Howdy guys,

Well, I have now officially begun my engineering studies.. and I dont have much time for gaming, nor the money for it, but it seems that release dates say otherwise.

BattleStations: Midway, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Brothers In Arms: Hells Highway, HL2: Episode Two (and with it Portal and Team Fortress Two) as well as later in the year, Age Of Conan: Hyborian Age. Here in Australia that would amount to.. what? $400? As well as an upgrade somewhere along the way. Probably another gig of ram.

So what games do you guys suggest. Every single one of them looks utterly awesome, but I indeed have to choose. So any suggestions?

I suggest Age of Conan, I'm looking forward to it, I'm confident it has a Single and a Multiplayer, if it's only MMORPG style, I'd suggest Portal or S.T.A.L.K.E.R., how much does a Gig of Ram even cost and what does it even do, anyway?

I could pay out $50 and get a very decent 1gig if I look about.

RAM = Random Acess Memory (I think) And it increases you computers response time.

Age of Conan looks awesome yea, Im still sceptical though, not too sure if it's a good idea to take up a new MMO in the middle of some studies..

In the UK, about £70. In the USA, about $100. Australia I have no idea. In short it makes your computer faster.

Not quite the right answer, but I won't go into details.

Your PC seems fine. Though the extra gig wouldn't hurt.

Well, it technically increases response time. But there's a reason for that, which is why we have Ram.

I understand, I'm finishing up college (undergrad) now, and there are times I have decide between eating or gaming... a hard choice sometimes... I would suggest Conan for two reasons: 1. I like that genre more than most of the others 2. it comes out later in the year, so you have some time to save a few pennies every month...

Decent rig. Compared to mine that is... ah well. Episode 2 should take absolute priority. I mean... it's Half Life.
