Only Tesla is just as crap as the others, it's faster sure but do a few quarter mile runs at the kind of acceleration rates it's capable of and say goodbye to already short range. Never mind the...

Your only real choice right now for full 4K HDMI [2.0] with HDCP 2.2 and full HEVC decode support, is the Nvidia GTX 960. This isn't what you'd call a "very high-end" gaming card. It's more of an...

Just some more thoughts about the ol' wi-fi transfer speeds and 100TX Ethernet. I had my sister's laptop over here a few days ago and was installing a few things for her from my NAS. I'm using this...

I'm pretty sure Dolby Headphone is merely a software feature. For example, PDVD can enable Dolby Headphone output on any sound hardware. If you have a Realtek audio chipset on your motherboard...

Shouldn't the file still exist on the PC's drive though? Even if the copy fails, usually a read operation won't corrupt a file and move commands don't delete the source file until the copy has...

Wow, sorry I stand corrected. I would never have imagined that Nvidia cards that recent would not have HD audio support. What were they thinking?

Sure it does. Nvidia cards since the 200-series support HD audio (I think there's a couple 2xx that can't but for the most part since then). For bitstreaming you need Fermi and later (4xx series)...

Video is never "bitstreamed" over HDMI in the same sense that audio can be. Bitstreaming video would entail sending the display something like h.264 (like as a file) and then having the display...

True but Metro/Modern UI is much better as a 10ft, no? In theory you should be able to replace WMC just by using apps/buttons in Modern UI (apparently called tablet mode in 10?). How well this...

Agreed in this respect. I'm certainly not going to go "upgrading" my 7950 to a GTX 960 either--it's a sideways move other than power consumption/heat and HEVC features.

However I think it's...

From the looks of it it's a H77 chipset mATX board with one x16 slot and three x1 slots.


You can pretty much put any GPU you want in there, provided your case can physically fit it and your...

G3258 is not really that great; even when OC'd to 4.4Ghz it's only about equal to an i3 4130 overall. It's cheaper but it pretty much has to be OC'd to compete with an i3. With the i3 you have the...

I dunno I don't get where there's a problem with "p2p" (price to performance?). 750 has nothing to do with P2P, unless you meant power to performance?


I don't know why anyone would buy a 750...

Uh sure but even if you have a GTX 750 Ti SSC-SS LXBii Turbo Power Edition, it's not going to be near as fast as a card in this class, and we're only talking about $50 more.

Yeah it just dropped today. Performance is around the same as an R9 280/285, which is certainly good but slightly disappointing given how impressive the 970 and 980 were. $200 price point is good...
