My New Computer

Well, I can't use it yet, it still needs some work, but I do have the internet back up on the old computer, my computer is awsome!

The Stats:

The speed runs at 2.80 which is an insane amount of speed

I have an intel Pentium4 and 127 GB of storage and a GeForce FX 5600 graphics card with Windows XP and dual shift memory

Let the jealosy begin

You should feel special, because my sister won't do ANYTHING for me. Besides, I do feel jealousy, though it will stop when I build my own computer.

That card seriously sucks..I'd ask your sister if you could trade it back for a 9600 Pro(Ati) or a 5700 Ultra(Nvidia). You wouldnt be able to play Half-life2 in DirectX 9(that means it'll look somewhat like Battlefield 1942 or Quake III) with that card.

Everything else looks sweet,though. Fry's is a great place to buy the computer components.

Nice way to put it, Acrylic. :/

But Acrylic..I still have a better video card than you!

9800 Pro compared to your puny insignifigant 9700 Pro.

stiff shyte Acrylic....and my *cough* is bigger than yours......

IGs just sharing his joy, be happy for the little guy.... IIRC he had to share a PC with his brother, so hopefully this one is for himself only. I have a 5600 FX GO in my laptop, Ive never had any problems with it, save for the fact that I wish it was 128mb, not 64, other than that NO PROBLEMS.....

Sorry Tyrion, you may be made of money but i'm not and c'mon guys the thread says "My New Computer", be nice.

I can't wait to see what it can do I got KotoR and CoD ready for it and don't forget the bucketfull of LAN/online games that me and my brother can play together when were bored like BF1942 and galactic battlegrounds, we have always wanted to play together connected. I thank my presious sister for taking time off of work and school and toiling to build my new computer.

Since you got that new comp, does that mean you can play JA online with us?

A Super Moderator has given you a warning. Ignoring is one thing, but insulting is something else. Since you decided not to pay attention to Jed's warning, maybe you will pay attention to mine. Don't let this happen to you.

Aw...guys let's stop with the "little man" syndrome and the "mine's bigger than yours" thing...

we all know what this is all about and I think it has a lot to do with whats going on outside the forums. The first step is admitting you have a problem. You know I have lots of emails in my "Junk" folder than can fix your *ehem* small problem

Congrats IG I bet its awesome

I just got a new comp at work PENT 4 ! Crap ass video card - guess they don't want us playing games at work.....

I still hate that picture with testicle in the corner.

Just be happy your computer isnt mine.
-pentium 3 551mghz
-uhh I think 64mg WinFox graphics card
-the only thing I have worth anything is my HP (don't know the version) copier, printer, scanner, fax machine, even though I dont use it other than printing
-oh and my 90$ laser mouse and my hand helper mouse pad

other than that be glad your not me

and I think my lab top has just a little below those specs

(both are HP's btw)

congrats on not be being Troopr IG

sheesh, with almost 3500 posts youd think Acrylic would be a bit beyond that type of thing, but quantity doesnt mean quality, obviosuly....HEED THIS LESSON CROW !!

CHEERS !! For IG-64 and his new comp ! Most of us are very fortunate to be able to have a computer to begin with, and we shouldnt take such things for granted.....

Awwwwww But thats what us guys do STTCT we brag and we like it.

:looks at IG-64:

Congrats man on your new PC but you really should look into a new vid card man cause that one lags in performance seriously I know I once had it till I moved up to ATI RADEON 9800 PRO 256MB
I know its expensive and I'm not rich but I saved my money and got it I suggest you do the same except maybe get the XT or Geforce 5900 PRO. Also what kind of Ram do have DDR or RDRAM.

An admin here once banned me. Wont say who, though.

Hey, only reason I talked about my computer is cuz IG said "Let the jealosy begin", and I get competative when people say things like that.

Hehe. Congrats IG. Now start playing KOTOR.

I won't be jealous though, mine's about the same as yours (I have a 9700 Pro, but its full of bugs, Far Cry just won't work).

How about we play Call of Duty sometime? Or how about BF1942?

Can a moderator lock this thread? This thread will probably decend more into flames..and that's coming from me.

:|

Btw Darklord, The 9800 XT isnt really worth it that much(unless IG can afford to spend around 500 dollars..). And I'm sad to say, Ig, that according to Tom's hardware guide, your old ti4200 is at most 10 frames slower than your 5600 U(sometimes even the same). The only difference really is the fact that the 5600 U is DirectX 9(which it cant even run well).

Edit- And IG, I only boasted about my video card because Acrylic was boasting too much, and I had to show him that I have something better.
