We're back this week with another informative and fun edition of the weekly Forums Spotlight! This week in the Forums Spotlight we've highlighted discussions on DDR Ram Prices, Bottlenecks, Web Site Blocking, Max Payne, and much more!
The Forums Spotlight is a highlight of just a few of the new topics posted in the SharkyForums, where over ten-thousand enthusiastic computer users post daily for help or to discuss the latest trends and products.
Each week in the Forums Spotlight, we take several of the most popular, insightful, or even controversial threads and present them to you for easy digestion. Feel free to add your own thoughts (subtract the profanity, please) and help us multiply the reader participation here at Sharky Extreme (and you thought math was tough...). We've added links on each spotlight page so you can easily add your own comments and contribute to the debate! If your repartee strikes us as useful, humorous, or otherwise entertaining, it stands the distinct possibility of being featured next week.
Without further ado...

CPU/Processors & Overclocking: AMD vs. Intel
Choices, choices, and more wars. While everyone has their favorite, one reader wants to know who is winning the war, Intel or AMD? Which one is better? Which one should a user consider purchasing? Do I detect the beginning of a flame war or just another thread where people offer hot opinions?

Despite the fact that multiplayer was taken out, our max payne gamers discuss what a multiplayer game of Max could be like.
