    what is your monitor's native res? cause perhaps it doesnt know which mode to start up in although i always thought it picked the crappiest mode and then you could change it.

    1920x1200, but yeah it should have gone lowest possible, either way thats over 1080p so couldn't have gone beyond it.

    Found hte issue, my monitor is not HDCP compliant :/ So I don't think there is a work around. Anyone know if I can run composite out of the PS3 to a composite to VGA adapter, then still run the PS3 in HD?

    I read up on it a bit, will do 720p/1080i just fine, and most games are only in 720P, plus thats what I played on before, so should work great. I also read that composite can actually push 1080p, but most TV's can't handle that through composite, but I'm going to be running it through VGA, so I might actually still be able to get 1080p. Either way I'm not too worried now, I ordered the adapter off Amazon, so go ahead and toss me on the list now that I finally got my slim.

    Yes he can do it well with the slim version and in 1080P too. Although you need the Component AV Cable that has HDMI - 5 RCA\Phono connections on it. And only other one that does HD is HDMI to HDMI all the others are 480i.

    And copyright- protected Blu Ray video disks can only output 1080p using a HDMI cable that is compatible with the HDCP standard

    when I hook up my ps3 via hdmi to dvi to my monitor it takes a while to register, just wait a while if STILL nothing then reset the console(hold down the off button untill it beeps twice)not sure if it can do this anymore but I have done this multiple times and it never beeps twice for me anymore but it use to and it always seemed to work

    Yeah thats not it, I was running my old 80GB PS3 off DVI on my old 22", this just isn't gonna work. But I'm cooking up a plan to ru nit through VGA, just trying to figure the right things to pick up so it works.

    I loved MS 1, you cant go wrong picking it up used for cheap, I really didn't notice a big diff between the 2 games myself.

    MGS4 is some good fun online, lots of modes and some expansions (you have to buy them concider it map packs with extras).

    one of my favorite modes is.

    Someone is Solid Snake, and you have to find them, they have full octo camo so there basically invisible, there objective is to knock out 3 soldiers and take the dog tags,
    you have to do all this while fighting the opposing team :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    Pick up Battlefield Bad Company then. I personally stopped playing COD4 the instant I bought that game. Plus when you knife someone you get their dogtags (player name on them) in your record books forever. I have all my friends dogtags, none of them have mine, feels good.

    Guys, is the PS3 slim dual-voltage ? Since I am taking a US PS3 back home where the voltage is 240v, so I need a voltage converter, or just a different power cord ? The opinion on the web seems to be divided.

    I completed Resisitance earlier and have just started Resisitance 2....what a game, totally overshadows the original :)

    Im really glad I decided to get another PS3 because Im enjoying playing the PS3 exclusives :) I loved Killzone 2, its not as amazing as some people made out, but awesome GFX and decent enough gameplay (TBH, I think the varied gameplay of GOW and Halo makes them better titles compared to KZ2....BTW Ive used those 2 games as a comparison because most compare them to KZ2 because they are exclusives on the 360 ;) )

    Im looking forward to picking up Metal Gear Solid 4 next (so if anyones thinking of parting with a PAL version anytime soon please let me know)

    Thanks PS3 clubhouse for persuading to grab one of these great systems (again) :D
