Best graphics card 2019: Top GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

Just when you thought things had finally calmed down in the world of best graphics cards, Nvidia goes and releases another one in the form of the GTX 1660. The baby sibling of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, its low price of £200 and its fast speeds mean it's now my new top recommendation for those after the best graphics card for 1080p gaming…

The Division 2 PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

The Division 2 is back, swapping the snowy streets and flaming bins of NYC for the sunny wildlife haven of Washington DC. Despite the first game's rocky start, it's since grown into one of the most popular 'always online' games of recent years, with its sequel promising more of what fans love instead of awkwardly trying to cater to the newcomer masses a la Destiny…

Nvidia GTX 1660 vs GTX 1060: Which is faster?

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is finally a thing that exists, and what a neat thing it is, too. Available from just £200 / $220, it's now pretty much exactly the same price as Nvidia's existing 6GB GTX 1060, which until now has been one of my top recommendations over in my [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] list as to what you should actually buy…

Nvidia GTX 1660 vs 1660 Ti: What’s the difference?

Nvidia finally lifted the lid on their new GTX 1660 graphics card yesterday, which is the baby sibling to their also recently-released (and newly-crowned best graphics card champ) GTX 1660 Ti. But what difference does that 'Ti' moniker actually make, and is it worth spending the extra £60 / $60 on it? To find out, it's time to look at some tasty graphs.

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 15th March 2019

It's been a grim week this week, but there were plenty of good things that happened over the last seven days that deserve celebrating. Hypnospace Outlaw came out! Baba is You came out!

Razer’s new budget Essential series are all still kinda expensive

Razer have announced a new budget-conscious series of 'Essential' peripherals today in the hope of bringing their popular Basilisk, Kraken and Blackwidow ranges of gaming mice, keyboards and headsets to even more people enamoured with mythological creature names than ever before - although judging by their actual prices, you'd be forgiven for thinking they're just as expensive as everything else.

PC Specialist Apollo R1 review: A GTX 1660 gaming PC for just £700

There's no denying the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is a great graphics card for £200 / $220. Offering 60fps speeds at High or maximum settings at 1080p, and Medium to High at 1440p, it's effectively replaced the 6GB GTX 1060 as my new best graphics card of choice for budget-conscious buyers. In terms of overall value, however, it faces stiff competition from the equally nippy…

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 review: Faster than a GTX 1060 for the same price

Well, that didn't take long, did it? Just three weeks ago, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Ti came crashing into our best graphics card list as our new champion for flawless 1080p gaming, and today sees the release of its non-Ti sibling, the regular GTX 1660. Priced at an even more palatable £200 / $220, Nvidia say this graphics card is primed and ready to replace…

Have You Played… Among the Sleep?

When I first heard about Krillbite's Among the Sleep, I was instantly intrigued. A first-person horror game from the perspective of a two-year-old toddler? Where and when can I play it? You see, I'm not usually very good with horror games. Matthew and I screamed ourselves silly when playing P.T, and I generally get quite stressed out when things are chasing me down dark hallways.…

AOC Agon AG273QCG review: 1440p G-Sync goodness, with a catch

Nvidia G-Sync monitors already cost an arm and a leg more than regular gaming monitors, but bump the resolution up to 2560x1440 and throw in a curved panel with a 165Hz refresh rate and you're looking at spending an arm and a leg plus both of your kidneys. All right, so £649 / $650 for AOC's new Agon AG273QCG isn't quite as bad as, say,…

Bloody Gaming B390 review: Oh dear…

A third tenkeyless gaming keyboard in a week? Well, I never. This time, it's Bloody Gaming's B930, which uses optical RGB switches not unlike the Razer Huntsman for even nippier keystrokes and reduced latency. Unfortunately, Razer's Huntsman could probably scoff the B930 down in a single gulp, for this is definitely not best gaming keyboard material.

Corsair K83 Wireless review: Your new lapboard replacement?

Wireless gaming keyboards can be great for decluttering your desk, and to a certain extent even a passable tool for playing games in the living room - provided you don't mind balancing a hard mouse mat on your knee, that is. There are, of course, also full-blown lapboards for those of us who'd rather kick back on the sofa than sit up at our desks…

Alienware AW2518H review: A great Nvidia G-Sync monitor with a 240Hz refresh rate

Ever since Nvidia announced they were opening up their G-Sync certification process to include a cut-down version of their variable refresh rate tech for AMD FreeSync screens at the beginning of the year, it's left proper, full-fat G-Sync gaming monitors such as Alienware's AW2518H in a slightly precarious position. After all, when G-Sync monitors often cost so much more than their FreeSync competition, why would…
