- Call of Duty Single Player Demo

FileShack has the Call of Duty demo up today for download. If you're a gamer, I would suggest you check this game out, it's awesome!

Call of Duty delivers the gritty realism and cinematic intensity of World War II's epic battlefield moments like never before - through the eyes of citizen soldiers and unsung heroes from an alliance of countries who together helped shape the course of modern history.

Play through the chaos of battle as part of a well-trained squad, that lays down covering fire and pulls its wounded to safety. In addition to authentic squad movements and tactics, each soldier's distinct personality and training comes out on the battlefield.


Hexus checks out DFI's LANPARTY NFII ULTRA MOTHERBOARD. This mobo sports the NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400 chipset and a sweet looking PCB.

Avid readers will no doubt know that NVIDIA, in its infinite wisdom, decided to differentiate its nForce2 logic into single and dual-channel chipsets; both of which are now ratified to run 200FSB XP CPUs. The dominating factor in this segregation has to be cost. It's abundantly clear that that producing a dual-channel-capable memory controller is inherently more expensive than the single-channel approach. We've demonstrated that the present dual-channel Ultra 400 usually ekes out no more than a 5% performance advantage over running the same chipset in single-channel mode. It's with this information that NVIDIA, most likely, has decided to produce a cheaper, slightly lower performance variant.
