where you'll find everything you ever wanted to know about multiple booting Microsoft operating systems. Nice to see not everyone dislikes M$ and wants to run more than one of its Osesses at a time.

there's a look at yet another i815E mobo, this time from DFI. The CS35-EC is a micro ATX board which explains why it only has two PCI slots, although it does have one of those pesky CNR slots that no one ever uses. Tbreak reckons if you have a small case or just want a motherboard in the Micro ATX form factor this mobo is a very worthy choice.




PC Scoop

has a gander at the new $90 FIC FB11 mobo for Socket 370 Celerons and PIIIs. The verdict is that if you are looking to put together a very cost effective machine for surfing or even a game or two, it's just the ticket. Just don't expect to tweak your processor to the max or have the fastest system on the planet.
