        Sometimes I have trouble falling asleep after gaming, any chance you could give me a copy?

          Just out of curiosity, where did you get it and how much? I am assuming it is not a custom build. I realize the Dell monitor might be a giveaway.

            Second, you might want to rethink your paper title..."video games" is plural, bud. ;)

              it suppost to be plural because i'm not just talking about computer games but xbox ps3 and computer and so on.

              its an alienware computer, but since dell bought out the company i have dell support on the computer instead of alienware's warrenty. (which i had a alienware computer and their support wasn't all that great). it is a custom built computer, its a Alienware Aurora and i added a few things to it, more ram, better prcessor, plus the monitor too. i had a monitor but it was a small 16 inch view and i wanted something a little bit bigger so i added a 21.5 inch screen to it and i must say, its a good monitor i love the picture when i play assassin's creed II on it (so far thats the only game ive played on it while i waited for the computer to install wow and bad company 2 and lfd2 and supreme commander 2). i paid about 2300 dollars for the computer, which is alot for a computer but i had the money for it. VA send me a $4,000 paycheck and 2 weeks later i got another check for $1,600 so i had the money for it, rest of the money went toward bills lol. i know i could have built it myself but id rather just have it prebuilt for me. i'm lazy, plus i wanted to get a warrenty on the computer i'm done fixing problems with a computer and i have to pay to get new parts every now and then spending prolly more money than i should so i got a good warrenty that if anything happens to the computer or its parts dell sends a person to my house and replaces the part for free. and i dont have to pay the person to come here. and i have that warrenty for 2 years. plus i don't get that much time to build another computer, and alot of my friends that could help will not be able to because of their work scheduale and their family time. and college is really chewing up my time for gaming now, i really only get to play games for like 2-3 hours every other day and friday and saturday night is when i play world of warcraft for 4 hours. the rest of the time i spend it studying for my final exams that are coming up, and doing this english paper, and setting up my summer classes and fall classes. so i know alot of you would suggest to build it myself, but i dont have the time, and i didn't really have a computer to use for my school, so i needed a new computer fast. and an more up to date computer.

                Agreed--but that means your verb should be plural, too. ;)

                        I was going to say the same thing. I'm forced to do these things because my wife is an English professor.

                          My mom's an elementary school teacher and my dad is very old school on grammar. It's been drilled into me my entire life. Makes it difficult to browse most internet forums. :p

                            "Are video games addictive" might be more suitable?

                              Using "addicting" like that is a bit odd. "Addicting" is a verb if it is used at all. You need something more like an adjective "Are video games addictive?" Would be a more appropriate title.
