Re: Gaming without Windows(OS)

yeah, it would have been great if they'd thrown their weight behind wine... but it's definitely possible they decided they'd be better off with a fresh start, wine is quite old, who knows how much technical debt, etc. has collected in there.

Re: M.2 drives and heat

Partially true. The controller benefits from cooling but the memory chips won't benefit and may actually perform worse if heavily cooled. So suffocating drives under covers is bad and full coverage coolers aren't necessary. Naked chips and a small sink on the controller seems ideal. huh, I would no...

Re: Your current monitor(s)?

Oh, that's a nice one! My current 24" is an FHD at 75Hz... As it is, I don't think I can fit another monitor on my desk, it's a smaller one :D Unless I did one vertical?

Re: Your current monitor(s)?

Dell S2716DG 1440p 144hz G-Sync. Been on sale for $400 quite a bit recently. Funny, a friend of mine recommended that one just now :D He wants me to upgrade the monitor BEFORE I upgrade to a current-gen system... Currently running an Asus Gryphon Z87 with Thermal Armor with a i5 4670k with a Titan ...

Re: What games are you looking forward to coming out?

Monster Hunter (except the part where I'm apparently the only hold out who's still waiting for it to come out for real [PC])
