Super cool! Wait, $170 on Amazon? For a freaking keyboard? $70 maybe, but $170? What. Ever. Guess I will put that on the wishlist and forget about it. Side thought.... it's taken me almost 2 years to "unlearn" normal keyboard behavior to get used to my Logitech K800. If I got a keyboard with real keys again I wonder how long it will take me to revert back? (I'm thinking about 90 seconds). LOL. The K800 is a cool keyboard but it just sucks nuts to type on.
Newegg had a one day Shell Shocker sale last week on the Acer K272HUL's for $300 each, shipped. I got 2. No tax (TX) and I got them in 2 days with the free shipping. I think they are beautiful and I marvel at 1440p now. DP in/out (for daisy chaining!), DVI-D, and 2 HDMI's. Nice on inputs, AND it comes with DVI-D and Displayport cables! My GTX 770 does fine with 1440p over HDMI too, but I'm using the DVI-D cables since it came with them. Using the DP cable from my...

Great. I updated 5 systems the other day, but no problems. Mix of 7 and 8.
You couldn't pay me to use a McAfee retail product. I use Norton and NOD32 (half and half) and performance seems the same on both (why split? Because rebate deals and multiple computers). NOD is a lot easier to configure and doesn't harass me to run scans all the time. MSE / Defender is just barely above useless.
I went away from Firefox a year ago because any page with flash on it (half the web) would just bring it to it's knees. Chrome was so much faster. I kept it installed in case I needed old bookmarks etc, so I'll fire it up and let it update and see what happens. Edit - Yikes I don't like the new interface much. Hmmm.
LOL that's like a 4% difference for $100 more. The GTX760 is a great card, probably the best you can do under $300. But the 770 was a major step up from my GTX 460 and the 760 wasn't out yet (I bought it right after launch like an idiot).I don't have GTA 4 to bench, sorry. Plus there are so many graphics mods and upgrades for GTA it would be kind of moot... I doubt anyone plays the vanilla stock version.
Sure.

Oh so it's a slightly different benchmark than what you ran, interesting. I just googled Final Fantasy XIV benchmark and that is what it came back with.I'm not overclocking the GPU manually other than what it ships with. I think EVGA factory clock is a little higher than stock though.
Ok I can see from his RE6 benchmarks he's running a GTX 760, so yeah there is a little graphics performance disparity there. I got 11276 on the RE6 bench using the default settings for 1920x1080. It went below 60 a few times during some of the busier scenes but stayed above 60 for the most part. Never bogged down too much to where you could really notice it but you could see it on the graph. Once again looks like I'll be limping the 955 for a while longer. I have had...
