[H]ardNews 4th Edition

Galaxy Zeus 5900XT:

If you are a NVIDIA fan, the best bang for the buck is the recently released 5900XT. Guru3D has a review of the Galaxy Zeus 5900XT for your viewing pleasure. Never heard of a Galaxy Zues 5900XT? You aren't alone.

You know what, this product is what the GeForce 4 Ti4200 is compared to the GeForce 4 Ti 4600. Pure value versus really good performance, yet this a DirectX 9 class product.

ASUS P4R800-V:

The Radeon 9100 IGP has made a nice splash in the mainboard market. People on the look out for a decent P4 mainboard with good integrated graphics will want to check out this ASUS P4R800-V at T-Break.

Overall, we are impressed with the ASUS P4R800-V Deluxe. For the money, it doesn’t get any better than this. The 9100 IGP will be enough to satisfy the needs of a casual gamer. To date, the 9100 IGP is the only integrated Direct X 8.1 solution available.

Mainboard Sales Flat:

Digitimes is reporting that March mainboard sales are flat this past month. ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and ECS all showed little movement when compared to the previous month.

Taiwan’s first-tier motherboard makers estimated that shipments would remain flat on-month in March due to reduced OEM orders and sluggish sales in domestic channels amid political uncertainty, according to sources at the companies.
