    I just got me an nVidia 8600 GT for free. Beats me why I don't just stick with nVidia cards because they have some capabilities ATI cards can only dream of.......like dualspan.

    BWA! HAHAHA!

    The 747 seemed puny when viewed on one monitor. With two monitors, it looks much better:

    I can't get into online rpg-style games. Beats me why. My friends can. My older daughter's already deep into WoW and she's 12. Maybe it's just me. I have a mechanical frame of mind. I'm also old school which is why flight sims are still on top of my list.

    I'm not new to online gaming though. I started playing one-on-one dogfights with Amiga Falcon via modem/null modem back in 1988. Then, I got on the Air Warrior/Warbird (more dogfights) craze followed by Duke Nukem 3D and GLQuake (1997). Then, there was Quake 2. I remember buying 2 STB BlackMagic 3Dfx Voodoo2's (SLI) just for that game.

    After Quake 2....... PFFFFFT. I was burned out. I quit online gaming which was around the same time Evercrack first appeared.

    I haven't really gotten back online except for Desert Combat Extended/Battlefield 2 and that's only because the husband of my wife's cousin has a private server for those 2 games.

    With the new baby, I'll be spending more time at home once more. So, I may end up gaming online again.

    I do need to get a second gaming pc. My daughter's been hogging this pc more and more.

    Add: Actually, I also played the original Unreal Tournament online. Then I got burned out.

    I was messing around with multi-monitor on Far Cry using dualspan/horizontal span in the nVidia control panel. It's immediately clear why most have 3 monitors for games. The crosshairs are awkwardly placed if there's just 2 monitors like here:


    The crosshairs would be at the left edge of the 2nd monitor. It takes 3 monitors to center the crosshairs properly. The game screen resolution was 2304 x 864. AA was off and AF was at 1x. Everything else were maxed out. That 8600 GT's starting to chug.

    In this age of 3D eye candy extravagance, I still find the simple 2D graphics and the gameplay of MS Close Combat 2: A Bridge Too Far quite engaging:

    All that talk about new PAF aircraft had me searching for more FSX addons.

    I have a fondness for COIN aircraft like the OV-10 plus the Pucara and the Tucano shown here:

    This F-8 Crusader just begs to have PAF markings.......

What are the good PC games you've played?
