It's the time of day again for the hardware roundup. Starting over at TechARP, we have an update of the results for their x264 video encoding benchmark, but also an editorial about whether 64-bit Crysis is faster than it's 32-bit variant. The [OC]ModShop has posted an article about how media center PCs never have enough storage, a 'problem' known to many PC users these days. Going with storage, in case you are a laptop user and can't get enough of it, check out Western Digital's Scorpio 250GB being reviewed over at TweakTown. Moving onto cases, TweakTown also has the Thermaltake SopranoRS 101 and WingRS 100 on the review bench. Techgage also has the SilverStone Kublai KL01 Mid-Tower Case in testing. If you need a smaller HTPC case, the Virtual-Hideout might have the right case for you with it's review of the Antec Veris Fusion Black 430 Media Case. [H]ardOCP has a only-DDR3 motherboard in the testing system, the Asus P5E3 Deluxe, which is another addition to Asus' popular P5-series. As a PSU to go with that board, you could consider the Coolmax CUQ-1200B 1200W Power Supply, reviewed by PCStats.
