Active-Hardware does the Chaintech Desperado AGP-RI70 GeForce 256 and then they post a nice little article entitled "New Visual Age.": It's based on monitor technology and it's future. It's actually pretty informative!

Still not tired of hearing about Microsoft's optical mice? Well, too bad! =) Games Xtreme has a review on the IntelliMouse Optical. I, personally, would not recommend these for gaming. I don't like the way it feels. I might just have to play on one for a lot longer.

PC Gunk has a guide (kind of) on overclocking a PII 233 to 350 MHz. You might find this useful or you might not. It's kind of wierd, I guess.

Tweak Town has the a hold of MSI's news release. They are announcing the first motherboard to support the new AMD Thunderbird and Duron chips. They're giving it the awe-inspiring name of.. MSI K7T. Disappointed? I was.. Someday I'll make a motherboard and I'll call it the Big Black Motherboard from Hell. Then we'll see who sells the most motherboards.

3d Accelerated takes a look at a last generation card in the Outrageous Ultra 32MB GeForce DDR. These are going to be the cards to shoot for now that the GeForce2 is out. Still a very fast card at dropping prices.

Extremecooling.de has a project up called "Project Celery on the Rocks." Nothing ground breaking here but they do use a peltier so it's all good.

Zip 250 USB drive review over at Glide Underground. They don't like them and niether do I. If you're going to go with smaller storage, I'd go with a Super Disk.

Need a peltier? Time for some Xtreme Cooling? Well head on over to Gaming in 3D because they have a 55 Watt Peltec peltier review up and running. If you pick one of these up, just don't hose your system. I'd hate to lose a reader. =)

Active-Hardware does the DFI AK70. No, they don't do it like that you sicko. Anyway, not a mainstream board but I've heard these non-mainstream boards to be really good cheap alternatives. KX-133 chipset involved here in case you were wondering.
