- nVidia at Computex 2003

nVidia held one of the most upbeat product launches sessions I have attended at Computex 2003 in Taiwan a couple weeks back. If you want to see what all the fuss was about, head on over this way, where you can view an online video presentation of the event. You may even see me!

See Jen-Hsun Huang and others introduce the broad line-up of breakthrough products: nForce3, ForceWare and GoForce.

- Deal of the Day!

DellSB - PowerEdge 400SC Server with i875P Chipset, 2.0Ghz 400Mhz FSB, 128MB DDR, 40GB HD, 40x CD-ROM, and AGP Slot for $224 after Rebate with FREE Shipping! More information at our Deals section!

This deal is set to expire tonight, but with the number of people that will order it, it may be pulled earlier. Get in quickly or be left out. The PowerEdge 400SC is an Intel i875P chipset based server with an AGP slot, which means you can pretty easily turn it into a gaming, multimedia, or graphics workstation. Leon and I both own one of these and we love it. It is compatible with 533Mhz and 800Mhz processors (hyperthreaded too), there's built in 2 channel S-ATA, there are 6 USB 2.0 ports, there's built in 10/100/1000 ethernet, 4 PCI slots (with both 5.0v and 3.3v universal support), ADI 198x audio, and loads of other features. The AGP and audio are not "officially" supported by Dell, but they work. What a steal for $224 shipped after rebate!
