Asus unwittingly pushed out malware to 57,000 PCs, security firm says

When it comes to PCs, true security is a myth.

This $189.99 AMD Radeon RX 580 bundle deal is an endearing invitation to Capcom's renaissance

Originally priced at $499, the card—made by third-party AIB XFX—is now $189.99. Though you can find it, and other takes on the RX 580, elsewhere for as low as $170, the XFX GTS XXX Edition RX 580 from Walmart is special, as it comes with your choice of two free game vouchers as an added bonus.

If you’ve got the money to spare, this is a sure-fire ticket to great audio.
