Who has time to be productive when there are so many awesome games to play, as well as a full slate of upcoming titles? You might as well embrace the fact that those TPS reports will have to wait because there are more pressing things on your agenda, such as upgrading your graphics card.

One of the best deals in PC gaming hardware right now is the GeForce GTX 780. That's because Nvidia aggressively slashed the suggested retail price last week, but don't think the only cards you get are those vanilla reference SKUs. Have a look at today's top deal for an EVGA ACX Cooler GeForce GTX 780 Graphics Card for $495 with free shipping (normally $510 - use coupon code NVEXCLS96; additional $10 mail-in-rebate). EVGA's ACX Cooler sports a custom two-fan cooling solution and comes overclocked to 967MHz (1020MHz boost). Be sure to check out some benchmarks we posted of a stock clocked GeForce GTX 780 a few months ago when the suggested retail prices was $650.

We know it's hard, but the time has come to finally retire that beloved Barton rig that's served you so well. We too remember the feeling of popping in an Athlon XP 2500+ and effortlessly overclocking it to 3200+ speeds, but like Old Yeller, you know what the right thing to do is. So, what comes next? If you're willing to jump fences, we suggest giving Haswell a hearty handshake. It's easy to get started -- just click through to today's top deal for an Intel Core i5 4570 Haswell chip for $190 with free shipping (normally $200 - use coupon code EMCWXVL33). This quad-core part comes clocked at 3.2GHz with 6MB of L3 cache.

Take a look around and you won't find many mini ITX computer cases designed specifically for power users. It's a tricky form factor when you're working with high-end parts, though not one that's impossible to work with, a point EVGA set out to prove by developing the Hadron Air. The Hadron Air is one of not many mini ITX cases for enthusiasts, measuring in at 305mm (12 inches) high by 169mm (6.65 inches) wide.
The power supply might be the single most under appreciated component in a system build (don't go generic, folks), but at the same time, that doesn't mean you should overspend on way more power than you need. If you're putting together a budget build, EVGA hopes you'll consider its new 600B, a 600W PSU with 80 Plus Bronze certification, meaning it's over 80 percent efficient at typical loads.
Wouldn't it be awesome if there were do-overs in everyday life like there are in some sports? That's pretty much what EVGA is offering through a line of graphics cards that now feature "Double BIOS," the marketing name for what's essentially a secondary BIOS in case you screw something up.
After achieving 80 Plus Gold certification for its original Supernova 1000W power supply (1000 G2), EVGA is back with a newer revision that now boasts an 80 Plus Platinum badge, meaning it's a little more efficient than its predecessor. The new Supernova 1000 P2 features 92 percent efficiency under typical loads and has a new "ECO Thermal Control Fan System" that supposedly eliminates fan noise during load operations.
Is your power supply (PSU) certified to work with Intel's 4th generation Core processor (Haswell) line without hiccups? Lest there be any doubt, EVGA specifically lists its new 500B PSU as being Haswell ready.
