A Walk About Around SLS (6-5-2005)
VR-Zone brings you the usual weekly walk around Singapore’s most popular IT shopping center once again! Click here to keep updated with this week’s new products found in Sim Lim Square!
As the weekend comes, it’s time for our weekly SLS walk about…
First, over at The Hardware Place, we found some really cheap
performance memory. The PDP Systems Patriot PEP3200512LL, rated at CAS
2-3-2-6, and priced relatively low at $ 125 per 512MB stick, it’s
one of the best bargains for such CL2 memory. With Winbond chips inside
(could be identified by the 2 shiny metal filings on the sides of the chip),
this might be interesting for those who has high voltages to spare.

heatspreader. Great for case modders!

latest in technology. This mATX board is priced reasonably at $ 149,
