    G700 an Upgrade Over Performance MX?

    I currently have a Performance MX and I'm thinking of picking up the G700. Would the G700 be an upgrade at all? I just picked up a G600 for MMO gaming purposes so this will be more or less for FPS and general gaming.

    If Gaming on Windows 8 is Bad Will You Stick With Windows 7?

    I have a few Windows 7 Home Premiums, but I'm pretty sure a future build will include more than 16gb of ram. So with that in mind, I'm wondering if it's a good idea to pick up Windows 7 Pro before it is no longer for sale if Windows 8 is going to be bad for gaming. But that's just my situation...

    Why the switch to mini displayport?

    Silly question, but why have all the graphics cards switched to mini displayport? As far as I know, high end monitors have displayport connections rather than mini displayport.

    2 Fans on Fanmate 2 Question

    Hey guys, I bought a splitter and have two fans connected to a Fanmate 2. Speed Fan only shows one fan speed value. Does anyone know if the fan speed value shown by Speed Fan in this case is accurate? Not sure if something funky happens when you connect 2 fans rather than one to a Fanmate.

    Do you guys format data drives?

    Kind of a stupid question, but do you guys typically reformat your data drives when they aren't fragmented? Like do you guys purposely move your files away from that hard drive to reformat it periodically.

    Is There A Good Gaming Wireless Keyboard?

    As far as I know, there aren't too many wireless keyboards around besides the ones made by Logitech and none of those are really performance or gaming keyboards. I was wondering if there's a good wireless gaming keyboard. Price isn't a concern.

    Asus vs Panasonic?

    I'm considering getting the Asus vw266h or the Panasonic L32S1. I don't there is a size and price difference, but the reviews/user comments seem similar. Both monitors are not the greatest for desktop use but are good monitors for gaming among other things.
