    Far Cry is better than I remembered

    I haven't played Far Cry since it came out, and have since played Doom 3 and Half Life 2, like most of you. I just reinstalled it yesterday, and apart from having to relearn how to fire an M4 (very different from CS), this game is FANTASTIC. So any of you guys who have this game sitting on a...

    Windows XP64 and drivers

    Ok guys, I have an Athlon 64 and I'm really tempted by the new beta microsoft released of Xp 64. Is it worth at this point in time to actually try it? Will I be able to get drivers for everything I need? Will I see a difference? Will all my current apps work (most importantly Counter Strike)?

    Trying to choose an LCD

    Annoying background pictures in explorer...

    Recently I installed a program (XPlay2) that allows me to access my buddie's ipod which is formatted for Mac. Ever since I installed this, some folders, when viewed in explorer, have annoying background images. One is a quicktime window that says DVD, another is a CD with a musical note on it...

    Need parts for an NEC LCD monitor

    My uncle gave me an NEC 1700M+ because it doesn't work anymore. I'm pretty sure the problem is the circuit board that has the power button and on-screen controls on it.

    Am I crazy?

    This week I bought an MP3 player, but as it turns out I'm going to be using it as a WMA player. Since WMAs sound as good and are much smaller I decided: why not? So now I have undertaken the task of properly tagging and naming my MP3's before I convert them all to WMA's. Am I crazy to care...
