If you're in the market for a Core i7-based system, our episode starts off with some advice just for you. Geoff talks about a pair of X58 motherboards from Gigabyte and MSI and gives us his pick(s) out of the four he's reviewed so far. Other topics of discussion include the ForceWare "Big Bang II" drivers from Nvidia, our first impressions of Left 4 Dead and Mirror's Edge, a sneak preview of our 45nm Shanghai Opteron review (with a special guest), and the scoop on AMD's upcoming Phenom II processors.
This episode also continues our series of editor biographies. This time, Cyril joins us on Skype to talk about his early tech influences, writing tech articles at the age of 14, playing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata on the piano, and more.
