  1. Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H review

    Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H review

    9  

    AMD doesn't make the fastest PC processors on planet Earth. We can all agree on that. But in terms of bang for your British buck, the world's second-string CPU maker still has plenty to offer. Put simply, you get a lot for your money if you go with an AMD platform. Take this Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H microATX motherboard. It's based on AMD's latest 880G integrated chipset and also sports the SB850 southbridge chip.

    There has been a battle brewing in the motherboard world, and predictably it's been between the Taiwanese motherboard giants Gigabyte and Asus. And the battle has been fought on the LGA 1366 battlefield.

    Gigabyte HD 5770 Super Overclock review

    Gigabyte HD 5770 Super Overclock review

    8  

    Pre-overclocked cards are always a bit of a gamble, and the penny turns on a number of factors. How overclockable is the GPU in the first instance? Does it offer much headroom to the manufacturer? The same goes with the memory. And the price of overclocking at a hardware level, as we all know, is heat generation, which often means an extra premium for a special non-standard cooler.

    Is Gigabyte's monumental new X58A-UD9 motherboard the most expensive in recorded history? We certainly can't remember the last time a desktop mobo breached the £400 barrier. One thing is for sure: the Gigabyte X58A-UD9 had better be good. Damn good.

    Intel's LGA1366 socket is the highest performing PC platform, period. With motherboards typically costing over £200, it's also pretty pricey. In that context, the recently revised Gigabyte X58A-UD3R is a bit of a bargain at just £159.

    Darn you, Intel; darn you all to heck and back, you melon farmer. You’ve got this horrible, annoying habit – every time you conquer the market and we think you’ve turned into a bloated, complacent shilly-shallier, you go and make up for it with something genuinely exciting.

    Another month another new graphics card from NVIDIA and yet another new naming convention to wrap your frontal lobes around.

    Gigabyte 9600 GT review

    Recently, NVIDIA has gone into manufacturing overdrive, releasing a slew of new graphics cards in a bid to bury the competition. We’ve seen the excellent 8800GT arrive, quickly followed by weaker iterations of the same card at lower prices.

    It’s time to look at Gigabyte’s entry, a bog-standard 9600GT. And while it doesn’t quite match some rival cards in terms of performance, it’s still a contender.

    It’s a relief to see a new AMD product that’s bang on target. We speak, of course, of the 780G chipset. It really is the killer home cinema solution that we’ve been waiting for.

    Gigabyte Poseidon 310 review

    8  

    There’s a statement on the Poseidon’s box that says it’s ‘not just a case’. I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting – maybe Poseidon himself would come leaping out of the box and running around the office, trident aloft?

    If we were less careful, this budget offering from Gigabyte might have slipped through the net. The slim board doesn't support multiple GPUs and only has a four-pin power connection for the CPU and a relatively small northbridge heatsink - which should mean it's not so hot for overclocking, if you'll pardon the pun.

    Here it is, then, the real deal. Without a quad core Phenom to test it with, it's a little hard to draw any conclusions about Spider, but Gigabyte's board is good value for money nonetheless.

    With Intel's Core 2 Duo topping all the bench tables, the Athlon has been reduced to a supporting role as a value offering. In that context, this distinctly modest AM2 motherboard from Gigabyte makes a lot of sense

    Gigabyte GA-P35SCDS3R review

    This is one of the very first boards based on Intel's new mid-range chipset. But is it up to snuff? It delivers more future-proofing than any other Intel mobo on the market. At least until other P35 boards roll up.

    Gigabyte Triton 180 review

    Gigabyte's rather solid-looking 3D Aurora case, while a couple of years old now, is still a popular choice for rig builders and modders. However, at a shade over 100 pounds, it's a bit on the pricey side, pushing it into serious upgrade territory

    The Intel 965 chipset is best known in its P965 incarnation. The G965, where an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3000 has been added to the chipset's features, is the cornerstone for Intel's Viiv platform

    If you're a card-carrying gaming enthusiast, it's all too easy to be seduced by the promise of SLI and CrossFire. So, the second physical 16-lane PCI-E socket on this Gigabyte board is a cruel temptation. But don't be fooled
