    1366x768 is the same ratio as 1280x720... the tv accepts 720p and will scale it. most likely.. :p

    Garage Band Error

    I finally got Only to download and extract properly. It gives me the performance error even with the large buffer. I guess it is indeed ram and hdd speed... which is weird, because THTF is about as many tracks as Only. Maybe its time to up this thing to 1.25gb! edit: It actually ran...

    Garage Band Error

    The Hand that Feeds for GarageBand ran well when I had my 1.25GHz mini, but it was upgraded to a hitachi 7200/8mb hdd and a 1gb stick. I'm about to try it on my ibook.. 1.33/512mb/4200rpm/2mb hdd - THTF runs pretty well on the ibook too.. Make sure to set the processor performance to...

    Low Power Speakers to go with X-Fi?

    the br1's aren't powered (no built in amp) ( ahh you mentioned that) I've never tried a sonic impact, but it seems grossly underpowered. I don't have monitors myself (6.5" Infinity Bookshelf speakers on 100w/channel amp).. they have to be spaced fairly far apart to make a good sound stage...

    Low Power Speakers to go with X-Fi?

    monitors are quality speakers, aiming for accurate reproduction of the source, for listening at close distances in an evenly spaced sound field. (ie, environment like a mix console, or pc desk) , potentially less fatiguing than headphones for extended usage. With proper arrangement and...

    Low Power Speakers to go with X-Fi?

    Have you ever considered a pair of powered studio monitors? Something decent can be found at a fair price. ~6/6.5" Main drivers. near field sound... awesome for music, and everything else. edit: maybe the 6s are a bit pricy. I like the bass much better than on smaller drivers. 4" or...

    How did FEAR get such a great rating? Alternate view: 7 (Mini-review inside)

    Medium Textures, light and shadows. Max on most of the goodies like particles and fog, etc. Not slow anymore. Can't see a difference.

    X800XT PE vs X850XT PE

    Why would he buy a 3200+ when he already owns a 3700+? I'd say just stick it out with what you have until the resolutions you run at become to slow to play.

    BattleField2 stuttering?

    Have you tried adjusting your AGP Aperature in the bios? 256 or 512 works well for me. I run a 3200+ on a K8N Neo2 Platinum, 2x512mb ram and a 6800 Ultra... setting the textures, lighting and shadows on medium, with everything else at high is a good compromise. You can try 2X/4X or 4X/4X...
