XbitLabs wonder if we really need 2GB of memory, and compare six new coolers from Thermaltake.

Tech-Hounds have part two of their SLi Myths article posted. However, performance is not the only feature of SLI. In addition to multi rendering, SLI can be used in SLI antialiasing mode.

From Wizzard67: The Register reports AMD's new socket M2 being spotted on a pre-production MSI K9N Platinum motherboard by Dutch site Tweakers.net.

BleedinEdge cover building a test bench, while IceTeks reckon a backup server is vital.

Some interesting new Wiki pages: Build A PC, a Mobile Phone Super Wiki and Programs and Links for Overclockers.

Sciby spotted the McDonalds Video Game, a fairly cynical simulation of running a McBusiness. Enjoy the game before it gets sued off the net. :)
