Yes, we know the AthlonXP 3000+ linked last night is fake, derr. :) Shame, woulda been nice to squeeze 8 of them into the 8-way Athlon SMP motherboard.. would crank out the 3DMarks with a 3DFX Voodoo5-9000 in it..

Dual 1GHz CPU's and a GeForce4 video card. Sounds like a grunty PC but it is, of course, the new PowerMac, thanks Scott. More info on the video here, thanks Barto. This is the first offical thing we've seen about the GeForce4 of course, but be warned, it's mostly Apple marketing-speak. :)

There's a new virus doing the rounds, thanks Michael. I got 3 of them last night actually, but an email from someone I've never heard of saying "new photos from my party!" with an executable attachment.. got deleted. Might pay to update your virus checkers, tho.

Icrontic have compared Crucial's PC2100 DDR memory with the TwinMOS PC2700 stuff we reviewed here a little while ago.

iced sent word of a new game Sidral, based on the Q3 engine.

Volnhar notes that there are Detonator 27.20 drivers on 3DChipset. These are modified beta drivers, so don't be surprised if they make do Horrible Things to your PC.
