Old ... yet cool ?" @

"When the new graphic cards are being introduced, their manufacturers often focus on updating the drivers for them. This helps those cards to achieve better results in games or benchmarks. However : it is often that the newest drivers do not increase the older cards' efficiency and even decrease it. In this article I will present those drivers for cards based on GPU with the code names : R200, RV250 i R280 – that is Radeon 6500, 9000, 9100 and 9200 that allow us to enjoy the best efficiency and the best benchmark results."

Akasa Power Eyes Review @ Mikhailtech

"The Power Eyes come in a set of 5 in the retail package shown. You'll need to snap the pieces apart before inserting them into your connectors. Two versions are available: blue and "rainbow": one each of blue, green, orange, red, and blue/red. Instructions can't get any simpler, as shown on the back of the package. You insert the PCB into a male connector, then plug in the female connector and enjoy the show."

MSI's RX800 XTs @

"Overall, it's hard not to recommend MSI's boards in the face of those X800 XTs from other vendors. X800 XT and XT PE's raw power makes it arguably the fastest basic SKU from either of the top two GPU IHVs right now, with MSI's bundle and online pricing making it the most attractive that I've personally seen to date."

Hitachi Desktar 250GB SATA Hard Drive @ Techware Labs

"Starting as an electrical shop, Hitachi has come along way since its beginnings. Hitachi has been ahead of the pack lately, releasing large sized hard drives before the competition. The latest offers are the 250 GB and 400 GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA Drives. We had a chance to review and benchmark the 250 GB drive in our labs."

Toshiba SD-R5372 5x Double Layer Writer @ ExtremeMHz

"Today, we are pleased to bring you yet another double layer DVD writer review that has one feature that will definitely give its competitors a run for their money. The new Toshiba SD-R5372 is the first DVD writer to feature 5x double layer writing support. The interest for faster double layer writers is quite high, and is why this drive has sparked quite a bit of interest among many PC and video enthusiasts. We are eager to see how well the drive does handle DL media at this speed, considering that 2.4x media continues to be somewhat difficult to acquire. Let's take it for a spin and see how well it performs."
