    "The Red Power 2 mod for Minecraft has recently been updated, and it adds a fully emulated 6502 processor that can be programmed in assembly, but comes with a Forth interpreter. From the article: Fair disclosure: The video linked in the article is mine" Since I've used this mod somewhat...

    Lightning shooting guy isn't too bad with ranged attacks, hes pretty easy to kill if you have soul arrow. Melee, just learn his pattern and keep up with him.

    Final Fantasy IX

    I'd say its a tossup between 4 and 6 (2 and 3 US), with a slight nod to 6 (3). Such a great game. I'd LOVE to see them re-do the entire storyline start to finish with today's graphics. But of course, they'd wind up changing something and we'd all hate it. So I guess its for the best :D

    I started up as a pyro -- I like how hes kind of a mix between combat and spellcasting. Not sure which of the 2 I'll focus my points on. Combats very satisfying in this series, but I've always, ALWAYS been a sucker for a spellcaster. I also got the master key.

    Do you have 2 monitors? I read online about it not switching to low power mode if 2 monitors are plugged in. I definitely noticed it go down to 40ish when I unplugged a monitor.

    60ish with 2 monitors isn't too bad from what I've read but I'm no expert obviously. But 99 is the cards limit according to the specs. Any higher risks damage IMHO, I'd get uncomfortable at anything over 90.

    Oh. I also have one of those little slot fans that sits next to your video card. I don't think it would make THAT much of a diff though.

    For me, the main menu of Hard Reset was pretty heavy duty -- card got up to 81/82, and sometimes spiked to 83, but the fans kept it around there. Running around in-game, it hovered around 77-79, whenever it spiked above 80, the fans sped up and cooled it back to upper 70's.

    That sounds high to me. From what I read online it shouldn't get that hot. I fired up a couple games, and the max i saw was 82ish, and then the fan started going and cooled it to upper 70s (77-79c). That said, the games i fired up weren't that intense -- just cause 2, was gonna do...
