    Anything significant in new Win 8 update?

    I hadn't opened my Win 8 laptop in a few weeks, and had over 20 or so updates to install and noticed one ws a fairly large update, non-security related update to Win 8. Anything significant in it?

    The best security is to keep the laptop off.

    If it's a non security large update, it can be a compatibility or stability one: good to install.

    Mine is also offline... but I'll install all updates when i get the chance. Up until now, no hangs or black screen loops or whatever people encounter sometimes. For that just make sure you have the latest drivers installed.

DWM causing a significant performance drop in games.

Radeon HD7950 x PCI-Ex 1.1 Slot - Significant Bottleneck ?
Some time ago I bought an ATi Radeon HD7950 3GB 384-Bit for my quite old system. I did have a huge performance gain moving from HD6870 to HD7950, but I'm not sure how far the board interface may be bottlenecking my card. My mobo has 2 PCI-Ex x16 v1.1 slots, what means that each slot operates @...
