Building your first PC can be a daunting experience trying to figure out what parts will play nicely together. Not to mention the stress of trying to find a GPU at MSRP (good luck with that).

Like it or not, eBay is the go-to dumping ground for items that are in high demand and extremely difficult to obtain, like the latest generation graphics cards and game consoles.

New operating systems always arrive with some interesting quirks, and when one gets released with as many restrictions as Windows 11, you know things are going to get interesting. Windows 11 was initially released with a laundry list of exclusionary requirements, presumably in the name of security. One of the most... Read more...
Microsoft's Flight Simulator is one of those things you have to experience before you can truly appreciate it, and not everyone will understand what's so special about it—much like the experience of flight itself. On the surface, it might not seem like a flight simulator would be that much fun. "What, you just fly... Read more...
As was the case with the move to DDR4 memory with Skylake and the move to DDR3 with Core 2-series processors, Intel's first DDR5-enabled platform is also backward-compatible with DDR4 SDRAM. That means that we'll be seeing motherboards for Intel's Alder Lake-series processors that accept DDR4 memory instead of DDR5... Read more...

The Left 4 Dead games were great cooperative fun. For the uninitiated, four players blasted their way through frantic zombie hordes in the L4D games, working together as a team just trying to survive. Developer Turtle Rock Studios, which was acquired by Valve prior to the release of the first game, re-established itself as an independent studio... Read more...
Some of you may have woken up today and seen an ad for a working Fisher Price Chatter Telephone seemingly aimed at adults (and/or high-tech children), and thought it was April already.

“We have been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.” This statement has become something of a joke, but it serves to highlight people’s ongoing frustration with robocalls and text messages. The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is currently working on reducing these annoyances... Read more...
I have a confession to make. When it comes to Apple products, I like some of them. A lot. Like the iPhone lineup (I'm currently using an iPhone XS Max), and the AirPods Pro. Perhaps more controversial, I'm not bugged by the notch, not at all (though I understand why some people hate it). But I'm also not blind to the... Read more...
Hmm, do you think maybe Samsung and its retail partners (or at least Amazon) are savvy to Google's upcoming Pixel 6 event later today? It sure appears that way, given the timely and generous discount that's available on the recently launched Galaxy Z Flip 3. It's been reduced by $150 from its MSRP, hitting its lowest... Read more...

AMD and Microsoft said they had patches forthcoming, and indeed, that seems to be the case. Testers in the Beta and Release Preview channels in the Windows 11... Read more...
Valve's taking a lot of risks with the Steam Deck. The company has been quite up-front about the fact that it's a full-fat handheld PC, and while this comes with its own set of compromises, it also means that it should in theory be capable of playing the vast overwhelming majority of Steam's over-50,000 games. We... Read more...

Apple may be on the precipice of releasing its latest processors, the M1 Max and M1 Pro, but that doesn't stop Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger from counting Intel out. Apple is now moving to its second generation of M1 CPUs after transitioning away from Intel, following 15 years of partnership. In 2020 Apple announced its own... Read more...
It was a little over a year ago when Apple announced plans to inject its Mac systems with its own custom Apple Silicon based on Arm, kicking Intel and its x86 chips to the curb in the process.

Five decades later NASA plans to connect the moon to Earth via a Lunar Network (LunaNet), before once again placing boots on the moon, and eventually to Mars and even beyond. NASA has... Read more...
Corsair is officially in the monitor game, with its first-ever gaming monitor release. Technically you could say the company entered the fray a couple weeks ago when it announced its Xeneon 32QHD165, but that was merely an introduction—the 32-inch gaming monitor wasn't actually available to buy, until now. It's not... Read more...
Oh no! Alder Lake is almost here, and when it arrives, it could break support for games, someone hit the panic button!
