Seagate’s Barracuda 7200.@ The Tech Report

Hard Drive capacity is still growing, but not at the pace it once did.?You can get large drive capacities at truly amazing prices thesdays. Snip: "AT FIRST GLANCE, having 400GB of storage capacity on a desktop hard drive seems a little ridiculous. It raises the question: do everyday users or even enthusiasts really need that much storage? They just might. With PCs increasingly becoming entertainment hubs tasked with storing audio and video in the highest possible quality, gigabytes can get eaten up pretty quickly. Gone are the days when 128KB MP3s were enough; lossless audio formats that take up much more space are all the rage these days. PCs that double as PVRs also need extra capacity, with high quality recordings consuming more than 2GB per hour. And that’s not even high definition content." Read the review HERE

Albatron PX925XE Pro-R @ Viperlair

Whether you’re a fan of Intel’s Extreme Edition or non-EE CPUs, you’ll want a solid board to match. Snip: "The Albatron PX925XE Pro-R is a fine board but not one that a true hardcore enthusiast should aim for; if balls out overclocking is your thing you should look elsewhere. That said, if you have a 200FSB CPU, you can feel safe in the knowledge that the 925XE will allow you headroom up to 266FSB at least, but the same can be said of other 925XE boards."
