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. Overall, Anand reckons it's going to be a good year for the buyer, with tough competition at both ends of the market.



Then we have a

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.




Via Hardware has looked at the Transcend APM3 mobo, based on the VIA PM133. The

review

finds enough wrong with it to strike off one and a half of the five points available but that probably has more to do with its lack of overclocking friendliness than any inherent fault.




Sharky says "I told you so" about memory prices. This week it shows a small rise, so the boys are sticking to the 'buy' rating they issued last week. Go

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.




And finally, we think it must be nearly Christmas or something, because it is getting mighty silly out there. You'll see what I mean at

GlideUnderground

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