AMD is launching a bevy of new processors today, targeted squarely at budget conscious consumers, looking to save a few bucks on the their next PC build. The new processors differ from previous offerings in their respective product families in terms of frequency, and of course their model names, but all are based on existing architectures and technology. We decided to take the 3.2GHz Phenom II X2 555 and 2.9GHz Athlon II X4 635 out for a spin and have their performance results posted on the pages ahead...

Plantronics Gamecom 777 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset  - Plantronics Gamecom 777 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset
Sat, December 25 2010 | 9:01AM | PermaLink Feedback?
The sound from the Gamecom 777 7.1 is very good, with crisp highs and good bass, and has a good energy to it. In stereo mode, the headphones sound absolutely great for music listening. Throwing the switch on the included USB soundcard adapter is when things start to go awry, as positional sound is not very convincing most of the time. Everything sounds more spatial, but just not very directional. Since all surround is interpolated from a 2-channel stereo source, then the effectiveness of the surround field can be very subjective. One advantage to these headphones is that they will work on just about any analog device, from iPods to CD players to PCs. The included USB-based surround sound card just isn't effective beyond making things sounding more ethereal. This headset retails for $99, but fortunately can be found online for as little as $59. At that price, it's definitely better than others in that price range.
