Crucial Radeon 8500LE Video Card Review

PC Stats has just done a review of the Crucial Radeon 8500LE video card.

Crucial is not a name you would normally associate with videocards, but they are trying their hand in the market and if all goes well we could be seeing some very cool stuff from them... after all, they control what kind of micron memory goes on the cards! Crucial have teamed up with ATI and Sapphire Tech to produce the Crucial Radeon 8500LE 128MB. With the 8500LE Crucial are squarely targeting mainstream consumers looking for a no-nonsense & economical videocard to extend the life of existing computer systems. In that sense, the priorities of the consumer invariably turn to problem free installation, and knowledge that service and support from the company are there should anything go wrong.

These Antec LED Fans add a personality to your case, are quiet and functional all at the same time. This fan spunk will cost you a little more than a standard fan; however, these fans are a very welcome change.
