Im going to start downloading torrents but don't know what client (right word?) to use to download them. I found one site with a few torrents that i want but don't know what client is the best.

Also if you have any decent torrent site please post them or pm me them.

Azureus has been fine for me ive never really used anything else.

A torrent is a large file which can be downloaded by a 'link' provided by many sites. The small file is opened up into a 'client' where it can be downloaded. Similarly to file sharing you need people to host the file these people are called seeds and then there a leechers who download the file on the seeds. And then there is a share ratio thing which is important as it can affect speeds etc basically the ratio of upload/download.

i go straight to mininova or isohunt to download my torrents, there are useful forums around which document torrent releases specficially to the type of file e.g. movies, sports, television shows etc might chuck a few links later.

First things first never seed when you use a public site there is no point,But if your lucky enough to be a member of a private site like me :D then you have to seed thats why they are faster and more people want to join them as there is limited spaces available and everyone is sharing files...blaa if that didnt make sence ask Sean.

Yes, all sorts.

I use, isohunt.com and mininova.org and they are ok. but try get an invite from scenetorrents or torrentleech as they are invite only.

I have a program called Torrent Spider. It searches all the main public torrent sites and it's pretty useful. I'll find a link when I get home.

Torrents are illigal. I would advise u all not to talk about them on a forum. But if u must......I tried one once and it is REALLY slow, i was downloading san andreas.

My advice, just buy the game

I think they're only illegal if you download illegal content.
