GeForce Go 6800, Kingston PC3200 ValueRAM, and more!
Finally had some snow today... at one point it looked like a blizzard. It's nice to watch until you have to shovel three feet of it around your house :( Anyway, it's late so i'll make this brief. Enjoy!
"The results and benchmarks speak volumes for the potential performance to be had with high HTT and memory speeds on a Socket 939 Athlon64 setup. I have no hesitation in recommending this memory to those users seeking the utmost in performance potential from their high end computing hardware."
"Traditionally headphones were a simple pair of speakers which did their job just fine. Today people demand more than the usual and want the biggest and best on the market. If you would have told me a few years ago I would be seeing 5.1 headphones I probably would have called you nuts. Well, 5.1 headphones are now available from many manufactures and are becoming the standard of quality."
"The ValueRAM is rated at 2.6V, so feel free to bump it up a notch from the (older) standard 2.5V. As far as overclocking goes, it's practically non-existent. I used a Biostar M7NCG nForce2 all-in-one mATX motherboard. Granted, it's not an overclocker's dream, but being the broke college student that I am it's the only board I have access to. Furthermore, few enthusiasts would pay a premium for top-of-the-line components only to skimp on the RAM. I was able to get the memory to post at some pretty impressive settings: 2-3-2-1 at a maximum allowed voltage of 2.8V. Unfortunately that's where the excitement ended. I had to bump them back up significantly to even boot into Windows."
"With a backlit blue LCD screen, this USB controlled bay insert interacts with software you load onto your PC, bringing more than a host of useful features and information right to the front of your modded computer. With the Matrix Orbital MX212 you get a very cool interactive unit that can control various pieces of software within your PC, from Winamp to weather reports (via internet link to standard weather information providers), or even displaying the amount of free space on your hard drive."
"Since I was not interested in a surround sound set, all those 4.1, 5.1, 6.1 and even 7.1 packages were not what I was looking for and I narrowed my needs down to a decent 2.1 configuration. Nowadays I tend to use the speakers on my workstation to listen to music and, every now and then, play some games, so I wanted powerful satellites, backed up by a body pounding woofer. Besides that, I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg to achieve my goals, leaving the "professional" studio speakers out of the equation."
"The GeForce Go 6800 is truly a solution that shows NVIDIA has gained the needed ground on their competition to not only match their performance but also surpass them."
"I could list a million different uses this little device...512MB of portable USB 2.0 storage can come in handy anytime"
"I'll have to admit that I probably wouldn't have gone out and purchased a Steelpad, but now that I've used it for a while I don't think I'll be going back to "commando-style" mousing anytime soon."
