hiya riz, nice to see u finally managed that update Smile
ut3 is indeed dying already, iCTF is anyway, dunno about the rest.
So yes, TF2 is the game now.
Vi and Shings play it, Lag and me do and some of the "newer" members from our CSS phase play it as well.

The dutch divison has even discussed reviving OAP with TF2, so who knows where this might be going Smile

Nice to see lag n sera about! took me a while to save d money, i blame d weed habbit, slowed saving .. a little.

is TF2 on stream? will need to get it. Was looking at quake wars, a bit like TF with classes http://www.enemyterritory.com/ i guess not many ppl playing that either. Too many multiplayer games are around these days each having small share of pll.

The comp needs more work done to it, new PSU. Is it worth changing to 64bit XP or vista, Lag? Did you have problems with games not supporting 2 GFs in SLI or not supporting 2 cores? 8600GT is cheap , mite get another one.

What motherboard did u go for? i got Asus M2N delux sli, that will need BIOS flashed too. Sometimes wonder if better off with xbox 360 and no husstle BigGrin

omg so many questions Wink

- tf2 is on steam yes
- quake wars is hardly played and is a bit of a crappy battlefield lookalike
- i tried 64bit xp, didn't get much better performance and was hell looking for the right drivers
- never tried vista, imo XP is still the best for gaming
- no problems with dual GFX cards anywhere, the game just sees it as one card with better performance
- there aint many games that actually support dual-core, both cores will be used but not fully
- got a Gigabyte mainboard here, K8N-Pro SLI if I'm right
- sell ur 360 and get a ps3 :P

the game is sweet! reminds me of Worms Mayhem for some reason. Spamming rockets on Goldrush map was fun.
