Upgrading for a game that's not out yet is stupid.

Upgrade after it comes out, because by then you know what it'll run on. There were people who upgraded for Halo before MS bought Bungie. There are people who upgraded to GeForce4's thinking they were upgrading for Doom3.

You don't upgrade for games, you upgrade after the fact, when you know for certain it's necessary.

Mmm now you sounds like Fandboy did you miss all this year , Nvidia Cheated in multiple games , moustly in games that are used for benchmarking....

Edit : one driver revision was even altering DirectX files
Nvidia is cheating everywhere they can except they don't give rat ass for comunity so obviously they don't apologize.

MrNasty and rth I have requested several times that you start posting in a mature fashion. Don't make me issue a couple of warnings.

Damn, i can't start Windows98SE, stupid nVIDIA, has to be sth with the card, no doubt about it. Oh, wait a sec, i have an ATI.

The BS nVIDIA receives at the moment is incredible. Maybe some guys should open their eyes? Perhaps both companies are a bit shady after all?
I'm starting to hate my own ATI card with all these things i read about how super it is compared to its opponent. I'm sick of people saying nVIDIA's crap when they are on ATI and probably never even saw an FX5900U in their whole life. Maybe its time only those who happen to have both cards to open their mouth and critisize.

come on vamp, Glowstick is posting pure flamebait. why not warn him too?

nobody with a shred of objectivity who is familiar with what's happened with cheating would ever compare what ATI's done with what nvidia's done.

What he said was not flamebait it was the truth, ATI have been found "cheating" before, they just handled it a lot better. I fail to see this flamebait so just do as you are told, k?

damn those *$%^# CS players

I dont understand something, aren't the "released" leaks only the code and E3 demo? and there may be another "release" of a 2 weeks old version of the game?

so, how do you guys know the current state of HL2 development?
or there was another "release" that I've missed ???

Got a proof ? That was only a stupid rumor, as far as I know. The last person I saw reporting on it here had a nickname with a X, some brackets and was a complete moron.

Sorry, I just find it hilarous for anyone to call Glowstick a "noob"!

I might not always agree with Glow, but a noob he's not...and on that one he was bang-on correct.
