    Bad fps(friends PC)

    probably just background program clutter. do the usual, start/run "msconfig" uncheck all the programs he dosen't need to be running all the time. run a spyware program like "adaware". run a virus scan. defrag. that usualy does it. why is 170FPS a problem? although I can see that an 80FPS...

    Fear 2 Demo Out

    Plays great for me except for stuttering every now and then. Not sure why it does that. Demo is VERY short though, took me about 10-15 minutes, but graphics are great IMO and the atmostphere is amazing, very scary. Wear headphones for maximum effect :)

    Q6600@stock bottlenecking 4870?

    Overclock it then and quit bitching about having "only" 200 fps, it's rediculous. Total waste of a thread. Why not come on here and start a thread about overclocking your quad or advice on how to improve your system instead of sounding like a spoilt child who says f**k every other word.

    benchmarked my new 4870 against my old 8800gt and as my feelings told me it was worse

    Nah theres something wrong with it. My 4850 gets 12880 with my q6600 @ 2.7Mhz and graphics @ 700 & 1010. Only small overclocks as you can see, so you should be getting alot more than me.

    All Time Favorite Game

    Uninstalls fine for me when I have to update it to next version. Great reason to hate a game cos it's "gay" lol. America's Army for me too. Great game, but a very steep learning curve, and thats why some people thinks it's "gay", because it's too hard for them ooo errr.

    when its playing a movie and only 1 core is running at about 5%, does it really use that much electricity? i thought it only uses alot of electricity when you put it under load. if you underclock it wont it just make the cpu work harder thus using the same amount of electricity. i don't know...

    ps3 worth the purchase?

    I've always loved playstations, but this year for my son (and me) I had a choice ps3 £300 or xbox £129. Guess what won. Sorry but they are over twice as expensive and do not offer twice the benefit of an xbox unless you want blueray that bad (i don't), and until they come down in price alot...

    GTA IV Performance

    I literally LOLLED at that one. BTW I dunno why but it runs fine at maxed out settings for me, the only problem is I cannot increase draw distance above 60 as it says my video card memory is not enough. But as I'm getting 40 FPS on average, I can't see a problem with increasing that a bit...

    Winxp 32-BSOD stop codes.

    You'll get alot of help here, but post more details for people. e.g. the error code, why do you think it's happening, have you overclocked, recently installed hardware/drivers? etc etc or just type the error code in google

    3dm06 kidding me?

    check your Anti aliasing filter is "box" not edge detect & adaptive aa is performance and off. then change to standard settings, for some reason when i change to balanced it still leaves those options on for me so i have to change them, THEN change to balanced.
