    eBay purchases - built or unbuilt

    As I prefer unassembled I always check with seller beforehand.

    LDD hardware support

    No he is too busy but he did put me in contact with someone who will build it for me. I will go ahead with this system after the new year. Once again thank you all for your helpful inputs

    LDD hardware support

    The friend who recommended these parts is a gamer, so I guess that explains it. As I don't play computer games all I want to do is use it for LDD and surf the net. Thank you all for your inputs as now I have something to think about.

    LDD hardware support

    HI I am new to Lego (started 12 months ago). Now as I wish to start doing some designs I was wondering what the optimum hardware set up would be for installing LDD. As I am not a computer buff I asked a friend , who is but not into Lego, to suggest a set up. His suggestion is as follows: CPU: Intel Core i7 4770 Quad Core LGA 1150 3.4GHz CPU Processor - Motherboards: Gigabyte GA-Z87-D3HP LGA 1150 Motherboard Memory: Kingston HyperX blu 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Memory KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB OC Edition Video Card Power Supply: Thermaltake SMART 650W 80Plus Bronze Power Supply Storage (SSD & HDD): Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" SATA III SSD MZ-7TE120BW Storage (SSD & HDD): Seagate ST1000DM003 1TB Barracuda 3.5” 7200RPM SATA3 Hard Drive Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB (BB) 24x Internal SATA DVD OEM Burner Drive Software: Operating System:Microsoft Windows 8.1 - 64-bit - DVD OEM Advanced Build Options: Upgraded CPU Cooler Installation I would appreciate to have some of your expert opinions/suggestions on the above. The approx. cost of the above is AUD1600.00

    [Discussion] 3 Wheeled motor bike

    Do you ride a bike? A quad has 4 wheels, try getting one around a corner at the same speed as a two wheeler. This 3 wheeler would be very difficult to tip into a corner, and when you did the push (under steer) would be quite difficult to manage.

    Review - 42009 Mobile Crane MKII

    Thanks for the excellent review. And I also have terrible trouble in differentiating the two colors.
