I don't meet the requirements for a video card yet and I'm running XP until I do.
Hardware - yes.
OS - no.
Just need the video card.
Nope and don't care
No, I'm waiting for Quad core and next gen of DX10 cards..
yes to current pc and a big YES to my quad-core i'm finishing up in next 4 weeks. just need video card and chip when intel price cuts in few weeks.
Macbook ftw. No DX10 there.
Nope and don't care.
Next computer will likely be a Mac as I'm done with Windows' bullshit and have never been a zomg epic gamer.
Nope, don't care.
Don't have a need for a updated rig, not building one until 09/10
PC shit is too expensive for me anymore. I don't have the disposable income I used to have. I've been relegated to consoles...
Dirext X 10 = Crappy Xbox360 ports that only runs on $3000 hardware. Makes me glad I finally bought another console, because PC gaming is just a fucking money trap now.
What are the requirements? My rig is a bit out of date but i've still got 1.5gigs of ram, radeon x1600 w/ 512b mb ram, and a measly 2.2ghz processor.
For the full monty?
1) Windows Vista - which basically straps you in to buying a MUCH faster CPU and 2GB of ram.
2) Nividia 8800 GTS or GTX video card.
But as far as I know there are currenly no DX10 games, and they aren't slated to hit the shelves for a while.
Even with the recent drop in PC part prices, I have no desire to upgrade. I even removed 1 of my 7800 GTXs from my rig because it was making it too loud (don't play PC games anymore).
I might consider getting back into PC games when the next major title comes out. I'm talking like Half-Life 3 major...
I've got everything but the vidcard
but my Geforce is a 7900 GT. Very good but not Dx 10.
However, I don't play on my PC anymore. Prey is half finished and I left Oblivion on my shelf.
Nintendo made me return to the consoles with the DS (and GBA) and the Wii (and GC / VC)
I'd also like to point out that I have a Wii, Xbox 360, Macbook, and a OSX86 machine. Gaming on the pc is of no more for me. Don't have the cash to buy a new rig.
yeah I'm done upgrading for a long while. when money is of no concern, and the "next big thing" comes out....I'll buy what ever is on sale. the only pc game I play now is titan quest (which sucks because it crashes all the time), and thats about it.
No, and I could give two shits.
I've got a copy of Vista (legit :O) and just got an 8800GTS, but I still have no reason to upgrade from XP.
For a nice laugh, Lost Planet actually runs slower in DX10 mode (in Vista only) than in DX9 mode in either Vista or XP. Still a lot of work to be done there. SP1 for Vista is already in the works, unsurprisingly...
I'm going to upgrade just get Core Duo or a quad core processor, but the video card...pffft....forget it. I'm looking at $1000 at least for an upgrade, not $2000. Plus, I don't play enough games to make it worth my while.
I still run 2Kpro for playing DirectX games. Carmack better stay with OpenGL with his next engine.
My hardware is up to it and beyond but Vista has no selling points for me at the moment:
3. Um what games are Vista exclusive .. oh yeah Halo 2 ..
Starcraft 2 has changed my priorities.
I'll be Vista compatable when I get my SCII rig in a year.
