PC Graphics Card Showdown: NVIDIA Versus AMD

The hardest part of building a PC is picking the parts, especially when everyone around you seems to have an opinion. And no flame war is more prevalent than the NVIDIA snobs vs the AMD fanboys. What’s really going on with these two companies, and which card should you get?

Ask Gizmodo: Should I Upgrade My PC Piece By Piece, Or All In One Go?

Dear Gizmodo, My current desktop is on its last legs and I’m looking at upgrading. I bought it in 2008, so it’s definitely time to move on! The problem is I’m on a very tight budget. I was wondering if you had any advice on whether I should upgrade my components in increments, or try to save up and buy the whole thing in one go?

Ask Gizmodo: Which 4TB Hard Drive Should I Buy?

Hi guys, I really need to buy a new hard drive — but I am torn between the choice of a WD Black 4TB which is currently $309 on PC Case Gear or a Toshiba 4TB, which unfortunately they have stopped selling but other sites I think still do. However Toshiba also have the X300 series but I haven’t found any reviews on them. I was wondering if possible if you could do a comparison on them regarding performance and their pricing. Cheers, Peter

Graphics Card Battle 2015: Nvidia Versus AMD At Every Price Point

You might say 2015 hasn’t been the most exciting year for graphics cards, though in many ways it was more eventful than 2014. The only big highlight last year was the arrival high-end Maxwell GPUs in the form of the GeForce GTX 980 and 970. Then this year Maxwell did what many thought was impossible: becoming considerably faster.

Cheap PC Parts Giant Newegg Is Now Shipping To Australia

In Australia, we’ve never enjoyed the luxury of one big central online store to buy PC parts like monitors, RAM, CPUs and motherboards. In the past if you wanted to build a system, you’d have to do a lot of shopping around, looking for the best prices on StaticIce and PCPartPicker. Until today.

US online tech retailer Newegg — it’s like Amazon for computer parts, with competitive prices and a massive range in stock — is now shipping from Australian distributors to Australian addresses, and its prices even look pretty damn competitive.

Ask Gizmodo: What Blu-Ray Burner Should I Buy?

Hi Gizmodo, since January of this year I’ve been looking to buy an external Blu Ray burner so I can burn Blu-rays and DVDs to watch on my TV. And some music for my friends to expand their horizon. Every site has their own top 10 and all are different. I’ve researched hours and hours to come up with nothing — it’s now October and I’m still in the same place I was 10 months ago. I’m not looking for the greatest, and at the same time I don’t want to spend 20 bucks on a piece of junk. Unless that junk is actually a bargain. I was thinking around the 70-80 dollar range. If there’s something solid for a little less that would be great to. I’m on an iMac that’s only a year old — so it’s not an outdated paperweight. Please, anything you can do to help would be amazing. Thanks, Chris.
