  1. Windows Vista RC2 Release Imminent(Build 5744)

    Hey guys, Will the RC1 key work with RC2? Thanks, lockedon
  2. Dual Core Decisions

    Your hard drives are in good shape. Unless you want to buy 2 500GB Hard Drives. PCI-E card is the way to go. EVGA 7800 GT is a great card. So basically you need to change your motherboard, cpu, video card. This should not cost much. AMD is great. I can't vouch for Intel since I have used Intel in awhile. You could wait because Intel is comming out with some new cpu's. I will see what I can find. Unless someone tells you something else. Take it easy, RC I will have to agree with suryad. The FX-60 blow away nearly all of intel's current cpu's
  3. Dual Core Decisions

    IMO, The system you currently have is great. May I ask, How long have you had your current config? What is your price range? Thanks, RC
  4. Processor vs. Graphics Card

    I have the AMD X2 3800+ and I am a avid user of photoshop and illustrator. It runs very well The 7800 GT is a great card and can play most games at their highest settings. I am not sure of the performance advantage from the Operton and the X2. Make sure you buy some decent memory Hope that helps

  11. Need a Cd key

    Heh You can't ask for that info here. You are breaking the forum rules.
  12. Half Life 2

    I checked on ebay and the majority of the auctions for Half-Life 2 are to sell you a CD-KEY so you can download Half-Life 2 from Value's Steam Service. This all you would really need to have. I'm sure the sellers are trustworthy. If you decide to do this you have to download the steam service from www.steampowered.com Create a account and use the CD-KEY to register Half-Life 2. Once registered you can download the game and play it.
  13. Half Life 2

    Hmm to buy Half-Life 2 from ebay I am not sure. When you buy the retail version from the stores it comes in 4-5 cds (I Think). After you install Half-Life 2 on your computer you have to create a account with Valve's Steam Service. This service allows you to fully activate the game so you can play it.
  14. HELP!

  15. Good Xbox Alternatives To Residend Evil?

    Pick up the remake of resident evil 1 and resident evil 0. You can find these for about $20 each. Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker is a fun game. Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes is also a good game. IMO these are all fun games.
