First gaming mouse.

Today I got some money so I decided I finally going to get a decent mouse,so I got this one (MS Sidewinder x5) for $29 USD and its a really great mouse.Before this I was using a acer mini mouse that came with my brothers netbook and it was really uncomfortable to hold and use,sometimes I would press both clicks at the same time and would get killed in Modern Warfare 2.

Really bad RAM (cont.)

Well I got the new ram(2gb 667Mhz) and It is best 40 dollars I have spent on this PC.The games now load and run better then ever(no hiccups).So because now I meet the 2gb minimum RAM requirement for this game(see the picture) I decided to buy it and It has been pretty great so far.I really cant see why people compare this game to Modern Warfare 2 so much It is very different.

It runs at 30+ FPS average and when there is to much going on in the screen it drops to 20 but it is still very playable at lowest sets.

Really bad RAM.

I just found out that my computers RAM is actually clocked at 200 Mhz!!(maximum 333 Mhz).No wonder I get some hiccups when I am running around in MW 2.So anyways im gonna get 2gb 667Mhz sticks soon(wich is the maximum size and speed for my motherboard)

Ill let you know how it turns out.

Another new game.

So a friend of mine just gift me this game and guess what,My PC is under the recommended settings but i can still play it at playable framerates (about 20-25) in lowest settings.

This game is GREAT!!! I always wanted to play the first one but since I do not own a 360 i was never able to play it.I think its gonna be a while until I get a different game because this game has me HOOKED!

New game!!

Well I have been hearing allot about this game from a friend so i decided to give it a try and I have to say its a pretty fun game to play.I play it online with some friends and I had one of the biggest laugh attacks of my life!!.We were mining for some ores way under ground and we both where chipping away at the wall when all of a sudden i hear this SSSSSSS  noise when i look back there was this Zombie guy jut standing behind my friend and I though someone else had joined the server then the zombie blew up killing my friend instantly and sending me flying back into a pool of lava!!  good times.

Well anyways the games runs around   35-42 FPS @ 1280x1024 res with the fog set to far.

Forgot to mention

This blog is going to be about the experiences I get with running games on this PC.
Here is a list of some games I am currently playing what frames I get on them.

Modern Warefare 1/2: I get about 45-60 FPS on Medium 800x600 res on both games.
Garrys Mod 11: Always above 60 FPS with everything on max and 1280x1024 res
FallOut 3: I get around 45 something FPS with almost Low settings.

the rest of the games are some free to play games that are nor really worth mentioning.

My "gaming" computer

This is the first computer I have ever owned and I bought it for around 550 USD at the time it seemed like a good deal because i had no idea that I could build a way better computer for the same price.Here are the specs.

Athlon 3800+ @ 2.4 Ghz
NVIDIA 8400 gs 256mb ram (overclocked)
1gb 667 ram!!!
160gb HDD
and some cheap 450w power supply someone gave to me.
oh and I removed the DVD drive because it would BSOD every time i used it so now i buy all my games on steam.

and this is what I use to play games even the modern ones.
