    I subscribe to this.. Not a bad mag.. They have some good features and some of the lab reports are good. Their PSU review a few issues back wasn't to bad either..

    Wrong forum for this sort of discussion tbh.. ;)

    I was a subscriber for the first year, but I got really bored of a magazine filed with just gfx card and motherboard reviews that I had no need for.

    Yeah, it seems they have a mission to review every single motherboard released in the last 6 months.

    They also seem to have a habit of reviewing 3 or 4 of the same card by different manufacturers to fill up pages - I think in one issue they reviewed several 7800GTs with the only difference being the sticker on the HSF and maybe 10MHz core speed :rolleyes:
