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)

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)
