  1. ...no, they are in no way similar. HK-47 is a robot, but evil at heart. Inuyasha is a demon, but is actually a ver kind person. The problem is not mixing sci-fi with anime; Mobile Suit Gundam, Macross, mix both. That's not the issue. The issue is comparing two things that are not alike at all. That's just weird.
  2. I really do need more memory and a CPU, but I can still wait a little bit.
  3. It doesn't matter... yet. If you don't have a PCI-E or PCI-X slot, then an AGP is fine.
  4. If youa ssk me, Nvidia cards are better, but not because of their cards. Rather, than drivers are easily more moddable, and people have more experience teaking their drivers. After som stumbling with the 5xxx series of cards, Nvidia is probably getting back on track with the 6xxx series. I have ATI card, and ATI cards no longer deserve reputation they once had; they have great cards with great drivers, but Nvidia narrowly beats, very NARROWLY, in a pinch. Oh yeah, because game developers often have more experience with Nvidia drivers, they tend to drivers for Nvidia cards. And that's why many games a little bit buggy on ATI cards.
  5. Well, It really depends. From what my friend has told me, it's best not to go to onderon last, and Korriban requires some heavy LS or DS to enter the optional area. note: not including mandatory planets So if male: 1. Nar Shadaa 2. Onderon 3. Dantooine 4. Korriban if female: 1. Dantooine 2. Nar Shadaa 3. Onderon 4. Korriban
  6. KOTOR 2 takes place 10 years after the Mandalorian Wars...that would mean the Exile is 14 when he becomes a general <{POST_SNAPBACK}> That makes me wonder. I know, from the timeline of jedi civil war, it was 5 years to kotor. But to be honest, does anyone have confrimation how long the Mandalorian Wars were?
  7. If you ask me, PC's never have enough memory. I would consider upgrading them first, if anyone is interested in getting new parts.
  8. If you ask me, I think it IS possible for the Exile, the bare minimum, to be actually age of 24, but not any lower. Any less would be impossible, because that would imply that he could be in a jedi, a general, at the age of 12 or 13.
  9. I just want to say that, this board is quite small, compared to the bigger, more third party boards. If you go on GameFAQs, IGN.com, they have bigger lists of glitches and bug, if Obsidian Ent is still interested.
  10. Blind loyalty is for "the blind". I will get whatever suits my needs the best, and whoever makes the maker the better product. If AMD makes the better product , I buy from AMD, if Intel made the better product, I buy from them. It's as simple as that.
  11. To be honest, I'm not quite sure what the issue is. I have reads the other link, but I'm still confused. Can somone explain it bettert?
  12. KOTOR was made to be a single player game. It was never designed to be Multiplayer. IF it is multiplayer, it is not KOTOR anymore.
  13. The bond thing is incorrect; the force bond doesn't kill, doesn't injure, but you can still feel pyschological pain.
  14. Both! You can show one after the other, but make sure that it isn't mandoatory to see one of them.
  15. I don't find thatt at all surprising. I know many people who are male that play female characters in games, although they do it because they wanted to see if there are variations in the storylines for the games.
  16. Of course, but overall performance still lies within a CPU upgrade; I'm not just saying just for gaming. If you think about it, a system with a faster cpu that has a slower video card will usually outperform a system with a slower cpu that has has a faster video card, because the first one isn't bottlenecked. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> But what about special effects? With a mediocre cpu and a powerful graphic card you re better off. ANd you need ram... Take HL2 for example. Cpu is not a big issue there. Ram (best with 1gb) and a powerful gcard(for shader/aa/af) work wonders there. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> like I said, "usually outperform". I didn't say ALWAYS. Most game don't even take advtange of the latests features; if you take that into account, at least 80% of games are likely to run better on a CPU faster system.
  17. Damn, I got the regular guide. I'm going to get the new guide tommorrow.
  18. Well I wouldn't say its the BEST sequel out there. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I haven't played all the sequels to all games.But no other sequel has made skip sleep, food and social life like this one. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Then I recommend you play Max Payne 2: Fall of Max Payne. It's a huge improvement over the original. It's a FPS, so I'm not sure if you would like the gameplay, but it is still a quite an amazing game.
  19. Of course, but overall performance still lies within a CPU upgrade; I'm not just saying just for gaming.

  20. For example, does changing Bao Dur from a tech specialist to a Jedi guardian affect whether he still is skill oriented, or feat oriented?
  21. a) I bought a system with 128mb ram in 2000... If somebody sells a system with 128 ram only...then this is cheating! b) If the game allows you to use low res textures you can play with a 32mb vram card...otherwise, 64mb is the minimum. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Yeah, 128MB is still the minimum; I never said it is was the norm The Norma is around 256 to 512 MB nowadays.
  22. I suppose the former is my case. I have a Radeon 9600 XT 128 but it can only run at 4x because that's the fastest my motherboard supports. However, it's important to note that while upgrading the GPU is relatively easy, upgrading the motherboard is usually not recommended for hardware neophytes. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> If you saying 4x, as in AGP 4x, don't worry. AGP 8x DOES increase your fps, but only by ONE FPS! (w00t) So, you don't really need to worry about that; it's the motheboard chip performance , stability, and compatibility that matters the most.
  23. Yep. Those are my priorities too. I have read some really good things about the latest NForce-powered AMD boards, and it seems that having a good CPU and motherboard are the tipping factors on game performance, since I don't really believe there's much difference in performance between ATI and nVidia. Right so, what does this have to do with the original topic anyway? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Well, CPU's are more long term investments; they are always making better video cards, and they are only getting better anyway, and if it's not huge speed improvements they offer, it is the latest features, which most games developers don't use for a while to come; I already have a ATI RAdeon 9500 Pro, and I'm fine with it. CPU's on the other hand, are getting faster, but with each speed leap, it gets harder and haraer to see the improvements, so if I get a good CPU at an even better price, chances are I don't have to worry about it for years. And good memory is pretty cheap too. And for those who are getting newer and better video cards; you might take a hard, good, long look at your motherboard, CPU, and memory. A good video card that is bottlenecked by slow/bad motherboard/CPU/memory is not very useful, while a system with good motherboard/CPU/memory with a slow video card should run fine, save for features. Your point? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> That isnt that much I managed to get 2 1gb Ram sticks so now my computer can run most games on Ram alone :D <{POST_SNAPBACK}> That's great, but how many memory slots do you have? If you have at least four slots, woulldn't it be better to have four sticks of 512 MB RAM? If you have three slots, two sticks of 512 MB RAM, and one stick of 1GB RAM? And oh yeah, I just want to also, VRAM is usuall not very important for most games. I think they are certain driver settings that forces games to use up all the VRAM first, and then use system memory.
  24. Naw, the mininum today for system RAM is 128 MB RAM, due to the availability of ones are that good quality and very cheap at the same time. Video ram is at least 64 MB RAM. Technically, most games can handle fine with only 32 MB RAM of VRAM anyway, but it is not too common anymore. If you ask me, for most basic gaming, a fast, up-to-date CPU is better long term upgrade, unless you already have a good one, or have a really bad or old memory or video card. I prioritize as follows: 1. Motherboard 2. CPU 3. Memory 4. Video Card
