News: Asus K53E dual-core Sandy Bridge notebook
     Thu, Mar 31 2011 | 3:55A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve already put a quad-core Sandy Bridge notebook through the paces but how does a system with a dual-core CPU based on the same architecture perform? Does it give previous-gen Core 2010 chips a run for their money and perhaps more importantly does it offer better battery life?"

ASUS Radeon HD 6950 2GB DirectCU II Overclocked Video Card Review
     Wed, Mar 30 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It's been so long since I've looked at an ASUS video card, so long that I honestly couldn't remember the last time I saw one. I can tell you, though, it was in the day where the TOP series reigned supreme. So what's happening these days with ASUS in the video card market? Well, we haven't paid too much attention to be honest, but it's time to see what this DirectCU II series offers us. What we'll do firstly is check out the package of the card to see what's going on. Once that's done we'll check out the card and the specifications. Carrying only a mild overclock, we decided to just crank up the speed through overdrive and we'll talk about that more in the specifications. Once all that's done, it's time to get into the fun stuff, the performance. First, though, let's check out the package."

Lite-On eNAU608 External Slim USB DVD/CD Writer Review
     Wed, Mar 30 2011 | 12:01P | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“External DVD/CD drives are nothing new, but over the past year they have been becoming a little more popular. This is probably because of the increased sales in netbooks and slim laptops. I do prefer a small, slim notebook to a larger one and honestly I rarely use an optical drive. But there are some things you just need an optical drive for, like OS installs and making audio CD’s. Lite-On has sent us a very slim 8x USB DVD/CD writer to check out, the eNAU608. Let’s take a look and see if it is the perfect drive for your netbook or slim laptop."

LG Flatron E2050 20-inch LED Widescreen LCD Monitor Review
     Wed, Mar 30 2011 | 12:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a great LCD makes your computer experience even better, no one wants to be using an old washed out LCD. LG is a name you may not think of when talking about LCD monitors, but after reading this review you just might. LG’s flagship LED model series, the E50 is just .69 inches thick, and boasts mega ratio contrast technology, resulting in an extremely clear and natural picture quality built into the ultra slim and stylish design. The series is comprised of 3 different models, today we will be taking a look at the E2050 20-inch model. Geeks.com was nice enough to send us the E2050 20-inc h LED Widescreen LCD Monitor to review. Geeks.com is a great place to find LCD Computer Monitors."

Lite-On eNAU608 Slim External DVD/CD Writer
     Tue, Mar 29 2011 | 4:02P | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, I’m very pleased with the eNAU608. With netbooks not coming equipped with optical drives by default the eNAU608 provides a great alternative. It is slim and easy to carry around and gives you reasonable performance. It is not nearly the fastest or most advanced drive out on the market, but if you don’t need Blu-Ray than this has it all.

Killzone 3 PlayStation 3 Review
     Tue, Mar 29 2011 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Killzone as a series has had a really interesting time of it. Debuting on the PlayStation 2 as Sony Computer Entertainments answer to the mega blockbluster Halo: Combat Evoled on Xbox, it was also the show pony for the PlayStation 3 during its unveiling at E3 2005. However, this is where the series started to go off the rails with gamers worldwide calling out the demonstration presented as most likely impossible. And so it was proved. Killzone 2 launched on the PlayStation 3 to much fanfare, but it didn’t live up to the hype. Killzone 3 is the third attempt from Guerrilla Games and whilst they got a whole lot right this time around, they also got many things wrong. Like the first two games, Killzone 3 is a first person shooter set in a sci-fi world. However, where many first person shooters focus on action, Killzone 3 focuses on the stories behind the war and the characters themselves; trying to build a connection between the player and the game. However, in many aspects it fails. The atrocity committed at the end of Killzone 2 is basically ignored despite the game being picked up directly after the end of Killzone 2, and in many ways this is puzzling."

GSKill RipjawsX PC3 17000 CL9 Memory Review
     Tue, Mar 29 2011 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a general rule of thumb you will see a significant performance increase whenever you can run your memory clock above the default 13.33x multiplier setting and that is what you will get from these modules. While the F3-17000CL9D RipjawsX modules might not have the best timings their overall performance is perfect for gaming and general purpose computing

Inno3D GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC
     Tue, Mar 29 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As is so often the case with Inno3D products the availability of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC is poor, which is a shame because this is a very good graphics card. Although we often only saw a performance increase of 2-3fps, the upgraded cooler generated very little noise while managing to keep the GTX 560 Ti OC well within acceptable temperate ranges when under load.

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.
