Antec EA500 EarthWatts 500W PSU

The new generation of power supplies has begun to amp up the competition for efficiency. Antec’s EarthWatts series is among the first to cause a stir in the PSU marketing strategy by emphasizing efficient power delivery over the multi-rail hype. The two +12V rails allow you to distribute your power more evenly, which will result in a more stable system, but they also deliver at least 80% of the power that they promise. Available in three models: 380 Watt, 430 Watt and a 500 Watt which delivers enough power for even the most cutting edge components. EarthWatts PSU's perfectly handle dual processor, dual graphics card, and just about anything else you can throw at it; all because of the added efficiency.

Thrustmaster Dual Trigger 3-in-1 Rumble Force Gamepad

The game controller in your hand can make all the difference, sometimes between liking a game, and loving it, or just for getting the game to do what you intend. Is the controller designed well? Does it slip in your hands? Is it built well? Does it allow customizing of its buttons? Some controllers offer features others don't. Scheduled to be released in September 2007, just in time for the holidays, the Thrustmaster Dual Trigger 3 in 1 Controllers represent their latest with six axis of movement. Benchmark Reviews offers an early review of the 'Rumble Force' version. It offers vibration feedback in addition to full PS2/PS3 and PC compatibility, button/mini-stick/d-pad reprogramming, new-generation mini-sticks, and all in a controller that is comfortable to hold and use.
