Your comment surprised me a bit. I mean, the name of the site defines our specific angle on IT gear, even though our perspective forces us to look at almost every aspect of it. Most sample suppliers are well aware of our focus, and if they send products that don't meet our criteria, they know what ...

I also enjoyed the wit and humor in the article I think this whole site has the "i'm smarter than you" vibe, you piss on anything that isn't "silent." (which is great imo) Previous reviews have that sort of style too. I look foward to the reviews because of that. Most hardware reviews are a bit blan...

I find it hard that anyone would reach 500W even with quite heavy OC. 1000W? I dare anyone to show me a system that will overload a PSU that powerful! It would be rather interesting. it's about marketing as well as e-penis nvidia lists all these 750-1000w power supplies that are certified for SLI h...

I would go with the GTS 640MB. The 320 is woefully in inadequate at any resolution above 1280*1024. Check out www.tomshardware.com for an article about the 320mb what? The card could not handle the hardest resolutions and is weak at resolutions above 1600x1200 with the image quality settings turned...

I must note this is my first build. I was readin up on some motherboard reviews for the p965 chipset and it appeared that asus deluxe wifi version was pretty good but it also allowed you to connect 5 fans to it. I think abit also allows you to plug 4-5 fans into it. Is it easier set up your fans wit...

I really enjoyed this article. So much so, that I plan to "borrow" this build to replace my father's aging PIII machine. He didn't really give me a budget, but I think he'd settle for one under $2,000, including a monitor. He just wants me to convince him that the parts i'm choosing are picked out w...
