Whoops, yeah getting back on topic...  I didn't get much this year.  So far I just got clothes, chocolates and a magazine :P  but I'm supposed to be getting an MP3 player from my mom once it's in stock XD.

Oh the giving side, I got my dad a calendar, my mom two candles & candleholders for our mantle, my sister a necklace.  But the massive purchase was both me and my mom getting a digital camera & photo printer for my sister. !!!

LCD's are getting better though. Most games can be played at a <16ms response time. A worry with the Benq monitors is dead pixels  :-\. They only offer a 7 day dead pixel warranty over here, and u need atleast 4 dead pixels for a replacement >:(. I thought I had a dead pixel when i first opened the box, but it turned out to be a spec of dust. *phwew*

How much do they cost anyway?
 

Benq monitors are cheap, but a lousy warranty. If your not too worried about dead pixels, then go the Benq 767. 12ms response time, and it looks pwetty cool 8) Over here it cost's about $450, over double the price of a normal CRT. CMV is some new company selling LCD monitors. Their latest has a 8ms response time and a 1 dead pixel warranty :D. Their downside is there uglinest though, my like CRT's I guess! This is about $500 over here.

My interest in becoming greater in Half-Life 2  lol
 

So far, my personal experience has been great. HL2 isnt as fast packed as other games, so i hardly notice lag.....you might run into profblems with CS: Source though  :P

and now to get back on topic......

I bought Rise of nations today, it's pretty confusing. Probably take me a few days to figure out. I'm not sure if I should return it for Rome: Total War  ???
