HardOCP ordered up a sweet powerhouse from Puget Systems, running it through their standard evaluation procedures.  We're talking dual-core, 2GB of RAM, and high end video wrapped up in a sweet looking case.  Better yet, the $2600 pricetag is actually a solid value, beating out a lesser system by $150. "Therefore, in reality, you make look at our article and decide that Puget is exactly the company for you. I must point out that we had a similar system on deck during the testing of our Puget system and it came with slower components while costing about $150 more, so you're getting a good initial value in your purchase." ...

The longtime Apple-rumor based website ThinkSecret has posted that the only Intel-based systems coming from Apple this January will be iBooks. Unfortunately, their sources don't seem to believe we'll be seeing any high-end systems with Intel processors showing up in this timeframe. Those who are patiently waiting for Intel-based Powerbooks and desktops will have to wait a bit longer. However since these systems will be combining the killer Apple aesthetic and fantastic build quality with a solid new architecture, it seems as though this is actually a product that will be worth waiting for.Apple will almost certainly tap Intel's forthcoming Yonah processor for the iBooks, a successor to the company's...

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the performance aspect of computing, that we don't pay enough attention to the other important details.  Yes, we all want a powerful CPU, graphics card and an ample supply of memory, all tied together with a quality motherboard.  But the enclosure you choose to house all of your components is an important component as well.  With a plethora of a various case models available, choosing the right one can be difficult.  A well designed enclosure is a crucial factor for a stable computing experience, especially when overclocking is planned. Today we're taking a look at a case from 3RSystem, a South Korean company who is a major player in the global... Read more...
Hey folks, there's little news in at the moment, but we do have some decent articles for the SuperPower XP02 Case, the NextStar 2 External 5.25" Enclosure, and a review for some apparently good overclocking ram(PDP Systems PC3200 XBLK). SuperPower XP02 Gaming Case Review @ 3DXtreme "Today 3DXtreme presents their latest review of a modded mid tower case by SuperPower.

Good Evening Folks!  BW here to let you all know that we've just posted a new review of PDP Systems' PDC22G4200+XBLK 2GB DDR2 memory kit. We overclocked these bad boys, and compared them to some other DDR2 modules from Corsair and PQI. Click here and check 'em out...... Read more...
When DDR2 first saw the light of day, the memory marked the next level in DDR technology.  However, with improved frequencies, lower voltage requirements and improve packaging also came higher latencies.  With intial offerings coming in at CAS 4-4-4-12 and even higher, the performance improvements over DDR1 were minimal at best.  There was also a significant price increase over DDR1 that became a stumbling block for DDR2 as it really didn't make sense to pay more for the same relative performance.  Today, the DDR2 sector has evolved into the next phase of lower latency offerings.  As expected, we are seeing latency improve, making the case for upgrading to DDR2 a bit...

Whoa!  I've only been offline for about 8 hours, and already our news box is chock full of goodies!  For a geek like me, there's not much better than waking up to a healthy sampling of hardware related articles.  I just brewed a fresh pot of coffee, slammed down a pastry and some toast, and now I'm going to settle in for some good reading.  When I'm done with that, I'm going to button up a review of Asus' excellent Radon X800 Pro!  I figure some of you might want to do the same (minus that part about writing a review), so here's enough hardware news to keep you busy for most of the morning - just don't spill any coffee on your keyboard...  Shuttle's XPC SK83G SFF...
