    MLAA and Star Trek Online

    I tried out Star Trek Online and MLAA last night, and it was....strange...I dont know exactly how to describe it, but it looked really weird. The colors were right, and the lines were straight, but it was like the perspective was off. Anyone else have the same thing happen?

    6780 vs 4870 Crossifire: Which is better?

    6780 vs 4870 Crossifire: Which is better? Cost wise, I can get another 4870 and run crossfire far cheaper than I can get a 6870. I can, however sell the 4870 and make up some of the difference. Right now in HotDeals there is an asus 4870 on sale with promo code for like $90. Is that my...

    Got my toy (I-Ram) working...

    I got my I-ram working. I set it up with 4 GB of ram (which it is only seeing 3.0gb, but thats probably because I used high density memory which Gigabyte told me might cause problems) and set up my swap file on it. I know what the reviews said, but while XP isnt faster per say, I see fewer...
