Would have been nicer if the package came with the manuals for each of the games.

What exactly is Team Fortress 2? Multiplayer only or is there a single player mode?

I'm playing it with an x1050. I thought I would need a new video card to have good frame rates. I have the res at 800x600 though.

Bah, using an ancient 9700, I was able to play EP1 in 1152x860 with 16xAF, full HDR, and all texture settings at high, and still get 30FPS! I couldn't possibly see how you would need to run in 800x600 using an x1050...

This is a sig of some nature.

With the x1050 I only get about 30-40fps(avg) at 800x600 with full HDR and no AF or AA. I'm going to get a better card soon though.

Its probably due to the fact that the x1050 is a integrated video card that employs shared memory, has only 4 pixel pipe lines, and a 64-bit memory interface. Where as your card is the mid-high end card for your generation, featuring a nice little allotment of dedicated video memory, 8 pixel pipe lines, and a 256-bit memory interface. Though his card has the x1Gen to your 9Gen its the number in the hundreds spot you need to pay attention too for that will designate mid to high eg: 500-900 or low to integrated eg: 400-000. The game hovers between the low sixties to fifties on my Mobility Radeon 9700 at 1024x768 provided I turn shadows and shaders down to low to accommodate my 4 pixel pipe.
