Re: Which console?

I have an Xbox 360. I picked it up in 2005, so far I have had no problems with it. I chose the 360 because of games like Halo, Gears Of War and Mass Effect that only come out on Xbox. Most of the games out there are coming out on both consoles(PS3 and 360). The PS3 doesn't have any games that are P...

Re: Which console?

So I made a fairly recent purchase of a 360. I picked it for several reasons. 1) Most of the old Xbox games I have are playable on the 360 2) WiFi wasn't important to me as my house has ethernet run through the walls (almost every wall in house has an RJ45 jack) 3) Liked the feel of the controllers...

Re: Who Makes the best Radeon 3870?

Actualy, it looks like everyone is buying these cards from Sapphire and Diamond. Both companies got very high reviews. Decisions decisions! Maybe I'll try Daimond.

Re: Who Makes the best Radeon 3870?

I'm gonna have to go with GECUBE, on paper, it looks like they have the best card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814241067 , however, i haven't seen any actual tests on these cards specifically. The different companies just will have slightly different speeds, if not the sam...

Who Makes the best Radeon 3870?

Powercolor, Gigabyte, Gecube, MSI, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond or Asus? I see different companies all making what seems to be the same card. Some even at different prices. Mostly $249. Asus makes one for $279. Does it make a difference which company I go with? People seem pretty happy with Diamond....

Xbox 360 controller for Win XPSp1 and Vista?

Idon't know much(I don't anything) about operating systems. I wanted to buy the Xbox 360 controller for the pc but it says you need Windows XP Sp1 or Windows Vista. I have Windows XP, I'm assuming Win XP SP1 is different. Therefore, I can't use this controller right? I saw in Best Buy they have Win ...

Re: Which console?

Now that I think about it. I think I got mine about 4 or 5 months after launch. It must have been in 2006 when I picked it up. I must have been in one of the first good batches. Plus, it sits alone on a short wire stand that is supposed to be used for plants so it gets plenty of air. Or I'm just lu...

Re: I Need Help Selecting aA New ATI Graphics Card

Thanks, I installed UTIII and it runs fine but the graphics look kinda blury. It's like when you try and watch standard tv on an HD tv. It looks crappy.

Re: I Need Help Selecting aA New ATI Graphics Card

Heres another newbie question, the monitor I have is about 7 to 8 years old. If I buy the 3870, do I have to have a new LCD HD monitor or is the old one I'm using ok?

Re: I Need Help Selecting aA New ATI Graphics Card

you would probably want either a 2900 for DX10, 3870 for DX 10.1, the 1950 is just too outdated really, but if you want to save $$$ and dont care about DX10, its a good enough buy 3870 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814241067 2900 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp...

Thanks, but which one should I go with? 1950 pro, 2600, 2900, etc.. Which one is best for games?

I Need Help Selecting aA New ATI Graphics Card

I'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to the pc. Right now I have a custom pc from Xtreme Gear. I'm running dual Ati Radeon 1600s( the cheap ones). I have Windows XP Home, Athlon 4000, 1000MB Ram, and it all looks pretty when I turn it on. I use my pc for gaming and internet. My monitor is about ...
