Having just gone out for some last minute stocking stuffers for my significant (very significant if I know what's good for me) other, I can totally relate to this headline and story.  I purchased 6 cartridges in total for an HP Photosmart 8450 printer and it cost me over $170.  Now mind you, the printer itself, almost a full year ago now, cost me like $110. PopPhoto comments on HP's (and many others) racket in the ink business.  You think it's about selling printers?  Guess again.  The ink biz pulls in more profit than a high-end Cat House a when ship full of Navy boys pulls up to port.   "$10,000 per gallon of ink?

The crew at HardCoreWare.Net sent word that they've posted a review of a new 2GB memory kit from OCZ. The EL DDR PC3200 Gold GX XTC sticks feature OCZ's new XTC heatspreaders that prompted Corsair to distribute a whitepaper detailing the benefits (or lack thereof) of hearspreaders on RAM.

It also sports a nice new XTC heatspreader which we'll put to the test."... Read more...
In the need for some low latency ram that's just begging to be overclocked? Overclockers Online takes a look at OCZ's 1024-3200 Gold Edition XTC. It's some great ram to have if your motherboard supports DIMM Voltage of 3.0 of higher. "For the suicide-shot overclockers, this is the memory for you because nothing will be able to touch it at 250+ with timings of 2-2-2-5. The gamers out there with higher end CPUs that also have higher multipliers will fall in love with the tight timings at moderate overclocks as well. It is hard to say whether the XTC heatspreaders are any better than the standard ones but the theory behind them is solid and they... Read more...
The X-Mystique 7.1 Gold brings Dolby Digital Live technology to an add-in sound card.  DDL can take DirectSound3D and EAX sound streams and translate them into Dolby Digital 5.1 streams.  This can also take place with CDs, MP3s and WMV-HD movies.   If you're a HTPC buff, this card can bring some features to the forefront that were previously unavailable in a sound card."For those of you who have been hiding under a rock the X-Mystique was the first add-in sound card to have Dolby Digital Live (DDL) technology.

Whether you're a serious overclocker or simply want a quiet and cool running system, choosing a quality CPU cooler is crucial.  There is no shortage of choices available, making the decision factor a daunting task for some, but taking the time to research the right cooler can result in a positive long term experience. Some coolers specialize in specific tasks, such as low noise or extreme cooling regardless of sound, while others tackle both issues in a single design.  One such cooler that fits virtually any situation is Thermaltake's Golden Orb II.  The Golden Orb II is a behemoth of a cooler that mounts an oversized blue LED fan on a hefty chunk of copper.  Designed to support...

I came across some great new pictures of Nintendo's Revolution controller today(thanks blue!). The Wavebird adapter is not surprising as the system supports Gamecube titles. There's still plenty of criticism about the new controller, and Nintendo needs to show it off a little more, possibly with demos of current favorites such as Metroid or Zelda. Anyway, enjoy the news folks, goodnight! OCZ PC2 4200 Gold Edition (2x 1Gb) 3-3-3-8 @ Club Overclocker "For the past year I've always recommended 1gb of good DDR or DDR2. No more, no less. That was until I started playing new games like Doom 3, Half Life 2, and now Battlefield 2. While Doom 3 was more graphics card intensive, it also needed a ton... Read more...
Hey everyone, I'm just dropping off some news before I hit the sack :) Goodnight all. Ultra USB Hubs @ Viperlair "The USB 2.0 Hub has the advantage of nicely spaced out ports, LED indicators for power and usage, and of course the bonus of USB 2.0 speeds. Being a powered hub you shouldn't have to worry about power hungry USB devices drawing to much power and shutting down your ports, and the power adapter itself is quite universal with an input rating of 100-240v; a simple plug adapter and the hub can be powered up anywhere with a socket." OCZ PC2-6400 Gold Series @ Bytesector "Today, I will be taking a look at their second-best DDR2-800 memory modules, also known as their Gold... Read more...
It's AMD, it's dual-core, and it's cheap... well, cheaper anyway. That's right, the new Athlon 64 X2 3800 reviews are out and about, and here at HH Marco has taken this thing through a battery of tests. Also new in the AMD lineup, is the 3400 Sempron. Jeff takes a look at the newest member of the Sempron family to see if it can hold it's own against today's latest and greatest applications and games. AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 "AMD's dual-core processors were undeniably desirable, but with a minimum cost higher than some complete entry-level PCs, justifying the purchase of one of these processors would be difficult for many enthusiasts.
