Luckily, 1 GB of RAM is no longer a HUGE investment. On my most recent system I found that I saved the most money downgrading to an Athalon XP 3000+ from a 3200+. (it even overclocks up to the 2.2 Ghz frequency of the 3200.)

Newegg.com is da place if u need da RAM.

I tell you one thing there are alot of computer hardware ignorant people here, lol 3/4 gig ? meaning 756mbs...right....not smart....wouldn't be running in dual channel for one, a big performance hit, or are you talking about the gross ammount of ram some of these people are claiming to have?kind of odd ain't it, but hey we got people who are going to be running this game with cad rendering cards so I guess this ain't such a big deal, to run your memory as dual channel an even ammount of dim slot must be ocuppied 2 or 4 (not 1 or 3) and the ram that occupies these slot should be matched in size aspect....256mb/256mb etc... but not 256mb+512mb etc...

Father Time - I think he meant 3 to 4 gigs of Ram. By the way I also had 756 mb ram on my old p4 1.7 - it was cheaper adding 512 to my 256 than buying a gig at the time, and I was getting a new system soon.

I wouldn't pay to much attention to anything comming from some who is going to use a cad card to to play a pc game, they are a dime a dozen, usually young kids who want to fluff their system's specs by going out to a pc hardware vendor's site and find the most exspense components which happen to be graphic editing cards and listing them here on sites like this in an attempt to impress people....goofy.

Ok .. so why didn't you get an AMD dualcore... ??.. the cheapest (X2 3800+ ) beats P4 D 830 in all tests..

http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2484&p=5

I'm not saying that the Intel is bad.. it's just that AMD is better at the moment..

Hopefully intel will improove (just look to ATI vs nVidia) so we ca get more and harder competition... = better and cheaper CPU's to the customers..

[EDIT] ok they are even on Office production test.

every PC i have had has been an intel. We can argue about which is better (PC or AMD) all day. However, in the end which ever is better is only slightly better. For me i am comfortable with intel because i have always had an intel. for me it was a safe in vestment. I know what i am getting. In the end i know that I have a very good system that runs everything great. Which is better? I dont care. My goal was not to have the best sytem. My goal was to have a great system.

When i buy new PC's i always try to get the most out of my money.. so that will be AMD for cpu and it used to be ATI for videochip, but now nVidia has better price/performance so i'll prolly go nVidia, if i was buying right now. This comming from an ATI fan.

If intel make better CPU's (for gaming) so they beat amd in price/performance i'll go for intel.

In my opnion intel has faild to deliver great CPU's for a long time. (And this is stated by several (atleast one.. :P) hardware sites..) AMD is curretly beating the **** out of intel (read a little better) .. but people continue to buy intel. If sales dropped a LOT intel would have to make better products to compete .. but they don't have to.. people buy intel anyway.. because it's intel.. know trademark and all that stuff..

I would suggest waiting until it comes out to see how it runs on your machine. Maybe you will need a 6800 instead of a 7800, or an x800xl instead of an x850xt, also the prices may be down by next Feb.

I would like to know what you need to run GRAW at 1280x1024 with everything maxed out and still get 60-75 FPS.

I think this game will be very HW intensive, because of size and details (urban detailed maps), a.i., animation, physics.
Because of everything they are adding to it that most PC GR'ers dont really give a **** about.. Worst part is believing this game will be worth upgrading for and knowing some PC's that were upgraded for GR2 will problably struggle with this, we will find out after a couple more delays i guess http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif.

Maybe i should have put it like this:

But also because of features they are adding to it that most PC GR'ers dont really give a **** about.."

Better?
Because they can create the best graphics and animations, physics and efects but if the core elements and features of what made the series arent there the game will die fast.

I get the sick feeling that this game is going to be a port, just like COD2 was, if it is a port then it really doesn't matter what you have because it will suck for sure.....

Well, it all points to the PC game being developed seperately with GRIN's own engine (whatever that is) so the games might share features and concept but the PC version should turn out diferent, hope to see how good GRIN's stuff really is soon...

