Motorsport fans might want to bookmark the 2009 Motorsport Calendar I created recently in our Wiki.

-weet*di- sends word of a killer OCAU Iron Musician contest this month. 8 entries and only a couple of days left for voting, so get to it!

Tweaktown check out some speedy video setups. But today we bust open the piggy bank, max out the credit cards and hit the daily limit on the savings account; we take the time to examine the fastest graphics card setups available to us today.

Tech Report talk to Bigfoot Networks. What's happened to Bigfoot Networks since it introduced its first two Killer NIC gaming network cards? Has the company faded into obscurity?

Lemming spotted an interesting modular server from Intel reviewed on TomsHardware. The MFSYS25 is a flexible chassis-based system that has room for six server-like compute modules. It offers networking with an Ethernet switch module and includes a built-in SAN (storage area network) that holds 14 2.5 SAS drives and can be shared between server modules. Kinda like a Blade setup, I guess.

Anandtech checked out DirectX 11, thanks Sniper. As it hit the streets with Vista in January of 2007, DirectX 10 has just turned 2 and we are already anticipating it's replacement in the very near future. As we will learn, this speedy transition should be very good for DirectX 11 adoption as DirectX 10 hasn't even become pervasive yet: many games are still DirectX 9 only.
