It makes me wish that I receive the new laptop before our vacation over Labor Day week. That will have a Blu-Ray drive.

You'd watch a film on a lowly 17-inch screen?! What is the world coming to?

Not a film, but I would certainly watch the special features. Chasing Amy, for example, in addition to porting over all of the features from the Criterion disc also has a nice 82 minute making-of documentary.

Nope. But some TV shows like South Park and special features will all be acceptable on the smaller screen.

Just don't settle for the integrated speakers. They are never acceptable.

Actually, I will accept the integrated speakers in the short run -- or at least use my headphones. The laptop itself plus Office, Photoshop Elements and Quicken (and The Witcher 2!) will be enough money at first. I will add desktop speakers later.

Stupid question but, Why not use the rage speakers? Are you sending them to me

Definitely don't order them with the laptop though unless they are actually a good price. Just wait for somebody to advertise the ones you want on sale.

Id offer to trade my z-5300e system but I have grown quite attached to it. Especially after what I went through to find somebody with a NOS system after my old belkin fried the amp in the sub.

I had a Klipsch 5.1 system for my RAGE, but the subwoofer died -- which means that the whole system died. Sold the speakers themselves. I have not gamed on the RAGE in a long time -- remember, we are talking about a pair of 6800s here! I have just been using headphones with the laptop. Ultimately, I will get some more desktop speakers, but you are darn tootin' that I will wait for the right sale! I am about to drop about $4500 on the computer and the software.

You know I may have use of the internals from your rage after all. I have this certain pc game that will not run on modern video cards. I will have to try it on the 6800's. The last system it ran correctly for me on was agp based.

I am still content with the old Sonys. They do not have the bass response of closed-ear models, but they are extremely comfortable and provide an open, airy sound.

Most of the old ea games.

I am still using said turtle beach x11. It took me a while to get use to the way it sounds (I am not quite sure what it is about it that sounds different then my old skullcandys) Durability wise it has made up for what it lacks in sound quality.

My next headset is going to be the logitech g930. I will probably grow tired of charging it quickly though. They also have a corded version. I may end up just going for that. I have 2 friends that both have the corded version and they never stfu on how great it is.

If you are willing to go against convention and opt for a set of traditional studio headphones, you may find the sound quality is better than the Logitechs. There are some good headphones from the likes of Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, AKG and Sony, among others, that are great for gaming. They don't have mics attached, though, if that is important to you.

I am guessing that the lack of a mic would be a deal breaker. East strikes me as the type of gamer who would use one.

Have you looked at Astro's headsets? I have at all of their headphones, over/on/in your ear styles, they have something for every part of your day. Only thing I don't like about them is their shipping seems a bit high to me (for single items).

Ethelred: Awesome -- except that it disappeared for me. It played right after you first posted it but now all that I get is a blank screen.

its still working great. No point worrying why you cant see it it though. I am sure the x7200 will fix it.
