There is a current trend in PC hardware to have two of everything.  Whether it's two (or more) drives in a RAID configuration, dual-core CPUs, dual-channel memory, or adding an additional video card to increase frame rates; it's apparent that doubling-up is here to stay.  Up until recently, running two video cards simultaneously meant one thing: NVIDIA cards running on NVIDIA motherboards.  It was a logical step for the graphics leader to support only their own chipsets, as it brought more prestige to the platform.  More prestige, and of course, more profits through more sales of their own chipsets.  While ATi has only started to gain some ground in this area with full...

The Inquirer waxes philosophical over NVIDIA's recent cancellation of their C60 nForce IGP for the Intel platform. Given the somewhat questionable solidity of the company's C51 GeForce 6100/6150 chipsets on the AMD front, it is possible that there were a few too many issues with the Intel counterpart. However, it is also entirely possible that the recent acquisition of ULI was largely intended to solve this very problem. If I were to take a shot at this, I'd bet that the Intel chipset costs were a bit too high for the market's liking and that the chipsets resulting from the adoption of ULI will result in cheaper chipsets that see a much higher adoption. Then again, that's just my $0.02.During... Read more...
MSI P4N Diamond @ Viperlair: "While the board did not sit on top of every benchmark, it has the potential to be one of the fastest gaming platforms for Intel. Benchmarks don't tell the whole story though, as the P4N Diamond proved to be a reliable board throughout testing and is stacked with enough features that it should be able to survive in most people's PC for a long while." Asus P5LD2-VM Motherboard Review @ Motherboards.org: "The ASUS P5LD2-VM board is an interesting contrast. At a retail price of $109, this board is excellent for the consumer looking for a low-priced, high performance board. Feature-wise it's an ok board, with the noticeable absence of a RAID controller... Read more...

OCZ Gamer eXtreme Enhanced Latency Memory @ CoolTechZone: "Over the past few years, OCZ Technology has been pushing the limits of memory modules with its fine engineering talent.
