    Um OK, Welcome Back I Suppose.......

    Well Spikester. I've read your system specs, and I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but there's just not that many people here that are going to be as impressed with them as you seem to be.

    Incidentally, the word that means "to have knowledge, insight, or understanding" of a topic or concept is spelled, "know". "No" means just that, "no". Phonetically "en-oh", no. :rolleyes:

    I'm sorry, looking at your specs, I'd disagree, unless you're talking about playing older games. New ones you could handle on lowest settings though.

    I think that telling people that you have a "gaming computer", begins at the 7600GT, 8600GT, or 9600GT Video card level. "Insisting" that you have a gaming computer, begins at the 8800GT or 9800GT (or better) level.

    Mid price cards such as the 8500GT or 9500GT are better suited to home theater PCs. Which is not to say you can't play some games with them, but they're far from optimal.

    The newer games such as Crysis and Assassin's Creed would probably not play satisfactorily.

    You could play games pretty decent on monitors smaller than 22" I suppose, still on low to medium settings.

    hahah.. thanks much on the replies..

    im glad to know..

    somehow i have this gaming pc..

    i have my laptop.. but i dont do games there..

    only here in my desktop..

    im planning to move on a greater heights..

    ahaha (as more people say)

    more like 220 series..

    but im more concern on the cooling system of a unit..

    thats all..

    a unit that can last 24 hours without overheating..

    ehehe..

    anyways.. im an anti-overclock..

    ~~ much powers guys..!

    If you're anti overclock, heat should rarily be an issue. Unlike me.

    Go to near the top left of this page and edit your profile. Go to Edit System Specs. Fill in your PC specifications and make sure you choose "YES," you would like to show other members your computer specs. Save and exit.

    I could probably run most of the newer games on my newer system maybe not at the highest settings but they would run

    Still working on it though heh Will probably build a better one anyhow in a year or so anyhow

    My PC should be up for gaming.

    I can't really read my computers mind, but I think that my graphic card has, uhhhhhhhhhhh, degraded.

    I remember playing Crysis at max settings on my Vista with AA set to 4x. Now, a year later, I can barely manage Crysis on a freshly installed XP with AA set to 4x on the same resolution and settings set to medium. 2 years of building computers should tell me that it is just a hardware problem. Looks like I won't go buying XFX cards again >.>


    I'm no computer pro, but hopefully, two new 4850s will solve my gaming dilemma.
