Gigabyte G-Max CA2 SFF System

Size does matter when it comes to the world of Small Form Factors and the G-Max CA2 is one of the smallest. Despite its size it still packs in a great front panel connector with a media card reader as well as an AGP port. Gigabyte seems to have the right ingredients for success but do they have what it takes to challenge the big boys of the SFF world with their first Cube debut

Windows XP Tweaking Guide

I have broken this guide into 6 parts. Networking, file system, memory performance, freeing up memory, startup/shutdown and then the other stuff. I've tried to pack as much performance related tweaking here as I can but there's always more to be uncovered. I will update this article as frequently as possible. I know there's a million tweaks that I'm missing here but I am trying to keep this guide dedicated to tweaks that directly affect your performance.

Small Form Factor Shootout

Since the introduction of barebones pc, the consumer market for pcs couldn’t get anymore competitive. For a while, upgrading your computer is something arcane that only the technicians can do while the regular guy stares blankly at all the different components and blue screens of death. For me, I’ve been watching the barebone pc market for a while, looking for the perfect LAN gaming machine to emerge, one with both features, compact design and power. Today, we have 3 barebones pcs from MSI, Shuttle and FIC.

Neoseeker Server Project 2002

In early 2001, we were caught by surprise when our server started going ballistic. As more and more users became aware of Neoseeker’s existence, our traffic had slowly started to mount up - to the point where we were literally growing too fast for the server to keep up. We had already undergone several painful server transitions, and we were faced with the hard decision of HOW to alleviate the server load.

Ego Sys Wami Box Review

Recording high quality audio on your desktop or workstation is great, but often times it isn’t exactly convenient. At a gig, recording a live performance for instance. Sure a minidisk would be fine, but what if you wanted to put out a decent quality, live CD – you’d need some multi-track capabilities (at least two tracks, for the left and right channels).

Compaq iPAQ H3650 Review

Well first off I would have to say this is one sexy handheld. I personally love the look, very nice polished silver finish. I would say it pretty much looks like brushed metal but the casing is plastic. My first impressions of the size of the iPAQ was that it was of average size compared to other PDAs like the Palm IIIC and the Handspring Prism but then I found out that it was enclosed in a sleeve so I took that off and instantly the words “sexy” flashed in my mind.
