    ” PC gaming is pretty much hassle free when you’re not trying to play new games on an integrated GPU like the GeForce 9100. “

    But no, I can’t even run Psychonauts on medium settings, I don’t even know what the hell is going on. I have to not only run the game in half my monitor’s resolution, I have to turn anti-aliasing off and put everything else on low, and that’s just Psychonauts! I have to put Rainbow Six Vegas 2 on the lowest resolution possible to get it running in full FPS with anti-aliasing on. I don’t even know what it means when a graphics card has an integrated GPU, please elaborate? “

    that’s because it’s integrated you can’t play shit with integrated.  if you want gaming, you need a dedicated GPU, period. also, i would recommend instead a GTS 250 or an ATI 4850 instead of a 9800.  it’s just a little newer technology for a couple bucks more. “

    GTS 250 or ATI 4850 huh? I’ll look into it, thanks. Do those have dedicated GPUs? “

    of course
    they ARE dedicated GPU’s

  2. Louie CK actually does something differently than most comics in that he actually retires his whole routine every year. So really unless he puts out a new CD every year no one will ever hear all of his material.
