It's Monday already? Yeah, I guess so. Well, that just means more news for you guys :) If you've been shopping around for a new motherboard recently, then take notice! Dave has reviewed the ASUS A8N Premium motherboard. ASUS has long been know for their quality products, but will the board live up to the "Premium" name? Only one way to find out...
"So, Asus did what we've been hoping many others in their competitive arena would do, take what is an already killer nForce 4 SLI for AMD based design and make it better. Better you say? How so? Let's take a collective look at the new Asus A8N SLI Premium and help you decide if it's better than its predecessor the A8N SLI Deluxe. "Deluxe", "Premium", it all sounds good but is the second gen product better? Judge for yourselves in the pages ahead."
"Therefore, we've had no problems recommending EVGA to those of you with strict budget guidelines. After evaluating its 6800 PCIe graphics adapter late last week, today we'll take a look at EVGA's 6600GT. Though we don't hope to see a significant increase in performance at stock speeds, we do have a keen interest in the card's overall value in terms of its retail cost."
"Soltek is one of the manufacturers that has picked up the VIA K8T890 chipset. While the nForce 4 has captured most of the product territory on the high end VIA has a long history of making chipsets. To see how this latest version stands up we will look at the enthusiast class K890Pro-939. First lets look at the specs to see what we are dealing with."
"The GBII is one of the coolest and best-looking cases I've seen hit the market in a long time, and from looks alone, you wouldn't know it was related in any way to the original GB. From the feature list, it seems to be one of the most practical and user-friendly cases too. I'll have to dig deeper into that, though, later in this review."
"One thing that is extreme about the KN1 is the price - extremely low that is. The KN1 is a fully featured NFORCE4 Ultra motherboard, and retails for under $100. Join us as we discover how it performs against other NF4 and VIA boards, and if it really lives up to the "EXTREME" name."
"The 200GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 SATA NCQ drives earn praise for several reasons. The results from the various tests show that this generation of drives provides a performance boost over the previous generation, whether the system is capable of implementing NCQ or not."
