Catching up to DraftKings, promo code

DraftKings app

So just to tell you how out of the loop I am when it comes to TV and sports these days, the first time I heard about DraftKings and FanDuel… was on a news article about how they were spending upwards of $150,000,000.00 on advertising ($150 million).

Mini-itx AM1 gaming system w/discrete video card and DC PSU!

Compact but packs a punch :-)

Mike sent me some info and photos of his awesome mini-itx system: I crammed the AM1H-ITX along with a 5350, a Kingston HyperX 4gb DDR3-1600 stick, Slimline DVD-Rom, Microcenter house brand120gb SSD, a couple 40mm fans, and an EVGA GTX 750 2GB (non-ti) into a Travla C158 case.

New video card for 4K UHD and Starcraft 2 SC2 HotS

Every four years or so I invest in a new video card. The latest edition, ordered today, is the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB card. I actually meant to order a BOOST edition but somewhat mistakenly ordered the ‘OC’ edition. However, I like the overall features of the card and if it performs well enough I will keep it. Otherwise, I may return it and look at a GTX 760. My general usage scenarios will be to use
