GlideTV Internet TV Navigator Review
     Sat, May 07 2011 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When building an HTPC, there are multiple angles to tackle - components, power consumption, software, and so forth. But what about peripherals designed to complement the HTPC you're building? Quality options are not as common as we'd like, but the GlideTV Navigator looks to be an exception, and one that won't drain your wallet.

Kingwin Lazer Platinum 550W Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, May 07 2011 | 8:14A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The thing that certainly stands out the most about Kingwin?s Lazer Platinum Power Supply is certainly the 80 Plus Platinum certification printed right on the front of the box. Platinum is the highest level of CSCI certification, which means, in a nutshell, that it one of the most efficient PSU?s on the market and will help your PC?s lifespan last longer with greatly reduced heat. Another great feature is the ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System, which will help keep maximum cooling performance while maintaining minimal fan noise by preventing fan rotation, unless the temperature reaches around 70 Degrees Celsius. The unit was also designed with high end GPU performance in mind with two 6 Pin and two 6+2 Pin PCI connections. Let?s take a look."""

Cooler Master Storm Spawn
     Fri, May 06 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming mice are quickly approaching the point in which a unique look is in itself a cliché. Visual appeal was once a new, exciting feature that attracted the attention of the demanding gaming crowd. It has become so standard today that sometimes functionality is sacrificed for a novelty design. The Spawn was on display for us this year at CES, a unique device that did, indeed, catch our eye. Does it fall victim to vanity, or prove its value in one of the harshest gaming genres?

Gigabyte and ECS to determine which vendor
     Fri, May 06 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I realize the irony here, but these reviews were in the can already - and feel free to note our editor's note at the beginning of the first page! The fireworks surrounding Intel's "Sandy Bridge" processors have brought mixed reactions about the new CPU's overclockability and graphics prowess. As usual, ASUS leads the way with eight P67 motherboards right out of the gate and we benchmark the P8P67 Pro and others from Gigabyte and ECS to determine which vendor was able to incorporate the right amount of features and performance options.

AMD Radeon HD 6790 1GB Review
     Fri, May 06 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent months, we've seen AMD and NVIDIA go back and forth with releases that are designed to one-up the other at the respective price-point, and with AMD's Radeon HD 6790, it doesn't look like this game will end anytime soon. Set to compete against the GeForce GTX 550 Ti, the HD 6790 launches with the same MSRP of $149.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Review

Posted by: STAFF
Catering to those who demand great GPU performance for a modest price, NVIDIA has launched its $130 GeForce GTX 550 Ti. Compared to the GTS 450 which it replaces, the GTX 550 Ti delivers faster performance, a beefier memory bus and what NVIDIA touts as being one of the best performance per watt ratios around.

BitFenix Shinobi Preview
     Fri, May 06 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We had a chance to take a look at the BitFenix Shinobi chassis pre-production sample, which is the first budget chassis from the upstart BitFenix. While the Colossus and Survivor managed to turn heads with unique looks, the Shinobi packs an understated design and a mean price/performance punch.
