It seems I dropped the ball Sciby threw to me last night. Heh, whoops. *picks it up and starts running*

Rivastation have put the Radeon 7500 head to head against a GF2 Pro and a GeForce3.. I remember a lot of people started liking nVidia because of the monopolistic practices 3dfx was engaging in. Of course, they had a decent product - but there was more to it than that. It'd be hard to say that nVidia is acting in the spirit of pure competition at the moment.. so I wonder how many ATi converts there are? :)

It seems the Radeon 7500 is getting around.. Digit-Life have a review here, as well as some word of upcoming VIA P4 chipsets on their front page.

LoneWolf pointed out this mobo.. a perfect companion to the A7V266 we just reviewed: an A7V266-D. The newsbox email from Agg said "yes please!".. indeed. Yummy stuff.

Just on SMP Athlons, Anandtech have a review of the Tyan Tiger MP.. supposed affordable Athlon SMP for the rest of us. Basically, a highly cut down version of the Tyan Thunder that we previewed a while ago.

RobsGT4 points out that Hitachi are selling refurbished monitors on their Aussie website - not bad prices, but not up to the Gateway prices that we have recently seen. I suppose it's low monitor pricing for the we're-not-going-out-of-business world.

Guru3D have released a RC of version 3.1 of their GeForce Tweak utility.. good for, err, tweaking your GeForce?

AtlantaOC have covered the voltage mod that you can perform on Abit KT7A motherboards.

It'll be Friday soon.. bored at work? Sure you are. This is from Wokket. Not only will it kill your Friday, it'll eat into your weekend as well. Logic based flash games.. Procrastination: not just for students.

It doesn’t really seem like there is much news worth ranting about tonight. Oh well, you'll live I s'pose. If you got hooked to Sciby's what-am-I-listening to, at the moment I'm listening to Regurgitator's new album. I didn't like their last one, but I like this.
