Ha, ha, sorry for the rant but DJ's uttered words of blasphemy in a PC gamer's world.
There's an ongoing battle between those who play consoles and the PC guys.
Anyway, DJ, didn't I just read in you Gun Video post that you got a new PC with 8 gigs of RAM? Let me know what model it is and I'll look over the specs and hook you up with some free game demos you can download from the internet. You'll need a big monitor, though, to fully appreciate the quality - I use a 24 inch HD Gateway for my gaming rig. Or you can hook it up to an HDTV.
A new game demo just came out that might interest you - it's called Tom Clancy's HAWX, and it's a combat flight simulation game.
Wait, 8 gigs of RAM? You must have gotten a Mac, 'cause for a regular store-bought PC that's usually an overkill and a 32-bit OS, which most Windows-based PCs ship with, can only address a maximum of 4 gig. Did you get a MAc with a pair of Xeon processors? If that's the case, the games will be a no-go.
I did get a new computer, and VERY sorry for hitting a nerve!
I've never really used it for gaming, but my 16 year old son uses everything in the house for gaming. My original posting (sorry again!) was made because the PS3 interface is really cool, strictly from an observer's point of view. I spoil the kid and his older sister, and he has the PS3 and a Wii, and I have rigged the house for high-speed wireless, so he can use both his laptop and all of his smaller machines (PSP, Game Boy) to surf.
I use my computer for work and consulting. In addition to flying, I provide aviation technical advice to several large companies. That's why I'm always on-line (that, and posting on here...). My last desktop finally crumped, so I replaced it with an HP (get a big discount from them) with the AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-core (2.5 GHz) and 8GB of ram, 64 bit Vista OS. I hate Vista, btw. I do have a couple of Macs, but I need at least one MS computer to handle the proprietary software of a couple of my clients. I'm not a programmer by any stretch, just a high-end user. Some of what I do requires a bit of processing, so I have a six computer network at home, that includes both Macs and PCs.
The new box has both upgraded graphics and sound, but it's not a true gaming machine. I have played the latest Tomb Raider in it, believe it or not...
