I'm glad i took Quaternion's advice and waited until i could afford the Radeon HD 5850
(it's a walking wet dream for gamers :) )
I could of gone for a slightly smaller HDMI Monitor.
But when i saw the "AOC" brand, i just couldn't resist getting the largest one they had!
(as i've had this "Web Handle" for evah!...)
As for the Keyboard, the jury's still out on it, but it sure is pretty!
(Ok, i've had the keyboard for a year. It's wicked cool...)
Lastly, the mouse...
I never learned how to WASD in true MMO style, i've always used the "keypad" for movement.
Given the ability to combine the two?
Gonna log in now, wish me luck...
Holy !@#$% So THAT'S what "Maxed Settings" looks like!
OooOOooO I love my GF! A present came today... (see "Speakers")
died. And i got a 'upgraded' replacement for free... (it's RED!)
