This 32″ Curved Monitor has a Great Price, but a Big Catch

My quest for the perfect price/features monitor isn't over yet, but I found another intriguing entry that's worth taking a look at. A Japan based company named iiyama has a 32" curved monitor that also has a VA panel, and a 144 Hz, FreeSync refresh range. The listed price is only $377, which is fantastic!

DREVO’s Ultimate Keyboard Destroyed Kickstarter Goal – I don’t Understand it

Drevo has the BladeMaster Mechanical Gaming Keyboard on a Kickstarter campaign, and they destroyed their goal in the period of about a day. Sure, it's a nice peripheral, but how does a Genius-Knob make it the Ultimate gaming keyboard? It must be doing something right.



Far Cry 5 and Radeon CrossFireX Scaling Review

Multi-GPU is the future and I don't just mean CrossFireX and SLI. We need mGPU on a hardware level to handle where gaming is headed. Ubisoft is helping to pave the way with Far Cry 5 by having excellent multi graphics card support. The R9 290Xs didn't do too bad either!



Even Corsair Thinks Far Cry 5 is All the Rage!

Seeing a AAA title bundled with an expensive graphics card is normal, but seeing Far Cry 5 bundled with a $150 purchase from Corsair is different. Ubisoft just partnered with them and has even synchronized some of their gaming titles to control hardware lighting effects with iCUE software.



Bloody Has Keyboards with Left-Sided Numpads for Gaming and Ergonomics

Bloody has already proved they can innovate with their optical switches, but the left-sided numpad for gaming and ergonomic keyboards show strokes of genius. The former keeps an identical layout to give better key presses for abilities, while the latter reverses the layout to better suite left numpad typing.



Gamdias Hermes P2 Gaming Keyboard Review

Are optical switches the next big thing? Maybe more so for competitive gaming than daily use, but the Gamdias Hermes P2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard has a great feel for typing with the blue switches. The quality is certainly mythic level and any gamer should consider them as an option.



Nvidia GeForce Partner Program has a Good Point, but Crosses a Serious Line

The Nvidia GeForce Partner Program makes a good point about fair branding for companies that work hard on designing products, in this case, their GPUs. On the flip side, it can really lock down manufacturers from having freedom to choose AMD GPUs for gaming brands, limiting consumer choice.



MSI Releasing Optix MPG27C and MPG27CQ with Crazy MPRT

MSI is releasing two new Optix monitors with 144 Hz refresh rate, VA panels and FreeSync technology. They also come with RGB aesthetic lighting and a crazy 1ms MPRT response time. Motion Picture Response Time is supposed to be a better way to measure the delay in image changes.



Crucial MX500 SSD Review

The best storage solution for a computer isn't the fastest one. It's the SSD that can balance price, performance and capacity. The Crucial MX500 does this the best and is a must have product for anyone building a computer. It won't compete with NVMe, but it's top tier among SATA performance.



The Bloody B975 Keyboard has Optical Switches and a Great Actuation Point

Bloody, a newer name in keyboards, has an optical switch design that is meant to improve competitive gaming performance. Not only do they have a low actuation point, but the optical latency is rated a lot lower than traditional mechanical switches.



Patriot Viper LED DDR4 3000 MHz Memory Review

Patriot has aggressively styled heat spreaders and LED lighting, making their RAM kits attractive. However, it's the overclocking potential of the Viper LED DDR4 that really shines. They only come in RED or White LED, but we're hoping for RGB in the future.



This is How you Up the Ante! Deepcool Introduces Ark 90 Full Tower PC Case

Improving on previous case designs can get boring. How many models get a tempered glass upgrade, with everything else about the chassis staying the same? Deepcool introduced a completely new design with the Ark 90 and while it continues to have an included CLC, it stands out as fresh.



This is the BEST Wireless Adapter you can Get for $26! Oh, it’s a Router Too

If you've contemplated the idea of adapting an Ethernet port into wireless, you may be disappointed in what you find. The way it works is using a feature called Client-Bridge mode on a router. It acts as a wireless adapter, using your Ethernet port instead of USB or PCI. Refurbed Trendnet units are the affordable way.
