Does WinXP Confuse and Annoy You? - Does WinXP Confuse and Annoy You?

If it does, then I highly recommend you take a few minutes to read PCstats' latest Guide - little known features of WindowsXP. The guide covers everything from the Hal 9000 voice narrator option, to system management tools that let you wrangle in bucking hard drives, or limit access to curious users on the network. My personal favourite tip is being able to see a quick list of all shared folders, all accessed folders, and all active programs; perfect if you think some person may be accessing your PC without your knowledge. Once you've mastered WindowsXP, you'll want to see PCstats review of some sweet PC4300 DDR533 memory from newcomers Buffalo Technology.

Good headphones are better than... well let's just leave that one up to you. I use a pair of Grado SR-80's around here, simply because they produce amazing sound quality. If you're looking for something a little more economical, why not click over to Ice's review of Sennheiser HD212 Pro headphones? To ensure your music isn't drowned out by the sound of screaming fan, see SilentPCReview for a look at Arctic Cooling's Copper Silent 2 heatsink. Once you've gone low-noise it is hard to go back, and one of the more inginuitive products to hit the market has been the Zalman ZM-2HC1, which OCprices test out; "Today we are looking at a product designed to silently chill your blistering fast hard drives--can the 2HC1 deliver the same level of performance as other Zalman products?"

When it comes to performance, there's nothing like the smell of Napalm...err Tachyon in the morning, so Hexus have saved us all a lot of time and reviewed the Tyan Tachyon G9600 Pro 128MB. Extremeoverclocking test out the i848P based MSI 848P Neo-S motherboard, while hardocp examine shuttles SN85G4.

The gang at hardwarezone have a few reviews to talk about tonight; the PrimeFilm PF3650 PRO3 Film Scanner and Chaintech Apogee FX71 videocard.
