It's 2014 & FnJimmy is still terrible. Oh man we gotta get a new gimmick. FnJimmy can't carry us anymore.
For those who wondered what a G-Sync monitor was and why it was cool.
We mentioned G-Sync monitors at CES during our most recent podcast, if you didn't know what it was, this will help.

If you have a current fight stick that you want to add Xbox One capability to, Vicko is your man!
With the release of the xbox one came limited options for playing your favorite fighting games on the new console. You could A) Play on pad or B) play on Madcatz' newest fight stick. If you've already got a nice stick that's well broken in and don't want additional hardware, look no further than vickomods.com
This service will run $120 and is completely tournament legal by disabling the on board wireless functionality of the pad inside. If you're behind on the times on mod technology and compete in several fighting games across different consoles, I also provide mods for PS3/PC as well as legacy consoles.

Republic of Gamers (ROG) releases the ultimate 27-inch WQHD gaming monitor with exclusive gaming features, design touches, and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology
ASUS today at CES announced a new monitor that's 27 inches of 2560x1440 and 120Hz goodness, plus it comes with the new NVIDIA G-Sync technology built in. This is now the ultimate PC gaming monitor, but it comes with a premium price too... $800
This sounds great, but I would like to see a 24 inch version as 27 is just a tad too big for my desk, especially with multiple monitors. Of course, I'd like to see it come down in price too, but I'm sure that will happen with time.
The full release:
Las Vegas, USA (6th January, 2014) — ASUS today announced the ROG Swift PG278Q 27-inch gaming monitor. The Swift PG278Q features a WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, fast 120+ Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time and a full range of ergonomic adjustments. It also features ASUS GamePlus and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technologies that are designed to deliver the ultimate gaming experience.
Experience Immersive Gaming and Outstanding Visuals
Say goodbye to motion blur and lag with 120+ Hz refresh rate and 1ms response times for a competitive advantage in all your games, thanks to smoother gameplay and on-screen responsiveness. The ROG Swift PG278Q also features GamePlus, an exclusive ASUS feature.
GamePlus is an OSD overlay that enables crosshair and timer functions to be displayed on the monitor. Gamers can select from four different crosshair types to suit the gaming environment, while the timer function allows players to track elapsed time in real-time strategy games. These tools allow gamers to practice and improve their gaming skills.
The ROG Swift PG278Q provides an array of options that include DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output, dual USB 3.0 ports, VESA wall mount capability and a versatile stand with full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment for an ideal viewing position while playing the latest game titles.
The smart cable management feature rids your desktop of tangled wires, while the super narrow 6mm bezel ensures the ROG Swift PG278Q is an ideal choice for seamless multi-display gaming setups. Another nod to gamers and improving the user experience is a 5-way joystick that allows the user to easily navigate the OSD and make quick monitor adjustments.
The World’s First and Fastest WQHD Monitor powered by NVIDIA G-SYNC™
The ROG Swift PG278Q is also the world’s first WQHD monitor powered by NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology. NVIDIA® G-SYNC™, a breakthrough in display technology, synchronizes the display’s refresh rates to the GPU. The ROG Swift PG278Q eliminates screen tearing, minimizes stutter and input lag to deliver the smoothest gaming experience possible. With G-SYNC™ technology objects look sharper and more vibrant, while gameplay is more fluid and responsive.

Lara Croft murders people like it's nothing. Is this why the game has been around for like 20 years? I enjoyed this year's relaunch & this video is just like the game. Kill! Kill! Kill!
Starts off as your typical horribly acted slow dramatic start. Then the shit hits the fan & Lara murders everybody without thinking twice. Just like the game. 0 remorse. Pretty cool.

Will third party PCBs and cooling solutions clean the egg on AMDs face, surrounding the R9 290X?
As a follow up to my post about Radeon R9 290X and its thermal throttling, there has been some ripples in the pond, especially around third party cards. The issue with all reference R9 290X cards (PCB and cooling designed by AMD as a reference for their partners to follow for minimum power and cooling requirements) has been that the cards have no minimum clock speed. The room and case you're running the card in are the metrics that will decide what clock the card will run at... NVIDIA has a minimum clock speed that their cards will run at and it will clock up if it has the thermal headroom. AMD R9 cards will just keep clocking down with no base(clock). There is so much drama around this card, I encourage you to Dorito it and see for yourself.
Well, partners like ASUS and MSI are giving out samples of non-reference PCB and cooling solutions for the 290X this week. The results are astounding. The reviews of the ASUS DirectCU II specifically, show that the card can sustain 15% faster clocks due to more effective cooling. The main issue I have with R9 290X is still not resolved. There is still no minimum clock speed and if you don't have exceptional cooling, I still suggest you do not buy a 290X. Don't be fooled by the price difference between AMD and NVIDIA's flagship cards. They are not created equal in this current iteration. There is a real value in spending a little more money for knowing exactly how your GPU will perform. At least you get to choose if you're on the red team or the gold team when you buy ASUS's latest! Nonetheless, I'm glad to see board partners picking up the slack that AMD left out there. We need at least a two horse race if we expect any innovation in the industry, so thank you for keeping AMD in the race, ASUS! Here is a link to a review of the ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II for you to check out!

The woes of the day one SteamOS beta. I lived through the pain so you don't have to!
smh. SteamOS beta... Ya know, the instructions were written by an engineer for this beta... Need I say more? After some issues that I had to do some digging to resolve, I got this thing up and running. I braved this so you can wait until it's ready... and that's what I suggest you do! WARNING: There is no third party support for hardware and/or peripherals of any kind beyond the most basic PC components! YMMV based on your configuration!
Here is a video walkthrough I found from PCPer, after I suffered through the process!!!
