It has been an exciting week here at the Sharky Extreme Military Bunker and Resort. We've looked at a couple of GeForce2 Ultra cards in addition to a 1.2GHz processor from AMD. Naturally, the CPU and Video Card forums are hyperactive, with some good feedback regarding these reviews. Of course, if we're missing your opinion, then I guess the forums are just not active enough. Go ahead; try it on for size. Just like they say in the Big Red commercials, "it looks good on you."
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…

Rambus: A Mistake?
It seems that even Intel is now having second thoughts about their Rambus support. We all know that RDRAM prices kept the i820 from being much of a hit, but what will happen with the Pentium 4, slated to support RDRAM as well? This topic is sure to be hot.
Is Windows ME All That Good?
You may have noticed that we haven't moved our test systems to Windows ME yet, and there is a good reason for that. It's a young product and we haven't yet put our faith in it. Many of you have though, so feel free to share your Millennium Edition experiences.
Pencil O/C Thunderbird?
Several forum-dwellers have discovered our most entertaining method of overclocking. Ingredients? One AMD Socket A CPU, one #2 pencil, and lots of cooling. How did your batch of overclocking turn out?
Fastest Video Card On Earth
Um, right, we haven't even seen a Voodoo5 6000 yet and already we're salivating over 23 VSA-100's on the same 5 square-foot board. Hey, it's a joke, chill out!
Ethics: Where Do You Draw The Line
While we rarely promote the Off Topic forum, this post was chosen because it gives a little insight as to where your peers stand on ethics. Interesting, to say the least.
Not As Popular As Ymaster!
Visitors to the forum know Ymaster as one of the most frequent posters (mainly to boost his post count though). Nonetheless, just as the title states, no one is as popular as Ymaster - he's all that and a box of Triscuits.
