HP DVD Movie Writer DC3000 @ TrustedReviews
"Most of us have piles of old video tapes and old camcorder footage that we’d love to be able to archive onto a longer lasting medium such as DVD. However, while it’s easy to get footage from a DV camcorder onto your PC through a FireWire socket, it’s less straightforward for analogue footage. And once you’ve got that footage on your computer, it’s a time consuming and often tedious process to edit and burn onto DVD. "

Intels hidden Mainboard Names @ TweakPC
"Teddy-bears have Names and Baby-Dolls have Names, so why shouldn´t Mainboards have Names? ;-)"
HIS 9600 XT Turbo @ Legit Reviews
"I would like to give HIS some kudos for creating a graphics card using the 9600 XT graphics core because it really does hit a big market since not everyone can afford a $300-$400 video card. This card performs just as it said it would and with our "out of the box" testing strategy, we found no issues and were very impressed."

Albatron Gigi Geforce FX5900PV Review @ MonkeyReview
"The Albatron Gigi Geforce FX5900 blew away everything we had here at the office, though no other 5900 cards were displayed in our benchmarking line up, we’ll be making comparisons to the ATI 9800XT core later in the month. This should give us a closer price/performance comparison. For the time being I’m giving the card full marks for its performance."

Demonic XTC Waterblock Review @ Ninjalane
"Benchmarks were very close, but are what I expected. The White Water had a lower temp by two degrees but shows even without velocity nozzles the Demonic XTC waterblock can perform exceptionally well."

Albatron KX18D Pro II Nforce2 Motherboard Review @ Tweaknews.net
"I am thoroughly impressed with this motherboard. Part of what one has to consider when purchasing any type of hardware is what they are getting for their money. What you are getting with the KX18D Pro II is a stable, feature-packed motherboard that overclocks like a dream. I know that a lot of people do not overclock their systems, and so care very little about such things. Frankly, that doesn´t matter. The board has so much to offer that even if you never stray from the default settings, you will still be very happy with your investment."

MSI GeForceFX 5700TD Ultra @ TrustedReviews
"The 5700 Ultra also benefits from architectural improvements drawn from the GeForceFX 5950, in the form of the CineFX 2. This includes support for pixel and vertex shader programs of up to 1,024 instructions as well as superior performance. This will enable greater precision over how game developers can manipulate pixels and will lead to better effects. The use of shaders in games is not common yet but will be increasingly used in new games over the next year."
