    Corsair Neutron GTX 240 GB

    why do you put "needs SATA III to perform the best" as a con? That's more of an issue with the interface itself not the drive. Also even if it does need it to perform the best, is the performance of SATA II that bad? I don't get how it's a con

    Newegg caught!

    Your PC ATM

    finally got a silverstone temjin TJ08e it fits all my specifications, it's small, cool, and quiet. Also it's really really easy to build in, best case I've ever owned.

    Small Cool and Silent?

    I finally got the TJ08e, I also put in a corsair H60 cooler since it's easier to build with, I replaced the stock corsair fan with a 800rpm slipstream from scythe. I'm adding a second fan soon. The build is silent the only noise generates from my psu and gpu, well and the hdd's. Overall silent...

    Am I the only one mad I paid for a 680 when could just got the 670?

    I doubt they intended that way it just happened to be, the gtx570 was close to the gtx580 there was enough of a gap to warrant the price gap this is so close nvidia is shooting themselves in the foot

    Am I the only one mad I paid for a 680 when could just got the 670?

    it's not hate it's called being good with money (well getting the most from it) why would I pay $100 more when I can just overclock and get the same performance? or why would I pay 25% more for at best 10% more performance?

    Am I the only one mad I paid for a 680 when could just got the 670?

    I feel bad for anyone who bought a gtx680 at this point 90% of the performance for $100 less? hell yes

    Tom's Hardware tests the HD7850 768sm

    The Review looks like it performs about as well as a hd6870, if they cut the RAM to 1gb and release it at a price of $175 it could give a lot of competition for nvidias cards at that range

    AMD Readies Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition

    ...what? how is paying the same price for a card that performs worse, runs hotter, and uses more power a better deal?

    Small Cool and Silent?

    hm, so even though the TJ08e looks better the ps-07 is probably the better choice since it's cheaper and the fans can be swapped

    Galaxy Readies Single-Slot GeForce GTX 670

    I was hoping this would be a little shorter seeing as how the PCB is like half the gtx680s but seems pretty awesome I'm hoping we see more single slot gpu's

    Small Cool and Silent?

    I know pretty quiet, I mean my p180-mini is pretty quiet I want silent. Which is why I figured I'd switch them out
  18. washd123

    Small Cool and Silent?

    didn't think about that, do you think the 180mm would be as quiet as 2 120mm 800RPM fans? each one has a decibel rating of 10dB, while the 180mm is rated from 17-30dB

    Small Cool and Silent?

    looks like it won't fit my gpu or most gpus. I'm pretty settled on the silverstone, they're the same inside but different outside and different prices

    GTX 670 review out ...

    good for people who already bought it but for people looking for a new card who will OC, or for people not willing to OC the gtx680 and gtx670 are way better choices

    GTX 670 review out ...

    I wonder why nvidia didn't make a dual gpu with this card, it would have ran cooler and quieter, and probably within 10-20% of the gtx690, on a pcb the size of most single gpu's, and they could price it at $700-800 which would have been more reasonable, and there'd be more availability on it

    Small Cool and Silent?

    I'm having a really hard time deciding between the 2 silverstone ones, I like the look of the TJ08E but the other one has 2x 120mm fans in the front I can replace with quieter ones. Also it costs about $20-30 less.
