Plenty of motherboard reviews to sink your teeth into today, with a look at several products sporting AMD's new 785G chipset. TechSpot also investigate Intel chipset offerings in the form of DFI's top end and Micro-ATX X58 boards. Many of you may be familiar with the original Chieftec Dragon case, a classic in its time, but can the updated model bearing the same name live up to this? ThinkComputers seem fond of it at least. Other reviews include a HD4890 from ASUS and some serious notebook power with Alienware's dual GTX 280M equipped M17x. Hit the links below to check out whatever takes your fancy.
