AV component review site

Does anyone know of a good AV review site other than AV forums? I'm finding it hard to find a centralized site to compare diffrent pieces of gear and get their specs.

Thanks

Thanks everyone for giving your advice, It seems the best thing to try would be to go without it for a while and then try and find one to test.

But it seems i can use it fine without at least.

Thanks

Need some folding Advice

Hi there, i've seen a large drop in my folding preformance when i started out with my new comptuer (Q9450) I was seeing about 1500 PPD from it, but lately its only doing about 600-700 PPD and i dont know why it has changed.

Does anyone have any ideas that come to mind off the top of your head?
