MSI Working on X58M micro-ATX
MSI is expected to come out with the X58M soonMSI is in the process of releasing its new micro-ATX – the X58M soon; the mATX will be based on Intel’s Core i7 hardware. The upcoming unit can be seen in the image on the right, courtesy of Techpowerup.
The micro-ATX race is really heating up with major players DFI and ASUS both unveiling their new units in the last few days. MSI is all set to join the race with its new offering, the X58M. The board really packs a punch with its six memory slots; seven SATA; one eSATA; two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots; and one open ended x4 and PCI slots each. The board also has integrated Realtek High-Definition audio and Gigabit LAN.
According to the report on Techpowerup, the board is likely to have overclocking jumpers on the base, though the chances of overclocking are slim due to the board’s six phase power. MSI has provided both IDE and floppy ports to augment the other hardware.
While the mATX is likely to take a few months to ship, MSI is expected to price it aggressively keeping in mind the stiff competition offered by both DFI and ASUS.

Hi there peeps, I havn't used a router before(never needed one) so I'll need suggestions on what to get.

I use virgin cable 20mb, at the moment I have my modem upstairs for my desktop pc, but now I need the internet for a pc downstairs too.

For the pc upstairs I'll have wired to the router, I sometimes use torrents so I need a router capable of doing that, downstairs pc would use wireless just using the internet normally.

Been thinking about getting the Netgear N WNR2000, what do you think? any suggestions?

Get one with 802.11n technology, its the newest and fastest one, (300mb transfer and 70m signal radius)

I just went and spent £95 on the D-Link DIR-655 haha :P (amazing for downloads and gaming)

oh yeah and whatever you are using to receive the wireless signal downstairs (if you havn't bought anything) get it with 802.11n too, if not at least if you get a router with this, it kinda future proofs you :)

Isn't the Wireless N standard still in drafting? I've heard that there are incompatibility issues between Wireless N products of different vendors as they use different technologies/forms of Wireless N.

Wireless N is fairly new but it's the thing to go for.
