     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With all of the solid state hard drives that came out this year it seems like traditional hard drives sort of took a back seat, unless you were looking to get a large capacity drive. One thing that many people may have overlooked was the availability of SATA 6GB/s drives. A SATA 6GB/s drive has double the transfer rate (6GB/s compared to 3GB/s) as the SATA II drive that is currently in your system. Today we will be taking a look at the Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA 6GB/s Hard Drive and see how it compares to some other SATA drives. Let’s check it out!"

Western Digital AV-GP 2 TB Hard Disk Drive Review
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years there has always been one constant when it comes to digital media consumption--hard drives, an essential necessity in the world of digital entertainment. If it wasn’t for a hard drive we would not have digital video recorders, computers and in our niche of the world, home theater computers. It seems like yesterday when I got my first computer which came with a whopping 40MB hard drive that was three times the size of todays standard hard drives. My how the times have changed. Now my HTPC runs 4 terabytes (TB) of storage space for recording TV shows and my WHS machine has over 10TB of storage. In the latest of a long line of hard drives from Western Digital comes their AV-GP line of hard drives. Courtesy of HDStor, Inc the 2TB AV-GP is an audio-video optimized version of their WD Caviar Green hard disk drive line. With specialized firmware this drive is optimized for recording and storing audio and video. This review will dive into just how well this hard drive performs, and if it does what it says it will do.

AMD Radeon HD 6950 & 6970 CrossFire Video Card Reviews
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We knew coming into this review that AMD's Radeon HD 6970 video card wouldn't be able to beat out the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 and we know that will upset many of the AMD fans that have been waiting for this card. AMD told us that NVIDIA would have them beat when it comes to single card performance, but that they would have a much better price point. At $369 the AMD Radeon HD 6970 is priced to compete with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 and we have to say the two cards traded blows. In the 11 benchmarks that we ran the GeForce GTX 570 won six and the Radeon HD 6970 won five of them. As you can see these two cards are very close in terms of gaming performance and even the price tag is pretty close..."

Xigmatek Asgard II Computer Case Review

"Xigmatek's Asgard II is a real gem, as budget cases go. For as little as thirty bucks you get a distinctive look, excellent tool-free solutions and a rich feature set worthy of a case that is twice the price. The cooling performance isn't bad either, and the case responds well to additional case fans, at least up front."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 DirectX 11 GPU Review
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of the arrival of their flagship GeForce GTX 580, NVIDIA is launching another new graphics card today, based on the GF110 GPU. As we’ve come to expect from NVIDIA, and AMD for that matter, when a new GPU arrives, derivatives based on pared down version of the chip typically get introduced at some point, but with somewhat lower specifications. Such is the case with the GeForce GTX 570 we’ll be showing you here today. It’s almost funny to say “somewhat lower specifications”, however, because the GeForce GTX 570 is one heck of a powerful graphics card, as you’ll see. We’ve got the full specifications outlined, followed by a complete set of performance numbers using both a reference card and factory overclocked model from EVGA—the GeForce GTX 570 SuperClocked Edition...

Zowie Celeritas mechanical switch gaming keyboard
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 11:35A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As the gaming industry has evolved, peripherals have been developed alongside it. Interestingly, as time has gone on there's been a bit of seperation between gamers and the hardware that they have available to them. While there are keyboards and mice out there that are festooned with lights, macro keys and outlandish styling, there's another branch that ephasises something different. This second way of doing things is a little more streamlined. It focuses on speed, it's serious and often expensive. More and more pro-gamers are now heading in this direction and the product we're looking at today is no different. Lauded by some gamers that most people will never have heard of, the Zowie Celeritas comes with mechanical switches, a sleek black paint job and lots of internal cleverness to have you gaming at your best. Let's see how it compares to the boards we've reviewed in the past. "

Galaxis Atlus Mid-Tower Case
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 11:34A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Atlus case by Galaxis is a mid-tower offering supporting standard ATX mainboards, four external 5.25" drive bays and one external 3.5" bay. It has a large side intake fan, blue LED lighting and a top control panel. We have seen a variety of mid-tower offerings lately and the feature set from the outside looks typical, though with the USB and audio ports on the top I would expect more of a floor placement. Follow along as we take a closer look. "
