      If you want a discussion, then let me tell you something about your choice of operating system. Actually, don't let me, because I don't think I can do it without being offensive.

          Well, he said "8800gtx", so I'd assume he has one of those.

            We had this debate in here.
            People post threads like this all the time. If this isn't the way we want it to be, then make a rule about it. Don't criticize people for something that isn't against the rules.
            If we do want to change it, then let's change it, but don't criticize if noone's doing anything wrong.

              He's not criticizing it as an administrator; he's criticizing it as an intellectual.

                Truely my gripe was the lack of question/debate/spark that should have gone along with this thread that would have distiguished it from just some +postcount.

                  You guys reeeeeeeeally need to relax a bit.
                  Fire up a J, have a glass of merlot... please, anything.

                  If I tried really hard I could probably think of a few things more important than flaming someone for posting a thread about their new gaming rig on a gaming server's forums.

                  A simple, "Hey, that's cool." would suffice. The thread would've either gone nowhere or sparked a conversation about people's recent gaming rig additions/builds. Now we're having this stupid debate again.

                  He wasn't being disrespectful. He wasn't spamming the board with completely irrelevant things - he was posting about his GAMING rig in a GAMING community. If your objective is to keep the forums clear from any sort of low-key, friendly conversation... well, fine I guess. I don't see how that would do anything other than lower the morale around here, but what do I know? The sort of posts that started this thread annoy me, too, but I guess I've learned that you can't expect everyone to take the time to write complete sentences and, god forbid, actually use "their", "they're", "there", "it's", and "its" correctly. If you squash conversations on the forums like that it'll just make the community seem unnecessarily sterile.

                  In-game is tons of fun and people that never show up here make it a blast to play, it'd just be nice if that same feeling was reflected on the forums.

                  Nice rig, random-posting-guy. How much did that set you back?

                    Re: New rig

                    sorry, the next rig I build I'll be sure to include more detail. I just wanted opinions, like Ednos said about my os. I've talked to a few folks who said they're 64vista plays BF2, CS:S just fine, and that's all I'm really concerned about. I really got it for Crysis and Unreal Tournament 3 (w00t). Plus mac os x can run CS:S pretty well. So I figured if osx can then surely vista can since it's just a copy of osx hahaha jk I just wanted a 64bit os

                    Why don't you like vista, and YOUR opinion, and not the one everyone else gives "nothing works with it", "its to slow" "it slows down your fps" etc.

                    Ehh. all together it cost around $2100, wayyy to much money. But now that I've played Halo 3, I think I'm going to have to buy a 360 and halo3, unless you guys know of a Halo 3 release for computer any time soon?

                      You've got the specs to run Vista for sure, plus that DX10 card would be going to waste on an XP system once the games really start utilizing it.

                        Vista has two major problems from my point of view:
                        1. It has DRM (Digital Rights Management) built in, and I really, really hate DRM. I'm not even a pirate.
                        2. It's the worst vaporware Microsoft has released to date. It has almost none of the features it was originally going to have; it's barely more secure than Windows XP and is definitely not more stable.


                        It also makes me angry that the gaming industry feels it's appropriate to go along with Microsoft's push of their new operating system. It's a good thing they're already reverse-engineering DirectX 10 for Linux and Windows XP.

                          Re: New rig

                          Yeah I'm not a big fan of it and wasn't planning on getting it for another year or so..but I saw crysis video and unreal 3 video's and my computer could only get about 15fps on bioshock so i figured it was time to upgrade haha. I'll also have another hard drive that runs windows xp..I don't want to go vista only yet..to early lol

                          What is the DRM? I've never heard of it..
