Just to let you all know... I am back in business with a new machine! I upgraded from my 1.2 ghz machine to an AMD 3000+ "So what?" you say? Well... first of all, game play wise it was taking me 4 minutes to switch between maps... Now it is taking me < 5 seconds. Even better than that, the reason I put several hundred dollars into this machine is that I am now back in the business of compiling 1.6. You cannot believe how frustrating it was to change something in code from a 1 to a 0 and then twiddle my thumbs for 7 minutes while the server and client software started test for 3 minutes and then wait 5 more minutes for Wolf to exit again and then a nother couple minutes to get back to where I was in the code. A simple test like that could be 20 minutes of pure frustration! Well NO MORE!!! I am back in bidness!!!

Ok will watch for it. As for my bro he needs to buy a kit and I will assemble it for him. I saw one on tiger direct for around $400 (after rebate) that was a AMD 3000+ system. Maybe Ill have to help him to buy it. His current machine is a crappy Compaq celeron.

I just got done upgrading too. My Father in law sent some good stuff and doubled my video card and a sweet new monitor. He wanted Jaden to be able to play his games. I'm not up there with you guys but I have no complaints. I also installed XP Pro but am avoiding SP2. I put it on another machine and had lots of problems. It was probably because it was pretty slow. Pentium 3. Bah!

Speaking of upgrades:

I have been having ongoing issues with my modem speed and after numerous calls to Time Warner and getting everything replaced by them I find out that my router was the main problem. I just bought a Linksys 8-port router and my speeds have increased dramatically.:) :) :)

Hi Rebel - I upgraded to SP2 and have directx 9.0c and have not had any issues. my speed is fast and graphics are intense. Running a AMD 64 3000 with 1.5 m ram I hear XP is a memory monster so more is better and should help
