Hardware Roundup: Monday Edition

Nemo - July 12, 2010 05:02AM in Affiliate News

We open up the week with a brief set of articles as it looks as if most reviewers' attention was drawn to the release of the NVIDIA GTX 460 graphics cards. Taking a look at motherboards we have a pair of reviews covering X58 chipset boards from Gigabyte and ASUS. For backup and extra storage in a portable format we get a chance to check out the Seagate FreeAgent Go offering 500GB of space. Not all applications require a big power supply and for a mATX HTPC application the Seasonic SS-300TFX may be just what the doctor ordered.
