Re: Intel Core i7-3820 3.6GHz Processor Review

Thanks for the nice report Nate.
What a simple overclocking process.
Kinda looked like a snap and the Core Voltage was held to 1.104!
Stable and Cool.
Great system for home video editing.

Re: AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card Review

Thanks for the great review Apo, hot card!. I second the preference for the “ single GPU solutions.” At only $30 more than the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win, it’s a steal. My GTX 295 has always been a bit of a PITA and it appears the dual GPU dilemma only continues. It took’um years (YEARS!) to get a...

Re: AMD FX-8150 Processor Review - Bulldozer Arrives

Thank you for the fine review.
This will be a great CPU for me when I plan to build my next system in 3 years.
The single threading issues should be fixed and more software will be written to use it.

Re: Leaked SiSoft Sandra Scores Show AMD FX 'Zambezi' Bulldo

Agree with Major-A.
I have a tech-dumb question.
Will these 8+ core CPU's have "scaling" factors like GPU's?
I know software is very buggy when it come to core usage.

Re: ASUS ROG MARS 2 3GB Video Card Review w/ NVIDIA Surround

Well, it's not more than MY car, but it IS more than my whole system!!!
800 watts, that is one big light bulb.
I imagine the BSOD is the overclocking problem coming out of sleep mode?
Thank you for the review of a remarkable dreamtime card.

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 Video Card Review

Kinda confirms that the 400 series was a band-aid and the 500 series is the real thing.
Now all I godda do is start saving my money (again) and hope the game designers continue to make games for pc's. :(
Thank you for the great review. :)

Re: AMD Vision - The $399 Brazos Notebook Platform Preview

Yet another great review!
Wow! This looks like a great product.
Seem like it will utilize RAM much more efficiently too.
Heck, I have a old Athlon 2.1 Ghz desktop I use for internet
and can’t even watch a friggin YouTube video on it!
This APU architecture is refreshing….for a change.

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 GF110 Fermi Video Card Review

Very nice review. What a great cooling system. And the thing can play Metro 2033 and 19x12! All for $500. I agree with your price comparison regarding the HD 5970. I own a GTX 295 and it has more problems than answers; single gpu card is the way to go. I wonder how Intel gets so much for their CPU’s...

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 SLI Video Card Review

Great review. The scaling is very impressive.
But the scaling is a closely connected to the CPU power.
It is unlikely that anyone would purchase an nVidia 450 (or even two of them) card if they have a $900 CPU.
I am wondering where the scaling starts to drop off based on CPU.
How low can you go?

Hey Apo, is this a DX-10 game (looks like DX-9)

Re: Patriot Inferno 100GB SandForce SF-1200 SSD Review

I wonder if the extra $50 for the Revo is worth it
and I wonder
if the Revo would benefit from extra cooling being on the board (and longer life).

Great Review Apo.
Jeeze, that 41.7 at 19x12 in Aliens vs Predator kinda says it all.
I wasn't expecting that.
GREAT SLi card and a fantastic value! =D>
