Re: NVIDIA opted out of PS4!!!

I find it more entertaining that his "new" PC has just a P4.

 

Why would anyone buy a PC that only has a P4?

I prefer playing on consoles because it's more simple.


You kudos him? Shame on you. If he gets kudos, I deserve 20 (since my PC is, according to him, 20 years newer)

 

I buy console games also if I enjoy sitting on the couch. Sitting at my computer hurts my back.


Trust me, it was an accident. I actually just figured out how to unkudo! Smiley Tongue

 

Yeah, same here. With consoles I don't have to worry if games work or not. They just work! 


Well technically I don't have to worry either, I have an awesome PC in which all games work XD

 

But again, it just depends on the game. I played Tomb Raider on PC because it looked nicer. Plus I was too lazy to go out and buy the game. And while I could've just downloaded off of PSN, my PS3 download speeds are much slower than my PC.

 

 


I don't know much about computers so I would rather stick to consoles. lol I know that games look and preform better on PC but I really don't know how to build a computer. I also like that PC has backwards compatiblity which is an advantage over consoles. The lack of backwards compatiblity is my biggest complaint with consoles but still, I feel much more comfortable playing on consoles! Smiley Tongue lol

Well, the process of building a computer is surprisingly simple. I had my friend over (who's a total computer whiz) help me with the process.

 

As long as you know where to put each part, the whole process takes 1-2 hours.

 

And B/C is nice. I play my PS2 games on my PC via emulator (And no, I don't pirate my games. I literally insert my PS2 discs into the DVD drive. It's nice because you can upscale games to HD, except for textures)

Besides, go look on Yahoo Answers. People keep asking why their laptop won't play games, and then they list Intel HD Graphics 3000/4000 as their GPU (obviously not enough)


It depends how the OS handles the integrated graphics on newer Intel processors.  Intel HD 3000/4000 is basically a graphic subprocessor that shares the same die as the CPU on Intel Core i5 and i7 processors.

 

It is this graphic subprocessor that allows for Windows 'HDMI over Wifi' and Apple's Airplay Mirroring.

 

My MacBook Air runs on a Core i5 with Intel HD 4000 graphics, and it is quite capable of playing many current games.  That's basically because MacOS 10.8 is built specifically for the processor, whereas Windows is designed to run on a variety of systems, most of which completely ignore the fact that the processor has built in graphics.

No matter how good it is, no matter how cheap it's games are, no matter how many exclusives there are on the PC, I'm not buying it. Never got into PC gaming, and now with their invasive DRM (RAM Scanning, Hard Disk Scanning, Steam/Origin/Blizzard Spyware) I won't touch it with a 10-kilometer pole either.

My cheap laptop and Desktop from cobbled together parts is enough for "PC use." Consoles get all the games.

My last four desktops have been custom rigs from the ground up.  My most recent 'masterpiece' was built around an AMD Phenom (first generation) Quad-core with a SLI'd pair of GeForce 9800s (1GB GDDR5 VRAM each).

 

It really is a pretty simple process.  You just have to keep in mind what you want to do with it, and buy the pieces you need for the machine you want to build.  For example, Intel processors won't fit on system boards designed for AMD processors.  They have different pin profiles.  Similarly, not all Power Supplies will work with all system boards.  And invest in a decent anti-static mat and wristband before you do anything...

Ok dudes, it's p4. It's 13 years old, makes since, came with 2 gig ram, sata hd. IDE DVD roms, i put in a 300 something nvidia card, took out a128 mb amd card. The amd card couldn't play eq good but the replacement 320 could and was able to max wow graphics out, lich king I had to start lowering the settings though. Still almost, 25 buck upgrade. So 13 years old and still whooping this generations consoles.
Its whatever God says it is, try not to let Satan trick you or lie to you. A lie can be twisted so much but its still a lie, same with tricks. Also know noone is perfect except Jesus, we all will mess up from time to time. So try not to be, to hard on yourself or others.

Maybe my new one is better, I know it has dual core. I shouldn't have to even concern any one with it, it defiantly beats the consoles and its 5 yrs old.

So if it's "whooping the consoles", why are you here?

You obviously don't care about the consoles, so why post on a Sony forum?

 

Oh wait, that's right, you're trolling.

Disregard my statement.
