I Bought a New PC!!
« on: June 11, 2009, 12:07:23 AM »
Which is why I've been inactive for the past few days, I'll let the following explain itself.

My PC Specs:
-AMD Phenom Quad Core Processor 2.2 GHz
-NVIDIA GeForce 9100 256MB
-6GB RAM
-Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
-23" Widescreen Monitor 1920x1080

CD/DVD PC Games I Own:
-The Orange Box
-Halo PC
-Halo 2 Vista
-Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
-Elder Scrolls IV: Obilivion
-Gears of War PC
-Bioshock
-Star Wars: Empire at War
-Diablo II
-Doom 3
-F.E.A.R.
-F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
-Simpsons Hit & Run

Not to mention the TONS of games I can play that are loaded onto my hard drive such as Savage, emulators, and TrackMania.
This PC is great especially since I can run PS2 and GCN emulators now! :D

Anyways, that's all I got. Hell even the forum looks better from the insane resolution.

Uh... hold on... Yea I am using DDR2 :mrgreen:

Most games that I listed that are 2006 and newer only run at 30/60 FPS if I run them at 1280x720 resolution sadly. This thing is a beast, but not a SUPER BEAST. :wink:

I'm still in love with it though.

This reminds me that I need to either fix my computer or buy a new one... I really don't want to put up with the security hassle from Vista though.
Also Mr, is it just Diablo II, or is it the expansion?

Okay...
1) On the past 3 PC's I've had for the last 6 years, I have only run into ONE security threat (On XP SP2) and I knocked that virus out in a half hour, no damage done. I don't think I will with Vista either, if I do quote me on it.
2) Just Diablo II, no expansion.

3) I want to give you guys some rough estimates of how well my PC is running the games I've installed so far... HEADS-UP LONG LIST AHEAD.
NOTE: I've ran all these programs with 1280x720 resolution (which is the data I'll show you below) essentially 720p even though my monitor natively runs at 1080p or 1920x1080 resolution.

  • Savage: Battle for Newerth - 50-58 FPS Avg. @ High Graphics
  • Savage 2: A Tortured Soul - 30-45 FPS Avg. @ Medium Graphics
  • TrackMania Nations - 40-55 FPS Avg. @ High Graphics
  • Crysis - 18-28 FPS Avg. @ Low Graphics (DX10)*
  • Devil May Cry 4 - 28-32 FPS Avg. @ Medium Graphics*
  • F.E.A.R. - 55-60 FPS Avg. @ High Graphics
  • F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin - 25-30 FPS Avg. @ Medium Graphics
  • Halo 2 Vista - 25-40 FPS Avg. @ High Graphics (DX10)
  • Diablo II/Starcraft - 60FPS Avg. @ Maximum Graphics (Duh.)
  • Unreal Tournament 2004 - 60 FPS Avg. @ Maximum Graphics*
  • Unreal Tournament 3 - 28-30 FPS Avg. @ Medium Graphics*
  • Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved - 55-60 FPS Avg. @ Maximum Graphics
  • Doom 3 - 48-60 FPS Avg. @ High Graphics
  • Half-Life 2/Ep. 1&2 - 50-60 FPS Avg. @ Maximum Graphics
  • Portal - 40-60 FPS Avg. @ Maximum Graphics
  • Team Fortress 2 - 30-50 FPS Avg. @ High Graphics
  • Zeno Clash - 30 FPS Avg. @ High Graphics*
*I played this game with a demo.
Note: DX10 Slows all my games down by 1 or 2 frames with a minor graphical enhancement.

The 9100 I have on the motherboard can do most standard graphical effects such as HDR, Volumetric Lighting, Motion Blur, and Depth of Field pretty well, but at the sarifice of 2 FPS or so for each effect effect. Some games can handle it though without a noticeable drop in frame rate. Overall I say this computer is leaps better than my old Compaq, which could only run Crysis, Zeno Clash, F.E.A.R. 2, and DMC4 at 10 FPS tops.

Bonus:
All 2D Emulators - PERFECT
N64/PSX Emulators - 58-60 FPS
GCN/PS2 Emulators - 30-50 FPS

God, my computer can't even run GCN emulators at 30 fps. Stupid Dolphin.

Strangely enough, with my computer (before it's untimely demise), I had a bit of slowdown with N64 emulation, but PSX emulation ran without any slowdown... I dunno, maybe because I only played some of the old games like Crash Bandicoot, MediEvil, and Breath of Fire 3.
