    you tend to miss the point entirely and have no useful advise. I'm willing to risk the off-chance that you actually have useful information and just add you to my ignore list.

    Well, that's not much better. Its like a car that someone designed with no front wheels. not a bug because it was intentional, but at the same time the results aren't that good.

    anistropic filtering doesn't do much of anything either.

    it seems some objects are not correctly textured/lit at some distances as well.

    Re: win xp taskbar config

    no, for this to work, the taskbar cannot appear when the mouse is brought to the same edge, but rather should appear when the mouse is brought to a different edge.

    Re: BUILDING your own COMPUTER DIFFICULTY level???

    probably an issue with either the power switch, or the power connections. I don't think the mobo is getting power.
