  1. Curious. Can't seem to recognize any names in the forum threads.
  2. Funny. We've never seen the map freeze bug but get server crashes. Go valve!
  3. You guys experiencing a lot of server crashes? DOH has been very unstable the last month. Just curious to see if anyone else is experiencing this. Not the map freeze bug...actual server crashes.
  4. heard it was a pointless movie.
  5. right. i have no qualms with evangelicals if they just do that..evangelize. but once that steps into laws that are used to govern the nation, the evangelicals have stepped over the line. It's one thing to share you experiences and viewpoints. It's an entirely different thing to force someone to believe you and follow you by making it a crime or illegal to do otherwise. There is a backlash against christians these days due to this exact behavior. So if you are of the evangelical type that supports the behavior of enacting religious christian views into law, you are doing the OPPOSITE of what you want because it is turning people away from the church.
  6. Absolutely. God could exist. But then he/she also could not. Because 90+% of the world believes in some god doesn't mean that god exists. e.g., the world is not flat because we all believe it to be. Human beings in general have a need for explanations of the unknown. Human beings must also believe that there is some meaning in something. They also must feel purpose and they are also arrogant. e.g., we are made in the image of god. Religion provides a means for explanation anything that you may want to be explained. You may not like the explanation, but it always provides one. Even if its as simple as saying, "it was gods will". But not everyone feels this way. Not everyone needs an explanation. And some things may not have an explanation but rather just...is. e.g., maybe something doesn't have to have a beginning and an end. Why the search for the beginning of the universe? Maybe it was always just...there. This concept is too hard to swallow for most of us. therefore we explain it away but saying something created us...or there was a big bang. These things are why I believe religion is a deeply personal relationship between a person and god. It is different for everyone. And the same can be said for those who want no relationship with god. They simply dont believe in god. This leads to my last point. Religion as a personal relationship is what I believe religion was meant to be. It goes outside its boundaries when one person's views and religion is being forced upon another through laws that effect everyone. That is today problem. Evangelicals are trying to force feed their belief system on the rest of the world through common laws and through enforcement. I believe it simply goes against the idea of religion itself and hurts us all.
  7. Religion to me is a man made construct designed to provide risk/reward scenarios to suffering people. Basically, if you believe in god, you go to heaven, if you don't, you burn in hell. If there was no heaven nor hell, there would be few who would follow religion. It's basically a philosophy created to keep people in line. Some say there is no morality w/o religion. These are the types of people who further the cause of using religion to keep people in line. Fear is a powerful tool. And it is used often in religion. That is why the poor and destitute are typically the ones who are the most devout. While the weathly and educated typically call religion a farse.
  8. Why even mention cal-i or cal-whatever. It's fragfest. If I was going, I'd like to choose teams using a drinking game. Then schedule a match 4 hours later.
  9. On the original topic: I don't consider that stacking. Obviously, if a score is 5-0, the top player will move over. It was also on aztec...T side needs more help than the CT side so the T side should have a little skill advantage. If you consider yourself a mediocre player, you would have switched to the T side as soon as it became 3-0. But you didn't. You left it up to one of the top players to switch when it became 5-0. Score probably quickly became 5-5. Since you were probably there from the beginning...you won 5 rounds and lost 5 rounds. It sounds about right. It just didn't go back and forth every round like one would like.
  10. The PS creator has emailed that to many people. Their is a bug that was introduced sometime in March that messes up logs, doesn't track all kills for all players and it hasn't been fixed it It's a major bug. I wouldn't hold your breath on the fix. If it's released, good. If not, no surprise.
  11. And if the 10000W amp is $10000 today but when you buy those 5000W speakers later, the 10000W amp is only $5000? So...in planning for the future games I get to play, I'm going to forego the flat screen TV now? Even thought it would be easy to just put in the second card to make SLI at 50% of the cost later when I actually need it? Hey man, its your money.
  12. How about this? You have a 10000W amp but have 50W speakers. amp = system speakers = games
  13. Going 6800 SLI now is a waste of money. I'll further shep's analogy. You can get a ferrari. And then you can put a $4000 exhaust system on there that gives you no net speed increase or extra HP. Honestly, I'd spend that $4000 on a flat screen tv.
