    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
