09:09 Good, Better, Best GPU for Gaming!
Black Friday is approaching, so we’re talking GPUs from $100 budget 1080p gaming to I HAVE MULTIPLE 4K MONITORS AND ALL THE MONEY. PCper’s Ryan Shrout joins us with the scoop on how to pick between Nvidia’s GTX 1050 and 1050Ti and AMD’s Radeon RX 460, the GTX 1060 and Radeon RX 470, and, at the high end, Nvidia’s GTX 1070 and 1080!

We review Logitech’s G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset and Sennheiser’s PC 373D open gaming headset with 7.1 Dolby Surround. (Is Dolby Headphone as good as speakers?) Then talk about making your own headset with the $8 Zalman ZM-Mic1 or $30 V-MODA’s BoomPro mics!
