  1. PLZ PLZ PLZ Stop the gag order UBI it is very unhealthy for obvious reasons.
  2. With migryder help I finally found him. HOOAH I'm not a complete idiot . I wanna tell u guys where I found him but out of respect for migryder I won't. ty migryder
  3. I can't find the taliban leader in the 2nd mission of the centcom mod. I've looked everywhere, fraged, breached, at4'ed ever building I could find, I've ran all over the map and still can't find him. Plz help me
  4. I can't find him either. There are rooms with locks on them but I cant get through them. I've tried breachs, frags, and AT4's no luck. Where the hell is he?
  5. 3 GPU's, and Quad GPU's is amazing! What's next, video cards as big as a mobo?
  6. the ASUS 680i SLI Striker looks like an awsome mobo with 3 PCI Express 16 slots, a copy of GRAW, and a pretty good onboard sound system. ME likey likey.
  7. So If I dont go with the SLI option should I go with a 650i ultra mobo?
  8. MY CURRENT SYSTEM: -Windows XP SP2 -ASUS A7N8X mobo -AMD Athlon XP 2000+ 1.66 GHz -RADEON 9250 128mb -512MB DDR RAM PC2100 -Creative Labs SB Live 5.1 Sound card -16x DVD-RW DL Burner -80GB 7200rpm Samsung Hard drives -AOC 19" monitor Max res 1600x1200 -Mid Tower case w/400W Power Supply Well I'm paying in Canadian dollars, and I dont really see the benifit of paying $333.00 more for 6700 and only getting .26 GHz more clock speed. I only plan on putting $3,500 max into my upgrades. That does seem like a good option, but I would want to change out: -Mushkin XP-650W Power Supply with a 1000w SLI ready PSU. -2GB Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 Kit - Corsair 2GB XMS2-8500 TWIN2X. -Seagate 400GB SATA II Hard Drive - 2x Seagate 300GB Barracuda 7200.9 SATA II w/ NCQ, 16MB Cache(looks like a better deal than the 500GB verion) -2 x e-VGA 7950GT KO 512MB - eVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTX -Centurion 534 Case with Window - Full or super tower for future upgrades All this will probably cost more that $3k. What I meant is that I should wait till the Qcores are widely avalible on the maket, thus dropping the price of the Dcore making CPU purchase cheaper. Am I right? QUESTION: I have been re-thinking the SLI GPU idea. If I buy 1 8800GTX now then wait 6 months to a 1 year and buy another one, than shouldn't there be a better single GPU card on the maket that preforms better than the 2x 8800GTX's in SLI? if yes than this raises the question of needing an SLI PSU and MOBO doesn't it?
  9. Is this what u wanna get, or what u think I should get?
  10. A guy would think that with the release of the Qcore that the Dcore's would go down in price? Also memoryexpress.com is the cheapest place I can find so far that is close to home in Red Deer, AB.
  11. I do plan on going SLI in a year or 2, so thats why I figured I would buy a 1000W now instead of buying a 600w now and halfing to buy a 1000w later. I figure I am saving money this way, am I? I don't plan on o/c for about year, cuz with this system I don't realy need to right now. What are the benifits of going with an sound card instead of the onboard sound? I already have a DVD burner, 19" AOC monitor, speakers, and OS. I plan on having a licenced tech to install the hardware and software so that I don't void my warranty. The only problem is that they wanna charge $69.00 per hour for 3 hours service (1 hour hardware, 2 software). I dont expect to run games 2-3 years from now on the highest settings, but I do expect a decent FPS on medium settings. I just wanna get a good PSU so that I dont get any power issue's when I add a second card. Money is an issue that why I want these upgrades to last 3-4 years. MORE QUESTIONS: - Is it better for me to wait untill the Quad Core's hit the maket then buy a 6600, or maybe even a 6700? - Is the MOBO, RAM, and CPU all compatible with eachother? - Do I really need water cooling for the GPU?
  12. It should be able to handle future games like GRAW:2, Half-life 3, Armed Assault 2, and Call of Duty 4 right?
  13. I am going to do some hardware upgrades to my pc which I hope are going to last 3-4 years + be vista ready. The pic below shows my ideal upgrades from memoryexpress.com, what do u think and is it all compatible?
  14. Sry for not replying sooner, I've been very busy. All this info is great, but I'm having a hard time finding hardware at good prices that will let me play FPS shooters 2-3 years for now as well as support vista. With my current system I can't play any of the lastest FPS's like GRAW which is really frustrating. I am going to do some more research and look at my best choices for AMD or intel based systems. In the mean time more info from you guys will go a long way in helping me make my decision. Agian ty for all the info.
  15. Hello, I recently went to a compusoft store in Alberta looking to do hardware upgrades on my current system. After picking out some hardware they gave me a price quote which came to a total of $2,830.20 canadian. This is the hardware that was on the list: Compusoft order: Video card - eVGA 7950 GX2 1GB PCI-E $699.00 hard drive - Seagate 500GB SATA2 $369.00 Sound card - Creative SB X-Fi XtremeMusic $169.00 ( heard it doesn't work well with gaming ) CPU - AMD64 AM2 X2 4200+ $279.00 motherboard - Foxconn nForce 590 SLI $299.00 Power supply - SPI 700W EPS 24/8pin PS $199.00 RAM - Crucial 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 533 PC-4200 $349.00 Black Antec 10 bay full tower $89.00 Hardware assembly - labour $69.00 O/S and device driver install - labour $138.00 Sub total: $2,670.00 GST: $160.20 TOTAL: $2,830.20 After that I came home and compared prices & hardware at tigerdirect.ca and ncix.com. In doing so I found cheaper prices for some of the same stuff plus better hardware ( I think?) for my FPS gaming needs. At tigerdirect.ca the order was as listed: TigerDirect.ca order: Seagate / Barracuda 7200.10 / 500GB / 7200 / 16MB / ATA-100 / EIDE / OEM / Hard Drive $266.99 AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ 2.20GHz / 1MB Cache / 2000MHz FSB / Socket AM2 / Dual-Core (Windsor) / Processor with Fan $247.99 Asus M2N32 WS Pro NVIDIA Socket AM2 ATX Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / PCI-X / SLI Ready / Dual Gigabit LAN / S/PDIF / USB 2.0 / Serial ATA / RAID $444.99 Crucial Dual Channel 2048MB PC4200 DDR2 533MHz Memory (2 x 1024MB) $339.99 BFG GeForce 7950 GX2 Dual GPU / 1GB GDDR3 / SLI / PCI Express / Dual DVI / HDTV / Video Card $666.99 Thermaltake / ToughPower / 700-Watt / ATX / 140mm Fan / SATA Ready / SLI Ready / PFC/EPS / Power Supply $203.99 Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy SE $44.99 SUBTOTAL : $2,215.93 S&H : UPS WorldShip CA.... $4.95 TAX: $135.60 TOTAL: $2,356.48 Compusoft - Black Antec 10 bay full tower $89.00 Compusoft - Hardware assembly - labour $69.00 Compusoft - O/S and device driver install - labour $138.00 TOTAL $2,652.48 And at ncix.com NCIX.COM ORDER AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Dual Core Processor Socket AM2 Windsor 2.2GHZ 2X512KB 89W 90NM Retail Box FREE GROUND SHIPPING FOR THEIS ORDER!

Keep in mind that I'm a novice in hardware knowledge and am a FPS gamer whose hoping that these upgrades with last me 3-4 years *fingers crossed*.
