Socket-A indulgence at Dr Tom's
How to win at games, and other useful stuff
HWRoundup At Tom's Hardware today, the doctor teams up with Patrick Schmid to look at the best option for those on a budget that still precludes DDR. The consensus seems to be that a SDRAM Socket-A mobo is the thing to have, and they've looked at six, based on the KT133A chipset.
Anandtech welcomes the new KT133A board from ABit with open arms. It is "impressive" and should keep overclockers happy. So, as an early leader in the "transitional" stage that the KT133A chipset must be, the board does very nicely. Read the rest of the review here. And have a look at OCWorkbench's take on it here.
While at OC's, have a look at this reveiw. Those at the Workbench also seem to have snuck in early on the Iwill DVD266R Apollo Pro 266, an SMP capable mainboard using DDR SDRAM designed around the Apollo Pro 266.
The latest version of ZZZ Online is up now. From the sublime to the truly ridiculous, or possibly just the ridiculous. This issue features a keyboard that seems to think it is a sofa*.
And finally... something a little more lighthearted: Sharky Extreme has news that the Gameshark is out for the PC. This nifty little program will help all the cheaters out there develop their rule bending to its full potential.Soon there wqill not be an honest bone in your body. We promise it won't hurt! ®
