    Left 4 Dead, offline, LAN co-op

    Yeah we did what Frozen said to do as well. All in all a pain in the ass just to play some simple multiplayer. Hopefully this will be fixed and so forth in the retail game thats coming in a few weeks. You would have thought BETA testers of the PC game would have been voicing alot of the...

    Left 4 Dead, offline, LAN co-op

    We figured it out. We basically have to run a dedicated server, then both connect to it via the openserverbrowser command. Once opened we had to type "connect number) to connect to the server he set up. We are now in co-op, offline, LAN mode

    Left 4 Dead, offline, LAN co-op

    Normally my co-worker and I play a ton of multiplayer/co-op steam games here at work on our laptops. We don't have the ability to online with Steam but it has never been a problem before as we are basicallly connected via a LAN and use Offline mode. We both grabbed the Left 4 Dead demo today...

    ATi 4870 & WotLK

    The dynamic shadows were in effect before when I was on Test and had 0 issues. They clearly did something either to the shadows or what not to mess everyone up.

    ATi 4870 & WotLK

    Something is wrong after a recent patch that they need to fix. I was running 60fps (vsync, 1920x1200 4aa, all settings maxxed) before a recent patch. After the patch using the same settings my FPS were around 13-14. Slidding the shadow bar to low gave me back the 60fps basically. But shadows...

    8.10 Beta Catalyst Drivers

    Installed this morning. Crysis, WoW, CoD4 all play "smoother" CoD and Crysis even went up in fps. Manual fan control is nice as well. Tabbing out of games and back to desktop is also quicker for me now. On the 8.9betas and 8.9 official it would lag and stutter a bit while switching.

    HD 4870 1GB (DDR5) H.Q.

    I had the Visiontek 4870 512MB card and replaced it with a HIS 4870 1GB card. Games are noticably "smoother" and the HIS card is actually quieter then the Visiontek.

    HIS IceQ 4870

    Anyone know if HIS has announced or has plans to release a 4870 IceQ version of their ATi card? I have the IceQ3 3870 and it is amazingly more quiet and cooler the the normal 3870. Google search didn't really come up with anything.

    BioShock and forced AA

    So our Nvidia brethren are able to force AA in Bioshock. Any thoughts on when we'll see such ability from our ATI cards? The game of course is totally playable, but after having AA enabled in every game I play for many years now, not having AA makes the game looks rough. edit: Hmmm...

    My Dell 3007 looked like this coming out from sleep mode...

    Yeah, if and when you ever need to return a monitor to Dell. They send out a new one to you, then once you receive it, you send out the bad monitor to them.

    Always amazed at what Shuttles can do

    I have a SN25P running a FX-57 and a newly installed X1900XTX. Was a little worried if the system would be stable with such a beast of a video card in it, but low and behold it's been about 1+ week and the system is rock solid.

    Stand suggestions for dual 2005fpw's

    Just wondering if anyone had some links for stands that would hold 2 2005fpw's. Atm my dual 2005fpw's are each using the oem stands that came with the monitors. Just think it would probably look cleaner with one stand holding both monitors. nm, found Ergotron DS100

    Anyone Successfully Running SB81P and BFG7900GTX

    I have an SN25P (basically the amd ver. of the shuttle series) and have had no problems with a x1900xtx. I know it's not exactly what you wanted to know but it gives you an idea of what these shuttles can handle.

    I think the OP is asking for a way to hook up 2-3 DVI inputs into a single monitors dvi input and have a selector to choose which is displayed on screen. something like this I think.

    Dualscreen or Widescreen?

    If you can't go duel widescreens I'd say go with a 20" or a 24" widescreen,I personally have 2 2005fpw's. If I'm PC gaming on the main one, the secondary is either showing me Teamspeak/MP3 player/Web Pages or my 360. I also have the second screen hooked up to my Media Center so I can watch...

    some ? about X800 850

    The x800 series only takes up one slot. ATI's x850 pro takes up two slots though some 3rd party companies made single slot x850 pro's. That link above is a good deal for the x800xl, I just bought one to replace my 9800pro.

    ATI or Nvidia NextGen DX10 card for Conroe setup

    People most likely pick the brand they have had the most luck with. I know I had an Nvidia card, then switched to a 9800pro ages ago. Since then I've only bought ATI cards because the cards have run perfect for me and I like the brand. But I'm sure someone is just opposite of me, they had ATI...

    hot deal on ati AGP cards

    My x800xl just came in today to replace my 9800pro for my SS51g system. Honestly it doesn't seem that much louder to me, maybe its because I'm use to my x1900xt fan in my other shuttle lol.
