HWRoundup The kit to play Counterstrike at 120fps
Plus a nuclear bomb style custom case
PCReview have whipped up a review on the Antec SX830 Case. They like its snap-in fan headers. No screws needed. Read it here.
Overclockers are getting excited about one of the coolest custom cases it has seen. They reckon it looks like a nuclear bomb with its big turbine fan in a cylindrical container. Check it out.
Temple of Tech has posted a guide to tweaking your ABIT KT7 mobo. They say that though the board is good for overclockers, "performance compared to the ASUS A7V is not the best." However, with some tweaking in the bios settings, the ABIT can perform rather well.
If you are a hardcore gamer and haven't thought about setting up a RAID solution yet, now might be the time. Well that's what GA hardware thinks. It has reviewed the HyperDisk 100 RAID controller from American Megatrends. Good news is it increases the disk subsystem speed. Bad news is that installation information could be better.
Tech-Review has had a look at Soyo's i815E board - the SY-7I. The verdict is that it is a good overall performer with a good lay out and soft jumpers for overclocking. It's a good solid solution, but lacks that something special that overclockers really love.
GamePC has got is grubby hands on a retail Hercules' 3D Prophet II Ultra. They point out that Nvidia's upcoming NV20 processor will probably outdate the GeForce2 Ultra. And they mention you could buy a budget AMD Duron/GeForce2 MX system for the same price. But if you're someone for who nothing else matters unless you can play Counterstrike at 120fps, then the GeForce2 Ultra is perfection right now. ®
