HWZone have a bit of a benchmark-fest going, with their Q3 2006 CPU Performance Charts posted. To better understand how they rank today along with the Core 2 series, we rounded up almost all available dual-core processors comprising of no less than 16 processors from the mainstream to the enthusiast class to form this article.

HWSecrets advise how to set up a RAID system. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks and with at least two hard disk drives you can setup them as a RAID array in order to increase the disk performance or to improve data reliability.

Hexus are not happy about Vista's EULA. Is Microsoft in danger of alienating the entire worldwide community of PC self-builders by new conditions it's imposing for the use of retail versions of Windows Vista? We think it is - unless it backtracks before launch time in the new year.

Here's an odd (and probably not safe for work) one: Hexus checked out which video cards are best for rendering naughty bits. Virtually Jenna is the official video game of Jenna Jameson and since it uses the popular ThriXXX graphics engine to render it we figured this would be the best combination to test out ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards to see who is best when it comes to adult gaming performance.

Speaking of which, there's a bit of an uproar about a recent trailer for DOA: Xtreme 2 on the Xbox360. See the trailer (again, not work safe) here. CAD's equally-disturbing take is here. :)

Murray spotted a bizarre little internet-connected rabbit thing. Talking, singing and waggling its ears, this rabbit interfaces with Internet content as a high-tech toy of the new millenium.

SilentPCReview have a silent PC mod that is fanless, recycled and.. made of wood. Well, the over-case is. The PC simply slides in through the open rear of the wood sleeve. A couple of wheels from an old scooter and a pair of casters make moving the heavy PC easier.

From Sil80: Incase you havenít announced it yet - Savage is now completely free. A great combination of FPS, RTS, and RPG - this is a lot of fun. They have made it free because it looks like Savage 2 will be out in the near future.
