Re: Facebook Friday - Gigabyte X58A-OC Motherboard

Excellent contest! I'd very much like this motherboard because I'm actually upgrading my computer now within the next few weeks (before battlefield 3 comes), which includes my Mobo, ram, cpu and graphics card. This would be the perfect addition to it.

Dim/Slow XP Loading Screen...

A while ago I started up my comp as usual, but it got to the xp loading screen, it was very dim and slowly coming into view, as if it was loading extremely slowly. I restarted the comp and it booted up fine. Today, it happened twice more.. so its not a 'fluke' anymore. It works when I restart the co...

Re: Minimum Assassin's Creed Specs Surpass Crysis

I can't believe a city would have higher requirements than a tropical island.. but anyhow, i'm sure it's poorly optimized. If it runs on PS3 fine how can it have so much trouble running on PC? It's gonna lose a lot of money, way more than crysis did, because of its reqs.. I have a brand new $1400 co...

Re: And they say video games has no effect on people..

Of course the game caused him to kill his daughter, but it didn't cause him to be violent in nature. So.. I guess it can go both ways. If he wasn't playing the game, she wouldn't have died at that moment. However, being violent in nature and based on his ridiculous motive, he would eventually be set...

yea.. that TV. is six-digit figures worth the entertainment.. in theory it hardly has any advantages over an 80 inch. with an 80 inch tv, your closer to it, and so it appears the same size.

Re: are u divx enabled.

negative... divx dvd players are relatively new (within the past couple years). a lot of people still have their dvd players from far before that, since they have a relatively long life expectancy. in addition, even today not all dvd players come with divx. if a grandma or someone who doesnt underst...

Re: Crysis Multiplayer?

well I've heard multiple thoughts on crysis MP now. I think it takes time to get used to.. people dont like the first 30 mins and altf4 It takes a couple hours, but after that its extremely fun. Also, people arent really taking it seriously yet.. mostly run and gun/observing pretty sights after a wh...

Re: Crysis Multiplayer?

Now where else have I seen this thread before..... :lol: Multiplayer wise I think Crysis has some potential but if it takes a whole heck of alot of bullets to make a kill like in the single player it might not unless you try for nothing but headshots. None the less games like COD4 and UT are more s...

Re: Crysis Multiplayer?

I haven't played any multiplayer, but I hear that it is lacking a Team Deathmatch mode. I imagine it would be fun as hell becasue EVERYONE has the special suit powers. It isn't a powerup that only one person gets and dominates! i dont see the big deal with team deathmatch.. wouldnt that be pretty s...

Re: Horrible gaming performance with 8800 ultra xt, need help pl

im pretty sure it might be a defective product.. 8800 ultra is the best gaming card there is. it should run on highest settings and high fps very easily. try returning it if it still has its warrenty if all else fails
