Did either of you watch the new RE movie? I heard it was decent.....
Just got done playing the Crysis Demo its absolutely astounding, most lifelike shooter game I have ever seen. Awesome graphics and responce. Download is kinda on the enormous side 1.7 gigs, but if you have the hardware you need to check it out.
Abit IN9 32X-MAX -nVidia 680i
Intel E6600 OCed to 3.2 GHz
4GB DDR2-800 Patriot EPP Memory
EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB
4 Western Digital 500 GB HDDs in RAID 0+1 for 931 GB formatted (1496 GB RAID 5 I'll migrate if I ever need the space)
Samsung SyncMaster 226BW -22" widescreen 2ms response time
I'm running at 1680x1050, with the settings all optimized to High, the possibilities are Low, Medium, High and Very High. I have not tried Very High yet. The game setup wizard uses high for my hardware. Very High is probably for GTX and Ultra models . Fraps shows me averaging about 34 FPS and the ingame stats (r_displayinfo=1 from the console) has it at about 32 fps.
My other machine -
Intel Petium Dual Core E2180 2GHz - OCed to 2.4 GHz
4 gigs DDR2 Patriot EPP Memory - 2 X 2GB 5,5,5,12
XFX GeForce 8600GT 256 MB -OCed to 720 Mhz CPU-1800 MHz DDR3 Zalman Cooler 38C idle 45C load
500 GB Western Digital SATA HDD
SONY SDM-HS73 17" 5ms
Runs optimized by the game at medium, 1024 x768, 35 FPS in game reading. But its my Media Center PC I have the other machine for gaming, I'm planning on upgrading to a 8800GT 512MB now that they are released, or possibly a GTX for the other machine and move the GTS to the media center. Whatever I do it will be after the holidays.
If you'all would like I can post some screenshots of some of the ingame action or maybe a video, not sure what is acceptable to post link to on this forum yet
By the way the Medium still looks awesome a bit less detail but still a cut above other games.
* Some AM2 Motherboard for this processor:
* AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+
* 2 x 1GB RAM, not sure, maybe 800Mhz, DDR II I think
* nVidia GeForce 8600GT 256MB VRAM(256 bit, I hope I wont have to take one with 128 bit RAM ), DirectX 10, Pixel Shader 4.0
* Well, for the hard drive, probably 320GB or 350 eventually, because I don't need to store something very big or for some data base or something like that, so that should be enough.
Could be better.. but oh well, life... you know.
