    suggested video card

    Well it looks like my 7950 gx2 has fallen through, and I have just sold my 7600gt. So I'm looking for a new video card and was hoping for suggestions. I'd like to stay away from ATI, and am looking for the best bang for the buck. Thanks for any help!

    new video card!

    I don't think I can do the step-up program as I bought the card used. That GTS sounds like a really nice card, and considering the price even better.

    new video card!

    ouch, those results are a little depressing... is it the significant increase in pipelines that causes such an increase in fps? i figured with the higher amount of ram it may compete. also from the pc power cooling website they show those power supply myths, do any of these hold true?

    new video card!

    Thanks for all the replies. Yeah I was debating on whether or not to get it, mainly because of the substantial increase in pipelines compared to even the 7950 GX2. In the end I figured the 7950 was a great deal so I figured I would go for it. Anyone have any ideas on the PC power and cooling...

    Creative Fatality 1010 mouse

    The G5 is only 45 last I checked. It's not just the DPI which makes a mouse better, there are different ways of achieving the 2400 DPI rating. The a4tech x7 mouse has 2500 DPI but it is definately not a better mouse IMO. As far as comfort I find my Copperhead most comfortable, but thats all opinion.

    Creative Fatality 1010 mouse

    Actually when I purchased the Fatality i payed ten dollars less than what the G5 was going for. The Copperhead was the one that was over double the price of the Fatality.

    Creative Fatality 1010 mouse

    I have owned the fatality, and I currently own both the G5 and the copperhead. At the moment i'm going to have to say the G5 is better only because of the cold boot issue, and the lack of updated firmware for the past few months, the cold boot issue is still unresolved. I prefer the feel of the...

    Creative Fatality 1010 mouse

    I owned one, but found the pointer to be very jittery (apparently a problem with the fatality). Returned it for the G5 and haven't looked back since.

    AVG Anti-Spyware

    I tried it out. Didn't work as well as ad-aware or spybot, seemed to only pick up cookies.
