    Can't stop i5 4300U from dropping max TDP to 15W after few seconds of load

    iPhone 8 or Galaxy Note 8 ?

    Monitors with Integrated Speakers

    I currently use the built in speakers on my LG 34" monitor for daily use and plug in a USB headset when I game or want to listen in higher fidelity. I didn't buy the monitor because of the speakers and it was kind of a bonus that it works ok. Perhaps the fact the monitor is huge gives it more...

    NVIDIA Cuts Price of its GeForce GTX 1080 Graphics Card: $499

    I got my Palit Jetstream GTX1080 for £550.00 brand new on Amazon about 2 months ago and still have no complaints with the price really. I still feel that for how good the card is that its worth it - It eats every game up, overclocks to 2ghz easily and is virtually silent!

    My Enermax Galaxy 1000w DXX power supply is still going strong... bought it in 2007 and its pretty much been on 24/7 powering all of my rigs to date. I don't want to push my luck so I recently bought a corsair 650w psu along with a new corsair case which should arrive later today. (Yay new toys!)
