Compro VideoMate TV Gold+ TV Tuner Card
Compro VideoMate TV Gold+ is an easy to use TV capture card, with a handy remote and a fairly comprehensive package. The biggest selling point of this card is the ability to turn on/off PC based on user's recording schedule. This is a very useful feature for those who do not have PC on for 24/7

Vastech 2 Port KVM Review
If you do computer repair or just need a KVM for testing purposes, then I would say this is the KVM for you. I mean this is the cheapest KVM I have seen yet! It functioned as it should have, and gave me no problems. It’s very small in size, and it would fit most anywhere

Cooler Master AeroGate I
Recently, we have introduced you to a number of new and innovative Cooler Master Controllers, starting with the Musketeer and a few days ago the AeroGate II. We started with these because they offered much more than what had been previously offered in fan controllers.

Nvidia nForce 3 Pro and Opteron 144 Performance Revealed
Until then we see that DDR400 support and new drivers have given a nice boost to performance for the nForce 3 and Opteron platform. While the P4 still wins just over half of the benchmarks the Opteron has definitely become much more competitive. With recent sightings of the nForce 3 Pro based Asus SK8N for as low as $199 suddenly the gap in price between a 244 Opteron/nF3 and 3.2GHz P4/875P motherboard isn't so large, and that does not take into account the lower pricing that 14X series Opterons will have.

Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB video card
Besides the usual cables as mentioned you get Return To Castle Wolfenstein, a classic FPS from Gray Matter and id Software, and Soldier Of Fortune II: Double Helix, another FPS classic from Raven Software. Both of these games are based on the Quake3 engine, which makes them relatively useless for utilising the 9800Pro to its fullest, but free games of any sort are always welcome

Romtec TRIOS II Mutli-Drive Selector
Welcome to TRIOS. The Romtec TRIOS II is a second generation high-tech A-B-C switchbox for IDE devices. The original TRIOS is probably best known for its ability to select between any one of three connected hard disk drives (HDD) at the push of a button. This allows running three separate operating systems on one machine without the complexity of setting up multiple partitions on one drive and the possibility of cross-partition corruption
