NVIDIA CES Recap

With the main keynotes at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) all said and done here is a little recap of what each company had to say and offer.

For some of us money is tight and the costs of buying a whole new system premade are too much. The systems at your local Best Buy are expensive and don’t even have good parts. The best way to get yourself back up to date and for the least expense is by purchasing parts and building your own PC. Now many people initially cringe at that concept thinking that they can’t possibly be smart enough to put together their own computer.
