My Gaming Rig

If anyone ever wondered why the hell I am playing out dated old games like NFS Carbon, when Shift is out, planning for FEAR, when FEAR 3 is soon to be launched, Gothic 1 and 2, when Gothic 4 is to be launched, here is your answer:     Below is the specification of my grand old PC:Processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+RAM : 1 GB DDR2Hard Disk : 80GBGraphics Card : Inbuilt one with 256 MB video memory (this is the worst part)15” MonitorDVD Drive: None (thx a lot for the pen drives)and a 9 year old speaker, but still working great :D     This is the reason I always used to play out dated games, but I hope, time to upgrade my PC will come soon :D

Afterall, its just BETA still, so no worries.     I ll just post screenshots here… Will write more about the Beta later…My First Race: Got 7th Place

After I finished with the Carbon, I had been playing many classic games online with friends starting from Age of Empires 2, Counter Strike 1.6 to Call of Duty 2…     In all these games, Sridhar is the one who is accompanying me all the time, whereas Yuvaraj, Vivek, Arun, Jyothi Swaroop, Arun Balaji join us occasionally.     For a few days in these gap, I tried Half Life 2. The game was really fantastic, but an infamous “Stuttering Bug” got me. googled a lot to find a fix, but in vein. So, I uninstalled it.     Tried DoTA and this was the first time, I tried that game. The scope of the game is very vast with nearly 100 heroes with distinct skill sets and very large number of items. My friends Arun, Arun Balaji and Jyothiswaroop were trying to d…
