Thread: Hottest Pc Games This Summer!

  1. #1
    Just to name a few.....

    Doom III - Aug. 3
    Madden 2004 - Aug04
    Half-Life 2 - Summer 04
    Call of Duty: United Defensive - Sept04
    Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault - Sept04
    Rome: Total War - Sept04
    The Sims 2 - Sept 04
    Star Wars: Battlefront - Sept04

    With all these games coming out, what kind of rig should I have? Currently I'm running a:
    Gigabyte 865pe mobo
    P4 2.4c
    2x256 ddr mb pc3200
    ati Radeon 9600pro

    Is this good enough? If I overclocked my system would that improve the graphics?

    u lucky bastard u have a 2.4C which can overclock to 3.4Ghz easily

    even if u dont overclock u should be able to run the games flawlessly

    It looks good, other then the video card. HL2 and Doom 3 will only be able to play on medium settings.

    The rest looks good.

    Im only looking forward to Madden 2005 (getting it on ps2), Sims 2, and maybe ill check out Rome: Total War.
    Need a cheap/easy way of modding your xbox? Check this out.

    if I overclocked my video card and maybe my cpu(risky) would I be able to run on high settings? but seriously is the x800 worth the cost or should I settle for a 9800pro?

    been reading up on tomshardware.com and the x800 outperforms the 9800xt/pro by over 100% on some benchmarks

    value for money wise think youve got it. maybe the 9800 is good value now. i dont know the prices but i reckon the x800 is for people wth more money than sense (cant wait till i get one )

    im lookin on ebay for a 9800pro card...they range anywerher from 100usd and up which is not bad, some are 128mb and other 256mb. Is there really any difference between the two?

    In regards to HL2 coming out this summer, I read on gamespy that it might be pushed till next year. And another hot game coming out this summer is STALKER.

    get the 128mb. the 256mb one is slower slightly.
    Gaint Antispyware is the #1 greatest Spyware/Adware cleaner ever created, I recomend it to everybody, even if you don't think you need it.
