Re: Video Card Question

The one im looking at is 300, but I dont want to buy it if there isnt much of a difference.

Unless its a noticable difference, I guess my money would be better spent on other items.

So looking at my options, and looking at the 8800's. What sort of increase could I expect going from my BFG 7900gs to say the XFX 8800GTS 320 meg card?

Video Card Question

I have had my 7900GS (BFG) for a bit now, and was wanting to SLI that card, when I went to newegg this morning I found they are out out stock and it looks like on the BFG page I am going to have no luck either. So my question is actually 2 parts. 1. Can I mix manufactures in an SLI configuration as ...

Halo 2 PC release

Anyone else a bit bummed about this?

I don't want to upgrade to Vista just yet, but you need it to play Halo 2.

Guess I won't be playing Halo 2 for quite some time...

I'm just going to throw this out there, but if you didn't have the right to carry, would the gunman still have had a gun?

I have been playing LOTRO since stage 1 beta, and for the most part I have enjoyed it. The main thing thats drawing me to it however is the ability for founding members (pre order) to purchase a lifetime membership for 200 bucks. I don't see me playing it a bunch, but it would be nice to have someth...

Thats the one saving grace I saw in that pic was hardwood floors, though it looks like the couch got it too, one would hope it was a latex based paint, as long as its not dry should easily come out.

I know what your saying about a CRT, but my old 19" CRT is huge and will kill a small child if dropped. At what point in the refresh rates (I assume lower is better) is there a diminishing return? I have read reviews where a 12ms was great but I see 4 and 2ms refresh rates out there too. I don't nee...

LCD Monitor

Hey guys, I havn't really been following monitors and was wondering if anyone here had a suggestion for me.

I want a LCD monitor for gaming, I would prefer being able to sit at the 1600 x 1200 resolution range but its not a necessity.

What monitors out there are good for gaming?
