    Please help ME!! I am stuck gaming in 640 X 480. I can't tell I am dead until I see the ground!!

    The Death in slow motion is giving me nightmares..I play FPS and it's like I am the Six Million dollar man. Yes I can hear the sound every time I run..dah..dah,dah..dah.dah...

    If I try to watch a movie I never know who is in it becasue I never see the whole screen.

    The stuttering is so bad I have a intermission every 2 minutes...be right back gotta get some popcorn.

    I'l be honest, I don't need the card myself, but I could find a good home for it in a friend's system.
    I won't win anyway, I never win anything.:oops:

    well......ill just tell you the truth about my situation, my parents constantly use money for .... construction costs, bills, gambling, stuff to make them happy.... and who knows what else. they constantly break the promises to me about "oh i will never touch this money and you can use it for anything when you need it."

    when the time comes that i DO need it..... its not there, i always question them about it then all that comes back up is like "what the hell, you always ask for stuff we always gave it to you so shut up already before i slap you." and blah blah blah

    well.... they always borrowed money from me and never payed me back, money i have either worked my ass off for or recieved for a gift from my close friends and cousins to try and get a few things that make me happy...... then they ask for the money to do whatever they want, whether it be them or my sister.

    they dont even feed me very well and i am forced to spend that money on my food, something they are obligated as parents to give me. as of right now, i am living off beef jerky and granola bars for my meal during the day and some cereal in the morning. the food was really where all my money went. i used to have thousands because i tried to save but its all gone now...... i had dreams of finally being able to afford that new rig i always wanted only to have my ticket snatched from me because of them.......

    sure i get a couple things like my comp, but thats onlly after pestering them so much and most of it is actually from my own money.

    from what it looks like now, they owe me at least $4000 in the food they refused to give and the money they took for their amusement . my life with them is full of anger, broken promises and hiding behind a mask

    if i get the video card, i might eventually be able to build a cheap little system that can help me in my daily tasks.

    I have always dreamt of a Media PC but I have never had an opportunity to build one. I don't know what to do without one?! Nothing better than HD Pr0n and the simpsons. Even our main TV is going out, with color bleeding in reds, greens, and shades of both... Im dying here AHHH I need to put use to my 19" LCD TV (HD Compatible)!

    First thing:This is the second wonderful contest organised by DH and ECS so thank you to both.

    Now to tell you why would I want to win this card:I want to build for my parents an entry level pc to use it with an internal TV tuner,cause they want to have a TV in the bedroom,and a LCD TV is much expensive.I already bought the power supply,memory and cpu and I would need one of these cards to complete the system.

    I want one because I need a faster movie play-back especially when I am dealing with HD movies formats online and quicktime. Not to mentions it got a Pure-video technology to fire up your movie experience!

    I need this card because….

    Once upon a time there was a Breton named Elohim. Elohim was frolicking along in the great world of Tamriel rendered on his trusty ATI X1600 Pro video card. He was torching rats, impaling imps, and bashing trolls left and right having a hell of a time! Suddenly… the world went black… “What happened”, thought Elohim to himself. Suddenly there were no more rats to be torched, no more imps to be impaled, and a decided lack of trolls to bash. In fact there was nothing at all…

    Now, as I am the narrator of this story, I am sure that everyone out there is hanging on my every word in suspense at what might happen to Elohim next. Well, I would also like to find out. But until I get a video card better than my ATI 9600 Pro, which is what I am using since my X1600 Pro croaked mid game a couple of months ago, I can’t play that stupid game at any sort of reasonable frame rate! So, please give me this nice new shiny Nvidia video card so poor Elohim can continue to torch his rats, impale his imps, and bash the friendly neighborhood troll.

    (story to be continued upon receipt of decent video card)

    I would love an opportunity to build my 16 year old step son a computer he could actually use rather than a 4 or 5 year old system that doesn't even have usb 2.0 ports on it... This would force me to comply rather than giving up my fiance's system and building her a new gaming system in time for ut3... which of course I'll be needing to go quad-core by then as well... Help?
