Flagship GPU’s are always the envy of most gamers every generation. While a small percentage of the more deep-pocketed builds can snag them, most gamers end up a few notches down the scale in ‘mainstream’ category of cards. Unless you are chasing blistering frame rates at extreme resolutions on tomorrows games with maximum eye candy, you’ll probably appreciate that capabilities of a much more affordable GPU. Today, we’ll be checking it out and seeing what you can expect.
Peripherals are something every gamer drools over but rarely changes. Once you are used to something you use daily, it's hard to break away from that familiarity and muscle memory you’ve earned. Keyboards have been around longer than computers, and not much has really changed, so what does it take to motivate someone to take a leap of faith on new input devices? A few years ago, you might have been able to say ‘mechanical switches’ or ‘backlighting’ but it seems even the budget devices have that too. Unless yours has died and you just plain need a new one, it’s most likely going to be a combination of things you are looking for. Does ASUS have the right combination to win you over?
Whether you are an avid gamer or just the casual computer user a good keyboard makes a huge difference in performance. Either way, the Sandberg Hailstorm Mechanical Keyboard is one to put on your list. With its 104 key UK layout, custom lighting functions, and its personalized key settings you may just ignore the rest of your list.
Affordable and Extreme are not two words you often find in the description of any computer part at the same time. ASRock has done just that. Part of ASRock’s Extreme level line-up, the Z370 Killer SLI brings everything an enthusiast needs down to a price point anyone can afford. A High-Density Sapphire Black Glass Fabric PCB covered with premium components like 45A Alloy Chokes, Nichicon 12K Black Caps and Steel Slots for the main PCIe X16 slots. Is it possible to have a Killer motherboard and not kill your budget? We’ll find out!
While not the highest offering among the Enthusiast Gaming family of boards. The Gaming M7 position is arguably one of the most popular in the Lineup. It stands to Reason it would be one of the first to get the updates for AMD’s 2nd generation Ryzen processors, and today we get to look at MSI’s X470 Gaming M7 AC motherboard. To open up headroom for better overclockability, MSI doubles up on power delivery with a pair of 8-pin CPU power connections piped into the 14 phase VRM. Most of the favorites such as the twin drive Shield FROZR heatsink and Steel Armor protected slots return but let’s see what else MSI has under the hood!
Vigor. What is vigor? Vigor is being mentally and physically strong. Vigor is having the intensity and energy to win. And to win again. And again. That is the intention of MSI’s Vigor GK80 keyboard featuring Cherry MX RGB switches, dedicated hotkeys, and USB pass-through. MSI is no stranger to the world of PCs and accessories. Their product lines are wide and varied. Your whole set up could be entirely based off of MSI’s product lines. That is an awesome thing. No set up, whether completely kitted by MSI or a mixture of brands, would be complete without an outstanding top-tier keyboard that has the vigor to win….just like you.
With the seemingly constant releases of the next ‘best thing in gaming’, it's easy to forget that gaming only makes up a small portion of the PC world. While it doesn’t take much of a machine to check emails and check out pictures on social media, more than a few people make a living off of getting work done on a PC. When time is money, you need the best, and you need to get things done. With ASUS’s WS or Work Station line you can pack your system will all the power you need to get the job done.
With the recent launch of the 2nd generation AMD Ryzen CPU’s, it’s to be expected motherboards would get a revamp as well. Besides the new chipset, the beloved Crosshair Hero has undergone some significant tweaking, some aesthetic and functional, and some less obvious but very important. A pre-mounted I/O shield will be welcome and readily apparent, but an updated and highly optimized 10+2 phase VRM provides a cooler run and more powerful delivery system where it matters. With great updates where the rubber meets the road on usability and performance, coupled with AMD’s latest Ryzen processors, is there a reason to look any further than the Crosshair VII Hero? We’ll find out!
