Sony VAIO VGN-TX2XP @ Trusted Reviews

Snip: I’ve reviewed a great many notebooks over the years, but this TX chassis is one of the best I’ve ever used. Not only is the TX2XP incredibly light at only 1.25kg, it’s also tiny, measuring only 272.4 x 195.1 28.5mm (WxDxH). The lid is finished in a dark blue with a mirrored VAIO logo in the centre, but when you open it up the whole keyboard and wrist rest are matt silver. Full review @ Trusted Reviews

Super Talent DDR2 PC2-6400 @ 3dGameMan

Snip: You would think by now that DDR2 would have better latencies. Well, it does now, at least that’s the case for this memory anyway! Fact is, most other DDR2 memory still have high latencies. With an impressive 4-3-4-8 memory timing at 800MHz DDR2 it really stands out. If that’s not enough, it can be overclocked much higher at this low latency. Of all the DDR2 memory I’ve tested so far, this one takes the cake. Full review @ 3dGameMan

NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX @ Trusted Reviews

Snip: The headline figure is that NVIDIA has finally followed ATI and moved to a 90 nanometre manufacturing process. This brings a whole string of benefits. Firstly, the actual physical size of the GPU is reduced. It?s roughly half the physical size, so it costs less for NVIDIA to produce it and therefore it can make the card cheaper to produce than the viciously expensive 7800 GTX 512MB.

Coolink SWiF Fans & Silent Savior @ Modthebox

Snip: The appearance of the Coolink SWiF fans are slightly different from what you would expect from standard case fans that are currently on the market. The SWiF or "Silent Whisper Fans" have a nice aesthetic appeal to them and are encased in a translucent clear housing with blue coloured fan blades. Attached to the base of the fan is a 3-pin fan header that includes wire leads for 12V (red), ground (black) and RPM sensing (yellow). In the 80mm fan series, Coolink provides 5 different fans but provided models SWiF-801 and SWiF-803. Full review @ Modthebox

Saitek ST90 Joystick @ ThinkGaming

Snip: Saitek makes some great products, not long ago I reviewed the Cyborg Evo Force joystick. The Cyborg would be considered high-end. Today I have what some would consider low end, not cheap but lower priced. I have the Saitek ST90, billed as: ‘The revolutionary foldable stick for professional gamers’, I’ll admit I am not a professional gamer by any means, but I do love to play games when I get time, which is rare these days. The Saitek ST90 is a cool looking joystick that anyone can afford. Full review @ ThinkGaming
