    The 0.5GB is so slow that once it's actively used to any significant degree, it will ruin performance. Just like when you run out of VRAM entirely and it has to use system RAM instead. Crash and...

    An R9 290. The GTX 970 is a little faster but only has 3.5GB VRAM effectively, so it's not really worth the premium over an R9 290. Though I guess it depends on local pricing.

    It's the best configuration so far. In the short term, something like an R9 280 with a Core i3 would still generally perform better, but with the Core i5 you at least have a platform that will allow...

    A Core i3 would be a little better, but the FX-6300 is fine. If you could get a Core i3 and a cheaper motherboard, that could free up some money for a better graphics card. And the graphics card is...

    Adding a second GPU is pretty much required if you want to play demanding games at 4K. And it's a much better solution than wasting your money on a GTX Titan X. But it's really only viable at the...

    Number 2 is best for gaming since it has a significantly more powerful graphics card than either of the other systems. I'm not comfortable with the bad power supplies in any of the three systems...

    It's a little larger than I would have expected, but still SSD-friendly.

    The beta is less than 4GB on disk.

    And that guidebook... hnnngg.


    What kind of monster are you.

    I backed it for $20 on Kickstarter (early bird discount, baby), and added more over the course of development as it looked more and more like it was going to be worth it all. I got beta access, and...

    Passively cooled graphics cards still require airflow, it just comes from case fans instead of fans on the card. That isn't necessarily a quieter solution overall.

    It doesn't seem to have that info in Windows though, which is where it would be useful for someone considering the change.

    Command line interfaces usually have a very strict syntax, and it's often quite unintuitive (until you invest effort in learning the system, but people don't want to do that). So there's a pretty big...

    Ubuntu is based on Debian anyway, so it's not like it's some huge difference. Linux Mint comes in both a Debian-based version and an Ubuntu-based version.

    Linux is not an OS, SteamOS is. And you can do the same trick with Windows 10, say it's based on the stable NT 6.x kernel. But the reality is that both are still works in progress, and should be...

    SteamOS is still in beta though. It's only really fair to compare release-quality distros like Ubuntu 14.04 with release-quality Windows versions like Win 7 SP1 or 8.1. If you were to compare between...

    Don't be ridiculous, the amount of games coming to Linux is obviously bigger than ever before.

    However... it's still far behind Windows. And it's going to take something drastic for it to really...

    Age of Conan gets my vote there. Not that SWTOR is good.

    And now I'm going to go sulk about the way great RPG series like KOTOR and Elder Scrolls got sacrificed on the MMO altar. :(

    There's been a lot of work on making common APIs and SDKs, so for now compatibility doesn't actually look like it'll be that much of a mess. But of course that can change along the way.
