Special congrats to long-time OCAU Admin Manaz, who married his special lady Kat (not an OCAU member) on the weekend. A beautiful wedding and reception!

If you're sad about AMD64 being too expensive for you, FuXToR has some good news: a new budget Athlon 64. The AMD Athlon 64 3000+ runs at 2.0GHz, the same clock speed as the Athlon 64 3200+ released in September. But the new chip comes with 512K bytes of cache, half the cache of its predecessor, an AMD spokeswoman said. Seems to be about half the price of the 3200+, too.

S3 have announced their DeltaChrome S8 video chipsets. LegitReviews previewed a card (and so did Tech-Report) while PCReview UK went to the European Launch.

Paul says you can keep your Pocket PC free from airborne viruses, for free, with a program downloadable here.

More basic case-modding from JSI today, covering Rheobus installation, thumbscrews and cathode lighting.

SpodesAbode wonder if overclocking GFX cards is really worth it. I'll admit it's been a fair while since I've bothered overclocking video cards.. too much heat for too little gain in most cases. However, I generally have fairly quick cards and that's all they've looked at in this article. Mid-range or lower-end cards need more of a boost and generally benefit more from it.

Cute WinXP Box PC on Mini-ITX, thanks The SHizz.

It seems there may have been some price-fixing going on in the world of DRAM manufacturers, thanks CustArdOz.

Hexus compared two pre-built A64 3200+ systems. They're UK vendors but it might give you an idea of what you want in your system.

Desert Combat 0.6 is out now, thanks Lazerin. New maps, new weapons and new vehicles as usual. Even a new aircraft carrier! Download the patch here on AusGamers, it's 251MB. Talk about it in this thread in our Games forum, thanks aftahours.
