Corsair Vengeance 1400 Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Dec 20 2013 | 10:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has been busy the past year improving its peripheral lineup. We previously reviewed both Vengeance mechanical keyboards and noticed that the biggest changes to those products over their predecessors were implemented from community response. We were impressed at how well Corsair was able to adapt to all the feedback and improve already likable keyboards. However, those aren`t the only gaming peripherals Corsair has worked on. We`re about to take a look at all of Corsair?s new headsets for 2013 in a series of reviews starting with the Vengeance 1400."

merits of SteamOS
     Fri, Dec 20 2013 | 9:03A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once you get there you are officially in the club of Linux gaming. The problem of course is a limited amount of games and in particular AAA titles. Hopes remain high amongst the gaming community that with the push to OpenGL on PS4 coupled with the SteamOS release more developers will create Linux-compatible games. That is definitely a long term goal though so don't install SteamOS today under the belief you can migrate here completely."

Patriot is known for their RAM and flash storage. Although, mobile accessories is a huge market and can’t be ignored.
