    Hmm..
    Bit-Tech and other modding sites (Overclockers, etc.) are great for new hardware.

    Or, if you're a real nerd you can subscribe to a nice mag and just read up ;)

    A mag which is two months out of date and pretty much states what's been discussed on tech sites way before? :worried:

    Yeah, mags are a waste of money tbh. Bit is pretty good for new stuff, it gets most of the important stuff.

    Wow, i'm surprised not one person has mentioned digg or slashot...

    http://digg.com
    http://slashdot.org

    For reviews i pretty much just type the part into google and find a whole different sites. Its better to look at 5-10 reviews than one, so its easier this way.

    I don't care for 'pc' news as in hardware, but tech news I hit up slashdot, the register and google sci/tech news.

    I'll let you off cause you have 4 posts and dont know any better.

    I read H only cause they have a "complete no BS approach". I cant say I ever read their results though.

    If I wanna know stuff, I just ask Tim or post in hardware. :p

    For price checks on parts just look around at scan, ebuyer, tekheads, dabs, whoever you noramlly get stuff from and see who's cheapest.

    As well as online stuff I get PCPro as it always has loads of interesting articles and columns.
