I have been lurking
Hi.
I'm Dave. Currently living and teaching in China for the past 3 years. Still can't speak a word of Chinese.

I have been recently checking out every part of this site to catch up on what is new and current in computers. Last time i built a computer was in 2004 i think with an albatron motherboard, have they gone now? No more power of the albatross? it also had an agp graphics card.

Thanks too Andrew, i have been checking out newegg.com.cn and also 360buy is another safe one here in China.

Should have my computer sorted out soon.

Welcome to the forums! Albatron is long gone, at least in the US.

So Albatron have gone and Asrock is new, to me at least.
I think Albatron had to go really. "Power of the Albatross" is really just a silly slogan.

ASRock started as a more budget version of ASUS but is starting to make a lot of high quality products.

yeah there is something wrong with it but English is so popular that i never need to use Chinese.
