    Easy, that is about the same specs I am running. Want to say i upped it to 16g of RAM but it might only be 12g. 7200 rpm drive here. SSD would be great but that would have been really pricey

    Chipset: nvidia nforce 750i SLI SPP
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 @ 3000 Mhz

    You can't get Quake 4 to work you're saying? There has to be some patch or something to get it to work. I know the steam release version of the game works.

    mechanical, its a pair of Raid 1 7200 rpm drives. damn work machines and data security.

    had i built it for myself, it would have probably had a 32gb ssd for system, a 128gb ssd for programs, and a 7200 drive for data

    Before we got the desktop we were using an 06 dell laptop... you could barely run farmville on it.
    So we went a little overboard (Dell XPS Studio 8100 pretty much maxed out) mainly becuase my parents offered to chip in. Nothing like Grand Parent guilt So now we have a comp that my wife, baby, and I can skype with them, while probably running jsut about anything i can think of in the background

    I will have to do some more digging. I just googled if it would work with win 7 and most of the answers were no. I will look into the stream release though. thanks!!

    Ain't that the truth. and nothing that they reccomend (in terms of the options) is the default choice.

    If we were going to get one - it damn well be fully loaded. May that will buy an extra year or two before it is completely outdated

    I'm trying to get some my friends into PC gaming and my buddy told me "I like the controllers, I'm not a big fan of FPS." *sigh* I just shook my head lol.

    I wrote an article on this a long ways back. Effectively there are price points for components where thats the price range you should spend on those components. Performance vs price is always an exponential curve. there is a sweet spot, where 10% more $ gets you 10% more performance. But it rapidly reaches a point where it takes 100% more $ to make a 5% performance boost. When you put all the numbers together, you can buy a "sweet spot" pc every 18 months to 2 years, vs for the same total dollars buying the loaded model every 36-48 months for the same money. But the 2nd sweet spot pc outperforms the loaded PC. So overall at the earlier part of the cycle you have not too very different performance between the 2 pcs (as games aren't optimized for the new graphics chips, etc yet), but in the later part of the cycle you have better performance with the 2nd sweet spot pc. Comically, the $ amounts where the sweet spot happens hasn't changed in 20 years.

    Hey DerricVonD, (Or anyone for that matter)
    Not sure if you ever got into the StarWars games, as I only played Knights of the Old republic, but I stumbled across it from the Skyrim link you provided. This one looks rally impressive graphics wise, storyline not sure but if its anything close to KOTR its a keeper!

    On a side note, check out the judo throw at 1:24 SWEET!

    It's Battlezone 2, the alien race are called Scions, and you are captured BUT have the option to either stay with the humans, or join with the alien race. Unless there is another game with that story line, I am going with BZ II FTW!

    Dude I just moved from Hawaii to Texas and I've been without my PS3 since July. Stil waiting on our household goods. I wouldn't consider myself a hardcore gamer but I love me some COD. That and the fact that there isn't a damn thing to do in this small ass town, I'm missin' it pretty bad right now.

    I wonder if I'm the only one that ever played these games, but anyone remember the Might and Magic series? I still remember combinining MM4 (Clouds of Xeen) and MM5 (Darkside of Xeen) to make World of Xeen, which was a completely different game all together! Oh, I miss those days where everything was easy (I was somewhere around 10 years old)!
