Adding to their Republic of Gamers (ROG) series, leading motherboard manufacturer ASUS has recently announced the release of their main overclocking beast, the Striker Extreme. Based on NVIDIA's nForce 680i SLI chipset, this motherboard offers support for Quad-SLI, Intel's Quad-core processors, and FSB speeds of up to 1333MHZ. Packed with a multitude of features, this board is sure to provide the ultimate overclocking experience.

On the back I/O area, there is a small LCD Poster screen, displaying each process of the boot sequence to make diagnosis of system hangs easier than ever. Also there is an onboard LED light, providing illumination for easy connection of devices in dark environments.

This board also features an integrated system off/on and CMOS reset button, making such tasks that much easier. In the sound department, ASUS has included their new SupremeFX audio card, providing 24bit/192kHz sampling on all 8 channels and DTS Connect.

And that's not all! To complete this already monster package, ASUS has put together a top-notch software bundle consisting of the popular game Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, 3DMark06 Advanced Edition, and a full version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal.

I quite like controllers for racing games (or even a steering wheel!) and fighting games are also good with controllers. fps games are okish

Frankly I could never stand any console controllers, gimme a keyboard and mouse any day (and maybe a joystick for flight sims).[/QUOTE]
You could use a keyboard and mouse with the ps2 (not with all games afaik but mainly fps ones), and you can probably do it with the PS3

it was obvis that they was going to sell out in a matter of mins.

TBH i would not own one until the prices of the consoles come down in price

Really... all sold!

Sony will be sorted by Chirstmas!
I would love one but its the price! And then the Price of games! Jeeze! :(

how bout importing one from japan - if the games will work which i believe they will. works out at about 230 :yumyum: stupid uk taxes :(

Thats a good idea!

But still paying way too much for the games! So you pay £1000 for a high end Pc and the games are about £25 a go.

But PS3 is about £300 with games costing £50 a go. It will slowy add up to a High end Pc!

So really haveing a good old PC is best ++++ you get a keyboard and mouse for FPS. And you can get the ultra comfortable Xbox 360 controller for PC too!

So my fave is the PC!

Except that a console will outlive a high end PC. e.g. I got my PS2 back in 2000, and got a P4 Northy 2.0Ghz with 1GB ram and a GF 2 400MX not that long afterwards, and at the time it was a pretty damn good machine. You try and play GTA San Andreas or Vice City on it and it will kill it, whereas the PS2 will play it fine (well not so well with San Andreas, but fine for VC).

i think ill get a ps3 eventually - tell my parents blue ray is the next big thing :p that is IF we get a hdtv
