    Does gaming off a USB3 SSD impact CPU?

    Hello. I just want to say that my assumption on this is that any performance impact is negligible, however I am not positive, and a google search result shockingly gave me no firm information. A good External USB 3 SSD (such as the Samsung T3 -...

    Is it possible to use a Bluetooth speaker as a main PC / Gaming speaker?

    I was thinking of getting one of those Bluetooth speakers (such as the Bose Sound-link mini series) for use as a speaker for my PC. It would be convenient, as it would allow other devices to connect to it as well as the computer itself for a easy to use and centralized sound area. My concern...

    Corsair TX 750M good PSU

    I notice Microcenter has the Corsair TX Series TX750M for $69.99, which is by a large margin cheaper than any other place I can find. In fact, its cheaper than CX600M, which from my understanding is their "cheaper" PSU line. So, pardon my ignorance, is there something im missing here, or is...

    Anyone heard anything about a Haswell based Surface Pro?

    I am VERY tempted to get a Surface Pro, however it seems like a Haswell variant would be a very large improvement. I hear the battery life is one of the bigger issues with the Tablet, and Haswell would hopefully improve that a lot, and the better graphics are of interest to me. I need a...

    3DS Owners - Do you use the 3D at all?

    Some friends and I were talking about the 3DS (we have various originals and XL's) and I realized that none of us - NONE of us - use the 3D at all. I always assumed it was just me that left it off, but apparently its a very common thing with my friends. So im curious, are we a anomaly or is...

    Does anyone else game with post processing ON?

    Just got a free Zotac 660Ti and BIOS question

    Its the non AMP edition, running reference clocks. As far as I can tell the only difference between the AMP edition and the normal edition is clocks (PCB itself seems the same).
