Before you even sign up for a Twitch account, it's a good idea to round up some equipment.
This story initially gave an incorrect figure for the SDRAM modules in the Ouya device. The console has a pair of 4-gigabit SDRAM modules.
A Federal Trade Commission judge dismisses the agency's suit that alleged the chip designer engaged in antitrust practices regarding SDRAM, the most common memory found in the market.

The company begins sampling new 400MHz double data rate SDRAM to Silicon Integrated Systems, which will test the memory with a new chipset for Intel's Pentium 4.
VIA Technologies launched a new version of its VIA C3 processor for portable computers, Thursday, at the CeBit tradeshow in Hannover, Germany. The new chip will run at clock speeds of up to 933 MHz. VIA expects the chip to be used in devices ranging from notebooks PCs to Web tablets. The company also used the CeBit pulpit to announce its new Apollo P4X333 chipset for Intel's Pentium 4 chip. The new chipset, a group of enabling chips for the desktop PC processor, adds support for 333MHz double data rate SDRAM and a faster 533MHz bus, the pipeline between processor and memory. The chipset is shipping now to VIA customers. VIA did not, however, announce pricing or its intended ship date for the new C3.
The memory-chip designer is updating its technology at a critical time, as rivals have been helping to popularize the competing Double Data Rate SDRAM.
Gateway on Tuesday introduced the 910 Series, entry-level servers starting at $699. The new servers, based on Intel's Celeron processor, are intended for small businesses aiming to improve e-mail handling, Internet access, printer sharing and other networking tasks. "Many small businesses are looking to move to a network architecture for the first time, and they need both comprehensive services and reliable hardware to make it happen," said Jim Jones, vice president of segment marketing for Gateway. The base model 910 includes a 1GHz Celeron processor, 128MB of SDRAM and a 20GB hard drive. The $1,499 910L2 has the same processor but 256MB of memory, a 40GB hard drive and Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server operating system with five licenses.
Intel is set to ship its 845 chipset, which means Pentium 4 systems will be able to use SDRAM rather than the costlier Rambus memory.
