Mornin '13 - News Leftovers
In this morning post I'm not going to yap on and on about irrelevant shit as I usually do. Instead, I'm going to offer a selection of leftover news stories - ya know, I few scoops you may have missed (or, to put it another way, stories I have missed):

- Razer Hoping on The Tablet Bandwagon - Peripheral manufacturer Razer us getting into the Tablet race with it's new product Razer Edge, which is being described as "a 10.1-inch device being touted as the world's most powerful tablet, and a quick look inside both the base model and the souped-up Pro version show why. Both pack a third-generation Intel Core processor and a discrete Nvidia GT640M LE GPU. More specifically, the Razer Edge sports an Intel Core i5 CPU, 4GB RAM, and a 64GB SSD, and the Razer Edge Pro comes configured with a beefier Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB RAM, and the option for either a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Both models feature a USB 3.0 port, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and both run on a full version of Windows 8 with Intel architecture, in turn allowing PC games to run natively on the Edge without the need to be ported or optimized."

- $83 Million Goes to Kickstarter Projects in 2012 - According to a Best of Kickstarter 2012 feature there were 561,574 backers who pledged $83,144,565 via the popular service for crowd funded projects.

- Crysis 3 Wii U No Longer in the Making - Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli explained in a recent interview that the WiiU version of Crysis 3 won't be developed. "There has been discussions between Nintendo and EA and Crytek, but the bottom line is that there is that there's not enough business drive in it," Cevat said and continued, "It's a purely business decision. I'd love to see it on Wii U, but what I love to see and what gets done at the end of the day are two different things. Even so, I could initiate it but someone has to sell it, right?"

Wow, $83 million to Kickstarter projects. Why do I get the feeling that number will exceed 100 million in 2013?

I just wish the price of Geforce 4xx and 5xx cards would drop. Due to budgetary constraints I'm always a little behind on my hardware upgrades, but I've had to keep to my 250 gts for much longer than I'd have liked.

Dammit, DayZ should hop on the kickstarter and earn themselves a few million dollars. It's a good game right now, but it could be a gem with proper funding.

On a different note, I'm thinking about maybe getting a new GPU. I stopped watching this market about a year ago, so can anyone advise me, is it a good time to upgrade now? Or maybe wait till the next-gen consoles come out? From the little e-shop browsing I came to like this card​ddr5-amp-edition-d354341.htm just because it's really cheap, about 160 dollars. I'm thinking it perform paired with my GTX560 Ti.

@Reikhardt : try ebay. I sold a GTX 460 last year for $69 USD when I got my 660 TI. 560's are under $100. Not top end cards, but more than adequate for the 99%.
