Getting my pc ready for Battlefield 3

Recommended Posts

I decided I still want to game every now and then so I start looking at some hardware to get my pc ready for BF3. And

I got some pretty nice hardware and will hopefully be good for at least a year or so smile.png

 

Motherboard

CPU

Videocard

RAM

 

Do any of you game btw? wink.png

So I had a nice weekend of playing some Bad Company 2 and Crysis 2 running on my new hardware. Now updating my CentOS 6 again :)

Damn.. running it on CentOS? That's sound!

 

I used to run a Unreal Tournament server years back (UT99 and 2K4) on Linux, and a few gamers ran Linux clients natively. Was a great deal of fun, especially with Teamspeak to allow us to trash-talk each other.

I used to play UT99 and 2k4 fun games. I dualboot, I do everything on CentOS, and I use windows to game every now and then.

or were you talking about my hardware? :P But I'm good for the next year or two don't need anymore hardware anytime soon.

My pc runs like jet now :D

My new box is going to be quite powerful, so I'm going to look at gaming through WINE on it in some regard (if I ever get the time...)

Souns like fun :) What games are you going to be trying out via wine? I decided to quit gaming because it takes up too much time

and I want to spend that time learning and trying out stuff in linux, which has more use for me in the future then gaming does.

Probably FEAR, Medal of Honour and Painkiller - I used to enjoy playing the latter and there's many add-on packs I've never played.

Been windows free since 2003 and game on a regular basis. Now that programs like Play on Linux are around its easier then ever. I'm in the middle of Fallout 3 right now and have New Vegas in the wings awaiting. If you guys need some help let me know as the learning cure can be kind of high.

yup - but only low-level stuff. I used DOSBOX for an old game I played years ago, I'm gonna try PlayOnLinux once I get more time over Xmas!
