Good morning everyone. JeffB checking in to ring in the new weekend. Since I've started working from home, weekends have a lot less meaning than they used to, but I still look forward to them. If all goes well I will be snuggling up with a new piece of hardware this afternoon. Otherwise I think I will be getting out. Thanks to my latest addiction, Far Cry, I haven't gotten out much in the last couple of weeks. I really hate games that don't have in-game saves, but I will say that Far Cry is an exception. If you haven't checked it out, you should, it's one of the best I've ever played. Just be aware, this bad boy stresses even the most powerful systems to the brink of reboots. Little secret, turn...

If anything, they have THE coolest names...let's see if they perform that way." X-Bag CTSSL LAN Bag @... Read more...
Good afternoon, and welcome back HotHardware fans! We've just posted a review of the Asus DRW-0804P 8X DVD+/-R Burner. While there are quite a few 8X DVD burners already on the market, there aren't many others that boast 8X burning capabilities on both +R and –R media. Asus' drive, however, is able to do just that. We've compared the DRW-0804P's features and performance to the popular Plextor 708A.  Click this link to check it out...

Good evening friends, welcome back to HH :)  I was driving home from work tonight when I noticed my car could use some gas.  As I approached the unusually empty gas station I happened to look at the price of gas; it had jumped to a record high of $0.84 per/L ($3.18 per/Gallon for you folks in the US).  Considering that I need my car to get to work, I had no choice but pay the outrageous price.  Cost aside, what really burns me is the fact that gas was only $0.74 per/L ($2.80 per/Gallon) when I left for work.  *Shakes Fist* Really, how can gas suddenly become that increasingly more precious over eight hours to warrant an extra $0.10 per/L ($0.38 per/Gallon)?  ARG!!! ...

Morning gang. Yesterday was one of the most stressful days in a long time at the day job. We lost our T1 at the office all day and Verizon really didn't act like they cared. Guess we'll be looking for a new provider soon! Anyhow, while we get back to normal, I had a few moments to pop in and give you a little news. Hope this will hold you over for now. Tweaknews has a look at a Radeon 9600 with Dual DVI and 256MB of memory from HIS: "With the numerous configurations available, one option seems to be quite a bit more scare and that is native support for dual DVI connections for the newer CRT and LCD monitors. Most dual DVI cards are more limited two dimensional drafting / professional workstations... Read more...
Welcome back friends :) My apologize about the late news update today.  My trip into Toronto lasted longer then anticipated.  Needless to say, it is getting late, so lets get down to business.... NVIDIA 6800 Ultra Previews/Reviews --> Our very own look: Link to HH's review PC Perspective Hard|OCP Tech Report 3D GPU Beyond 3D 3D Center XFX 5700 Ultra Dual DVI @ Viper Lair "While the XFX 5700 Ultra isn't the fastest card in the block, it is still a good card worthy of a recommendation for the performance and Dual DVI capability if nothing else. If you want a good, stable, fast video card that won't break the bank I would put the 5700 Ultra on your list of possible video cards to purchase."... Read more...
  asetek's ChillControl Windows beta An exclusive look at asetek's latest efforts Written by: Robert Maloney October 12, 2003 A first look at asetek's Windows-based ChillControl The best just got better As we alluded to in our review on the Vapochill XE Cooling Unit review, asetek has been working on a Windows-based version of their ChillControl software.  In the past, making modifications to the cooling system required connecting a cable from the ChillControl unit to an available COM port, and then booting from diskette into a DOS-based version of the software.  While not elegant, it still was an easy enough process to change the settings, although it required restarting the system...
