Linksys EG008W Gigabit 8-Port Workgroup Switch @ EOC
"Many new computers these days include a gigabit capable network adapter, however most small networks are only 100Mb because of the high cost for a gigabit switch. Linksys has broken that barrier with both an 8 and 5 port gigabit switch that comes in well under $200! I´m not just talking about a single gigabit port either, every port on these switches are 10/100/1000 Mb capable! Today we are going to look at the 8 port version, the EG008W."

Solarism Flex-View LM-1730 17in LCD Monitor Review @ Bjorn3d
"One of the cool things about this Flex-View design is that you can fold it almost flat and then mount it on a wall. You don´t even have to remove the stand and attach special wall-mounting brackets like with most other LCD displays. But that´s only half of this greatness. Just think about how easy it becomes to carry once it´s folded as flat as it can go. I´m sure you LAN gamers can appreciate that, eh? Plus, at just over nine pounds, the LM-1730 is a breeze to take with you wherever you go."

Athenatech A747-SS Case Review @ MonkeyReview
"Back in the days of the 486s and the initial Pentiums, cases did not play such an important role in the operation of a computer. Cases were thought of as mere housing for the valued parts inside, and no recognition was given to the design or appearance of the computer itself. Since then, cases have evolved into an integral part of a computer machine, due to cooling, etc, and much more effort is being given into making a computer look its best."

ASUS & Gigabyte i875P/i865PE Boards @ Legion Hardware
"Since there is very little price difference between the two brands and the user gets a little extra with the more expensive Gigabyte boards it is very difficult to choose the best solution. It is also very hard to choose between the i865PE and i875P boards. Depending on how healthy your bank account balance is at the time and if you are prepared to spend an additional $60 US for a few more frames per second will greatly influence your decision on either an i865PE or i875P board."
