Introduction




Every so often in a computer hardware reviewers life a product rolls by that catches his or her eye. More often that not it features something new, some new technology or feature that's bigger, faster or better in some way than the previous iteration. But that doesn't always have to be the case. Sometimes something can catch your eye without featuring the fastest, biggest or best and Leadtek have done just that for me with this little bundle.

Bundle is the key word here and it's what makes this product stick out. Often when purchasing parts for an upgrade or a new computer system, I've wished that you could buy cheap bundles of hardware, say a CPU, motherboard and memory where they come in the same box, are certified to work together without any problems and of course they are cheaper price.

So while you can get that at an online retailer who will maybe sell an MSI motherboard with an AMD processor and some Samsung memory, making the bundle at the final end of the retail chain, Leadtek have done it one step up the slippery retail slope and have decided to bundle their WinFast A250 LE TD (NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4200 graphics card) and WinFast K7N415DA (NVIDIA nForce 415D motherboard) together in a good looking box with a nice software bundle at an attractive price.

If you know about both products already, you'll have a fair idea about what this bundle enables you to do. But if you don't lets take a sneak peak at the spec of both part and then a look at the software bundle and just what Twinforce 2 gives you.
