Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Sapphire TOXIC HD5850 2GB DDR5 Video Card Review - Sapphire TOXIC HD5850 2GB DDR5 Video Card Review
Thu, April 01 2010 | 4:01PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Sapphire has taken their Toxic HD 5850 and added 1GB of memory to it. As such the performance of the card is predictable as it is essentially the same card as the other Toxic HD 5850 with more memory. The card performs as expected from a HD 5850 chip with excellent gaming performance throughout the games I tried it on. 2GB of memory makes a difference when high resolution AA and AF is enabled and in the intense DirectX 11 games that do a lot of special effects. Sapphire does the job and does it well with a 765MHz/1125MHz core/memory speed. 2GB of memory is interesting but not a game-changer in terms of the new card..

Understanding the 80 Plus Certification - Understanding the 80 Plus Certification
Mon, December 13 2010 | 12:02PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Efficiency is traditionally an overlooked power supply specification. It says how much power is being wasted while you are using your PC. Problem is that you are paying for this wasted power. The 80 Plus certification was created to allow consumers to know which power supplies are the most efficient ones and, as the name implies, guarantees that the power supply is able to present efficiency of 80%. With more and more manufacturers trying to design power supplies with efficiency well above 80%, they decided to create three new certification categories: Gold, Silver and Bronze. Learn what they really mean."
