Hey Whirlwind got any game recommendations?
Hey Vern, well i am alittle behind on my gaming...but that is soon to change as i have Fallout 3 sitting here waiting to be opened and FarCry 2 that i got with my new video card....I just want to wait until I have enough time to play, because once I start, I know I won't want to stop, and right now my gaming time is limited.....but not for long.

I am currently playing Rainbow Six Vegas 2...even though I am moving slowly in it because of my time limitations. It is a fun game....i would recommend that game with no problem at all.....even though if you have played the first Vegas....then you won't find much new stuff in this one....the game is fun....I just which they would have picked a new location.

That's what I'm talking about!

See if the HD 4850 drivers actually work with it like Rican wondered

Not to invade this thread but, with a P45 crossfire board, what would be a better choice between the two? ASUS 4870DK or XFX 260? Are the performances pretty much the same? I'm stuck in the middle... Thanks.
