Which smartphone should I buy? Sony's Xperia T or the new Google Nexus 4?
Hello again Tweakers,
I'm looking into buying a new smartphone this Christmas and I wanted your help in this matter. Basicaly, I'm torn between the Sony Xperia T and the Google Nexus 4. Ussually I buy a flagship phone and keep it for around 3 years. My last 3 phones were Sony, so on one hand I'd continue the legacy, but on the other hand I don't think that the T's dual core is too future proof. I love Sony's design and the camera is better, but the Nexus has Jelly Bean and 2gb of ram. A big minus in the Nexus is the lack of an e pxpansion slot.
Both phones are at the same price here and that further makes my decision harder, so I hope you can help me find a resolution in this matter.
Thank you for your time!
I have the new Samsung S23A750D, 120Hz-capable monitor and now need a new GPU, suggestions?
I just bought a new monitor (Samsung S23A750D) and I want to upgrade my graphic card.
- Samsung S23A750D
- AsRock Z77 Extreme4
- Intel I5 2500k @4,5Ghz
- 16GB of DDR3 1600Mhz G.Skill Ripjaws CL9
- Palit GTX 470
- CoolerMaster GX 750w
What card should i get? (cost ~650$)
I want to upgrade my AMD-based system, what should I get?
I'm looking for my next upgrade.
I have the following currently:
Yamakasi qHD monitor.
AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE @ 4.3Ghz.
32GBs of DDR3-1333MHz G.Skill Ripjawz.
M4N98TD EVO (with the built in GPU turned onfor PhysX.)
EVGA GTX 670 @ Stock everything.
Samsung 830 for OS.
Some WD Blues for storage.
Where do I go from here? I don't really play that many 3D game as I used to, Skyrim is pretty much the only real 3D game I play anymore. I ask because I always feel the need for more power. I understand that anything from Intel will be better, but I haven't had any Intel desktop products since the Pentium 3 days. Should I wait for whatever is coming out from AMD or jump ship while I can?
P.S. - I'm a bang-for-your-buck kind of guy.
