Wink Gaming advice

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)

I don't think your being serious, but I did laugh me arse of all the same.

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

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

Agreed.

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