December 2006 system guide
CHRISTMAS IS FAST APPROACHING, and it's high time we brought you a new system guide to fuel your holiday upgrading urges. Since October, there have been some major new product releases in the high-end market, such as the introduction of Intel's quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor and Nvidia's GeForce 8800-series graphics cards. For this new guide, we've re-thought our higher-end system recommendations while updating the lower-cost rigs to take into account pricing and product availability changes.
We've also brought a brand new system into the fold with the Couch Potato. This machine is meant to be a full-featured living room PC complete with TV tuning, Wi-Fi, quiet cooling, and even modest gaming capabilities.
Once again, our sponsor for the system guide is the excellent online retailer Newegg.com. Newegg's support allows us to make more frequent updates to the guide, and considering its excellent track record and competitive pricing, it's also a fine source of components for prospective buyers. Of course, the component picks in the guide are still very much our own. They have evolved from our previous system guides, with obvious input from our more recent hardware reviews and new developments in the market.
