DNS issues on the weekend have left our news box a little bare.. feel free to send anything of interest to news@overclockers.com.au. I'll see what I can dig up in the meantime:

Chocoholics in NSW will be happy to hear that Mars and Snickers bars are back on the market again, having been removed a few weeks ago due to an extortion threat.

OCNZ have a 3-way roundup of 7800GTX video cards. In this round up, we will also take pricing, warranty, bundle value and ease of use into consideration, due to the physical similarities between the 7800GTX cards.

A recent study suggests violent video games make children aggressive. Another study showed that playing video games using flame-throwers and automatic weapons made them more "mean and angry" afterwards. Sounds very scientific. Reading articles like that makes me aggressive..

Xbit looked at two memory kits from G.Skill. We would like to introduce to you memory solutions from the Taiwanese G.SKILL company targeted for extreme overclockers.

Markoff has an article about the supercomputer race, as the market for serious numbercrunching enlarges. Procter & Gamble used a supercomputer to study the airflow over its Pringles potato chips to help stop them from fluttering off the company's assembly lines.

ExtremeTech wonder if sound cards are on the way out. I haven't bought a new sound card since the SoundBlaster Live! days - in fact I've mostly been using onboard sound since then. I may be cloth-eared but it all sounds the same through headphones to me. If you feel differently, TomsHardware have a review of Creative's latest card, the X-Fi, that might interest you.

3DProfessor examined the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 workstation card. How does it perform against its predecessor? Read on and be prepared to be completely blown away; these results even beat the SLI results posted only a few months back!

From Viljar: A couple of weeks ago ABC reported that ANSTO had decided to allow pictures of Lucas Heights to remain on Google Earth. But today on ABC news radio a representative from ANSTO repeated that they wish for the images to be blurred. Mixed signals, then. For Lucas Heights and countless other Australian Google Maps links, see our Wiki page full of them.
