Set Devil May Cry 4 screen resolution at 1440×900, 1680×1050, 1920×1200, 2560×1600

Do you run Devil May Cry 4 at 1280×1024 resolution? And you cannot set the resolution higher than 1280×1024. I want to run Devil May Cry 4 at resolutions like 1440×900, 1680×1050, 1920×1200, 2560×1600. However, the PC Settings in Devil May Cry 4 do not allow me to do so. I am using 22″ Samsung T220 LCD monitor which have 1680×1050 native resolution. All 3D games like Devil May Cry 4 run best in native resolution. What should I do?

Cooler Master Real Power M620 Preview

Cooler Master Real Power M620? Why not Cooler Master Silent Pro M600 or SilverStone SST-ST60F which selected in the first place? Hehe… I cannot find both of them in Penang. My ‘supplier’ could not find them for me. Therefore, I had to buy Cooler Master Real Power M620 by myself from PC Depot.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB Hard Drive and Lite-On LH-18A1P DVD-RW Drive

Continued from Ready to setup my new computer system?

Hehe… I missed out one of the important stuff in my new computer system ~ the hard drive. Without hard drive, how am I going to play my precious games? Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB will be my new hard drive. I don’t care much about hard drive because it is the bottom neck of the whole system. Hard drive is the slowest of all. Therefore, a new technology like solid-state drive (SSD) comes out to replace hard drive. The speed is faster and requires less power. However, it is still very expensive at the moment. Therefore, I still stuck to normal hard drive.

Nvidia and ATI AMD produce good quality 3D graphics processing unit (GPU). Which display card should I choose? I plan to have a 22″ LCD monitor. I need a display card that can power 1680 x 1050 px at playable games speed. Both Nvidia and AMD have multi GPU functionality which is SLI for Nvidia and CF for AMD. However, you can’t find much SLI motherboard in the market because only Nvidia chipset and certain Intel chipset like x38 and x48 support SLI. Therefore, CF is my only choice for the moment.
