    That's a really sad attempt at trolling. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    I never heard of UltraSharp 24" monitors. What's special about them? :ohdear:
    Dell Ultrasharps are widely considered one of the best monitors available.

    According to benchmarks this processor is ~35% more powerful than a same clocked single core atom, and almost exactly the same as a same clock dual core atom. But the graphics let it down a LOT. Apparently VIA is close to a major update to their graphics chipsets that may actually be able to play Source games on ultra-low settings.

    I think it was 10 with no enemies on screen. Each enemy took down about a quarter of a frame. Half Life: Blue Shift at 640x480 right now gets about 20 during most of the intro sequence.

    Oh my god, That is worse then I expected. Do you think you can find some sort of adapter to let you atleast install a PCI video card. A PCI 32mb Ati Rage pro gets better fps!

    Yes it does, because that is a dedicated card with twice the VRAM as this one shares with the memory. And no, no adapters because there are no pin headers for PCI, PCIe x1, PCIe X16, AGP, etc on it at all. I think I've seen some USB video cards but they only drive displays, not power graphics at all.

    I can't find a way to make it output sound through HDMI, and there are no sound ports of any kind on it. There are pin headers for line in, out, mic-in, and SPDIF out. I need those.

    trying to get games mostly from steam, but that's a good one. I'll look at other distributors and see if I can find a copy.

    Okay so somehow I managed to fuck up installing windows. Don't ask me how, I don't know. There was no internet explorer, and almost no drivers at all on the computer. So I reformatted and am going to install 7 again.
