Good evening folks! The news has been moving slow this weekend, but we've got enough items now for a decent sized sunday night update. If this is your first visit of the day, scroll down a bit to see Dave's recent post about HotHardware's upcoming appearance at the Nor'Easter LAN. Well ladies and gents, I'm out until tomorrow :) Goodnight.

It accepts both 80mm and 92mm fans, though there's absolutely no reason to go with an 80mm model when 92mm will provide you with just as much (if not more) airflow at a reduced noise level."
"Hardware Avenue have today reviewed the HIS Radeon X850XT and HIS Radeon X850XT PE PCI-E videocards. Both are aimed towards the high end gamers on the emerging PCI-E platform, but which is the better buy?"
"Even as you move very close to the screen, the pixelation is very difficult to see. If you put a couple of nose smudges on the LCD then you can probably make out the individual pixels. Although my camera was able to capture them fairly easily with a macro shot."
