You're probably familiar with the argument, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Well, Juliet may not have cared about the name of things, but Microsoft does, which is why you'll never see a Windows 9.

According to Roccat, the Tyon represents an evolution of the gaming mouse and is a "true game changer." In other words, the hype is strong with this one.
Adding RAM to your PC is like giving your system an energy drink, at least in some cases. Where it was once sluggish -- like content creation or even just booting into Windows if you skimped at the outset -- RAM can liven your PC right up. How much you should run with depends on your setup and what you use your PC for -- if you're a power user or perform RAM heavy tasks, then take a gander at today's top deal for a 16GB kit (2x8GB) of G.Skill Sniper Series DDR3-1866 Memory for $149 with free shipping (normally $165 - use coupon code: [EMCPAHD33]). It's fast, sports relatively tight timings, and offers lot of capacity for RAM hungry applications.