  14. My opinion? Complete waste of money. SLI 6800? Tell me a game that you wouldn't be able to play at 1600x1200 full throttle when combined with a fx-55. It should be a game you'd wanna play. I say screw the SLI. Get 1 vcard, replace crappy cpu with the fx-55. Bump the RAM up to 2GB and lose 1 of the hard disks.
  15. psychostats has some problems with missing entries and such. it'll catch you at some point.
  16. Oh right...u went from a 2600xp and I went from a 2700xp. Duh.
  17. I got the same type of results fatty. Around 15fps for me. You seem to have gotten more.
  18. Opinions are like....heh, you know what i mean. Some people don't wanna spend more money right now. A chip is a simple upgrade path. Doesn't matter if the next generation chip is about the same price. I bought my 3200xp knowing the a64-3000 is faster yet the same price. It makes more sense to me to wait. It aint that much better. If I'm gonna buy a new mobo, I'm gonna wait until I can upgrade more. I'll get a pci-e mobo, get that pci-e vcard, ddr2 and get the best cpu i can get for under $200. And then the cycle starts again for me. I don't spend oodles of money on my computer. I buy a mobo, use it for 3 years while upgrading small components like cpu/ram then when its time for a new mobo, i upgrade to the next generation of everything. I'm not interested in cpu marks or whatever that thing is. I dont care that instead of 12110 I would get 12330 on some performance test score that means little to nothing to me in real life. If it takes my computer 0.23 seconds longer to boot...so be it.
  19. You need to default back to the lowest speed ram. also, it gets worse, you'll lose dual channel capability. 1GB is fine in my opinion. If you really need that extra 512MB of ram (video editting, photoshop work, etc) then use it. The increase in ram for something like this would give you more in "overall" performance feel than the hit for going single channel and slower ram.
  20. Don't you have a fan and heatsink you use for your 2600? It'll fit fine. Just use that one. If you don't, I would just get the retail 3200+. It comes with a fan.
  21. I pretty much have the same settings as fatty before I upgraded. I had a 2700xp, 1GB of ram, 6600GT I used to get problems in cs_office, de_aztec, cs_italy and de_chateau. Low fps and very choppy, especially during nade attacks, window breaks, and bomb explosions. (italy's fruit market) I now have a 3200xp, 1 GB of 400 mhz ram and a 6600GT and I no longer have any of the problems above. To me, that's noticeable. When it goes from 25fps in italy to 40fps in the toughest situations, I'm happy. Will Fatty get the same boost? I would imagine so since our specs are so similar. Honestly, I would have upgraded to an athlon64, but I'd have to spend another $350 on mobo and case. I have a silent music pc in the form of a shuttle xpc. It's not like I have a gigantic atx case.
  22. I don't believe in going from 2600 to 2700. Complete waste of money. There is a big difference between the 2700 and the 3200. First of all, mhz doesn't mean as much as it used to. The 3200 is a barton core, meaning, it has more cache. As we all know, cache and a fast core are critical for gaming. How do I know this? Because I upgraded from a 2700 33mhz to a 3200 mhz 400 mhz cpu. Noticeable difference. I don't do benchmarks, or anything time consuming. Instead, I play a game. If I see a difference, then its good enough for me.
  23. Why would you upgrade from a 2600 to a 2700? According to giga-byte.com, your motherboard doesn't exist. They have a 7VT600, 7VT600P-L, and a whole bunch more, but no 7VT600L. At least not that I can find. In any event, it looks like any variant of 7VT600 supports up to 3200+
  24. Replacing the RAM to faster RAM of the same quantity will give you NO NOTICEABLE difference in performance. Guaranteed. Now...if you are into measuring the system performance using all these little experiments, maybe the numbers will be better. But I guarantee it. If you notice a difference in performance replacing your 333Mhz RAM with 400Mhz RAM, I'll buy you a beer. As for going from a 2600 333Mhz CPU to a 3200 400Mhz CPU, you will get about 10 more fps. Those jitters you see when you are in the market on cs_italy and someone blows up the fruit? Well, that'll go away.
