Issue #3 of NN (nerd news)
"This board is loaded with all the latest features, including a pair of Gigabit Ethnernet slots and lots of tweaking options, but the big news, of course, is the dual graphics capability. Between the two PCI-E x16 slots, the A8N-SLI has a card that plugs into a connector that looks much like the SO-DIMM connectors used for laptop expansion RAM. The mobo ships with the card in the single video card position, where it routes all 16 lanes of PCI Express connectivity to graphics slot one. However, for SLI, one may turn the card around 180 degrees and reinstall it. In dual video card mode, eight PCI Express lanes are directed to graphics slot one, and eight lanes to slot two."

Thermaltake Shark Case
"The Shark is a great case. Although it has its flaws, it was truly a pleasure working with it. We are thrilled to see 120mm fans standard, as well as their method for installing the external drives. Sometimes a product will sound great in terms of its specifications, but will fail to deliver on the slight things. Fortunately the Shark isn’t one of those products."

Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L Motherboard
" The new ATI RX330 chipset looks to be full of potential, its memory compatibility is even being validated by the company. Currently Gigabyte has exclusive manufacturing rights to this chipset, so if you want an ATi Radeon RX330 based motherboard, the only vendor that can currently supply it is Gigabyte."
