XFX 8800 GTS Fatal1ty: Perhaps the Fastest Graphics Card Ever for Under $350


I arrived Monday morning and there was Fata1ty staring at me… I though, “John Wendel, don’t you even knock anymore.”

I’m glad he doesn’t. This is the most insane 8800 GTS ever released. I can’t imagine anyone trying to compete with it. It challenges the likes of its big brother, the 8800 GTX and even beats it in a couple of the benchmarks.

The Unreal Tournament 3 Demo is here!

I’ll keep this short… The game play is incredibly smooth. I tested it with my Diamond Radeon HD 2900 XT with 1GB GDDR4. I get an even 60 fps at 1680×1050 (everything at max).

I am having a blast with the demo. I will post some more videos and scores after I install my physx card from Ageia. Here’s some footage of the two deathmatch levels:

AMD Athlon X2 6400+ Black Edition Teaser

When ever I see a Fed-Ex truck I instinctively run outside. The rules are simple: If there’s nothing for me, there’s going to be trouble.

There was no need for trouble this time. He handed me a package containing the Black Edition CPU from AMD.

HELP: Building 1st PC! Need Help with 680i PLEASE :)

I’m going to build my own computer with the 680i motherboard, but I’m not yet sure which one to go with :).

I’ve seen some of the Tiger Direct videos and during the review of the 680I SE, it was mentioned that the SE version was “optimized” for the core 2 duo. I would be using the E6700. It was also mentioned that the SE has a 1066 FSB, whereas the LT (cheaper as well) is using the 1333 FSB. Of course the LT does not include the extra pci e slot and extra gigabit (what else?)

EVGA is notorious for its overclocking capabilities, but is it simple? Seeing as its an NVIDIA motherboard, will I be able to use Ntune or should I get into the BIOS way of doing it?
