Abit NF7-S
Just a few months ago, NVIDIA pushed VIA aside as the performance leader of chipsets for the Athlon XP family of processors. NVIDIA’s first foray into the motherboard chipset world came with the original nForce. This chipset was no slouch, yet it did not bowl over the market very long as VIA quickly took back the performance crown with the release of the KT333. VIA not only matched NVIDIA in performance but they were able to add features unmatched by NVIDIA until the release of the nForce2 board last winter. Now the situation has changed as VIA has been unable to reach the bar set by the nForce2 for some months now

Xoxide X-Sonic Mid-Tower Case Review
Manufactured by Chenming, the X-Sonic is a relatively low-priced Mid-Tower ATX case that continues Xoxide's line of affordable aluminum cases. Gone are the days where the only aluminum cases were high-priced Lian-Li models; the market is now flooded with lower-priced aluminum computer housings that almost anyone can afford. But a downside to this is that there are many sub-par and low quality aluminum cases that you simply would not want your computer to be in. Does the X-Sonic unfortunately fit into this category, or is it worthy for your system?

Thermaltake Xaser III V1000A
When you think of Thermaltake, the word "performance" comes to mind. Thermaltake deals mostly with cooling your computer, and has products that branch out into other fields but remain true to the original game plan. In the past, Thermaltake created the Xaser II series of cases, which offered additional style and functionality to the original Chenming cases. Now they have released the Xaser III, which is the next step in cool cases. Is this case really a unique performance case, or did they just modify another case and sell it as their own?
