To play Diablo II, I just fire up my old AMD K6-III 450mhz with a 3dfx Voodoo3 3500 in it, my token Windows 98 machine.

I have collected quite a pile of defective Nvidia cards recently, I'm usually called in to fix my friends computers. Some Just died, some have got fruity color lines problem. Although all these cards range from 2002 to present. I've always been an Nvidia fan because of their Linux support, this isn't a good trend though.

I've replaced a pile of Nvidia video cards over the last couple years between a half dozen computers I personally own and friends.

Most just seem to die all the sudden,some get the fruity color lines errors or one card had an odd issue It didn't have full colors and would run at 640x480 if I had the official Nvidia drivers installed, however if it was running the default windows driver without 3d Acceleration it would have all the colors and full range resolutions.

Used to be a big Nvidia fan, but the pile of cards I'm building up is just proof of issues.


Also $4000 dollars for a PC and it only comes with regular hard drives... I'd expect a 1Tb Solid State hard drive at least.

News Comments > WoW Faction Changes Begin, Race Changes Planned
17. Re: re: Sep 3, 2009, 03:25 Trashy
 
In response to the three posts that suggested the cost served the purpose of discouraging frequent use of that function, the FAQ states the following:

How often can I change a character's faction?

You may change a character's faction every 60 days.

Imho the price tag's only purpose is profit.

I'd love to work for Blizzard.. I bet they use shredded $100 dollar bills for toilet paper.

$30 dollars is just a shade more than a Blue-ray movie. Cheaper than it is to fill my gas tank. About the price of a good meal, and a few beers. No issue with the price in my book. Worth the price to play a character with my RL friends.

I'm not much of a fan for any ubuntu "Debian" style distribution.. It's just little things that seem out of place with it.. but that's perhaps because I've been in the Redhat camp of distributions for the last 10 years, Slackware prior.

Oh Verno, I knew you'd be an easy person to get worked up..

I'm not trying to make any valid arguments... WoW threads are great fun. So much conflict and emotion for just a game. I'm glad you participated, your my number one.

Verno how is blizzard desperate, they could publish no new content until the next expansion and still rake in billions.. Wouldn't that be more greedy or lazy?

How about this Verno, if your going to regurgitate some old arguments that many former WoW players make, Shit at least pretend you put some effort into it.

News Comments > Samsung Wants To Do Gamers a Solid
25. Re: Samsung Wants To Do Gamers a Solid Aug 13, 2009, 00:14 Trashy
 
From what I gathered previous generation SSDs where bad on reliability.

I currently have 3 OCZ vertex series (two 30gigs and a 120g ) that I've had for 4 months or so. so far no issues or any noticeable speed decreases..

I'll let you know in a year.

Crysis is not a good a good example of load time IMO, Crysis load time is made up mostly pre-rendering that is happening on the CPU. sure SSD may make it get the textures and map data faster but most of it is CPU work.

A better test of SSD potential is say a MMO like World of Warcraft. in a crowded City it needs to fetch the textures of a hundred different players. on a regular 7200rpm hard drive you will wait a few seconds and slowly see people fill in, SSD there is almost no load time and all the model textures are there as soon as you get in.

Yeah MMO's are what I've seen in my experience that most benefit from going to SSDs, I can increase view distance and everything pops on the screen extremely fast... COD IV, Crysis and such.. I may notice a marginal improvement in load times that is all.

SSD are still pretty slick, it's most likely the best speed improvement you will notice on Modern PCs.
