Hardware Roundup: Tuesday Edition

Nemo - November 3, 2009 05:06AM in Affiliate News

We have a full plate in front of us today so let's dig in. OCC welcomes Driver Heaven as our newest affiliate and the good folks there have a couple of reviews starting with the Corsair TX950W power supply. The AMD Athlon II X4 620 (also reviewed by OCC here) gets paired up with an AM3 785G motherboard from Sapphire over at Bjorn3D so see what it can do. Today's roundup also has a good mix of storage related reviews including a look at the Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB SATA 6 Gbps drive and an article on some of the initial speed bumps encountered on the road to SATA 6G.
