Re: Cheating in Games

Hmm. QC, I can understand how that would make you mad. It would make me mad too. However, I know very well that although I could (in theory) cheat in online games, I'll probably be found out very quickly - and what am I supposed to do then? ;) I'd rather cheat in games only in single-player, off-lin...

Re: Cheating in Games

I agree. There's nothing wrong with cheating in single player games. And I'd like to take this a step further: some games cheat at you. Take, for instance, Civilization III - I played this many years ago, and it irked me (while playing on a not-very-difficult level) that while I was still in the bro...

Re: I can haz new shiny?

The good news is video cards aren't as expensive as they used to be. The top-of-the-line cards still cost a lot, but you won't need the "latest and greatest" video card to play most games, including DA. That's great! ;) The Radeon 8550 (at the time) cost me somewhere between $100 and $200 Australia...

Re: I can haz new shiny?

OK, I'm not going to go into the overclocking vs. non-overclocking issue! ;) I'm not particularly interested in overclocking - I'm aware that it exists, and have read about how to do it. I have never actually tried it because I know the risks are great, particularly for beginners like me, and I prob...

Re: I can haz new shiny?

Thanks very much for the advice! :) I didn't mention what kind of graphics card and size of power supply there is, because I simply don't know - the advertisement itself does not say. I have my own graphics card which I intend to use, presuming that the motherboard will allow it - a Radeon 8550. If ...

I can haz new shiny?

Looking for recommendations - I'm looking to upgrade my desktop to another one. (Please, no recommendations for laptops - I'm definite on keeping my computer as a desktop for the foreseeable future). I've narrowed down my search to a local store that I've had a history of good service and reasonable...

I wonder if anyone's interested? ;)

Avast, mateys! Hoist the mainsails and arm the cannons, fer today we plunder our way across the Spanish Main. Set sail for Tortuga and hard a-port, ye scurvy dogs! Eyes a-windward, prepare to board, and remember: WE TAKE NO PRISONERS! ARRRR!
