Will My GPU Support Touchscreens?
I want to build a PC based on your Midsize Menace (Build It, June 2012), except with 32GB of RAM, an Asus GTX 670 DirectCU TOP video card, and Windows 8. My questions revolve around the touchscreen user interface. Will the Asus GTX 670 drive dual touchscreen monitors with the ports it has, and what is the difference in types of monitors?...
Frequent Maximum PC readers will have noticed our love affair with Cooler Master’s Hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler. The 212 Plus came out of nowhere and captured our hearts—and a spot on our Best of the Best list—with its excellent cooling power and rock-bottom $30 price tag way back in 2009. It’s not the best CPU cooler we’ve tested, but we’ve installed it in virtually every stock-clocked PC we’ve built since, thanks to its unbeatable price/performance ratio. Cooler Master’s all-new Hyper 212 Evo costs five dollars more than the Plus. But is it five dollars better?
There are precious few things we'd turn down if they're offered for free, like the flu, jail time, and handerpants. Cooler Master is offering none of those things, but the company is giving away LGA2011 brackets to owners of its Hyper 212 Evo and Hyper 212 Plus air coolers so you can upgrade to Sandy Bridge-E without factoring in the cost of a new cooling solution.
