Good afternoon ladies and gents. Hell bent developer, ID Software, has posted up some info on the 10th annual QuakeCon. Mr. Hollenshead claims "This one, our 10th now, I feel confident in saying, will be the best one yet.". Of course, I'm not going because I'm just to good a gamer, I'll be nice and let someone else split the $150,000 :)
"The Intel 955X Northbridge supports Intel Pentium Extreme Edition and Pentium D dual core processors as well as any other LGA775 Intel Pentium 4 or Celeron processor.

"Today we're reviewing the Z-5500 5.1 Channel Speakers from Logitech. A direct replacement to the popular Z-680, this set features a number of improvements and enhancements from the old version. Find out how the Z-5500 performs in a variety of scenarios, such as gaming, music, and in movies. We'll also look to see whether they stand up to different configurations other than as PC desktop speakers."
"Another edition to the AN8-SLI is the uGuru panel which is a front panel that slides into your 5 ¼" bay and offers an interesting mix of options that includes two USB ports, a Firewire port and audio input/output jacks. Abit also puts the clearing CMOS jumper which can be accessed by lifting a cover and pressing the button- kinda like how you see missiles launched in movies- uber cool!"
"This is the second MCE 2005 box that I've created over the last half year and the platform is absolutely stellar. There are other viable options out there and you should check them out to see which one fits your needs. However, for my home, I have to admit that MCE 2005 is the way to go (at least for now!)."
