Beantech Igloo 3
With many cases available on the market, choosing which one best suits your needs can be difficult. Today we have another aluminum model to look at. Beantech is a somewhat new addition to the performance case scene, their clear cases have been relatively well received, but not much has been said about their aluminum cases.

MSI K7N2 nForce2 motherboard
The MSI K7N2-L is aimed at the low-cost or value motherboard performance & overclocking market without all the usual extras that bump up the price. From a performance or overclocking standpoint this MSI K7N2-L motherboard performes very well compared to the other motherboards shown here.

Terratec Aureon 5.1 Sky review and the IO Plus Pocket Disk review
TerraTec: "The bundle is fairly extensive, and should be really interesting for those who like to tinker with sounds and music, rather than those who are looking for free games.
Those who are building their own HTPC should also be interested in this card, because the soundcard should be a perfectly good component in any home theatre where high fidelity is essential."

PocketDisk: "The design on the PocketDisk is remarkable; it looks professional, up-beat, straight forward and extremely slim. Such design elements make it a great companion on your key chain, pocket, anywhere that you could fit half a Cell phone."

Abit KD7 Motherboard Review
Abit has produced a good offering of onboard features. They have included a 6 channel audio solution, LAN, USB 2.0 and ATA133 through the Via Apollo KT400 chipset. Other things that are included on this motherboard are 4 DDR slots, but only 2 can used with DDR333 or DDR400, also known as PC2700 and PC3200. AGP 8x is also another important feature when considering upgradeability. The onboard LAN is only capable of 10/100 mbps, but at this time not many people have a use for gigabit LAN, which is included in some higher-end motherboards

Once more has given us the pick of the site and like most of us we went by looks. The Red Nest PC case caught our eye due to the front LED illuminated decorative strips. Is the Red Nest all show now that the it is in our hands?
