    Please recommend me a cheap low power PCIe card

    A 7300 may net you a little lower power consumption because it's 90nm based rather than 110nm. This might be offset by the extra 64mb of ram and slightly higher clock speed though. In either case, if power consumption is important I'd underclock and undervolt the card I got (guide for bios...

    Games that use DX10?, still can play with dx9c?

    You sure about that? Gamepro reports that it just requires Vista and the DX10 rumors were just that, rumors. They may be mistaked though.

    What DPI setting do you have your G7 set to?

    I have an MX518 but the concept is the same. I run at 1600dpi and set all my games to match the speed to one that I feel comfortable with at that dpi. I change dpi all the time in game though. Sometimes just to mix it up and sometimes because I'm trying to do something that requires precision...

    Black & White 2 - 6fps

    Getting another stick of ram isn't going to help you. First thing I would do is reinstall the game. If that doesn't fix it try reinstalling all drivers. From there all you can do is a fresh XP instal. How's your performance in other games? I assumed it was normal.

    POLL: Higher Resolution? Or Higher GFX Settings with Lower Rez?

    It really depends on the game. Some games look fairly decent at low settings so turning them down doesn't bother me much. Other look like complete ass at lowest settings. It also depends on your monitor. If you have a CRT you may not want to have to recallabrate it depending on res and refresh...

    cpou usage 100% while gaming

    It's normal for the cpu to be at 100% in old games like 1.6. Your video card is beyond fast enough to handle the game leaving your cpu as the limit while it pumps out instructions to the video card,

    Carrying a large case to a LAN party, suggestions?

    If I can lug my Chair, rig and 19" crt up 3 flights of stair once a month to go to the local lan party I'm sure you can manage it without some elaborate device to do it for you.

    About to buy a new computer, please check it out

    Enermax Liberty or OCZ ModStream are decent modular PSU's. I wouldn't suggenst modular though as the standard psu's tend to be of better quality.

    I want to make my own game....

    I made the framework for a basic text based rpg a while back borrowing a lot of idea's form the Wrath Lands tutorial. All you need is some basic C++ that can be leaned in a couple of weeks and you can begin to make some pretty decent stuff.

    Need a Cheap Soundcard with 5.1 Optical Out

    I need a sound card for under $100, perferable under $50, that can output sound in 5.1 through optical. Sound quality isnt really a big thing with me as I'm not by any means an audio file but it has to be at least as good as my onboard realtek AC850. Any sugestions?

    Help finding a (new) AGP 8x for under $200

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet but I didn't see it so I'm gonna say it anyways :). EVGA's warrenty also covers overclocking and bios flashes so you dont have to worry about screwing up and breaking the card while overclocking.

    New AMD for prep, for Vista

    Those specs are way overblown to run vista. We arent talking about gaming here, all you need is a moderatly fast processor, decent amounts of ram, and a video card that supports WGF1.0 (dx9).

    New AMD for prep, for Vista

    I think the specs to see all that vista has to offer would be more like this. Any modern CPU (Intel 2.6Ghz+, AMD Any A64 based processor) 1GB Ram hopefully more Geforce 5 series or ATi 9xxx or better

    That's way off, the 3500+ draws far less power than that. According to X-bit labs they draw around 13.4 watts at idle and 47.5 watts at load. Link

    Which would help more

    I can guarantee that if you put in a different processor you wont notice a difference in games. Get another 7800.
