Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 OC Edition Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Apr 18 2013 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at a brand new video card from Sapphire. We have been hearing about the Radeon 7790 over the past few weeks and earlier this year AMD said we would see an HD 8000 series towards the end of the year and they would be refreshing their HD 7000 lineup with new chips. The HD 7790 is the first card that is part of this refresh, based on the brand new Bonaire 28nm graphics processor. The Bonaire graphics processor is based off of AMDs graphics core next (GCN) architecture and features 896 stream processors. We are looking at Sapphires version, which is the HD 7790 OC with Dual-X. The Dual-X is for Sapphires own unique cooling system on the card. This card features a 1075MHz core clock, 1GB of GDDR5 memory and has dual DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort connections. This card is setup to compete directly with Nvidias GTX 650 Ti. Read on as we take a look..."

You could throw in a 4TB drive as well as two new Crucial M4 960GB SSDs for a stunning 5.8TB of storage - 1.8TB of that being very fast SSDs. . ."

Enermax Ostrog GT Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review
     Wed, Apr 17 2013 | 12:49P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax designed the new Ostrog GT gaming enclosure to be a fortress for all your PC gaming hardware. The Ostrog GT is a full-featured mid-tower case that provides numerous case cooling options and comes with three installed fans. It can easily accommodate extended VGA adapters (as long as you are willing to remove the upper HDD cage). The case offers lots of drive mounting space but does not come with any built in 3.5/2.5 HDD hot-swap options. Overall the build quality is good, the case is easy to work with, and it is relatively affordable for a full-featured mid-tower gaming enclosure."

Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 Dual-X OC Review
     Wed, Apr 17 2013 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A high performance FPS beast the Sapphire HD 7790 is not, nor is it meant to be. That being the case the FPS performance it delivered while using upper end settings is pretty impressive, all things considered. In every test run it was faster than the target competitor`s card, the GTX 650Ti, at the target price point of $149/159. While running the gaming tests I found the HD 7790 delivered smooth game play with the settings used for my tests. A tangible result when you compare apples to apples."

Diamond BizView 750 @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Apr 16 2013 | 5:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to options for upgrading some of todays small PCs from manufacturers like Dell to be able to handle even the most basic games can sometimes be difficult. Its one thing if your pc supports a full height video card, but if you need half height the options are limited. That problem is multiplied when you also have to consider how much power the power supply has, generally PCs like this dont have 6 pin connections free and sometimes not even Molex plugs. That is where products like the Diamond BizView 750 come in. The BizView is focused on business use, but with it being an HD 7750 it could also be perfect for light gaming as well."
