Comment: A good guide..... (Score 1) 555

Tom's Hardware post a regular guide to the best CPU & GPU at various price points....

Decide how much you want to spend on each component and see what is recommended.

CPU - http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/best-gaming-cpu,review-31815.html
GPU - http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/best-graphics-card,review-31829.html

Realistically any CPU/GPU combination from the last year or two shouldn't have a problem meeting your requirements, as most GPUs now decode 1080 video in hardware, and Oblivion shouldn't prove too taxing unless you are trying to run in very high resolutions.
It will just depend what your budget is and how future proof you want it to be.

RogueyWon writes "The Times is reporting that Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 5, likely to prove a key title for the PlayStation 3, has been delayed indefinitely, despite an expectation that it would be released relatively early in 2010. The delay seems likely to impact Sony's plans to bundle the game with the PlayStation 3 console in time for the important spring sales period in Japan."

Whatever Happened To Second Life? 209

Barence writes "It's desolate, dirty, and sex is outcast to a separate island. In this article, PC Pro's Barry Collins returns to Second Life to find out what went wrong, and why it's raking in more cash than ever before. It's a follow-up to a feature written three years ago, in which Collins spent a week living inside Second Life to see what the huge fuss at the time was all about. The difference three years can make is eye-opening."

An anonymous reader writes "Nintendo is investigating potential copyright infringement by Nokia during some video demos of their N900 phone, which can be seen emulating Nintendo games. Nintendo spokesman Robert Saunders says: 'We take rigorous steps to protect our IP and our legal team will examine this to determine if any infringement has taken place.' In the video, Nokia says, 'Most publishers allow individual title usage, provided that the user is in possession of the original title.'"

+ - Science proves zombies could annihilate humans-> 1

cb95amc (99589) writes "If zombies actually existed, an attack by them would lead to the collapse of civilisation unless dealt with quickly and aggressively. That is the conclusion of a mathematical exercise carried out by researchers in Canada. They say only frequent counter-attacks with increasing force would eradicate the fictional creatures. The scientific paper is published in a book — Infectious Diseases Modelling Research Progress. In books, films, video games and folklore, zombies are undead creatures, able to turn the living into other zombies with a bite. But there is a serious side to the work. In some respects, a zombie "plague" resembles a lethal rapidly-spreading infection."
