This review was originally published on May 21st, 2011 but was accidently removed so here it is with updated technology and methods for benchmarking. When you are building your own PC one of the most important components to it is of course your power supply. One company I have trusted for a long time has been Corsair for making products I can depend on, and if in the unlikely event someth... more.

Today, we are reviewing an SSD that is from OCZ Technology –a company I personally am fond of- that rivals some of the best SSD’s the PC world has to offer. Today though, we have the 120GB Vertex 3, and truth be told I have had it for roughly a little over 2 months. Why has it taken so long to publish this review? It is simple; I personally dislike reviews that are done on PC hardware that spa... more.

If you are a gamer, there is one element that is huge; an element so huge that it can cripple a gamers’ entire experience. This one element is of course the monitor. I have been scrounging around for a while to find a suitable monitor for my needs; one that offers 3D and is a full 1080HD via HDMI. Finally after a couple of months of searching I found a brand that I could trust and... more.

Solid State Drives are becoming the thing this day in technology and I am going to say (boldly) that we just might see the complete demise of standard Hard Drives. Normally though when you think of a SSD you think it goes into the same spot a regular HD does right? I did as well, that is until OCZ Technology sent me the Revodrive. The Revodrive is a SSD card that fits into a PCI-E 4x ... more.

I have been a PC builder for a long time now, and there was always one thing I really neglected to dive into and that is the world of liquid cooling. I never did quite understand putting liquid near active electronic circuitry but that was always my thought. However, that is not to say that I never wanted one; they are usually expensive (for me) and are an added thing for me to do when building... more.

With the ever non-evolving ways of the console gaming market, there has always been one thing you could rely on in terms of adaptability and upgrading: you PC. Whether people want to admit it, us PC gamers have a ton of cash dropped into our elite gaming machines one way or another. However, there has always been one thing that has been inexpensive, and reliable: memory. Today, the awesome people ... more.

Are You Ready for Eyefinity…? So you just got your tax return check in the mail and you’re feeling like a balla. Do you make it rain dolla bills at the local strip club, or put together that multi-monitor rig on your gaming machine? After all, you have been drooling over, ever since you watched those YouTube videos of HawX or World of Warcraft being played in panoramic widescreen.... more.

I will be up-front with this, I have never, and I mean never purchased any other motherboard other than a Foxconn. I have always loved the look and features of their motherboards, and their name to me means a lot. My very first custom PC purchase was a Foxconn motherboard, and every subsequent desktop I have built (around 9) have all had Foxconn motherboards in them. That sa... more.

When you think of the name Gigabyte what comes to your mind? Quality products, gaming accessible motherboard are a couple of things I think about when I hear their name. Recently I had the opportunity to test out the Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 motherboard and much to my amazement it withstood every thing I could throw at it. For the sake of time, here is the setup I had used for this ove... more.

I like to think of myself as somewhat of a chassis conessiour; not only because I know them, but because I collect them. Seriously I have a collection of around 30 chassis waiting to be filled and I get even more on a weekly basis. So what sets the In-Win Dragon Rider chassis apart from all of the others? Style. One look at this very busty beast and you nod your head in excitement. It is just a... more.
