Unfortunately, many PC enthusiasts tend to skimp on their chassis when building a new system. After all, you can get a decent case with adequate cooling for next to nothing these days, making a splurge on a $200-plus, premium case seem unnecessary. However, as anyone who’s owned a truly high-end chassis can tell you, it's usually worth the extra money for superior construction along, not to mention the additional features, ample cooling options, and sometimes attractive lighting. In addition, a high-end case is something that can last through multiple upgrade cycles. That’s how the... Read more...

We had a chance to get up close and personal with NZXT's ginormous Phantom chassis during our 'Back-to-School PC Roundup' in September, and let us tell you, it's a great looking case.

I didn't notice this at all until I previewed the "Blank Screen Saver" included with Windows XP in a slightly lit room. In virtual darkness (with the exception of a blue LED in... Read more...
  A Tale of Two TNT2s The Gigabyte GA660 Turbo Vrs. The MSI 3DAGPhantom We brought in the wreckin' crew for this event. Like a Demolition Team with a bad attitude, we decided to mix up a couple of explosive substances and see what kind of reaction we would get. This is a "Bake Off" of sorts between a pair of TNT2 cards from Gigabyte and Micro-Star International. Both boards are from the standard TNT2 vintage as opposed to the Ultra variety. Both cards also are designed with an agressive approach to the standard NVidia Reference Design. You know both Gigabyte and MSI for their exceptional... Read more...
