What's that you say, you're not building a $16,000 Dream Machine or a rig that rivals the Large Pixel Collider with four GeForce Titan graphics cards stuffed inside? Fair enough, we can't blame you for going the sensible route when nagging little things like a mortage and sending the kids to college eat away at the budget. And if you're not building a monster-sized system, then you probably don't need to overspend on a PSU with enough wattage to light up the state of Texas. Still with us?

It's easy to take for granted the parts that we put inside our PCs, but have you ever stopped to wonder about what's involved to build each piece? The manufacturing process of different components is rather fascinating, though for one reason or another, we rarely catch a glimpse of how it's done. Many of the factories are overseas, which presents a logistics problem for inside looks, and some companies are super secretive with their operations. However, Kingston allowed the folks at GamerNexus to take a look at how RAM and SSDs are made, and if you're a fan of technology, it's a must-read article with accompanying video.
Click! Click! Click! Hear that sound? It's your mechanical hard drive going bad. Your first order of business is to backup your precious data -- you know, saved games and the such. And secondly, swap it out with a solid state drive (SSD) STAT! No need to dial 9-1-1-, just click to take advantage of today's top deal for a Samsung 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5-inch 250GB SATA III SSD for $175 with free shipping (normally $190 - use coupon code EMCXNXM22).

Is that a 1TB flash drive in your pocket or...oh, it IS a 1TB flash drive!
Psst, hey you. Yes, YOU! Take a look at that thumbnail picture over there. Do you see it? Groovy, but do you know what you're looking at? Well, yes, it's a flash drive, but not just any flash drive. That just happens to be the world's largest USB flash drive. It's the Kingston HyperX Predator, and it holds a whopping 1TB of data, which is more than most Ultrabooks. Pretty crazy, right? Come closer and we'll tell you more.
It's too bad for Kingston there's not an award for 'Best DDR3 RAM Memory Name', because if there was, the company's new Predator modules would be a shoe-in. And then wouldn't it be awesome if Corsair or another competitor came out with an Aliens system memory line? Ah, but we digress. Killer name aside, Predator represents the newest addition to Kingston's HyperX memory family, and it takes direct aim at "extreme enthusiasts and overclockers," the company says.
In a perfect world, solid state drives would cost less than mechanical hard drives. Not just the small capacity, low performance SSDs either, but the beefier drives with fast read and write transfer speeds and big IOPS. We don't live in a perfect world, of course, so we have to settle for reasonably priced high performing SSDs, like Kingston's new SandForce-driven HyperX 3K line.
A high performing solid state drive at a reasonable price is something every enthusiast wants, but they're harder to find than a needle in a mountain of hay. Kingston believes it's found that balance with its new SSDNow V+200 line. Featuring a SATA 6Gbps interface and SandForce's SF-2281 controller technology, the SSDNow V+200 offers some serious speed for "performance minded yet cost-conscious business or home users," Kingston says.
When you build a high-end rig, you want it to look good inside and out – what good is a case window if the cables inside are a cluttered mess? Kingston’s appealing to the inner PC perfectionist in all of use with its new line of HyperX Red Limited Edition Memory. Kingston went ahead and redesigned the HyperX LoVo low-voltage modules while they were busy tinkering, too.
