    @3 What does my OS have anything to do with it? I have Vista on my laptop, and personally I like XP much better than Vitsa.Some of us can’t afford Windows 7 just yet ya know.

    I spent all my PC upgrade funds getting a solid state drive, a quad core possessor, a ATI Radeon HD5970 card, a motherboard, my G15 Logitech keyboard (the steelseries is now in the trash) and over 2TB of memory for it. I also still have my old 250GB hard drive for all the crap I save, and not to mention the 22″ HD monitor (which I have yet to get because I am not suppose to know about it).

    So, what else doesn’t make me “a PC gamer”?

    @Stephany Nunneley – Spider’s statement was fairly flipant, let’s not get all worked up over it.

    If you have a 5970 and a SSD, 2TB??? then usually you have enough £ for windows 7.

    @5 Buying an ATI card.

    … I had to do that. I HAD to do it.

    @6 Yeah, you’re right. I shouldn’t. I just hear that a lot from certain people, mostly a male I play online with -maybe he’s just chauvinistic. Dunno. 90% of the people I play online with are male, so I get some grief from time to time, so I shouldn’t have taken that as an affront. I like spiderLaw very much :)

    And no, I guess I “could” have afforded it, but mind you I bought all that months ago, and the other person with financial say in the house didn’t want to spend the extra money at the time for the OS upgrade because he didn’t think we needed it. So, my friend who is studying to be computer engineer took the rig home and did some sort of work around for XP for me. Now, 5 months later, I honestly can’t afford it to buy it. I got all of my PC guts for less than $1200 thanks to bundles along with instant and mail-in rebates. I’ll get W7 after the new year, so I can make use of DX11 and my lovely monitor (which I am technically not suppose to know about yet). But until then, XP is fine.

    Either the PC specs, or a 300 dollar PS3 console, sure you wont have the graphics, but will run just as good.

    When you say 2TB of memory, do you mean ram or HDD space… because 2TB ram is kinda impossible…

    Windows 7 is pretty awesome though. Vista was garbage and XP was amazing, but it’s showing it’s age now… and it can’t play Just Cause 2.

    It’s also worth noting the MP will chug tons more than the SP. UE3 is super light these days, but Frostbite is still a behemoth.

    @10 HDD space of course :) I never get rid of anything. Ever. (insert scary cackling here)

  12. Yoshi

    Well I don’t have enough money to pay £100+ for Windows 7 :(
    I should get SP3 while I wait though I guess.

    #12 4 years ago
  13. Hunam

    I got my Windows 7 via university though, so it was free.

    Well… aside from the £18K student loan. But that’s not real debt right?

    @ Steph
    I meant nothing by it. I was joking. Internet sucks for that reason i guess.
    Your angry reply was a fun read though.
    But I am sorry. I didnt mean to make you angry. It was just a joke.
    You are probably more of a PC gamer than i am anyways.

    I figured you would have upgraded to service pack 3 by now though. I’snt it free to upgrade or am i missing something?
    I perfer XP over Vista and Windows 7 too BTW.

    You are in Cali too right? Ever get all stressed out too much, just hit me up and i’ll split a Bowl with you. Best stress reliever.
    LOL, J/k again

    Lol steph, you got the crazies woman!

    Also, windows 7 is a fucking wicked OS. Neeeee problems with it so far.

    ALTHO one of my games it just doesnt like…I think maybe i fucked up the window handling code or something…but it just minimises on launch occasionally. Anyway, Windows 7 ftw…what game are we talking about?

    Which OS works best for you is a personal opinion obviously, but does XP do DirectX 11 now? I thought it was only Win7 did DX11. So for newer games I’d imagine you were missing out on quite a bit graphically by still using XP.

    #16 4 years ago
  17. freedoms_stain

    XP can’t do DX10 or 11 and never will.

    #17 4 years ago
  18. Stephany Nunneley

    @17 is right. Just DX9. Well, there was no sense in getting an OS with DX11 if I still had a non-HD monitor. Maybe I will ask for it for X-mas since I think the upgrade deal is done and dusted on that end from MS.

    @14 No, I am the one sorry. And no, I am not in Cali but I’d have a beer while you had, whatever it is you’re having :D

    BUT as far as MOH is concerned, this is something I am seriously considering getting. Not HUGE on a war shooters, but it appeals to me for some reason.

    theres only been a few dx10/11 only games. i recently upgraded to windows 7. an oem license is only $90 bucks. “only”.

    If I was going to update to Windows 7, I would also have to keep a partition just with XP on, I’m used to it that much :P Plus then I can still play some older games :)

    By the way is it better to buy the upgrade to Windows 7 or the full new version?

    @Steph Yeh i’m the same, even though I’ve got BFBC2 though this appeals to me plus hopfully i’ll be able to get MOH for free because I was unfortunate to buy APB.

    its best to buy the full retail copy if you can afford it. if your trying to keep windows xp an upgrade will overwrite it.

    @21 Thanks, I found this store/website that sells all kinds of software/hardware etc and they have Windows at the best prices, just need to research them now. Hopfully they are genuine because those prices are pretty awesome for Windows.

    BTW If anyone is wanting SP3, I believe you can download it for free at the Microsoft Windows website.

    those look like oem license. never herd of the site. i kinda want to jump on the xp disc at $50 myself.

    #23 4 years ago
  24. Yoshi

    Yeh I was thinking of buying XP SP2 Pro and Windows7 Pro :P
    Same i’ve not heard of the site before so thats why i’ll check it out before I buy.
