He's heading to Sonos

Microsoft is saying goodbye to yet another executive.

According to Xbox Wire, Chief Product Officer of Xbox Marc Whitten is leaving the company after joining the Xbox team in 2000. He's reportedly moving on to become Chief Product Officer of Sonos.

“I have had the extreme pleasure over the last 14 years to work on the greatest product with the greatest team and for the greatest community,” said Whitten. “Xbox is so special because of the amazing team I’ve had the opportunity to work with and because our fans are the most incredible fans on the planet. It has been the highlight of my career to work on a product so loved. It’s incredibly tough to leave but I am confident the best days are ahead for Xbox fans, in the capable hands of a very talented team.”

Whitten's team will now report to Terry Myerson, executive vice president responsible for the teams that build software platforms and experiences for Windows, Windows Phone and Xbox. 
 
Back in January, Corporate VP of Microsoft’s Media and Entertainment Group Blair Westlake resigned after a decade spent with the company. He reportedly left because of the latest restructuring efforts.
 
Many other executives outside of Xbox have resigned or have been reassigned new roles in recent months. Just recently, Tony Bates and Tami Reller left Microsoft. Bates was the former Skype CEO in charge of Microsoft's business development and Reller was the co-head of Microsoft's Windows unit.

Maybe not. I think your build is already CPU limited as-is. Throwing hotter video cards in it probably wouldn't improve things much if at all.
