It has a nearly 3x higher theoretical throughput than the highest standard 802.11n, but I have no real-world experience with it, nor would I know how to take advantage of its higher speed with the moderate level of network access I require at home.

Regardless, for a desktop system, I would try to stick with ethernet.

I have the Auria 27" that is sold at MicroCenter. It has a matte finish and although I'd prefer glossy the matte really doesn't bother me and obviously I never have to deal with glare.

Blue

Never settle! Always upgrading, awesome.

Also out of the 4 Koreans I own, crossovers are by far my favorite and highly recommend.

For you Tahiti lovers out there. I know this board has a few owners.

Pretty good review from Kitguru.

We managed to push the Sapphire HD7870 w/Boost to 1235mhz core and 1645mhz memory. Any higher and very minor artifacting would occur (analysed with software).

Extremly good read on FPS and "Smoothness" of frames. Some of you with micro stutter and unbuffered frame feeling, check this out.

Frame Rating Pt1

Frame Rating Pt2
quote:

The second part of our final reveal of the Frame Rating performance methods have shown us some interesting results for the $999 and above card lineups as they stand today. The Radeon HD 7970s in CrossFire, representing the currently available and upcoming HD 7990s don't look great in our testing as we mentioned above, and I would seriously consider your buying decision before picking up this configuration.

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 690 and GTX Titan present another debate though on the issue of single versus multi-GPU options. In our testing the GTX 690 definitely introduces more frame time variance than the GTX Titan, but the cards are so fast as it is that running the GTX 690 at single monitor resolutions like 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 don't cause a big enough problem to be a factor, thus giving it the edge because of the higher average frame rates. The GTX Titan is a powerful card and performs admirably in the single display testing but it really stands away from the GTX 690 on multi-monitor resolutions like 5760x1080 where the 6GB frame buffer can help a TON. Not having to worry about moving frames between GPUs at that resolution also helps produce a smoother animation as well. If you are buying a $1000 card and you think you might want to run NVIDIA Surround, then the GTX Titan is your better solution

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


I noticed this has been a hot topic on a lot of websites lately. Apparently some companies are trying to find some new ways to measure frame rates other than fraps for more accuracy.

Yea that came about from reviewers and consumers all getting different results with the same systems.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


I read a real good one that talked about how nvidia and amd don't like the use of fraps because of where it measures the frames. I'll have to look later for the article, it was a good read.

I believe I posted that here. I don't remember.

Edt:
About that AMD article, there were also a ton of other great stuff in it. Really enjoyed the read.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


nah i think you have enough. i mean u could upgrade to 16gb for like $50 extra bucks so its not a major bottleneck anyways.

the only bottleneck i really see is the GFX card but thats to be expected due to its price and expected performance

but you have a 2g 650ti so you should be good.

you will be able to do whatever you want on your machine.

Fckk no.. It is gpu but then again still not holding you back from doing what you want to do.

In benches it would be memory also, you woul new tighter timings and up the speed but 8gb is enough to buffer most anything.

Edt:
For the G45, it has a ton of headroom.

I owned the G65 before buying an MPower last year. It OCs well and has like 8phase power to the CPU.

It is an awesome board.
