    Great job Winners! and Thank you manofthem for having the time to pull this one last Shibang off! :laugh: :toast: :rockout:

    My nephew plays Metro 2033 on a dual core with a MSI 3850. It's a pci-e version, but your agp should still be able to play it on very low. I picked that 3850 up at the egg for $59 3 years back and it's still playing strong today. :toast: A new card would be nice. I've got a spare gaming rig with a GTX285 and it plays it great. The egg has GTX280's on sale for around 80 bucks. :toast: They have a couple of 460's for 99ea as well. :toast:

    If only I was on that machine! The Q6600/AGP in specs is actually now retired. I'm on the other machine, the dual Xeons. With only a 128MB FireGL v3400 (upgraded from the v3350 shown there). I guess I need to update system specs! :pimp:

    Aww I see.. :toast: and I feel your pain about the wife not letting you buy games.. :roll: So now when I buy a game I tell her, "Guess what you did today?... You bought me a game.. hehehe". She doesn't think it's funny, but I laugh every time.. lol Of course I only buy games on sale until Doom 4 comes out and then that's a day one purchase for me and probably Crysis 3. :toast:

    Had a slow start to my dl, finally averaged 1MB/s, 7.6gbs... but I have to admit, kind of like Armageddon! Very good 1st person shooter.

    Thanks to all of you guys and your support throughout the giveaways; it's really awesome to see that they are appreciated and even more awesome to see so many share in the giveaway spirit!

    It looks like Red Faction: Guerrilla is still available! If anyone (who meets initial requirements) wants it, it theirs so post below. Everyone else has been sent their games :) All were quick to claim this round which was really nice.

    And if you have Metro 2033 yet, no excuses; we have several extra keys :roll:

    After RF:G is gone, I'll ask the mods to close this thread. I'll be sad to see it go but we must make room for the other threads ;)

    Sounds good, PM incoming.




    So that's it everyone, all games claimed! We had a nice round, some good fun, and we all got to share in some good-old-fashion-togetherness ;)

    Thanks to all and we will see you next time :toast: :toast:
