    Is the era of cheap GPUs over?

    I paid $665 for an 8800GTX on launch day with overnight shipping and it was worth every penny. On the other hand I'm now rocking a used GTX 570 that I got right here on [H] 3.5 months ago for the spectacular price of $265 delivered, and I am very happy with it. Shrug.

    Download Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    At the very least there should be an option for "desktop" mode with start menu and all the metro stuff disabled. When the dev preview came out I assumed that there would be something like this in the final shipping version, ala "Windows Features", but the CP has me thinking they're going full...

    Download Windows 8 Consumer Preview
