  1. If you need to retrieve your license key for either Optimize or Erase, you can fetch it at our customer service page at https://www.pcmatic.com/support/
  2. What? What are you talking about? It's been an on going joke between him and myself.
  3. Get the new card then. The 6800 GS would play all three games great. The AI is so much better in BF2 than either 1942 or Vietnam. Of course, I mainly play BF2 online so there isn't the AI to worry about.
  4. I wasn't suggesting that he buy a new one. I'm just saying at one time that card was a good gaming card. And that time as after Battlefield 1942 was released. If you can afford to get a newer card, definitely do that. It would be easier for you to play newer games. BF2 is so much better than 1942. It is possible to play BF2 on the FX5200 (I have friends that do), but it would be on low settings.
  5. I take it that you don't pay your own electric bill? I do have one computer I leave on. That is my media server. The only reason I leave it on is because it's set up to record shows (similar to TIVO recordings). Since I have so many different shows set up to record, I forget when they all come on. It's easier to leave it on. The other four computers I have are turned off when not in use.
  6. Thanks. This change will be made in the soon to be released version 1.5.
  7. Your current video card should be more than enough for BF1942. Remember, that game came out in 2002, a good while before the FX5200.
  8. Is it just me, or did they seem to make the APC a lot more powerful after this last patch?
  9. I was going to buy it but... 1. I don't care to create a gamespy account, 2. I want a simple download, not download something to download this 3. I still haven't played Special Forces that much. 4. I still have fun on the some of the original maps.
  10. I would recommend going with more drives. Since you don't need the space, I would go for 3 drives at 80 gig each, set up in RAID 0. This should be roughly in your budget (not sure about the rate conversion). If it's in the budget, go for 4 drives.
  11. We are currently re-working the Upload / Download tests for Optimize. We will have a minor upgrade available shortly with it.
  12. A good place to start is... Budget. What kind of money are you looking to spend? Another good question is, "what type of experience are you looking for," as in, do you want the ultra-high quality graphics or is just "high" or "medium" settings okay for you?
