    Yo.... if i can get an ps2 emu to actually work I would LOVE to see if I could render in dx10 and then do a comparison to dx9 and see if there is any noticeable or real difference.

    I used to have a fully working 24inch crt.

    It hurted my eyez :p and It was really heavy. The only problem with it now is its got an unfixable pink tint on the screen due to the wire in the back being slowly torn apart over time.

    Lost planet

    What the hell have i been missing all these years? This game looks too real.
    Runs alright on my 2400HD, but should run better with my 8400gs.

    Really? Wouldn't say its worth 50, more like 25 bucks. Its pretty good tho, nice visuals and fast gameplay.

    Didn't know they made 24 inch crt's. This 17inch is pretty nice tho. Doesn't hurt my eyes, but at 1280x1024 its really cool to look at now.

    Yep

    That game does look pretty sweet. I bought it on steam for like $2-5 or something crazy like that. I need to finish it.

    I think you should upgrade your monitor when you start seeing OLED's out :) Or maybe the really nice 120hz LCD's from samsung when they go down in price. I used to game on 17inches of pure pwnage but the experience is completely different with a huge monitor at night. And then even better with the color,brightness, and sharpness of an LCD.

    You talking about that edge of the photo? if so, thats a driver issue, believe me. I am using windows 2000 , and well using the modded ati drivers, these 9 drivers are really terrible. Switching back to the 8.12 that issue does not show up.

    I do plan to buy a LCD monitor, but i am buying that for when i get my Gateway Intel Quad Core late this year:

    I'm thinking if you could have proper AA on GTA IV it would look so nice at that res.

    I would think sega would make something like that, but capcom gets some kudos for making a game that looks this damn good.

    LOL nope. My P3 prebuilt from gateway, This Dell 210L Celeron 3.06ghz prebuilt , and my secondary computer the one for future future games will be another prebuilt, a gateway core quad, or is Quad core ?

    I rather just buy a prebuilt computer, that way i will be safe to know that they know what they are doing haha.

    This is so true. I can't believe you are on any comp forums and you don't build your own comp. That's like going to a lan.... and not playing any games.

    Why wouldn't he be here because he bought prebuilts. It doesn't make him any less of a member than any of us.

    I didn't say he was less of a member. I am just surprised he is such an active member on a forum like this. Normally a new person will join a forums, see all the good things that come out of building your own computer, and then upgrade if they can afford it.
    I am guessing since he is buying a gateway quad core machine (doesn't mean it's expensive, they can be had on the cheap side now) that he isn't too poor, and with a proper budget he could have himself a better computer that he knows inside and out.

    Building a computer is fairly easy, like ste said
    Just remember little things like thermal paste on the cpu, and try to ground yourself so you don't zap all your parts (it has never happened to me but it apparently does happen and I don't take chances) and stuff like that.
    One of the funniest things you will notice is when you tell people that you built that machine over there and point to it, depending on what they know some will instantly think your a genius :D


    I know this is what the forums is for but I should just tell you; if you want u2konline, make a post asking for someone to help you set up a budget build PC and then help you with the questions you have while building it. If your pressed for money or want to get the most for it maybe you could reuse some parts like your current ram (i just know u have 4gb's of ddr2, nothing else), and hard drives.
