Anyone have any comparison for between a ZxR and the EVGA Z87 Classified (Core3D onboard)?

I have no complaints with the audio the board puts out, but I am always looking for improvement and I am curious if this would provide any real benefit from an audio quality standpoint.

Wow, is it five years ago again already? I wonder how many times they plan on releasing this "special edition" case.

Yeah, don't really care if the game devs don't see a dime if I decide to sell a game I'm no longer interested in playing. They can invest all they like into making the game, at $60 a pop for a AAA, they make it back tenfold.

The argument has been made to the point of being ridiculous... You sell your used car, Ford doesn't get a cut. You sell your fridge, nothing goes to GE. You sell a CD, the band doesn't get a cut. If I am selling something that I have already paid the full asking price for, I am not going to take a hit on my selling price because the dev thinks they should get a little more. I defy you to name ONE thing that once bought and paid for by the end consumer, then sold as used, where the manufacturer gets more money simply so the user gets the privilege of selling it.

I haven't been a console gamer since the PS2, and I am eagerly awaiting news on both the PS4 and xbox720, but honestly if I hear that either one or both block used game sales or require an always on net connection, I will not be buying them. My message to those companies: try to control what I do with a product after I buy it (short of mass copying and selling/sharing it) and you do not get my business.

Congrats HBO, you just earned a customer. Not gonna pay for cable, but I just decided to replace my 'borrowed' files with purchased DVDs.

Dah, I hope and pray they actually have a case, especially since they aren't your run of the mill troll. Not meaning to sound like a typical anti-Apple cronie, but after years of reading one article after another of Apple suing anyone and everyone else in the industry for things like whether the edges of their devices are round or square, I'g glad to see someone sticking it to them for a change. The fact that it may be justifiable is just icing on the cake.

Nice to see karma coming around.

Cough Cough *custom rom* cough...

Please stop embarrassing yourself Apple. Yeah, custom roms may not be a readily available option to every user, but it IS an option with (most) Android devices, which is certainly more than can be claimed by ANY iOS user.

Point being, if anyone cares about the OS version used in any given device enough to be swayed by this line of marketing, they are probably going to care enough to educate themselves on how to go about changing it and in the process come to know it isn't an option with iOS. So realistically, if you follow Apple's line of reasoning in this campaign to its logical conclusion, they are really only damning themselves.
