Despite the wealth of information that's come out of Microsoft these past few months on its upcoming Windows 10, it's remained tight-lipped with regards to two things most people want to know: what it will cost, and when it will be released? For that reason, I'm sure it's none-too-thrilled that etailer Newegg took it upon itself to give both bits of information to the world. At $109.99 for Home and $149.99 for Professional, these OEM (one PC) versions are $10 more than their Windows 8.1 predecessors. But, given the fact that Windows 10 is free for the first year to owners of legal copies of Windows... Read more...
If you want a quick and budget-friendly route to speeding up a computer that features an “old hat” hard drive, a solid-state drive is pretty much a no-brainer upgrade. Over the years, the prices for SSDs have steadily fallen while performance has steadily increased — it’s a win-win for everyone. Today, Mushkin is teaming up with online tech retailer Newegg to deliver an “eco-friendly” SSD product family for those looking to breathe new life into older (or budget-spec’d) computers. Mushkin’s new ECO2 SSD line features a SATA-III interface and a Sandforce SF-2200 flash controller. Mushkin is promising... Read more...
Where there's a will, there's a way -- and an opportunity. Woot sort of set the tech world aflame when it launched onto the online liquidation + deals scene, and ever since, there have been copycat sites cropping up all over. If there's one thing we love more than innovation, it's a good deal on new gear. Now, one of the tech world's largest online e-tail sites is joining the deal frenzy: NewEgg. NewEgg Flash just launched today, offering the Web at large access to a plethora of online deals from a site that you've all grown to know and trust. You can sign up for an e-blast now, and once you're... Read more...
PC enthusiasts have long discussed the logic of buying a pre-built gaming system when one could be put together by oneself using off the shelf parts for less money and with more personal satisfaction. Of course, there are merits to both ways of doing things, but Digital Storm believes that it’s essentially laid to rest the issue of cost with its new line of VANQUISH gaming PCs. Based on Newegg prices as of a few days ago, Digital Storm says that the four VANQUISH systems will only cost $23-$58 more than a DIY system built using identical components. (Those are very specific dollar amounts.)... Read more...
Get your Sandy Bridge-E, hot of the presses. While Intel doesn't always unleash chips and ship dates at the same time, today's a lucky day for those who just so happen to have spare cash laying around and a desire to pop the newest silicon from Intel into their rig. The Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition CPU is a robust new i7; one that reviewed just earlier today. Once you've read that and made up your mind, NewEgg already has the chip available for consumer sales, with $599.99 buying the 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) processor in quantities of 1. No need to become a business and buy a truckload, phew!... Read more...

The tendency of DRAM to become cheaper over time is generally considered a good thing—at least, in the consumer market—but evidence suggests prices may have fallen a bit too much. Current manufacturing costs using 40nm technology is about US $1.50 while the selling price for a 2Gb part is currently $1.17 - $1.31. This is less a problem for the top-tier RAM manufacturers who are using 30nm tech, but there's no way for smaller players to quickly migrate to the updated process. Selling parts below the cost of manufacture is obviously unsustainable over the long term, a fact that has left... Read more...
A few weeks back, we took a look at the Asus PA246Q ProArt 24-Inch LCD Monitor and came away thoroughly impressed. In our conclusion we said, “To say that this is a better display than your average, or even above average TN panel is like saying Ray Allen has an above average jump shot. The truth is the PA246Q is worlds apart from most TN monitors in every way. The PA246Q produces accurate colors, it's bright and crisp without washing out your photos, and it excels at both the dark and light end of the spectrum.” If you’ve been itching for a high-end monitor like the PA246Q ProArt,...

This particular news post is short, sweet, and to the point. NewEgg has a 24 hour deal going on a Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB drive. Normally, this hard drive is $75, but if you order it using the promotion code EMCYWNR48, you'll save $15. That's just six cents per GB and it's the best storage deal we've seen in awhile.  The Caviar Blue series is Western Digital's mainstream product line—it spins at 7200 RPM, but offers just 32MB of cache as compared to the 32-64MB of cache on today's Caviar Blacks. As an added bonus, the drive is being offered with free shipping.... Read more...
Last we checked, boutique system builder iBuyPower had no less than 627 million gaming machines to choose from and configure, or somewhere thereabouts. Alright, so our math might be slightly off, but the point is, the company can afford to toss a bone to Newegg, largely regarded as the go-to online vendor for computer parts, by selling a gaming rig or two exclusively through the online e-tailer. Well folks, that's exactly what they've done, putting together a pair of pre-assembled six-core Phenom II X6 gaming rigs available only on Newegg.com. First up is the LAN Warrior 5830Q6, which iBuyPower... Read more...

Yesterday, we brought you news that a batch of Core i7 processors that shipped out of NewEgg had been complete fakes. The boxes in question looked real enough from the outside, but opening the cardboard revealed "fans" that were actually stickers and processors made of aluminum. and a bit of paint. At the time we identified D&H Distributing as the company responsible for shipping the "demo units" to Newegg in the first place. We've just heard from Newegg regarding this problem; we're passing along their statement: "Newegg is currently conducting a thorough investigation surrounding recent shipments... Read more...
You know what's even better than weird news? Weird news well-flavored with legal stupididy, that's what. Our saga today starts with a shipping oddity; specifically the fact that Overclockers.com forum member Dreadrok ordered a Core i7 920 from Newegg and received a completely fake processor. It's a good fake, too—if it weren't for a few misspellings on the outside of the box, we'd believe it was completely legit, particularly if we didn't take the time to scour the box looking for the telltales. This is a fake box, not a real one. You have 10 seconds to find the differences. Go!Dreadrok initially... Read more...
Over the past few months, we have shown you sneak peeks of AMD’s Home Theater PC platform, codenamed Maui, on a couple of different occasions. Essentially, Maui consists of a low-power AMD Phenom or Athlon X2 processor, an AMD 780-series (or higher) IGP, an ATI TV-Tuner and AMD’s Live media center software elements. Currently, MSI’s Media Live DIVA 5.1 motherboard, that has D2's programmable audio chip onboard to allow 5.1 amplified output, is the foundation of Maui (a 7.1 channel pre-amp output card is also an option).   It’s definitely an interesting motherboard to say the least, and...