Oh and my current old spec:
P4 2.4,
1536 gigs of ram (2xkingston/1xsamsung 333mhz)
40 gig seagate barracuda 7200
xfx 6600GT AGP (500/1000) stock.
SB audigy2 ZS
460W psu.

So yeah my old mobo has 3 ram slots and doesnt support dual channel so there:P, i also happened to have 1 extra stick lying around http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif.

I doubt the toaster will be able to run GRAW good enough for my liking but it ran Doom3 and Far Cry at 1280x1024 resolution and normal/high settings though these games were not worth more than 1 run each, given the current amount of s***y games coming out for PC, every publisher going after the 360 and PS3 and a new OS in the orizon im really not interested in investing in HW atm...
Then there just arent many PC games in the making that interest me to justify investing on a new high end machine, its a sad reality http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif.

I built a new computer this holiday. All for under $1000, whee.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
3GB DDR400 (1GB OCZ, 2GB Corsair)
GeForce 7800GT
300GB Seagate SATA HD

I don't think I should have many problems.

I'm really looking foreward to this game. I just hope it's not completely different than the original, but I'm not getting that vibe from teh screens that I've see which scares me :/

Pentium 4 Dual Core 2.8ghz
2gb Ram
256mb 7800 GTX
160 GB hard drive.

It ran the HL 2 lost coast at 1600x1028 on full settings with 50-60fps. I had just upgraded from a 3 year old laptop and my jaw almost hit the desk http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. So GRAW will look awefully pretty, but will it play the same? One can only hope.

Games that are released on both PC and Console differ greatly. The most apparent difference is that the console game is n00bed down (made easier) than the PC game. Console gamers can't aim as fast with their controllers as a mouse/keyboard combo. A great example is the aim helper function on just about every FPS game that's released for those boxes. And your TV set has much crappier resolution than my badazz monitor.

I prefer to ride my bike all by myself. The console gamers prefer to keep the training wheels on. Most console games I can finish in one day. Not true with the PC games.

Those are the facts, Jack.

Lets see new comp that will run it and run it well on PC about $1000+ or a 360 for $399.99 i guess the choice is up to you...

P.S. you guys are seriously too into braggin about your comp specs, wanna know mine? 433Mhz, Win 98, GeForce 2... lol! Consols are better, a new one comes out ever 2-3 years not 2-3 seconds..

And do you know why console's come out every 2-3 years? I'll clue you in to a little known secret.. It's because the PC market drives the technology development that consoles use. Score 1 for the PC. And last I checked it's pretty close to impossible to browse the net with a Xbox .. Score 1 more for the PC.

Not to mention that the 360 is "missing" +/- 90 usable keys on thier little "paddle" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. I have played GR2 on the Xbox it was fun, but only because it was not on the PC. GR and RS on the console is a joke and almost enough to make a grown man cry. Imagine being able to switch to any weapon, change rate of fire, and issue orders with only one key press instead of navigating menus brough up by pushing and holding a button. Yeah, Score 1 yet again for the PC.

So PC > console. And if you hate PC's suck to much why do you need it to post on these forums or is that too hard on the super 360 with 12 buttons and no web browser?

I have to admit that I never got a chance to play GR online alot. I have played before with friends and they are some of the most memorable online games that I have played to date. I Can't remember one good xbox live match that I've played other than the obnoxious 12 year old's. Games like halo play great because they are what they are. Not Pseudo representations of something that is great.

And PS.. your Sucky PC that you have might just run the original GR. You can buy it for cheap, try it, then come tell us how it is inferior to it's xbox port.

I'm really a nice person.. honest. Stupid people jsut annoy me :/.

They say that you can hook a k/b and mouse to the Xbox 360. I guarantee that I can shoot faster and more accurately than the best console player using the mouse-k/b combo. Controllers n00b down the game just because of their design. They aren't as quick or accurate.

Just cause you can not afford a good commputer to play the newest games, doesnt mean you have to make excuses that pc sux.

