The problem, of course, is finding a gaming headset that's both comfortable…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 12th July 2019

The Steam Summer Sale may be over for another year, but that doesn't mean the deals wheels have stopped turning. Oh no! If anything, there are even more deals going on now than ever. At least if you're still hunting for some good PC games deals, anyway. With Amazon Prime Day just around the corner, I haven't included any hardware deals this week, because at…

Nvidia extend RTX Super games bundle to all regular RTX graphics cards

When Nvidia first announced their RTX Super cards, they also unveiled a brand new game bundle to go with them. Whereas regular RTX cards only came with a free copy of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, anyone who decided to plump for one of their new Super GPUs, such as the RTX 2060 Super or RTX 2070 Super, would also get a free copy of Control on top.…

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

We're only just half way through 2019 and never before have I seen such a fierce fight in the world of best graphics cards. If the launch of two Nvidia RTX Super cards wasn't enough, we've also had the first pair of [block id="682017" title="AMD Navi"] cards arrive as well - all in the same week, no less. It's a mad old time, but to…

Nvidia RTX 2070 vs 2070 Super vs AMD RX 5700 XT: Which is best?

Over the last seven days, you might have noticed there have been a lot of new graphics cards shaking up our [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] list. First we had Nvidia's pair of RTX Super cards, the RTX 2060 Super and the RTX 2070 Super, and just a couple of days ago they were joined by AMD's RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT. Yesterday, I…

Logitech G Pro X review: Make way for our new best gaming headset

It had to happen eventually. After an incredible 18 month stint at the top of our best gaming headset list, the Steelseries Arctis 7 must now give up its throne to the brand-new Logitech G Pro X headset. What a thing this is. Not only is this a great-sounding gaming headset, but it's also incredibly comfortable and has arguably the best quality microphone I've ever…

Nvidia RTX 2060 vs AMD RX 5700: Which one should you buy?

It's all gone a bit Game of Thrones in the world of [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"]s this week. Having enjoyed a very comfortable stint on the 1440p Iron Throne ever since it rose to power in February of this year, Nvidia's RTX 2060 was just about to assure its legacy with the birth of the RTX 2060 Super card when AMD pitch up and…

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X review: The long-awaited Core i7 killer?

Earlier this week, I put together a list of what I think are the best gaming CPUs you can buy today. At the top end of the scale was Intel's Core i7-9700K, a £350 / $365 processor that, at least in my admittedly rather limited, non-water-cooled PC, was easily the fastest CPU for gaming that didn't cost an absolute fortune *cough*Intel Core i9-9900K, I'm looking…

Feature: But you probably still shouldn't buy it

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X review: Finally, some competition for Intel’s Core i9-9900K

Should you ever spend $500 on a gaming CPU? Personally, I think you'd be mad to spend that kind of money on a processor, especially when Intel's Core i7-9700K offers such incredible gaming performance for about two thirds of the cost. If you are one of these so-called power users with $500-odd to spare on getting the absolute bestest best gaming CPU money can buy,…

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT review: XTra is the new Super

Man alive, I was a bit worried about AMD's Radeon RX 5700 XT for a minute there. Not from a pricing point of view, you understand. Even before AMD did their unexpected Navi price cut on Friday, I was always semi-confident that this supposed RTX 2070 rival would be able to hold its own against Nvidia's RTX Super competitor simply by virtue of already being…

AMD Radeon RX 5700 review: Move over, RTX 2060

What a whirlwind week it's been over in [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] land. Just as we were getting all excited about the launch of AMD's Navi cards, Nvidia went and crashed the party with their pair of RTX Super cards. Offering superior performance for roughly the same price as AMD's Navi GPUs, it looked like it was curtains for AMD before they'd even had…

Shots fired as AMD cut price of Navi GPUs just before launch to combat Nvidia’s RTX Super cards

AMD's Navi cards are just over 24 hours away from release right now, but after having been gazumped by Nvidia's RTX Super graphics cards earlier in the week, AMD have just announced a little gazumping of their own in the form of an unexpected price cut for both the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT. How about that for a nice bit of friendly competition,…

Intel Core i5-8600K review: No longer the best mid-range gaming CPU

For years, Intel's Core i5-8600K has been the go-to gaming CPU for mid-range PC builders the world over. Try and find one now, however, and you'll see prices have soared way beyond its new 9th Gen [block id="637401" title="Intel Coffee Lake"] successor, the Core i5-9600K, and even AMD's upmarket Ryzen 7 2700 CPU. Is it still worth hunting one down? Here's wot I think.

Intel Core i7-9700K review: The best gaming CPU that doesn’t break the bank

Intel's Core i7 processors may not be the absolute cream of the crop any more thanks to the introduction of their new 9th Gen [block id="637401" title="Intel Coffee Lake"] Core i9 range of gaming CPUs, but I'll be damned if the Core i7-9700K still isn't one of the [block id="701123" title="Best gaming CPU"]s you can buy today.

Intel Core i7-8700K review: Get the i7-9700K instead

Here it is, the big daddy of Intel's 8th Gen [block id="637401" title="Intel Coffee Lake"] gaming processors. Once the six-core king of the bestest [block id="701123" title="Best gaming CPU"]s, the Core i7-8700K has since been dethroned by both its immediate 9th Gen Coffee Lake successor, the Intel Core i7-9700K, and Intel's new super duper Core i9-9900K. Both CPUs, however, are still relatively expensive compared to…

Best gaming CPU 2019: The top AMD and Intel processors for gaming

As we gear up for the launch of AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPUs on July 7th, I thought it was high time to take a look at all the best gaming CPUs they'll be going up against.

Intel's Core i5-8600K has been one of the top gaming CPUs ever since it came out at the end of 2017. Now, however, there's a new [block id="701123" title="Best gaming CPU"] in town in the form of its 9th Gen Coffee Lake successor, the Core i5-9600K.

Intel Core i5-8400 review: Still a great Ryzen 5 killer

When I first reviewed AMD's Ryzen 5 2600 and 2600X CPUs, I called them the Intel Core i5 [block id="637401" title="Intel Coffee Lake"] killers. Specifically, I said they were Intel Core i5-8600K killers - and to some extent that's still true. While not as fast as the Core i5-8600K when it comes to overall gaming performance, their lower price, bundled cooler and generally superior multi-tasking…
