    So whats new guys? This saturday I went to the computer store and picked up a new video card, wireless mouse and keybaord combo and some other little trinkets. Now I'm posting this from my tv.

    Took some time for me to realize my brother was right and this Nvidia (sp?) didn't need a power plug, but my old card was too fucked to work correctly off my tv.

    This is pretty sweet. 42" of porn... errr... internet surfing off my HDMI-2 connection.

    Along with my surround sound this is going to be pretty badass once I get tv hooked up to it.

    Not really overkill, I don't have to move my laptop around to surf the web, and when I get tired of it I can just turn the tv on with a button push. Everything is basically all-in-one now.

    Okie doke, ask and you shall receive. I still need to clean up the wiring, so it's sort of a mess still.

    and yeah, I haven't set up my screen sizing yet. I need my guru brother to come over and help me figure it out.


    Edit: Holy freaking dusty... This house sucks for one thing. Massive amounts of dust covers everything in a month.

    Dust comes from your skin, dirt, and pets.


    Clean the house and quit scratching your arms.
