I've got to ask... what's up with the 'unboxing' craze?
     Thu, Oct 11 2012 | 1:45P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

I've got to ask, what's up with this 'unboxing' craze? This kind of content is dead thin on useful information, aside from literally showing what's in the box... a kind of self-evident question if you stop and think about it. Wouldn't you rather check out a thorough review from a reputable hardware review website? Or make your decisions based on qualified test reports rather than circumspect and uninformed 'it looks like it'll perform amazing' type commentary? PCSTATS wants to hear what you think about this, use the Feedback form.

Posted by: STAFF
GPU heat is the by-product of any awesome gaming experience and managing it is a never ending task. ASUS DirectCU II series video cards feature an impressive custom designed cooler for this reason.

A Futurelooks News Flash - NVIDIAs GTX 650 Ti Mini-Kepler Graphics Card Reviewed
     Thu, Oct 11 2012 | 9:36A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA has finally completed their Kepler line up which means there is a GPU based on their latest architecture at every price point. The GTX 650 Ti was the final piece that finishes off the series at an entry level friendly price point of $149 US and is designed to work well at 1080p HD resolutions with moderate setting. Because of its small size and lower power consumption, it also seems to be a good fit for an HTPC when paired with a good Mini-ITX chassis. Join us as weve zoomed in the camera so you can have a closer look at the NVIDIA GTX 650 Ti. *"
