    1080 vs 1070 / SLI vs Single / Any AMD cards worth considering?

    I've been playing WoW Legion maxed out at 4k with my 970 and have been getting 40-50FPS consistently. Entirely playable. Out of the games you listed this is probably the most intensive one, so you will be fine with a single 1070 or 1080. I would not recommend 1070 SLI. If you're prepared to drop...

    EVGA X58, i7-920 CPU, 6GB Corsair XMS3 - bad motherboard, what next?

    Yup, I recently just some mine for about $150 which can't be far off from what I paid for it in 2009. The 6-core Xeons are compatible with them and very, very cheap right now. It's a popular combo. You could sell what you have and look at this thread if you still need something. Personally I...

    WoW Legion Pre Order @ Amazon $39.99+Tax

    It is. Even with their plummeting subscription numbers, Blizzard has to be making at least $1 Billion a year from this annually.

    100$ budget. Best air cooler for 6800k oc?

    A $100 budget is enough for a good AIO watercooler. Air coolers will cost about half that.

    The future of multi-GPU gaming?

    Nvidia officially doesn't recommend 3 or 4 way SLI anymore. The scaling issues are just too bad. There needs to be an easier way for developers to optimize games for SLI/Crossfire, otherwise it's not worth the time investment, especially as how a relatively few amount of people actually have...

    any OSVR owners?

    I'm interested to see how Razer's epically bad quality plays into this. The price is good and I've had my eye on this for a while, but it's Razer...

    Seagate Unveils Massive 10TB Hard Drives To Meet All Storage Needs

    Do Seagate drives really have failure rates that bad? I haven't had to buy a hard drive in quite a long time, but I remember them being extremely reliable once.

    Socket 3647 goodness

    I'd like to know how a setup with this platform differs from the Xeon Phi co-processor aside from it not residing in a PCIE slot.
