Winamp i always use. VLC for backup. MPC for quicktime files. i use to have windows media player 11, loved it but for some reason it starting crashing and hanging like crazy, just wasn't worth it, rolled back to version 10, installed winamp. haven't looked back. For movies powerdvd.

yes, but that sign is irrelevant!! lol.

be sure to bring your favourite blanket and slippers. Gonna be one cold winter this year. Might need your snow shoes too! better still, sit on the PC, after all, they can do everything, like being a nice bum warmer. i know i use mine as a heater. Intel has finally found a use for their hot cpu's lol

Indeed Crysis is looking mighty fine, can't wait to get my hands on that SDK toolset. I'm still keeping an eye out for GTA4, Hellgate: London, Warhammer Online.

I'm a Mac user and i must tell you of the seductive power of the White side. I switched because i had serious Windows problems... Namely every program i have used on a PC has crashed on me. I will admit i did not like Mac's at first everything was so confusing, (were is the Start menu?) but now it makes more sense than windows ever did. (who needs a Start menu?) And best of all no more viruses that alone was worth the switch. Yes there aren't many games but i have a Micro$oft xbox 360 so its no big loss.

i'm a die hard PC user. i won't lie though, Mac's seem to be a bit more stable when doing any graphic design. But thats what i like about my computer, its all hands on. And i just don't agree with the "if you want an upgrade, chuck your old computer out and go buy a new one." I like the odd $100-$500 upgrade. Sure viruses do suck. But come on, LANS LANS LANS! If you spec your computer right you can keep up with the current consoles and also do everything else. But it appears consoles are becoming more appealing as a gaming outlet and entertainment. Who knows, my next upgrade may be turning my existing (or buying a new) computer into a full workstation.

I also find it appealing that when i go down the main street, i pop into the Apple Store and ask "where's your gaming section?"

Speaking of consoles, who has traded in there old console and 20 games to get that over-the-top expensive brick Playstation 3?

do i get 2x 20" screens, or one 24"?????  this is a serious question! ive always wanted dual screens to work on, but with the 24" is soooo much better for movies/hooking it up as a TV (has s-video and composite inputs)

i'd go for the dual screen. i've found when working with a dual screen system productivity is much more smoother. Then again you could get the single 24" and use your existing CRT as the second monitor. I mean who could say no to watching a movie while playing a game, or that training dvd.
