You can kick off the new year with some light reading over at The Tech Report, who have compiled their final System Guide before CES kicks off. There will be a lot of new kit shown off at the show but most of it will not be immediately available and possibly priced outside your budget. The systems recommendations will change over the coming year so you can also consider this a shopping list of parts soon to be deprecated and discounted, though many will last throughout the coming year. You can expect an update of our own HWLB soon, as products are released to market.
"In this pre-CES edition of The Tech Report System Guide, we account for new products and price cuts in the entry-level graphics card market. We also examine the impact of Samsung's 960-series SSDs on the high-end storage market."
