Hurricane Katrina, the biggest of the storms to hit the U.S. this year, has arrived at New Orleans as of this morning. Most have left the city, but thousands remain, many of them piled into the Superdome which has already suffered damage.

We're back folks, and it's time for a news roundup. We've been pretty busy this weekend, well, not so much for me... it's hard to consider a weekend long 21st birthday celebration as being busy.

HIS X700 IceQ 128MB GDDR3 AGP "The benchmarks paint a different picture than what our synthetic benchmarks would lead us to believe. The X700 Pro performs well, beating out the 6600GT and 9700 Pro in most cases, and in Far Cry, Half-Life 2, and Unreal Tournament 2k4 scaling better with resolution".

Enjoy the news, good night! Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 - Gaming and Performance Andrew Ku "Consider this: a few years ago there were a handful of names making true blue notebook gaming rigs, i.e. Alienware, albeit in small quantities. But as the gaming generation grows, so does the interest in these powerful systems. So, it really comes as no surprised to us to see Dell and HP joining the fray. The difference is that Dell has really gone after the "enthusiast" gamer, rather than the casual "once... Read more...

Abit AG8 915P Motherboard Review @ PC Perspective "Overclocking aside, the ABIT AG8 is a top performer. It is slightly faster than the Chaintech V915P even though the two boards use the same chipset and RAM, and are identically configured. Somewhere ABIT has done some engineering to this motherboard that has given it a kick in performance. Compared to the more expensive 915P using DDR2, it performs essentially the same."

  We are going to go start down the proverbial "rabbit hole' for notebooks in the coming weeks. And because of this, we need to lay a few things out before we go on. First and foremost, certain notebooks are designed with certain people in mind. Five or six years ago, not everyone was cut out to own a notebook, for a variety of reasons; which of course included pricing versus desktop systems. However, the drive down in notebook prices and the variety in notebooks have made it possible for most of us to own or plan to own a notebook. After all, notebooks have come a long way since they were only in the reach of the most professional of businessmen and running in the $4,000+ price range.... Read more...
Well folks, my package finally arrived and I couldn't be happier with my results. So far I'm running it at a stable 2.34GHz, which is close to the speed of a 3800 . Not bad for a $155 "budget" CPU. I hope all your winter overclocking sessions go as smoothly :) ATake Phantom Robot ChipsMod IV Chipset Cooler @ BigBruin "There are certainly other coolers, but none of them can be compared to the ChipsMod IV's unique looks. As for the performance, that's marginal without the fan, giving only a 2 degree C advantage over the stock MSI heat sink. Add the fan on there, and that improves to almost a 6 degree C difference!"
