Feature: Just a shame about the price

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 review: Better than the GTX 1080

As graphics card launches go, it's probably fair to say Nvidia's new RTX cards have had a pretty terrible one so far. With concerns over their somewhat extortionate pricing and the continued lack of all those confirmed RTX games to really show what their magic Turing GPUs are made of, it's left both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti feeling like one big shoulder shrug…

Warframe: Fortuna graphics performance: How to get the best settings

Warframe's new Fortuna expansion is finally here, providing the perfect excuse for players old and new to dust off their Tenno armour and head out into the never-before-seen frozen wastes of Venus' Orb Vallis region. It's the second open world map that's been added to the game since last year's Plains of Eidolon update, but given the number of performance issues people encountered the first…

Feature: The key question

Best gaming keyboard 2018: Our top mechanical, membrane and RGB picks for PC

If you're trying to find the best gaming¬†keyboard money can buy for PC gaming, the best place to start is to ask yourself one simple question: do I want my keyboard to be a fast but noisy mechanical one, a cheaper, squishier membrane one, or do I want to cut out the cables completely and go wireless? All right, that was probably three questions rather…

Best gaming mouse 2018: Top wired and wireless mice

It's sometimes easy to forget about your mouse when you're already spending buckets of money on all your other PC peripherals, but finding that extra bit of cash for one of today's best gaming mice can bring with it a surprising number of benefits. Now I've used my fair share of bog standard mice over the years with just two main buttons and a scroll…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 9th November 2018

I hope you all enjoyed burning the effigy of a 412-year-old man who happened to be standing by some gunpowder beneath the Houses of Parliament last weekend. Now that I've finally washed the smell of bonfire out of my clothes, it's time to look ahead to that most joyous of November holidays, the deals-athon the end all deals-athons, Black Friday. Some retailers clearly didn't get…

Feature: Head in the clouds

HyperX Cloud Alpha review: Good looks and great sound (most of the time)

HyperX clearly have a thing about clouds - no, not that mopey JRPG chap, the real, white fluffy things you find in the sky. I had a good time with their wireless Cloud Flight headset earlier in the year, for instance, but since then the number of Clouds in their audio line-up seems to have grown exponentially. Today, I've got the Cloud Alpha, which is…

Finding the best gaming headset for you and your budget, however, can be…

Mad Catz unveil new series of RAT gaming mice to mark their return to PC peripherals

Mad Catz, the bankrupted-but-recently-resurrected maker of PC peripherals and console controllers for younger brothers and sisters, have announced their return to the world stage of PC hardware with the arrival of not one, but four new gaming mice, and they're all giant, hand-hogging RATs. Sorry, one sec, I just got a whiff of something awful. It smells like... cheesy feet? No, it can't be. Must…

Games are getting bigger and bigger these days, what with the many pixels and the updates and the patches and whatnot, so finding the best gaming SSD for your PC is absolutely vital if you don't want to go through the faff of re-installing everything all the time.

Asus ROG Strix GL12CX review: The Core i9, RTX 2080 monster PC

It's not often I have particularly strong feelings about PC cases, but man alive there's a lot going on with Asus' new ROG Strix GL12CX desktop. You've got your swishes, your slashes, your grilles and your grates, matt versus gloss versus RGB lighting, and even a full-blown chasm thanks to its hot-swap SSD bay. It's a lot to take in, but provided you can get…

Whether you're simply looking for a new screen or learning how to build a PC from scratch, a good monitor can be utterly transformative, whether it's a boost in image quality, refresh rate or resolution. The problem is that there are just too many of…

HP Omen Sequencer review: The king of keyboard volume rollers

HP Omen seem to be going all in on optical mechanical peripherals this year, as they've not only gone and stuck a bunch of light beams in their Omen Reactor gaming mouse, but their new Omen Sequencer keyboard is absolutely chock full of them. The idea is to give both of them lightning fast response times, as the lack of moving parts means that each…

Best graphics card 2018: Top GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

As we reach the halfway point of big blockbuster season, you may be starting to feel like your graphics cards is in need of an upgrade. After all, when you're chucking bigger, shinier and more demanding games at it, what was once a mighty card for 60fps at one resolution can suddenly start to feel a bit old and decrepit when it's faced with something…

Philips 276E9QJAB review: HDR-like colours with none of the fuss

A recurring problem I've had with HDR gaming monitors lately is that they don't seem to be able to do HDR levels of brightness at the same time as HDR levels of colour. Whether it's the ludicrously expensive Nvidia G-Sync HDR-enabled Acer Predator X27 or the cheap as chips BenQ EW277HDR, there's always been some sort of compromise involved. Sometimes it's due to a limitation…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 2nd November 2018

Remember, remember the 23rd of November, many savings, discounts and deals. I know of no reason why Black Friday season shouldn't be a right old steal. That's how the nursery rhyme goes, right? What's that? It's actually meant to be about fireworks and the 5th of November, describing the great gunpowder plot that failed to blow up the Houses of Parliament? You must have been…

Feature: Balancing act

HP Omen Reactor review: A great gaming mouse let down by its software

As all PC gaming cat owners know, mice cables somehow possess the same tasty properties as the tails and innards of their real life counterparts. I don't know what it is that's so mouth-wateringly delicious about long, thin wires, but man alive did my cats like chewing them when they were little. Thankfully, they've largely grown out of their cable-munching phase (if only because they…

HyperX Alloy FPS RGB review: Move over Cherry, it’s Kailh time

Cast your eye over our best gaming keyboard list and you'll find most, if not all, of my top mechanical picks are based around Cherry's excellent MX switches. That's probably not surprising given that Cherry are one of the biggest and most reliable names in keyboard circles, but HyperX's new Alloy FPS RGB makes a strong case for trying something a little bit different to…

Intel Core i9-9900K review: The fastest gaming CPU has arrived, but good grief the price

Since time immemorial (i.e: 2008), Intel CPUs have largely fallen into three distinct categories: you've got your entry-level Core i3s, your mid-range Core i5s, and your high-end Core i7s. With the recent introduction of Intel's new 9th generation of Coffee Lake CPUs, however, the processor giant has now expanded that range with a new Core i9 series, the first and most powerful of which is…

RTX 2080 Ti benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs MSI vs Zotac

Despite costing an arm, a leg plus a couple of kidneys, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080Ti has quickly established itself as the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] on the planet. If you've ever wanted to play games in 4K at the highest settings without the faff of gaffer-taping two GPUs together via SLI bridges and whatnot, the RTX 2080Ti is by far and away the best…
