Read my post above, i don't have any either aside from two small annoyances and they don't hurt anything.

12. Re: It's been pretty solid for me Nov 22, 2008, 06:20 Efflixi
 
The only "bugs" I've encountered (aside from the irradiated ones in the game!) are two things, first and most annoying to me is that as i play, my "windows cursor" will sometimes show up and I'll get the background window flashing on the right side of my screen. It doesn't actually interfere with anything just an annoyance to see it. The other is that it seems as i enter a new area with lots of cars/vehicles and the game engine is placing them in my field of view, it places them wrong and they drop several feet or get stuck or whatever. I've walked into a junkyard and a random car literally exploded and flew several hundred feet into the air. I figure it's a bug with the rendering engine coupled with a bug with the physics engine.

Neither of these hurt my game play though. I've never had a CTD or anything major. I am loving this game. Best game I've played this year.

A whole 60 parts? That must have taken an entire day's worth of modelling!

I agree with some of the sentiments here. I bought C&C: The First Decade and what is the only game i play? Generals: Zero Hour.

Or people like me who played a warez version of RTW and loved it but never got around to buying it. I'll probably do this.

Videosift is an aggregator. it will show videos (with votes and such) from many sources. Including Youtube, google video, liveleak, break, and many others. I am not sure videosift actually hosts *any* of it's own videos.

Something similar to how vbb or phpbb code does it would be nice:
[url="www.bluesnew.com"]Just a Link[/url]

Although i realize this could be abused, people need to be looking at the status bar to see where a link goes nowadays anyway

I remember this place as Blue's Quake Rag, although i didn't visit it much back then nor for the first year or so of the actual website. However, bluesnews.com has been my homepage across 8 (or more) computers, countless upgrades, 4 OS's, and 11 years.

Couldn't he just go somewhere else and get a license?

I'm normally not in to any company bashing (except EA, burn them!) but i'm going to have to agree with you here. Something is fishy with this...

Get the XigmaTek 1283. It's the same Heatsink (made by the same OEM) and it comes with a fan, for $36 from newegg. My quad core Q9650 sits at 41C at 3GHz with it.

For the record, Creston above this reply (and below my original post, which i edited while he was posting his) offers some very good advice.

I've been building computers for close to 15 years now and it seems that most people overlook one of the most crucial parts to building a computer; the power supply. Don't skimp out on that thing! Get a Corsair or a PC Power & Cooling. You don't really need a 730w PSU for that computer, i'm running a beefier system on a Corsair 620HX which is the PSU i would suggest.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139002

Again, please don't skimp on one of the most critical parts of your system. A cheap/bad PSU can lead to entire system failure. The rest of your system looks fine though.


If i had ~$800 to spend on a new system, here's my top picks:

CORSAIR CMPSU-620HX 620W Power Supply
-$45.00 Instant
$144.99

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor
$189.99

Seagate 640GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
$79.99

G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Memory
-$40.00 Instant
$66.99

ASUS P5K PRO ATX Intel Motherboard
$102.99

LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE Model DH-20A4P-04
$22.99

ASUS Radeon HD 4850 EAH4850/HTDI/512M Video Card
-$15.00 Instant
-$49.99 Combo
$169.99

Grand Total: $777.93

The combo deal on the graphics card is because it comes with a free copy of Alone in the Dark

All of those items and prices are from www.newegg.com and right now, every single one of those items is *FREE 3 DAY SHIPPING* saving you a ton of money.

1 and 2 at least, couldn't get into 3 much. Sad to see this happen as it was totally unexpected (at least to me). I wonder what caused it?

I've only ever been to one LAN party (i'm not a big socializer). It was in 1998 or 1999 and i had my trusty celeron 300a overclocked to 450. A lot of us there (there were about 20 of us) were first timers. I remember us blowing the main breaker on the house and we had to make a trip to the local home depot to get another...

He speaks the truth. I can launch warcraft 3 and takes 100% of one of my 4 cores just sitting at the menu. It's simply reserving it.
