And G|F.E.A.D|Killa Its nothing wrong with buying things for this computer, and buying another one. I have 800 dollars put away just for my new computer, even tho i am sure i will only use about 300 hundred on building it.

Also about the 8500GT PCI card, the card is impossible to find. But there is a place where i might can get it, i am looking into now. I just hope i can get it, if not i will just keep the 2400 HD PRO.

Dude, seriously, stop putting money into that computer.

It's time to think about a new build.

You can spend all the money you want on your computer, but in the end it's still a P3 at 600MHz.

Please buy a new rig.

I ran the Crysis demo on my old rig (P4, 1.5GB DDR1, ATi 9800) at 800x600, settings all set to low and got decent frames. I don't doubt the OP's claims at all.

Anyway, upgrade that *****! Hold out for the new cards this summer as I'm not really impressed with the performance of these 8800s when it comes to Crysis.

Why would you upgrade from a 2400HD to a 8500GT......Please put the money to good use by buying at least a X800.

Wow. This has got to be a joke. I seriously can't believe you're now considering wasting even more money on another inferior PCI video card. I've seen video cards donated for FREE in the Freebies section of this site that are better than that (and a bunch of CPU's, motherboards and PSU's better than yours as well). Experimenting is fun if you've got the old junk lying around, hell if my old AMD K6-2 still worked I'd probably try to run Crysis on it just for the lulz... but dumping money into it is an entirely different matter. Especially for overpriced hardware from Best Buy.

I'll give you credit for having fun with the experimentation but I simply cannot get behind wasting hundreds of dollars on inferior hardware like you have. Come on man, give it a rest.

Come on guys, this is an overclocking forum, not a forum about running relic hardware at stock clocks.
This guy told me to buy an old PCI graphic card instead of my AGP card because he thinks PCI is better than AGP, that's the problem. So you should not flame me...

And my old Pentium III system is fully overclocked, read my specs.

I think it's more fun to try to get things like actual games running on an old machine than simply buy an modern computer. Buying computer is easy for everybody. But overclocking and tweaking is more interesting.

(For me it's like in the 80th when I tried to make graphic effects running on a simple Atari ST that normally work only on Amiga with the special custom chips. Things like smooth scrolling, digi sound, sprites and so on...)

I didn't even read this thread, but the first post burns... the low clock speed.. that power supply... i mean.. it is literally making me flashback to my Packard bell... I'll donate a duel 2.4 dual core is you just upgrade...

amazing how ths thread never died. rather dissapointing

Haven't you noticed all the northwoods being given out? I bet if you picked up one of those you'd run crysis much faster.


Yeah its a fun challenge sometimes to get games to run on old PCs, but its even more fun to play them on new ones!
