Default Just upgraded video card + monitor!

Hey all, I just upgraded my video card to a Radeon 6970 and purchased a 120hz monitor..and WOW what a difference! The 120hz really makes a huge difference in my games. Even just on the desktop you can feel how smooth the mouse moves around! I love it If anyone is on the fence about upgrading their monitor to a 120hz, DO IT!

Why argue which ones better when you can just play on all of them?

Glad you dig your new stuff.


Now could you take your huge 19-line signature and shrink it? It's gaudily braggy and takes up way too much screen real estate. It's like a big annoying ad.

Maybe do this:

Hit "quote" on my post to obtain the code for that... copy it and modify it to your liking. It's smaller, neater, way less redundant, and still properly communicates what hardware you're using.
