  1. You too, bud.
  2. Getting reacquainted with old friends might make us want to spend money again. Can't have that!
  3. +1 Old man bonus! Greetings to any old friends who are still here. It's been a long time.
  4. I'm still proud of myself that I went for the 6600GT after doing research entirely on my own 2 years ago. I STILL have one, and to the best of my knowledge, the one I gave a friend is still in use also. That card made the hall of fame for best vid card values, no doubt. Probably all-time top 3, if not the best, considering Brown's Law.
  5. I'd uninstall & reinstall the entire client if I were you. Unless you are on 56k, that shouldn't be a big deal. 5 months is a long time with this game, with all the patches. Better to get the most recent full install & get the relatively tiny patches.
  6. It's always puzzled me why people dread reformatting & reloading as much as they seem to. Once you get good at it, the entire process can take as little as an hour & a half to be fully, fully functional again. With gmail, villagephotos for family pics, and CD & DVD-Rs, I'm at full speed on a clean box in no time, with 0 worries. Gotta get streamlined for starting from scratch, it pays huge in the long run.
  7. Disable virtual memory, you'll be good to go. Oh, and turn all the eye candy back on after you do. No need to turn it off with your graphics card(s) and amount of RAM.
  8. It's a first, have rebooted, whole 9 yards. I spoke with another player having similar issues.
  9. The card's overheating, I would guess. You can get ATI utilities to monitor your graphics card temp, bet that's it. Same thing happened with my 9700 Pro. Made me mad, so I bought a 6600GT. In my particular case, it was the fan specifically.
  10.

I only have a gig.
  11. My AMD system runs a lot better with Nvidia chipsets... heh. There's always a critic.
  12. My issue is the Authentication Error. I can't get in the damned game! I just uninstalled it, am downloading the latest/greatest full installer now. Maybe that'll werk.
