- Hercules 3D Prophet All-In-Wonder 9800SE

Hexus have just gotten their hands on one of these feature-rich cards and written up a detailed review. It certainly isn't lacking bang for the buck either. If you're in the market for a feature-rich high-end card, it would definitely be worth your while to look at this gem.

Do you remember the Celeron 300A? The 2.4C? The TwinMOS with Winbond BH5? All of these kicked some serious ass because you could use them at a higher spec than intended, or mod them - remember B21 on the old Celerons for forced 100FSB loving? Anyway we have found a new one, the 9800SE, which you can open up the 4 extra pipelines easily and get the performance of a $500 card for $230! This is just crazy, and you have the AIW features for free! So here is a weekend project for all of you - go grab one from your local retailer and see how you get on. Hell, buy 2, because for sure they will sell fast.

- Nyko Wireless Net Extender

Aaaah, wireless. It's such a "hassle-free" word isn't it? to say it shouldn't be the way of the future would be a crime in most people's books, and it's certainly great to see advancements in this area at a substantial rate over the past year or so. Nyko's new Net Extender is yet another sign of many more products to be introduced to the wonderful world of wireless technology in the not too distant future. With thanks to Zack over at MyGamer, you can read up on the benefits to implementing one of these in your home /office.

Some people only have a high-speed Internet connection in one room. This can be a big inconvenience when trying to link up multiple computers or game consoles and Nyko's product supplies a solution to these problems. This device can be used with just about anything that uses an Ethernet cable. Laptops, home computers, and game consoles can now be used anywhere in the house or office.
