    I'll gladly have your 6950* if you're replacing it.

    :D

    A colleague just bought a MSI 560 Ti and his is fantastic, I'm very jealous of the cooler.

    I tried a few trials, connection was fine and I'm on wireless.....Graphics were shocking though, made me proud to be a PC gamer who plays at max settings.

    Yeh, that's a point... I hope this sort of thing doesn't kill off PC gaming or, if it does, that they can offer a high def, full settings version. Blurry textures kill me!!!

    at least not until the next generation consoles come out at least. then they will be like "WOW!!! this looks facking amazing!!!!1!" but we would have already moved on with AMD 8 or 9 series with graphic cards

    Portugal is a nice place. I went there too - we stayed at the Dom Pedro hotel. and the staff broke into my room with a cake and some champaign on the morning of my birthday.

    that was quite a nice suprise.

    I heard also that the onlive service is laggy and bad graphics. Then again, I'm sure the technology will get better so it's good for them they are first to market. They will do well in the end.

    In other news, my logitech x-540s are bloody broken. Only play at very low volume now, made a big popping sound and makes the same sound when turning on, but low volume. I have emailed logitech but I'm not in during the days to deal with RMA collection or delivery so might just have to write them off.

    Only got them in January too. Oh well. Should I hook up my stereo valve amp + speakers ? :) Not much room on this desk though.. hmm.

    Well that was annoying. Found a phone number for Logitech UK tech support/ customer service. Local call so I thought I'd give it a shot.

    Was on hold for 15 minutes, then it changes to a ring tone. Fine, i'm through.

    The f***ing cut me off the bastards. WTF? I thought Logitech were meant to be good.
    I'm gonna call em back and I'm not going to be polite.


    edit: 10 more mins on the phone and we should be able to arrange an RMA etc. Guy was pretty good so I am confident of a good outcome now. We shall see!

    Let me put it this way....People are slow to take it up for a reason.

    Had it been a solid gaming unit like any console or mid/high range pc then people would be snapping it up.

    Turn based stratagy or MMO games might work out fine due to latency issues. but if you have a 37-42" HD 1080p tv AND a PS3 or 360 next to it then I dont really see Onlive's appeal as those consoles will provide better gameplay and graphics with almost little to no latency issues

    so what if you can buy a game title for £1? you'd still need an internet connection to play it. so in a sense its like a form of DRM.
