Shocked My PC is a hard-core-game-pumping-man-hunk machine. What do you run?

i have a top of the line pc. 3.2gig processor, 160 gig HDD, 1 gig memory, latest and greatest arse-fondling radeon, a 16x burner and a 1.5 gig connection to the internet (and before you ask, i would never download free games/movies from edonkey that's just plain rude)

what sad systems are you running to play games?

ps - half life 2 run fantastically on my pc :kill:

daviv hasselhoff is my friend in real life. :yikes:

My dad wants to buy me a new computer since my laptop is on the fritz. I've turned him down 3 times now, but I think the next time we talk about it seriously, I'll take him up on his offer.

Hey that's pretty sweet. If your pop wants to buy me a iMac G5 I'll let him. Anyway who! There are several of us guys on the boards here that actually use/have Macs. So maybe if you ever have any questions, feel free to ask.

No prob dude, always happy to help. I think once you get the feel for it you'll find using Macs to be a enjoyable experience. I personally couldn't live 3 hrs with Expose', a very sweet Mac feature you'll come to love as well I think.

ps - Half Life 1 runs at around 30 FPS, until a lot of stuff happens and it drops to 15 or 20 :kill:

Well what are you running? Jaguar or Panther? If Panther then press your F9, F10, and F11 keys. If your not running Panther then go here. It might not seem like that big of a deal just playing with a QT Demo but after you use if for a few days you start to wonder what you ever did to work without it.

I'll give a example on how I used it just today. I had 3 MSN Chat windows opened, a few folders and of course a web page to read the forum. Now before I ever had Expose I had to simply neatly place my MSN windows in a nice order so I can view how ever many I had going at once (maybe 3 at the same time). It was somewhat a pain to just minimize them all because they were active conversations and to leave them open meant I had to change the size of the window so each on can get viewed or got to with out much hassle. Receiving and sending replies every 1-2 mins, I always had to minimize instead my web page so I can see the windows I had placed behind it anytime...It's a pain.

Well, not anymore! With Expose I leave whatever window I'm using open and anytime I need to get to it I press F9, which shows me everything single thing I have active. Then I simply click what I want upfront. If I, say, hear the MSN shim telling me I got a reply I press F9 to see the windows and then click the one with the reply. If at the same time I hear another reply made in a 2nd conversation then I press F10 and that shows all my MSN windows because that's what I have highlighted or selected. In that 2nd conversation a friend asked if he could have a photo. Now, normally we would have to minimize EVERYTHING so we can see the desktop and go to what folder we need real fast....well, that's just it, it's not fast at all doing it that way. So I simply press F11 and everything active Window is pushed off screen, reviling my desktop and letting me go to whatever I need. Honestly I think for maybe Joe, Expose would be wondrous for his Photoshop work. As he could have a countless amount of windows open and get to whatever one he needs in a instant. It's just a super handy feature. I die without it! DIE I SAY!!
