Future of Game Dev.
Slashdot has a post up about the future of game development. The article (well, discussion) is pretty important becuase the way game developers start coding now could effect us for years to come. Read up.

Belkin 8-Port Network Switch
There comes a day in every news poster's life where there just is not much going on. Today is one of those days. The only information I've received that had a working link is BlargOC's review of the Belkin 8-Port Network Switch. While it's not the most exciting product ever reviewed, at least it's something. Smile


MSI KT4 Ultra-FISR KT400
PCStats.com has taken a look at the new MSI KT4 Ultra-FISR KT400. I don't have a whole lot of experience with MSI except that Nicko has received two bad MSI KT133 boards in a row (recently, building a legacy system).

Watercooling Case
I'm sure a lot of you have seen those pre-made water cooling cases. Well, Sudhian has taken a look at such as case, in their review of the CPUfx Koolmax - Kool 101 Case. This is one expensive unit so make sure you can pay rent before you buy it. Smile

Mandrake Linux 9.0
Mandrake 9.0 is out. Check out Mandrakesoft.com's announcement for more information. I don't know about you, but I'm already downloading it. Smile

256MB CompactFlash
Looking for a big stick of memory for your digital camera or other portable memory device? Well, check out EnvyNews' review of the SanDisk Ultra 256MB CompactFlash Review. SanDisk's products are priced nicely, but does that mean they suck? Check out the review for more info.


USB Memory Drive
Ice Hardware has taken a look at a DION USB Memory Drive. This unit is only 16MB so it's not a high capacity storage solution but it's going to be good portable data solution.


SOYO Dragon Ultra KT333 'Platinum Edition'
OCTools has a review of the SOYO Dragon Ultra KT333 'Platinum Edition'. Aside from some issues, the board performs admirably and has a butt-load of features.


Gigabyte GA-8IHXP
HardOCP has taken a look at the spankin' new Gigabyte GA-8IHXP. This is Gigabyte's latest P4 Board (as far as I know) and is packed full of goods. Check it son.

Corsair 512MB XMS3200
Planning on doing any FSB overclocking any time soon? Want some RAM that can handle the high speeds? Then you should consider giving OCModShop's review of Corsair's 512MB XMS3200 DDR memory a look. Corsair is the only brand I'll buy for my computers.

LiteOn 48/12/48 CD-R Drive
Looking to get one of those new speedy 48x CD-R Drives? Don't want to pay top dollar? Check out The Tech Zone's review of the LiteOn LTR-48125W 48/12/48 CD Writer. LiteOn makes a good product for not a lot of money.


Samsung HDDs
If you asked me to yell out the first hard drive manufacturer I could think of Samsung would not be my answer. In all actuality, it probably wouldn't even be my 3rd or 4th. Samsung just is not a company that I associate with HDDs. However, I think Samsung would like it if you and I did just that and you can start by checking out TechwareLabs' review of the Samsung SP8004H 80GB and SP4002H 40GB HDDs.

Psych Perspective on eBay
Every once in a while an article comes to my attention that fits into the category of "Hrmmmmmm". Today, Future looks has fit an article into that category with their write up A Psychological Perspective on eBay. It is actually a full five pages on this guys perspective on eBay. It might be worth a read if you are bored at the office or something. I do not think the guy has a PhD in Psychology or anything but, still, opinions are always interesting. Smile


GlobalWin CAK4-86
GlobalWin has always been one of my favorite heatsink makers and their CAK series of heatsinks has always been one of my favorites (mostly because pronouncing the acronym sounds like someone from Boston trying to say Cock). Anyway, ExtremeOverclocking.com has give the GlobalWin CAK4-86 a good looking over. Check it out.

Akasa ShinEtsu TIPs
To be honest I usually don't give a rat's ass about thermal pads. However, Tech PC has reviewed the Akasa ShinEtsu Thermal Interface Pad. I figure if they are going to bother writing a review on a thermal pad it might just be worth a look. Smile


AMD Athlon XP 2200+
EX Hardware is divorced hardware (har har), or wait, no. They have a review of the AMD Athlon XP 2200+. If you want to know more, read the review all I can really tell you it's that it's clocked at 1.8 GHz and I don't have one. Smile

Heatsink Trifecta
Did you come looking for a heat sink review? Well, OCIA has got you cover with their 3 Heatsinks in one review. They take a look at the Thermaltake Volcano 9, Thermalright AX-7 and the Sibak AC-02-625T. It's a virtual trifecta of heatsinks (I've always wanted to use that word).

ATI Radeon 9700
Some place called Sudhian has posted a pretty comprehensive review of the ATI Radeon 9700. They cover benchmarks, FSAA, and all that other good stuff.


ATi Radeon 9700 Pro Reference Review
An ATi Radeon 9700 Pro reference board has been given a good going over at Guru3D. This is good to check out because it will give you good base numbers to compare other Radeon based cards too.

Thermaltake Copper Fan Grills
Tweakers Australia have taken a look at some Thermaltake Copper Fan Grills. At first I thought this was going to be a pretty stupid product, but they're actually pretty cool. However, one would think the copper would bend easily, right?


80mm Thermalright Roundup
The guys over at Phlux.co.uk have written up an 80mm Thermalright heatsink roundup. More specifically, they have reviewed three Socket A heatsinks, the AX-7, the SLK-800, and the CB-7.
