We're not at the point where we need to worry about running multiple processors for gaming and daily computing chores, though if you're piecing together a workstation for some heavy lifting, that second socket might be more of a necessity than a luxury. If that's what you're after, be advised that Asus just announced its Z10PE-D8 WS motherboard, a dual-CPU socket mobo based on Intel's C612 chipset.
Sure, Dell is rolling out a 5K display, and sitting behind that are several 4K displays. Of course, to run rampant with one of those monitors, you'll need some serious hardware -- good luck trying to play games at the native res with anything less than dual-GPU setup. Not yet ready to make that kind of commitment?

We've heard time and again that things are getting super competitive in the motherboard business. In terms of the top spot, there are really just two top-tier players, those being Asus and Gigabyte, and last we heard, Asus held a slight lead in shipments as the two companies head towards a photo finish. Not looking to leave anything to chance, it's being reported that Asus cut its motherboard pricing by up to 10 percent in order to keep its global market share.
You know it's a serious card when it comes in a briefcase
See that image of the Ares III? According to Asus, the Ares III is the world's fastest water-cooled dual R9 290X graphics card on the planet, and we won't argue that claim.
