Hi All,

I have this monitor & am very satified with it. I have experienced absoloutely no GHOSTING with this monitor playing Battlefield 2, Call Of Duty 2, Doom3, & Silent Hunter3. This Monitor is fantastic.

Hi All,

I agree that if you deal with any retailer long enough,sooner or later there will be a problem. However, it's the retailers willingness to satisfy the customer that determines whether that company is above board or not

Hi All,

Today, I recieved my order from New Egg for my OCZ Powerstream 520 SLI Power Supply, however, once I opened the box I saw that it is in fact a OCZ Powersteam +600 SLI Power Supply. How about that?

Hi All,

O1die, I like your solution, dual partitions. I'm going to go with that. Thank you for the solution. I changed Motherboards, went with DFI's new Expert board.

Hi Everybody,

You are right to point out how fast things change in this industry Capper.

A book/guide would really be a good thing, as there are a lot of folk who don't realize with the right guideance, building your own PC isn't difficult at all.

Hi Everybody, I agree with you Zelig, I read an article by Maximum PC a while back concerning building a future proof PC. Their choice of platform was IMHO completely wrong as they went with the first generation of Prescott processors. As we all know that if you wanted to upgrade to Dual core you ha...

Operating System For New Build

Hi All,


I'm getting ready to build a new machine, around AMD'S X2 4400 processor & DFI's Lanparty UT nF4 SLI D mobo & either nVidia's 7800 GTX or GT video card. My question is should I go with XP Pro 32 bit or 64 bit.

Thank You in advance for all replies.

Hi All, I'm mostly play Simulations like the Silent Hunter series or IL2. I however liked Call of Duty, & thought that Brothers In Arms would be good. Man was I dissappointed.

Hi All,

That's an interesting take that you have Kerii. I've seen the Viewsonic monitors @4ms as well as a newer one @3ms, both being grey to grey.

I'm somewhat sceptical about these fantastic numbers though, not to mention the Manufacturers polocies on dead pixels.
