  • Help me decide how to spend my Xmas money!

    What should i spend my money on?

    I got 145 dollars for X-mas, and im debating what i should buy:

    Either, a new monitor, a 19" flatscreen with speakers on it for 140.

    OR

    Buy some new games, like CoD4, BF2 (which is cheap tho), an RTS or RPG, etc. some new/fun games to play online

    I know what you mean. I'm thinking of getting one of the high-end Creative sound cards, to replace my mobo sound. And a 24" flat panel to replace my 2048x1500 tube monitor.

      buy the monitor and only BF2. this will allow you to play POE2 and FH2 (both free). lotsa bang for your buck

            Absolutely the best way to go since BF2 is ~$10 and the mods are free. Do you really need speakers on the monitor?

              I agree with Melee buy Battlefield2 and just download POE2, FH2, and PR. There are still new players getting into these mods so you won't be the only one learning the basics, plus on a TG server you most likely find a fellow member who would gladly help you out; it's all about teamwork with these mods anyways.

              With the extra money buy CoD4 a great game both single and multiplayer, I'm sure you know this already with all the good reviews out there.

              Regarding your interest in a monitor with speakers on it: the speakers will usually sound cheap on LCD monitors. They will probably be 2 1watt speakers at that price. In my opinion you should have a minimal of 5 watt on each speaker.

                Do your eyes a favor and get a refurb flatscreen. Use headphones, not speakers, buy BF2 and buy 3 months of Supporting Membership. You'll like what you see, you'll have lots of game fun for 10 bucks, and you can see what being an SM is like without committing to a year.

                  Neither of these options are booze and/or loose women... This is clearly a trick question, yes?

                          hahaha.

                          Yeah i don't really need the speakers since i always use my headset unless people are over and i want them to hear as well.

                          So i don't really need speakers on the monitor, thats just an extra.
                          as for BF2, i looked online, and yeah its only 10 bucks around here so i can get monitor and that, and as soon as i can get a job ill buy CoD4. that'll work out good.

                          ALSO, i found a really nice monitor, its 200, 150 after rebate, and its 20.1" LCD, Widescreen w/speakers and removable neck to be mounted or something. 5ms, 1000:1 ratio, and everything seems super nice on it.
