It came. I'm happy.
You can't be an avatar thief, I already stole this avatar from jake on another site he posts at.
P4 2.4 GHZ with 533 bus
256 MB PC 800 Ram
80 GB Harddrive @ 7200 RPM
DVD ROM and 16X CD-RW (Other numbers I forget)
Geforce 4 Ti4600 64 MB
Harmon/Kardon speakers, 2 satellites and Sub
Using my old monitor, standard keyboard, old mouse, etc etc.
Yuo giev now.
I would've got 512mb. I'm feeling the limits of 256mb. Both battlefield 1942 and asheron's call 2 max me out.
I'll be getting another stick soon.
$ was an issue too. After rebate, comp was $1068.03
Also, the speakers are a real highlight for me, my old ones are 9 years old.
That's not a bad computer. Hopefully you have a nice monitor to go with it.
It's my old 17" Hitachi. It works great for what I do. As far as Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers, and Monitor, I only upgrade when I need to.
I'm like the mountaineer of the Computer World...The guy with the beard that lives in a cabin in some frozen wasteland with lots of trees that does something only when he needs to.
Like this guy!
shouldn't that be 128MB?
Depends on the card maker, I've seen 64 meg Ti4600's.
This is a 64 Megger
it won't make much difference unless you are running games in extreme high resolutions (1600+).
I normally run in 1024x768. I like to max out Q3 though with everything possible, just to see how quickly I can make my system crash and burn
Quake 3 is actually kind of old now. The really high-res textures in new games like UT2003, and moreso Doom 3 and Quake 4, are what will stress memory and bandwidth.
Eeeeew. Which means you wont be able to use the best quality textures on big games.
With the exception of the test version of UT2003 out right now, what else am I going to test on besides Q3? I'm running 3DMark 2001 right now.
//edit: According to 3DMark, my graphics card does infact have 128 MB Ram
