Ha, took me a few months to figure my log in info.
Dudes, I'm still alive!! It's been a few years, amazing how fast time goes by. I think most of you guys were nerdy little high school kids, some junior high. Now most are out of college, married, hell I bet some are even divorced!
I'm still single living in the SF Bay Area, still working for a general contractor as a job super. Only difference is I'm actually retired from the carpenters union so I'm receiving my pension and working full time, double dipping for the win!
I took a break from gaming, it was an escape for me to hide away from real life during some tough times. But I still miss CSS , never could get into CSGO, just wasn't the same. I am going to get the computer up and running again and play one day. I haven't even turned it on in a year or 2. Between the iPhone, iPad, and work laptop, don't need it!
Well, just wanted to pop in and say hi guys, talk to youz wize guyz again soon. And yes, I still have the trans am, it's still a garage queen, it's up to around 850 miles, still under 1000! Not bad for an 18 year old car!
Take care guys, thanks AO for keeping this place up and running!
Ha good thinking. Starting them off right. Do you still play cs?
Omg an old man spotting!!!!
Old Man doesn't die!! (he just smells that way)
Nice! your 15 seconds of fame are now up so get off the stage! JKJK I was trying to count, looks like it hit 4 cymbals and a keyboard? sound about right? either way, nice shot.
I had my 15, actually more like 6 seconds of fame a few years back when I was on the Fox NFL pregame show. Fox was on the jobsite filming our project engineer who was also a SF Niners Goldrush cheerleader. They did a piece on how some of them are not just a bunch of dumb rah rah girls, some had some pretty good jobs. They had a close up of her at my plan table and her and I talking about the job. I totally forgot about it until Sunday morning I got a call from my aunt in Utah all excited asking if that was me she saw? I didn't see it live but the cheerleaders mom recorded it and made me a copy. I have it in VHS somewhere, in some box!
let's here the other 15 mins of fame, Thraxy, didn't you appear in porn somewhere???
I wouldn't doubt that we could find Shitty on some Hillbilly Hand fishin episode!
nothing since may 8 in this section, shameless bump of my own fucking thread.someone's been drinking again/still!!!
Steven Tyler of Aerosmith's daughtershe looks like she could be Liv Tyler's little sisterWho?
Well I need simple, the Gigabyte card does not look too simple, could be, but I'm not taking a chance, thanks for the suggestion though.
As for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560Ti, sounds like a good card, is it worth it to go the next step up? and what would that be, the 570 or 580? (i didn't find one with a Ti)
i don't mind stepping up to the next level, it's in the budget, i just want to make sure it's compatible with my system and I don't have to upgrade the power supply or something like that
sorry for highjacking your thread Justin, if someone wants to split it and put it somewhere else go ahead, just let me know where it is.
Budget? not sure what the range is it for GC's. I would think for $200-300 you can get a top of the line card eh? I found this http://www.amazon.com/PNY-1024MB-Graphics-Battlefield3-Memory/dp/B006OJN49K/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1328231634&sr=1-4
then I look at this http://www.newegg.com/Store/Category.aspx?Category=38&name=Video-Cards-Video-Devices and it just makes things harder to comprehend. I don't mind spending 3 bills if it is going to make a difference then only spending 150.
System- I have a Lenovo that I bought about 5 months ago
windows 7 64-bit
Intel i7-2600 CPU @3.40GHz
12.0 GB RAM with room to add up to 4 more (16GB total)
1.5 TB hard drive
AMD Radeon 6450
ok, I'm up for getting a new graphics card, I would like to get a high end one, can you tell me what I should get? and will it be a simple install? i want to be able to play this game with youz knuckleheadz! I want something that won't be outdated in a weekI'm thinking, even though I have anew computer, and it made a hell of a lot of difference in css, i may still need to get a better graphics card. I have the AMD Radeon 6450, which I thought was pretty good, until i just went and read some reviews, sounds like it's a pretty good "cheap" card (under $50). like I was telling Justin, i went from 20-25 FPS average from my old computer to 120-200 fps average in css, but in BF3 it's like I am getting 5-10 fps, can't play, I rarely see anyone before getting killed, even if they are right in front of me!BF3 has set the new bar in game graphics.
