I agree thats why I rarely use them for the news.

I've looked at it before-- I was confused by the scores at first, and then I noticed the little "cf" beside the high-scoring ati cards-- meaning that they're doubled up in crossfire--

I hardly ever use Toms for the news, Anandtech I have used for years.

Yeah true, but if you happened to follow this particular guide, I don't think you'd be steered wrong.

Gotta say I've been reading anandtech now for 4 years straight. If it's worth reading, it's bound to show up on Anandtech at some point.

I totally agree with ya, if it's worth reading it always finds it's way to Anandtech. I've also stumbled across some good reveiws at Elite Bastards.com. They always have a no bull no nonsense approach.
