Hey folks, JeffB dropping in for a spell to share a little triple monitor gaming with ya!  This is a bit of a personal triumph getting this set up to work with Vista and NVIDIA's current drivers.  Two 20" monitors are driven by a GeForce 8800GTX and the third by a GeForce 7600GT.  It's hard to get these two cards to play nice on the same system and the 7600GT is holding me back from DX10, but still, it looks pretty sweet.  Average FPS is around 12 and the flight is generally fluid unless I pull a fast bank.  There's room for improvement, like another 8800GTX and this puppy, but overall, it's surprisingly playable.  The only major drawback with...

Wow. Gangbangers sure are getting nerdy these days. Symantec is warning about what they call "drive-by" web attacks using javascript. Computerworld has the rundown. That's what researchers at Symantec Corp. and Indiana University are saying, after publishing the results of tests that show how attackers could take over your home router using malicious JavaScript code. For the attack to work, the bad guys would need a couple of things to go their way. First, the victim would have to visit a malicious Web site that served up the JavaScript. Second, the victim's router would have to still use the default password that it's pre-configured... Read more...

NVIDIA is proving the saying "Two's Company, Three's a crowd" no longer applies. It is rumored that NVIDIA may have a new three-way SLI setup targeted at mainstream PC enthusiasts. The new take on SLI is supposed to make it's début at CeBIT 2007 where NVIDIA hopes it will steal the focus of the show. Who needs two-way SLI when you've got three-way SLI, right? Reportedly, NVIDIA is readying a new three-way SLI approach that will actually hit "the mainstream," which differs somewhat from the SLI x 4 renditions that currently reside primarily in pre-fab boxes and luxury boutiques. While we've... Read more...
Avis is teaming up with Autonet Mobile to offer a WiFi hotspot that serves the rental car, and about a hundred foot radius around it. Autonet Mobile's In-Car Router is about the size of a laptop and draws power from the car's cigarette lighter outlet. The hardware itself is a bridge for a cellular provider's 3G network (Avis will likely have contracts with 3G providers around the country), acting as a WiFi gateway for those connected to it. Other 3G-WiFi bridges are already available from the likes of Linksys and Kyocera, but this appears to be the first targeted exclusively at vehicles. Business travelers will have one fewer excuse to offer about why they didn't see the e-mail.... Read more...

Hey folks, we've got plenty of news this weekend! For all of you that loved, and still love, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System(talking about the SNES here), XYZ computing has put up an article praising the glory of this great machine. For those of you who missed out on those days, it breaks my heart... really, hours of my childhood devoted to that box. I've spent more time with Final Fantasy 3 than I have with Half-Life 2. Goodnight all! BenQ DW1620 DVDR @ MHW "The BenQ DW1620 arrived in a typical retail box with Styrofoam inserts. In addition to the drive were four mounting screws, two quick start guides, and software. The software contained was Sonic RecordNow, InterVideo, WinCinema,... Read more...
Good morning friends :)  Awaking to a cold and frosty morning, it unfortunately looks as if winter is fast approaching.  I know us Canadians are supposed to enjoy the cold and snow.  But, all I can say is that I am glad I installed a remote car starter a few weeks back; nothing like pre-heated seats in the early AM ;)  Tsunami Ultra Quiet Custom Case @ PimpRig "The mnpctech Tsunami that Bill sent had some killer airbrush work on it that is called "Silent and Deadly". I get it completely; a Tsunami is a giant wave (as in the style of case), this is the Ultra Quiet so it's silent, and the Killer Whale is a deadly predator in the water. The artwork is drop-dead...

Spire Cooler SkiveStream 3 @ HardwareHounds.com "As processors get faster, they produce more heat. This means that it doesn't take long before the stock cooler that came with your cpu just doesn't do the job as well as you might like. One of the first upgrades to a stock system is the swapping of the stock cpu cooler to a cooler that will move more air, thus keeping the cpu cooler. Quite often, in the world of coolers, size matters. Coolers... Read more...
Good afternoon friends, welcome to Hot Hardware :)  Yesterday was my girlies birthday, so of course she was spoiled to no end.  Between the massive amounts of food and the bottles of wine, I slept like a baby last night.  All the same, my head is still not full on this morning but I think I am still able to dish out some news ;)  Here is yours mid-day shot of juice...

Good morning friends, how are you?   After pounding out some benchmarks last night I decided some downtime was in order, so I fired up my new game, Hitman: Contracts.  If you haven't played this series, think of a cross between Splinter Cell and Max Payne.  In the game you play an assassin that gets hired by various employers to "hit" specific targets.  At the end of each mission you are paid according to how stealthy you were and how much... eerr... clean up is required.  Though this game is definitely not for the kiddies, if you feel the urge to assassinate someone with a pool cue, this is the one for you. ;) Mouse Grips @ Viper Lair "Adding "grip"...

  By Jeff Bouton October 26, 2003           So, you've read the reviews and now you're considering upgrading to an Athlon 64.  From what we've seen, that's not a bad choice.  As Marco showed in his introduction to the Athlon 64, AMD's much anticipated processor has shown a lot of promise.  There have been some delays in bringing the new chip to market, but in the end it looks like AMD got it right.  But where do you begin? Soon after AMD released the Athlon 64 to the public, eager motherboard manufacturers unveiled their latest motherboards for AMD's new baby.  Some are offering basic packages that boast features and performance,...
