Just wondered what the difference is between TS and TS overlay please?

Teamspeak is the VOIP program, TS overlay lets you see who's talking (uses the name of the person on TS, and shows it when he is speaking, so you know who says what, comes in handy when you don't know people yet, later on you will recognize people by the voice I guess..

Oh ok then, i've had a little read about setting up team speak, but the fact that i haven't even downloaded it yet or anything is probably why im not quite getting it, im sure i'll sort it out.

This is what ive read, does it sound about right -

Usually, a specific group of people will all download Team Speak, and

one of them will host a Team Speak server. Everyone else will connect to

that server (by IP address), and can then all communicate with one another.

Though, anyone who doesn't have the address of the server, obviously cannot

connect and talk to them.

So, you need to have a server to connect to in order to use Team Speak.

So now im thinking....where am i going to get the IP address to join the online TS GRAW multiplayer games?

public servers yes, but try to find graw related servers might be hard :ph34r:

better search the clan-sites with google,and look at them.

Just so you know I have that exact Gfx card and I was running about 40 FPS on most settings maxed. This is more than enough for good gaming and even during the most intense firefights it only dropped to about 30 (I have a better system so subract about 10 and this should be what your running) Oh and get more RAM!!!! That will affect most games the cheapest way.

Cheers Dewey,

Just and update I was playing GRAW las nyt for about an hour n then abt another hour n a half later and it ran perfect, card maxed out 2! still not sure what FPS im running yet but im sure it was pretty good, no stutterin, or anything, ran lovely! had sum intense rounds 2 and still ran fantastic, really pleased with my card,

Just a question abt ur card dewey, isit the red 1? AGP? if so did you put any kind of heatsink on the thermal pad? bcuz that seems 2 get really hot.

the servers where great aswell las nyt none of them d/c'd or anything! great stuff, really stable connection and im pretty pleased with my 512k adsl! ran great!

Im defo gonna d/l team speak 2nyt as I no what im doing now, got a list of IP numbers of the loading screens of sum of the matches i was in las nyt.

I here what ur sayin about the RAM 2 and im gonna get some, but honestly it still runs fantastic without more! still gonna invest tho. :thumbsup:

Yeah it is a ATI Radeon, not made by a different brand or anything, and yes I do a aftermarket fan/heatsink on it. Can't remember the name but it is a HUGE fan made of copper and it works perfect. Oh and it's PCi-E

I've got the stock fan on the top, but i mean on the underside of it?!

yup heatsinks on all the chips

where can i pick up some heatsinks for those? in the uk please.

Had fraps running las nyt, got frame rates of abt 15-25 in furios fighting situations on multiplayer, still no lag or stuttering tho so i waz quite happy, i really need 2 invest in a new montor, i have a 20ms 15" tft, im looking to invest in a 19" tft about 6-8ms. Ive seen some for around £120-£150 on aria.co.uk. Is there anywhere any1 recommends looking for a descent monitor. Will a new larger monitor with a lower MS help my framerate?

Also could anyone tell me a program which tells me what speed my RAM is, i looked on the actual module and it didnt say, its kingston 512 ddr, but i want to no if its 2100, 2700 etc... All help much appreciated. :thumbsup:

On screens I can reccomend BENQ (I have one and I'm very happy with it)

and ram speed you can find in the config screen system info if I'm correct, otherwisxe look at hardware or the startup-screen by pressing del on startup

looks good, only one thing, if you look at my screen (the FP91G+) the safety compilant standards are mentionned,a nd with this one not, so it might be that it is not compilant with those standards. on the other hand, response, brightness and contrast ratio are far better! so it really looks good to me.

Cheers dude, will it increase framerate then?

the framerate is measured on your graphic card, what the monitor improves is visibillity, so to say the more light-differences the monitor can produce the better sight you can have (contrast) a fast monitor helps in directly giving the image, i can understand you have trouble with a 24/20ms monitor, but the difference under 12 ms... I don't think that makes much difference.

The other things that improve gameplay is better sound (a soundcard leaves more space on your CPU since it takes sound processing form the main processor) but to say a soundblaster audigy 4 is better than my old soundblaster live.... again I don't know. I noticed better gameplay and by far better sounds with my soundblaster live (you can hear more and the game got way more fluent)

There are guys around here with plenty money and guys like me with small children and an suspecting wife who don't have that much to spend.... I may say I bought a decent computer last year, took long to select which rig I wanted and can say I'm fairly happy as long as I don't look too much at what's coming out now.... and I'm sure spending more money wouldn't improve too much for me. On the other hand an ods system with upgrades always is lagging on the weakest hardware..... (slow hard-drive, bus speed or anything) I don't plan on constant upgrading anymore, I will do with this rig for 3/4 years and then buy a new one with the money I saved on upgrades (if my wife lets me.....) :shifty:

I just wish ati tool would work with my gfx card then i could increase mem etc... Cuz it worked with my old 9550se on UT really well.

Ive got a sound blaster 5.1 and my sounds great and is really fluent 2, no delays on shooting or anything,

I havent got loads of money but i do ok. Im only 20 so iv got billz 2 pay 2! I get depressed reading magazines with all new hardware in looking how much it all costs, all im after is more RAM, gona upgrade to 1gb at end of the month and then up2 2gb maybe at xmas, and then get that monitor asap. Just trying 2 sell my old 15" :wall:

Im happy with my cpu aswell, might try and OC it to abt 2.0ghz, (currently at 1.89) very limited mobo tho (ecs k8m800 m2 v2.0)

got a pretty nifty 500w psu so that dus the job, plenty of fans in there aswell but looking to upgrade my stock cpu fan 2 a zalman, (any recommendations - socket 754)

Its not the quietest of machines but that doesnt bother me as i play GR:AW propa loud, (hooked up 2 my stereo)

everytime a grenade goes off i **** my pantz!

My try and post a few picz on ere (can u do that?)

Any recommendations for any of the above, thanks very much 4 al ure help by the way, just learning as i go!

CONGRATZ ON GR:AW GAME OF THE YEAR! did you hear about that any1?

Sorry bud, no idea where to go in the UK, I bought my fan from newegg.com but I am not sure if they deliver overseas, and if so how astronimically expensive it probably is. As far as checking your RAM speed, I can recommend two things: first System Mechanic 6, you can increase RAM speed up to a certain percentage of your total;second, a G-15 keyboard from Logitech, it tells you what your CPU and RAM usages are in game, also displays FRAPS FPS counter so you don't have those annoying number overlays. Hope this helps you some.
