    Chew is quite a well known overclocker and modder - he is one of the chaps who does does world record LN2 attempts.

    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Re: Wii U teardown done by Nintendo

    The thing is this Wii U vs current generation or Wii U vs next generation?? ATM,we can't say until we can get some specs and the other aspect is the GPU. It probably is far more programmable than what the PS3 or Xbox360 has. Devs complained about the PS3 due to the CPU and the way RAM was allocated,until some realised,Xenon might be more powerful straight up,but Cell could be used for other purposes too.

    Assassin's Creed III is being released for the Wii U and it will be interesting to see how the three versions stack up. The two next gen Sony and MS consoles will beat it,but I think the Wii U will probably be better than the current generation,which has been around for over six years and well optimised for,once they get used to the percularities of the console,or maybe it is that crap!!

    I am still going to stick with my PC for gaming* though.





    *But for how long will we have the privilege??

    It's a console so the question is not.. 'how fast is it?".. it's "what good games are there?"

    Who cares if Marketing Creed or Call of the advertiser is released or not. Providing quality fun games arrive, people will buy. Like they did the wii before it.

    * noting I still beleive the wii was the best of the previos gen as it had so many great games on it.
