Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro Graphics Card Review @ TweakTown
"We would all love to be in the position to be able to buy a brand new Ferrari on the way to work tomorrow but of course due to the high retail it is inhibitive of actually happening unless your numbers come up in the Lottery. The same, to a lesser extent, applies to graphics cards. If you can´t afford the Ferrari of graphics cards, follow Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at the Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro. It might just be what your wallet was looking while satisfying your performance cravings!"

PowerColor Radeon 9800 Pro 256 MB Review @ 3DChip
"Nach unserem letzen Radeon 9800 Pro Test sind bereits einige Monate vergangen. Zu diesen Zeitpunkt konnte sich der Radeon 9800 Pro Chip gegen die direkte Konkurrenz aus dem Hause nVIDIA (Geforce FX 5800 Ultra) knapp durchsetzen. Um den jetzigen theoretischen Vorsprung gegen die neue Konkurrenz aus der nVIDIA FX-Reihe den NV35 GeForce FX 5900 Ultra auszubauen, schickten die Kanadier eine überarbeitete Version ihres Radeon 9800 Pro in den "Kampf" um die Performance Krone. Ausgestattet mit 256 MB DDR 2 RAM birgt der Chip bereits eine beeindruckend theoretische Leistung in sich. Wie sich der Radeon 9800 Pro mit dem DDR2 Speicher in der Praxis verhält, möchten wir in dem nachfolgenden Test herausfinden."

Aerocool Aeropower II Acrylic Series 420W PSU Review @ Bjorn3D
"I think the famous saying is "Looks can be deceiving," but there is nothing deceptive about the looks of the Aeropower II. The looks are a combination of style, power, and a whole lot of "bling-bling" mixed in. The blue acrylic windows, LED fans, and a polished surface so reflective you could comb your hair in the morning in front of it make it look sweeter than a package of sugar coated sugar pieces. And it´s not just your average plating on the surface, this is titanium plating. This PSU is definitely the case modder´s dream."

Monarch Computer Barebone AMD Hornet system @ MonkeyReview
"Have mixed feelings concerning the Monarch Computer AMD Barebone system. On one hand it does deliver some decent benchmark results, on the other, air circulation, a poorly located Noise Killer (has been addressed), and less than exciting looks seem to hinder my overall feelings. With a little effort from our DYI readers it does have some interesting possibilities & the makings for a nice system."

Athenatech A747CS Designer Computer Case Review @ Tweaknews.net
"For a mere US$50-$60 getting a decent looking case with an included quality power supply is nothing to sneeze at. Add in the features like the tool-less side panel, tool-less optical and Hard drive installation and easily accessible multimedia ports and you have yourself quite a deal."
