    M1730 not performing as it should.

    Dell XPS M1730 T9300 @2.5ghz 4gb ram 9800m GTX Sli Windows 7 I got this laptop to play old and current gen games. I don't expect to max todays games but old games yes. I noticed WOW was running kinda bad but thought it was because its an old game not optimized for newer hardware. But I...

    Should i get a motorcycle to combat costs?

    The prices are ridiculous for young drivers. I past my test 2 years ago and it cost me £2000. And that was the cheapest, im paying the price for boy racers.

    Will two 7950's handle next gen?

    I currently have a 7950. It does the job fine apart from the odd game that needs more of a boost. This is at 5760x1080. If i get another 7950 will it handle next gen for a year or more? I fear when consoles upgrade and graphics improve overall. My Vram won't handle the stress of 5760x1080 with...

    Spec Ops: The Line demo Eyefinity/Surround?

    I just tried the demo of spec ops on steam. Seems like a good game but i couldn't get eyefinity to work? My resolution is at 5760x1080 but the game is only on the one screen and probably playing at 1920x1080. Any else tried this out yet?

    7850 for 2560x1440?

    I had a 5850 1gb while waiting for the 7xxx series to come out. At the time i was also playing SWTOR. I tried it a 5760x1080 and it ran absolutely fine. I think i turned shadows to low but that's about it. Everything else was pretty much maxed. So a 7850 for 2560x1440 won't be a problem.

    Games for Eyefinity

    Racing games like Dirt 3 work well. Fifa 12 is also good because you can see the whole pitch when playing.
