NVIDIA PureVideo Technology, PowerStream 600W PSU, and more!

"Between the two products you've seen here, Twinhan have covered all their bases for anybody wanting a straightforward device enabling them to view terrestrial digital television on their PC.

"Whether you have some extra money or gift cards from the holiday season and aren't sure how you should spend it or you just feel it's time for an upgrade, we have some recommendations for building a reliable Linux gaming workstation for only $1500 USD."
"OCZ has been getting a lot of attention from enthusiasts these days and there is a reason for that. First and foremost their power supplies are getting quite popular among PC users; we, ourselves, were very impressed with their PowerStream 520W power supply, which we evaluated a while back. Considering that PowerStream line of units was their first attempt into the market, OCZ is doing rather well. Now the company is back with a 600W flavor of their PowerStream power supplies."
