GeForce 6600GTs, Samuri Cases, Barracuda Performance Comparison
Happy Friday all! Man, another week has flown by and I feel like I've got nothing done. The hardware is piling up and I can't seem to get ahead of it. With the holidays coming fast, there is so many other things to steal the time lately. With family coming into town, shopping and various get-togethers, time seems more precious than ever. Fortunately, I think I am done shopping, the family went back home to NY and my calendar looks clear for the rest of the week. It looks like this weekend I will be playing catch up and get you guys some more reviews!
"A little while ago nVidia launched their GeForce 6600GT graphics card using the PCI Express interface. The GPU received great reviews around the web for impressive performance for the price but lacked one major thing - AGP support for those who had not yet made the jump to the new platform. nVidia has now released the AGP version of their 6600GT graphics card and today we take a close look at the product and see how it differs from the PCI Express version."
"The 6600GT looks really good on paper, and from what we've witnessed so far in its performance, it looks like an excellent mid-range video card that is more than capable of holding its own with newer games."
"With a distinctive front bezel and side window, the Sunbeam Samurai Case attempts to grab prospective buyers with a penchant for standing out amongst the crowd. Does function follow form though in this pre-modded case? Step inside to find out."
"One important thing to note about NCQ technology is that it requires not only a drive that supports it but also host-side support, meaning the PC that the drive is connected to must have a controller capable of using NCQ. Today, only Intel's 915 and 925 platforms have this feature, but AMD fans will have it when motherboards based on NVIDIA's nForce4 hit the streets."
