441  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / minimum power for 6600GT on: June 17, 2005, 11:32:09 AM
also, is upgrading my power supply as easy as putting a new one in and plugging it into everything in my rig?  Or is there a limit as to how much power my rig can handle?  I don't know all that much here, so any help is appreciated.
442  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / minimum power for 6600GT on: June 15, 2005, 11:21:17 PM
sorry i have been too busy working to log on for any longer than like 2 minutes.

my pc is a bit outdated.

P4 2.0
20 gig seagate hd
4400ti G4
300W power supply
Windows XP Home

i want to update to the max processor my crappy mobo will allow (2.8 i believe), and i am thinking that my power supply will not be enough to upgrade to a 6600GT.  i don't really want to get a new computer for at least another year if i can avoid it.

thanks for your help.
443  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / minimum power for 6600GT on: June 12, 2005, 04:23:24 PM
what is the least amount of power supply you should have available to be running a 6600GT?
444  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / why is Call of Duty still like $30? on: June 10, 2005, 09:57:01 AM
i actually have found it on sale at bestbuy.com, 29.99 for both the game and expansion, + free shipping.  i haven't ordered yet.  someone sent me an email offering theirs for a reduced fee but i accidentally deleted it.
445  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / why is Call of Duty still like $30? on: June 08, 2005, 12:59:14 PM
I'm looking for this game on the cheap, and figured that it wouldn't be a problem since it came out in October of 2003!!

How long does a game have to be out for it to drop significantly in price?
Anybody see this anywhere for $20 or less?

LOL.  Fafhrd, i hope you weren't insulted by my post, as i meant no offense.  I just figured you didn't come around anymore, and wanted to prepare someone that you might not get back to them.  
I'm hoping that operation flashpoint won't have a virus attatched now  smile

good luck with getting thru to fafhrd, Aussie.  i asked him for some game about a month ago and never got a response.  i don't think he comes around here too often.
448  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / pentium vs. amd on: June 06, 2005, 05:21:01 AM
sorry, i know this has been asked a million times, but i had to ask.

As far as gaming goes, is the AMD really that much superior, if at all, to the pentium processor?  

And what is a comparable AMD processor to say...a pentium 3.4?

i still play, but not the sheriff mod because there just aren't enough servers running it.

i'm highly offended.




just kidding.  I feel your pain of working overnight.
451  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Freaking loving SWAT 4?! on: May 03, 2005, 12:29:20 PM
that was fun playing co-op, DB.  but then i got booted and when i went back in, nobody was there.  anyway, i'm trying to get out today to get a headset so we'll have to set up another "playdate".  smile
452  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Freaking loving SWAT 4?! on: May 02, 2005, 05:49:36 PM
when will you guys be playing again?
453  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Freaking loving SWAT 4?! on: April 30, 2005, 12:13:02 AM
yeah, but if you let it play out, or click on "skip intro", you will enter the main site.

did anyone DL this yet?  i'm curious if it will screw me up when i go to play multiplayer.
454  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Freaking loving SWAT 4?! on: April 29, 2005, 01:47:55 AM
the only thing that irks me about the game is that the use of force measurement is all f'd up.  i mean, if i command a suspect to drop his shotgun and he continues to walk towards me and disregards my command, than that gives me probable cause or authority to use deadly force.  but in this game, if i do just that, i get penalized.  it's like they expect you to wait until they shoot at you first, which is total BS.
455  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Freaking loving SWAT 4?! on: April 27, 2005, 12:43:22 AM
i plan on buying it very soon, pretty much hoping to find it on sale for $39.99.  i'll let you know when i do.

Update:  I've found it at Best Buy for 39 bucks, and will be buying it tomorrow barring any catastrophe

yes, that was great timing for a new update.

Fafhrd:

can i get operation flashpoint from you?  i would really appreciate it.
458  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / overclocking processor on: April 18, 2005, 12:19:39 AM
does anyone know how to go about OC'ing a pentium processor?  i think my motherboard has pre-sets on doing it, but i'm not exactly sure what is what when i open up the BIOS.  i have the D845GBV chipset.
459  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / The GT Pay It Foward Freebies Thread *closing end of 2005* on: April 13, 2005, 05:10:55 PM
Ragnarok,

