    What are your favorite hardware review websites? I thought it would be good to have a list of good hardware review sites to check, so list yours.

    My favorite ones are:
    http://www.bit-tech.net/
    http://www.tomshardware.com/

    Feel free to list ones you frequent, even if they're well-known. The more variety of good sites, the more evidence we have to check on the quality of components.


    Also can someone fix the title? Thanks.

    He has the best heartfelt and honest reviews out there. He can't tell a lie. However, he's not reliable for things like FPS benchmarks. Everything else is the best there is, mostly.

    I usually go to Bit-Tech, and I'm currently subscribed to their partner CustomPC magazine.

    I find hardware.fr gives some pretty comprehensive insightful reviews and google translate manages pretty well with languages closely related to english the way french is.

    www.techpowerup.com post articles and news from all around the web and collect and summarize reviews from dozens of sites every day, it's my no1 go to stop for all things computer hardware.
    They do their own reviews too, and very good ones at that, but not very often.

    I like Notebookcheck's laptop GPU reviews, there's generally a lot of information and benchmarks laid out nicely.

    Tom's Hardware has the excellent monthly Best Gaming CPU For Your Money and Best GPU For Your Money articles that I use a lot when throwing together builds for people.

    Latin-based and with nearly identical grammatical structures and conjugation rules. Compare to, say, Mandarin, etc.

    Both are probably not much use to most here on Facepunch unless you're Dutch.

    English a Germanic language.

    Edited:

    Also since when did we conjugate verbs like Latin languages at all?

    Technically it is, but it has a lot of Latin in it.

    'Big' is Germanic, 'Large' is Latin. etc

    We use a lot from both.

    Pretty much what the name says except they go into crazy detailed depth with their reviews.

    Yeah, it's a pretty good site. He gets a bit weird once in a while, but that is probably to be expected.

    What do you mean by that? It sounds as if it'd be funny

    http://www.anandtech.com/ because it gets really deep in to the tech - but they don't do so much pc parts benchmarks as tech analasys of all sorts.

    Swedish tech news. They mostly have tech news, and some really high quality reviews

    http://www.overclock3d.net/ is probably the best site for reviews.
