Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9600 Pro video card
There are a few manufacturers who are using the ATi R350 chip and today we take a look at Sapphire's version of the 9600 Pro. The Sapphire Atlantis 9600 Pro comes bundled with some really nice features such as TV-out, Redline overclocking software, and a full version of Soldier of Fortune II. Sapphire has been a big supporter of ATi graphics chips, making cards based solely on ATi's chips.

PCToys Power Maxx 520W Aluminum Power Supply Review
The rear portion of the PCToys Power Maxx 520W Aluminum Power Supply has all the standard features found on most PSU units with some new enhancements. There are two central 80mm dual ball bearing fans which have been postioned as front and rear exhausts to circulate all the hot air from inside the aluminum chassis. An additional slim profile 80mm fan has also been included as a top exhaust fan which again assists with air circulation and cooling. Each fan is controlled by a mini 3-position switch, which allows you to toggle the noise levels for each fan to make this unit practically silent in its operation

Samsung SyncMaster 191N LCD Review
In the physical appearances, the SyncMaster 191N certainly stands out from the crowd of competitive 19 inch LCD monitors. One amazing feature which the 191N offers is the pivot feature which is still not very common in the market of LCD monitors. The pivoting arm which is part of the base allows the 191N to be displayed with the view of portrait or landscape

Albatron FX5200U GeForce FX 5200 Ultra 128MB VGA
With no image enhancements enabled, i.e. FSAA, the FX5200Ultra is just a budget video card, around 15% faster than a standard FX5200. However, the table starts to turn when FSAA is enabled, thanks to FX5200Ultra's high memory clock and the efficient memory management; Albatron FX5200Ultra is up to 40% faster than a FX5200

CoolerMaster Aero 7+
Overall this is an outstanding CPU cooler. It performs better than the roaring Volcano 11 and looks cooler, sporting an innovative blower design. The 3.5" mount simply won't mount, but CoolerMaster is working on a solution. I would also like to see an optional temperature monitor to control fan speed like the similarly priced Volcano 11, maybe in a future blower fan? If you are looking for a CPU cooler that does the job, looks great, and remains quiet, look no further.
