"The SN25P is an NFORCE4 PCI-E solution for Socket 939 CPUs. When you see how much they have crammed into this SFF, you would be amazed. It has everything you could ask for from a full tower system, in a tiny package that can be carried around."
"The first thing you will notice about the Joybee is its odd name, but BenQ has a history of bringing products with names that really make no sense. Then again, the Joybee is a unique player and may very well suit its name. The Joybee is the smallest portable audio player offering from BenQ. The player itself is a small and rather stylistic product that will more than likely impress those who are looking to adopt this in their daily lives. In fact, it comes in three colors (purple, green and orange) and may even match with quite a few clothing items. This could be an added bonus to a selected few."
"The HIS X850 XT IceQ II Dual DVI VIVO 256MB PCIe is yet another high-end ATI-powered card from HIS that costs a premium but delivers a lot of horsepower to your computer."
