IGN have interviewed the guys behind Good Game. Many have tried, few have succeeded. In the hazard-filled world of videogaming TV shows in Australia (and around the world), no single TV show has managed to crack a large enough fanbase to justify ongoing network support from a TV station. Until now. Good Game, once a small-time venture from journalist and producer Janet Carr, has just kicked off its third series with a gutsy review of Halo 3, led by Jeremy 'Junglist' Ray and Steven 'Baja' O'Donnell.

Driver Sweeper 1.0 has been released. Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove driver leftovers from your system. It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system. The current supported drivers are NVIDIA (Display and Chipset), ATI (Display), Creative (Sound) Realtek (Sound), Ageia (PhysX) and Microsoft (Mouse).

LegionHardware have posted a guide to overclocking the Nvidia GeForce 8000 series. Today we are going to provide you with a basic step-by-step guide on how to overclock the shader clock of a GeForce 8000 series graphics card. The GeForce 8600 GT and 8800 GTS have been selected to be the test subjects. In the past we have found that simple GPU and memory tweaks can help these graphics cards produce around 20% more performance. So can overclocking the shader clock independently help improve performance even more?

LegitReviews have interviewed John Beekley from Corsair. It has been a over a year since we sat down and did an interview John Beekley from Corsair Memory, but all that changes today. We talk about Corsair's ever popular power supply series and dive into some DDR3 memory questions. John Beekley even breaks the news on a new product line called the NANOMATOR right here on Legit Reviews! Be sure to check it out!

Phoronix have posted some Linux DDR3 benchmarks. We have several DDR3 related articles in the works, but in this article we will be looking just at the DDR3 system memory performance in the RAMspeed synthetic benchmark under Linux. The DDR3 memory we'll be using is the OCZ DDR3-1333 2GB Gold Kit with a part number of OCZ3G13332GK.

Nvidia have launched some of their new integrated graphics chipsets. It is about time NVIDIA started shipping integrated graphics solutions for the Intel LGA775 platform. After a noticeable absence in the Intel market, NVIDIA has finally release three new motherboard GPUs and two new nForce chipsets for the Intel platform. Today, we take a look at the new NVIDIA GeForce 7150, 7100 and 7050 GPUs, as well as the new NVIDIA nForce 630i and nForce 610i chipsets. NVIDIA promises that these new chipsets and GPUs will offer far better performance than Intel's new G33 and G35 chipsets at lower costs.
