GeForce 6800/Ultra Roundup, Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP and More

Good evening everyone, welcome back :)  The day is winding down and my inbox is filling up.  I think you know what that means!  Yup, time for the HH Nightcap.  Go grab a beverage, a few snackies and settle in, here is your news shot...

 GeForce 6800/Ultra Roundup @ HardOCP

"It all comes down to money and your wants and/or needs. You have to decide how much you want to spend and how much performance you want. If you want the best of the best there is no topping the ASUS V9999 Ultra Deluxe. It has an incredible bundle, single-slot, and has some room to stretch with overclocking. But you do pay for all of this; it is not the cheapest card on the block."

 Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP Duo 915P Motherboard @ PCStats

"The Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP Duo will support up to 4GB of DDR-2 or DDR memory (though not at the same time); which is one the nicer features of the 915P chipset.There are two sockets for DDR-2 RAM, and four sockets for DDR RAM. Onboard components consists of an IDE RAID controller, IEEE 1394b fireware, four SATA channels, three PCI x1 slots, 7.1 channel Intel 'High Definition Audio', a PCI Express based Broadcom 5751 Gigabit NIC, a second PCI-based Gigabit Marvel NIC, an 802.11G wireless LAN card, and twin BIOS'. The software bundle includes all the typical fodder, including a copy of Norton Internet Security 2004."

 D-Link Central Home Drive @ Phoronix

"Over the years, networks have developed substantially. With this booming growth, a demand to share files among other computers on your network has become a common occurrence, however many users simply don't have a spare computer they can setup as a SOHO file server. D-Link has luckily jumped to the rescue with a 40GB Central Home Drive."

"Looking to upgrade to a spanking new motherboard based on the NVIDIA nForce3 250 chipset? You're in luck then as we've just cooked up a comprehensive 30-page shootout involving seven motherboards from six major brands. Check it out now!"

 Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2400 Golden Sample @ xbitlabs

"Our today's review is devoted to a graphics card from Gainward, which is based on NVIDIA's reference design but comes equipped with the unique cooling solution, which allows positioning it as an overclocker's choice. Let's find out if this is a true overclocking friendly product!"

Until next time friends.  Have a good night :) - Cheers
