I work at Staples and we have a rack of magazines. I just take one and read it when I go on break so that I don't have to pay for it.

Informative reviews with out the company bias. Good Luck on that happening with some publications.
However I read PC Authority, and the monthy section i really liked is where they have set budgets of AU$1000, AU$2000 and AU$4000 dollers for a computer. And they try to build a computer and max out the specs (with out OCing) and still keep close as possible to that budget. It's rather informative as I helped me gauge out on what people are looking in on a computer when they that money to spend, and no clue how to spend it.
And this can be a challenge when people are ready to spend anything beyond AU$1500 on a computer.

A centerfold in the middle page of some nekkid chick holding a nVidia 7800GT would be nice.

Huh? I said I would pay $300-500 for a computer. So yeah, I'm not in the market for a gaming PC at this point.
