    Yep. I freaked out when I got it though. Pluged it in and it would not pick up a signal. tried different vga and dvi cables reboots and thought it was a bum LCD. Just when i was about to give up I tried using the power cord that came with it and then it worked. Seems it did not like my old one.

    Then a few issues with BF2142 not loading but finally everyting is working great.

    Re: Upgradeitis

    Not sure if any of you knew this, but I wasn't gaming for awhile because my car died. Since I only had about $500 for a down payment I had to part out my nice gaming rig to help fund the cost of a new car.

    Anyhoo, since then I started using my Dell with an ATI x300. Yeah, that wasn't going to cut it. I'm not sure that card can run Tetris above 800x600.

    So I got me an ATI X1950 GT, and a Samsung DVD burner with lightscribe.

    Next paycheck I am sending Havox $70 for his SB Fatality sound card.

    Next up is an HP rocket raid card, along with a TT eSATA HDD enclosure to put my 320 giger into.

    I am going to try and get at least a year out of this setup.

    Picked up a razer tarantula.

    I'm still trying it out, but i'm not happy with it so far.

    I can get the macros to work in wordpad, excel etc. Not in BF2142 which is what i bought the thing for.

    I've heard of some problems with that keyboard. Hopefully you get your problems resolved.

    Affter talking with Razer tech support I flashed the firmware on the KB and updated the drivers. Still no luck in the game but it still works in notepad, etc.

    Maybe i should return it and get the G15 (is the G15 really that big?)
