    Recommended PSU for Dual System Rig

    I would say with complete confidence that an 1100w PSU is fine for both of those machines, even with a moderate CPU overclock on both. PSU's are grossly oversized to machines any more.

    3 x 3770 Deliddings (Complete)

    Whats that tool you got there? I delidded mine by hand with a razor blade like I did in the Athlon 64 days. No spacers, no yadda - but this seems like a more consistent way.

    Will We Soon Enter A New Era of 1080p Budget Gaming?

    This right here. I don't feel like jumping to 4K will be beneficial. If I do, it will have to be a larger screen size, and unfortunately that is not the route I want to go.

    Monoprice Not Keeping Word on Warranty

    Take the store credit, that is more than fair. They are making it right, you are being picky.

    Elon Musk Personally Cancelled Customer's $130K Car Order

    More reasons why they should be sold through private dealers like other cars. So the fucking owner can't personally cancel your car order for a little shit talk. Get real, Elon. You aren't the second coming of Jesus.

    Windows 10 Budges A Bit As Masses Cling To Windows 7

    I'm actually shocked but it appears as if a lot of the machines at my workplace (small company, <100 employees) have been upgraded from XP straight to 10. Refreshing at the least.

    Gameplay doesn't feel smooth even at 60fps

    Am I the only one who isn't even happy with 60FPS? When did that become a benchmark. I want >90FPS in BF4 and in CS:GO, I prefer >200.

    Samsung Serif TV Preview

    I actually prefer to look up, especially if I'm leaned back. I hate it when people only have their TV's 20-30" or so off the ground. Feels like I'm looking down.

    Math Shows That Fewer Roads Lead To Less Traffic Congestion

    This. And furthermore, any modern vehicle newer than 2010 (this is broad, I know there are plenty before so that qualify as well) can stop, handle and accelerate better than any vehicle produced when road speed limits were set. We have seen an unparalleled advance in vehicle safety, dynamics...

    AT&T's New Gadget Will Put Wifi in Your Old Ass Car

    Do your cars never need suspension work? I see stories like this all of the time and no one mentions suspension items. Or maybe I'm just nutty and I'm not satisfied until I can go over washboard pavement with not a single clunk squeak or knock from anything suspension wise, so I end up...

    AT&T's New Gadget Will Put Wifi in Your Old Ass Car

    I was going to say, unless this thing is smaller than 1" deep, it's going to protrude way too far. And even then, my newer car has a door that closes over the OBD2 port.

    Apple Hopes To Charge $40 For TV Subscription Service

    I pay $50/mo for a cable box, 200+ HD channels, Epix Movie Channel and all the commercials I could ever ask for. :D Gotta love Time Warners bundles. $110 for 50/5 internet, the cable package and home phone (which isn't even hooked up).

    Need mobo w/ onboard hdmi that can handle 1080p mkv playback

    Dude, just pick up a cheap Celeron (haswell) G1830 or G1820 and a cheap board. Mine with a Micro ITX ASRock mobo in sig plays any MKV i throw at it, at 1080p, etc. I'm talking 20GB MKV files.

    My office is a hotbox

    Crack a window open, it's October. Or if you're unlucky enough to be in a warmer part of the country, I'd honestly just pick up a window A/C or a portable A/C that vents out the window for that room. The cost of running modern day air conditioners is NOT that outrageous at all, especially if...
