  1. And a really old myspace account that hasn't been logged into for 1 1/2 years? http://www.myspace.com/cpjohnny85
  2. Is this your band OP? http://www.myspace.com/batonfire
  3. If you can't handle rated R movies, I suggest a similar, yet more tame option called PG13.
  4. That was a few years ago wasnt it? The guns were collectors pieces, very valuable. After he turned them into the cops, the cops probably sold them.
  5. Then there was the one about the guy who bought a secondhand amp and found four WWII handguns hidden in a false bottom Yeah I remember that, wonder if he ended up selling them.
  6. So the tubes were glowing hot and the thing fell to the floor and it still works? I knew Peavey amps were durable, but that's amazing! Yep, happened mid song. Pretty crazy.
  7. Yes, the native resolution of the new monitor is 1440x900. The only reason I was leaning toward that power supply is the fact that it has no switch, so I won't have to dremel or drill any holes in the back of my computer to make it fit. I would like to go the 600w route but have yet to find any that I know would fit and don't have a switch. Usually there are tabs you can fold back to make a power supply fit. Hell you could even get a new computer case and power supply for the price of the one you are looking at. This is a non-issue, trust me.
  8. Any help you guys can shed my way would be greatly appreciated? Sounds like you switched to a higher resolution when you got the new monitor. This will make the graphis card work harder, and in some cases MUCH harder. If you didn't change the resolution the game was running at I don't know what it could be. That power supply is extremely over priced by the way, go to newegg and get a basic 600w one.
  9. One more thing about the RAM, your motherboard if it is an older kind most big computer makers will even split 512MB into two sticks. Might just have two memory slots instead of four too. So you may have to buy a brand new pair.
  10. Crysis also eats computers for breakfast. What detail and resolution are you running it at? I agree that he needs at least 1.5 gigs of RAM to run these games well, but he should be able to run them at least at 800x600 with medium detail and still get 30 fps. Hell, my AMD 64 3.0 with 1.5 gigs of RAM, a 6600GT can run Half Life 2 and the Orange Box games at high resolutions fine. Bioshock works fine and FEAR was smooth as well. The newer ones have made mine stutter, but a 8600GT would help with that. I run everything at 1680x1050 graphics maxed. Running any game at 800x600 would make it look like Atari.
  11. You can actually build a nice gaming computer for $400-500 if you really wanted to, assuming you're keeping your monitor/hard drive/DVD-rom/mouse/keyboard. Truth. New motherboard, new RAM, new CPU, new video card. Presto, your computer can not only do everything, but it can do it well.
  12. No, the computer he has is fine, he just needs more RAM and not a shared video device. The Vaio he has has no video card. Once he gets that into his PCI-E 16 slot and adds a gig or 2 of RAM he will be pretty well off. But I will still say that if Anti really wants to run the newest games in all their glory he would need a top of the line video card, 2 gigs of RAM, and probobly a faster CPU, but he will still be able to run these games just fine with his 3.0 ghz, 1.5 gigs of RAM, and a 8600GT. I can run Crysis at only 30 fps and I have a Core 2 Duo 2.66Ghz, 2GB of Patriot extreme RAM, and an 8800GTS 640MB. I doubt his computer would be able to run it on any playable level. Call of Duty 4 uses over 1GB of RAM to run. F.E.A.R. needs almost a GB too...
  13. Is this the same card? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8390163&st=geforce+8600+GT&lp=1&type=product&cp=1&id=1179876485511 It says 8600 GT as well... No, that is a completely different card in about four different ways. Dude... Its time for you to do lots of reading. You are going to be building a new computer soon. Do not waste money upgrading a computer with inferior EVERYTHING. You can build a nice gaming computer for $700, Core 2 Duo 3.0Ghz, 2GB gaming RAM, Nvidia 8 series card, the whole deal.
