Asus ROG XG Station 2

Nine years after it launched the XG Station external graphics card, ROG decides it's time for an upgrade: the VR-capable XG Station 2. Better late than never, right?

AMD A8-3850

We recommend the AMD A8-3850 to mainstream desktop PC users in search of capable gaming power and multithreaded application performance.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows

The Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver lets you use wireless Xbox 360 peripherals with your Windows PC, but it won't be a must-have PC gaming peripheral until more compatible games are available.

ATI Radeon 9700 Pro

ATI's new card is currently the fastest around, and for some, that will be enough to justify the $400 price.

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.

Xitel Pro HiFi-Link

If you don't mind stringing a wire from your PC to your stereo, the Pro HiFi-Link's sound quality shines.

Plextor PX-HDTV500U Mini Digital HDTV Receiver

The Plextor PX-HDTV500U Mini Digital HDTV Receiver provides a cheap and easy way to watch and record HDTV on your PC. We recommend this compact tuner and antenna kit particularly for laptops that feature Microsoft's Media Center app.

AMD Athlon 64 FX-60

The latest high-end chip from AMD introduces dual-core processing to AMD's ultra-high-end enthusiast FX line. But while the Athlon 64 FX-60 set new records on our current benchmarks, the chip doesn't play well with Nvidia's graphics cards. Assuming that this issue gets sorted out, the FX-60 shows great promise.

AMD Athlon 64 FX-62

AMD's Athlon 64 FX-62 helps usher in the new Socket AM2 chipset, but incremental performance gains make AMD look vulnerable to Intel's next-gen chips, due later this year.

eVGA e-GeForce 6200 TC

If you're looking for a cheap way to add dual-monitor support, eVGA's e-GeForce 6200 TC will hook you up. But stay away if you need 3D power.

ATI Radeon 9800 XT

iSocket Systems iSocket 3G

This plug is smart enough to know when its outlet doesn't have power, and uses cellular signal to keep you informed.

PNY Verto GeForce 7800 GT 256MB

With a couple of exceptions, PNY's Verto GeForce 7800 GT card provides everything we like to see from a 3D-card package, including fast performance.

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.

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 6800 GT OC AGP, 256 MB

Overclocking gives the BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC a slight performance boost over comparably priced stock 6800 GT models, but you'll have to supply your own games.

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.

XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB, GDDR3

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.
