Nvidia 8600 review

14 12 2008

For a while now I have been using the Nvidia 8600 on my main desktop PC and it’s been working out wonderfully. The graphic card can handle very high end games with not a lot of trouble depending on how much memory the card has, this particular card has 512mb of memory and I’ve been playing games on high performance for quite a while now and I’ve had no problems at all.

When I first booted up a game moving from an Intel chipset I found the change was not only amazing but it was mind blowing! Instead of the lag I was getting when scrolling maps and designing things when I used the Intel Chipset I was now getting no lag and I was on top graphics, there was no more of that pathetic two coloured water and poor looking trees, it was now water that looked astounding and trees that sway in the wind that give games an “alive” feel. The change was nothing less of astonishing.

I was extremely happy with the Nvidia 8600. It was easily installed, gave my gaming life a real uplift, and was defiantly what I was looking for. I recommend this graphic card to people who are looking for smooth gaming and a good time on their computer. I really enjoy using this graphic card on my computer and there aren’t a lot of cards out there that I prefer to this one.

Thanks for reading all, Have a good one.

Wal-Mart Selling the iPhone Confirmed

8 12 2008

10-15-07-iphone1It has been confirmed that Wal-Mart will sell the iPhone towards the end of December, but it is still unknown whether Apple will sell the previous iPhone for $99. Employees in many Wal-Mart stores are going through training detailing how they are supposed to sell the iPhone. In a note on december fifth Shaw Wu, an analyst for Kaufman Brothers in San Francisco, said “One of the key things Apple needs to do to drive broader iPhone adoption is to build a more complete product line” with low- end, mid-range and high-end products. So Shaw Wu is basically saying that Apple needs to make a low-budget iPhone, a standard iPhone, and then the high end iPhone. Just as Apple did with the iPods you got the Shuffle, Nano, Video, and Touch. As of right now I don’t have an iPhone, but if it’s going to cost $100 I know I will be getting one. Would you? Comment.





$99 iPhone Coming to Wal-Mart

There lately have been rumors that Wal-Mart might start selling the iPhone for only a measly $99 with a two year contract. But don’t get too excited because this iPhone will be the original one that Apple first came out with so the iPhone will only have 4GB of space and it won’t have 3G connectivity. But as of now this isn’t 100% positive but if Apple goes through with this then they’re going to control a lot of the mobile industry and will this be the end for Windows Mobile smartphones? Or will it spark up completion which will force other companies such as Google to lower their price on the G1? What do you think? Comment.
