Thermaltake Silent Purepower 420W PSU Review
Many manufacturers can claim "x" number of watts, but what you will want to be concerned with is the combined output of the +5v and +3.3v rails, which is what items such as your CPU, AGP/PCI cards, and memory needs, as well as anything plugged into the floppy power connection. If possible, you'll want at least 200W combined. The Purepower has 220W, which is pretty good

Crazy PC Imperial Fire Dragon side panel Review
Holding the Fire Dragon panel in your hands up close you start to fully appreciate the attention to detail here. Not only are the edges of the Laser cut steel completely smooth, the pattern used is so intricate I doubt it would be possible to recreate at home with your dremel, even if you are really skilled

Soltek SL-85ERV (VIA p4x400) Intel Motherboard Review
That's right, unofficial support for DDR400!! Not only that but Soltek also had a bios update that makes this board Hyper-Threading capable..

Review : P4 2.53GHz
The price of this CPU has lowered considerably, but it's still a bit on the high side, but now those who are looking for an Intel upgrade solution that does not require the powerful new technologies of the upcoming new year can give this product some consideration. For me, this was certainly a desirable upgrade over my 1GHz Celeron ("Coppermine").
