Here is part 2: The program featured in this post is called defraggler and like its name suggests it de-fragments your harddrive. Windows already has a built in defragmentation tool but its not a very effective one. This program will organize the files on your harddrive so that when you access them next they will load quicker because the harddrive head does not have to seek as much.

This program is made by the same people as CCleaner so its a quality program!
Really easy program just click defrag and do a boot time defrag!

We all know computer get slow over time and in order to get a PC running like it was new again only require a few programs that do all the work for you! Best buy / office depot will do the same thing if you bring your computer in saying its getting slow so this should help out computer performance quite a bit!
Ok so first download a program called Ccleaner- http://tinyurl.com/blc5uts

AMD finally releases their brand new 7970 graphics card boasting a brand new architecture and a 28nm design. This will not only lower wattage but also make this card massively over-clockabale! This new card will help out not only distributed computing groups but gamers all around because of its blazing performance (Most powerful single gpu card). I know I wont be getting this card because of its $450 price tag but the lower models are also 28nm so a great budget card is most likely going to be the 7870. Currently I own the 6870 and it's been working great so far but its always nice to upgrade.
Well have to see how Nvidia's 680 does but that's still months away.

Refresh rate- 120hz does help a little but anything more is completely useless especially since almost all HD Boxes and gaming consoles only output at 60hz.
Response time- This used to be a huge deal when LCDs first came out and the response time was 15-25ms but now most modern PC monitors range from 1-8ms. Most IPS professional displays will have a higher response time but their image quality is much better.
Dynamic contrast- Dont even look at this spec its an utterly useless measurement of how much the display can dim its back light in dark scenes. I own two monitors a Samsung XL-2370 and a Dell U2311h the dell only has a 10k:1 contrast while the samsung has 5Million:1 and since the dell is an IPS panel display it has a much better image quality and produces much better darks.

With USB 3.0 finding its way into everyday devices several companies are now offering USB 3.0 flash drives which are great in general for storing files but with USB 3.0 now you can stream HD movies right off your flash drive without having to put it on your Harddrive first.

A fairly unknown/ uncommon hobby is the Hobby grade Radio controlled cars. The vehicle shown in the picture comes out of the box ready to go 100+ MPH or 160KMH. Of course things like this never come cheap, you can get your hands on one of these for just around $600 USD
Happy holidays and thank you for following!
