FPS! Its all about Frame Rate. Want to have a kick-arse machine for games, then you need hooge FPS. CNET have found the Five Fastest off the shelf machines for gaming.

It looks like our Solar System just got bigger with the discovery of a 10th Planet, although the claim of it being "A Planet" is under dispute. Either way, we have a hacker to thank for the release of the information.

I mentioned yesterday that the Beta 1 version of Microsoft's Internet Explorer v7 has seen improvement over previous versions. Over on Ars-Technica they ponder over whether the CSS support is good enough. Keep in mind that this is a Beta1 release.

ATI is all set to support the new OpenGL ES 2.0 specification. In this press release ATI talk about aiming it towards handheld devices.

In another press release, AMD have launched their Opteron 100 Series Processors with ECC unbuffered memory support. "Based on overwhelming customer demand in an increasing number of critical markets for one-way servers and workstations, AMD is expanding the types of memory supported by the AMD Opteron 100 Series processors. This new type of memory support is now the standard for the 100 Series".

For those people looking to get into Digital Photography but who want something more than a point & shoot camera, ZDNet have a Digital SLR Buyers Guide. They go over some of the Pros and Cons of an SLR camera and other considerations when deciding if a DSLR is for you.

Just a reminder to finish off with this morning. If you come across any news, reviews, or even just something amusing, send a link to news@overclockers.com.au and we'll post it if its news worthy.
