The Corsair Crystal 680X is the grown-up version of their 280X chassis. This bigger variant can not only hold a full-size system, but also offers better liquid-cooling support, comes with four fans, and plenty of additional storage. It looks like Corsair has taken their trusted and true approach and applied it to the Crystal series to give those who want a flashy cube chassis an extremely viable option.

The Corsair Carbide 678C is meant to refresh the silent line of cases of the brand with a new, modern take using updated internals. With plenty of liquid-cooling capabilities, a fan controller, and wide body, it checks off a lot of points for enthusiasts, which may end up taking away from its intended target audience: the silent type.

RGB mouse pads are a thing, but have you seen one with a built-in Qi charger for your phone? The ASUS ROG Balteus Qi is certainly not your usual mouse surface. With its portrait-oriented, micro-textured plastic surface, 15-zone RGB lighting and built-in USB port, it's definitely a groundbreaking mouse pad, and it's a very expensive one at that.

Devil May Cry 5 is one of the most anticipated titles this season. The third-person hack-and-slash action adventure comes with outstanding graphics thanks to DirectX 12 support and incredibly detailed character models and textures. Optimization is excellent, too, especially for AMD Radeon cards.

Priced at $249, ASRock's Radeon RX 590 Phantom Gaming is the most affordable RX 590 at this time. This dual-fan, dual-slot card includes the highly popular idle-fan-off feature many GTX 1660 Ti cards are lacking, but faces strong competition from NVIDIA's latest card otherwise.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC Black is the company's compact custom-designed GTX 1660 Ti offering at NVIDIA's baseline price of $279. The card is triple-slot, but makes up for it with a shorter length. We saw excellent OC potential that reached maximum clocks matching more expensive cards.

The Zotac GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is the company's most cost-effective GTX 1660 Ti offering that's being sold with reference clock speeds. A spartan design, it still manages to offer the best noise levels of all the GTX 1660 Ti cards we tested today.

The MSI GTX 1660 Ti Ventus XS is a cost-efficient design, coming at NVIDIA's baseline price of $279. Even at that price point, MSI managed to squeeze in a backplate and dual-fan cooler. Also worth mentioning is its extremely energy-efficient operation: 2.5x as efficient as the Radeon RX 590, and faster, too.

Corsair has revamped their desktop lineup with the ONE i160 compact gaming PC. Sporting an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, Intel i9-9900K, and 32 GB of memory, this new system is more than just a bunch of high-end hardware. It's also absolutely tiny. Maybe, they should have called it Little Mac since it packs such a serious punch.
