Gamer PC Monitor Apple Cinema Display

0 Comment

With AMD, you can use three smaller 22″ monitors to get a gamers view, but for us, a single bigger 27″ or even 30″ display is easier to look at and it would be nice if they were 3-D capable since heck why not. They are huge at 2560×1440 lines As Tom’s Hardware explains, there…

Gamer PC Speakers not really needed

0 Comment

Normally we don’t get super fancy speakers as most of our work is actually going to be gaming with headphones and it is hard to crank things, so we will probably stick with a simple 2.1 system like the JBL Creative systems that we already have. If you do want a great system, it’s probably…

Gamer PC Headphones Corsair Vengeance 1500

0 Comment

Gaming headsets are really important as they help you figure out where people are shooting at you by sound. Tom’s Hardware had a roundup Corsair Vengence 1500. I’m still looking through those, but Tom’s Hardware had a good overview. They like the Corsair Vengence 1500 and say the virtual 7.1 sound is actually pretty good which is…

Gamer PC Power Supply Kingwin LZP-1000 Platinum

0 Comment

Well power supplies don’t seem to have changed much. People are still using ATX connectors and so forth. In fact I have a relatively quiet 750W ATX power supplly around somewhere from five years ago and it seems like it should work. But Tom’s Hardware and SilentPCReview.com did a overview of the issues there which are…

Gamer PC Cases NZXT Switch 810

0 Comment

The biggest issue with cases is having something that is small but big enough to work in. And if you are going to liquid cooling, something that can actually handle a huge radiator. Tom’s Hardware did a great review of full sized ATX cases that are actually big enough to put a three fan radiator…

Speck See Thru for the MacBook Air

0 Comment

I absolutely adore this case. Expensive at $50 but comes with a one year warranty if you buy from an authorized reseller. I didn’t and it cracked and regret it, but it really does protect the finish of your MacBook Air. It is very tight and cracks easily on impact so beware, but it is…

Gamer PC Cooling with Swiftech Edge H200-320 or even an Puget Systems Aquarium with Noctua NH-D14

2 Comment

I’ve always wanted to build a watercooled case. A few years ago, I wanted to build a silent PC and loved silentpcreview.com, but now with water cooling becoming much more turnkey, it makes some sense to go all water cooled and make your machine silent overclockable. Tom’s Hardware has a pretty good guide, but the…

Gamer PC Memory with Mushkin Redline 993997 DDR3-2133 or G.Skill F3-2400

0 Comment

Time once again to learn the in’s and out’s of memory which right now is SDRAM DDR3, but the basic facts are that you can overclock memory a little and in most benchmarks, once you go from vanilla DDR3-1333 to DDR3-2133, you have had a huge improvement in performance at a relatively low cost. If…

USB Flash Keys

0 Comment

These things just keep getting cheaper and smaller. So much so that I keep losing them, I’ve bought of series of fast USB 3.0 drives (even though I don’t have any computer with USB 3.0 :-), but the main thing I’m finding isn’t speed, it is not losing the darn things. The plastic cases are…
