Spire Cooler SkiveStream 3 @ HardwareHounds.com "As processors get faster, they produce more heat.

The SGI 1600SW Flat Panel LCD Finally, a Multi-Media and Gaming ready LCD By Dave Altavilla 8/3/01 Flat Panel technology is still far from perfect, at least in this Tech Journalist's eyes.  Then again, so is CRT technology.  I guess we're a bit spoiled here at HotHardware.  However, let's face it, the display you look at on your home or work PC, is easily the most important piece of equipment in your setup.  If your monitor doesn't cut it, chances are you won't be happy using the machine that is driving it.  Now, with this in mind, I think it is safe to say that modern TFT LCD displays are easily the best 2D Desktop image for the home user and professional alike. ...
