Just keep in mind that if you buy the monitor, you have the graphics card to support it at its native resolution, as otherwise you'll be buying a new video card as well.

Good catch.  I'm running a Geforce 6600GT 128MB.  Anyone know off hand if this will handle a wide-screen monitor


Did some research (Yeah, Google) my card has a max resolution of 2048 x 1536 Pixels .   So is that good enough?

Where's the option for a grammar and spelling course? /snarky.

Which would you use most?

Monitor as my WOW addicition has picked up again.  I only listen to the music on my daily commute coming and going from work

I've come into some money and after paying some bills I have enough to either buy a Wide Screen LCD monitor or Ipod Nano.   I've been eyeing both for quite awhile, but I'm torn on which to buy.  I had Nano, but I've since given it away to my younger neice as I been using my pocket pc phone as a mp3 player, but I miss the Nano.

The monitor is strictly eye candy.  My CRT is fine and only a year old, but once you used a LCD Monitor it's hard to go back.  We use them at work and the difference is noticable.   

So, I turn to you all for advice

Monitor or Ipod.  Help, me GT your my only HOPE!

Soulchilde - I must admit I am surprised how many of your favorites are PC games.  I would not have thought that.  Just when you think you know a person...   icon_biggrin

Heh, I thought Tecmo Bowl would have impressed you.   Seems I'm the only person that liked that classic football game
4488  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Favorite All Time Games on: February 15, 2007, 07:42:15 PM
Top Ten in particular order:

FF VII
Tecmo Bowl
World of Warcraft
Dark Age of Camelot
Unreal Tournament
Baldur's Gate 2

I agree with Devil.  Just cancelled my Gamefly subscription about two month ago.  You would think after all this time they would establish distribution warehouses on the east and west coast.  Takes entirely to long to get games

Quote from: Arkon on February 09, 2007, 10:54:53 PM

I am here but only in a limited fashion.  A few reasons...

1.  Primarily, as calvin stated, I became very frustrated with the state of affairs here and right before leaving I snapped, went off about something incredibly stupid and that angered me.  I didn't like that while I am usually quite calm with posting I had become frustrated and so I took a self imposed break.

2.  I have pnemonia

3.  Pnemonia is a great weight loss tool, I highly recommend it...

I have been playing Vanguard but not to the level of addiction.  My big problem right now is I can't really sit for more than an hour or so before usually needing to lay down unless I just recently took meds.

I have no problem with Hetz's PS3 promotion.  Lord knows someone has to promote it around here.  I simply do not agree with his PS3 optomism.  It's nothing personal.  I just don't share his opinion on the PS3.


I don't either smile   Maybe, if it comes down in price, but at this time I can't buy one. It's been priced out of my range

I hope it never comes to that.  Btw, I think people are being unfair to Hetz.  When the 360 hit he was a big fan and when the PS hit he's a big fan.  To be honest I see him a big fan of gaming.


Cut him some slack I say, but what do I know.  I'm the guy usually getting shot in the back from my team-mates...I'm looking at you, Poncho  Tongue

A) Buy it at Costco, just keep refunding it.

B) Wait for 2ndGEN hardware version towards the end of the year.

C) Both A and B

I am opting for C sometime late this year, or next.

I recommend Cingular highly.  I have great service and the few times I dealt with customer service I've come away happy.  When I wanted to upgrade my phone early they gave me the credit without any issues.  I also didn't have to renew my plan.   thumbsup

There, now your 4 picks are in.


 nod Yeah, I'll have to call wuss on this one!  There will be much teeth-gnashing and swearing the Ravens loses this game.  Wouldn't be so if it was any other team in the AFC, but killiing the Irsays is a big thing in town this week

I'm too emotionally involved to call the Balt/Indy game.  Beating the Colts in Baltimore is becoming quite personal , so I will abstain from this game.

It's been a while, but McNair might have enough knack to pull it off.


Agreed, McNair does bring a nice mix into it.  As long as he is in then the Ravens have a chance.  Ask Arkon how good McNair can be  Tongue icon_twisted



McNair is good, but the Steelers were just plain baaaaaaaaaad in both games.  I mean come on... Oakland beat the Steelers.... of course the Ravens beat us as well.


Cowher should have never stuck with Big Ben after the pasting the Ravens put on him after the first game.  Batch shoul dhave been in from that game on.  Big Ben has been off all season
