Futurelooks have posted up some gaming statistics. It's worth having a look to see if you fall under any of them. I do, but I'm not telling you which one it is. While you're over there, also check out Futurelooks' Top Five Complaints about Computer Hardware.

Those case modders who are handy with a hammer and chisel might want to check out this article on building a Wooden PC for some inspiration. Futurama fans might prefer something along the lines of this which I didn't find disturbing at all.

Scott from TechReport has posted up his thoughts on ATI and Stream Computing. ATI is using the phrase "stream computing" to refer to the class of applications more commonly referred to under the GPGPU label, an acronym which refers to general-purpose processing on a graphics processing unit. Some pretty impressive applications and results reported in that article.

HEXUS have posted their thoughts on how AMD are helping Intel get back its market share. Intel seem to be doing pretty well themselves with their Core 2 Duo chips. Both are represented pretty well in TechReport's October 2006 system guide.

Does anyone know what Mt. Rainier is? TheTechZone wonder if it is necessary given that that Vista will support it. Those (like me) who would benefit from know what it is, can go here first. Still with Vista, TR-News have investigated the affect of the new Aero interface on power consumption.

Decayed.Cell sent a link which seems to indicate that SATA may replace ATAPI as mainstream for DVD burners in 2007. Those more interested in what ports the hackers are connecting to rather than their DVD burner should head over to BigBruin to check out their write up on securing your networked computer/s.

A few guides to help you get through life. DvHardware have a guide to buying cheap laptops, PC Modding Malaysia perform a Biostar TForce P965 Deluxe VDIMM Pencil Mod and TweakGuides have posted their BF2142 tweak guide.
