Tutorial: How to create a Windows rescue USB stick

CNETAnalysis: Anyone who’s been on the receiving end of a PC disaster can testify to the pain that they can cause, and recovering from a major crash can be a long and difficult process. The beauty of Windows is that it can be fixed with an installation disc, which can work all kind of wonders with your PC – just stick it in your optical drive and reboot your machine. There’s a problem, though – PC manufacturers don’t generally like giving away copies of Windows with their machines, so if a shop-fresh system goes wrong, you’re not only stuck up a proverbial creek without a paddle, but you’re going to have to spend an enormous amount of effort getting out of it. Rescue discs Windows has a function that lets you make a rescue disc, which performs the wonders of the installation CD when things go wrong. The default way to do this is to use a blank CD, which is all well and good, but copied CDs are pretty open to getting scratched and not reading properly, and you’ll need to fork out for …

Buying Guide: Top graphics cards for 3D gaming: 8 reviewed

CNETAnalysis: Stereoscopic 3D might seem straightforward, but you’ll need a lot of boxes ticked if you want to enjoy it on your PC. As well as a 3D-capable monitor with a refresh rate of 120Hz, your computer needs a graphics card that’s powerful enough to handle 3D content. To generate 3D images, the graphics card has to produce the graphics twice, creating a slightly different image for each eye. This extra workload can put a lot of strain on the card. Most modern cards include 3D capabilities – especially recent Nvidia cards, which support Nvidia 3D Vision – so finding one that can display 3D content isn’t a problem. The trick is finding a graphics card that can display 3D without any noticeable drop in image quality. You don’t want to spend money on a card only to find that the frame rate plummets when you turn on 3D effects, leading to choppy, stuttering movies and unplayable games.

The poor things, it seems such a shame. One of the big advantages of the PC is that you can upgrade easily – or so it’s sold by the industry at large. Surely you can take an old machine and, by adding extra kit here and there, turn it back into something worthwhile? What should you upgrade first? Can you just throw a half-decent graphics card into an old rig and make something of it? Can cast-off PCs be made back into useful members of the gaming community? Now, enter our base system on which we’ll be experimenting. From the dusty recesses of the office, we unearthed a rather neglected desktop. Inside, we had a 2.11GHz AMD Sempron chip coupled to a 512MB Sapphire HD 5550 graphics card and 1GB of RAM, all plugged into a Biostar MCP6P-M2 board and running Windows XP from a 160GB IDE drive. Even in its day it wouldn’t have turne…
