Christmas comes late for my PC with a EVGA GeForce GTX 960

evga geforce gtx 960I picked up the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 because of all the great reviews and it looked like the best bang for my buck.  I bought it off of Amazon Click here to buy to help me with my real time editing with CS 5.5 Premiere pro.   I know the software is a bit dated but if it isn’t broken don’t fix it right?

I have to say this video card is a lot longer then the card I had in before…  It also I found with the black plastic case harder to install in my Cooler master Haf 932 case.   Not Big deal though… I just added a screw to the install and it all worked well.

The Zotac GTX 560ti worked great for 3 solid years… never an issue one bit… It also played PC games well too.   I might find it a new home in a new editing system.  We will see if the budget can handle it.

I had to take off my cable management due to the card being longer then my last card.   You can see here.  I did trim the plastic on the cable management and now it fits just fine.   You don’t see much when you close the case see photo below.

C64 ftw in 2016!

c64 ready for 2016

After having bought the VG248QE model from Asus, I promised myself in 2015 that I would see if my original one owner c64 still worked… I have yet to power it up (I’ll be doing a video on it btw) but I just hope it still works after all these years.  I bought this back in 1988.  This isn’t the original monitor.  I had a monitor but got lost in a storage war!   This JVC unit actually has better resolution than the old one so it might be more gooder!    Now I just have to find out what the c64 flash drive thing is.  I got some advice from a twitter post I posted months ago.  I might have to go back and see what those links where!   Unless someone can help a brother out!
