    I guess I should update that I now have a new monitor, a Samsung B2430HD. It's a HDTV and a 1920 x 1080 monitor. It's great because although the resolution of MSTS didn't change (1280 x 1024), I can...

    A lot of ATI cards seem to have this problem, including mine. The trick is to disable driver-controlled anti-aliasing (check the box "Application Controlled"). Just make sure to uncheck the box...

    No, I'm pretty sure nVidia doesn't allow two of their competitor's (ATI) cards to run in Crossfire. You'd need either an Intel or AMD chipset. You might be able to run two ATI cards at once, without...

    The Athlon II X4 635 would be a bottleneck for a 5850 (heck, my Phenom II X4 940 can barely keep up at times!). I would shoot for a 5770 or even a 6850. Something with only one (or less) power...

    I tried a pre-Beta release, and it was pretty good (VERY basic UI though). I'm going to wait for Firefox 4 then decide between the two.

    Only thing there is that GTX 470 is WAY overkill for MSTS and OpenRails. Even video rendering would be a light load for it. He could go for something more like a GTS 450 or ATI 5770 and it would be...

    I'm still considering my options, but the Modoc school seemed the best choice. The price has made me second guess it (and third, fourth, and fifth guess it...). When I said it could put me ahead, I...
