I had replaced the OEM Athlon IIx2 215 with a Phenom II b55 which the Bios reports as unknown AMD multicore. So some stuff asks the CPU and operates with a Phenom at the helm. and some stuff asks the BIOS and acts with a generic AMD multi core CPU. This NVidia chipset mainboard is way past End Of Life and will probably replace it with a cheap 970 board later this spring.
After several exchanges in which I uploaded a scan of my SDL, A bill, Answered stupid nosy assed questions. They merely repeated the previous and added to it until I had enough and got a bit snippy at which point it looked like it passed muster. At any rate they accepted access to master card. However, the first and only time I actualy deployed the service I had the intention of sending an indigent internet game chat friend twenty bucks for their birthday to help install a hard Ethernet line replacing an outranged wifi connection they are using. To my utter disgust, on initiating the transfer function in Gmail, it asked me to again upload photo id, utility bill, etc. etc. etc. So the next convenient thing, I just threw a 20 in an envelope and left it in the box for the postal pickup. Yes google I have one digit extended in your general direction.
1. Maxwell series of GPU. I am certain this is a proofing of Maxwell as long as the 20nm process is not quite ready for prime time.
2. The existing 28nm process provides the current Maxwell low voltage needs. this first Maxwell is DX11 just as Microsoft announces Direct X 12. I have suspicion the 20nm Maxwell was already designed and tooled with the DX12.
3. Onboard encoding is old hat by now. But, I saw a rumor that the 107 Maxwell video enconding circuitry seemed to know all about the Oct. 2013 IEEEE mpeg 5 operations.
4. Even though the reference cards did not reflect SLI for the 107 28nm GPU the 750 offers the biggest bang for the bucks this spring and possibly summer as the 20nm Maxwell is not likely to emerge until 4th quarter.
5. Kepler K1? I think this is some tech development that just is not going to happen. The findings and enhancements will most likely be incorporated with the 20nm Maxwell.
6. Samsung dumped a load of 20nm DDR3 into the process mill for "greener" less power hungry DRAM.
7. NVidia has announced EOL for 405 and older products.
8. When the 20nm Maxwell products hit the streets the pricing will probably be astronomical.
With those considerations I would say get a 28nm 750 now and be happy for a couple of years. There are no games out now that will choke on a cheap 60W GTX750 with its 28nm Maxwell GPU

This is my opinion based on specifications of the device and other persons testimonials. I have not deployed this device as SunValley asked a favor that I mention this product and did not send a sample along to set up and test for a product review.
If you travel, or minimally find your on the go. Your data system can easily fit in a bag. By Deploying the HT-TMo2 Wireless N150 You can pack your device array and connect them via WLAN on your own SSID. NAS 4TB NTSF or FAT. WLAN party? It is a router, but I did not read where anyone had used it for that purpose.
With your portable package connected together in a local network with the tripmate you need only connect the tripmate with either wifi or Ethernet and your travel package is again internet ready. No wasted time once you have a connection alternative.
I recently had a Samsung 64GB SDHC just stop working. I thank my lucky stars it waited a few days past a monthly dump to cloud storage. But, I did have 3 days of pending Email and 15 SMS with semi important information along with a video capture simply go poof.
for under $20 bucks you can save a lot more than $20.00 in repeated resetting every jump. And/or duplication of lost data that could be routinely synced to NAS drive through the USB port.
Or, simply jack it into the home portal via 10/100 Ethernet as service for a separate WLAN with the option to pack it all in a bag and jack in to Wi-Fi or Ethernet at the destination for a no hassle portable office. There are places that through oversight or design, supply 10/100 Ethernet but charge extra for Wi-Fi. Jack into the Ethernet and you have your own Wi-Fi.
Unlike other tripmate models this does not seem to have battery storage built into the 2.02in x 2.02in x 0.7in box. No great loss, humangus external batteries to supply 5V to USB devices and solar charging arrays are becoming common.
The Playstore has HooToo Tripmate software (Android 2.2 and later):
Some people liked the Tripmate App, some preferred to use the ES3 file manager. I have used the ES3 file manager across several devices (Tilt w/WM6, variety of Androids) and it is versatile and nimble in finding devices on my LAN.
Remembering a recent $1500.00 a day trip to the mountains of Montana, I spent hours waiting for the AT&T phone to slowly performed backup of video and photo captures of the scenic vistas and "adventures". Although a bit tiring, and the Saloon was refreshing, I could have squeezed in almost double the "adventures" or even repeated the best attractions if I had left one of these in the hotel to send the stored files across their slow Wi-Fi up to my various cloud hideyholes. Reflecting, I would have repeated the Zipline riding and added an old fashioned wagon ride. And probably fishing in the mountain lake. All time lost to charging and waiting to upload captured memories to a safe place while answering Boring Email.
