Small form factor systems have become increasingly popular over the past year. The main reason for this is the availability of Mini ITX motherboards that have some of the same features as full-sized ATX motherboards. Having a smaller system means it is easier to take with you to LAN parties, takes up less space on your desk, and is able to fit in your home theater setup. Today we are taking a look at a case that is perfect for building a small form factor system.

Many of us also have to be budget minded when it comes to choosing our computer components, but in this day and age, that does not necessarily mean choosing bad quality parts to save money. Most of the time, you can find parts in the desired price range that perform well. One thing is for sure, most of the time your speaker system is one of the last things to be purchased, so there will be a limited budget left for buying those speakers. The good thing is there are plenty of options in the budget category of sound systems.
The Alienvibes S101 desktop speakers are one choice that offer you a 2.0 speaker system with the goal of accurate sound reproduction. The Alienvibes S101 feature all wooden cabinet construction for more accurate vibrations and a plastic front bezel that has a high gloss finish on it for style.

AMD's HD7970 has had quite a bumpy ride. When it was first introduced, it was received with open arms as it once again took the performance crown from NVIDIA. NVIDIA were not to be outdone though and the GTX680 put paid to AMD's celebrations. The GTX680 has held the crown over the past year however the waters have become less clear of late with some dramatic improvements in AMD's Catalyst drivers. While AMD have had a little longer to wring every last drop of performance from their flagship card, it is fair to suggest that both AMD and NVIDIA have mature drivers ready for download so what better card to test NVIDIA's resolve at the top of the charts with an overclocked, flagship HD7970 in the guise of MSI's R7970 Lightning.
