About 2 years ago I graduated finally got a full time job that paid decent and could afford to upgrade from my pentium 3 computer, ha!
I got a dual core e2200 computer package from best buy. After that I eventually got an 8500gt graphics card. I read about this game crysis that was the prettiest thing ever. Then I bought the maximum edition and it ran....terrible, ha!
Not being able to afford a better gpu yet, I found a solution! I had a component output adapter for my gpu, so I hooked up my computer to my 27" toshiba crt and played Crysis in 640x480, tv's native resolution, success! It was alot of fun, and a gorgeous game plus it ran well at such a low rez. And it still looked great at that resolution on a crt tv. I also used this to play gta4, another game that was harsh on the gpu.
