    Need help with WXGA (1366 x 768) and my nvidia cards

    Yup, you were 100% correct. Once I connected the DVI cable, instead of the analog vga cable, I was able to select resolutions all the way up to 1600 x 1200. Thanks again for the help.

    Whats the cheapest, fastest 6800GT to get?

    I say go with the BFG 6800 GT OC. I found mine at for 399.99. Shipping was free, but overnight was only 5 dollars. So I overnighted it. It IS the fastest stock 6800 GT available. Currently my BFG 6800 GT is at 440 / 1.150 using a Artic Cooler NV 5 SIlencer. I loaded the BFG 6800...

    Let's see, 1) Not so honest software publishers - not delivering demos before a $55 game is released. Biased game reviewers. Sometimes fairly buggy games released (ex. Enter the Matrix, what a cluster fuck) and 2) Highly intelligent consumers base with powerful PCs with CD/DVD writers...

    Basically, if you can't convince the mass general public that said crime is actually a crime. That is causes negative effects and that there is a victim. Then you have no chance of sucessfully enforcing and maintaining said law.

    Totally agree. "You downloaded, installed, and played a game that you aren't legally licensed for?" I don't see many prosecuters jumping after folks for that.

    IP addresses are not unique and can easily be hidden or spoofed. Doesn't sound like much of a fingerprint to me. I am pretty damn sure that any mass uploaders already have their bases covered.

    When are 512 meg video cards supposed to come out?

    Everything bit of analysis that I have read (babelfish) seems to point less delayed lauch compared to the delayed shipping launch of the 6800 series. Nvidia seems to be perfecting their new fab processes (110nm) and there should be more 1.6 and 2.0 GDDR3 available. I am pretty sure Nvidia...

    Compusa SUCKS!

    Once, as a gift from my employer, I received a $100 gift certificate from CompUSA . I hate that store so much, at first I thought the gift card was a joke. Eventually, I gave the card away without using at all. Yes, CompUSA sucks! BestBuy too!
