    Valve's graphics engines are rather cpu bound as far as I know, are you overclocking that lil'6300?

    F-Secure Says Conficker Worm is Widespread

    I'd google and have a quick look, only needs a MS patch and AV scan/dat update. Not too hard to remove if infected, requires a reboot. Pain in the arse if it gets in, network capable, kills shares as well as other funky stuff. Serious enough for us to patch 2k+ boxes a few weeks ago.

    RC Helicopter With .45 Caliber Gun

    Crysis Warhead perf

    Warhead ran terribly at first for me, vista x64 quad@3.2, 4870 and 4gb ram. Lag when turning around, fps dropping to unsatisfactory levels etc. With a little tweakage, full defrag (drive was 44% fragmented O_o), killed some useless taskbar progs that had escaped my...

    UFO Hacker Loses Extradition Fight

    I think the fact that these government departments don't enforce a more secure password policy is quite worrying, although most people who have worked in IT for a large corporation would of seen very similar things. It's the law of numbers I suppose... with enough people you'll almost...

    Doesn't Crysis make you wonder...

    We need games like Crysis that push the technical envelope onwards, just in the same way we did when Q3 was released... It's a simple as that.

    Sapphire Radeon HD 2900 XT CrossFire @ [H]

    After a good long few years with ATI, 9500 (modded) X800 and most recently the X1900, I made the move to the 8800gts 640meg. It's rather disappointing to see even with crossfire, ATI have dropped the ball. Hope they can pick it up with the next generation of cards....

    q6800 having trouble with unreal engine games

    This problem is related to all dual/quad cores (HT on older Intel cpu's) and varies from system to system depending on hardware - AMD dual cores suffer in exactly the same way.
