If you are trying to silence a PC, there is little point in buying 120mm case fans and a silent CPU heatsink, if you don't silence the video card as well. Drop by SPCR for a look at fanless video cards from ASUS and AOpen.
As a bonus, PCPer interviews Regeneration, the creator of the ULI SLI patch.

Over the past few days I conducted an email interview with Regeneration. He's the man responsible for modifying the ULI "SLI Driver" (properly known as the PowerExpress utility) to run on chipsets not SLI-certified like VIA K8T890 and Intel 975X.

While Matrox's Parhelia never really caught on, it looks like the TripleHead2Go just might. With one innocuous little box, any video card can be coaxed to display over 3 monitors. Neoseeker takes Half Life 2 & Oblivion for a spin at 3840*1024.
If the reviews are a little ATI heavy for you, Ryan just published a review of the BFG 7900 GTX OC.
Introduction and Specifications
BFG has an overclocked 7900 GTX on the review block today. Is this the best card you can get for your next gaming system? And how does nearly $1200 on SLI sound?

NVIDIA has sent NGOHQ.com, the makers and host of the "SLI Patch", a Cease and Desist letter requesting (demanding) NGOHQ stop distributing the software that NVIDIA alleges circumvents their copyrights afforded to them under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA). The "patch" in question is software derived from the PowerExpress utility created by ULi that allowed "SLI" operation on ULi M1697 chipsets.

The Tech Zone is not impressed with the current state of videocard sales. Maybe I'm just suspicious, but it sounds like they bought a very expensive, top of the line video card just before Christmas.

CoolTechZone takes a sneak peek at Radeon's upcoming R600, the successor to the current R580. Much of the technology has simply increased in number or speed, though it is reassuring to hear it is expected to be fully compliant with Vista and DirectX 10.
