  1. Thank for the info. I'm dedicated to working, but there's nothing to work on. My job involves customers traveling internationally, and well that's been a bit slow for the past 6 months. I'd rather do anything else then stare at a blank screen waiting for something to pop up or risk nodding off. I'm using my personal PC, not my companies. I just log onto the companies website, which launches an APP (VM) that acts as my work desktop.
  2. Good day all. I'm having a difficult time finding info on this, but it might be due to me not wording it correctly. I work from home 2 days a week, and things are painfully slow.

What would be the difference in performance between my current i7 2600k and an i5 4690k? Would it be minimal or noticibly faster? Also, is the GTX 980 worth the extra $200-$300 than the GTX 970?
  5. Hello, Long time lurker, first time poster. I have a really bad itch to build a new PC, but I'm hesitent to build one due to all the new hardware coming out within the next year. I use my PC mostly for gaming and using HandBrake to convert videos to H.264. Since Intel Skylake CPU's are coming out soon (hopefully by the fall of 2015) should I wait? This is what I currently have: Intel i7-2600k CPU @ 3.4 GHz Stock Intel CPU heatsink and fan ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard 8 GB of RAM GeForce GTX 760 2x Samsung Monitors The new build will have the following: Intel Core i5-4690K @
