The only complaint I have with the Sunbeam case is that it could use a better (and complete) instruction set. In future revisions of this case, I would like to see an additional access panel on the right side of… Go To Full Article

@ 2007/07/13 read/post comments(0)
The Gigabyte GA-N680SLI-DQ6 was an excellent performer in essentially every category. In both the synthetic and real-world benchmarks, the GA-N680SLI-DQ6 either finished at the top of the heap, or just behind the first place finisher. There isn't a whole lot… Go To Full Article

@ 2007/07/13 read/post comments(0)
What the results of this review show us is interesting. Although single and twin 2600XTs can perform well in synthetic benchmarks and in games that don't have lots of Anti Aliasing and Anistropic Filtering, they really fall down in games… Go To Full Article
