be quiet! TFX Power 2 300W Gold review
     Mon, Jul 28 2014 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We don’t often need a 1500 watt power supply – actually most of our systems are probably consuming less than 300 watts under load. What if you are building a new mini or media system into a tiny, space restricted chassis and need some quality juice to power it? Today we look at something totally different from be quiet! – the TFX Power 2 300W power supply, designed for systems with low installation depth.

     Mon, Jul 28 2014 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comparisons of two mid-range (roughly) graphics cards with one high-end VGA are almost always good for some really interesting results. Today we're having a look at what two AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics cards can do against one Radeon R9 290. If you keep in mind, that the R9 290 is more expensive than two R9 270 cards then things could be quite interesting.

SB Inferno Gaming Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Jul 28 2014 | 10:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few years ago, we used to see the fatal1ty headsets all over the place at events. They were without a doubt the best low budget gaming headset on the market. They performed well and took a beating without falling apart. Even now, it is still one of the highest rated headsets on Newegg. Here we are seven years later and Creative is introducing the SB Inferno, the spiritual successor to the Fatal1ty Gaming Headset. Its amazing how much has changed in seven years, I cant wait to see how the SB Inferno compares to todays latest and greatest in gaming audio."

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with Tegra K1 and SHIELD Controller
     Mon, Jul 28 2014 | 6:07A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Though this is just a preview and announcement, the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet creates an interesting debate. Is there a market for a gaming specific tablet? NVIDIA sure thinks that is the case and is betting yet another generation of Tegra SoC on it. Even though the Tegra 4 based SHIELD portable was a unique and interesting product, it`s financial status isn`t where it needs to be. My experiences at Quakecon this past weekend tell me that gamers actually do like what SHIELD offers but they need to see it and use before they can be convinced."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
