Could any of you imagine what Tread Marks would be like on a dual processor AMD computer which has two 2000 MHZ AMD processors and 2072MBs of DDR memory with a GeForce 4 Ti440?

That would sound like a sweet machine but I don't think Tread Marks will take advantage of multiple processors.

As far as the video card goes..I guess you meant the 4400 and not the 440 (which is the MX series...). That would be a sweet deal as well...although I'm not sure that the current version of TM would make any use of the extra capabilities of the card. If someone is giving the gear for free...hey...it would be a sweet deal for sure!!

I'll say. The Planetary Mass Driver (not released by A2597) when getting super ammos and dropping 50 of them won't lag up gameplay to 0.5 FPS for over 10 minutes!

Of course...anyone who drops 50 weapons that launch shockwave projectiles is just insane anyway...LOL

dual processors are great for multi-tasking projects , but of little if any increase for a gamer . maybe if you were playin tread marks , and running ms office xp it would be great . i have enough problems doing one thing at a time let alone 2 or more LOL .

True Guido, not many applications are SMP optimized and not any games that I know of.

SMP is Symmetric Multi-Processing. But applications like AutoCAD, Photoshop and 3D Studio MAX are. And to even get the benifit of dual processors for multi-tasking, you need an SMP compatible OS, true 32 bit environment like NT/2000.

Hey, I'm looking to buy a new computer. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg here, but do want something with a little bit of a kick to it (I do play TM ). Also, I handle fairly graphics-intensive programs like ACAD or 3D-studio max.
What do you guys suggest?

I recomend you go to GateWay and have them build an AMD powered computer and buy the best and newest GeForce 4 they make and jam it in there.

I recommend checking out how to build computers and do it yourself for a fraction of what it would cost off the shelf.
My Geforce 3 can handle anything I throw at it and the price should be really low by now.No point in buying their latest since its too powerfull and nothing really takes advantage of them yet.

I am building a computer. I built this one and it's a pentium three system. I'm changing the motherboard to a Gigabyte 7VTXE+ motherboard and I'm going to place a two gig AMD processor in as well as three 512MB DDR memory modules. I already have a graphic card called the GeForce 2 Ti Pro-VT with 64BM DDR ram. This is basicly going to be one heck of a PC once I'm finished. One question though, is my graphic card considered awsome?
