    A highly customisable and very solidly constructed chassis. You'll be hard pushed to find a better case for the cash.

    One area that has seen substantial growth over the past 18 months is the mini-ITX case market. The realisation that these mini-motherboards can be the basis for some pretty powerful PCs has started to dawn on people.

    What's the VLP moniker stand for? Why Very Low Profile, of course. Now you can have that massive CPU cooler and performance RAM in the same rig.

    Toshiba isn't known for solid-state drives, and this SSD seems unlikely to change that.

    Can this fairly large slab of silicon and whirry bits shake AMD's unjust reputation for flaky drivers and weak performance?

    This small hard drive connects to your TV, with a compact design to make it as unobtrusive as possible.

    MSI HD 7850 1GB review

    10 Editor's Choice award  

    We decided to find out if the HD 7850 in 1GB dress can compete with the pricier, bigger and badder Pitcairn Pro cards toting 2GB.

    Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB review

    The performance of the HD 7850 when it first came out, combined with its relatively low price tag, made for a very enticing mid-range card. That impressive start has only gotten better as time has moved on.

    We haven't come across a Reveen cooler before, but that's hardly surprising as it's a pretty new company on the scene. The current flagship of its tower designs is this Kelveros RC-1202.

    Yep, you've read the name right, Sapphire has plunged into the murky world of third party processor chilling with its Vapor-X CPU cooler.

    This far down the pecking order of graphics cards you will really struggle to get anything close to decent gaming frame rates out of a normal 1080p screen.

    Despite its chunky fan, this is not a high-performance chip cooler in the traditional sense. It's designed to keep your CPU cool, while producing very little noise.

    Just as Intel has done with the 335 series, Kingston has come up with a new range of drives matching the old LSI SandForce SF-2281 controllers with the latest ideas in NAND technology.

    PNY GTX 650 review

    What both iterations of the GTX 650 have going for them is their diminutive size. They're both pleasingly small little graphics cards, ideal for the wee PC. But has too much been sacrificed in order to save space?

    Can you really get good gaming frame rates for under £100? In the case of the MSI HD 7770, the answer is an affirmative yes.

    Featuring an only slightly cut-down GK104 GPU compared to the top-end GTX 680, we were big fans of the GTX 670 when it first tipped up. It was only a little slower than the top GeForce card and was much cheaper.

    With its latest HyperX Beast modules it's like finding out that the little old lady across the street uses a Suzuki Hayabusa to go and collect her pension.

    Thanks to Nvidia finally getting its act together with its own mid-range cards, AMD has started aggressively pricing and now the HD 7870s, and even this overclocked edition, are sitting below the £200 mark.

    When it comes to mini-ITX boards, Zotac is a major player. It offers boards supporting the latest CPU technology - in Intel and AMD trim.

    The HD 6990 then was the last beefy multi-GPU card straight out of the state of Texas. Luckily we don't have to rely on the ten-gallon-hatwearers for all our AMD goodies though.
