OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB Edition

Unless you absolutely need to have the fastest system and have a lot of money to spend, it would be wiser to stay with DDR2 system until the price has dropped. Vista system consumes quite a lot of memory so having 4GB of DDR2 would be a better choice than having 2GB of DDR3 given to the similar prices. That is why we see manufactures still produce fast speed DDR2. Today, we have probably one of the fastest 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 available from OCZ–the PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB Edition. Join us as we put it through the test and see how far can we push this pair of memory sticks. No related posts. Read More »

Honeywell 80 GB SecuraDrive Portable Drive

  When we at Bjorn3D are contacted by any vendor touting the merits of any new product we’ve learned through experience to take their words with a grain of salt.

XFX 9800GTX 512MB
