Graphic Cards

Graphic cards. The main concern of every gamer. A good graphic card gives your eyes orgasms. A bad one gives you headaches. A good one costs a grenade. A bad one, peanuts.

Since the day I decided to buy a Radeon 9800PRO card, I feel terrified playing games on my GeForce2. I get anxious and time passes by slowly. This is an undesirable effect from planning too early.

The 9800PRO costs around $600. Exactly half my pay, which I am gladly and willing to part with since it is from what I know, the second best card in the market. Guaranteed to make me enjoy Final Fantasy 11 at it’s best. I don’t see myself playing FF11 within the next few months as I save up some money for a powerful gaming system.

I “borrowed” my office’s GeForce4 to use for the time being, for about 2 weeks till I get my next pay. I replaced it with my own GeForce2. At least my games aren’t lagging or choppy anymore.

Singnet 1500

Just gave the Singnet Bandwidth-on-Demand promotion a try. 1.03cents for every 1MB downloaded through their 1500kbps line. It’s 3 times faster than my normal plan. Theoretically, I should be able to go as high as 180KBytes/sec but I managed only up to 155KBytes/sec. Check out the screenshot. The BitTorrent file has about 3500+ seeders and 1700+ leechers.

And yea, paycheck was a great movie!
