Driverheaven checked out ATI Radeon X1900XTX overclocking, while TechReport compared some GeForce 7900-series cards on the nVIDIA side.

Tweaktown report on performance with the new ATI Catalyst 6.5 drivers. Apart from the performance improvements you can see below, Adaptive Anti-Aliasing has been added to the Radeon 9550 and above models. Originally Adaptive AA, which is a feature which adjusts its detail level depending on the performance, was only seen in the X1000 series of cards.

OCW looked at the relationship between CPU multiplier and memory speed on AM2. There is something that we would like to share with you regarding the CPU multiplier and actual memory speed of your RAM modules.

LegitReviews coupled Corsair's PC2-6400C3 with AMD's AM2 processors. Today we take a look at 667MHz versus 800MHz modules, different memory timings, and a 2GB kit versus a 4GB kit of low latency memory. We managed to increase DOOM 3 performance by nearly 19 percent as a result.

HWZone also examine how much DDR2 benefits AMD CPUs thanks to the new AM2 platform.

Kentang noticed that a Windows Media Player 11 Beta has been released. The interface has been revised somewhat, but it pretty much otherwise looks the same.

From Grrr: Seeing as you guys like to post some 'old' goodies every now and then, I'm sure its time for a Dremples revival. As you may remember, Dremples replaces your desktop background with pretty textures that swirl and blur. It has some options to customise it, add your own textures etc. Get it from here.

PCStats have their A64 FX-62 and X2 5000+ AM2 CPUs review posted, while Bit-Tech focus on just the AM2 FX-62.

Techgage see what life is like with 4GB of RAM. There may not be a need for that now, but it won't take very long until it's commonplace in enthusiast PC's. I take 4GB worth of top end DDR1 and DDR2 memory, and relate my overclocking and performance reports to you.

Dan takes the "cool toy" idea in an unusual direction with a mechanical centipede. Everybody wants an army of giant robot spiders, but it's just not practical for everybody to have one. It's a public order issue. I'm sure you understand.
