    even so, if it works with a short cable the problem would have to be in the cable, a higher rated cable would therefore work better would it not?

    I like that external DVD-RW freedom, when you've finished with it, if you don't think you'll ever use it again, chuck me a PM :) it would go perfect with my big rig.

    Finally had a chance to test games like MW1 and CoD:w@w on my DM1. and the results are a little suprising.

    I can handle MW1 at full res (1366x768) but id have to run it with all the eyecandy off. Im amazed at how great the game still looks with all the extra options turned off. the fps does take quite a big hit when it comes to lots of smoke or dust but asside from that. i can probably play it online perfectly.

    CoD:w@w was a little more harder to run. I tried it at 1366x768 dropped it to 1024x768 then again to 800x600. it was playable. but the game was suffering from microstutter. so the game would probably run fine on 640x480.

    I even played some CoD: United offensive just for laughs. but the problem with that is the game doesnt support wide screen so i had to play it at 1024x768. not surprisingly. the game ran perfectly.

    going to give streetfighter 4 a go. and maybe something else like HAWX and Blur.

    how are you doing with the latest contest?

    funnily enough although i've got working PC's dating from 2003 turned on at this very moment in this house, it's actually my main rig that's got the lowest score out of all of them


    you can look up my score now if you want on the futuremark website by using the search function if you can work out the right setting, but lets just say i've reduced my computers speed by at least a 1/4 since then

    Anybody looking to shift an HD 5770 or HD 5750 then you have a potential buyer in myself. I'm looking to have a little crossfire action so PM if you have the goods :)

    @cheesy999 I can't be bothered trying to get the lowest score so I just entered as is...51,409...I'd love to see what scores all of the uber rigs get LOL

    Argh -- decisions decsions and lazyness...

    Lazyness that spawns decisions and decisions that cost money.

    My backup rig has been sitting parted out on the floor for a year now. I really need to rebuild it but i really cant be arsed. = LAZYNESS

    Now heres where its forcing me to make a decision.... I was planning to buy an SSD or an £80 pair of shoes. but after reading up on watercooling, I now want a new case that i wont struggle to fit parts in like my Antec. even though my case supports watercooling and has holes where i can route piping through. its not a watercooling friendly case.

    And i want to ditch it for something newer - with better ventillation and support for watercooling. If i get the new case. I will rebuild my backup rig into this shitty antec so that solves the lazyness problem, however I wont have an SSD or a pair of shoes.

    gotta love 3way battles. At the moment. the Shoes and PC case take priority as i already have an SSD. but i want to upgrade to a Sata III SSD

    The mere fact that you have described it as "midi" suggests it cannot compete with the HAF in the airflow or "space" departments that the freedom one requires :D
