16mb TREK ThumbDrive Secure
The ThumbDrive Secure is a very nice piece of equipment to be carrying around! If you are sick and tired of having to worry about those big old floppies getting torn up in your floppy drive, then get one of these babies! You'll never want to use a floppy again; I can guarantee that! You shouldn't have to worry about data corruption anymore because this is a solid state device... meaning there are NO moving parts.

ThermalRight SK6+ HSF
The install of the sink was a bit tricky. The back side clipped down onto the fingers very easily. The front side clip is set by using a small flat screwdriver. The screwdriver clip notch is not very tight and the screwdriver slipped out on my first attempt, but luckily I was prepared and had thick piece of rubber under the clip area. The bottom of the heat sink was highly polished and free of any burs or rough places and made good contact with the cpu core. I applied a small amount of silicone paste which was supplied with the unit and booted up.

Gigabyte Maya II Radeon 9700
Overall the results from this review are what one would expect. Aside from some brief glimpses of greatness in the SPEC ViewPerf7.0 benchmark by the Gigabyte card, the lower clock speeds of both the GPU and Memory kept it from having a chance against its faster kin. This is not to say the card is without merit. The card never experienced any sort of instability when running at normal clockspeeds, a testament to both Gigabyte and ATI for their hardware production and driver development. The card does come with a great software bundle, definitely more than you'd get from ATI. But in all honesty, if you are shopping for a Radeon9700, make sure you are getting a Pro. Gigabyte does produce a Pro Model which is definitely worth your consideration.
