Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


iBUYPOWER Review Hardware Impressions

Posted on Tuesday, November 29 @ 15:54:17 PST by

The console generations are dragging on longer and longer as publishers and developers continue to pump out profitable games and hardware manufacturers are letting the slow economy make their machines profitable over a long period of time. That means one thing.

The PC is back.

There have been more than a few games where a clear advantage was found on the PC platform in the past 6 months and the new, wild frontier known as digital distribution continually makes the console peasants jealous at low, low prices on tons of great games. Even the indie space is expanding by banding together into Humble Bundles and the like.

That's when iBUYPOWER stepped in at the 11th hour and dropped some fresh review hardware on the doorstep of the GameRevolution compound. It's definitely a massive step up from our previous rig and an even bigger step from my MacBook Pro.

Complete with one the latest Intel i7 Sandy Bridge processor and the Asus X79 motherboard to match, everything loads at lightning speed. Pairing that power with 16GB of DDR3-1600 RAM and an SSD means Windows and any games we've installed on the SSD pop right up after launching them.

Once the game loads, the GeForce GTX 590 absolutely mangles everything I've thrown at it so far. I'm going to keep experimenting with the games I picked up during the Autumn Steam Sale for our full review of the iBUYPOWER hardware at our compound.

Got suggestions? What PC games do we need to play to put this beast through its paces?
