Video Cards, Mini-PCs, Wireless Mice and a Whole Lot More!
Well, the weekend may be just around the corner, but there's a lot of folks cranking out the reviews before it starts. There is a ton of stuff to go through today, so let's get down to business!
NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 and 6800 GT GPUs review @ Hexus.net:
"What strikes me most is the performance difference the entire range of product from both IHVs has over the outgoing generation of parts. They all make 9800XT and 5950 Ultra look very very silly indeed. Something for everyone from £200 upwards."
Shuttle's XPC SB81P review @ Hexus.net:
"It's unappealing with the GMA900 on-board video, so wait for PCI Express graphics cards to appear, pick your CPU and GPU poison, then definitely consider the SB81P as the host platform for those choices. Because if you can stomach LGA775 and PEG16X, it's good. Very very good."
Enermax Aluminum Multifunction Panel - Model "UC-A8FATR4 @ Club Overclocker:
"In 2001, Enermax introduced their line of cases to us all, and despite their questionable looks, they were kind of like the Edsel in being excellent cases, but perhaps a bit ahead of their time from their non-standard design, yet these cases provided the enthusiast more then what they needed including the price. Today Enermax continues to improve their component line-up with the debut of their multifunction panel, which not only has more features than any other multifunction panel around, but still controls your temperatures, and fan RPM's."
Thermaltake Xwing Bluetooth Wireless Optical Mouse Review @ Tweaknews.net:
"Now don't get me wrong, I know that this mouse is really not suited for everyday extended office use but is more targeted towards laptop users and/or Lanparty gamers that don't want to drag around the heavier corded version. This package is very small, very light weight and can be considered a small wireless optical version of your everyday run of the mill mouse.""Coming into this review I had high hopes for the AV8's overclockability, primarily because of the success I've had with the KV8-MAX3 and the NF7-S Rev 2.0. Luckily, I did not leave dissapointed. With our Athlon 64 3800 processor, we were able to achieve a stable overclock of 265MHz, an overclock that was 74MHz higher than what we were able to achieve with our MSI K8T Neo2-FIR board. We ran our Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness tests to see how the board performs when it overclocks."
Titan TWC-A04 Water Cooling System @ BigBruin.Com:
"The Titan TWC-A04 Water Cooling System is just a few final touches away from being a highly recommended product. Overall, I am very impressed with the fit, the finish, the performance, and the attention to detail on things like the water block bases, the secondary radiator, and the ease of use in or out of a case. In general, the components impress with their appearance, and their performance doesn't suffer for it."
Asus P5GD1 Intel 915P Motherboard @ the GamePC Labs:
"The board runs off the new Intel 915P chipset, but with a twist, as it allows the use of today's DDR-400 memory to be used instead of more expensive DDR2 memory modules. The board also features Intel's new High-Definition Audio and Matrix RAID technologies, and is one of the most feature packed "mainstream" motherboards we've tested to date."
nForce 2 Socket A Motherboard Round-up @ PC Perspective:
"With this in mind, let's put these four boards into perspective. Each motherboard has SATA RAID 0 and 1 compatibility, at least 6x USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire port, digital audio out through a coax connection, and 10/100 LAN connectivity. However what each manufacturer does beyond these bare features will determine what you should buy. So let's take a final look at these Socket A motherboards..."
ABIT AV8 K8T800 Pro Motherboard Reviewed @ VR-Zone Hardware:
"Coming into this review I had high hopes for the AV8's overclockability, primarily because of the success I've had with the KV8-MAX3 and the NF7-S Rev 2.0. Luckily, I did not leave dissapointed.

Well folks, that's a wrap for me! Have yourself a great weekend and I'll catch you back here next week!
