Today's pick of the crop of subjects up for discussion in Hardware land

TweakPC has posted its first response to Abit's BX133 Motherboard - in translation from the original German. The two pager also includes a sneak preview picture - they claim a world exclusive, and you never know - it could be true!

A discussion is underway on one of the bulletin boards at OC Workbench about the possibility of AMD making a slotA socketA converter. Have a read here. We spoke to AMD and they said they weren't working on, or giving approval to one, but that they couldn't speak for anyone else.

More AMD, and System Logic has posted a review of the Gigabyte GA-7VM Athlon Slot A motherboard. They reckon it will be perfect for value users.

On a slightly different tack (because a whole piece on AMD would just be favouritism, wouldn't it?) an english version of chip.de's guide to overclocking the GeForce2-MX. These guys are very happy since they got it up to 30 per cent above specified performance. Not too shabby.

Dr Tom also turns his attention the the land of gamers with a critique of the GeForec2 GTS. The moral of the story? Don't believe the hype 'cos there are other options.®
