    Optical audio from different sound chip on ASUS Maximus VII Impact?

    Here's my thinking, Samsung's SM951 is really attractive, so I'd like a replacement for my mini-ITX mobo, one that has M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4: Found ASUS Maximus VII Impact.

    Monitor feature stagnation

    Is it just me or have manufacturers been heavily holding out on us? Sure, we all know the argument about the fact that monitor resolutions are pathetic when resolutions on current mobile phone screens are considered, but there's much more that is seemingly lacking. Is illogical to think...

    Lately I've been contemplating the direction that I'd like to see the visual aspect of computing go down in terms of monitors & screens.

    AfterBurner obseleting FRAPS & PlaClaw?

    With the new features introduced into MSI Afterburner, it's now seeming that there is no reason to buy the rather pricey Beepa's FRAPS at US$37 or Sytexis' PlayClaw at US$30. Afterburner 2.1 now supports recording gameplay video, which teamed up with screenshot support and overlays of...
