    Microsoft Gives Windows 10 a Major Performance Boost

    Well if it was downloading then with my specs it could only mean their servers are getting overloaded. I will try again when I won't need the PC for some time...

    Microsoft Gives Windows 10 a Major Performance Boost

    This might have been nice if I didn't have to waste a lot of startup time with a stuck updated at 32% and having to revert. Of course I need to blame my drivers instead of M$ but I can't be bothered to troubleshoot this right now...

    8K A Great Challenge: NVIDIA and AMD

    A midrange GPU with Displayport handles 4K perfectly. You are only looking at framerates in demanding games which is not what they meant.

    Microsoft Announces Windows 10 Operating System

    It's surprising how some talk about the current desktop design failing. I still feel keyboard and mouse is superior to any touch screens and allows me to finish tasks way quicker. For example, try to type an entire page of text, nothing will be faster than a good keyboard that can achieve 400+...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 has Three DisplayPort Connectors: G-Sync Surround!

    From what I know, G-Sync still isn't supported in surround even with 3 cards. However there will be a driver that supports it and the 980 will allow it from a single card, with Kepler you would need 3 cards. Hopefully the driver will release soon after the 980 launch.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 Pricing Revealed

    Or just buy a new card every 4 years, it would basically be the same. You make the choice to buy something.

    Galaxy GeForce GTX 970 Pictured, Specs Confirmed, Early Benchmarks Surface

    Games are actually pushing hardware pretty hard and GPUs can't catch up, that's if you're using a newer monitor. 1080P 60Hz is really old by now, it's like saying that Crysis didn't push hardware when you were gaming at 720P or even 540P. 1440P 60Hz and 1080P 120+Hz monitors have been around for...

    The amount of power connections say nothing about the actual consumption of the card.

    Matrox Unveils Quad and Six-Head PCI Express Graphics Cards

    Now, this is an example of what we need to see on some gaming cards. Come on Nvidia, you can do it!

    GamingPC Releases 4.4 GHz Core i7-5960X-Powered Gaming System

    I don't get why people would buy this instead of build it themselves which is cheaper and gives much more freedom. They are not real enthusiasts from my point of view, just gamers with money.

    G.Skill Releases World's Fastest DDR4 3333 MHz Memory

    Insane prices for the fastest stuff isn't anything new, the fastest DDR3 kits are even more expensive than this. I would do the same if no other company could compete with my speeds because some people will pay for the best.

    ASUS Rampage V Extreme Is the Company's Flagship Motherboard

    Intel only launched 2 CPU generation with both X58 and X79 (first Tock, then Tick). Both lasted 3 years until the next platform released. Based on that I believe it's quite likely we will get a new platform with Skylake-E. Something new is always around the corner.

    ASUS Rampage V Extreme Is the Company's Flagship Motherboard

    Yes next year we can say that Skylake-E is only a year away and it's better to wait instead of getting the "old" X99 platform :P

    NVIDIA Announces Game24, Massive 24-hour Celebration of PC Gaming

    I agree with you except that WoW is the most time consuming game I ever played. I spent a lot of time reading guides instead of playing, not to mention the endless grinding. It's addiction what causes someone to do this and the regrets only come after you quit. Since then I like my games simpler...
