Nvidia Leaves The Discrete Path
Nvidia PR manager Bryan Del Rizzo has given word that the recently released 790i could be Nvidia's last discrete chipset, at least for a while anyways.  Integrated graphics chipsets utilizing the mGPU and HybridPower operation will now become the norm for them, starting with the nForce 700-series for the AMD platform.  This is not to say there will be no more high-end chipsets coming from Nvidia.
"For example, the nForce 780a is a high-end motherboard with an integrated [graphics] core," Del Rizzo said.
Integrated graphics chipsets have always been looked down upon by enthusiasts, seen as wasteful and unnecessary, so you have to wonder how wise this decision was.  Will this move cause enthusiasts to steer clear from Nvidia motherboards in the future?

Loving the third one.

My camera probably hasn't seen default exposure in a while.

I mainly use it to take fire pics which look much better with longer times.
