The ATI All-in-Wonder HD Video Card has a PCIE Interface of 2 compared to the older video cards which has a PCIE Interface of 1. This Video Card is based on the RV635Pro core which is built on the 55 nanometer manufacturing process & has 378 million transistors.

The Nesteq EECS 700 Watt Ultra Quiet Power Supply has all the right ingredients. First and foremost it's got quality, efficient power and enough of it to juice high end computer systems. It also has lots of leads, compact size, ultra quiet 135mm fan and a modular design. This product even comes with EECS or Enhanced Easy Connection System which is on the SATA and molex leads. It's basically a 6pin female connector that allows other cables or adapters to be connected to it.

I've reviewed many TV Wonder products and they've all been very good, but AMD's ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo PCIe x1 takes the cake! Why this TV Tuner product is exceptional has mostly to do with the 650 Pro chip. This particular product has two tuners, one tuner is responsible for receiving analog TV channels and the other receives digital and HD channels. It's also capable of receiving FM radio. I should also note that the 650pro chip doesn't require any cooling, so it's a perfect option for a silent HTPC. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.

The HIS X1950Pro 256MB AGP Video Card is a welcome addition for anybody who still has an AGP setup. The new standard is PCI Express, but that would mean replacing motherboard, memory, and other computer hardware. This can be very expensive and certainly is not within everyone's budget. The cheaperst option is simply replace the video card. This product has all the current technologies and will support the very latest games.

The HIS X1650XT series of Video Cards offer tremendous value. When combined in a CrossFire configuration they still offer great value, but performance goes way up! As a matter of fact, two X1650XT Video Cards will outperform a single X1950Pro Video Card in some instances. If you're on a budget and want a CrossFire setup, get 'em!

The HIS X1650XT 256MB Video Card is certainly not the fastest Video Card on the planet, but it does offer a lot of value. Since it is very affordable and supports the latest games, many price-conscious buyers will be interested. If you are not running at a high resolution and don't have all the eye candy turned on, this video card might be for you. Watch the Video to find out more...

The SteelSound 5H v2 USB is an optimized version of the original SteelSound 5H USB headset. I reviewed the original headset in 2005 and thought it was an excellent product. V2 now has an improved microphone, larger and more comfortable ear cushions, additional frame pressure so it fits securely on your head, and a few more technical improvements. If you're in the market for an affordable headset that has lots of features and looks great, keep this product at the very top of your list. Watch the Video to find out more...

The Enermax Chakra Case will lift your spirits. At least with a name like chakra, it should! What does chakra mean, you ask? Well, look up chakra at www.thefreedictionar... and you'll get, "One of the seven centers of spiritual energy in the human body according to yoga philosophy". In this case I believe the spiritual energy comes from the massive 250mm fan. This is one of the few cases on the market with a reversible 250mm fan. It's a very welcome addition in today's high-performance computers and it will have no problem keeping everything cool.

The SilverStone Temjin TJ08 has a clean look and great design. The front is aluminum, but the remainder is steel and weighs in at only 5.5kg (12lbs). There are two 5.25" and two 3.5" external drive days and two internal 3.5" drive bays. This case also has a removable motherboard tray which makes installation of a motherboard, CPU, cooler, & memory simple. One big plus is the two quiet 120mm fans included with this product. This is a very unique feature for a micro-ATX case and will provide exceptional cooling inside the case. This is a full featured, affordable micro-ATX solution.
