EVGA e-GeForce 8600 GTS (PCI-e, 256MB)
REVIEW

EVGA e-GeForce 8600 GTS ( PCI-e, 256MB)

If you care more about HD movie watching than gaming and you need a new video card for the task today, we recommend a 3D card like this EVGA with Nvidia's newest mainstream graphics chip. Gamers can get more performance value from Nvidia's higher-end 8800 cards, but for anyone, it would be a good idea to wait to see what's new from ATI in just a few short weeks.

BFG GeForce 8800 GTS (PCI-E, 640MB)
REVIEW

BFG GeForce 8800 GTS ( PCI-E, 640MB)

No other 3D graphics card comes close to this bang for the buck, making the 320MB XFX GeForce 8800 GTS mostly an easy decision if you need a midrange upgrade. Nvidia still has to polish off its Vista software, and the sooner-or-later arrival of competing cards muddies the waters a bit, but if you need a midprice graphics card today, this should be your pick.

BFG GeForce 8800 GTX Water Cooling Edition (PCI-E, 768MB)
REVIEW

BFG GeForce 8800 GTX Water Cooling Edition ( PCI-E, 768MB)

This one is easy. Nvidia's GeForce 8800 GTX not only beats ATI to market with its next-gen 3D graphics hardware, it also eliminates ATI's image-quality advantage in current-generation titles. Throw in its sheer horsepower, and Nvidia gives the high-end enthusiast every reason to make this purchase.

Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800
REVIEW

Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800

If you thought dual cores were over the top, get ready. Intel presents the Core 2 Extreme QX6700, a single CPU with four distinct processing cores. At $999, the first quad-core CPU will remain an enthusiast part for a while, but as a glimpse of the future, it's clear that clock speed is out and core counts are in.

ATI Radeon X1950 Pro
REVIEW

ATI Radeon X1950 Pro

If you're looking for a gaming card to run Vista and play most games, ATI's Radeon X1950 Pro will get you there, but not perfectly, and its real-world pricing is higher than we'd like. We're more interested to see ATI's next-gen cards use the newly refined CrossFire dual-card technology, debuted here, but that will have to wait.

REVIEW

Creative Xmod

The reasonably priced Creative Xmod does a remarkable job of making audio sound brighter, deeper, and more vibrant.

ATI Radeon X1650 Pro (dual link)
REVIEW

ATI Radeon X1650 Pro ( dual link)

We don't recommend paying even $125 for this new budget 3D card from ATI, but assuming you can find it for $100 or less, the Radeon X1650 Pro will meet your Windows Vista and basic gaming needs without overheating your PC or your wallet.

PNY Verto GeForce 7900 GS
REVIEW

PNY Verto GeForce 7900 GS

Featuring Nvidia's latest midrange GPU, the $200 PNY Verto GeForce 7900 GS offers a strong bang for the buck compared to its ATI rival. We recommend it if you are looking to play 3D games on an LCD monitor, aren't too concerned about sky-high frame rates, and won't be bothered if a next-gen replacement emerges in the coming months.

ATI TV Wonder 650
REVIEW

ATI TV Wonder 650

ATI's flagship TV tuner card offers the best image quality we've seen from a TV tuner card and includes over-the-air HDTV support, but it's still not as good as a direct cable-box-to-TV signal.
