Belkin Conserve Surge Protector ( 10-outlet)
Belkin's Conserve surge protector probably won't save you a ton of money, but it does provide a convenient way to selectively shut off any power-sucking devices in your home.
EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked
We don't think most gamers shopping for a midrange 3D card are looking for power efficiency, but for those conscientious few, the EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked is the card for you. Otherwise, you can get noticeably more performance and capability from an only slightly more expensive ATI card.
Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 ( PCI-e 2.0, 2GB, GDDR3)
Even if it's a relative power hog, the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 brings so much speed and utility to the table it's hard for us to recommend another midrange 3D card. Only the particularly power conscious or those who play games with known multichip scaling issues should look elsewhere.
EVGA e-GeForce 9800GTX+ Superclocked graphics card
EVGA's GeForce GTX 9800+ Superclocked edition has basically the same price-performance benefit as its Radeon HD 4850-based graphics card competition. With identical bang-for-the-buck, you'll like this card if you demand power efficiency, but you should turn to ATI's card if your PC has limited upgrade room.
BFG GeForce GTX 295 ( PCI-e 2.0, 1.7GB, GDDR3)
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 295 is the single fastest 3D card on the market, and for a relatively aggressive price. Added bonuses like power efficiency and PhysX support sweeten the deal, but even without those extra benefits, we'd still recommend this card for its processing power and comparative value.
Callpod Fueltank CAFT-0001
The Callpod Fueltank is a well-constructed and user-friendly device that works exactly as advertised.
Intel Core i7-965 Extreme Edition
Thanks to an expensive new motherboard requirement, Intel's new Core i7 desktop processors will remain enthusiast and professional-level parts until more affordable complementary hardware comes out later next year. Speed never comes cheap, however, and if you're willing to spend for it now, you'll find yourself in possession of the fastest CPU on the market.
ZeeVee ZvBox Zv-100
While the ZvBox succeeds in delivering any Web- or PC-based videos to your TV, the system's convoluted setup and laggy control scheme make it hard to recommend--especially at this price.
SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus ( 4GB)
SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus boasts an innovative set of features, fast data transfers, and a complimentary six-month online backup subscription, but we're put off by the subsequent annual service fee and the expensive retail price, especially when other drives at equal capacity cost much less.
Tekkeon TekCharge MP1800
The Tekkeon TekCharger MP1800 accomplishes its job and does it well. We just wish an important part wasn't missing.
