    Help: Reboot loop with Multi-GPU Physx attempt (560 Ti + 8800 GTS)

    So I recently installed a 560 Ti in my system and decided to run an old 8800 GTS along side it for Physx. Whenever the 8800 is physically present the system will go through the post screen, but before it gets to the windows loading screen (I'm running Win. 7 Professional) it reboots. Ad...

    BC2 CTD when loading single player.

    Strange...I'm having the opposite problem. I'm able to play SP all day, but I get MP CTDs after loading (no errors, just right to the desktop). It didn't happen in 10.2, but I installed 10.3a and 10.3 and now I can't play multiplayer. I'll have to see if 10.2 still works.

    10 Annoying Habits of a Geeky Spouse

    Guilty of 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. :D In fact, I'm so guilty of 6 that we had to specifically get a house with a basement so I could get to have a "man/geek room" (wife calls it my "office" when in polite company :p).

    Please tell me how Ea and Steam works for These games...

    If you buy BC2 from steam you can use the key with EA downloader as well. I think it's worth the 50 bux, though I initially had problems running the game with windows 7. After dual-booting and installing it on Vista 64 it works perfectly for me.

    Bad Company 2

    I preordered/loaded through Steam and whenever I go to start the game (this is from inside the Steam Games panel) a little popup says: My connection works and I've tried disabling my firewall, making my PC the DMZ, forwarding the requisite ports, disabling and uninstalling my anti-virus, etc...

    Hotel WiFi Should Be a Right, Not a Luxury

    As a bona fide product of the Deeeeep South I can say (without equivocation) that there are indeed areas of the South that are barren tech wastelands.

    As you get older, are you starting to suck at gaming?

    I'm pushin' 30 and have noticed that while my reflexes and aim have gotten somewhat worse than they were in the 90s my tactical sense and use of strategy are much, much better. Less gunz-a-blazin' and more irritating traps or getting the opposing team/players to commit forced errors.

    Should we even think about the possibility of dedicated servers for MW2?

    I think this is my second biggest problem with this game. The matchmaking is fucked to say the least. I'm at lvl 70 and the other day I was in a lobby that was fairly evenly split between stars (50+) or multiple prestige players on the one hand and stripes (30 and below) on the other. The...

    LTTP-away from PC gaming for 5 years and playing catch up

    I'm an FPS guy like yourself, but I've gotten into a few RTS games over the years, namely the Company of Heroes and World in Conflict series. I have to second Far Cry 1/2, the battlefield games, Call of Duty 4 (you might have played it on the console, but the PC version is by far superior)...

    MW2 gameplay and strategies thread

    The best thing you can do is be patient and not get lulled into sleep by staring through the crosshairs for too long. Really, all you need are decent reflexes and awareness, hence why I use sitrep pro when sniping. There's nothing funnier than staring at an enemy sniper for 30 seconds before...

    Is there any way to set Steam status to "away" or "offline" permanently?

    I didn't really want to do this, but I got around the problem by simply changing my screen name in the user settings panel. Quick fix, but steam should really allow you to play all games online without logging into friends.
