      I know this is a late reply, but some (very few) games, like GTA4 went from 30fps to 55fps when I switched from a 3.4ghz C2Q (45nm) to a 4.2ghz I7, both with gtx460.

    Where the hell are the Cyber Monday deals??? Dell doesn’t have a single thing posted on its website (yet they had lots of Black Friday deals). Tiger Direct has a ‘listing’, but it’s the same stuff at the same prices as the last week or two…

    Very disappointing 🙁

    EDIT: I did just pick up 10 of the I-Inc 28″ monitors from TigerDirect for staff at work – a bit of an early Christmas present. 27.5″ viewable, and a true 1920×1200 res for $249 ea (Cdn, but it’s the same price in the States)

    EDIT II: Dell finally posted some deals on their website, and they give new meaning to ‘underwhelming’. I had an XPS 15 in my cart from Black Friday, and the discount on it then was better than what they were offering today! Still, $1,700ish for a loaded-to-the-gills XPS 15 (including DisplayPort video and dual USB 3.0 ports) isn’t bad, so, having finished mourning the loss of the /[

      Cool, yes, I’d look forward to a post with your impressions.

      That’s a pretty nice deal on those 28″ screens, too.

        The staff are happy. I like happy staff 🙂

      Who gives a damn? It’s a mighty impressive OC result.

      Standard AI is buggy, get Sorian version.

      Sorian version is far more challenging and consumes far less CPU power.

    Hybrid TV with battery power. That is certainly an unexpected novelty. If it reduces power consumption I’m all in!
