You could store over a million songs on Seagate's 4TB hard drive.
A representative for Seagate dropped us a note today to let us know the company is now shipping what it claims is the industry's first and only 4TB hard drive to utilize 1TB-per-platter technology. According to Seagate, the four-platter design is a winning one that allows for the highest performance possible while doubling capacity and reducing costs, ultimately giving consumers the best of all worlds.
DRAM makers are shifting focus from desktop RAM to mobile memory.
Growing demand for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets is prompting memory chip suppliers to commit more capacity to mobile DRAM parts. With only so much capacity to go around, DRAM production for PCs is dropping, resulting in a sharp spike in contract prices. What all this means is that if you spot a good deal on RAM and are in need of an upgrade, go ahead and pull the trigger.
Now all Vector SSDs are eligible for OCZ's free game offer.
It has come to our attention that OCZ Technology is no longer limiting its free Far Cry 3 promotion to just the 256GB and 512GB solid state drive (SSD) models.

Meet the newest sub-$200 graphics card from Nvidia.
Sure, we'd all love to game on multiple top-shelf graphics cards, and while we're making a money-is-no-object wishlist, a toilet made of gold would be pimp as well. Most of us can't afford such luxuries, so we sit our backsides on porcelain and game on less expensive graphics cards. Luckily there are options, and if you have less than $200 to spend on a GPU, Nvidia hopes you'll consider its new GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost.
Some vendors are already offering Haswell parts for pre-order.
We're still about three months away from retail availability for Intel's upcoming Haswell platform, and that assumes there won't be any last minute delays or chipset SNAFUS like the one that plagued Sandy Bridge's debut. Nevertheless, some anxious vendors have already begun accepting pre-orders for Haswell, giving us an early glimpse into how the pricing will shake out this summer.
You can fit a 280mm radiator into Enermax's Fulmo ST chassis.
Enermax today dropped us a note to let us know it has a new flagship mid-tower enclosure, the Fulmo ST. Built with versatility and cooling in mind, the Fulmo ST has 32mm of clearance to hide your gnarly mess of cables in the back where they're out of sight and, more importantly, unable to impede the case's airflow. And if you're into water cooling, there's enough room on top to accommodate a 240mm or 280mm radiator, Enermax says.
GPU comparison website helps nail down the exact graphics card you're looking for.
Last week we gave you heads up about GPUBoss.com, a new website that offers to do for graphics cards what CPUBoss.com does for processors, which is make it easy to sort through the available options and compare different models from a number of criteria. You can actually choose from over 40 criteria to find the video card that best fits your needs, and can sort by price, brand, gaming performance, noise, power, and performance per dollar. It's a pretty handy website and it's now open to the public.
How much would you be willing to pay for an 8GB DDR3-3000MHz memory kit?
Give Corsair props for its new Vengeance Extreme 8GB dual-channel DDR3 memory kit consisting of two 4GB modules, which qualifies as the world's fastest rated PC memory at 3,000MHz. It also boasts latency settings of 12-14-14-36 at 1.65V, not bad for a kit of this caliber. Not fast enough? Corsair includes a Kingpin Cooling memory cooler for overclockers who want to use liquid nitrogen (LN2) to goose even faster frequencies out of these sticks. Let's talk price.
New website allows you to sort through graphics cards like a GPUBoss.
A couple of months ago, we were introduced to CPUBoss.com, a handy website that sought to make it easy to sort through and compare different processors. We thought it was an interesting concept, and apparently so did you -- the site now generates 15,000 visitors a day, we're told. But what if you're in the market for a graphics card? That's where GPUBoss.com comes in.
No hard drive maker has shipped more HDDs than Seagate.
After 29 years in the business, Seagate on Tuesday announced it is the first first hard disk drive (HDD) manufacturer to ship two billion HDDs. What's especially remarkable about the feat is that half of those shipments came within just the last four years. Seagate credits the milestone to "explosive demand" in mobile, cloud infrastructures, social media, business applications, and from being in a position to serve a variety of consumer markets.
