XFX Radeon HD 7790 Black Edition Review reported at 05:45 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
The R7790 is not built to be a high resolution gaming power house but a good solid performer at the $150 price point. At 1920x1080 resolutions you get playable frame rates in almost all of the games tested with Metro 2033 the lone game under 30 FPS. The idea here is to offer enough performance to get the job done while keeping the price point attractive. As a competitor for the GTX 650Ti, the XFX R7790 Black Edition leads the GTX 650Ti in every test save one where the margin of performance is within a single FPS.

A-DATA DashDrive Elite HE700 Review reported at 11:44 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
"From the looks of it, the new ADATA UE700 is the fastest drive we have ever tested here at Pro-Clockers when it comes to write times. Write times for many is the most important number of the two, read and write, as they would like to get the data on the drive and go."

Gainward GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB Golden Sample Review reported at 11:32 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Legion Hardware
Article Quote:
"Interestingly, however, the GTX 650 Ti Boost and HD 7850 share a very similar price-to-performance ratio. The GTX 650 Ti Boost is 6% cheaper and just 2% slower on average, which does make it a better value product. Having said that your decision will have to hinge on the games you want to play or brand-exclusive features."

Enermax Ostrog GT Review reported at 11:12 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
Coming into this review I was actually pretty excited about this case. When I first took it out of the box I really liked the design and had high expectations for the case. After going through the review I still remained impressed, although there were a few things that were not perfect the case is still a great deal at $74.99.

OCZ Vertex 3.20 Review reported at 11:07 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
OCZ has done a lot of restructuring as of late. They have pared down their product lines and cut away some 'excess' divisions in order to focus on a core group of products. This fared well with their launch of the Vector - a very capable drive which continues to outperform to this day. That said, the Vertex 3.20 in its current form seems out of place. It lacks the performance of other SandForce-based units and even underperforms when compared to competition using the same IMFT flash, yet it is priced only marginally lower than their own flagship Vector. I fear that given the current performance and pricing, buyers are either going to opt for the flagship OCZ Vector or any of the other competition offering their own products at a lower cost/GB. Based on its current IOPS performance, the Vertex 3.20 would need to stay $10-$20 *below* the Intel SSD 335 to truly compete. Further, it would need to keep an even larger margin between it and the nearest 25nm competition. Slimmer margins can only be justified by greater performance, which we hope to see in a future firmware update.

XFX Radeon HD 7790 Black Edition Review reported at 10:10 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"So as you can gather by this point, I am giving XFX’s card a huge thumbs up and it as one of the top 7790′s on offer at the moment from the options that I’ve seen so far. Its simple yet refined looks are very welcomed by the supreme over clocking ability and the results are very rewarding. Considering its very well priced and it it does do so well when pushed further it must be a dream for the budding over clocker."
