  • What kind of computer do you use

    I need to get a new system for gaming. Right now I play on my thinkpad... so I know I can do a lot better with the graphics and how the game runs.

    So..

    What system do you have?
    What Memory do you have?
    What video Card?
    And Joystick Y/N?


    TIA for the feedback everyone.

      Re: What kind of computer do you use

      Whatever you get, get a gig of RAM. You'll need it for BF and newer games. Well, you don't need it but it really helps in load times and smoother performance. For a joystick, you don't need anything fancy since it's not a flight sim. I use a Saitek Cyborg and it works fine for flying. I don't think they make them anymore so you could check out the Evo sticks. Another good one is the Logitech Extreme 3D. I happen to like ATI cards but if you got something against them you'll be fine with nVidia. Both produce good cards. One thing to note is that ATI releases driver updates regularly so if there's a problem with a game a driver update might solve it. Oh, if you ever happen to come across two extra monitors, the newer ATI cards support surround view like the Matrox Parhelia did. :)

      - It's who you game with.

        With this I can run everything at max for BFV.

          wickerman = Turbojuice???? from MWIR??

          Your avatar is the same as a guy who posts on another board I spend time on, might be a coincidence though.

          I have nothing against ATI or Invidia, anything would be an improvement now. I think it will be a few months before I am ready to buy but I want to do my homework first.

          Keep it coming :D

                Hmmm... At one point in time I could rattle this off at the top of my head. But now i'm found peering inside to try and remember...

                I've got an ASUS P4P800 Deluxe with a P4 currently running at 2.8GHz.
                768MB PC3200 memory from Crucial.
                nVidia GF4 Ti/4600 w/ 128MB
                Samsung SyncMaster 191T 19" flat panel.
                Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 Joystick
                Nostromo N52 Speedpad
                IBM Explorer optical mouse

                  How did you set up your Speedpad? Saddly I looked your up and its the first time I have seen that. Seems like it would be great for gamin. I take it that completely replaces the keyboard. But what do you use the hat on the side for?

                              I just got the N52 last month and I love it! By hatswitch do you mean the directional pad? If so, I have it set up for stance up/down, reload and shuffle (ghost recon). It took a couple weeks to get used to, but once you do it's great. PCclub has them for $29.

                              I can play RS, GR, JO, IL2-FB and LoMac all with High or Med-High settings on this:
