It's about damn time a manufacturer blinged out a solid state drive with a skull! Why? Uh, that's a good question. But forget about the 'why' and ask instead, "Why not?"

We think it's groovy that today's processors come with integrated graphics -- that's one less expense for mom and pop, neither of which play games.

Check out today's top deal for an Asus GeForce GTX 760 Graphics Card for $220 with free shipping (normally $250 - use coupon code: [EMCPBPC36]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate).

When you see the Republic of Gamers (ROG) tag on an Asus product, you know the company has it done it up right, and that's certainly true of the division's first ever AMD FM2+ motherboard. Asus ROG makes it debut into FM2+ territory with the Crossblade Ranger, a high end motherboard packed with features and technologies designed to give gamers an edge on the virtual battlefield.
This might be the gaming monitor you've been looking for
Slow your roll, early adopter -- before you go checking out with that 4K Ultra HD monitor in your virtual shopping cart, you should familiarize yourself with Asus ROG's Swift PG278Q panel. Teased earlier this year, Asus ROG officially announced the Swift PG278Q this week, a 27-inch display with a 144Hz refresh rate, blazing fast 1ms response time, and Nvidia G-Sync technology. It isn't 4K, but it is prepped and primed for gaming at high res.
It's no surprise that the sales person at your local electronics store is aggressively trying to sell you on the merits of a 4K monitor, and there are certainly some good points to be made. However, it's still early, the technology isn't fully baked, and the return for your investment isn't the same as with a quality 1080p panel. Take, for example, today's top deal for an Asus VN248H-P Super Narrow Bezel 23.8-inch Widescreen LED Monitor for $135 with free shipping (normally $170 - use coupon code: [EMCPCHF22]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate). In addition to a narrow bezel, this monitor sports an IPS panel with a 5ms (GTG) response time, 80,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, built-in speakers, a D-Sub port, and two HDMI ports with MHL support.
