Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Sapphire XFX Gigabyte Radeon HD 5850 Roundup Review - Sapphire XFX Gigabyte Radeon HD 5850 Roundup Review

ATI has two products on their list which are game-changing in the fact that they will likely be the only DirectX 11 supporting video cards on the market until 2010 when the consumer version of the Fermi architecture announced by NVIDIA yesterday will be released. Until then, they have the highest performing chip in the HD 5870 and a very high performing chip in the form of the HD 5850 which costs $120 less than the HD 5870. XFX’s card is a reference design with the same performance and clock speeds of the other reference cards but you get their wonderful support and a copy of Dirt 2 when it is released. If performance in BattleForge is any indication this card will run DirectX 11 games just fine and if you really want the ultimate in performance buy two of these cards and Crossfire them to get higher performance than a single GTX295.
