    Kingston SSDNow V Series 40GB

    Another great review! That's a shame they discontinued the drive though. 40GB is great for most people, but gamers might want to upgrade to 80GB, since many PC games nowadays take between 8-12GB per install.

    CES 2010: AMD's Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series GPUs

    Agreed, thanks Kougar for putting that in perspective. After the announcement of the Nvidia GTS 360M card this week, I was quite disappointed. The card only supports DirectX 10 and is just a rebranded 260M. It offers 413 Gflops vs the HD 5650's 572 Gflops. Rumor is that Nvidia's Fermi is...

    ATI's Radeon HD 5670 - DirectX 11 for $100

    Terrific review Rob. You raised a very good point about its price point (being very similar to 5750's). I can understand the pricing considering that the 5670 lags just behing the GT250 in most all games. I guess with the limited supply we can expect these to sell around $110 or so.

    CES 2010: AMD's Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series GPUs

    The graphs are a little misleading (the x-axis starts at 80/75 instead of 0). But all in all, very excited. While the performance boost is a little lower than expected (though still the best in its class), the lower power consumption is where this card will shine. Can't wait to see some data on...

    ATI Radeon HD 5770 CrossFireX Performance

    Great review Rob! 5770's in crossfire are legit alternatives to 5870! The major downside I see (aside from Crysis) is the additional power requirements, but also that it won't future proof you like two 5870's will. Which isn't too bad at all!

    Sapphire Radeon HD 5750

    The 5970 is a beast of a card. I'm sure it'll become the best single slot solution on the market! Can't wait for the review!

    Sapphire Radeon HD 5750

    That's unfortunate about the video malfunction. But the most important numbers were there (game FPS). Reading the review increased my ambivalence towards the 5700 lineup. The 5800 packs a quite more punch and I still consider the 5850 to be the best value card out there, but this card falls...

    Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X

    The 5870x2 is going to be insane indeed, but still a few months away. We should see the next gen Nvidia by then. Great review as always, this card looks like a good buy!

    Are You Upgrading to Windows 7?

    Chip off the old block, eh? All I needed to hear was, "faster, less resource intensive" and I was sold. But can't justify the extra $120 for it right now, especially since I'm planning a new computer purchase within the next 6-8 months. But isn't that always implicit that any new version of...

    Thanks Rob. Saw a couple of reviews and the Athlon II X3 435 performed pretty decently for its price point.

    water cooling

    Flamed! :D The Heatkiller 3.0 seems to be the best cooler and the best value. I can't see you going wrong with it. If you want the cheaper Core2Quad's, a socket 775 could work as well if you're willing drill holes in the Heatkiller. I was going to suggest the Apogee GTZ, but the HK has it...

    MSI R4890 Cyclone OC Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express x16 ~ $156!

    Found a great review for this card over at HotHardware and decided this deal was worth posting. In their tests, they found this OCed 4890 to be comparable to the OCed 285 they were testing. Since this deal puts the cost at half the price, it's worth looking into if you're thinking about buying a...