That all i got from your post, its hard to belive soeone who can afford a nice computer - would buy a xbox360 instead.

Why do you think consoles are so popuular. Its because any jo schmo can use it, and its only 200-500$ . When a good pc video card is 200-500$ .


Gtfo and go play console.

I like how you say that I have limited pc knowledge when I have been working on and with computers for more than 20 years. Also, I never said my computer specs were leet. By the way, as I said, you must be jealous. So let's leave it at that. I also noticed every 2 months you keep buying stuff for your computer upgrading processor and stuff, lol. What a waste of money you saying somebody doesn't know a foot from their forehead. Look at you spending all that money on what. Getting the best card for 2 months come on man grow up. PS, and stop telling other people what you think is best for them. When you don't really know anything on what they use there equipment on. I've seen how you treat others on this message board and I have to say it's not in the nicest manner. Show a little edicacy and be respectful of others. Either your telling the truth or lying cause i noticed that on 3dmark06 you have a 7800gt with 256 mb of memory so ha on you.

Everybody on an extreme in the "PC vs. Console" argument is a ******. Each is better suited for certain types of games, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses.

PCs have the definite advantage for First Person Shooters and Real Time Strategy games. The keyboard/mouse combo obviously simply works better for the kind of precision and speed that is required for these games.

Consoles work and just feel better with mostly everything else, like action/adventure games, fighters, platformers, RPGs, and such. Sure, you could play most of these if they had PC ports, but playing on the keyboard is completely insufficient, and unless you've got a stellar, stellar gamepad with excellent hardware and in-game support (and as far as I know, the only one that has even begun to come close is, guess what, the Xbox 360 wired controller), the experience is direly lacking.

In terms of graphical quality both computers and consoles have almost always been completely on par with each other. Sure, a new graphics card might come out a few years after the newest console and be tons better on paper, but there won't be any games taking advantage of that for a while. Plus it costs somewhere over $400. Also, there IS an advantage to console's "stagnant" hardware. Developers work with the same components and setup for the lifetime of the console, and so continually improve their efficiency, thus improving the graphics. Late generation console games typically still stay level with their PC competitors.

In multiplayer it's pretty tied. Both have online play. Both have LAN support, although PCs have a slight edge. Consoles are much better in that you don't have to move a thing if there's 4 or less people playing (I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy packing up my computer).

Pricewise consoles have the unarguable advantage. Consoles start out the price of a high-end videocard and continue to drop over the years, while new video cards continue to come out at the same price. But due to the console efficiency, the graphics are mostly the same. Plus, a PC can be weighed down by the processor, RAM, hard drive space, or what have you.

I have a gaming-grade PC, and every major console back to the Atari 2600 except for a PSX. In an extremely rough estimation, my gaming time has been split probably 85/15 console/PC. Actually, that's probably a bit generous to the PC side. But, whatever. It's split like that because quality games come out far more often for consoles than they do on the PC, and currently there's 3 platforms on the console side versus the 1 for computers.


My point is that taking one extreme of the argument is stupid, pointless, and bad for your gaming mojo. You're missing out on plenty of awesome experiences on the other side, but if you want to be that closed-minded, then it's your loss, not mine.

I agree with Double-S- on this one. Each side has its pros and cons. I also play on both consoles and pc's and enjoy both of them equally for different reasons. Both have their fair share of good and bad games. However, from what I've experienced, a lot of times I'll play a game that, in my opinion, isn't that good (PC: Counter Strike, XBox: Halo2) but is fun because they have a lot of good, competitive players. And for me, good competition only adds to the enjoyment of games.

My buds think it's a hoot that they can cream me in halo on the console but once we boot it up on the PC and play online I get a perfect score, I dislike controllers because you can't aim for ****. I tried COD2 on the Xbox360 and to make a headshot I had to lightly tap my thumbstick back and forth to try and get the head lined up but it didn't work so I had to let the AI kill him. On the PC version it only takes a split second to line him up and pop him. I'll never buy a console for a FPS.
