I got bored of the same ol' desktop and I thought that it needed some spice. I found a way to reskin the Windows GUI. I could've used the WindowBlinds program, but I had to pay for all the features. A better way I discover is through a patch. After patching, I went to find a theme that resembled Mac OSX. I went through a few of them and here's what I liked best.
I could've gone all the way and just done a complete overhaul of the GUI using FlyakiteOSX, but I didn't need some of the Mac functionality (e.g. Expose, using Dock as a taskbar, the menu bar). Along with a few other programs, I'm currently using a Windows-Mac "hybrid desktop." Do any of you with Windows run desktops with other themes?
Well the cards you want these days are PCI-E, and E is the important thing. You have to make sure your motherboard has a PCI-E slot on it first. Then you can get a cheap one that will work out fine to run games, just not at full resolution.
