1x GTX 1080 or 2x GTX 970

While purchasing two cards may seem gnarly, it really wouldn't be better than a single 1080. First, you won't have to fuss around with getting SLI to work properly. Not that its a massive pain, but ...

Which Mac should I buy? One with the Nvidia GeForce GT 750M or the latest one with AMD Radeon R9 M370X?

If you plan to work with Nvidia's CUDA framework right away to do some GPU-based computations (neural networks primarily), you should stick with GeForce 750M laptop. However, 750M's memory is only 2&...

Anything you find for PCI would probably be for dedicated servers, and thus would not have any 3D acceleration capabilities. The problem with PCI (non-Express) is that the bus simply does not have ...

Smallest but fastest computer?

A product like this is non-existent. Today's component sizes are way bigger than this, so it is not possible to fit those specs into such a small thing.

Between Intel or AMD, whose latest motherboards will support more numbers of future generations of CPU sockets and specifications?

At r/buildapc we don't really look at future proofing since it's generally more expensive and not really that good. But if you are looking to upgrade your CPU every 2 or 3 years, you are currently ...

Graphics Card recommendation for the setup

1080p's pretty common and 'trivial' to drive - any midrange card should be able to handle it at high or ultra settings on 90% of games. I'm an nvidia guy myself, and I'd say a 960 (or even a 950) ...

Upgrading from EVGA GTX 660 to EVGA GTX 950 - worth it?

what is the difference between NVIDIA RTX™ 3070 8GB GDDR6 and NVIDIA GeForce® RTX™ 3070 8GB GDDR6?

Geforce is simply a suffix that is not always written down, it is the same GPU though. Do be careful when looking for laptops though. Nvidia GPU’s don't always get the same power limit, meaning two ...

Importance of the number of PCIe lanes

As I understand it, PCIe 4 has double the throughput of PCIe 3. Thus, PCIe 3 x 16 has the same throughput as PCIe 4 x 8, correct? Correct. A RX 6600 with its 8 lanes in my PCIe 3 system would have ...
