    [TBG] Video Card Comparison: Blower-Style vs. Open-Air Coolers

    The Tech Buyers Guru has investigated open air (custom) vs. blower (reference) coolers. They tested a reference 780 ti and the MSI 780 ti Gaming models in both a full size ATX case as well as an ITX case, in single and in SLI modes. They briefly cover the history of blower cards which I found...

    HardOCP looking into the 970 3.5GB issue?

    Anandtech (Ryan Smith) has an article about it. In short this is probably why it gets noticeable (stutters?). Check out the article, it's pretty informative at least compared to PCPer's NV statement...

    User Interface or GUI Software Tool

    WPF editing (for example) will show a GUI editor view like this (in Visual Studio, completely drag and drop or manually editing the XAML): http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/bb514553%28v=vs.100%29.aspx

    Trying to find the spark of interest in programming again.

    ^ I would echo the suggestion above, however use the new and free Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition which is fully featured! http://www.visualstudio.com/products/visual-studio-community-vs Watch the free, and quite good tutorial videos from Microsoft on the Microsoft Virtual Academy...

    Which ram is better for Gaming (no overclocking)

    Interestingly the Tech Buyers Guru just examined this question. They should be able to make your decision easier as you can weight the cost benefit difference. http://techbuyersguru.com/ramspeedgaming.php

    [TBG] Does RAM Speed Matter? DDR3-1600 vs. 1866, 2133, and 2400 in Games

    The Tech Buyers Guru has a new RAM article, focusing on the speed this time. http://techbuyersguru.com/ramspeedgaming.php Take a look, it's an interesting read. It's always interesting to see the real world effect that memory has on (primarily gaming) performance. The conclusion offers solid...

    About to pull the trigger on 4K - thoughts?

    4k is amazing, I'm going to guess most of the naysayers haven't tried it. I think you have a great package. I'd only consider XDMA crossfire as an alternative (not the 980) but then freesync isn't ready so this is your best alternative atm. The 980 isn't worth the premium imo. You'll have to...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SLI 4K Video Card Review @ [H]

    Feel free to speculate but you don't have a big data source to back that up. AMD R9 290 2,800 overclocks beg to differ. 1118/1595MHz Default clock: 947/1250MHz. 18% oc on average R9 290x Average oc (4800 submissions) 1143/1584MHz Default clock: 1000/1250MHz. 14.3% average oc...

    NVidia fried my laptop (and some friends', they didn't keep the receipt/box), I got a free POS laptop from the class action settlement after it had been replaced once and fried again.

    Antec EDGE 650W Power Supply Lucky Draw

    I'd love to have that sleek looking Antec PSU in my rig. It wouldn't be my first, nor my last Antec PSU.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SLI 4K Video Card Review @ [H]

    Back to the review, thanks for the comparison and I look forward to the overclock results. 4k is demanding and we need all the performance we can get. Big die maxwell and 390x can't get here soon enough.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SLI 4K Video Card Review @ [H]

    Enjoy the power savings and go for the 980's then. Let's see if your tune changes when the 980 ti comes out. All valid points, and as the mid-range NV card (marketed as high end but isn't the big maxwell), it's an impressive card from a technical standpoint. The only problem I have here is...
