Since this article is outdated, and just an FYI, the OneDrive issue isn't an issue anymore because every time I save a file it goes to My desktop. It defaults to the last place I saved a file. Only Office 2013 always chooses OneDrive first.

If you don't do much with graphics, buying a powerful GPU is just silly.

For the 5ghz guy, 5ghz is a piece of crap as it has a hard time punching through walls in even an average size home. If you live in an apartment, 5ghz/2.4ghz will not matter, anything bigger forget 5ghz all together, utterly useless.

On the SkyDrive thing Doc, um, it's called OneDrive now (since 8.1 Upgrade 1). Just thought you should know ...

"...it's going to be faster than what you get with your integrated graphics by a factor of four or more." That's an understatement.

Isn't that i7 a rather dated Sandy Bridge processor?

Was it still that dated in March? They really need to check these old articles to see if they're posting something even remotely relevant.

Sometimes, I've seen an outdated article from the mag posted right after updated info from a web post that invalidates what was in the more recent post from the old magazine issue.

more likely january. The march issue comes out in february, and it takes a month to get the mag out.

Assuming you mean the "i7-2660" (which I assume is an i7-2600), it's only 15% off the performance of the i7-4770. Sure, it's a few years old, but it's by no means dated.

I'm pretty sure David needs a Titan Z. I think we all do, for that matter.
