It's not really a big surprise that this planet would be in the game, makes sense to help connect the game to Kotor, but it makes me wonder that there is going to be more then 16 planets in the game.Posted in: SWTOR News

SSd's will drop in price every year, eventually being the same price as regular hard drives, since that is where all the R&D money is going into for storage. Games will always be designed with 1 video card in mind until the consoles start using 2 as default that will never changePosted in: Podcast

Directx 11 really only becomes good when it is the only thing that is supported but if you take Dirt 2 into account the difference between 9 and 11 is really negligible it's only a really small improvement. We're going to need to see the next generation of consoles or crazy developers like Crytek to kill off Directx 9.Posted in: Podcast

Well really you can just use Bioware's most recent games to judge what kind of system you should be aiming for with just their recommended settings since TOR won't be needing the most recent hardware. It's also not hard to beat the settings at a cheap price.Posted in: Podcast
Dragon Age Origins
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz processor or equivalent, AMD Phenom II X2 Dual-Core 2.7 GHz or greater
Ram: 2 GB (XP), 3 GB (Vista/7)
Graphics: ATI 3850 512 MB or greater, NVIDIA 8800GTS 512 MB or greater.
No point using ME 2 since it actually requires less in requirements only because they had ME 1 to work off of to optimize better.

it does run WoW that was my primary game until my PSU blew and got tired of using my parents computer, which only had a Nvidia 6100 on board graphics taking 64mb of ram to make 128mb graphics memory, for 6 months before I broke down and bought my computer.Posted in: Podcast
Yes the technology is upgraded but really most of it is over rated when it comes to the actual needs for the software. When it's coded well you don't even need mid range hardware. Bioware and Blizzard are masters at this. But really that's my cheap skape opinion for making my monies worth of hardware last.
With the new 6 cores Intel's coming out with theirs in march but they'll mostly be $1000 minimum with a cheaper model coming out sometime later to compete with AMD's 6 cores but the problem with AMD's is that those 6 cores are only really going to be able to compete with Intel's current core i7 series considering they only added 2 cores and haven't changed their core architecture yet. AMD's 2011 processors are the one's you should be keeping an on in the future mostly because there hasn't been much info released yet but they're supposed to be like Intel's Clarkdale CPU+GPU on the same chip but since they own ATI they would actually be able to play the new games. Also the CPU is supposed to properly integrate both CPU+GPU together since the Intel version technically has both parts separate.

oh one suggestion for people building a computer buy your parts in December especially during black Friday and boxing day week. You can get killer deals that will save you a ton of money.Posted in: Podcast

My first computer was a Atari STPosted in: Podcast
Great games and great performance at the time. I used it till 1992 or 1995.
One thing I don't like about your computer advice is your computer life expectancy of the computer. I personally build a computer to last 10 years without upgrades or until it burns itself out. My first computer lasted me 8 years 2001 to 2009 of being left on practically 24/7 and even with a Geforece 3 64mb and 512mb ram could still play a large amount of games.

why downgrade to XP, they fixed the majority of the problems with windows 7 and it's the same price.Posted in: Podcast
