The podcast returns for a third series, powered up by the addition of the bit-tech team and some new microphones from Shure. CPC Editor Alex, Reviews Editor Clive and bit-tech main man Tim take a look at the big stories in tech from the last month, including new graphics cards from ATI and Nvidia, and the Phenom II X4 955 BE which sees AMD returning to form. Tim talks about getting his new laptop, the Thinkpad, X301 and the panel then look ahead, taking in Windows 7 and DirectX 11. The games chart returns, but it looks depressingly familiar. Fortunately one of the team is still playing Mass Effect.

It’s Friday and Episode 21 of the Custom PC podcast is here. The team discuss Nvidia’s new 216 stream processor GTX 260, and why it doesn’t have a new name, along with idiotic PC game piracy comments from Epic. The games chart is full of new arrivals, so we get to grips with Crysis Warhead, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, Spore and Warhammer Online. James also offers some useful tips on aeroplane design.

In this episode the panel discusses the new Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT, the tiny, super portable Asus eeePC and the deluge of new PC game demos that has resulted in a games chart that is only 10 per cent Sims. All this and Clive comes up with a new slogan for Intel.
