And one more thing.. I am betting that steam will crash or will have a down period on the 16th. If anyone was watching it during the release of css, their bandwidth was maxed out and a lot of people could not buy and was having major problems.. Unless Valve increases their bandwidth by the 16th (which I bet they will do) they are gonna have problems.

You can play hl2 with out steam hello people are you dumb.. Valve would not screw over the people who live in the boon docks with no internet.... the only thing you need steam for is to play multi.. Steam just verifies your cdkey so you can do this.... and if for some reason you DO NEED STEAM to play single player, there will be a patch to get rid of that just like the cracked css.. SO no worries for the people who buy retail.

You don't have to use steam to play Hl2 single player.. Think of the people that don’t have the net; valve wouldn’t screw them over because of that... Plus look at the css crack... the people that have that play with out connecting to steam, so I bet there will be a crack like that for hl2 is you have to use steam.

Now I am just waiting for this to turn into a doom3 release.. Stores getting it before the street date and "accidentally" selling it.... But I will be one of those guys that goes to a store and tries to trick an old lady to going into the back room and getting me a copy =)

About the ram subject, I just bought today Kingston 512mb ddr Dual Channel which only cost me $90 bucks. This seems fine to me considering I remember when there was a silicon shortage or something and ram for some reason all ram prices doubled.
For paying 600 bucks for a video card I can understand it. A person like me who is into cars and will spend $1600 dollars for coilovers is the same thing for a person who is into to computers and spends 600 on a vid card. It’s all a hobby (btw: I am one of those people who spent that much :|).

Does anyone else find it intesreting that the ID team said they would release the demo when the "time is right."? How the hell do they know when the time is right and when is the right time? I think its NOW but what do you guys think?

I will have enough money to buy the ultras but if I do that I won’t have any money left to buy ram. I am just trying to decide if my current config will run doom3 on high and if not I will then go buy more ram. If it can run it as is then I will go buy new speakers.

Question: I an trying to decide if I should spend the money on more ram (currently have 512mb ddr 3200) or if I should buy new speakers for my computer. I have the klipsch 4.1 and have heard the 5.1 ultras. This of course is all for the prep of doom3. What should it be guys?

System specs:
P4 3.0 gig presscott
Gainward 5950 ultra 256 golden sample
512 mb ddr 3200
Audigy xgamer

Well I am off to go to pixelusa (www.pixelusa.com) to get some more ram cuz I don't want doom3 to kick my comps ass.

On the subject of sound cards, I had the Sound Blaster Live! Value for a very, very long time and I was completely happy with it. I can’t remember any other piece of hardware that I kept for that long and I never had problems with it.
I am just waiting for the day that audio starts to become more or almost the same amount of concern as graphics are. Then we can watch creative pump out a sounds card every 8 months ;).

Added: Don't buy those speakers man! I have the 5.1 Klipsch Promedia Ultras and they fucking rule. As for sound cards whats wrong with a Audigy 2 ZS? Why does everyone have to buy the platinum?

So I go away for the weekend and this topic turns from doom3 stuff and hardware talk to fat white people and little Asians that can eat a lot of hot dogs... Wow we are running out of stuff to talk about.

All I got to say is that I just watched the g4techtv special on doom and it rocked. Granted I d/l'd it and it looked like crap it still amazed me with the graphics. Still hoping that ID will surprise us and release the demo early!

GameSpy: Has the DOOM 3 demo been completed yet?

Tim Willits: We're working on it, and as soon as we figure out the best time to release it, we'll release it.


Crosses Fingers!

Oh and BTW.. on tweaker website/forums. The moderator says that tweaker only did the Theme song. So maybe no actually music just the crazy/good sounds that help make the situation vibrant?

Tonight on G4TechTV at 10pm Eastern time, the show called Icons will be taking a look at the upcoming DOOM 3 and trials and tribulations of how it came to be. Hopefully there will be some new info thrown our way and perhaps even some new footage of the gameplay in action. The blurb for the show says that "id's designers and programmers describe their struggle to make a return trip to that hellish world in DOOM3". For those of you who get G4Tech TV, unlike myself, *grumble* make sure you don't miss out on this!
