    ASRock Innovates Socket 939 Motherboard with AMD 785G Chipset

    crap and i sold my 4GB worth of Mushkin Redline DDR500's four months ago! on the upside i still have my 165 that got up to 2.7GHz on my DFI NF4 SLI-DR Expert that died on me earlier this year. this just answered the call for the upcoming bedroom system! - Robert (PmR)DeathInJune

    Matrox Graphics Unveils Triple and Quad Monitor DisplayPort M-Series Graphics Cards

    yeah that was back in mid-late 2002. i considered it when my Creative GeForce2 Ultra died on me halfway through the RTCW SP but my trusty old Matrox G400 was laying around and it allowed myself to finish the game while i did my research before going with a GeForce4. technically the Parhelia...

    Statement by Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini on EC Ruling

    this is deserving: what cracks me up the most about all the "this is BS" people ranting off about this ruling and intel's position is the obvious. intel has been engaged in evil doing (anti-competitive practices) since the late 90's through to this day. it's pretty obvious that both the...

    TPU GPU review irregularities (question)

    well the point isn't the results of the 4850 but rather the cards that appear in both reviews running drastically slower in the review of Sapphire's HD 4850 512MB as compared to the previous review of the Zotac 8800 GTS 512MB. just trying to figure out why this occurred. ok i can see this...

    TPU GPU review irregularities (question)

    yes you are correct: Zotac 8800 GTS 512MB review uses: Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33 GHz (Conroe, 2x 2048 KB Cache) Sapphire HD 4850 512MB review uses: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.6 GHz (Wolfdale, 6144 KB Cache) assuming you were pointing to the CPU as the cause of this --> if the CPU involved...

    TPU GPU review irregularities (question)

    like many i come around to TPU for video card reviews more than anything else. W1zzard you are a walking god in my GPU modding book but i need an explanation to the following. below is your recent Sapphire HD 4850 review numbers vs. your Zotac 8800 GTS 512 numbers in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

    Microsoft Withdraws Proposal to Acquire Yahoo!

    note: <-- not an MS fanboy but rather a fanboy of Goliath, er, Google. i completely agree. oh how i look forward to Monday's stock numbers for Yahoo!. i side with Ballmer that Yahoo!'s hierarchy has done everything they could to make themselves undesirable while in the process acquiring...

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Club House

    forgot to mention that i modded it so that the regular round bullets are worth $500,000 so the third time through i had every massive weapon i could get carry and ammunition falling out of my pockets. that third time through was a hoot. trying to buy a ton of stuff from the trader at one point...

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Club House

    putting myself down as obsessed with S.T.A.L.K.E.R.. i don't think a single gamer i know either in my "clan" or other could say that in the last seven years they've not heard me mention S.T.A.L.K.E.R. any less than 20 times. ShadowFold --> to carry pretty much a maxed out assortment of death...

    STALKER, wtf?!!

    well it began to struggle with graphic anomalies and or causing my system to lock/reset early last year so i decided to replace it with an eVGA 8800 640MB GTS. wish at the time that nVIDIA didn't refer to the GT as being a "mid-range" product coming in the 4th quarter but as it so turns out i...

    STALKER, wtf?!!

    totally agreed, however, this was done so that i could play with everything maxed out at 1280x1024 on my beloved, but dead, X850XT. - Robert (PmR)DIJ

    STALKER, wtf?!!

    you could add it manually but executing that .reg shouldn't touch any other setting under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management. however, #@%!, i just noticed that for some odd reason part of the quote was dorked up (i had to find this via the...

    STALKER, wtf?!!

    your system is more than capable of handling SoC. i played it with a heavily OC'd Opty 165 and Radeon X850XT without issue after making the following changes: make a .reg file with this and import it: also i suggest looking into using version 2 of Float32: http://www.thefloatingpoint.org/ -...

    Warsow (free FPS)

    well the move would be over now but some snags occurred which have setback my plans for a dedicated server a bit. lady of the house broke her left Ankle and we had to put down our 14 year old Cat due to her Kidney's failing.. rough path into 2008 but hopefully everything will be cleared...

    Warsow (free FPS)

    well it all depends on the quality of the server, the skill of the players and fun of the competition. i personally find this to be a good looking DM/CTF title that is fun to play. right now suck factor that i see everywhere is over the existing servers and their ping times being the core...

    Warsow (free FPS)

    with any luck my moving this past weekend will be fully completed here soon (got everything to put away/organize) so that i can start looking into getting quality hosting for this setup. so far about 20-25 (from this post, my own gaming "clan" and another in the [H]ard|Forum) seem to really...

    Warsow (free FPS)

    yeah the default speed for the mouse is just way to low for myself as well and that was one of the first things i went on the hunt for to change. one of the things i find the most appealing about this title is that it's ridiculously simple to setup (both at the server/client level) and get...

    Warsow (free FPS)

    well at the lowest end here at my office it is running on an Intel P4 2.4/Rambus based system with a 32MB GeForce4 MX 440 just fine. as for your system it should work fine considering the specs i saw in your profile. i haven't tried this yet on any CPU running sub 2.0GHz but i would imagine it...

    Warsow (free FPS)

    yeah the community for this was, from what i've read, quite large and has since dwindled down a bit. personally had this really been marketed better worldwide since day one i would imagine its support wouldn't be nearly as dismal as it is right now in terms of players compared to other titles...
