  1. I have ordered all the parts for my new gaming rig. I was depressed about losing my fantasy football performances to close out the year (losing streaks of 2+ games in all leagues and don't make playoffs in any!!) so here is what I bought and the deals I got: Antec Sonata III case w/ Antec 500W power supply - $40 on sale at Newegg about 2 weeks ago 640 GB WD SATA hard drive with 32 MB cache (3 yr warranty) - $20 shipped from Dell after a $50 gift certificate from friend Intel E8500 Core 2 Duo processor - $131 after 30% microsoft live search cashback (in 90 days) ASUS P5Q motherboard - $91 after 30% microsoft live search cashback (in 90 days) EVGA GTX 260 graphics card (196 core superclocked edition) - $172 after 30% microsoft live search cashback (in 90 days) 4GB (2 sticks) DDR2 800 G.Skill ram - $45 from Newegg Samsung DVD burner - $20 from Newegg same printer, LCD monitor (19" dell), keyboard/mouse, speakers as last computer net total: $519 plus about $20 total shipping costs. Higher up-front cost before microsoft cash back - but no rebate and it's instantly credited to my paypal account, so it's already money in the bank with no risk of no-payment considering getting a new monitor to compliment the new rig, as my old 19" Dell runs at a native 1280x1024 resolution and I think I'd like to get a higher resolution if I can. We'll see how things look at full AA and max settings enabled in all games
  2. check dell's website to be sure your motherboard can handle 1GB sticks of ram. i don't know how old it is, but if it's more than 4 years old, there's a good chance it can't take 1GB sticks.
  3. I don't care what they call it, that looks ####### awesome. That lich king is badass. Man I can't wait for this. Also looking forward to this. Surprised that they're only releasing 5 classes at launch. Although D2 had that many, you'd think they'd continue along the lines of D2 LOD with more choices.
  4. are the following real: UFOs, ghosts, Sasquatch, Loch Ness, Atlantis, events in the Bible, Bob Dole how were the pyramids built? who let the dogs out?
  5. I thought this was going to be about the Partridge family reunion.
  6. Anyone here play the Point of Existence mod for BF2? I just finished downloading it (over 1 gig!) and have heard nothing but absolutely glowing reviews.
  7. Ok, so I've played enough now that I am consistantly around middle-of-the-pack in terms of those "points" and nearly always 2:1 k:d ratio (I am almost always a sniper class). I have no clue how to fly heli or jets. I have no idea how to order artillery strikes. I have no idea how to be effective while driving a tank or armored vehicle. But I can lay prone, far away, and hit people in the head when they stop jumping around. I usually pick off strays who try to take over a flag. I'm a bit surprised there aren't other gameplay modes that are more prevelant aside from conquer-and-hold. I guess I need to learn how to fly next. And maybe I'll try out some of the other classes Someone mentioned running classic BF2 sans SF. How does the expansion pack work: are there BF2 only servers, and then those with BF2+SF? Also, how does unlocking kits work? I'm about to hit Lance Corporal and I can unlock a new sniper rifle. Can I use this new weapon on maps? Or am I stuck with the default weapons? (Server dependent, again?) Thanks!
  8. So I'm a complete noob to this game, but so far I'm not being drawn in like typical FPS games. The maps are a little too large, and the dependence on vehicles (air artillery, tanks, etc) and on bombs (grenades, claymores, etc) really turns me off. Hopefully I'll get used to some of the maps so they don't seem as big, but right now I often have trouble figuring out where to expect the opposing forces. I'm also getting killed by tanks, jets, and other vehicles 5x as often as being shot by players. Perhaps it's the maps I'm playing on? Gulf of Oman seems to be played alot, as well as Musharraf City (I think it's called)
  9. Hey, general question. Bought BF2 deluxe yesterday, and in the process of installing now. Long-time player of Counter-strike/Day of defeat. The installation wanted me to install Gamespy Arcade to find games online. PLEASE tell me this isn't required to find servers online! Half-life had a built-in search tool, I'm hoping BF2 will also. Additionally, what other software do you run - anti-cheat, VOIP, etc. - that you find helpful. I'll probably play single player first to learn the controls and get a feel for the weapons. See y'all soon.
