    You must be one of those techno-illiterate users. The Microsoft world has had quad core processors for months now, just as we are not limited to the outdated Radeon X1900 series of graphics cards. ...

    I guess I'm the odd one out. I would go for the 24" iMac. Large high resolution screens are awsome. It will be something you can appreciate everyday. If you aren't doing any really heavy work on...

    Intel's quad core (Kentsfield) is not a native quad core processor. It is nothing more than 2 Core 2 Duo dies on a single processor. While this is effective in giving you a quad core processor, it...

    The X1900 is a great video card. I ordered it the day they were released and have been messing around with it for quite a while. Nice upgrade from my 7800GTX.
