    Sleep is Obsolete When You Have SSD!

    What's the benefit of using hibernate over power off? I tend to shut all my devices down now that they all use SSDs.

    New Mobo/CPU/RAM Upgrade Time!

    I went for the Ti in the end - I got the Asus one but from Amazon, for £167. Seems like a pretty good deal. I can't wait to try this bad boy out when it arrives! I might finally get to play Witcher 2 :)

    New Mobo/CPU/RAM Upgrade Time!

    Cheers for the info Lee. Turns out you're right, the GPU is a big bottleneck so I'm going to upgrade that too. I just don't know which to get, the GTX 560 or the GTX 560 Ti - I just can't decide! On ebuyer, the 560 is about £140 and the 560 Ti is £170. Is it worth the extra £30?

    New Mobo/CPU/RAM Upgrade Time!

    Cheers Johnny. Six-core processor would be pretty sweet. I've always aimed for the price/performance sweetspot but one day I'd love to build an absolute MOFO of a computer :)

    New Mobo/CPU/RAM Upgrade Time!

    Hi guys, I must apologise to you and to computers in general. I have been neglecting my PC gaming recently in favour of my PS3, but alas it's that time again when my console is being left way behind PC gaming and so it's time to get back to PC gaming. I also picked up a copy of the Witcher 2...

    News 25 years of Windows

    That's an excellent article, I really enjoyed reading that! Sad to see how negative they were about Vista though - once SP1 had bedded in, Vista was solid as a rock.

    News Nvidia Launches “World’s Fastest” Graphics Chip

    Sorry if that came across rude Johnny, I wasn't saying "of course the latest GPU is going to be the fastest" to you, although upon re-reading my comment is may have looked that way. I actually meant that to be addressed to these foolish marketing campaigns that always promote the latest product...

    Xbox Kinect

    Yeah that's true - it was only one game so maybe others are better but the racing game at Eurogamer was having real trouble with people's movements.

    Xbox Kinect

    I've not had a go myself but I saw it at Eurogamer 2010 and the people using it were laughing at how badly it worked...

    Fixed Image Attachments

    Hi guys, I'm not sure if you're aware of this problem but there seems to be some sort of issue with attaching images to posts. I tried to upload about four different images to a post and each time it told me that it was "not a valid image file". Might be worth looking into. Ray

    News World of Warcraft: Cataclysm - Release Date Confirmed

    Yeah he's right, download will almost certainly be full RRP whereas stores will generally discount. I pre-ordered two copies (one for me and one for wife) a few months ago, costing £16.95 each. I think it'll be a while before the download prices get that low! :D
