Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Performance w/ a GeForce GTX 460  - Performance w/ a GeForce GTX 460
Sat, August 28 2010 | 12:01PM | PermaLink Feedback?
As you can see the MSI GeForce GTX 460 1GB Cyclone video card does well with AA and PhysX turned off (the test settings in the screen shot above). Once AA is enabled the FPS dropped by roughly 35%, but the GTX 460 was still playable at a resolution of 1280x1024. With AA disabled and PhysX enabled the performance dropped down by over 50%. Both of these performance drops were rather significant. We can only expect performance to go up from here once the drivers have been fully optimized for Mafia II when it comes out on August 24th here in the United States and on August 27th for the rest of the world.

Be it screensavers, desktop wallpapers or font type and sizes, visual customization at the OS level is usually important to all kinds of users. Recognizing this, Microsoft has made it easier than ever to apply and adjust individual themes with Windows 7. We looked at this last week showing you how to find hidden themes buried in your hard drive as well as sponsored ones available through Microsoft's online Personalization Gallery. This time around, we are going to show you how to customize the Windows 7 login screen. There are various methods to accomplish this, with and without third-party software. I understand many people might not want to rely on a third-party application, while others would appreciate a quicker, safer route. First up is the more hands-on approach, and then the utility.
