Maximizing Games with YouGamers

The Geeks welcome Nick Evanson, Editor-in-Chief of [YouGamers|http://www.yougamers.com/], a professional online publication backed by [Futuremark|http://www.futuremark.com/] and a team of editors that tackle PC games in a distinctive and interesting way by examining how the look, feel and performance of a game scales across wide ranges of PC hardware setups. In fact, they’ve built a tool called Game-O-Meter that determines exactly how well your hardware will actually play a game!
