that looks awsome! I still play doom 2, even play wolfenstein. classics!

just curious will this run it? Its from that "AIDA32 Enterprise System Info." thing, i really have no idea what it means.

CPU: AMD Athlon XP, 2079 mhz (6.25x333) 2600+
Motherboard Chipset: nVIDIA nForce 2
Video Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce4 MX Intergrated GPU (64 mb)---think i need better, this one bites for crappy games

should it run it? i am thinking a 128 video card, but thats about all i know about it...bigger numbers gotta be better, right?

Your video card will NOT run the game. Get a new video card (Radeon 9800pro or 9600XT) and the game will FLY!

What RAM you got bro?

The next gen of cards is going to be PCI express, but that's a year off, and I'd wait to run the two cards in RAID style (2 video cards processing at the SAME time, woo - hoo!!). But PC Gamer ran a test on 4 different systems and all the stuff made no difference. For the first time in a LONG time, the CPU is now the bottleneck of your system.

The best buy right now is an MSI Radeon 9800pro and then overclock it to a 9800XT. Only problem is, Doom 3 uses OpenGL, which Radeon cards SUCK for, but nVidia cards rule at. But I can't support anything but ATI, so if I take a 5 fps hit, then so be it.

Derrick, that system ROCKS!! Do you game man? You, me, Duggan, August 3rd at midnight! LOL!!!

Duggan, get the AMD 2500XP mobile, and overclock it to a 3200XP. Its now $140 at www.ncix.com. BEST value for our buck man! But you'll need at least PC3200 RAM, which you have, so you're set!!

Here's how to overclock it:

http://inquirerinside.com/?article=14245
thanks man, ill look into that further for sure

and about the 512mb video card, i was right you just didn't understand what i was saying. doom supposedly has a setting ''ultra'' or something for the graphics probably sets all the effects extremely high, which is shaded out right now in the game because no video cards right now can handle it. and supposedly you need a 512mb VIDEO CARD to run doom at that ultra or highest settings.

none of this is fact to me yet, but i've heard it from numerous sources.

also that XP mobile, im not sure if my motherboard can run anything other than athalon thunderbird

You're crazy man. That's a female het albino Ball dude. Even Mandic would say you're a foooool!

But how will the gay-force hold up to the DIRECT-X9 of Half Life 2 (when it comes out in 5 years)??

by then I'll be running two geforce 6800 ultra's in pci-e
Oh yeah, I just found a cheapier price for that card..... $749, I think I'll be ordering that tomorrow morning heh

Also could be me but I believe that the geforce was developed with directx9 with microsoft.... also ask all those people out there about ATCry's and how good far cry runs

Dude, if you're going to go gay-force, just get the 6800GT man. You're crazy.

And if you sell that female Pastel to fund your insane video card purchase, I'm going to put the beat-down on you.

when did you guys start buying stock in ATI?

"if it's fast and it works, who cares if it says Pinto on it"

GT's are going for $660 so if you can get an Ultra for $749 so that's not that big of a difference and also if you spending that king of money anyways then go with the best.

We'll see once the fragging begins!

Ultras just went down again bro. I'm reading the review on the 6800GT. I might have to betray my country (ATI) and get one:

Duggan, it looks like we gotta get the Geforce 6800GT. Within a month, it'll be down to an even $600.

Dammit. But it'll be worth it to gang up on Ian on August 3rd.

I guess this is it. Also, overclockable to 6800-Ultra levels (with extra cooling, of course).

Ahhhh the future........
