1GHz was met, how long ago? I still see no games requiring a gig...
Exactly. These days it takes longer before your system "barely meets requirements". The only issue these days is how far ahead you want to be for extra fast FPS, not if you will be able to run things. Perhaps that is what Cow meant because I really don't see games requiring a 1.6+ GHz machine in the near future. Maybe 800MHz in a year though.
better avatar than the last one, tenric.
thx Had to edit out the Christmas stuff. Here's where I got it:
My desktop resolution is 1600x1200@32 therefore I like all my games to play at that resolution.
Yes but most people are using 1024 or 1280. Only a certian number do 1600. So with you the issue is FPS and res but not system requirements for the game. You surpass those and have your own requirements.
bah, me and my brother have the same video cards (Ti4600). he runs a 2.5GHz P4 and I run a 1GHz P3. he gets like 3 times the frame rates in everything.
games may not require more than my system, but they run WAY better on a faster system.
That's what I said.
omg omg ogm omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg
I've been running this same comp here for over 2 years now and it's still playing everything out there just fine. You could take a comp to 3 years trouble free, I guarentee. Just a few upgrades here and there (Extra RAM, replace cheap bad parts, I upgraded my video card, etc)
i'm not content with running the latest games in 1024. i need 1600 with AA and antistropic filtering.
That wasn't an "omg omg omg omg omg omg omg you both have awesome video cards omg omg omg omg"
It was an "omg omg omg omg omg poor grammar omg omg omg omg".
I like being able to play games at something better than 800x600@16bit (my mac).
and how old is your mac.
Hmmm...I think I got it December 2000 or possibly 1999. I got it following the introduction of the G4 after the Blue and Whites were discontinued (savings++). G3 450. I had upgraded the rage card to a radeon and the ram to 512mb but it's still uberslow for anything other than webserving and work.
don't you know? cow has an old yosemite G3.
//edit: same time posting as cow
...and I mimicked you because "omg omg ogm omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg" isn't exactly perfect grammar either.
Nos, I beat you by a minute
