WHO and Hardware 2.0Follow

#1 Sep 05 2008 at 2:55 PM Rating: Decent
I know there have been a few questions about hardware, but i want to be a little more specific.

1). SLI... Do you think 2 1 gig g-force cards would be overkill? ........ ( i know a lot of 512 cards are much better, but i have the 1 gig in my machine now)

2). I saw a Western Digital 300 gig Gaming HD for $300. Again ... overkill?

3). I just bought 2 more gigs (i have 1 gig to start) of (PNY) RAM for 55 bucks. Should i have spent the 200 bucks on 2 gigs of Corsair RAM?


All my other hardware components are fine. These components really are the heart and soul of any gaming machine. So, what do you guys think?

WAR, not WHO.

As to your questions ... WAR is not a demanding game.

256mb GC would be more than enough and as for memory it depends brother. It's up to you, if you want more juice then sure "invest" why not.

Like he said, WAR ain't demanding.

Greetings Tenfooterten! To answer your questions:

1) Way overkill. I wouldn't bother with SLI, as it will only cause problems. If you have a 1GB in your machine, it is almost certainly fast enough. 512MB is plenty for WAR.

2) For $300? Yep, overkill... get the WD 640GB.

3) How many slots are left in your system, and which OS are you using? If it's just Windows XP, 2GB should be enough. If you're using Vista 64, you could go to 4GB, but it's not really worth it if you have to remove sticks to make room.

I hope this helps some! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. You may find use in this guide as well:

Thanks for the responses. And to answer the last post, i'm running XP. My board will support 4 gig's with 4 open slots. I now have 3 gigs, so i should be fine.

I Was just wondering if the extra juice would make a big enough difference to justify the price tag. I think i'll just stay with what i have now.
