Running games below 1024x768 looks great, in my eyes. I'm not a graphic freak, so from what i can see, running some games at 800x600 looks perfect, say in games like sin or wages of sin.

Why are you so concern what others may think about you, if you run games at low settings? I say whatever looks good to you, enjoy it.

I dont buy things because other people may have them or if they are the newest stuff out. I buy what looks good to me, not by the outlook of this world. So if i missed a entire hardware generation, so be it.

I have thought about it for a long time. Its the right thing to do, with a 256MB boost i can play all of my games that i own with ease. 64MB is great, but 256mb , plus with the 9250 , thats perfect or near perfect.....I understand AGP are more powerful, but pci is all i have and its fine.

First off, my wife has windows xp , and windows xp is not as advanced as 98. I have to keep windows 98 se for alot of reasons. One reason, because i run my own abandonware site and forum, second i have over 350 pc games, about 80% of them are old great games, from sonic 3d blast, sonic r, blood 2 , blood the new nightmares, leadfoot, powerslide, turok 2 seeds of evil , megarace 3 and lots more. Playing these games on xp works, but you have to change some things around.

With windows 98 se, you dont have to change nothing. Plus overall 98 se is more stable, in terms of reinstalling windows which only takes about 15 - 30 mins, the layout is better too. Windows xp is just newer and you can play the new games with ease. Other then that, windows 98 se is the best os.

I'm not buying xbox 360 until like 3 or 4 years from now. Why?

I have over 50,000 dollars right now, but i am no fool. I'm not paying 300 or more for a new system, and i damn sure aint paying 60 or 70 dollars for a video game. No game is worth 60 bucks, not even my favorite game of all time Grand Theft Auto.

I mean, whats the rush? I'm still enjoying playing xbox , n64, psone, dreamcast and my computer games. I'm not buying 360 until the system is = 130 used or 150 new and the games at 4.99 , 9.99 , 12.99, 14.99 , 19.99, 24.99.
