It's been less than two months since NVIDIA initially announced the availability of their new GeForce 7800 GTX, and already we ourselves in the enviable position of showcasing a third retail-ready version of NVIDIA's flagship card. We've previously showcased BFG's Editor's Choice Winning GeForce 7800 GTX OC and EVGA's e-GeForce 7800 GTX EGS, but this time around we have MSI's NX7800GTX in the HotHardware labs. Due to the fact that they are all based on NVIDIA's reference design, the MSI NX7800GTX is similar to BFG's and EVGA's products in many respects, but they differ in clock speed and perhaps more importantly in price. Read on and see what MSI has done with NVIDIA's latest top-of-the-line... Read more...
Hey everyone :) Yes, I've taken time during this beautiful day to sit in front of a computer and post up some news. See how nice I am? Alright then, let's get to it.

Hardware Secrets as put up an article showing you how to enable the 2D enhancements for the GPU. I'll try this later, but for now I'm off to the driving range. Enjoy!

           Today we're going to take a look at three enthusiast class motherboards based on the NVIDIA nForce 4 Ultra chipset, the Abit Fatal1ty AN8, the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum, and the ECS KN1 Extreme. All three of these motherboards take the core features inherent to the NVIDIA nForce 4 Ultra, and implement them in their own unique ways. One board is flashy and boastful, another is subdued and loaded up with third-party on-board peripherals, while the other is rather spartan and quite inexpensive. But in the end, they are all subject to our discerning eyes and the same suite of benchmarks. We took all three of these motherboards for a spin, and... Read more...
Hey guys... the Red Sox lost :( It was looking good until the 8th, where everything just started falling apart. Well, with that depressing note out of the way, let's get back to the news.

Good afternoon all! It's your friendly neighborhood Italian here, dropping in with an early afternoon update to let you know that we've just posted a new review of MSI's NX6600GT-VTD128SP. As its name implies, the NX6600GT-VTD128SP is based on the 8-pipeline GeForce 6600 GT GPU, and has 128MB of on-board RAM, but this card is also equipped with NVIDIA's HSI bridge chip for AGP connectivity. And MSI includes some interesting things in the bundle as well. Click here to check it out...... Read more...
By now you've all probably heard about PCI Express and why it's rapidly replacing the aging AGP slot; there is no need to beat a dead horse. Nonetheless, the AGP market is still going strong with plenty of potential buyers out there who don't want to replace their motherboard just yet to accommodate a PCI Express graphics card. We can certainly understand where these budget-conscious users are coming from, but we find it difficult to recommend spending money on any high-end AGP cards at the moment.  However, if you're stuck with an older graphics card (think GeForce 4 / Radeon 8500) and are looking for a nominal performance boost, a low to mid-range AGP model is still a viable option. ...

Hey folks, here's your monday fix :) I've got some news for all you gamers out there... Half-Life 2: Aftermath is rumored to be released in September. Also, Quake 4 is aiming for a fall/winter release date, so it looks like the end of the year will again be a treat to us Source and Doom 3 engine fans.

  Currently, if you're in the market for a video card, there are two great options that will get you premium performance without blowing your budget: the Radeon X800XL from ATi and the GeForce 6800GT from nVidia.  Sure, there are more powerful cards, namely the X850XT and GF 6800 Ultra, but the price of these cards alone can sometimes be greater than an entire entry-level system purchase.  In our past reviews, we've seen that the X800XL and 6800GT create a gamer's dilemma - their similar performance leads to a virtual stalemate.  What might be the 6800GT's major advantage (at least the PCI Express based version) then, is the ability to run in SLI (Scalable Link Interface)...
