  1. Oh ya and I found one of my old truck with an XRW sticker i did.
  2. So it's good to see people are still checking in. Was going through some old folders on my pc and came across a GR folder and look what I found from the days when I used to run our team site. Hope you are all doing well.
  3. Hey ronin. Wow. last time I posted here was 2010 , Been a very long time and have been curious about this new GR as well. Wonder how many of the guys we used to know are still around?
  4. Thanks for the info alley, I will have to find my mic and say hello one of these nights. Good to hear you guys are still around.
  5. Hey Chuck, I was wondering the same thing. I will have to check in here more often to see if anyone else is still lurking around. The only other member I am still in touch with occasionally is XRW Pantyraider, I have him on my Xbox live friends list.
  6. ya thanks... i just hit a slow spot between pays now. the tower is sitting on the table waiting for memory on the cpu lol. it is tough to see it there and i can't use it
  7. Goldeneye for the N64 was one of the best fps ever. GR is tops for pc though
  8. well i think that cpu is going to be way out of my price range here. i think i will be ok with the cpu i already picked. and today i picked up 2 80mm blue led fans and a 4 channel aluminum fan controller. i was going to get 2 more for the front but after putting the others in the case i think i will just get a 120mm fan. still need to get a good heatsink/fan for the cpu. any ideas?
  9. you must have set it beyond its frequency range... i did that once messing around and finally had to enter in safe mode to correct it.
  10. two words that people say i can't stand are as follows. 1: axed, as in i axed you a question. how hard is it to say ask? 2: acrossed, as in he is acrossed the way. i mean come on... it is across!
  11. no team work??? it is all about team work and definitely no tk'ing. plus our server still gets on average 20-25 players a night playing FLAVA 1.4. and our team is pushing close to 100 active members. this game is nowhere near dead yet
  12. thanks for all the tips guys... it is helping a lot. i was looking at heatsink fans today but wasn't sure what to get just yet. i did pick up my tower though, i got the Raid Max Scorpio in blue since the fans glow blue anyway. and they lowered the price of the tower from $99 last week to $69 this week. hoping the cpu will drop like that in the next few weeks lol
  13. i use a logitech optical mouse, wheel and 2 buttons... never a problem and very cheap
  14. this is going to be very helpfull in the coming weeks. thanks white
  15. the canada computers has the one i want: Pentium 4 - 800MHz FSB, Socket 478 Pentium 4 2.4C GHz w/ Hyper-Threading Technology Retail. anytime i can save i few bucks i will. thanks for the info.
  16. lol yes i am canadian the P4 3.2 is over $600 here as well well i will try to use the os with backups first... i want to make this as easy as possible. then worst case reformat and reinstall everything
  17. well that why i am here lol you guys know more about building these then i do
  18. i guess i have been in denial... even when i was getting my new mobo yesterday the, i was talking to the people there and they said the ATI cards are out selling all the Nvidia ones now. and he was telling me how they are out performing the FX cards as well. who knows maybe the xmas it is time for a change
  19. i thought because of the new chipset and bios i would have to reformat the drive and reinstall everything. if thats the case i am much happier now and my current os is Xp Home
  20. ya i based this on the mainboard so i can build around it later. and as for the cases, i decided to go with the black atx. it has 2 less fans (which i can pick up cheap anytime) it doesn't come with a power supply and thats ok cause i just bought a 350 watt about 4 months ago. so i can't really justify $300 on just a tower at this point. just wish the P4 3.2ghz wasn't so much. also i am not looking forward to reformating my hd for the new system... wish there was away to just plug it in and go
  21. ok i just bought my mainboard today: MSI 865PE Neo2 Special Features • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology • Dual-Channel DDR400/333/266 Memory Bus (6.4GB/S Memory Bandwidth) • 800/533/400MHz FSB, 8X AGP, USB 2.0 • Intel 82562EZ (10/100 LAN) • Serial ATA • MSI CoreCell chip, Live Update, Fuzzy Logic4, PC Alert, i-Speeder Chipset * Intel® Springdale 865PE Chipset - Supports FSB *400 (Northwood only)/533/800 MHz - Support Single or Dual channel DDR 400/333/266 non-ECC memory up to 4GB - Support AGP 8x or 4x at 0.8V (AGP 3.0) or 4x at 1.5V (not support 3.3V) * Intel® ICH5 Chipset - Integrated Hi-Speed USB 2.0 controller, 480Mb/sec, 8 ports - 2 Serial ATA/ 150 ports - 2 channel Ultra ATA 100 bus Master IDE controller - PCI Master v 2.3, I/O APIC - Supports both ACPI and legacy APM power management - Serial ATA/150 FSB * Support 400* (Northwood only)/533/800MHz Intel NetBurst micro-architecture bus. Main Memory * Supports 4 unbuffered DIMM of 2.5 Volt DDR SDRAM * Supports up to 4GB memory size with non-ECC * Supports Single or Dual Channel DDR 400*/333/266 MHz and up (*In order to use DDR 400, FSB 800 CPU is required). next pay will more then likely be my new processor P4 2.4ghz then after that 2 sticks of 512 Dual channel DDR 400 and a new tower with 5-6 fans depending on which one i go with. so it will be another 6 weeks or so before i get to use it lol but its starting. here is a pic of the tower i will more then likely be getting this is the tower i really want though only thing is the black one is $99 the silver is $269 but so far the mainboard was $145 plus tax, CPU is going to cost $279 and the DDR is going to be $244. i am going to stick with my 2 harddrives for now my cdr and cd drives. i have a soundblaster gamer 5.1 card and a GF 4200 Ti Turbo. so this will cost well over $800 bucks to get my machine up and running and that is with the cheaper tower
