    Has anyone had any success playing any Steam games on their Surface Pro, such as Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, CS:GO. I had trouble just trying to get the regular load menu to set up all my setting and find servers to fit the screen properly and then when I actually could get into a game it would look up and spin like crazy.. Has anyone had any luck trying to get theirs to work or maybe i'm the only one that's having this problem? Thanks for any help guys.

    It seams kind of odd there would be issues considering Surface Pro is just a PC in a tablet's body. Just a thought: The games you mentioned were all Valve games. Have you tried non-Valve games? For instance, games built on Source only seam to be able to install in the default directory (without workarounds). Maybe it is another oddity like that.

    I've played TF2 already and DoD Source and they played totally smoothly. This is with the settings on max and my max CPU settings at 99% (no turbo).

    Wacom styli tend to do that crazy spin if you try to use it in certain games. Mouse = win

    I've played SkyRim and Aliens Colonial Marines (patched) on my Pro (even installed on the MicroSD) and they all work great, albeit on low settings.

    I'm playing FootBall Manager 2013.... it's running very good on my SurfacePRO, the bad thing is, without the keyboard (with mouse pad) or one mouse, if you are using the touchscreen, you need to double tap to really click something, normally it's only once!

    Still waiting on Microsoft to upgrade to the NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE graphics card for even better gaming.
