computernerd.com: Find Out How Much Heat Your CPU Really Generates
Quote, "ComputerNerd has a new online thermal calculator for estimating how much power your Intel or AMD CPU dissipates, regardless of how you are using (or abusing) it. Because Intel does not publish maximum power dissipation ratings for its processors (unlike AMD), the NERD had to do some heavy data grubbing to come up with a scheme allowing direct comparison of AMD and Intel processors (see http://computernerd.com/inteltdp-2.html, Notes on Intel Thermal Ratings). The calculator handles all Pentium III, Pentium 4, Xeon 4, Athlon and Duron CPUs, and more processors and features are planned for future updates."

amdzone.com: GeForce4 Ti4200 From nVidia
Quote, "After my nVidia vs ATI Round 3 decision of placing the Radeon8500 over the GeForce3 Ti500, needless to say some people were concerned. How could I make such a call when nVidia obviously had faster hardware? The answer at the time was easy, there was no price point offered from nVidia that could compete with the Radeon8500. Now with the release of the GeForce4 Ti4200 nVidia is making waves at the $150 dollar price point again."

lostcircuits.com: MSI KT3-Ultra
Quote, "VIA's KT333 chipset has conquered the market in a Blitzkrieg, leaving very little room for competitors. Now the battle is on amongst the winners, that is, which mainboard manufacturer will get the biggest chunk of the pie. After looking at the ASUS and Shuttle boards, we are tearing apart the latest "Deluxe" edition from MSI. How much of the KT3 is just candy wrapper, where are the hidden corners that have been cut, where are the bugs and last not least, is it worth any serious consideration? Are these questions leading the witnesses?"

One of those tasks is the viewing of television. To fill that task, Leadtek has created the new TV2000XP TV/FM tuner card. For many home theater buffs with gigantic HD TV’s this card may not seem too great. However, for the apartment dwellers and college kiddies this $65 wonder may be just right! This card packs a lot of punch!”
