  1. That was years ago. Its not possible any more. The 2pdr is a far more powerfull gun than the pan 25mm.
  2. bump, cant play, with no info from CRS on this, well, Im gonna unsub. Makes no sence to stay with no info.
  3. Thx, so no solution yet. Just have to assume CRS are working on it, as more and more will shift to the Radeon 79xx cards.
  4. After I switched to the Radeon 7970 I have this weird anomaly, where there are are large boxes around all foilage and trees. Makes it de facto imposible to play. I have fully updated drivers on win 7 32bit, no problems with my old radeon 4890. Anyone else?
  5. I think you are right. The value of the quad core over the dual core will probably show in a year or so, when new 3d-shoothers and other games arrive. Right now, the difference between the dual core and quad cores are rather marginal, and hardly worth the extra money for the quad core, but who knows what the near future brings. I doubt you will be able to see any noticeable difference between a dual core and a quad core. Cmpared to a single core- yes,, but you cant even get those any more I think.
  6. Tests has showed that you wont get much extra for your money wioth the I7 in regard to gaming. MB, ram and CPU are expensive and you dont get extra FPS in gaming generally. The I7 is suoperior in many other areas, but not really gaming. If you want a gaming rig, you will get by far the best performance for your money (and FPS pr./dollar) by going for a quad core 9500, 9600 series or core 2 duo E8600, and OC the shat out of it. The E8600 will go to 4ghz on a top aircooler, the 9500 will go to 3,6-3,8 ghz. Its also quite easy to see from tests that you dont get much extra fps for your money going for the expensive dd3 ram. Instead, go for ddr2 ram with low latency (CL-rating)- they will perform pretty much as good as the expensive ddr3 ram clocked higher- also tested (the issue with the expensive ram is that ram doesent scale very well). So, basically, if you want a gaming rig, and dont have unlimited ressources, I would go for a decent gigabyte mainboard, a Q 9550 or Q9600, a monster air cooler, 4 gigs of DDR2 ram running 800mhz with low latency.
  7. Hey, I dont want to hijack this thread, but Vagnluv, what are your experinces with the SSD drive? I have been thinking using one as my primary boot, and then keep a typical HD as secondary for storage. Szy, a good way to ressearch OC is to go to the various sites that deals with OC. I always check out these sites, when I upgrade. Extreme overclocking.com is one, where you can read all about the various steppings etc.
  8. Thx, checking it out.
  9. I see the "server online", but when I try to launch, I get the error "Registry lookup failed" Then the launcher closes and I have to log in again. Anyone else that cant get in now with this error?
  10. Basically, Szy, you are in a range where it doesent matter what GF 295 you chose, what cpu etc. you are in the high end market, and 5% differences in performance wont change anything for you in games, as you will be able to run them all with no noticeable difference. If you want to make a difference, make sure you buy a very good cooler. If you go for aircooling, and go for one of the best aircoolers like the Thermalright 120 series, you will be able to OC the 920 substantially. Most techsites like Anandtrech, Xbitlabs and Toms hardware have OCed the various chips, so its not hard to find guidance. Thats what would make a difference to your decisions- OC or no OC. The difference in performance could be as much as 15-20% averagely. The other decisions you are going to make, whether chosing this or that GF 295, will maybe mean 1-2 % if you are lucky. So, since you allready are going for high end, the only place you can really make a difference is getting an OC mainboard, kick arse cooler and OC the I 920 skyhigh. Ohh, and for the love of God, dont underestimate the value of a good monitor. This is definately a place, where you dont want to save money.
  11. For some reason my core 2 duo start wwii.exe. with affinity defalt set to core 0 only. Is there a way to set the application so it starts default with both cores? I have checked many of my other games, and thet all start pr. default with both cores.
  12. 671mb. Not doing this from work .
  13. This is good stuff- fight for the suburps, as they did in RL.
  14. Currently, there are only two alternatives in the graphic card market. Either buy somesthing ****ty that will bring you thorugh life the next 6-12 month, or buy a GF 8800. Dont buy anything in between, especially the high end dx 9 cards- they are allready obsolete. In a year from now, we all need dx 10 cards anyway, and then you will be sry, if you bought a GF 7950 or bthe current high end Radeon. Buy cheap shat now and live with it for 6 month, or go for a GF 8800. Anything else is madness imho.
