs quieter, and looks better as well.
