Roscoe replied to DuckReconMajor's topic in Everything ElseAhhh I love this sort of question! I banged out a definition of it awhile back (years ago) that I still think works to a degree. "Love is a bond that draws people together (in various ways)" I'm not arrogant enough to think that is a universal definition (or description) for "love" of course. For the time being I'm pretty happy with it, though. :) As for better to have never loved? Nah, it's a good thing to experience, I think, at least once. An aside: Man cannot survive without woman. This is a fact. So, help man survive! Get a good woman. :) What? You don't need a woman to be happy? Man will survive without your individual contribution? Excellent! I wish you contentment in your path!
Roscoe replied to Mr. Freeze's topic in Everything ElseReally nice video! Thanks for posting this! I find it inspirational, and makes me hopeful I can build something of my own for cheap, too. Been planning on building a new one for awhile, now. I doubt that $300 will cover the cost of buying a new monitor, though. All my crts are dying on me. :( The car argument is kind of out of place, and you probably don't give a shit about that! However, I see where you're coming from. Got to have the time and inclination (two very important things) in the first place to do something like build a PC from scratch. Me? I love doing this kind of stuff. Not hard to make time for things you enjoy doing. ;) Doesn't seem like you're interested at all in building a pc. Do you think you ever would be, given the time?
I've been told I should come here with this. Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. Hardly visit these forums, but I do find them to be valuable.
Anyways, I am currently formulating plans for building EDIII (a new computer). I haven't built a computer for five years and my choices in parts now, compared to then, are mind boggling and somewhat overwhelming. It looks like I can build a computer that's at least twice as fast for about half the price of what I built this one. I want to build a new one because I am starting to feel the pull of newer games, but this computer (EDII) has no chance of running them.
As for budget? I'm not looking to spend more than $400-$500. I know I want to get 4gb ram, and I know I want at least a 3ghz clockspeed processor.
I need your guys' help! You can help me by answering these questions:
Are there products (specific brands/makers) I should stay away from? For instance, Nvidia vs Ati, Intel vs AMD, etc.
Are there products (specific brands/makers) that I should definitely go for?
How important is it to get a high memory video card? How much is enough when it comes to video cards? How important is clock speed on video cards?
I will be searching out advice from elsewhere on the web, but I figured I'd ask here, first.
Anything else you guys can think of to add would be great.

Good job, malaka. Keep it up. Way to ruin a thread by jumping into some gratuitous trolling bandwagon. I've had my share of pointless and unprovoked flamewars, but this one gets the cake.
And with his budget, he can afford a used G5, at most :-p
Who are you calling a malaka, paneleiro? :) Let a guy throw a joke.
Anyway, seems like AMD takes the crown for the budget market. I'm surprised.
Forgive me for resurrecting an almost certainly dead topic, but I wanted to put my measly two cents in, too. SpeakEasy.net says: 0.79 mbps download 0.73 mbps upload Ping: 98 ms 173 mi I thought mine was bad, but mine certainly isn't the worst on here.
Seemed very playable, even in its present state. I really loved some of the tight quarter 1on1 and 2on1 battles, like with the Knight and Baron. But perhaps that's why it's called "Claustrophobia" ? I'm of the "kill all monsters before completing map" persuasion, so it pained me in some parts to leave some monsters behind simply because I didn't have enough ammo to kill them all. I was unable to complete it without cheating. I feel so dirty. After dying at that part with the demon with the nice ass *wink wink* about 10 times I had to give up and cheat. Maybe put something more to hide behind? And, as always, put a chainsawwww somewhere in there, dammit!... j/k
