Hello one and all! I was just looking at my profile to make some additions, (didn't, yet) and noticed that I've been a member for a little over a year now. I must admit that now and then I check some of the other performance sites and have found PureOC to be one of the most professional and helpful around. One thing that is similar though, unless you know where to look, most of the performance guides are somewhat dated. Now I realize this would require a great amount of time to do, but, if the "Powers That Be" could put together a set of guides that reflect current tech. CPU's, GPU'S, and now we have APU's. AMD cpu's are fairly simple and straightforward, however Intel has what, 4-5 different sockets? Personally, I have very little knowledge of Intel products, but many people own or will own this type of system and find that they would like to tweak it a bit. Do the same rules apply for all sockets, or, are there any differences with each socket. Graphics cards have their own range of questions as well. Then of course there are APU's and what can be done with them. Of course, you can't leave out Memory and it's role in all of this. Now, for the last thing, Software! There are many utilities, applications, and benchmark programs. What would be considered a beginners "Performance Tool Box"? What would be good to add as your skill grows. Of course hardware recommendations would be worth noting as well.
It's taken me quite a while to put this together, however, some of this might have been covered already. If so, then perhaps it's time to give it a central thread and call it "Home".
I thank you all for the knowledge gained in the past year and look forward much more!
