I stil havent managed to get the audio to work through my PC, though. Tomorrow I go looking for adapters and such and a video switch for my left side monitor.
Doesn't the left side monitor have more than one input?

Mine has 2xDVI, VGA, composite, S-Video, HDMI and Displayport. I just use the button on the front to select the different inputs.

Both look pretty good, but I haven't had a chance to play either so I couldn't tell you.
Anybody played these on the PS3?

Also, anybody on the PS3 network? I just got broadband at home so the PS3 can get online now.

I bet it is amazing to play online, but my life would collapse around me if I got sucked into that!

I assumed it would work that way. But apparently you cant switch sources on these monitors.

edit - BTW gamertag = Zerhackermann

I started on that game. I am going to finish up dragon age before I get to far in Dead Space. It's freaky. I do like the gun you start out with.

Anyone playing MAG on PS3?

Looks interesting, I like Modern Warfare on the Xbox, but it has no vehicles and is limited to 18 player matches.

This new MAG has the ability to join in a 256 player battlefield.
Decent reviews so far, but its only on PS3.

Started playing ARMA II. Yes it came out last year but there were no modeling tools so there wasn't that much interest in the game. Not there are a dozen new islands and a bunch of missions for each. Not to mention there are a bunch of custom weapons, vehicles, units and other misc things available. It's a hardware hog though. Even on my current system I'm only getting around 24-25fps with just about everything set to .Very High'.

I was watching my buddy playing the Bf Bad Company 2 demo on the 360 and looked really good. I will get it for PS3 for sure.

On MAG, it looks dated for a brand new game (probably they had to limit what they can display when running the 256 player games).

Il-2, I own it on PS3, it is great when you could find somebody to play with, (unfortunately the PC version, yes, the 5 years old one, is still superior to the console version)

Fallout3 and its add-ons kept me going for a solid year. I have never been so enamored of a game.

I've been wanting it back lately, but I've got too many others on my mind.
