The launch of ATI's Radeon X1K family of graphics cards last month served multiple purposes. First, it allowed ATI to showcase their next-generation graphics hardware, well before the start of the holiday buying season. Something ATI needed to do after suffering from multiple delays. But it also served another purpose, one that wasn't quite so beneficial to ATI. The launch of ATI's Radeon X1K family of products also seems to have served as motivation to the folks at NVIDIA. Since the introduction of the Radeon X1K family of products, NVIDIA has released a series of new products, fleshing out various price points. Over the last couple of weeks, NVIDIA introduced the new, budget-priced GeForce... Read more...
Hey folks! As most of you know, Valve has released the short, but sweet, Lost Cost level with HDR support. From the Steam update I read earlier, the added commentary seems to be a hit, so they'll most likely be adding it to other projects. It would be nice to see some design comments on their upcoming expansion, "Aftermath". Enjoy the news! eVga 7800GT SLI Review @ Gamepyre "Featuring Lifetime Warranties that actually last, a Step-Up program that's unique in the industry, 24-7 Toll-Free Technical Support, these are trademarks of a company that cares about its customers. For those reasons, I can easily recommend an EVGA video card. The 7800GT CO adds a factory overclocked core and... Read more...

Hey folks! The long awaited horror FPS, F.E.A.R., will be released to the masses very shortly. Reviews should be flooding the net soon, and we'll be sure to bring you a couple. Enjoy the news, goodnight folks! MSI Theater 550PRO @ Viperlair | HH Perspective "For the cool price of $74 USD, the MSI Theater 550PRO is a pretty good value when compared to many other TV Tuners, including ATI's own TV Wonder Elite which goes for almost double the price. Considering there isn't much difference between the two in terms of software bundles and hardware, we'd lean towards MSI's version of the card if you're in the need of a tuner for your HTPC box." All-In-Wonder ATI X800XT @ Got|Apex? "The... Read more...
Asus recently presented us with an opportunity to evaluate a rather unique video card, namely their soon to be released Extreme N7800 GT DUAL.  What makes the Asus Extreme N7800 GT Dual somewhat unique is that this card sports a pair of NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT GPUs and 512MB of GDDR3 RAM on a single PCB.  The Extreme N7800 GT Dual essentially simulates a two-card GeForce 7800 GT SLI configuration with a single card. Both Asus and Gigabyte did something similar with NVIDIA's GeForce 6 series of GPUs, but the relatively quick release and availability of the GeForce 7 series overshadowed anything available from the previous generation. This time around though, Asus is ready with a dual-GeForce... Read more...

Fortunately for us, Techgage.com has posted a review on what to expect from this quirky title. Goodnight all! Asus GeForce 7800GT @ AMD Zone "The card doesn't deviate from the standard 7800GT clock speed, featuring a 400MHz GPU clock and 256MB of 1.6ns memory running at 1GHz. The card features an unusual blue PCB for Asus and the stock 7800GT fan however it also includes a number... Read more...
Beware the bug that bricks your DS. That didn't take long. Thinking back to the days of the original GameBoy, I never thought I would see worms crawling into hand held game systems. Actually, back then, the only "worm" I knew about where the ones you go fishing with. Anyway, enjoy the news! Windows Vista Build 5219 Review @ CoolTechZone.com "At the recent PDC, Microsoft started a new way of launching software, and we aren't complaining. The deal is that it'll showcase a monthly update to Vista, which would show progress from the last month in terms of added functionality, features, and graphics in addition to additional functionality. This is an excellent method as it allows Microsoft... Read more...

Well folks, tomorrow we will get to see what ATI's "20 years of innovation" has evolved into with the new Radeon X1000 series cards. Will it be able to keep up with Nvidia's 7800 series cards? Will it be faster? Will it be available at launch? Will you even be able to afford one? If you ask me, I'd say maybe, maybe, let's hope so, and I certainly can't! It's not long now, so stay tuned! Weldbond Feature @ ThinkComputers.org "I have used Weldbond on all my mods in one way or another, as an adhesive, as a coloring, as a special effect. I belong to many forums and when I mentioned that I used Weldbond in my worklogs, I was very surprised to see that 99% of people have never heard... Read more...

Enjoy the news! Leadtek PX7800 TDH MyVIVO Extreme @ hardCOREware.net "The top end model was the 7800 GTX, and unlike what we've seen from their Canadian counterparts, NVIDIA had the products on store shelves the very same day they were launched. Fast-forward to now: Manufacturers have had some time to play around with their designs, and we're starting to see some interesting products. Today we're reviewing teh 7800GTX Extreme from Leadtek. They used a Quadro heatsink, and gave it a nice overclock."... Read more...
In the past, notebooks and gaming were two mutually exclusive things. Granted, you could get away with some Solitaire or Pinball though that was just about the extent of any gaming for mobile users. Over the course of the last few years, we've witnessed the notebook industry go through some dramatic changes. Gaming-specific notebooks were introduced by boutique PC vendors such as VoodooPC and Alienware and offered a solid gaming experience using mainstream desktop GPUs and faster LCD screens to minimize any ghosting effect. Once Dell entered the picture with their XPS line of gaming notebooks, the world knew that the "gaming notebook" was more than a marketing buzz word and that it... Read more...
Apple has admitted to a flaw that has left the screens on some iPod Nanos vulnerable to cracks. With about 1% of all the nanos that have shipped being affected, it's not a widespread problem, but that doesn't really make a difference if your one of those unfortunate few. Fortunately however, Apple has said they will replace the problem units. Now, I don't even own a regular iPod, I'm still listening to MP3s on my desktop. That seems primitive these days... stationary music is so 90's. XFX 7800GT SLI Review Posts @ Gamepyre.com "The 7800GT is a worthy successor to the 6800GT and sell at about the same price point. At the moment, a 7800GT outperforms the competition at the same price point,... Read more...
RaidMax X1 ATX Gaming Case @ Bigbruin.com: "Raidmax continues to impress by offering unique, high quality items at a reasonable price. The Raidmax X1 case is no different... The X1 isn't as flashy as some of the recent "gaming" cases, but does retain enough of the "gaming" case feel with the front LCD, hidden drive bays, and a beautiful side panel." MSI NX7800GTX SLI @ Viperlair: "While we have a lot of praise to bestow upon the MSI NX7800GTX-VT2D256E, there isn't much we can say that we haven't already done so for the 7800 GTX in general. It's fast, occupies one slot, and with it, you can really crank up the image quality settings without sacrificing performance.... Read more...
Gigabyte 7800GT Review @ amdzone.com: "Since ATI got their act together with the Radeon 9700 it has been a very tough battle between Nvidia and ATI over who lays claim to the fastest video card for computer gaming, a constant tug of war that never seems to end. Earlier in the summer Nvidia fought back big with their G70 GPU and the 7800GTX, a card with unparalleled performance across the board. However, with it came a very hefty $500 price tag that most gamers simply cannot afford to pay. At QuakeCon a few weeks ago Nvidia had an answer to this with their 7800GT, the sweet spot of mid-range it cuts the costs by $100 while still being powered by the same graphics processor as the 7800GTX....
