Played a little Madden last night, Terry crushed me again. At least I was winning 3-0 before the massacre started!

I meant to d'load the Tiger demo last night, but forgot all about it. I hear it's pretty good!

Need to get some school supplies for Nat tonight, as she has orientation tomorrow evening and the teachers would like their students to bring everything they need. She is so excited!

What's up with you?

What up!

QOTD - my PC is 5 years old at least, 2 GHZ, Pentium 4 with 1 gig of RAM. Still works great, does everything I need on it. I hate PC gaming, so for every other application, I'm great.

I had a laptop that is now with Best Buy, been dead over a month now, used that more than anything.

Been upgrading for awhile, here is what I got.

Athlon 5800+ Dual Core
ASUS MSN32SLI Deluxe MB
2G Ram
Geforce 8800 GTS 640 MB
Soundblaster X-FI
Antec 900 Gaming Case
Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard
Logitech G5 Mouse
Viewsonic 28" Monitor
Samsung 215TW Monitor

Decent system and can run all games at high settings. Did do some testing on XP vs. Vista. Ran the FEAR test on highest settings.
VISTA - Avg Frame 36
XP - Avg Frame 90

So the drivers for Vista are way behind XP at the moment.

Bioshock does run fine though on Vista with no slowdown so maybe the Direct 10 drivers are okay.

Nice rig Shon! Nice monitor too!

EG, you still haven't received your laptop from Best Buy? That is just crazy!

Nope, I got the parts, and it still didn't work. So I went to tier 2, which is them sending it off to Best Buy Geek Squad head quarters I guess, that was last week. I should have it back within 2 more weeks...I'm doubting it and expecting to get a gift card for the full amount of my lappy so I can buy a new one. I think it was fried.

re: NBA uniforms-I have a black Chris Mills jersey from back in the Cavs powder blue days. Man, that thing is ugly.

Downloaded Tiger last night, mainly b/c Steve mentioned it was available yesterday. It's pretty fun. I'm thinking about getting my first golf game since European PGA Tour on the Genesis (though I might get Tiger 06 or 07 since I hear they're pretty much the same game).

QOTD: Don't use my machines for gaming at all except a little High Heat 2004.

Emachine with 512mb, 3 gHz, 80 GB hard drive, and crappy video card.

Presario laptop with 512mb, 2 ghz, 80 GB hard drive, and Radeon x200 card.

QOTD: My computer does what I need it to...play all my games (save 'Flight Simulator X') at the highest detail.

3.0GHz dual core
1.5 GB RAM
Radeon X1300 256MB Graphics Card
17" widescreen monitor

Now the specs for 'Spore' might force an upgrade, as that is pretty much the only PC game in the pipeline that I'm interested in.

QOTD: I built my last 2 PC's but I pretty much gave up on PC gaming once the 360 arrived. So I haven't upgraded like I used to.
My main PC now has an Athon 2400+, 512MB RAM and 6600GT video card. I still have a few older PC games that I'm slowly working through, like Far Cry and Max Payne 2, and they run fine.

19" widescreen monitor
I built this PC like 3 years ago

Thanks, been spending too much money lately. Don't know what came over me to upgrade my PC but when the urge hits I can't stop it.
