    Hey man join my PC Gaming group, I'm trying to get more pc gaming buddies lol. Anyway, Rage looks like it's going to be really good. If you havn't heard about it, it's being developed by Id the same people who make Doom and Quake, but it won't be out until next month. Also, Skyrim is coming out in November and that looks really good too. How is the Desus Ex game btw? I played the first two.
    Rage http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFE66chCZuA
    Skyrim http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjqsYzBrP-M
    Plus Prey 2 is coming out soon and that looks good too.

    What specs are you running just curious. IMO there hasn't been a real good PC game since Unreal Tournament 3, well portal 2 looks cool, but PC gaming has hit a rough patch the last few years, thanks to develop companies targeting teenagers who play xbox. I love PC gaming and all the advantages it has and that's why I like Id Software, Bethesda and Valve so much, because they care about their PC audience and give them mod tools, rather then being like Gearbox and 2K and not caring about their fans at all and not giving them any mod tools.

    actually the 6770, not 6700

  8. my one problem is now that i have a comp that can handle running the games. Not all of the older ones that i wanted to play seem to be able to run on it A big boo to EA on that count

    Running an SSD or a mechanical? My data transfer rate is bringing down my entire system because I have a mechanical drive.

  10. I am completely blanking on the game, maybe you guys know it off hand. It is a PC release, Typical Space Marine vs Evil Alien Race ala Halo. I think they were call Snogs or something to that effect. About half way through the game you get captured and turned into one of them. Can not for the life of me remember what it was called

  11. 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

    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

  17. 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!!

    nice lol. I can't stand stock model PC, they're all a bunch of under powered pieces of junk lol.

  20. 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.

  23. each their own i guess. Personally i hate driving games.

  24. 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!

  25. wow that game looks amazing!!

    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!

  27. Derick called it, it was Quake 4.
