[H]ard|OCP have a sexy new site design and with it, a review of Gainward's sexy new GF4 Ti4200 video card. They also reviewed Abit's IT7-Max, a "legacy-free" P4 board that apparently performs pretty well.

Xbit have an article comparing the i850E RDRAM-based chipset for 533MHz-FSB P4's with its newer DDR SDRAM-based equivalents (i845E and i845G). They also check out 333MHz FSB SocketA to see if it'd be worth AMD's while to release 2x166MHz AthlonXP's.

Gamespy have a Doom III Preview posted.

Accelenation checked out the 30-bit colour aspect of Matrox's new Parhelia-512 graphics chip.

We've seen this before but it's pretty cool, Rage sent in this underground reservoir cooling system.. clever idea.

New solar power technology from Andrew.

Some more hardcore cooling going on over at Hexus.

A coupla video things: mario bros thanks OneArmedMan and Star Wars Nerds, thanks wiam. Apparently funny but might also be offensive, both seem too large for my pitiful modem so I can't check. Update: Apparently the Star Wars thing is very funny. It's also very large. :)

Beast sent a link to an Australian 6-stroke engine design.. interesting.

A new low-cost supercomputer has been unveiled, powered by Transmeta Crusoe CPU's and running Linux.. info here, thanks Jason.

nVHardPage is apparently a GeForce Tweaking tool that has been recently updated.

NextWish reminds us that fans are important.. mmm, looks expensive. This looks even more expensive- like $1.5M, yowch.. thanks Leo.

Is there no end to the fantastic bargains on eBay? Thanks Roger.

Contests:
Win a Millennium Glaciator cooler by designing a logo on AOAForums.
Win an A7V333 and XP1900+ for sending an email on 4Peeps.
Win a GF4 video card for answering a question on 3DVelocity.
Apparently the MikhailTech contest from the other day is for USA+Canada only.. bummer.
