    Gaming Monitor 1920X1200 vs 1920X1080

    Here's a really cheap 1080p IPS panel, if that's the way he wants to go.... the LG IPS225V, gets a very good write up here. The main moan is a wobbly stand, but this is apparently a very nice image quality for the money.

    MSI loptops

    They make some good gaming laptops which don't cost top dollar, even the higher end ones. There's a good review of one here where it wins an award, while this has been rebadged as a Mesh machine, it's actually an MSI GX660R. Sounds pretty tasty, in fact "difficult to fault" according to the...

    Mind giving some suggestions on a laptop?

    It's worth taking a look at the Acer Aspire AS5750G which wins a value award in the linked review. For the money, it sounds pretty damn good value and is a light 15 inch model - and it has an HDMI port (but not blu-ray, not at this price level!). The main negative seems to be a somewhat...

    Best 2.1 speakers?

    The reviews I've seen of the Z623 seem to rate the speaker set as a little disappointing for the money (which isn't like Logitech, normally they're pretty good). Another good option for budget speakers is the Edifier M3300SF 2.1 speakers which get a good write up in the linked review. The...

    Who else HATES Gymkhana in Dirt3

    I think it's a nice introduction for some variety, Gymkhana.. still struggle a bit with the donuts round circles, though... maybe that's where I need to use the handbrake properly?! For me the best change in D3 was less buggy races, hurray ;)

    Recommended tablet?

    The Transformer has been getting a lot of good feedback from what I've seen. (There's also the Slider, by Asus, due out soon - Aug I think? - which is pretty much the same bar battery issues and the fact that it has a slide-out, not detachable/dock keyboard, which may be more convenient for...

    best wifi device??

    I'd recommend homeplugs/powerline connection... been using them for two years, and I just have a basic Solwise 85Mbps model. Holds just fine for streaming, online gaming, everything. And the new ones are better, apparently (the new NetGear kit wins an award here). Reviewer notes that...

    Video game recommendations.

    Metro 2033 is a great game, you won't be disappointed. Highly atmospheric. Speaking of which, another fabulously atmospheric (but less well known) game, if you're into horror, is Amnesia: Dark Descent. Great game imho, genuinely scary! (Gets an award in good review here). Oh and also, check...

    best classic rpg's

    Daggerfall is indeed a good 'un. Maybe check out Ahriman's Prophecy too, a nice little effort, as the dev says for those who “enjoy classic RPGs like Final Fantasy 6”. You can grab it here. If you like classic RPG stuff, then there's also Avernum, although that isn't free. The graphics might...

    Looking for a good strategy game (winXP).

    One of my faves is an indie effort, Armageddon Empires. It's turn based, but excellent... check out: http://www.crypticcomet.com But for RTS I agree with the poster who mentioned World in Conflict, an under-rated effort. (There's a good n' concise review here if you want to read up...

    is Call of Jurez any good?

    An under-rated game imho, and worth a punt for that sort of money (check out a review here if you fancy reading up more: http://www.itreviews.co.uk/games/g268.htm )

    Hellgate London Any Good?

    Yeah, HG does feel repetitive, and is quite disappointing in that respect.... There's a review here if you're after further opinionage: http://www.itreviews.co.uk/games/g398.htm

    what's a good registry cleaner?

    I'd recommend Reg Mechanic too. Very slick and easy to use. There's a review here if you want to find out more about it: http://www.itreviews.co.uk/software/s502.htm

    Resident Evil 4

    Yeah, this is a disastrous port... check out this review, just about sums it all up: http://www.itreviews.co.uk/games/g311.htm
