    running in a window

    Can you resize these windows when playing cs source. I want to buy a huge 42" lcd but want to have a movie going, surf the net, and have cs source in the bottom corner.

    well... its wishful thinking, but if u play any game in a window it still takes up massive memory and cpu, hence u really cant do too much while playing a game

    If you get the best of the best of everything you might be able to do it -- 4 gigs ram, 1 gig video ram (can do that now right?) and the fastest dual core processor you can buy. Dual Cores are specifically designed for working with multiple applications open at the same time. It might work... but not that a 42" LCD would go to waste if it didn't :P

    But I believe you can play in windowed mode, though i've never done it.

    ^Wouldn't this be a classic case of where a dual-core would come out on top? I mean it seems a dual core was made for this kind of thing.

    You can run Source in a window, but watching a movie and playing will kill your frames.

    Hmmm...then would it be time to get a dual opteron server/desktop? Wow, the overkill potential near flattens me.

    not to mention a 42" is going to take insane resolution.

    but if you can afford that, quad SLI should be affordable too, and then you could do all that stuff at once.

    well i thinking about a westinghouse 42. it's under 2 grand and has 1920 x 1200 resolution which I think a 7950gx2 will handle no problem.

    I was going to go with this but might go with 2 19" setups then if no graphics card can handle a game and a movie



    I just wanted the 42 to be my screen with 3 apps running at the same time.

    can you resize the window? I know you can move it but have not been able to resize it.

    Only way to resize it is to run it at different resolutions I believe.
