Today I purchased an ATI Radion (sp?) 5770 graphics card which supposedly I need a Mac Pro from mid 2010 or later for it to be supported. But it works in my late 2006 model Mac Pro just fine. I removed an NVidia GayForce 7300 that had 256 VRAM and this 5770 has 1GB of VRAM. No drivers to install at all.

Now I can download bigger porn images, I guess.

Bought these two at Best Buy the other night. Enslaved was $20! Very happy about that, can't wait to play it. Watched Restrepo last night, amazing war documentary, a must see for doc heads.

Restrepo is on Netflix, I haven't got around to watching it yet. Playing a ton of Super Street Fighter IV, I finally put down the cash for a stick. Madcatz Tournament Edition S. Anyone else have a stick?

Yes, I know Too Human is supposed to be terrible, but I had to try it for myself.

Medal of Honour was $10, Drawn to Life Collection was $14.99 and I LOVE GUNBLADE, so I bought the Wii game. And the Slowpokes were 50% off too!

Went to Sears today and checked out the clearance section.



Nabbed each game for $5.95 a piece.

Persona 3 is awesome, though I never played the FES version. P3 is huge time sink but the storyline and the battle system are really good. Probably my favorite MegaTen game next to Digital Devil Saga 1. I would say DDS2 as well but that game loses itself at about 3/4 in an overabundance of Hindu mythology and the main character Serph going through some strange enlightened hippy phase and going all transgender(or something). Love the hardcore cyberpunk flavor of the original though.

Seeing P3 makes me want to finally play Persona 4 that I still have lying around but never got around to actually playing.

I have the same card in my PC, I can max out a lot of the games I own with it, but some titles like Bullet Storm and Dragon Age II, required that I fiddle with a few settings to stay at a consistent 60fps.

On that note, when are those Bulldozer AMD processers coming out? I'm waiting for them before I start building a PC. And money.
