Re: Looking to upgrade from my i5-3570K need some advice

I'll just comment on your windows 10 question. If you have an old windows 7 pro key, you can still use that., Just install Windows without key, boot, activate, enter win7 key done. If you are going to buy a new windows 10 version, I'd go with a pro version. Legal Keys can be bought for around $10-$1...

Re: Galaxy S8 is not going to feature a 3.5mm headphone jack

The 3.5mm audio jack is the last 'standard' jack out there that is entirely analog, and thus very limited. One might call it the VGA of audio. The audio source quality is at the mercy of the DAC in the source device (e.g the iPhone), while many argue that for headphones in particular, it is better ...

Re: Questions on amp wattage and speakers

Without going into theory and specs, Try too look at it this (simplified) way. The bigger the speaker cones, the more air they displace, but the harder to move that air. 8ohm is a higher resistance than 6 ohm, so harder to drive. The wattage you see is the max wattage, so as long as you don t turn u...
