ABIT Fatality AA8XE:

Want to be a DOOM3 fraggin’ superstar? Well, even if you aren’t, you can have a motherboard that bears the name of one, the ABIT Fatality AA8XE. This is a nice board and all, but make sure you take a look at our review here and see what we thought of the marketing hype versus real world testing.

Intel fans rejoice! This is the most overclockable Intel P4 board that money can buy to date. Finally, here's an extreme board that can go the distance as long as you have the right components to go with it.

Athlon Versus Sempron:

Legion Hardware has the Athlon64 slugging it out with a Sempron of similar clock speed / rating. No real surprises here, the crew recommends the Sempron for every day stuff but advises gamers to look towards the Athlon64.

Bottom-line is the Sempron is an excellent budget processor that is certainly capable of getting the job done. The processor is ideal for office based computers, or for those that only wish to play the odd game now and then.

ATi Radeon X800Pro:

OcMosShop has the ATi Radeon X800Pro in house for a round or two of benchmarks. If you are still procrastinating that video card upgrade, this review might help you get off the pot and buy something.

Although this ATi Radeon X800 Pro has been on the market for a while now it is still is one of the best. This video card was easily able to chew up and spit out everything I threw at it without a stutter.
