REVIEW

Creative Sound Blaster X7

The Creative Sound Blaster X7 offers a ridiculous number of features for the money and sound quality is generally very good, but its appeal is limited.

Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition 965 / 3.2 GHz processor
REVIEW

Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition 965 / 3.2 GHz processor

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.

REVIEW

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 / 3 GHz processor

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.

REVIEW

BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra Overclocked graphics card

The BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra OC is clearly a high-performance video card, but the overclocked settings don't do much.
