eVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC 2GB Review reported at 11:23 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
EVGA's GTX 650 Ti SSC 2 GB is available online for $180, which is clearly too high. The extra 1 GB of memory contributes a lot to the price increase, and it does not provide enough extra performance to justify the cost. The same card, as 1 GB variant costs $155: definitely the better buy. But $155 is still expensive compared to what the various AMD HD 7850 1 GB cards offer. They provide over 25% more performance at slightly higher pricing ($165).

Sub-$200 CPUs & APUs Shootout reported at 11:01 AM
category: Intel Socket 1155 CPUs     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
For your dollar, the Core i5 has no competition above $160. At $130, the Core i3-3220 is tough to beat. It no longer humiliates the FX line-up in games thanks to AMD's most recent architectural update, but it's still cheaper, faster, and more power-friendly than most of the Vishera-based models. Fortunately for AMD, its chips fare better in the non-gaming components of our benchmark suite, where its modular architecture is better able to benefit from today's threaded software. In a general-purpose workstation, that's certainly something to think about. But in a pure gaming machine, there's just no ignoring the effectiveness of Intel's Sandy and Ivy Bridge designs.

If you are a MMO/RPG gamer you may find that the lack of macro keys a reason not to spend the money on the TK. If you a FPS player, you may come to love this keyboard as you may not have a reason for these types of keys.

Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator Review reported at 10:52 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: Techgage
Article Quote:
Kingston’s DataTraveler HyperX Predator drive is expensive, but isn’t priced outside the realm of reason given its performance and price-scaling. It offers superb solid-file performance but falls a bit flat when a lot of smaller files are concerned. It’s the best-built thumb drive we’ve ever laid our hands on – and we mean that. If not for that fact that the drive costs $800, I would have been tempted to run it over with a truck.
