hey i just got kotor and it told me that i can play the game but it recommends a radeon 9200 or better, and i have a radeon 8500, and it says it recommeneds at least a AMD 1600+, and i have a 1700+ so it gave me a warning about that too...

it can run the game but obviously i won't get the full gaming experence!

what am i gonna do? i could buy a new graphics card, but that still leaves the CPU issue, i guess i could get a new CPU too, but that's kinda a hassel....

and would it be better to just buy a Xbox and get Kotor for that??

i'm between a rock and a hard place here, what am i gonna do????

well you have to ask yourself how important it will be for future games?? Do you want to be able to get future games on pc, or would you be satisfied with console gaming??

Well, KOTOR <u>is</u> a great game ... I think you should buy that video card http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif maybe the 9800XT or 9600XT (you get a free copy of Half-Life2) ...

But an X-Box is great too ...

If it was up to me, I'd go with the card; less expensive and Half-life 2 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

well freaky i like console and PC gameing about the same, but Xbox is old, not that i'm saying it's bad, but i don't know if i wanna jump on the bandwagon this late in the game.. in a few years i could have a Nextbox or whatever ... and i've missed 2 solid years of xbox gaming


i COULD get that 9800, but is my CPU gonna hold me back?

If you keep your pc lean and keep unnecessary programs off of it, it will last you atleast 6months more. I would go with the new video card then.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It won't help you to buy a super fast graphics card when your processor lets you down. That will impact heavily on your new card, and you will still run into problems.

Either upgrade your whole machine, or buy an Xbox, and have another 2 years great coming for less than the graphics card, and while you play on the Xbox, save your money for a full machine upgrade.

Or just save for the upgrade and wait.

As for the xbox being old, it isn't that old, console technology doesn't move as fast as pc, and they are only realising the full (or most of it anyway) potential now. Judging from the upcoming games, it might not be a bad idea, if you can't afford the whole machine upgrade now.

silentcell it's just an expression, it means you're in a tight spot, like between two hard places...

If you can afford it, go for the Xbox, and get the best of both worlds. If you need to scrape the money together, then perhaps wait, but given the price, if you have the money it is worth it.

either way, have fun. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
