  1. The final Friday of September is here, with a couple of items for you to check out. We have a look at the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti, featuring some improvements and modifications to the reference card, including in cooling and noise levels. Our other item for the day shows you how to convert audio and video files using VLC, since it's much more than just a media player.

For some more traditional RGB styling, there's a review of the Raijintek Iris 12 RGB Fans with their 120mm size and diffused RGB LEDs in the O-ring to give a stunning look. Oh, and those fans also have a remote to allow you to switch between the 20 different lighting modes.

  4. The final week of September is here, with several items for you to check out. We have another look at the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti video cards to really show off what they're capable of, as well as an overclocking guide to see how far they can be pushed.

  6. Yesterday, NVIDIA launched its new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti video cards. These new cards take full advantage of ray tracing technology to bring even more life to games, just it'll take some time before games are able to utilize it and the other new tech in the cards. It's certainly something to prepare you for the future, as these cards should be able to handle whatever you throw at it with ease, even at 4K resolutions. These cards are not cheap, however, as the RTX 2080 arrives in the $800 range and the 2080 Ti in the $1,200 range for the Founders Editions. There should be slightly more affordable versions from NVIDIA's partners, but just know that it's a big investment regardless. Now, time to see what these cards can do, so hit up the links below!

  7. Tuesday has arrived, with a couple of items for you to check out. We have a look at the AMD Athlon 200GE, an extremely affordable CPU running on the Zen architecture that could be perfect for those needing something cost and power efficient. Our other item for the day is a review of the Toshiba OCZ RC100 240GB SSD, which is a more affordable NVMe SSD that ditches the DRAM approach for Host Memory Buffer and a PCIe x2 instead of x4 interface for slightly slower read and write speeds that are still two to three times faster than SATA.

We have a review of the Patriot Viper RGB 16GB DDR4-3000 Memory Kit, which is compatible with plenty of RGB controllers from different companies, and even has its own program if you don't use any of them. For those after a new way to get into their games, perhaps the Cherry MX Board 5.0 and its MX Silent Red switches is for you. If you instead need something that enhances your audio, there's a look at the Creative Sound BlasterX G6 7.1 HD Gaming DAC and External USB Sound Card that supports up to 600-ohm headphones and Dolby Digital Decoding.

We have a look at the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X, featuring six cores and 12 threads for just over $200 that could be quite tough to pass up based on what it does in the review.
