The architecture on the 580 is obsolete, hence the low prices. The 670 still should be regarded as a current gen card, as the architecture is current.

Now this is goin to give a heart attack for Radeon fanboys.
 Nvidia has just announced it is delivering much-anticipated price cuts to the GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 GPUs. The cuts are due to be active by 1pm tomorrow.
 the GTX 780 will drop from $649 to $499 and the GTX 770 from $399 to $329.


I'm neutral as in I go for the better card irrespective of chip maker. This time round it is clear victory for AMD. Cutting prices is actually accepting that they are now not competitive and they can do nothing but drop prices. Also the GTX 780 Ti is a desperate move.

What I am waiting to see is if Mantle can live up to the hype. If it does then NVIDIA is in deep trouble.

anyway , maybe i was the unfortunate person to receive two faulty sort of monitors :3
This can happen with any product. One customer had to replace two Asus Sabertooth P67 motherboards in the first year of purchase, the first board failing in the first month! On the other end of the spectrum, I know a person using a PC with a low end motherboard from Foxconn and a cheap PSU for over 5 years without a single issue ever.

On frames per second the i3 3220 may be better than a FX-6300, but overall gameplay in games like Crysis 3 will be a lot smoother on the FX-6300.

What I can advice you is that if you are serious about gaming, go Core i5. Get a cheap, good quality (solid caps, etc) motherboard to go with that.

From my experience, I would go Core i3 with a graphics card up to GTX 650 Ti. Any bump from there should accompany a bump to Core i5.

Don't consider anything above 4GB RAM if you are on a budget. 1333Mhz value RAM is actually fine. The difference going for faster memory is marginal and insignificant.

About the PSU, Raidmax has been in business for over 25 years. They have a good reputation worldwide. If your budget doesn't permit a premium PSU, you will be safe with a Raidmax. No worries at all there.

i do not y redline bring these crap, those psu's can run ur pc fine for a one or two years, but afterlife and after sale is not going to happen.

We never said Raidmax made great power supplies. We never had intentions when bringing down Raidmax to compete with top tier brands either. You can't pretend to not know how expensive the Corsair CX500M and the Antec HCG are despite being reasonably priced in the US. You guys know that we are not privileged enough to get the favorable prices given to the US by premium brands.

Raidmax, folks, isn't meant to compete with Antec or Corsair. It is a 4th/5th tier brand competing with brands like Cooler Master and In Win. At that level, they make some good PSUs for the money. And at Rs.7,500 the RX-500AF is a very good PSU for the money (4 eggs average on Newegg isn't something every other product achieves). Look at the other options at that price level. The only PSU that is better quality at that price level is the Antec VP450, but with the lack of 80+ certification, unbraided, shorter cables, 50W less power and only one 6 pin connector.

The RX-850AE is an excellent PSU too. The AE series may be blamed for overpromised efficiency, but we were impressed that it survived the strenuous testing by HardOCP when many PSUs from more popular brands failed.

Guys, when we make a call at Redline to stock a brand, we have a good reason to, so trust us and keep buying.

DIMO is the dealer for Mercedes Benz. But you don't blame them for bringing down the Tata Nano saying it is a crappy car. You just appreciate them for bringing something down for those who can't or are not willing to pay for the best. Same goes with us I hope ;D

XFX has stopped making nVIDIA
That is very old news. They started again as well. They made the GT 640 and GT 630. Now the talk is about XFX closing down completely. They used to give lifetime warranty in some markets but reduced to 2 years some time back.

I shared the following link below some time ago:


These rankings are one of the most coveted in the industry and is based on factors like quality, performance and enthusiast appeal.

For NVIDIA cards MSI was ranked #1 and Asus #2. For AMD cards Sapphire ranks #1 and XFX #2. Rumor has it that XFX might cease operations but nothing is official there. Regardless XFX has lost popularity recently. I expect the NVIDIA position to remain unchanged and MSI to take the place of XFX on the AMD front, making MSI #1 overall.

MSI makes some of the best enthusiast graphics cards out there, including the Power Edition, Hawk and Lightning variants. They are also making a major comeback in gaming oriented motherboards, and have become #1 in several markets for high end gaming laptops. So couple of years down the line they could establish themselves as the go to brand for gaming hardware.

The pcmech.com and xtremesystems.org information is outdated. Raidmax now sources their PSUs from Andyson, and didn't source from Andyson when the posts were done. So this information can't be used.

An interesting observation is that other popular brands in the local market like Cooler Master and In Win have very low rankings as well.

Our main motive in bringing down Raidmax is to give a good alternative to Cooler Master and In Win, after noticing that, despite a couple of quirks, overall reviews were better than competing brands.

It is a known fact that brands like Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, Silverstone and PC Power and Cooling are awesome. They are also pricey. Only reason Seasonic was within a comparable price range is because EGS brought them in OEM bulk packs, without any retail packaging or bundle. For those looking for a good PSU, the Seasonics without retail packaging are a very good option (when available).

So let's put things clear. Raidmax does not compete with Corsair or Antec. They compete directly with brands like Cooler Master, In Win and Aerocool. And they do a very good job at it, as reviews suggest. Raidmax PSUs have passed very stringent testing by reviewers like HardOCP while others in the price range failed. They are known to deliver their rated power. Also, noise and ripple are within acceptable limits and DC output quality is very good. So they pass all attributes of a good PSU.

For those looking for a very good PSU that can deliver the rated power but has budget constraints, Raidmax is for you. If you want the best in the business and are willing to pay the extra bucks, there's brands like Corsair and Antec.

Looks cool, but I find the location of the menu bar annoying. Freezing the menu bar on-screen is a great idea, but IMO, move it right to the top of the page rather than having a bit of the page visible above the menu bar.

A screen protector doesn't save your phone from cracks, only scratches. My kid smashed my One X screen while it had the screen protector on. A cousin dropped his Galaxy S II and the screen shattered. Despite its strength, Gorilla glass can break.

The DX is superior but is also more expensive. Currently you can find stock in SL of only the DGX, available for Rs.5,500 with 3 years warranty. If you want a DX, can offer a slightly used one for 9.5K with 2+ years warranty remaining.

Piledriver's been available for quite some time. I hear Crysis 3 makes proper use of those cores.

Just a correction, the EAST 1.2KVA line interactive UPS sells for just 9.5K with 2 years comprehensive warranty.

EAST is one of the largest UPS manufacturers in the world.
