PC World GPU Roundup 2008

One of my mates over at PC World Denmark recently reviewed no fewer than twelve of the latest graphics cards, ranging from the GeForce 9600GSO to the Radeon 4870X2. All the cards have been put through some rigerous testing, struggling through three screen resolutions and up to seven games, and there are even added calculations which show where gamers will find the best FPS price/performance ratio.


The overall conclusion is that the ATI Radeon HD 4830 is the best buy, where as the GeForce GTX 280 is the winner. Normally one would suspect that title to be that of the Radeon 4870X2, yet the GeForce GTX 280 is both cheaper and much more power-efficient (as well as less noisy) as the current most extreme graphics card, the Radeon HD 4870 X2.

High-end Liquid Cooling

Although I’ve got a phase-change unit, I’m not necessarily running the compressor every day. And that’s mostly due to the fact that my current liquid cooling system easily manages running the Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 at about 4.7 GHz. My liquid (water with additives) cooling system features some quite excellent performance levels at a minimum of noise!

The system comprises of the following units: a Laing DDC Pro (18W) pump station, a 250mm alu XSPC reservoir, a Hardware-Labs Black-ICE GTX360 and an EK Surpreme (Acetal top). Add to that some 3/8″ ClearFlex tube, three 120mm Sharkoon S.E.2000 fans and Feser One VSC additives.

If you’re looking to build a liquid cooling system yourself, have a look at CoolerKit Denmark. That’s where I usually buy all my stuff; great customer service and fast, reliable shipping. Thumbs up!
