Crucial Radeon 9600 Pro Review at Designtechnica

"The Crucial Radeon 9600 Pro is definitely the beginning of the shape of things to come from ATI chipsets in the near future. With die sizes shrinking and memory solutions becoming more available and affordable, it would definitely seem as though the potential is here for a compromise between the cost of a high-end graphics card and an affordable one. We would not be surprised if the Radeon 9600 followed the way of the 9500 in versatility and cost effectiveness. A very good bargain for the price to performance it is capable of."

Biostar i-DEQ 200P @ TrustedReviews

"The single most impressive aspect of the i-DEQ is the solid construction. Building the i-DEQ was easier than any other PC Iíve ever put together. It didnít take me much longer than 10 minutes to fit the processor, memory, hard drive, floppy, CD-ROM and graphics card. I donít know of any other barbone system that you can do this with. One of the reasons that construction is so simple is that all the cables are pre-routed in the chassis."

Albatron KX18D Pro II Review @ Bjorn3D

"As the latest and greatest in Athlon 64 processors and chipsets come out, the nForce 2 chipset still holds its own as king of the castle. These boards continue to provide top notch performance for a relatively low amount of money. It´s still the best bang for the buck on the market. You can get this board and a 2500+ Athlon XP for under $200. That´s a small amount of money for a board and processor package that you can be happy with for quite a while. So, it´s obvious the chipset is not dead, and the Albatron KX18D Pro II is alive and packing a lot of performance into a low priced, high featured board. Let´s take a look at the Albatron KX18D Pro II, featuring the nForce 2 Ultra 400 chipset."
