DDR3 dual channel memory kit
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With two 2GB RAM modules it gives you a total of 4GB of RAM which will be plenty for most people with a 64-bit operating system. With an aluminum heat sink over a copper core, this kit should appeal to overclockers as well as the average user."

Gigabyte P67A-UD4 motherboard review
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 1:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Powered by Intel's P67 chipset, we'll review that stunning looking P67A-UD4 Sandy bridge ready motherboard. A motherboard that is using a 12+2 phases design cooled by passive grey heatsinks. Of course features like SATA 6G and USB 3 are available as well, and guess what, the board supports SLI and Crossfire, albeit in a x8:x8 configuration.

Check out the coolness that is the UD4 and along with it its performance and features right here in this Guru3D article.

     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 1:13P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“They finally wore you down. Your friends' and co-workers' tales of the MacOS –an operating system with such elegance that anyone could master it, so safe that viruses barely exists, and with powers and abilities far beyond those of, well, Windows—have convinced you to switch. You've decided to "think different" and become a Mac user. Here are the things to consider and steps to take as you make a big change to your computing lifestyle.”

Sapphire Begins Making Pure Black P67 & X58 Intel Motherboards
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 12:58P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire has just announced that for the very first time it will introduce Intel based mainboards in the high-end sector. This might come as a shock to many, but back in June 2010 news broke that several key EVGA motherboard team members left and headed over to Sapphire. Read on to see the Sapphire Pure Black motherboard series that has boards for P67 and X58 chipsets!

Quote: "Sapphire will be bringing two motherboards to market. The first one will be the Pure Black X58 and the second will be the Pure Black P67 Hydra. We are going to start with the Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra motherboard as this is the motherboard for the new Intel Sandy Bridge processor that was announced last week. This board stands out from the crowd as it uses the Lucid Hydra chip to allow a mix of mutli-GPU graphics configurations to be used in its PCI-Express slots. As you can see from the image above the board has four PCIe x16 slots and two legacy PCI slots..."

Intel Core i7-800 Processor Series
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The two Core i7 series - for the sockets LGA1156 and LGA1366 - offer similar pricing and specifications, with the exception of Gulftown-based hexacore products which only exist in one series and stand out in both aspects. So it's very interesting to find out whether such "twofold existence" is actually justified."

AXP SuperNova 1000 Watt Power Supply
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Suffice to say, I think the power supply is possibly the most important component in today’s computers. It gives life to our pieced-together monsters, and then takes it away in an instant, if it isn’t up to the task. All the shear computational and graphic processing in the world sits unused without electricity. With reverence, I give you the AXP SuperNova , a monster 1000 watt power supply with enough connectors it looks like a boxy spaghetti monster. How well does it work? Let’s just say it’s worth the asking price. Ramen.

ASUS ROG Crosshair IV Extreme AM3 Socket Motherboard
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As great as those features may be, it is all the other things that ASUS has integrated into the new Crosshair that set the motherboard apart from the competition. First, it begins with the CrossLinx 3 which with the help of the Lucid HYDRALOGIX engine gives the end users the ability mix and match different graphic cards and allows them to run together, enhancing the gaming experience. Not only does this give nVidia fans the option of running SLI on an AMD chipset, but to have an Crossfire-SLi hybrid if you so choose. The above is enough to have many of us begging for more money in our allowance to go out and grab this motherboard. There is still so much more to the Crosshair IV Extreme, which we will be talking about in the review, and it is only going to add to your desire to own this board.

CyberPower Gamer Ultra 2098 Budget Gaming PC Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 9:34A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CyberPower really did do a great job with the Gamer Ultra 2098! The part selection and the fit and finish of the components was superb for a budget gaming PC. For being just $574.98 we figured that CyberPower might cut some corners on wire management or something like that, but they really did a nice job for this build. The parts that CyberPower used on the Gamer Ultra 2098 worked well together and we had no major issues with any of the hardware during our testing. For a budget AMD powered gaming PC we wouldn`t change anything with this system..."

PowerColor Radeon 6850 PCS+ review
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor is as always never late to arrive at the party, they submitted a Radeon HD 6850 for a test here at Guru3D.com and as such we'd be more than happy to bring you a full review on one of their newest products today, the PCS+ version of the Radeon HD 6850 that comes pre-overclocked. PowerColor clocks it at towards 820 MHz for you, and if you feel a little brave then apply some tweaks yourself as that will get you over 900 MHz quite easily. The memory as well, standard you'll need to work with a 4000 MHz (effective data rate) memory clock frequency PowerColor takes that to 4400 MHz on this product. And sure, there as well is some room left to fool around with tweaking wise.

Asus O!Play HD2 HD Media Player Review
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 9:02A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Why would you watch your favorite videos on your computer monitor when you can get a full 5.1 surround sound HDTV experience in your living room? This is partly why the whole idea of a media player has really caught on in recent years. Many folks don’t want to bother with the time, complexity and expense of a HTPC, but these little media-playing set top boxes are so convenient and inexpensive. One of the latest to join the pack is the Asus O! Play HD2 HD media player. This is far from a virgin effort on the part of Asus to enter this market, so it comes with some definite improvements over its predecessors. Is this enough to warrant an upgrade?

Kingston HyperX H2O 6GB 2000MHz DDR3 Triple Channel Memor
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remember when 2GB memory kits were considered the optimal choice for any dual channel computer? Now, thanks to 64-bit operating systems, 4GB dual channel and 6GB triple channel memory kits are the ideal minimum configuration. Designing more attractive memory modules help motivate consumers and enthusiasts to pick them over others. The HyperX team at Kingston have taken another bold step forward by introducing the HyperX H2O series dual and triple channel memory kits. Is the H2O cool, or does it just look cool?
