  • Micron DDR Memory Pricing

    Published: Thursday, January 4, 2001 | By: Dennis

    You can be sure this price will change in the coming months. Though it would also appear that DDR memory doesn't cost much more to produce than regular SDRAM. Makes the switch a pretty easy one.

  • Celeron 800 Announced

    Published: Thursday, January 4, 2001 | By: Dennis

    It would seem that Intel has just upgraded its Celeron line of processors to a new level, this time to 800Mhz. So if you are looking for a inexpensive upgrade that has overclocking ability you might look at the Celeron. Then again there is better options.

  • WaterCooled GeForce2

    Published: Sunday, December 31, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Hypothermia has posted an article on water cooling his Hercules GeForce2.

    He has great attention to detail, right down to the blue anodized goodies that cover the GPU and RAM and from an aesthetic standpoint, this is the best water-cooling mod I have ever seen.

  • SUMA Platinum GeForce2 Pro

    Published: Wednesday, December 27, 2000 | By: Dennis

    SUMA, a small company, which I?ve never heard of, is releasing a Black GeForce2 Pro video card. I found a review of this card in prototype form at Tom's Hardware.

    Here are just some of the cool features that are included with this card.
    5ns DDR memory, 200Mhz/400Mhz clock speed and AGP Pro! They also have a pretty sweet looking TwinView MX card too.

  • Anandtech Dream System

    Published: Tuesday, December 26, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Much like Arstechnica, Anandtech creates a computer building(buying) guide and outlines different systems based on purpose. Being a builder myself I get a kick out of these articles from time to time.

    Though since most of us that build systems do so to get the best system for the least amount of money it doesn't seem practical to follow a guide that has a bottom line of 10 grand.

  • P4 Overclocking Guide

    Published: Sunday, December 24, 2000 | By: Dennis

    I caught glimpse of this over at GamePC today and was very surprised. Normally I'm not real big on first generation hardware releases, but for the P4 I might make an exception.

    The Pentium 4 looks like it will be a great platform for the CyberAthlete. You will get great memory bandwidth due to Rambus, the highest CPU clock speeds, and double-digit multipliers. See the review at GamePC.
