    GTA 4 Graphics mods?

    The way you go about it depends on the version your running. If you downloaded the game from Steam you'll automatically be on version The best modding version is because of the engine changes they made with the latest version. There is a way to downgrade the Steam version...

    Black OPS release going disasterously on the PC

    SP freezes occasionally still for me. The patch didn't seem to help. No stuttering while playing normally, but has froze up on me every time I play SP. My MP has been surprisingly fluid and stable so far. When I first join a server I get about 5 seconds of rubber-banding and stuttering, but it...

    260.63 via Nvidia are up!

    I can also confirm a very nice boost in BC2 from the previous drivers on my single 470. I had turned down the settings to med all around (after having them almost maxed on my 5770) and couldn't understand why I was stuttering so bad. Running maxed again without issue. Testing was all done today...

    AIM might no longer work

    These days I mostly use gmail chat as my main means but at home I'll still have good old AIM Lite going: Tabbed windows, simple file transfer, small footprint, logging, offline msg'ing. All I want out of a chat program. I know I can connect to aim through gmail, I just like having a...

    WoW - Late Night Raiding?

    Depending on what realms you look at there are a few that go pretty late. I'm currently on US-Blackrock and there are a number of AUS guilds on the realm that usually don't get started till around 1-2am PST (server time). There are also some PST guilds that don't start until later on in the...

    best mechanical keyboard for gaming?

    Wow good read. I had NO idea there were so many types. I just found out the hard way I am having keyblocking problems on my logitech illuminated in some of my games and now I'm looking at one of these mechanical keyboards. It's a bit embarrassing to call myself a gamer and not know about these!

    Sorry if this is old news, but for this upcoming mythical patch I noticed: - Some potential sources for lag/rubberbanding have been eliminated Is this referring to the lag I get for the first map I play. Usually when I log in for the night I'll rubber-band all over the place for like the...

    Normal for a GTX 470 to hit 80c when playing video?

    I just got a evga 470 earlier this week and I had it going to the TV playing video for 2 hours and the temp was 71C. I just played 2 hours of BC2 and now its sitting at 52C. The ambient temp is pretty high today, it's 80F in my apt atm. I know there's no dust as I've only had it in for a week. I...

    Are folks here happy with the overall gaming experience of the GTX 400 cards? I'm not

    I just replaced my ever-crashing 5770 with a 470 and I'm liking the results as well. Performance-wise the 470 edges out the 5770 in most of the games I've tried so far but my CPU is turning into the bottleneck now. Loaded the beta drivers and BC2 has been fun to play without crashing all the...

    Its High Noon! Red Dead Redemption released

    So I see some guy just camped out in the desert and I slow up and dismount next to him. He jumps on my horse and just stands there. I wasn't sure what to do so I just lassoed the guy up and got instantly hit with a Wanted. Kinda lame there. Much later this random whore is running out in the...

    Bad Company 2

    When you guys play medic what kits do you use? Do you go for the two healing bonuses (range,heal speed) or go for offensive boosts (magnum ammo,scope). I love using the MG36 with a red dot scope but I'm not sure if it's worth it to put magnum ammo on a LMG or go for the healing bonus.

    Hate to do it but Another WoW question about lvling

    You really don't even need Questhelper or Carbonite anymore. The built in quest guide is just as helpful. I wouldn't follow a guide blindly either since it will probably max out quests per zone. Right now I'm just pushing as fast as I can to get to Northrend as soon as possible. I'm skipping...

    Official 10.4 Drivers out

    Still getting grayscreen (recovers) /blackout (hard reset) at random times. Usually occurs a few times a day but only 1-4 times a month total. Doesn't matter if I'm just browsing the web or have WoW/BC2 running. Checked heat, power, drivers and bios' of all flavors since I got my 5770 back in...

    Ha you know I never understood how there were people already halfway down the map by the time I load into the game. I didn't realize it was an ATI issue. I don't mind THAT much it's usually only like a 10sec delay compared to the others but I might try running in dx9 to see how much worse it is...

    I can vouch for the above link. I've used that in the past to get into old systems at a previous job. A Linux boot disk utility would also work but that ntpasswd works just fine.

    Does 10.3a work for you?

    Well I just loaded these drivers up yesterday. Played WoW for about 3 hours and BC2 for about 4 hours without any hiccups so far. WoW is usually pretty good anyways but I've been getting black screen crashes with 10.2 in BC2 after about a half hour of play. Didn't get any errors last night at...

    Sapphire 5770 - slight issue after install

    Maybe you hit a drive jumper when you put in your vid card. Not very likely but I've done worse. Check your physical connections again since that's the only major change you've done. Slightly off-topic: I have the same card as you. Just wondering what drivers you're running and what games? I've...

    I see ping times for most servers except for 10. They are all at 1 and I'm doubting it's really that low. Is there a way to add a new server to your favorites?
