Have you ever seen the movie “God Bless America”? Not the one you saw in grade school history class, the one released by Darko Productions in 2011. If you haven’t, you should. There was a good reason it got rave reviews. I’m not going to spoil much, but you know from any synopsis that it involves two people killing what they consider America’s socially ugliest people. They are actually socially conscious, and actually list R. Kelly as a target due to his fascination with underage girls. Of course, I’d do him just for the “music” (cough, cough) end of it. They actually spew random killing ideas from seemingly nowhere, like “NASCAR fans and people who high five…..or just jocks in general”. Trust me, at one time or another, you have thought about killing every single person who dies in this film.
Interestingly, the film begins with the main character fantasizing about killing his horrible neighbors, not actually killing them. I was left to think that a turnaround of making a video game based on this movie would be pretty awesome. Yes, I am implying that most movies based on video games are pretty bad…..”Resident Evil” and “Silent Hill” aside, of course. With as realistic as games are becoming, it could be a really great venting of steam (no pun intended….and online gaming would be the first thing I would kill if it were a character). With game crossovers, you could actually kill the horrible contestant on the “American Idol” game. Either way, gaming is getting much more realistic and, fortunately, GPUs are keeping up with the task of reproducing them. Steam, Origin and the lot still need to go in favor of a return to disks, but the rest of the gaming world is evolving.
Priced right in the heart of mainstream gaming, the EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked looks to create a new standard in what you can expect from the class. Equipped with the latest nVidia GK106 GPU, the EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked comes out of the box with an impressive OC to 1046 MHz on the base clock and 1111 MHz on the boost clock. The EVGA GTX 660 SC retains many of the features we have seen in nVidia’s higher end cards, including the dynamic boost clock which will automatically run the GPU at higher speeds when power and temperature headroom allow. There are 960 CUDA cores onboard, along with 2GB of GDDR5 memory with an effective 6008 MHz clock speed and 192-bit interface. The EVGA GTX 660 SC supports the PCIe 3.0 bus interface for increased speeds, and is backwards compatible to PCIe 2.0. With two DVI, one HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2, the GTX 660 supports four concurrent displays. The GTX 660 SC comes backed by EVGA’s 3-year warranty, which can be extended upon registration, as well as eligibility in EVGA’s Step-Up Program.
