Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6670 @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 9:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6670. This is, among other things a low-profile graphics card capable of being installed in an HTPC with half-height PCI brackets. Coming in at just under $90, this card is inexpensive in terms of the graphics world. I personally would expect to be able to play dated, and non-graphic intensive games with ease, let`s see if the HD 6670 can deliver - but first, lets get Sapphire`s take."

Posted by: STAFF
The 500R has support for USB 3.0 and 2.5? SSDs is built-in, while thumb screws on the side panels and tool-free drive installation should mean quick and easy installation of your hardware.

TurboTax Premier Online (2011) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 9:33A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?As much as personal tax preparation software and Web sites have evolved over the last 20-plus years, they still can`t anticipate every possible user question or accommodate every imaginable tax scenario. But Intuit`s TurboTax family of sites comes closer than anyone. The big takeaway this year is not what`s in TurboTax. It`s where it`s available: everywhere.?"

Ultrabooks: Intel Knows Whats Good For You
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 9:33A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel?s decision to back the ultrabook is a strange one. It?s odd that Intel has decided to take a leading role in the basic design of consumer laptops. It?s weird that the design the company has outlined creates a new class of computers that appear inspired by one of Intel?s customers, Apple. And it?s unusual for Intel to almost exclusively push products that are not its quickest, but rather its most power efficient."

[DreamWare Computers] OCZ Agility 3 2.5 SSD
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 9:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last year I`ve had the opportunity to review both ends of OCZ`s solid state drive lineup. I`ve tested the entry level Onyx drive and a couple drives from the high end Vertex series. These drives were at opposite ends of the spectrum when it came to performance - so what lies between? OCZ has a number of `mainstream` solid state drives on the market - these are drives with a healthy balance of price to performance. One series of mainstream drives is the Agility 3. The Agility 3 is middle of the line for OCZ`s SATAIII lineup - it offers performance that`s a step down from the Vertex 3 reviewed late last year, but a price that will keep some money in your pocket."

QPAD MK-85 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
QPAD's previous mechanical gaming keyboard was very impressive but QPAD have not sat back to bask in the glory of the MK-80. Instead they have recently introduced the MK-85 Pro gaming keyboard; a top of the line product that on paper at least features everything you could want from a gaming keyboard.

ASUS P9X79 Motherboard Roundup @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“ASUS is known for producing a wide range of motherboards to suit just about any preference, need, or budget, and today we have three motherboards from their new X79 lineup for review. Each of these boards share many similarities but also some distinct differences, and rather than splitting them up into separate reviews, we've decided to compile them all into one big roundup. It's a one-stop shop for some of the high-end ASUS X79 motherboards. “

SSD NEWS: Silicon Power Velox V30 SATA 3 240GB SSD Review @ The SSD Review
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 8:09A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A short time ago we reviewed the Silicon Power Velox V20 120GB SSD which just so happened to be one of the few SATA 2 drives that we had seen in 2011; the world has gone SATA 3. To say the least, it was rather unique as it was the first to contain Hynix NAND flash memory that we had reviewed. Silicon Power has since sent us their next level in performance, the Velox V30 SATA 3 `SandForce driven` 240GB SSD, requesting our evaluation and review. How could we resist?"

Galaxy GT 520 MDT Review
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 4:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The real benefit of this card from Galaxy is the ability to use up to four 1080p DVI monitors. This feat was not possible with run-of-the-mill Fermi based video cards since they are limited to two monitors from one card. Using Galaxy`s MDT EZY software allows the end user to configure the displays in either split mode where each display has a desktop interface or merged mode where the display is spanned across multiple screens. The software is used in combination with the resolution settings in the operating system to get the optimal resolution for each display. The software is easy to use with little resource overhead. A gaming card it is not, but as a unique addition to the GT 520 line up, the GT 520 MDT from Galaxy offers a low-cost way to create a lot of desktop real estate."

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.
