    Viewsonic ELITE XG320U Doesn't come out until Q1 unfortunately, but it looks like we're starting to head in the right direction with monitors.

    Assassin's Creed 2 Only using 1st core?

    So I bought Assassin's Creed 2 for forty bucks because I absolutely LOVED the first one. But it seems that this one has been done with little care. I upgraded from an 8800 GT to a GTX 280 about a year ago, and it seems that I'm not really benefiting from it too much. The old game ran very well...

    Diable ancillary monitors in Windows 7?

    So I have my main monitor and my television hooked up to my GTX 280 and they both run seemlessly together in Windows 7. My one problem is that I can't seem to find an option to flat out disable the TV if I don't want any windows to be able to be dragged on to the second monitor. Where is this...

    Just finished F.E.A.R. and F.E.A.R. 2...

    They were both amazingly atmospheric and enjoyable, I especially loved the second game. I loved the in game hallucinations, the weapons, the different atmospheres and so on. The A.I. wasn't great but functioned well enough on hard. My big problem is the second game was somewhat easy on hard and...

    Corsair HX620, quick question.

    So I upgraded video cards from an 8800 GT to a GTX 280 about six months ago. However, I did not sell the 8800 GT and I'm just wondering if I can use it as a physx processor for Batman: AA? Would this be too much for my PSU, and is it even possible considering the fact it only has two PCI-E...

    The Withcer EE performance problems

    Man this game is not running well at all, it seems to enjoy crashing and strange dips into the 20's. When I turn my head in certain directions it really drags my performance down big time, and it even hitches on occasion. I'm running 1650X1080 4x aa and 16x AF. Is this game a performance hog or...

    Dell Dimension E520 + New video card

    Quick question, I know dell is particular about using in-house parts on their computers. Is it possible to use a card from New Egg. He's limited by his PSU, however he could probably use a 4650 which would be a huge upgrade from his X1300XT. The upgrades on the website are way over priced and...
