It is great for gaming, but I also use it a lot for programming. I have a 30" IPS and a 21" auxiliary monitor that I find I hardly ever need to put in. At work I just have a laptop and a 21" monitor. I find that it is much easier to program on my home computer, but during working hours they want me to be at work where I am less efficient. So when I come home, I use my rig for my own projects.
It's all a big lie. In real terms, the price of everything is going up 10 to 15% or more per year, but salaries are remaining stagnant. This can't go on forever.
where else can you get hundreds of channels of TV i hate and crappy internet for one low price of $200 a month?
$200 a month? That is a heck of a deal. I've got the $99 Cox Bundle and that costs about $250 a month.
To use a car analogy, using tiles on the desktop is like replacing the steering wheel, pedals, radio knobs, light switches, climate control knobs and shifter in a car with an Atari joystick because it worked so great for playing Pole Position.
