Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Sapphire HD 5570 1 GB - Sapphire HD 5570 1 GB

For many people $200 USD is just too much for a graphics card, but they still want to be able to play games. While mid range cards don't have the performance to max out all of the latest games, they can at least play them and deliver that playability at a low price point. Today we have the latest addition to ATI's lineup, the HD 5570. This card aims to replace the aging HD 4670. Many owners of a 4670 will praise its amazing price to performance ratio. These same owneres will no doubt pick up a 5570, or maybe take a step up to the 5600 series. However if you are not able to afford a 5600 series card, or are planning a lower power PC then the 5500 series is an amazing option. The 5500 series combines all of the features of its big brothers incldueing its amazing power useage. When I say the 5500 series uses almost no power, I mean it uses almost no power (under 45 watts). This card is a great option for a HTPC, or budget gameing machine, but lets take a closer look at the card!

ECS Elitegroup P55H-AK LGA1156 ATX Motherboard Review   - ECS Elitegroup P55H-AK LGA1156 ATX Motherboard Review

One of the things that arguably penalizes the current P55A/H55 budget and mainstream motherboards is the sharing of the system bus that connects the PCI Express, USB 3.0, and SATA3 devices. So basically, the more video cards and devices you add to the bus the more each devices’ transfer rates take a performance hit. But, not too many folks realistically run dual graphics on those platforms nor often run both USB 3.0 and SATA3 devices simultaneously. However, some folks really are power users and really do need a solution like the ECS EliteGroup P55H-AK Motherboard to help open up all those lanes for unhindered performance. Let me show what we mean.