Do you think you could send me Black and White?  I never played it and i'm curious as to how it is.
460  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / what's the difference? on: April 09, 2005, 01:36:26 AM
i was just looking around gogamer, when i noticed that they sell some games in multiple versions, one "normal" or one import (in english).  If the import game is in english, what's the difference?
461  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / fan on video card not working on: April 03, 2005, 03:14:01 PM
yeah i'll take a look around.  fortunately my rig runs cool, about 30C or 85F.  i still don't like the idea of my VC without a fan though.
462  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / fan on video card not working on: April 03, 2005, 11:02:02 AM
i have a 4400ti.  where did you get that fan from?  it's been running fine without the fan, but i would like this computer to get more time in before i get a new one.  i don't want to buy a new video card yet because my next computer will probably be pci-express, instead of AGP.
463  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / fan on video card not working on: April 02, 2005, 08:35:49 PM
after conducting an inspection of my pc i have come to notice that my video card fan is not working.  what are my options at this point?  I'm due for a new card anyway, but i'd like to know what i can do for this situation besides automatically replacing the whole card.  the card seems to be running fine otherwise.  any help is appreciated.
464  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / looking to upgrade my VC on: March 26, 2005, 04:31:33 AM
i'm looking to upgrade my G4 4400ti to something that has some more balls to it but for not a whole lot of money.  i have been looking at some options but thought maybe one of you guys had an extra one you'd be willing to sell for a reasonable price?  i prefer nvidia but i actually never tried ati so i can't really say i definitely don't want that.

anybody having a problem with this game?  everytime i either shoot down or go to investigate a landed UFO my game basically crashes to the desktop.  i had to run the utility with that fodder or whatever the hell mod it was called to unscramble my graphics.  any info?

Both for excellent PIFFage
467  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / time to upgrade? on: March 14, 2005, 12:27:47 PM
ok, thanks for the info.  i really appreciate it.  i do have one other question though.

will my machine be able to take advantage of all that the 6600GT has to offer?

my specs are:
2.0 pentium 4
1 gig ddr ram
win XP
did i forget to include anything?
468  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / time to upgrade? on: March 12, 2005, 09:49:03 AM
ok i have an nvidia geforce 4 4400ti video card, and am wondering what would be a solid upgrade for not a substantial amount of money (less than $200)

and before everyone gets crazy and starts with the "just save up your money and get the $500 card", keep in mind i pay over $2000 a month for my house, so it's just out of the question.

that article about the new geforce 6200 that'll cost around $80 had me thinking, so that's why i'm asking.

any positive feedback is appreciated.  thanks people

471  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / The GT Pay It Foward Freebies Thread *closing end of 2005* on: March 07, 2005, 08:59:32 PM
affirmative on the divine divinity.  just pm me your adress and i'll send it out tomorrow after work.  later.

i'd like to add a few older games to the list as well.  
Sea Dogs (paper sleeve only)
soldier of fortune (paper sleeve only)
max payne (dvd case only)

should put me @ a +8
472  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / The GT Pay It Foward Freebies Thread *closing end of 2005* on: March 04, 2005, 05:58:58 PM
ok i sent out jedi knight and deus ex first class cuz it was only like 40 cents more for each.  i'd imagine you'll get them after the weekend.  enjoy.

since i claimed dibs on vampire bloodlines, if i'm not mistaken, that puts my karma at +5?
473  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / The GT Pay It Foward Freebies Thread *closing end of 2005* on: March 03, 2005, 06:26:39 PM
cool, and actually, i would love vampires bloodlines
474  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / The GT Pay It Foward Freebies Thread *closing end of 2005* on: March 03, 2005, 05:28:48 PM
hi guys.  totally new to the piff thing.  used to trade a little on GG, but haven't here yet.  here's what i'm offering for the PC:

Deus Ex: IW (box and booklet)
Star Wars: Jedi Knight Dark Forces 2 (JC, never opened)
Desperados (JC only)
Mafia (JC only)
Divine Divinity (box and booklet)
MVP 2004 (box, installation booklet)

that's it for now.  not sure what i'm looking for yet.  i just figured for now someone else can enjoy these games cuz i'm not playing them anymore.
BTW, how does everyone ship their games?  media mail, or like a 2 day thing?
also, i probably only will check back here once a day so don't get upset if i don't respond right away.  thanks

i would've been interested in mercenaries, but unfortunately i already have that.  i appreciate the response and offer, but i either have those other games or am not really interested.  thanks again.
476  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / F/T GTA San Andreas PS2 *cancelled* on: February 16, 2005, 09:53:28 PM
looking to move this excellent game.  it's in mint shape.  not fully sure what i'm looking for in return.  something fairly new for PS2 or PC.  if anyone is interested drop me an email.  I used to trade on GG and had something like a +6 or something.
