    It depends on the game enginge, and if it does support OpenGL. Generally OpenGL is faster than Direct3D in my experiances with the Geforce line of cards. The Half-life engine, Unreal Tournament Engine, UT2003 engine, Serious Sam engine, ALL like OpenGL better than Direct3D, and it runs better when you select OpenGL. Basically if OpenGL is an option, then select it! It's also not an M$ POS, where as Direct3D is! For some reason OpenGL actually looks better to me than Direct3D does. I can't actually say why, but it just looks sharper, and has slightly more detail in my eyes. OPENGL ALL THE WAY!!!

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.
