    Valve's Multi-Core Source Engine

    Just read up a little on valve and what direction they are taking the source engine with respect to multi-core CPU's. They say dual core is good, quad core is excelent. In fact, Gabe Newell said that they have been putting off buying new hardware to wait for kentsfield. I have been really...

    So is nF4 still the best 939/PCI-e platform?

    Soon, with the coming of G80, it will be time to ditch the old AGP system. Sad, I know; but all good things come to an end. So, I have a 939 X2, and will obviously need a 939 board. Last time I researched this, it seemed that the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR Expert was the best all around...

    Error on the frontpage?

    stopping kids from going to R rated movies is law, I believe Clinton made that one. I believe you might have meant the "explicit content" sticker on CD's, because that is not a law, it is volentarily enforced (or not) by teh store in question.

    A 4800+ X2 might be a better deal than a conroe for me...should I upgrade at all?

    I have a 3000+ @ 2.2 GHz ATM, limited by my shitty mobo. The chip can do 2.75GHz no sweat in an nForce based mobo. I am going to upgrade to a PCI-e based system soon in the near future, because my 6800GT is getting dated, and I really like the G80; so upgrading the mobo is a must. For 939...
