Having a powersupply that is stable is one thing, but having one that is as attractive as it is stable is quite another. The Kingwin Mach 1 600W PSU, as reviewed at Club OC, is exactly that. With a plentiful amount of blue LEDs, this PSU will be at home in any modded case.
Or, for a more unassuming PSU, check out Lee's review of the CoolerMaster iGreen Power 600 PSU here on PC Perspective.

The HardwareZone reivews MSI's K9N Platinum, an nForce 570 based motherboard. It has most of the extras you would expect from that chipset, with a little trimming, especially on the PCI-E side, making it cheaper while still having some extras, and staying rock solid.

The RAIDMAX X-1 gets back to basic case design, with a few extras. There's no moulded plastic front, it is simply black and silver although there is an integral display included. Add the 120mm fan, and you have a pretty well designed case, though I'm sure once Modders-Inc has finished with it, it will look quite different.

Tweaknews has been keeping an ear to the ground at Computex, and they seem to feel that Intel believes the ATI - AMD merger is likely. No word on Intel taking nVIDIA out on a date though, everyone know nVIDIA's chipsets like hanging out with Opterons.

ExtremeTech has written an article describing ways to get your music CD's onto your hard drive, and then broadcast them to your home audio system. I guess those 750Gb drives will be selling a little faster.

Just like Anand admits, I am also having trouble with the fact that DX10 video cards will be consuming 300W of power, and either want their own dedicated PSU, or for your systems PSU to be at least a kilowatt. That's not all they spotted at Computex, but it is the most shocking.
