HTPC -- The Next Generationview story

http://hardforum.com – Howdy. Well its time to upgrade the old HTPC. Its worked ok but not great. I had tapped into the spare parts bin for that build and the overall performance of the system was just so-so. A few of the key parts (case, mobo, proc, ram, psu) resided in a hot-in-Summer and then freezing-in-Winter, dusty storage unit for almost two years. So I experience periodic BSDs and other related oddities. (Hardware)

[xubuntu] Performance Regression after upgrade from Ubuntu Lucid to Trustyview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I had a well running openframeworks project running on Xubuntu Lucid with opencv 2.4.8, CUDA 5.5 and the associated drivers on my Shuttle SH87R6 (QC i5-4670) with a GTX 780 (no unity, no compiz, no compositor). I (idiotically) choose to do the "security" updates, and since then my rendering time went from 0.033 seconds per frame to 0.2 seconds per frame. The code has not changed. (Hardware)

Easiest way to get 4x screens?view story

http://hardforum.com – Building a box for a friend and he is adamant that he wants 4x screens. What is the easiest way to accomplish this? It's all for webpages and spreadsheets - 3D performance is not a factor. Intel GPU will do 3x out from the motherboard I believe, so what about the fourth? Just any random old card? (Hardware)
