  1. Hello / Hi and happy Friday. :) This thread I created for people to show their oldest PCs that they may still have running. *P.S This thread is not intended to make you feel old :p I guess I'll start then: My trusty old IBM Pentium 1, specs are listed down below along with pictures.. Specs: Pentium 1 166mhz 16mb ram 1,2gb HDD CD ROM 3 ¼ Stiffy Drive Recently added a 5 ¼ Drive in below the CD ROM ( not shown in the pic) Running Win95 Speakers and CD ROM have yellowed quite a bit I admit, but they are still functioning :) Pics: Feel free to post below :)
  2. Hi Codies / Community. I'm breaking the ice here since this my very first post on the forum :) I'm having trouble getting Formula 2013 to launch. On Steam, I double click to launch the game and then a little Windows pops up saying "Preparing to launch F1 2013" then vanishes. Then the game does not start. I have tried the basic troubleshooting steps such as "Verifying game cache" and completely re installing the game to no avail. I have listed my system specifications as detailed as I can below, nothing is overclocked. CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k GPU: Msi R7950 3GB Twin Frozer 3 ( 14.3 driver ) Mobo: Gigabyte z77 d3h Ram: (2x4gb) Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz Hdd: 1x 500gb Seagate , 1x Adata 120gb ssd, 2TB Seagate Psu: Corsair TX750m Case: Coolermaster Storm Scout Any help would be much appreciated.
  3. Hey :) Just wanted to find out what is your drink of choice while playing? Me personally, it would have to be a warm cup of tea. Nothing beats that for me.

    The PC Thread

    Hey chaps, so this is my current setup: CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k ( no oc ), cooled by a Hyper212 Evo Turbo GPU: Msi R7950 3GB Twin Frozer 3 Mobo: Gigabyte z77 d3h Ram: (2x4gb) Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz Hdd: 1x 500gb Seagate , 1x Adata 120gb ssd, 2TB Seagate Psu: Corsair TX750m Case: Coolermaster Storm Scout I run games at 1080p/60Hz. I wondering if maybe a GTX960 would be a decent upgrade from my current GPU once it officially releases?  Computer parts are still quite expensive in my corner of the world unfortunately. Although my 7950 is running games quite alright, I would like something with a little more oomph so I can start turning the settings up a bit.

    The Game Thread!

    Well I know I'm kinda late to the party with this but I only recently picked GTA V on the Xbox 360. I must say, I'm quite enjoying the game despite the 360 showing its age in terms of graphics and frame rate. Been a long while since I played with any console controller so I'm quite rubbish with the analogs, this shows well in my driving ability in the game :pensive:   Really looking forward to the PC release of the game though. Just hope Rockstar don't make a hash of the PC port like they did with GTA IV. Even after all those patches, it still ran terribly, at least for me it did.
