    Freecom Mobile Drive Sq TV review

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

    Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB review

    8  

    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.

    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.

    Reeven Kelveros RC-1202 review

    6  

    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.

    Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB review

    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.

    Thermalright Macho Rev.A review

    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.

    Asus GTX 670 Direct CU II review

    7  

    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.

    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?

    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.

    Zotac A75-ITX WiFi B-series review

    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.

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

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

    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 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.

    The question Samsung's asking is just how much are you willing to pay for the ultimate in SSD oomph.

    Spire X2.6011 review

    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.

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