 NVIDIA Forceware v70.41 Drivers Leaked:

"A brand new NVIDIA Forceware 70.41 beta is now available for download online. This one comes from a test at OSNN and features new improvements and other enhanced things. "We unveiled the driver five days ago and after some initial testing determined that they contained so much debug code and were testing a few new features that they weren't going to be better than the current 66.81 release." This is being released to tide you over until a release that may or may not currently be under WHQL testing. It works on Win2000 and XP and as always be carefull with Beta drivers!"

 Crucial Ballistix PC3200 DDR Memory Review @ Tweak3D:

"Be it your neighbor, friend, or just someone talking about their computer to others one of the most common questions over the years has been "How much RAM does your machine contain? Of course advanced users would add to this by being interested not solely in size but also type as a method to determine which is faster, yours or mine."

OK, that's all I've got for now.  See ya soon!
