Productivty, gaming and pron all at the same time......hmmm......
Actually it's productivity, gaming, pron, and pron. Four cores, mucat.
My final rig specs are this I'm waiting for my mobo to come on monday.
Antec TruePower Trio 650W
OCZ 4x1GB DDR2 800 PC6400 RAM S.O.E
BFG Tech 8800GTS 320 MB in SLI
Maxtor 300GB 7200rpm 16MB cache
Intel Q6600 2.4GHz 8MB cache
BFG Tech 680i SLI
And a million aftermarket fans including ZALMAN 9700 Silver for the CPU
I cashed out bigtime for this one.
Ha, I left one of the core for drivers and other background stuffs.
What monitor you got?
What the heck is a RIG?
If you dont know what a rig is youre not a PC gamer. (FYI its another name for the whole machine)
I am not a PC gamer. I do have Simcity4 installed on my machine but it's been many months since I've played it. Oh I also got Halo and some other little games including snes emulators on which I play Tetris Attack(awesome puzzle game, blows away the original tetris).
Still, after all that I don't think I'm a PC gamer. Computers are expensive, so I don't want to deal with a rig.
Hey did anyone hear that Micro$oft has extended the warranty of the 360 to 3 years? They'll even reimburse you for past repair costs.
However, the new warranty only applies if your 360 has gotten the 3 red lights of doom. I think that's so lame because the 360 has many, many other problems that aren't indicated by the 3 red lites.
Finished it up last night/today.
Thanks for sharing with us.
that one little hard drive looks lonely
Currently playing Castlevania: Prince of Darkness, and it's taking up a lot of my time from writing which is what I'm suppose to be doing, but hey, it's fun. Still haven't finished FFXII yet, I lost interest...had enjoyed watching Fran run around enough. Tried the new Naruto last week, and it was only OK, the same with the new Hack.sign. Went right back to Castlevania. My 'new' favourite series I intend to go back and play.
Halo PC: Combat Evolved
So whose seen the Halo 3 E3 vid? Anybody here visit the bungie.net boards? I can't wait. Assasin's Creed also looks amazing.
Warcraft 3: TFT on USEast or was it West?
Topspin 2 (PC) - 3-0 record with Henman hehehe
Haha it doesn't stand up to your 1TB
I'm at 2.4 right now, I'll have a little over 4 by the time I go back to school
Speaking of games, I can hardly wait for Assassin's Creed to come out. That, and my R4 for my DS which hasn't come yet.
hey i was wondering, is topspin 2 on pc free??? cuz im looking for tennis games. Any ideas? Also how long would it take for halo 3 to hit pc?
Why would it be free? Do you mean free to play online? Anyway since Halo 3 isn't coming out until Sept 25, it's going to be a long time coming until the PC version. At least another 6 months after that.
I agree that Assasin's Creed looks absolutely amazing.
hmmm. im gonna download both fear combat and america's army. they both are gonna take 17hrs each.
Sorry to dig up an old thread, but:
I beat god of war on spartan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I started the last few boss fights at 1:00am and I died so many times that it was 4:00 am when I finished. 3 fights took me 3 hours to beat.
I spiked my ps2 controller and probably woke everyone in the house up, but I don't care! It was certainly my best accomplishment in quite some time.
Congratulations, and no need to apologize for booting the Gamers Lounge back up, that what it's here for. Now if you start bumping two year old "Federer has a new racquet" threads, I might have to hurt you.
I can't wait for halo 3. I want a xbox 360 just for that game.
I saw the online co-op...that looks really really awesome! It looked like you could get 4-5 guys and be a whole squad.
Assassins Creed Looks Killlllll.
I'm addicted to Oblivion and Guild Wars these days.... In fact it's been 1 full year sincei started playing GW
My last game was the darkness, my next is Two Worlds, followed by Halo 3 and Assassins Creed.
GTA 4 was just announced to be pushed back about 6 months...
2nd trailer released though.
I haven't bought a new game since Oblivion last year. I have been using Game Tap, they are starting to get the occasional new games as they come out. They are suppose to have OverLord this Thursday, I thought I would check it out.
I've gone back to playing CS 1.5ee Won2 Lan with Podbots.
Recent changes to my PC including a sleeve kit, some extra 120mm fans, and other goodies after my trip to QuakeCon.
PS. Dire I got another HDD to add to my puny first one, haha. Only up to 600gb right now though
Not too shabby
Cables could be better, have you ever seen one of those "clean cable"/"clean case" threads? WOW.
(Big tip: cut a hole above your mother board in the tray, it allows for very neat cables )
Now playing Metroid Prime gamecube and SilentHunter 3 submarine simulator.
If anyone here is a fan of FPS's, I would highly recommend taking a look at the Orange Box. I've been playing Team Fortress 2 for the past few weeks, and it's a wonderfully refreshing game.
Have you try Stalker? Very underrated game.
Super Smash Bros. series, Devil May Cry series, God of War series
Super Smash Bros. series, Devil May Cry series, God of War series
Ah I'm glad someone mentioned Super Smash Bros. SSBM and Halo are in my opinion teh two greatest party games ever. I can't wait for the new super smash brothers.
Hey what site is the best for videogames? I always go to gamespot.com, that the best?
Anybody here play 2moons?
-Great free mmorpg game, although it's a grindfest, but when you play with friends it's entertaining.
Um gamespy and gamefaqs are good also. So is Ign.com.
Unfortunately, Super Smash Bros. is the only good game in the forseeable future to be released on Wii...and to think I could've bought a 360 instead...
Don't feel so bad. The 360 hardware are failing left and right. I just heard one of them took half a year to repair then the moment the poor guy got it back, it fails again.
I have the Nintendo Wii, currently just renting games and i've downloaded a few games from the virtual console.
I want to get Metroid Prime: Corruption, can anyone comment on this game?
Also I can't wait for Rockstar's Table Tennis to come out, I think it will be sweet with the Wii controller.
Anyone have any good games for the Wii they'd like to comment on?
I have Tiger Woods 07, and it's pretty fun once you get it figured out...
Twilight Princess is solid, but long and like most Zelda games, takes a while to get into.
Resident Evil 4 is solid, but not my flavor of game.
EA going to buy BioWare
Ah crap, EA going to buy BioWare...RIP BioWare.
Anyone heard when HalfLife Episode 2 is coming out? How about GTA 4 for the PC?
