Just a settings question for yous.. My pc, 2.4Ghz, P4, grphics card Nvidia FX5200 -with 256ram, monitor is HP Pavillion MX70 - 17" CRT monitor What sort od display settings should I be running? At the mo it is set to 1280x1024 True Colour (32 bit) 60hz. I understand what all those things mean but I don't quite follow how they all work together so I'm wondering if you can advise me on better settings for the display as there seems to be hundreds I could choose from and when I start going through them all I just get confused... The machine isn't used as HTPC (yet) as I watch dvd's on a normal TV and the S-vid out from the pc is crap. Even if I did the whole doogle thingy to make it a RGB scart from the pc to the tv I doubt it woubt be better than my normal dvd player and I'd have to turn the computer on everytime I wanted to watch a film and the keyboard and muose keys arn't long enough to stretch from the TV area to the sofa etc. etc. (Please feel free to correct me on any of this!!). Also, if I did decide to start using it as HTPC, what sort of changes should I make? The computer bit itself is a HP Pavillion 462.uk 4.gb HD and 256RAM memory.. OK, enough rambling from me, I've even bored myself he so lord knows how you are feeling!!!
