Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
4GB is a lot of memory! - 4GB is a lot of memory!

techPowerUp looks at the TwinTech GeForce 8600GTS videocard. Techgage shows off a set of 4GB PC2-6400 SuperTalent memory. ViperLair wraps up this news post with its take on the MSI P6N SLI Platinum motherboard.

While a 680i chipset has obvious benefits over the 650i, after looking at this MSI solution I have to question if those extras will be worth the extra cost on most boards. The 680i chipset adds dual PCIe x16 graphics slots (and physics card provision), dual Gigabit NICs with DualNet technology, 6 SATA II and another 2 USB 2.0 ports, LinkBoost, SLI Ready Memory, extra overclocking and memory options. Now weigh those features against the cash saved by using the likes of the MSI P6N SLI Platinum, a board that has proven here today to be extremely capable in all areas. Unless you are running a high end SLI setup or planning on extreme overclocking then chances are you and your wallet will be just as happy with a 650i. While the MSI P6N SLI Platinum did come in slightly behind our 975x based Abit AW9D during CPU tests, it still performed similarly for multimedia and came out in front for games and memory.
