    The game that started it all!

    I remember playing Pong and Hangman way back in the day. Played the hell out of Gauntlet and Galaga in the arcades. Used to sink $20+ a night into Gauntlet playing with 3other people. Doom was what got me hooked online on the PC and then I remember upgrading to a Pentium75 just to play Quake in...

    7900 GS $149.99

    I jumped on this deal and it is a nice upgrade from my BFG 6800 GT OC that I've had for almost 2 years. Couldn't beat it.

    Monarchcomputer using customers money as a float, anyone have recent experince

    Just stumbled onto this thread. I was wondering what other people thought about Monarch. I just cancelled an order for a CPU cooler last week and I called verify that it was being charged back to my credit card. The rep said that it would be about 30 days. I thought that it seemed like an awful...

    Thanks to [H]ardOCP members who visted 3Dfx collection

    Great site... Brings back some memories. I remember upgrading from a Matrox M3d to a Stingray 128. I stayed with 3dfx all the way up to a Voodoo3, then went to Nvidia. Still have my Voodoo2 somewhere around here.

    Please Valve stop this title spamming

    Raising the Bar is intended as a art/coffee table book. It was not really intended to be something you received with the game. It is an awesome book with alot of great concept art not seen in any of the games. It covers the story of Valve before they even started the original Half-Life. I would...

    Hmmm, stuttering bad in HL2, or skipping?

    Well, I'm now able to play the game and enjoy it. Here's what I did... Went into the cfg(C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\username\half-life 2\hl2\cfg) and changed the following: snd_mixahead from 0.1 to 0 and sv_force preload from 1 to 0 Setting any audio option to anything...

    Hmmm, stuttering bad in HL2, or skipping?

    Same problem here. Went from the memory leak error to this, but I can actually play the game now. Happens mostly when someone starts talking and when music starts. Great game so far, just kind of lose the immersion factor with the stuttering.

    HL2, "Referenced Memory at 0x######" , AND YOU!!!1

    The only thing overclocked in my system is the processor and I've brought that down 100mhz.

    HL2, "Referenced Memory at 0x######" , AND YOU!!!1

    Same error here. Still at work. I'll leave it up to you folks to come up with fix by the time I get home. ;) I've had it pre-loaded for a while now. Had a voucher from like a year ago. Locks up at loading screen with error after choosing new game.

    I'm getting a different error, but I'll try the workaround when I get home from work. Was hoping to play a little bit this morning before work, but received the error. Didn't have time to troubleshoot. Hope it works, thanks!

    I get the same thing whenever I start a new game. I never get any further than selecting a new game. It then locks up at the last loading block everytime during the loading screen. I have to alt-tab to see error on desktop. Running latest drivers, etc. and have absolutely no other issues...

    C4 Mouse Surface?

    I've been using a C4-NGen for a while now and it rules. Couldn't be happier. Better than the everglide I had been using for the past 3 years. The wife has the everglide now...still a great pad.

    id ignores major bug in Doom 3 1.1 patch?

    I think this issue was acknowledged in the original read me for the game. I had the same problem with my soundstorm chip on a NF7-S. Re-installed my Audigy and haven't had the problem since. There are many posts regarding these issues already.

    Guess we know why doom 3 runs better on a 6800.

    Didn't the D3 leak run better on ATI cards than on Nvidia cards? Seems to me that Nvidia just did they're homework to make sure it performed.

    How many people Switching to nVidia?

    Switched from an ATI 9500 Pro to a 6800nu. Great card. I'm very happy with the switch. I've always had Nvidia cards since my last 3dfx card. I've always tried to get the best bang for the buck. I'll be really happy if can open up those 4 other pipes using Rivatuner.

    New Half-Life2 screens

    I believe Greg Coomer at Valve originally posted these screens at the forums. Straight from the source. :) This game will no doubt kick ass. Doom 3 kicks ass. People should just enjoy the games and quit bickering. The one thing I do miss in D3 is the double-barrel shotgun. Boom!

    Anyone notice how Doom 3 is bringing out all the n00bs?

    I remember playing shareware Doom on my 486. The only reason I upgraded to a Pentium 75 was to be able to play software. What a blast.
