    My PC is not high-end

    (Celeron 1.7GHZ
    256 DDRam
    Geforce 4 MX440
    CD R/W
    DVD-Rom)

    and I don't have the cash to keep on upgrading it... Some games run really well, like Max Payne 2, while others run badly like Splinter Cell, so I think that I should leave my PC to playing the odd classic game like SOF 2 or Deus Ex, Internet, DVD Encoding and Video Editing and leave my consoles to the games (Xbox, PS2, Dreamcast) That way, all I'd need is just a PS2 chip (both my other systems are mod-chipped) then I wont have to worry about expensive games, or having to upgrade, seeing as most PC games come out for Xbox...I think I prefer console games to PC... Good Idea/Bad Idea?

    good idea in a way and bad in a way. but the gd thing is your pc will run stuff for about the next year and a half maybe 2 years on mediam settings IF you double your ram (whast 20 well i cant tlk exacly i cant aford that ) still for games like max payne u will want them on pc because of the mods so dont go only getting stuff for ya consouls

    If I had to make the choice I'd trade one of my consoles in then with that money buy a better graphics card and double the ram... in the long run your pc will serve you better than any console will ever.

    Just my two cents.
    I wasn't going to buy it in the first place, so me downloading it for free isn't losing them any money.

    So if games like Mafia and NOLF 2 run choppily now, then with 512 meg DDram they'll run perfectly? (even with Windows 98SE?)

    i have only 256MB RAM, and most games work perfectly with me. Then again, I have a 128MB ATI Radeon 9200 grafix card.

    dont get xp unless you plan on upgrading your ram, im on window xp and i have 256mb ram and games run choppy that ran fine in 98, so if ur into gaming and u want xp i would suggest buying 256mb more ram
