    Normally I'd jump all over that, but a replacement card isn't cheap :(

    True and you have to get it from EBay.. Prices all over the place and all used or being offered for parts.
    DELL DG008 256MB Laptop Video Card Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 E1705/M1710

    Little Brother you get a card and you have yourself a laptop. Let me know what you decide.

    Pretty Quick System! Now do I keep Norton's and uninstall when time to renew? Got most of the crap already off but still tweaking..

    My $10 Logitech mouse started misbehaving a few weeks ago. Started double-clicking when I single clicked, or not clicking at all.

    Sooooo I ordered the G9X off of Newegg. I haven't had a ton of time to play with it... but I can already tell it's an awesome mouse. Good build quality and enough features for me.

    I really love the G5 Laser Mouse. Seems to fit the hand pretty good.

    Been pretty satisfied with the G9. Don't remember how long I've had it but it's still going strong :)

    Monitor: Asus P248Q
    Vid Card: EVGA GTX 670 FTW

    Monitor is not the fastest in terms of refresh rate and response time but the colors are amazing.

    Vid Card from what I read is a beast when it comes to graphics and physics. Hopefully will run as long and as well as my 8800 GTS 512 did :)

    I still haven't found a need to replace my 295. Other than the fact that most games I have to turn off the dual GPUs... still runs fine. :)

    Well..I got a new Apple laptop from work that might fit the bill as long as I'm employed. Worst case I can "thin out" my gaming system and see what happens. Once the school crap is done maybe get GW2. Played TF2 with the kids last night and WOW...everything was super fast. I'm encouraged.

    We receive a similar deal through work. Great value. Every computer should have the Office suite on it.

    Can anyone recommend an inexpensive joystick that works with Steam? My old joysticks get all screwy with one of the axes on the analog sticks.

    Joy stick or controller? For a controller go with teh Xbox 360 one. Works great.
