The news stopped for a while. Blame Bill Gates. Blame Gentoo Linux. Blame them all. I got a new HDD for linux and the dual boot didn't go well for a long, long time.
However, you came to read about things. Things like computer things:
posts a review of the Asus A7V8X. It looks pretty tricked out, with LAN, Serial ATA, and a few other bells and whistles.
reviews the Athlon XP 2800+. I'm guessing it's fast.
Hawrdware Zone, yet again
reviews the EPoX 4G4A+ 845G motherboard. It's a good board, but still only AGP 4x.
posts a review of the ATi Radeon 9700 Pro. It blazes, it smokes, and you probably don't really need it. But those bragging rights would be killer...
