Hey guys and gals, take some time out to get a coffee and read the news. Yeah, you can read all about Michael Jackson, the war, life on mars... but who cares, GamePC Labs has compared four RAID-5 Solutions! Check back later for more of the good stuff!
"We would like to introduce to you a new shared storage device for small home and office networks, which is intended to simplify data storage and transfer within these networks a lot. Meet the new solution from Maxtor now!"
"Over the last month we have looked at some very nice cases from Antec's 2005 line. The TX1050B and Titan 550 both showed to be some great products in their respective fields featuring good looks and incredible durability.Today we'll look at the next enclosure in Antec's 2005 line, the TX640B, a mini ATX case that simply looks like a shrunk down TX1050B. Those of you working with limited space or wanting a small enclosure will want to check out this article."
"It is clear that the FX doesn't quite have the same luster with the X2 on the scene. AMD is quick to say that gaming performance is best on the FX still, but clearly from our marks the FX57 will not have a significant edge over at least the 4800+, and likely will not overclock much further if at all. The advantage of the dual core remains the ability to raise the clock multiplier."
"Today at GamePC, we've compared four new RAID-5 solutions on the market with a trio of Western Digital Raptor SATA drives. We've tested the new integrated chipset-level RAID-5 controllers based in Intel's 955x and nVidia's nForce4 SLI Intel Edition SATA-II/300 chipsets, along with dedicated hardware RAID controllers from Broadcom and Areca. We not only test performance, but we also test their software sets and failover / recovery abilities."
"The latest Radeon to receive the All-in-Wonder treatment is the AIW X800 XT, which melds all the All-in-Wonder's multimedia capabilities with the Radeon X800 XT's formidable 3D horsepower. Inexplicably, the All-in-Wonder X800 XT is also less expensive than the Radeon X800 XT, despite the AIW's laundry list of extra features. That sounds too good to be true; read on to see if it is."
