  • As you may have noticed, this week Sharky Extreme has been all about video cards. We've sorted through several of the most popular boards on the market, and the forums are buzzing with feedback. Whether you concur with our opinion or think we were strung out on Red Bull is inconsequential. What is important is that you let your voice be heard in a place where the Sharky Extreme staff will respond, where your friends in the hardware community will exchange banter, and where you don't have to worry about a gunship targeting your house because you spoke your mind.

    What better place than SharkyForums.com? Each week we take several of the most popular/insightful/controversial threads and present them to you for easy digestion. Feel free to jump in at any time (it's kind of like jump rope, in a way) and discuss, as we've added links on each spotlight page so you can easily add your own comments and contribute to the debate! If your repartee strikes us as useful, humorous, or otherwise entertaining, it stands the distinct possibility of being featured next week. Without further ado…

    In what appears to be one of the longest threads in the history of SharkyForums.com, our recent High-End Video Card Shootout gets attacked, defended and compromised upon. The good news is nobody got hurt and the discussion ended in a peaceful manner. What did you think of the Shootout? We'd love to hear your feedback.

    What Linux Is Best For A Newbie
    While we won't claim to be Linux whiz kids, threads like this one are a sure-fire way to get you on the road to becoming one. It appears that Mandrake is the best build to start with, although I've heard great things about Redhat 7 as well.

    Test Your Band
    Why do I have the feeling that this one will be popular? In an attempt to maintain a shred of dignity I'll refrain from posting my bandwidth specification, but we'd all love to see what you're getting!

    Paint Shop Pro or Adobe Photoshop
    Graphics designers are passionate about their work, and the products they use. Paint Shop Pro is often said to be the easiest product to use, while Photoshop is arguably more powerful. Have an opinion on this one?

    The Biggest Bottleneck
    We've recently opened up a Highly Technical PC Forum for those of you with backgrounds in engineering or CS (or even a general interest in all things technical). Our first feature from this forum concerns the biggest bottleneck in today's high-end systems. Look out, this one goes in-depth!

    What Was Your First Computer?
    It's hard to deny attention to a 97-post thread. The question is pretty self-explanatory, what was your first computer?
