"Raise the shields!," the captain barked at his crew as missile approached his spaceship, "I can't, Captain. We've lost power!," Lieutenant Save-a-Lot responded.

"I did, sir, and I saved us a bunch of cash by going with a generic model." *KABOOM* We're not saying your computer will go up in flames if you take Save-a-Lot's approach to upgrading your power supply, but why risk it?

Move over, LG G3, and make way for Samsung's Galaxy Note 4
Fans of the phablet form factor -- smartphone/tablet combination -- might have a tough choice to make in the near future. For one, there's the LG G3 with its 5.5-inch quad high-definition (QHD) display, 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13MP rear-facing camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, and removable 3000mAh battery. And then there's Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 4, which may end up with a 5.7-inch QHD display, according to leaked documents.
If it's a premium Android tablet you're after, you'll want to look into Samsung's new flagahip Galaxy Tab S family. There are two versions up for grabs -- an 8.4-inch model and a 10.5-inch SKU, both of which wield a Super AMOLED display with a 2560x1600 resolution (that's the same as most 30-inch monitors that predate 4K). In addition to the high resolution display, the Galaxy Tab S line is notable for its remarkably thin profile.

Liquid cooling isn't for everyone. Self-contained kits have certainly made liquid cooling accessible to a new audience, but if the idea of running water through your system still gives you the willies, or if you just don't want to pay the premium attached to such cooling solutions, you're in luck. Air cooling is still vogue, and affordable! Just check out today's top deal for a Zalman CNPS10X Optima 120mm Fluid Shield Bearing Shark's Fin Blade CPU Cooler for $30 with free shipping (normally $35; additional $20 mail-in-rebate). It has aluminum fins, copper heatpipes, and compatibility with a wide range of sockets.

Several generations from now, computer gamers will look back and giggle at how we once thought gaming on a graphics card with 1,536 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory a 256-bit bus was acceptable. While, snooty gamers from the future, we bite our thumbs at your general direction! Here in the present, those specs represent a capable card, one that's the topic of today's top deal -- an Asus GeForce GTX 770 for $310 with free shipping (normally $340 - use coupon code: [EMCPDPD27]; additional $10 mail-in-rebate). Making a great card even better, Asus swapped the reference cooler for its DireCU II cooling solution for 20 percent lower temps and 2X quieter operation. Snazzy!
