    Best Counter Strike Weapon? I swear this is the last thread from me..

    Why is everyone going AWP? :) I like the scout way better.. think like this: AWP hits leg, hand or any limb = dead... Scout needs some moer aiming ( head ) otherwise he'll still walk. Feeds my ego ;) Longrange pistol shooting: Five Seven or Desert Eagle Note that Scoped assaultrifles (...

    Stalker Clear Sky DX10 Screens And Video

    Indeed :) I have to say though ( forgotten about it ) I suffer some minor framedrops at the Bar. perhaps because of the large numbers of people around there. Also, My CPU is at 2.3Ghz, not 3.0 and my ram is only single chanel. So those factors might be huge bottlenecks, and not my GPU. I...

    is there something wrong with the new 9600gt?

    Well it's ok :) I game at 1920*1200 atm and can set quality mostly on high ( Stalker, UT3 if it doesn't crash ) but as you see I don't play Crysis. Although I've got the witcher waiting for me here. AA is 2x and AF 8x - 16x. And yes, thats a HTPC with a 9600GT @stock. CPU is E2160 @ 2.23Ghz

    9600 GT 3DMark

    hmm s weird. I thought a G92 core 8800GT was faster than a G80 core 8800GTS 320. I wasn't talking about a G92 core 8800GTs 512 eh ;)

    9600 GT 3DMark

    No I really meant the 8800GTS 320 :). As I've sold that one for a newer generation cards to use in a HTPC / slight gameable PC. So I've been waiting since the fifth of January to get a new card. 1.5 month without games in my spare time feels like rehab or something -_-

    Any news on µATX geforce 8200/8300 for intel ?

    Cliffy B and Epic claim they are done with the PC, consoles primary focus from here

    first of all i think WOW and Sims sell so well because everyone from 9 till 99 can play it. 2ndly it doesn't contain excessive gore nor real skills to amuse yourself. 3rdly...they're fun albeit not available for consoles. Combine this with the fact that its popular and not taxing for the pc at...

    Half Life 2: Episode Three?

    Err, correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't HL1 build on a Quake ( 2 I think ) engine and source a complete new-build engine? Like I said, I could be wrong.

    Why are banana plugs prohibited in Europe?

    mm I seemed to be confused we were talking about the current running trough an installation rather than trough a body by electrification . I've forgotten about the fact that most equipment are made for a specific voltage and are not interchangeable. For example a lightbulb is made for 115 V OR...

    Why are banana plugs prohibited in Europe?

    Neither 115V nor 230V is safe.... As an electrician ( in Belgium...that Euro's Mainland :p ) we have seen consequences of both failing.. Say you have a 1kW device... ( This is the very LONG way :D ) P ( power dissipation )= U ( Voltage ) x I ( Current ) Looking for the current, we get...

    Would this be a good soundcard for games???

    it's not superb, afaik it does not fully support the ' gamefeatures ' it's pretty ok to good for "normal" use...the occasional game and MP3. just don't expect too much from it.

    Ack...5.1 without actual 5.1...or suggestions?

    you *could* try a quality headphone ( sennheiser comes to mind ) coupled with a soundcard that features Dolby Headphone of CCMS 3D ( creative cards ) possibly with a headphone amp to make your soundstage even wider. otherwise, yes, i'd try the true 5.1.
