      Dojo Rules & Guidelines   09/29/16

      By using this website ("Blade & Soul Dojo"), you agree that you'll follow these rules, and understand that if we reasonably think you haven't followed these rules, we may (at our own discretion) terminate your access to the site: Navigation GeneralRules Questions & Technical Support Blade & Soul Feedback Clan Discussion & Recruitment Marketplace Guides Roleplay & Fan Fiction Mods & Tools Off-Topic Discussion Reputation System Repeat Offenders Ban Appeals Staff Contact General Rules You will not post hate speech, personal attacks or private information. You will not "name & shame" any cheaters, exploiters, hackers or any other rather unpleasant players. Please use the in-game Report and Block features instead. You will not post extremely explicit text or images such as pornography or gore. All content should be safe-for-work. Borderline posts should be hidden with spoiler tags to maintain a SFW (safe-for-work) environment. Please do not post links or images from Imgur. Imgur blocked the Dojo from hotlinking their images with no warning or negotiation offers so any posted Imgur images or avatars will be broken or appear "white". You will not post off-topic discussion or derail threads. Memes, macros and other unrelated content should be hidden with spoiler tags. You will not create posts with the intention of flame-baiting, “circlejerking” or anything else that could be considered low-quality. You will not post images containing additional data such as embedded sounds or documents. You will not ask for free in-game items, NC Coins or gold (“begging”). You will not impersonate Dojo staff, Curse staff or NCSoft staff. You will not flood or spam threads. At the current level of Dojo activity, bumps will only be allowed once every three days. You will not bump old threads that have not been posted on for at least 30 days (“necro”). This does not include guides, mods, tools or clan threads. You will not create threads with the intention of causing unrest (“baiting”). You will not discuss any private servers, cheating, account selling, real money trading (“RMT”), trust trading or related activities. This does not include mods or tools that do not break Dojo rules. False reports will result in a warning or ban. Please read the rules carefully before sending in reports. Backseat (“pocket”) moderation will be hidden to keep the forum clean. If you find a post or thread that you believe needs to be moderated, use the report function. You will not edit your post if it has been edited by a moderator for rule-breaking. You will obey moderator warnings. If you are privately messaged by a moderator for rule-breaking and you wish to contest it, you may do so in the private message but remember that moderator decisions are final. Complaints about Dojo rules, Dojo staff members or the Dojo itself on the forum will be hidden and further action may be taken against your account. If there are changes you wish to see, use the Site Feedback & Support board. Topics and posts may be edited or altered by Dojo staff members due to bad formatting. This can include things such as posts typed in capslock or posts that have content that needs to be hidden with spoiler tags. Moderators may delete or hide posts without warning if the post was not worth writing a warning for. If your post is hidden or deleted and you were not notified, it was done so because it broke a simple forum rule and required removal. Questions & Technical Support Misinformation will be hidden. Constant spreading of misinformation or lazy replies will result in a warning or ban (i.e. “search it yourself”). Blade & Soul Feedback You will not beg NCSoft staff, Curse staff, Dojo staff or Dojo members for gifts, keys, NC Coins, etc unless participating in a specific giveaway. Clan Discussion & Recruitment Forum rules #3, #4 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Clan Discussion & Recruitment board. Do not create new clan threads over and over to advertise the same clan. Request for an old thread to be locked if you need to create a new one. Attacking other clans for their management or playstyles will not be tolerated and will be treated the same way as personal attacks. If your clan uses a language other than English, use [XX] in the beginning of your topic title (i.e. [FR] for French clans). Marketplace You will not attempt to buy, sell or trade NCoin or items from the Hongmoon Store. You will not participate in any real-money trading ("RMT") transactions, such as selling gold. You will not attempt to buy or sell premium membership. You will not participate in trust trades, such as selling services, trading cross-server, or selling items from the Hongmoon store. Guides You will not create any threads on the Guides board that could not be considered guides. Roleplay & Fan Fiction You will not roleplay in any board outside of the Roleplay & Fan Fiction board. Erotic roleplay (“ERP”) will not be tolerated and will result in a hidden post or deleted thread. Mods & Tools You will not post mods or tools that could be used to give you an advantage over other players (i.e. speedhacks). You will not post extremely explicit mods, such as nudity mods. You will not steal work created by another user. All work must be original unless you are given permission by the original creator of the work to post it on the Dojo. You will not submit mods that infringe on the copyrights of companies (i.e. Sanrio outfits, etc.). You will not submit mods that require users to bypass GameGuard, nor will you that teach users how to bypass GameGuard. Off-Topic Discussion Forum rules #3, #4, #8 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Off-Topic Discussion board. You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made. Please note, creating additional accounts (“sockpuppets”) to circumvent a Dojo ban will result in a longer ban of the original account and permanent bans of the additional accounts.

So I have taken Fatal's tip to heart and ordered a Gaming desktop and repaired my old laptop, which can only handle simple tekst editors.

So this is what parts I ordered:

Cooler Master Midi Tower HAF 912 Plus ATX No PSU (black)

Intel Core i5 3570K 3.40GHz 6MB Box

Kingston 2x4GB, DDR3, PC14900, CL9, HyperX Predator, XMP

MSI Z77A-G43 iZ77, SATA600 RAID, USB3.0

OCZ Voeding ModXStream Pro 700W, Modulair

Samsung DVD-/+/RAM SH-224BB/BEBE 24x, SATA Bulk (black)

Scythe Processor Cooler Mugen 3 PC Games Hardware Edition

Seagate Harddisk 3.5" 1TB, SATA600, 7200rpm, ST31000524AS

TP-Link PCI Adapter TL-WN781ND WLAN 150Mbit

XFX Graphics card PCI-e Radeon HD7970 Black Edition DD 3GB DVI/2xDP

Now I also ordered a 27 inch 3D screen so plan on doing some 3D gaming aswell.

I hope this is enough for a few years of gaming and im not sure wether I chose the right GPU or should have taken a Nvidia GPU?

If anyone has future tips for this build please tell me, your help is aprecciated. Thanks

No, you're good.

You could still acquire an SSD and have it as your primary disk.

The build looks great, net steps would be an ssd boot drive and populating more fan slots. Cooler components last longer.

That's a relief, thanks :D

Ok so I only have to get a nice SSD and a few fans. What kind of size and brand SSD do you guys reccomend for this build? I don't have money to buy a huge SSD capacity since I blew all my money on this PC. Also, doesn't that case come with all its fans installed? I thought so and if not, what kind of fans do you reccomend for that case?

Samsung 840 120GB is your cheapest best bet for $100. It depends on how much you want to spend.

Get 2 200mm fans. I like This.There's also a version of this fan with LEDs. Put one on the top fan slot and the other on the front. Take the 120 from the front and put it on the side.

For SSDs get either a plextor m5s 128gb, Samsung 840 Pro 120gb or Samsung 840 250gb. 64gb SSDs are a waste.
