Not running a TFT in native mode doesnt work for me at all. Its a blurry mess (unless its exactly 1/2).

I tend to find the same, you can however set your video card not to stretch the image to fill the panel, in which case you will just get black borders around the image.  Still not ideal, but if you really need to run a lower resolution it works.  Also really handy to at least set this so that it doesn't stretch non-aspect ratio stuff, ie: older games meant for 4:3 monitors will not be stretched to widescreen and look horrible.

Oh yeah forgot about that! Even though I always have that setting activated. :-[
I just only know people who stretch old games. :P
Carry on then ...  ;D

I was expecting it next week, as they posted yesterday, but it came TODAY!!!!

All I can say is: beauty, pure beauty.  Never in my life have I experienced any sort of gameplay that remained above 30 frames per second, and would not have dreamed of playing at an average of 60 (trialled with Batman Arkham Asylum, my favourite and most played game).

Will give Crysis a good ol' go tomorrow night after work :D

My enjoyment was short lived my friends...

I had to re-install windows, and now I find myself in need of a new power supply as my other upgrade (a new disc drive) requires SATA power connection, which my current PSU only has one, and that's for the HDD...

On upside, will probably also be going with a copy of Windows 7 (legal this time, that's what screwed me over this time to begin with...).

Now I'm just hoping i won't need a new mobo...

You just need to know that the white one is molex and the black one is S-ATA.
'any kind of discussion of randomness ALWAYS WILL EQUATE to being able to critically hit a mech's reactor by firing a micro beam laser while facing 80 degrees to the side, shooting the ground, which would cause a random explosion which would randomly crit his entire team's reactors which would randomly cause the server itself to explode which would randomly generate a strange quark which would randomly hit the earth and randomly randomness randomfapp the shit fapp random!'
