    I bought it at release and thought it was worth the 25 I spent on it. Sure it's not way up there with the best shooters, it's a decent shooter that's got a fairly decent length campaign, stunning visuals, and interesting game mechanics. The only two things that annoyed me about the game was the abrupt ending and the invisible walls which led you down a linear path, other than that it's an amazing deal for a fiver.

    Hell yes, Rage is worth 5. It looks superb on PC. At least, it does on mine.

    It's my 3x Samsung S23A700D monitors.

    The colours on this thing is stunning out of the box, haven't needed to even adjust the colours or brightness!

    Oh and also the 3D via TriDef in games is AMAZING! Played Supreme Commander, Guild Wars, League of Legends, and even PS3 games last night and my jaw just dropped.

    Pretty amazing, I always thought i would struggle to play with 3 screens like that but so far does it look natural?

    The gaps between the screens would annoy me.

    Before Vista came along I used to always play with 2 monitors with a gap in the middle, it was weird at first but you got used to it after a while and helps a lot width wise.

    3 screens though would be better as I can actually see what's in the middle this time round. xD

    I used to have 2 monitors 1 was for teamspeak and other apps while I gamed so I didn't have to minimise to check, I didn't try having both run the game as they were different sizes 15 and 20 inch.

    And that still isn't enough to stop me from buying a 680. I had too many driver problems with ATI cards to give them a second chance just yet.

    Dead Space 2 is 3.75 on Steam at the moment

    Well I decided to go with a stock reference relabled GTX680 2GB in the end. Sure I could wait for another month for the 4GBs to come back out (really bad fabs happening atm) but in the end I decided to go for what's already proven, the reference card being cool, quiet and 105 cheaper than the 4GB! Used 50 of that left over dosh towards the Active DP to DL-DVI-D Adapter.

    you seen the 4gb Gainward Card it's got a Sick Design (even though the only time you ever look at it is when you get it or open your Case to clean it out lol)

    The slowdown was unbearable. Love a fresh OS anyway.

    I seem to compulsively collect random programs.

    That's weird. Are you using an older version of Windows?

    I use Windows 7 and haven't had any problems.

    What version of Win7 are you currently on?

    i don't think its the operation system that's affecting your pc, its the performance.

    You should do a system clean up every now and then and try not having to many processes running all at the same time.

    Professional 64bit.

    It's probably just a placebo affect. I think it's faster but it's really not.

    I'm currently using an i5 2400. Think it's worth upgrading to an i7?

    Its not placebo Windows does get bloated.
    BeforE I reinstalled my win7 onto an SSD ti took close to 2 minutes to boot up and allow me to launch firefox.
    Best thing to do with steam is install it on a seperate drive to the OS.
