Well well well Nvidia - what have you been up to? Well if you have been following hardware news recently - nvidia are king once again. Their gtx 680 has officially become the fastest single gpu graphics card money can buy. Reviews are positive with new technology, reduced power bills and improved performance across the board.

A good place to go for those building their first pc. So I have built about 4 or 5 pc's now and it has just sort of become an interest of mine to keep up with new components like graphics cards and prices on things like hard drives regardless of if im in the market to buy.

3D - why does the extra D tempt me so? So recently I have been looking at ways to "take the next step" with gaming. I have 24" monitor but i feel it doesnt quite do the awesome things going on my screen justice. BF3 for example - the graphics are beautiful and the battlefield vast but its all being squashed onto a flat 24" panel... not great.
