haha, i live in victoria too, remember me? anyways, i doubt we'll get it august 3rd because we're in canada.

august 3 in the US, later worldwide. the guys at electronics boutique said between august 3 and 5th. i have mine pre-ordered.

what kind of card are you getting favelle? i just got a 9800pro today, along with a new power supply, and hopefully ill get my 2.2 athalon before it comes out

and about the 4 person multiplayer, thats just with what the game ships with. mod makers and what-not will be able to have more, like 8 or 16 probably. im not worried about multiplayer much for doom, i think half-life 2 will have better multiplayer, i just want doom for single player, which i heard takes about 20-25 hours to beat.

ill play with you anytime, i actually have a couple people from other forums (bands,computers etc..) who wanna play

Radeon x800. I still may get a 9800pro though, if I can be guaranteed to get the r360 core. Check yours. Its under the heat sink. 'Cause if you do, you'll be able to EASILY overclock it to a Radeon 9800XT!!! And that's a $699 card!!!

If you're getting an Athlon, get the Mobile 2500XP. It can be EASILY overclocked to 3200XP status, and that's a $300 chip. That would be insane!

Yeah, they'll hack multiplayer, for sure. Quake 4 will be the big multiplayer game from Id Software.

HL2 "might" be out by 2010, if we're lucky, LOL!!

I'll see you on the battlefield bro!

I went to this EB Games they let me reserve half life 2, i asked the guy when it will be released and he said something like mid october, but there is a great possibility that it will be put back AGAIN!!

man favelle, you really know your computer stuff too hey? i don't really, but my brother is good with all that. i don't think getting an X800 is really worth it right now, atleast for me it isnt, the next card i get is going to be a 512mb one, supposedly you need a video card with 512mb to run doom 3 perfect, there's an ''ultra mode'' box or something thats filled in right now until better stuff comes out

what are all your guys' specs like?

AMD Athalon XP 1900+ (hopefully getting a 3000+ soon)
ATI Radeon 9800pro
512mb Corsair 3200
8 gigs free HD space

and about half-life 2, i guess it will be out in late september/early october. they can't keep delaying it or noone will wanna buy it anymore

I'm hoping it will run decent on my current hardware. I've pretty much stopped playing games on the PC. Burned out on crappy titles and high prices over the years. It's the irony of the job.

Lucky for me most of the titles I want to play in the future will be coming out on Xbox or PS3 Sudeki, Fable, Jak and Daxter sequels, etc. etc.

Pentium 4 2.4GHz HT
1 gig DDR 400 RAM (dual channel config)
Radeon 9700
120 gig drive
Case is a Shuttle XP mini-system with an FB61 mainboard (8x AGP, 800 mhz bus)

Derrick, have you benchmarked that Corsair RAM against generic stuff? I was looking at a hardcore RAM test on Slashdot the other day, and the Corsair stuff kicked major butt

If I wasn't relegating my computers to purely surfing or work stuff I'd be slapping that in along with an X800

If anyone was thinking about grabbing a PCI express mainboard and video card to really go nuts it had no effect on Doom whatsoever. Hope it's not overhyped technology.

NO no, Doom 3 requires 512 of RAM, not video card RAM. Huge difference Duggan.

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:

my system specs:

amd 64 3200+ GHz
1Gb ram (pc3200)
ati radeon 9800xt
Creative Audigy 2 ZS 5.1
etc.

I think i'll be ok for doom and halflife...

Has anyone seen the screenshots of the upcoming unreal engine? Looks like an upgrade might be in order then.
