Albatron K8SLI Review @ AMD Zone "While overclockers may want to steer clear with only an average feature set those looking to mod, or just wanting some more case real estate for watercooling can take advantage of the smaller depth. You won't find a board packed with extras, or high end hardware, or extra SATA ports. The bottom line is that the Albatron K8SLI is an interesting implementation of the nForce 4 SLI with a low cost, and... Read more...

Samsung YH-820 MP3 Player Review @ Designtechnica: "Apple may be king of the MP3 player hill, but there are several companies hoping to dethrone the big red, and Samsung's in line. The new YH-820 micro HDD based MP3 player is not only smaller than the iPod mini, but it sports a bright color display, and dare-we-say it, is just as attractive. But are good looks and solid sound enough to convince users to shun the Apple iPod mini? Read on to find out."

As the old saying goes, "It's better to burn out than to fade away".  This holds true when we think about AGP graphics cards.  While PCI-Express has certainly gained a lot of ground, AGP is not ready to die just yet.  Virtually any video card manufacturer you look at is still offering AGP based graphics solutions, even in the high-end sector.  Surely, the day PCI-Express completely eclipses AGP isn't too far off, as the bandwidth and power benefits of PCI-Express are very real.  Nonetheless, new AGP offerings continue to hit store shelves.  The latest such offerings to reach our test bench are from HIS in the form of their X850XT IceQII Turbo VIVO 256MB...

Hey folks, here's your monday fix :) I've got some news for all you gamers out there... Half-Life 2: Aftermath is rumored to be released in September. Also, Quake 4 is aiming for a fall/winter release date, so it looks like the end of the year will again be a treat to us Source and Doom 3 engine fans. Personally I'm looking equally forward to both of them... well, maybe Quake 4 a little more than the HL2 expansion. MSI K8N Neo Platinum Motherboard Review @ CoolTechZone "After taking a look at seven socket 754 boards late last month, we have established the fact that the 754 platform is the budget system to be had. Though its life span is limited to the point where AMD will stop the production... Read more...
Hey folks, the news is moving slow today but there's enough for a decent read. I'm taking valuable time away from a Red Sox game right now, so you better enjoy the news :) WD 320GB PATA HDD @ Hardware Avenue "PATA is still considered by many as the HDD standard of choice - IDE cables are not ideal, but when using specialized rounded cables, they become far less of a problem air flow wise and actually aren't too bad in comparison to SATA cables. The HDD makers are aware that not everyone has bought into the rather slow moving SATA market so you'll still find high end HDD's featured on the PATA standard - which is exactly what we have in review today, the high end Western Digital WD3200 320GB PATA...

Good morning all!  Most of us in the States are at the beginning of a 3-day weekend.  While I know I look forward to it, I also welcome the extra time to work on a couple of sweet pieces of hardware. Speaking of hardware, AMDZone has the X850XT Platinum on tap, an impressive looking card.  Make sure you check out Marco's take on this card too. ATI Radeon X850XT Platinum Edition Review @ AMDZone: "As you can see the card is equipped with a copper heat sink and large red exhaust fan. The fan helps to reduce overall system temperature by drawing internal air over the heat sink and expelling it from the back of the computer. On the back of the card you will notice the metal band...

Good morning everyone.  I'm starting off the day a bit envious after reading Marco's Mobility Radeon X700 review.

Good morning all :)  It was my sister-in-laws 30th birthday last night, so, needless to say my head is feeling a little fuzzy this morning.  But, a night of good times is well worth the few hours of feeling under the weather ;)  Nervetheless, it is getting later in the day so let's got down to business...  PDP System Patriot XBL PC-3200 DC Kit @ ClubOC "Its amazing how the memory industry is ran. It seems like more and more companies are just doing the same thing. In a way it's good, and in other ways it's bad.

As Intel's Alderwood and Grantsdale chipsets have brought a whole new platform of technology to the P4, OEMs are now in full swing, bringing their own flavors to the mix.  With support for Intel's new LGA775 processors, DDR and DDR2 and PCI-Express, the playing field has certainly changed.  Granted, while upgrading will require a larger investment, the results can be worth it in the end, especially if you are migrating from a generation or two behind this current Intel architecture. Recently, we've seen a number of offerings come to market based on the 915G/P chipset.  While each company offers its own combination of features, only a few have truly stood out from the rest. The... Read more...
