  2. I looked up my account on UBI and I too see that is has been shipped and that my credit card has been charged. I called the support number on my purchase confirmation email to ask what that is all about. The guy I spoke with told me that the game has shipped from the warehouse to the distribution center but as of yesterday (4/28/06) the game has not yet arrived. He told me that they were expected to arrive today, (Friday 4/29/06) and that they would be shipping from there either today or tomorrow and I should receive it early next week.

    Video Card for GRAW?

    I've got a quick question, I say quick because I'm about to purchase a new video card. I can get an ATI Radeon X850 Pro (AGP) for $272.95 Or I can get an ATI Radeon X850 Platinum (AGP) for $325+ On the same site that is listing the non-Platinum version the Platinum version lists for $438.95. Can anyone tell me if there is that much a difference that I should go with the more expensive one? Thanks

    Video Card for GRAW?

    I think if your going to wait for anything 'new' to come out, you wait about 6 months until you buy it and work with it. The reason for this is two fold. One, the prices ussually drop dramatically after a 'new' item has been out for that long. And second, and to me more importantly, you get 6 months of history that determine if the new item is as great as its supposed to be and it's also had 6 months of use by others who have found all the bugs and problems associated with the new item. At 6 months the manufacturer has ussually had time to fix these problems and has released new drivers. So, unless you enjoy trying to figure out why your brand new system is crashing all the time, I would suggest you go with technology that is at least 6 months old and leave the all the potential problems and headaches to all the super geeks out there who enjoy that kind of stuff. Just my 2 cents.

    Upgrading Computer for GRAW

    Is there supposed to be a demo? I haven't heard anything about this? Is the release date still scheduled for the beginning of March? When is the demo supposed to come out?

    I'm also planning on upgrading my Video card. I am planning on getting the RADEON x850. Anyone know where to get the best price. I've been looking on eBay and it looks like I should be able to get one for less than $250. (I'm restricted to the AGP card as my mobo doesn't support the PCI-express)

    Where can I get the CPU-Z application you used for those screen shots? ← Never mind, I found the link after I posted. Thanks

    Upgrading Computer for GRAW

    Thanks for the info. My motherboard manufacturer supplied the following information. ChipSet: nVidia nForce2 Ultra-400 (nForce2-128 SPP) + MCP-T AGP set System Memory: Three 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM sockets Support single-sided or double-sided 2.5v DDR-266/333/400 DIMMs with dual channel architecture in 64/128/256/512/1024Mb technologies Based on what you have told me about the nForce2-128 chipset, I'll want to install my 1gb module in slot 0 and then have my 2 512 modules in slots 1 & 2. I'm still don't know what dual-channel is but I'm assuming that I want my 2 512 modules running in that mode and my 1gb module will run in a single channel by itself. Thanks for all the help.

    Upgrading Computer for GRAW

    Is the x1600 better than the x850?
  12. I'm currently in the process of upgrading my PC for the release of GRAW and wanted to get some advice on memory upgrade. I've currently got 2 512 memory sticks and am adding a third 1gb memory stick. I have three slots for memory and was hoping someone could tell me where the 1gb stick should go in relation to the other two. Is there a specific place the larger stick should go? All three sticks are the same with the exception of the size (DDR PC2700 333 fsb etc...). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, I'm upgrading my video card from a GeForce 4 Ti 4200 to a ATI Radeon x850. I decided on the x850 based on info found elsewhere in this forum. After deciding on this card I started pricing the x850 and found that the x850 comes in many different styles. My motherboard does not support the PCI express so that rules out some but there are still multiple AGP styles. For instance there is a Platinum edition. I'm willing to spend up to $250. If anyone could comment on anything relating to the video card and perhaps suggest my best course of action should be I would again be greatly appreciative.

    Video Card for GRAW?

    I have the original receipt from the first two. I'll buy the same stick from the same maker (Crucial).

    Video Card for GRAW?

    Currenly I've got 2 512 ram sticks. Would there be any problem with filling my 3rd slot with another 512 stick, or should I go with a 1gb stick. In other words, would there be any adverse side effects to having 1.5 gb memory as opposed to 2 gb?
