VIA KT880 Chipset:

For those of you using an AthlonXP processor looking to upgrade your mainboard, this VIA KT880 chipset review at Tech Report is for you. Great performance and loads of features, the KT880 is definitely an attractive socket A solution.

The KT880 was slightly faster than the nForce2 Ultra 400 in almost all of our application benchmarks, making it easy to recommend the chipset to enthusiasts looking to wring as much performance as possible from the Socket A platform.

Mirra PFS:

Sudhian has reviewed the Mirra Personal File Server. The Mirra PFS is very expensive and this review does point out that building a real PC for the same price is a viable option. With that in mind, you have to love this quote:

Although Mirra primarily sells the unit as a solution for home users and the technically clueless, this is a system with appeal to anyone who wants a backup solution they donít have to design and test themselves.

Free Stuff:

I have a handful of those translucent green Halo Edition X-Box consoles up for grabs at Hypothermia. One X-Box bundle will be given away each day for the next five days, so get in it to win it!

We have a handful of brand spanking new Halo X-box bundles to give away for the next week. These X-Box consoles are the translucent green kind ( they look like X-Box developer kits ) that say "Halo Edition" on the front. Each console comes with a copy of Halo.
