I'm a bit confused regarding the Samsung recommendations. "Samsung SP1604N (comments relevant to SATA, 120 and 80G, and 8 mb cache models)", yet Samsung SP1604N is a 160gb with 2mb cache?

I was leaning towards the nexus as well myself and now I've ordered it. Now I just hope my Antec 3000b that I ordered yesterday reaches me in time for the psu :) Thx for the advice :D Btw how do I stop the poll? It looks really dominant at the forum index? (I apologize if I abused the poll function).

Which 300W psu?

The noise from my no-name 250w psu has simply become too much. I considered swapping the fan, but after I stopped the fan the psu still emminated a significantly loud noise (coil?) so I decided to buy a new psu instead. My system is really modest to say the least: ath 1800+, gf4mx (passively cooled)...

I have had an ultrax for about a year now and I'm completely satisfied with it. Unfortunately a new, narrower computer table means I lack the space for a full-size keyboard. I've been looking at Zippy's 610 / 620 keyboards, but I've been unable to find a retailer near me, nor have a been able to fin...

Am I the only one thinking the p180 announcement makes the much anticipated 3000b lose much of its appeal?

how did u get the degree symbol damnyou alt+248. After studying chemistry, where ° is used quite frequently it becomes second nature. Still it would be nice with just a key for ° and then get rid of keys like Scroll Lock, Pause Break, ¤ (generic currency sign wtf?) etc... Looked it up and it seems ...

Since everyone agrees Sonata's fan placement behind harddrives instead of in front is bad, wouldn't it also be better to place the fan in front of the harddrives in the p180 psu duct?

I too would like another color mix than black with the alu look. White gives a much more exclusive look and also make dust less visible. Would be nice if a alu/white edition was released. I've got a few questions (I know most of them probably will be answered in the upcoming review but this is a dis...

the 250gb 7200.8 seems a lot more expensive than a 200gb 7200.7 :( .. is this likely to last for long or is it just 'its brand new we'll charge what we like' stuff? Looking at the development of the Danish prices the uk should experience something similar: http://www.edbpriser.dk/Listprices.asp?ID=...
