I would like to know what are You gaming on people.

Would be nice to have little nvnews statistics so we know how different users here are. Just of pure curiosity :cool:

For me its PC. Had a 360 but it proded and I had to sell it. Now I am on my pc only and thinking maybe to get 360 or Ps3....

I normally game on a PC, an Xbox and a PS3... recently though I sold my fat PS3 to get a slim but never got around to getting the slim, so I don't have a PS3 right now, and I never use my 360, so... pretty much all PC lately.

PS3 offers a lot more for the PC gamer as a supplement... more exclusives not on PC and blu-ray movies as well. I have had a 360 since launch and turn it on every 6 months, play the arcade games I missed, then turn it off for another 6 months.

Can't remember the last time I booted my 360 (I think around march for some guitar hero party with friends), so I voted PC only

Yeah, I nearly bought a slim when they came out but eventually I came to my senses. :D I still may down the road.

As a PC gamer, though, the 360 just doesn't offer enough... no blu-ray, very few 360 exclusives I want (GoW2 would be nice, but hardly worth the price for one game). PS3 has far more exclusives that never come to PC, and PC has every cross platform game the 360 has.

360 is probably the better system if you only had one gaming console and no PC, but add a decent PC in there and PS3 is definitely the right choice.


I picked PC Gaming Only as that's what I am. My kids play Wii, but it's more toy than console.

Do you have an SLI motherboard? If so you could throw another 8800GT in there... Your rig isn't that bad, really, depending on the resolution you want to game at and what level of AA you want, you should be able to play most things decently well on medium settings.

Yeah. My mobo supports sli. The problem is I have Inno3D oced 8800gt 512. And its impossible to fint exact same one. Or can I get any 8800 for SLI? How does it work on general? Can YOu explain more? I bought this mobo for SLI but never really considered it.
I am playing on 1680x1050 and mostly I don't mind having no aa so no performance hit from this

All you need is the same chip with the same memory. Any 8800GT with 512MB will work in SLI with your current card. That was fixed a while ago IIRC.

Also what games are you playing? My 9800GT (essentially an 8800GT Superclocked) runs most games I play at 1920x1200 easily.

My current gaming interests:

PC (CS:S, TF2, COD4)
360 (GOW2, Guitar Hero occasionally)
PS3 (Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, GTA:IV, Demon's Souls, 3D Dot Game Heroes soon)
Wii (Sports Resort, only with friends)

So I can even get 8800gt512mb for example from asus not oced and it will work ? thats some great news! What performance would I gain?

It works quite well now but at 1680x1050 some games are lowering to 30 fps. And GTAIV is just barely playable at any res

Only pc here. If I go to someone's house and they have a console, I throw it out the window.

360 doesn't play games. It's simply to go for postage rides back to MS once a month.

For most games I hate the 360... maybe football and racing it's okay...

Yeah, you should be able to throw in any 8800 GT 512MB and it will run both cards default at the slowest speed of the two (but then you can probably overclock them back to the original speed of the faster).

You should see some performance improvement, but I'm not sure how much based on the other parts of your system. However, even if you only see a marginal speed boost, you should be able to increase your texture, AA and AF settings and see no slowdown. If you're already getting 30FPS, it won't get any slower, you'll just be able to run 30FPS with 8xAA, 16xAF and HD textures.

I want a Wii back just so my girl and I can play New Super Mario Bros. together. She was mainly only a gamer when she was young, and she mainly played sidescrollers like that.

I mainly game on PC. Lately I've spent most of my time with these:

PC - Left 4 Dead, Risen, Dragon Age
Xbox360 - Forza Motorsport 3, Tekken 6
PS3 - Killzone 2
