We're still in the first quarter of 2012, but these few months have been a treasure trove for PC gamers. AMD has already launched six Radeon HD 7000-series cards, and this week NVIDIA has introduced its first 600-series product, the GeForce GTX 680.


It's a card many have been waiting for and our complete review is ready for delectation. We don't want to spoil the surprise, but it's well worth a read as NVIDIA now has the best GPU for gamers who crave the utmost performance.

But not everyone wants to spend £400 on a new graphics card, so for those of you on a tighter budget, we've also prepared reviews of two Radeon cards - Gigabyte's Radeon HD 7870 OC and PowerColor's Radeon HD 7870 PCS+.


Prefer to get your kicks the pre-built way? Then take a look at Scan's 3XS Performance GTX. It's one of the first turnkey systems to come equipped with a GeForce GTX 680 graphics card and it has the makings of a top-notch gaming PC.

Last but not least, if you're on the lookout for a power supply, we came away quietly impressed with the be quiet! Straight Power E9 680W.

In the news this week, Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system has been rumoured for an October 2012 release, Apple has announced plans to spend a few billion, Adobe has made available a beta of Photoshop CS6 and Game has officially gone into administration.

There's still time to enter our Iiyama competition - we're giving away a 24in multi-touch monitor - and you really don't want to miss our latest giveaway; we're giving one lucky reader the chance to win a GeForce GTX 680 graphics card.
