Hardware Roundup: Thursday Edition

Nemo - April 3, 2008 04:26AM in Affiliate News

After a hectic week with a lot of good reviews coming out we find today's roundup has several cooling-related articles with reviews on case fans, CPU coolers and a VGA cooler roundup. Mention networking gear and you'll likely think of makers like Linksys, Netgear or D-Link. Mention ASUS and you'll probably think of motherboards, but they have a 802.11g router in their lineup as well, reviewed today by Techgage. With all the recent PCIe video cards released recently and this week's news dominated by NVIDIA's 9800GTX cards, it's difficult to remember that there are a lot of users out there still on the old AGP format cards (you remember AGP don't you?). The last AGP card we saw was the ATI 1950 Pro. Now, PowerColor has released a AGP Radeon 3850 card and Fudzilla and has look at it.
