AMD Phenom X4 9850 (2.5GHz)
REVIEW

AMD Phenom X4 9850 ( 2.5GHz)

AMD's new Phenom X4 9850 is overpriced and outclassed compared with its Intel-based quad-core competition. If PC vendors can use this chip to make cheap systems (as they did with older Phenoms), we might have nicer things to say, but as a DIY part at this price, we can't recommend AMD's latest quad-core CPU.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+
REVIEW

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+

AMD's new high-end dual-core CPU offers plenty of bang for the buck, outpacing Intel's Pentium 965 Extreme Edition, which costs $200 more. Sounds like a good deal, but wait to see what Intel's next-gen Core 2 Duo chips have to offer when they debut later this year.

ATI All-In-Wonder X1900
REVIEW

ATI All-In-Wonder X1900

If you're looking for a single high-end 3D card, the Radeon X1900 XTX shows a lot of promise. If you have dreams of upgrading to a dual-card configuration, stay far, far away.

ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
REVIEW

ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

If you're looking to build a home theater PC, we recommend ATI's Radeon HD 2600 XT as the midrange card to use, thanks to its nearly perfect HD video image and its no-fuss installation. But for 3D gaming, you'd be much better off looking for a good deal on a faster, older graphics card.

AMD Phenom 9600 (2.3GHz)
REVIEW

AMD Phenom 9600 ( 2.3GHz)

AMD's new Phenom quad-core CPU has little to recommend it over competing chips from Intel. The Phenom is marginally less-expensive, but not enough to make up for its subpar performance. Unless AMD drops prices more aggressively, it looks like Intel will maintain its grasp on the CPU market for the foreseeable future.

ATI Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition

Quirky Pivot Power Genius

This power strip is smart, but "Genius" might be pushing it. Even though it has only one socket, for now we still prefer the Belkin WeMo Switch.

Intel Core i7-965 Extreme Edition
REVIEW

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.

XFX GeForce FX 5950 Ultra

The XFX GeForce FX 5950 Ultra graphics card is one of the fastest we've seen, but you can get nearly the same performance for around $100 less.

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.

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.

REVIEW

PNY Verto GeForce 7900 GTX Limited Edition ( PCI-E, 512MB)

PNY's highest-end 3D card is overclocked and comes with a few helpful accessories. We just wish that it included a game or two, as a $500 graphics card isn't very useful if you don't have anything to play with it.

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850
REVIEW

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850

The quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6850 keeps the desktop CPU performance belt tied firmly around Intel's waist at a price that helps offset the lack of sizable performance gains. New products at the end of the year may outclass this new chip when they arrive, but for now, the QX6850 reigns supreme.

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.

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.

Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT

We've given plenty of coverage to the priciest, highest-end 3D graphics cards, but what about 3D for the rest of us? Nvidia's new midrange GeForce 6600 GT card delivers respectable game performance for roughly $200--significantly less than the $400 and $500 6800-series cards.

Targus Universal Notebook Docking Station with Video

The Targus Universal Notebook Docking Station with Video would be a winner if the VGA-over-USB experience were more fluid; however, video performance is so poor that we'd wager most people won't use it.
