Anand continues crystal ball gazing today. He's finished part two of the guide to 2001 where he looks at the plans of motherboard makers Gigabyte, Microstar, Shuttle and Transcend.

review

of the MSI K7T Pro2 motherboard over at Overclockers Online. It gets a general thumbs up, but they reckon it isn't the ultimate overclocking board. Still, could be worth a look if you want stability and a decent bundle, but don't have millions in the bank.

to watch them all gloat.




Up next is the $40 Dual Power Gamepad from Firestorm.

GA Hardware

has a look at this one, and concludes that if you want to play Metal Gear Solid and its ilk on a PC, you'll probably want one.

GlideUnderground

where they have reviewed a 200MHz Pentium from Intel. Well, why not? ®
