  1. MSI HD 7770 review

    MSI HD 7770 review

    7  

    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.

    PNY GTX 650 review

    6  

    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?

    Kingston HyperX Beast 32GB review

    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.

    Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 OC Edition review

    8  

    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.

    Zotac A75-ITX WiFi B-series review

    8  

    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.

    Club3D Radeon HD 7990 review

    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.

    Cooler Master Blizzard T2 review

    Strapped for cash but still on the lookout for a well-built, third-party tower CPU cooler, that does a decent, quiet cooling job?

    Fractal Design Node 605 review

    8  

    This case is aimed squarely at the HTPC builder. It supports all motherboard formats, from full-sized ATX down to teeny mini-ITX.

    Asus HD 7950 Direct CU II review

    8  

    There's a tremendous sense of value when you get this Asus version of AMD's HD 7950 out of the box. It really is rather massive.

    PNY XLR8 Pro 240GB review

    PNY XLR8 Pro 240GB review

    8  

    PNY is a name normally associated with Nvidia-based consumer graphics cards, and maybe the odd memory modules. In fact it makes a whole range of memory-based hardware too.

    Intel 335 Series SSD 240GB review

    8  

    Like its little 330 series sibling and its bigger brother, the 520 series, it's based around the LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller, but unlike the other two this one uses Intel's latest 20nm MLC NAND.

    Spire X2.6011 review

    9  

    Spire is probably better known in the UK for cooling products rather than cases, which might explain why there's more than a little of the Cooler Master HAF series about this X2.6011 chassis.

    Intel Core i7 3970X review

    The best just got better. That'll be Intel's pitch for the new Core i7-3970X. And strictly speaking, it's absolutely true.

    Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 review

    Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 review

    8  

    This Z77X-UP7 is more along the lines of the Asus RoG range - all the bells and whistles you could possibly want from a high-end board, but with everything an LN2-snorting pro-overclocker might be looking for.

    AMD FX-4300 review

    The last few months have left me with a rather positive feeling towards AMD. Can this continue with the upgraded AMD FX-4300?

    AMD FX-6300 review

    8  

    The original FX-6200 impressed us recently with its combination of bargain price, impressive multi-threading performance and serious overclocking chops too. Can the FX-6300 repeat the same trick?

    The Korean giant is currently cranking out world-beating kit in several segments, from smartphones to ARM chips and HDTVs. So how do their latest and greatest SSDs stack up?

    The first CM Storm Scout was a dependable, surprisingly roomy case that didn't take up much space - all for under £100.

    The Intel Ivy Bridge technology is the finest desktop processor tech this side of Haswell, and for the PC build without severe budgetary constraints, it's the architecture we're telling you to stick into your gaming rig.
