InWin Buc 101 Mid Tower Computer Chassis @ TechwareLabs
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:58P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the market for DIY computer parts expands it`s becoming harder and harder to find a quality chassis for less than $100. Nearly all ATX cases have risen above the $100 mark but usually are worth the coin considering fans, space, features etc."

Installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview In A VirtualBox Virtual Machine
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:55P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new virtual machine is all ready to use and powered by Windows 8. Depending on your hardware and how much memory and processing power you were able to allocate, the experience may nor many not be the smoothest. Nevertheless, it should give you a good idea of what the OS looks like and how it operates. Then, using that information, if you think the new beta operating system is for you, you can start planning a bare metal install on some physical hardware."

How to Buy an External Hard Drive @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:52P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the increasing amount of data storage our lives require these days, it makes sense to invest in an external hard drive. External hard drives promise almost unlimited storage: For under $100, you can add a terabyte of data to your PC or Mac, portable or desktop. That`s enough for over 750,000 MP3s or photos, or over 230 DVD-sized movies. We tell you what to consider when choosing the right one for you."

Dell XPS 13 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:45P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 13 is a 13-inch ultrabook that is extremely good-looking and sturdy. While it is entering both a crowded and emerging category of computers, it does a lot of set itself apart from the rest of the pack. It has an extremely thin footprint, a glass-covered screen and an SSD hard drive."

AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition & 7850 Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:36P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition ($349) performed better than the AMD Radeon HD 6970 ($364.09) and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 ($329.99) and in some cases it was trading blows with the mighty GeForce GTX 580 ($449.99). When this card becomes available on March 19th, 2012 we expect that pricing on other cards on the market will be adjusted. This card was very powerful and in some benchmarks and games we found it being only slightly slower than a stock Radeon HD 7950 3GB card that costs nearly $100 more. The AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition card is solid and ideal for those running..."

AMD Radeon HD 7870 and Radeon HD 7850 Graphics Cards Launch Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD Radeon HD 7870 and Radeon HD 7850 Graphics Cards Launch Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today AMD launch the 7800 series and allow us to look at their reference cards with partner availability to come later (around March 19th). With the same features as the 7900 series yet a significantly lower price today we find how well they compete with the 7950 and 6870 while looking in detail at the comparison with NVIDIAs GTX 560 Ti and GTX 570."

AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB Reference Video Card Review
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:29P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve mentioned a lot about our thoughts on the HD 7700 series as a whole along with the general thought process on each model and like we`ve said every time, while AMD has the HD 6800 series at a similar price point, the HD 7700 series continues to lose its shine as it sits slower. The HD 7800 series and HD 7900 series on the other hand don`t have any competition within their own camp giving us a price point from AMD that isn`t offered at the moment. So far we`ve seen the HD 7850 hits that $249 price tag perfectly. Now we want to find out if the extra $100 associated with the HD 7870 is worth the jump up."

AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB and HD 7850 2GB Pitcairn Review
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:26P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where the Radeon HD 7900 cards were impressive from a pure performance stand point and the Radeon HD 7700 cards brought new features and performance per watt to the sub $200 market, the HD 7800 cards are really the ones we think warrant the most attention from gamers. For $250, the Radeon HD 7850 offers a significantly better gaming experience than the GTX 560 Ti from NVIDIA while offering enough overclocking headroom to reach towards the GTX 570."

AMD Radeon HD 7870 & HD 7850 Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:23P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With today?s release of the HD 7870 and HD 7850, AMD has achieved their goal of having a complete top to bottom desktop graphics card lineup based upon the new GCN architecture. These two new entries into the lineup are meant to effectively bridge the gap between the high end and entry level markets. With of $349 and $249 respectively, they could be exactly what gamers have been waiting for. * *"

AMD Radeon HD 7850 Video Card Review Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Radeon HD 7850 is a mid-range video card based on the latest GPU architecture from AMD, dubbed Graphics Core Next or simply GCN, which supports the new PCI Express 3.0 connection and the latest DirectX version (11.1). Let`s compare it to its main competitor, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti."

AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB Reference Video Card Review
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the HD 7700 series left us feeling overall pretty flat, the same can`t be said for AMD`s new HD 7900 series which offered us awesome performance. Along with strong numbers, though, we saw the new 28nm based cards run cooler, quieter and draw less power at both idle and load - they impressed us a lot. We`ve got our fingers crossed that the HD 7800 series sits more in line with the HD 7900 series than it does the HD 7700 series. Considering AMD also have no older previous generation video cards at the $249 price point for the HD 7850 and $349 price point for the HD 7870, we`re already off to a better start."

Today AMD released their new Radeon HD 7800 Series, which is based on their new 28 nm Pitcairn graphics processor. The HD 7850 and HD 7870 offer a significant performance increase over the previous generation - up to 40% faster in our testing. Power consumption is also at a new record low, putting these cards in the leading performance per Watt spot."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
