Hey Guys,

I'm considering getting games from now on that have Nvidia chips built into them.

I heard from friends that Black Hawk Down is particularly good.

Any advice on the quality of the game and if Nvidia makes a difference?

Thanks

Barry

Don't know about any "chips" in those games, but the Nvidia logo on the box doesn't really mean all that much. Just another marketing ploy mostly. I never had any problems running them on my Radeon 8500. (still hated that card)

This "used" to be a pleasant forum to visit.

I'm ashamed of being part of a forum that treats people like this. :rolleyes:

Agreed. :(

Anyway, barrym, Black Hawk Down is supposed to be pretty good. I would recommend trying out a demo first though.

Nvidia chips built into them......nice. They fried or baked. lol

I think he's talking about the logo guys. "The way it's meant to be played," which to put frankly, is a bunch of bull**** at the moment. Perhaphs in the future Nvidia can actually accomodate by having a unique set of features in games, such as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

And in other gaming "rumors" today, Doom 3 is X-Box exclusive. lol....what a bunch of crap. This is why I don't read warp2search.net too much anymore. They seem to post every bit of garbage they find on other sites without any evidence.

Barry, If You let us know Your system specs, We could better inform you of which games You might like.
For instance, Your video card make and model, along with your central processor speed. The amount of Memory too.

My video card is a visiontek geforce 3, it has an NVIDIA chip in it.
My processor speed is 1500MHZ (1.5 GHZ)
I have 384 MB of memory (RAM).

What annoys me, is that M$ are apparently offering id a huge sum of money to sit on the PC version until the xbox conversion is done. I really hope id decline the offer.

I thought the demo was rubbish. Thats why I never bought the full version.

Ive never seen the movie either, but I hear its good.

Maybe the people who've seen the movie like the game.
