Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-500 MCE

Hauppauge's WinTV-PVR-500 MCE is a good choice if you want to record two programs simultaneously, but it assumes you have a Media Center remote and the correct decoding software.

nVidia GeForce GTX 295

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 295 is the single fastest 3D card on the market, and for a relatively aggressive price. Added bonuses like power efficiency and PhysX support sweeten the deal, but even without those extra benefits, we'd still recommend this card for its processing power and comparative value.

iSocket Systems iSocket 3G

This plug is smart enough to know when its outlet doesn't have power, and uses cellular signal to keep you informed.

Asus ROG Avalon

The proof-of-concept motherboard-chassis hybrid combines to make it easier to install new components, but it's not perfect.

ATi Radeon 7000 Series

The Mac version of the ATI Radeon 7000 graphics card is a solid upgrade choice, especially for users of older, non-AGP Macs, but its lackluster 3D performance means gamers should go elsewhere.

Leia

Leia is a new technology that aims to revive interest in glasses-free 3D display.

GeForce 8800 GTS

No other 3D graphics card comes close to this bang for the buck, making the 320MB XFX GeForce 8800 GTS mostly an easy decision if you need a midrange upgrade. Nvidia still has to polish off its Vista software, and the sooner-or-later arrival of competing cards muddies the waters a bit, but if you need a midprice graphics card today, this should be your pick.

Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 955

Intel's new second-generation dual-core chip draws less power, leaving the door open for system builders to use it in new desktop designs. The performance picture still needs clearing up, but our preliminary results show some improvement over Intel's lackluster first-generation dual-core Pentiums.

ATI Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition

Unequivocally the most powerful graphics card on the market, ATI's Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition hands Nvidia's new card a stunning defeat.

Creative Labs Creative Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX

The Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX boasts a huge selection of multichannel sound-processing capabilities, I/O options, and bundled software and accessories. The inclusion of IEEE 1394 connections makes this a nearly perfect product.

PNY Verto GeForce 7800 GT 256MB

With a couple of exceptions, PNY's Verto GeForce 7800 GT card provides everything we like to see from a 3D-card package, including fast performance.

Matrox Millennium G550 AGP 4x, 32 MB

Dedicated 3D gamers need not bother, but home or business users will appreciate the solid 2D performance and a new approach to face-to-face communication over the Internet.

Logitech N110 Notebook Riser

The Logitech Notebook Riser N110 is a flexible ergonomic stand, but check first for a perfect fit if you use a thinner laptop.

Elgato EyeTV Hybrid

If you're a Mac user who's been looking for a way to add live TV and DVR functionality to your computer, the Elgato EyeTV Hybrid could be the solution you've been waiting for. However, in a world of ever-increasing streaming video options, you might find your needs for live TV recording to be ever diminishing.

Roxio Game Capture

While the Roxio Game Capture system might satisfy the ultranovice game capturer, many average users and do-it-yourselfers will be better served seeking alternatives.

Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-150

Whether you're looking to turn your PC into a DVR or simply want to watch TV on your desktop, the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-150 does the job at a reasonable price.
