    AMD Confirms Key "Summit Ridge" Specs

    Not that I feel comfortable spending $1700 for a CPU, but if you look back in 1993 when Intel released the Pentium 66MHz cpu they priced it at about $1000. Looking at the price of inflation, we're very close to a $1700 CPU back then. Technology has gotten CHEAP compared to back then...

    Watercooling radiators question

    I remember trying this a long time ago (read GTX 480 SLI) Didn't make much of a difference. Wasn't worth the hassle. Water can hold a LOT of heat, and can only cool so quickly, and the 1/2 degree that it is cooler before it hits the GPU won't make much of a difference. Where you place the...

    Intel Haswell Platform Faces USB 3.0 Issue: Report

    I would love....*LOVE* to believe Haswell-E is coming out in 2013. Socket 2011 just isn't worth the upgrade from my 1366 (that has been such an awesome platform...). But, as someone so eloquently said on another forum....I want a new shiney. :D

    SLI with different cards

    In that thinking, you could SLI a GTX 670 and a GTX 680. But you can't. with regular drivers. They have to be the same model #, but can differ in clocks (EVGA GTX 680 with EVGA GTX 680 SUPERCLOCKED can work)

    Creative Sound Blaster Z Sound Card

    So, I had a chance to play Borderlands 2 and watch a few movies (tv-stereo and DTS movies). I got the base model. I don't need the highest-end inputs, and the ACM is redundant for me. I went from a Titanium X-Fi PCI-E to this. I was expecting to have buyer's remorse, but nope. Popping...

    Creative Introduces the Sound Blaster Z-Series Sound Cards

    I've had a sound blaster card ever since the first one was released waaaaay back when 25MHz 386's were the top of the line. I've enjoyed them all. But I must admit....driver support has been very poor for my X-Fi card. Drivers on the CD had horrible problems installing, forcing me to remove...

    Intel Acknowledges SSD 320 Series ''8 MB Bug''

    +1 Better that you buy a possible bugged Intel drive than crap a OCZ drive. OCZ deletes your posts/threads on their forum to cover their asses. Its WHEN, and NOT IF, your OCZ SSD goes on the fritz... I've had the Vertex 1 and 2 drives. Both of them were problematic at best.

    TRENDnet Makes Available First to Market 500 Mbps Powerline AV Solutions

    I have three of the 200Mbps ones. In the same room, I get 192Mbps. The room just downstairs from my office I get 68Mbps. Not great, but good enough for streaming media, the internet, etc. Why no wireless? I have that too (for just in case), but it interferes with my wireless mouse and keyboard.
