We've had some big game releases this month, and today's release is... F.E.A.R.!

OCZ Gamer eXtreme Enhanced Latency Memory @ CoolTechZone: "Over the past few years, OCZ Technology has been pushing the limits of memory modules with its fine engineering talent.

Howdy Ya'll! The day after a blizzard is the perfect day to do nothing, really, every brain cell has stopped. I was barley able to crawl myself over to the computer, and work these unwilling hands. I've got a wood stove and football is on TV, can you blame me?

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 my computer to the monitor's right), it became very noticeable. Looking at pictures of the issue online,... Read more...

The Hercules Gamesound Fortissimo II Big Sound, Small Price... By Robert Maloney April 17, 2002 Before we begin, I would like to give you a little background information because this is my debut appearance on HotHardware.  I have been working on and with computers for most of my life (as I am sure most of you reading this can say the same) and consider myself somewhat of a techno-geek. New hardware always makes me a drool, even when I have no need for it. My first IBM clone was a sleek 486DX50 with a whopping 4MB of RAM. Being a novice to clones at the time, I bought this one with only two words in my head as a requisite: ?SOUND? & ?BLASTER?. All of the advice I heard said that you needed... Read more...
The Hercules Game Theater XP Hercules is Breakin' Out! By Jeff Bouton May 22, 2001   Today, it seems that if you ask someone what kind of sound card they have installed in their system, more often than not, the answer is "...a Sound Blaster Live..."  Without a doubt, Creative has garnered a huge stake in the PC audio market, especially with the success of the Live series of sound cards.  But to think that they are the only makers of quality sound cards would be a big mistake.  The Hercules Corporation has been making quality video card products since 1982.  Early on they pioneered video processes that helped shape the innovations that we see today.  In...
