You know the good part about doing news? (Well, apart from the cash donations rocking up on my doorstep) I get to check out all this cool gear before anyone else. :)

First up tonight, AOpen are having a case modding competition. Entries in picture form MUST be received by February 1st, so you better hurry. Some pretty cool prizes too. Thanks Matt.

JimX sends us a Calendar with a difference. This one is hand drawn, and ........ well, check it out for yourself :)

Now you can point your wristwatch at a woman's cleavage and NOT look like a complete moron :) Thanks Scott

WHQL Detonators, Version 23.12 are apparently available from Asus' FTP site. I say apparently, coz I haven't had a look myself yet. Thanks Volnar.
(EDIT : This thread here pointed out by Avadin, contains some various concerns and observations about these drivers. Might want to check it out first, before installing them)

If you are a 3DFX zealot from ages back, you might be interested in this article over at Maximum PC. VooDoo5 6000 for $2150? Not this little black duck...

Check out a write-up on Via's new Vlink 512 MB/s technology over on TheInq. Sounds rather sweet. Cheers again, Scott.

SLCentral.com has posted an article entitled "Intel Pentium 4 Northwood Vs. AMD Athlon XP 2000+ Pure Numbers". Last week they posted benchmarks of the P4 Northwood and promised to compare it against the recently announced Athlon XP 2000+. True to their word, here is the scoop.

Haha, it's about time there was one of these. Announcing Xtreme Tek's Dumbass Database! Instead of containing technical benchmarks, it contains a collection of dumbasses :) Love it already..

Ever wondered if you could integrate your computer into your home theater system? Well it might be easier than you think. Design Technica have all the info.

Hadamona send us word on the new KM266 chipset from VIA. Check out the full story over at VIA.

I don't know what's more disturbing. The fact that they are bringing out a 3rd service pack for Windows 2000, or that the last 2 were roughly 100meg a piece, or that the latest one (Service Pack 3) will incorparate over 800 fixes! 3D Spotlight have the goss.

Our own Dennis_B has a repost of his CPU bridge cutting efforts using a power supply here in our forums. If you haven't joined our forums yet, what the hell is wrong with you? :)

Wanna check out some info on the new AMD Hammer processor? Scott sent us the link, and here it is.

Next time you open the drawer and see a few RAM modules laying there, and dunno what the breed and specs are, it might pay you to check out this page. Thanks Chris.

More later ...........
