ASRock 939Dual-SATA2, Samsung 940B, and much more!
Hey folks, we're back! We had a bit of a busy weekend, but the news kept flowing so we're going to have a big post this morning. This hardly seems like news anymore, but the RIAA is at it again, this time going after a group of 757 downloaders. Another lawsuit has also been filed, however this time the RIAA is getting hit with some papers. Anyway, if your looking for some reading that doesn't involve courts, look no further...
"The ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 has a decent set of features supporting the 939 pin based Athlon64/Dual Core CPUs with dual channel memory controller as well as most of the new technologies like SATA2 and USB 2.0. You also get 7.1 channel audio and a 10/100 Network interface which is fine. Of course, the biggest feature of this board is support for AGP 8X and PCI-E x16 cards that can be utilized independent of each other or simultaneously."
"At first I wanted to get a cheapo radio just to get by. But YucA from the forums directed me to a site showing the mobiBLU DAH-1500i. It's a very small MP3 player in a cube casing. It measures about an inch on all sides, making it really small compared to other players. I like very small things, especially if they are functional. The DAH-1500i, despite its size, can hold a max of 1GB."
"High Def TV set sales are experiencing considerable growth in the Pacific Basin but for a change sales in the area lag behind those in the U.S. Europeans are certainly interested in high def big screen viewing and the set manufacturers and European retailers are convinced that the soccer World Cup will be the key decision point for many households."

"Trying to design a perfect system case for their highly successful 3D Galaxy Liquid Cooling system, Gigabyte made more than just a system case. 3D Aurora combines the best ideas in chassis design and ventilation, is suitable for building any kind of computer and boasts unique and exceptional characteristics."
"As noted in the performance section, there wasn't a single time I noticed a ghost or streak in well over 20 hours of gaming and about 5 full length movies that I managed to watch on this monitor. I honestly can't ask for anything else from a monitor than what the 940B offered."
