EVGA GeForce 6200 TurboCache 64MB PCI-Express @ Techniz

Quote: "The EVGA GeForce 6200 TurboCache is the best budget and gives good performance that is suitable for the low end users. The performance of the GeForce 6200 TurboCache performed very well in all the benchmarking compared to the ATI X300. For the overclocking, the EVGA GeForce 6200 TurboCache has an increment of 92MHz for the core and 125MHz for the memory. That brings it up from the default at 350/550MHz to 442/675MHz. The only bad thing is the poor bundle, anyway who cares as long as the performance of the graphic card is good. The total onboard memory of this EVGA GeForce 6200 TurboCache is 64MB. its able to use the system memory and assign up to 256MB for the graphic usage." Read the review HERE

NZXT Trinity Case @ OCIA.net

Quote: "The bezel is made of a thick molded polystyrene (the stuff model cars are made of, but much thicker). The "bolts" are molded into the bezel and have a chrome finish. The LCD display is a temp monitor. As you can see, the case doesn’t have a blowhole. The top is held by screws instead of pop rivets, so cutting one would be a relatively easy task" Read the full review HERE

ATI’s R520 Spotted

While at E3 the Anandtech crew spotted an Intel PCI-e rig at ATI’s booth?with an R520?inside. Quote: "In a bit of a surprise, ATI is running working R520 silicon behind closed doors at their booth here at E3. The R520, not the GPU in the upcoming Xbox 360 but rather the next-generation PC GPU, was running in an Intel PCIe system at ATI’s booth. The system was used to demonstrate Remedy’s upcoming title called Alan Wake. The game itself was quite impressive, with an incredibly large and interactive environment, as well as some of the most impressive weather effects we’d ever seen." Read it HERE

Domination Game Review Plus Performance Comparison @ Bit-Tech

Quote: "The actual tactical play itself can become incredibly involving. The slow-paced gameplay really gives you time to think about your moves, and one has the feeling of outwitting your enemy far more than in an RTS, which can all too often feel like a race. If you?re the kind of gamer that enjoys the Total War games, then this will definitely appeal." "As you can see, the performance scales as you might expect, with the X700 benefitting from the lower resolution…? A sub-20FPS framerate is absolutely playable, and the extra image quality that that allows makes the game a lot nicer to play." Read the full review HERE

Seagate Barracuda 400GB 7200.8 @ Viperlair

Quote: "While having a massive hard drive doesn’t eliminate the need for backups, it does give people more headroom for storage (along with making many of us lazy about backups, but that’s a subject for another day). Apps and games are getting more bloated so the drive you have now may be fine for your purposes, but you may hit a roadblock before you know it." Read the full review HERE

Aspire X-Dreamer II Review

Quote: "?Christened the X-Dreamer II, today’s test subject is manufactured by California based Aspire International Corp, a relatively new company who’ve been around since just 1999 but who since then have made quite a name for themselves, helped partly by the success of their flagship X-Navigator range of cases."

Connect3D X700 Pro Vs XFX 6600GT Review

So, why are we pitting the X700 Pro and not the XT version against the 6600GT? The X700XT has not actually hit retail yet and the word on the grapevine is that it may never hit retail. Current pricing also puts the 6600GT and X700 Pro head to head, with no more than a ?10 difference between them. Can the X700 Pro compete with the mighty 6600GT? Read our In-House review HERE
