    Please recommend me a cheap low power PCIe card

    A 7300 may net you a little lower power consumption because it's 90nm based rather than 110nm. This might be offset by the extra 64mb of ram and slightly higher clock speed though. In either case, if power consumption is important I'd underclock and undervolt the card I got (guide for bios...

    Games that use DX10?, still can play with dx9c?

    You sure about that? Gamepro reports that it just requires Vista and the DX10 rumors were just that, rumors. They may be mistaked though.

    What DPI setting do you have your G7 set to?

    I have an MX518 but the concept is the same. I run at 1600dpi and set all my games to match the speed to one that I feel comfortable with at that dpi. I change dpi all the time in game though. Sometimes just to mix it up and sometimes because I'm trying to do something that requires precision...

    Black & White 2 - 6fps

    Getting another stick of ram isn't going to help you. First thing I would do is reinstall the game. If that doesn't fix it try reinstalling all drivers. From there all you can do is a fresh XP instal. How's your performance in other games? I assumed it was normal.

    It's been played at every LAN I've been to since it's release (~10 LANs) by more than 20 people so I would so it is played, at least locally.

    GTR2 Barcelona GP circuit TimeTrials

    1:35 in Lambo with my good old keyboard. I can't seem to repeat that lap at all though and usually get somewhere in the 1:42 range.

    POLL: Higher Resolution? Or Higher GFX Settings with Lower Rez?

    It really depends on the game. Some games look fairly decent at low settings so turning them down doesn't bother me much. Other look like complete ass at lowest settings. It also depends on your monitor. If you have a CRT you may not want to have to recallabrate it depending on res and refresh...

    I'm only 16 and I didn't begin gamming until around 1998 but I do enjoy the old school stuff.

    You guys have to play this game!

    I have no idea what the people in this thread are talking about. Just reading it has made me feel sorry for what the gaming community has become. That was a excellent game and thanks for posting it. Edit: My comments were not directed at the last the last post by FreiDOg.
