      "I love playing games on my computer, but it can be a hassle knowing just how well games will play. Enter Futuremark. Just tell it your CPU and GPU, and it'll tell you if you can run a game. It gives you minimum vs recommended, so you'll know just what to expect when you install a new game."

      "It's so useful to have a tool like Game Debate because it can be hard to determine if certain games are on certain consoles. I was able to figure out if I could play a game I really wanted to on my PC--and though it turned out I couldn't, it was awesome to be able to check it so quickly and easily."

      "Speccy is a great service that combines several things that I have found myself needing lately. Offering detailed info on my hardware so I don't have to look it up each time or even open up my tower case is very nice. The temperature monitors are also very handy. Speccy combines these into a single easy to use program."
