    Probably the best video out there about how CPUs are made (Silicon Run)

    The video starts at 2:56: The video was made by HP and Intel and is a little dated (from the 90s), but it's still relevant. It also shows how the notion of "adding on 2 cores" is nonsensical, what can go wrong in making integrated circuits, how the circuits are built, what a metal layer is...

    Are 5870s still worth $150 or more???

    I was just looking on ebay as I was thinking about selling my 5870s to upgrade. I was surprised to see XFX 5870s going for $150 plus. One with an Zalman VF3000 went for $200 (I mention this because I have two of these coolers but don't use them because I need the PCIe slots). Is this correct...

    Newegg: $200 AR 256GB OCZ Petrol
