Seeing as we just found a whole bunch of stuff that came out after our first hardware roundup earlier today, we thought we'd bring you up to date.

Overclocker's Workbench looks at a Socket A to Slot A converter, yet another i815E mobo, this time from Soltek, and has some sound advice on getting your swapfiles in shape.

Anandtech checks out ASUS' latest stab at the video card market with its GeForce2 MX based V7100 and reckons if you need TV out, you can't go wrong with this baby.

Over at Hard OCP you can check out what they have to say on the subject of Microstar's new dual Socket 370 mobo. Kyle and the boys reckon that even if dual CPUs are not your bag, this board might just change your mind. They even reckon you should put it in a case with a window on the side so you can gawp at it. Hmmm.

And if you want the inside poop on the latest Slot 1 mobo from Aopen, AX64 Pro, you'll need to click here to pop over to Sharkey Extreme where the chaps reckon that although it's a very solid motherboard with great features and a host of overclocking tweaks and options, it's a bit of a shame it only has four PCI slots. Still, you can't have everything.

That's all for now folks. Don't forget you can check out more wonderments from the Wacky World of Hardware by clicking on our compendium of hardware roundups here.
