New Core 2 CPU does the rounds

Mon Jun 25 2007, 18:37
SEAN FROM PLANETX64 posted his long-overdue review of Foxconn's GeForce 8800GTX, comparing it how it would fare in a computer that was occupied by 2nd generation CrossFire graphics cards. Results are as always, quite interesting.

HardwareLogic posted a review of Super Talent's 4GB memory kit under the name T800UX4GC5. As you can guess, this is a 2x2GB memory kit with CAS5 latency. To stay in the memory world, lads also took the time to interview John Beekley, VP of New Products and Applications over at Corsair Memory Inc.

XSReviews filed a review of OCZ GameXstream 1010W, a PSU belonging to the line before this aggressive manufacturer pulled a coup and acquired PC Power & Cooling.

Legit Reviews tested Intel's V8, media creation demo machine. This monster is one mean machine, especially if pair with a powerful graphics card.

Legion Hardware tested P35T-A, value motherboard based on Intel's P35 chipset.

ComputerShopper posted an article about building a great DIY system, regardless of the budget in question.

Sean also managed to get one Intel Core 2 Duo E6750, a new revision of great Conroe model with support for the new, faster Front Side Bus. Same product, different take over at PC Perspective - this one came out with a 44% overclock, so head over and see what's going on. TechGage did the same, and has the final spot in this E6750 previewage, due to alphabetical order. Anyway, E6750 preview at TechGage can be read here.

PlayReaction.com posted a review of Dell 2407WFP, a monitor that is constantly going down the price ladder, offering even greater value than ever before. If you're looking for one great 24" product, check this one.

TweakTown went to dig to find who is the best companion for the above-mentioned monitor, pitting Asustek's views'n'takes on HD2900XT and 8800Ultra. Same manufacturer, two very different cards - which one is better - now that ATI has drivers that can give Graphzilla a run for its money?
