amd??? sorry won't go with that trash ever again- way,way too many bad experiences with that company. that company is on my permant ban list along
with: epson printers, sony laptops,optima computer drives of any sort, roller mouses, and honda motorcycles. AMD (and cyrix) IMO is still a tecnology
theif copying the INTEL folks and cutting corners to TRY and boast of higher troughputs than the real developer of the tech- ever wonder why . any
such bosts turn out to be highly inflated over any real use of the system (kind of like EPA milage on cars now-a-days)
I told the same thing to my buddy who just spent nearly $6000 US on a completely top of the line Alien Ware game system- now he has the same problems
i warned him of- the system is completely unstable- generates so much heat he has to run his AC in his apartment (this is Colorado- and in the WINTER)
why do AMD systems generate soooo much heat???? because they crank up the voltage to the processor- an old overclockers trick-
Yeah, my buddies system will support BF2- but he might play all of 30 minutes before the system crashes. complete POS. If i had had to pay for the
system Alien Ware would be on my permant ban list as well. He is continuously jealous of my system becasue it has never crashed- but its primary
purpose it to run CAD- and CNC- gaming is just its second function for some rare down time. I cannot see changing out the video card if it will not
get me ahead on my CAD as well-not like those cards are very cheap.
XBOX- ???? sorry game consules are for fat loser types who sit on their couches stuffing their faces with greasy potato chips - using their guts for a
catch basin of the fallout- to be consumed later. the same folks who don startrek uniforms to watch the show and belive WWF is a real sporting event.
Actually though, game consules have no upgradability- no use other than gaming/entertainment- the controllers suck and something along the lines of
Morrowind or Oblivion- you just cannot use any of the consumer modifications/expansions etc. besides it won't run my CNC or CAD.
