MSI 880GMA-E45 motherboard
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The usability of this motherboard is indisputable and it's bound to satisfy the needs of a large number of home users, including those who are planning an overclock of a few hundred MHz. Therefore, when assembling a modern AMD PC for a reasonable amount of money, make sure you include it into your “top picks” list.

Cooler Master Storm Inferno gaming mouse
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 12:00P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has entered the gaming mice market last year, perhaps in a shy way, but definitely unexpectedly. After a very successful debut model, they've decided to stick to the route, and a year later, we've got the successor, named Inferno. At first glance, it seems that all troubles that plagued the first iteration (if any) have been rectified, giving us a seemingly fantastic mouse…

Maingear 13.3" Clutch 13 Ultraportable Notebook Review
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Maingear is a custom PC builder that's been making some noise lately, and for good reason. The competition is intense in this space, with a number of companies (CyberPower, Maingear, Falcon Northwest, Digital Storm, Origin, etc.) elbowing each other in order to grab the hard-earned dollars of those in need of a new machine. Maingear, like the others mentioned here, has done an excellent job staying on the cutting edge, and making sure that their lineup is full of new components just as soon as they hit the market.

Back in October, Maingear revealed two notebooks in a new series: Clutch. Today, we're taking a closer look at the smaller of the two, the 13.3" Clutch 13...

Driver Sweeper may prevent you from installing service packs
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 4:02P | Tips | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you're using Driver Sweeper to clean up drivers on Windows 7, be aware that Driver Sweeper may prevent you from installing service packs. Driver Sweeper wipes Windows 7's built-in display drivers, which are considered as "system files". Service pack 1 and upcoming service packs run integrity check on system files, and if it detects any missing files – it won't let you install and display the following error message: Service Pack Installation Cannot Continue (one or more system components that service pack requires are missing)."

MSI GeForce GTX 570 1280MB Video Card
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You might wonder why we'd bother looking at the reference GTX 570 when we've already had a look at an option from Gainward which carried with it both an overclock and a new cooler. Well, the reason is simple - While the Gainward card is good, it doesn't offer the truest form of GTX 570, as it's got a bigger cooler, an overclock and a higher price tag. What it ends up doing is skewing everything for us and it makes it a little difficult to tell you exactly how one model compares directly against it. So with the MSI reference design on offer, which is still the most popular design a month and a bit on since launch, we'll see how exactly the GTX 570 sits in our TPR and TVR graphs, while also seeing how it compares to other reference card offerings from AMD and NVIDIA."

Zalman N Series SandForce 128GB Solid State Drive
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 2:40P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It is no secret that solid state drives are very profitable and every company is looking to take a slice of the green pie. The latest addition to the growing number of companies offering SSDs is Zalman. Zalman, a company best known for their high performance CPU heat sink coolers and high quality PC cases, might seem to be late for the party, but their entry comes at a time when the winners have been established and little chance of faultier was possible. Zalman's highest performing SSD, the N Series, is controlled by a SandForce SF-1200 controller, the highest performance SATA 3G controller on the market and our pick for any SSD with less than 256GB capacity. The SF-1200 is a beast of a controller and it is aging very gracefully. New firmware from SandForce and their partners has given the highest rated even better performance; something we will look at today since the new N Series uses the latest firmware offering."

Corsair Force Series F180 180GB SSD Review
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 2:40P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Picking a good hard drive is not an easy task. Everyone likes to focus on the fact that the CPU, Motherboard and RAM and make up the heart of the computer. I would argue that your hard drive is just as important if not more important. If you’re motherboard dies you can buy a new one and be on your way again for less than a hundred bucks. If you’re hard drive dies you may forever lose those precious memories.

Nvidia Researching Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing @ NGOHQ.com
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 2:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing (SRAA) combines single-pixel (1x) shading with subpixel visibility to create antialiased images without increasing the shading cost. SRAA targets deferred-shading renderers, which cannot use multisample antialiasing. SRAA operates as a post-process on a rendered image with superresolution depth and normal buffers, so it can be incorporated into an existing renderer without modifying the shaders."
