Soyo P4I875P Dragon2 Canterwood Motherboard Review
Tweaknews.net has taken a look at the Soyo P4I875P Dragon2 Canterwood Motherboard. Here is a snippit:
"Through my testing of this particular motherboard, the system was unreliable, the BIOS couldn't be updated and would reset itself when ever it wanted, the SATA would not work through the southbridge and the overclocking and overall performance was substandard when compared to an equally equipped motherboard from another manufacturer."

Explorer Technology FX5200 @ Techware Labs
Techware Labs has taken a look at Explorer Technology's Nvidia Geforce FX5200 offering. Here is a snippit:
"This market is the realm of the mortal video cards (you know, the ones that don't second as the room's ceiling fan). NVidia's cheaper card in this market is the 5200FX. There is no doubt that this card does not hold up to the other FX cards or even any in the ATI 9XXX series well. However, one must keep in mind that the 5200 is designed with the intent of making a cheap, consumer level card that is capable of DX9 applications."
