Nvidia's been on a rampage releasing new graphics cards over the last couple of months, one of those being the GeForce GTX 750. The reference blueprint for the GeForce GTX 750 part calls for 1GB of GDDR5 clocked at 5GHz (effective) on a 128-bit bus, and while EVGA offers such a SKU, it's now offering a couple of models with twice as much memory -- EVGA GeForce GTX 750 2GB and EVGA GeForce GTX 750 2GB Superclocked.
Maybe in the future, someone will invent self-expanding storage -- a hard drive that increases in capacity when you fill it up. That'd be cool, wouldn't it? Sadly, such technology doesn't yet exist, but on the bright side, HDD storage is pretty affordable these days. For example, check out today's top deal for a Western Digital 1TB IntelliPower 3.5-inch Internal Hard Drive for $60 with free shipping (normally $77 - use coupon code: [EMCPHHB26]). WD is pitching this drive at AV buffs who need 24/7 reliability for always-on video streaming. It has 64MB of cache and various technologies like Preemptive Wear Leveling (PWR), which makes the drive arm frequently sweep across the disk to reduce uneven wear on the drive surface common to audio and video streaming applications.

If we woke up today only to find that we'd somehow been transported back 15 years to 1999, we'd be talking about Nvidia's first GeForce-branded graphics card, the GeForce 256 (NV10). In fact, Nvidia marketed the card as having the world's first GPU since it was the first to integrate a geometry transform engine, dynamic lighting engine, 4-pixel rendering pipeline, and DirectX 7 features onto the graphics chip. Returning to the present day, we're still talking about Nvidia's GeForce cards, only today's variants are much more advanced. One of them is also the topic of today's top deal -- an EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Graphics Card w/ ACX Cooler for $517 with free shipping (normally $600 - use coupon code: [EMCPHHP24]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate and Free Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag with purchase). This card has 2,304 CUDA cores and 3GB of GDDR5 memory on a 384-bit bus -- stats that would have sounded like gibberish 15 years ago.

This month EVGA is unveiling its GeForce GTX 780 as well as an all-new GPU cooling design dubbed ACX that it plans to stick on all its high-end GPUs for the foreseeable future. The cooler’s acronym stands for Active Cooling Extreme since it uses active cooling and it’s more extreme than getting a Red Bull enema.
