You think THAT's a fan? You should see the Geforce 5700s. They look like someone strapped a lawn mower and mulcher on to the top of the card

God bless you people who fund all the research an development for computer hardware.

Meanwhile, I go by the rule of only upgrading to 2nd newest generation hardware when it's twice as fast as what I have. Right now, I'm running
Shuttle SN45G
AthlonXP 2500+ @3200
GeForce4 Ti4200 128MB
Which is great for Counter-Strike, the only game I play. However, I've had to give it up because if I play in pubs, I get banned and if I play in leagues/tournaments, it takes over my life. (Anyone going to Fragmart this year?)

I'm considering buying the Radeon 9800 Pro now... I've been waiting for it to drop a bit more in price, but I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon.

I heard someone mention FreeBSD and Linux? Of course, all my really sweet hardware is the in 2nd hand UNIX boxes I buy from eBay for a song:
2xSun Sparc5 (170MHz $30USD each)
2xSun Ultra5 (333MHz, 360MHz)
1xSun Netra T1 (360MHz $150CDN)
2xSGI Indigo2 (R4400 $15CDN, R10000)
1xDEC Alpha PWS 500au
1xHP Visualize C180 (Price circa 1997: $38,000USD. I paid $36CDN!!! God I love eBay)
tons of old x86 boxes
I run FreeBSD (-CURRENT and -STABLE), NetBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris9, Irix 6.5.22, HP-UX 11, Debian GNU/Linux, and Slackware GNU/Linux.

favelle i just got my 9800pro, can't get a 6800 now. my card should hold up fine anyways, online you have to put it down to 800x600 anyways, or atleast you should. it says i get 50fps with 1024x768 on medium settings no AA/AF, which is pretty good, since i never use AA/AF anyways.

i can't wait for this game

hhw, go here, this is the cheapest you will find the 9800pro, and this particular brand, MSI, is EASILY overclockable to 9800XT levels, which is still a $600 card.

Ha ha he said "lawn mower". Too funny.

hey favelle, i have an ATI radeon 9800pro, do you know anything about overclocking those ones? i don't know anything about over-clocking, or have the slightest idea how to it.

also the only fans i have are one big one on the motherboard, and another in the power supply. if i overclock my video card and processor, will i run a chance of overheating? also how do i set my computer to shut off if it gets at a high temperature at risk of overheating?

no no no no no. AMD MOBILE Athlon XP 2500. It overclocks to a 3200XP with EASE. Its really the only option for people still living in the 32-bit world.

Here's is the article why. Its a GOOD read:

Sure, in 2010 when it actually comes out. If they were dumb enough to leak the source code, how smart of a game can they actually make. It'll be fun, but probably no better than Far Cry.
