It's really classified--but just between us tankers...

I use a monoatomic mirror stack read with a uv laser and utilizing a combination of chemoelectric memory cells and quantum bit comparator/calculators. This is all rerouted down to a subatomic maser conduit which actuates several crystaline memory chips in a vacuum chamber.

My display and tank controller is a retinal implant with real-world view, periphreal vision and zoom in, zoom out capability

And for those smart alecks who will inevitably ask--yes, I DO have a small lake nearby that provides coolant water :P

What, no quad-channel megaphizo data stream router with that? Did you get that thing at K-Mart?

Good old Matrix G400.

And I always play at low quality - aesthetic distractions prevent efficient killing. :-)

Actually--when I first started--I played for a YEAR on the LOWEST graphics settings because I didn't know you could change them.

One day somebody said "Those clouds are really cool" and I said,"What clouds!?"

...true story

When I first started playing.. My hardware couldn't handle the textures... GM's sure looked funny... Looked like regular shots that could curve and follow you.

You ARE aware aren't you that "chicken nuggets" are all WHITE meat now?

Their is no dark side of nuggets--they have all come over to the light.

The only question now is are you dipped in sweet or sour sauce?

Nvidia TNT2... $50 a year and a half ago.

Until recently I was running nearist mipmap nearist, however, recently at the suggestion of one of the other posts in this topic I switched to linnar mipmap linnar. Good preformance, even on high or expermintal, though I have to turn the resoulation down.

go 5950 or just get the 5700. I have all three(5950/5700/5900), and the difference between the 5700 and 5900 is not really noticable, but the difference between the 5950 and the 5900 is real noticable.....i suspect the extra 128Mb has something to do with that.

just an opinion.
.........you kids, get out of my tank...........
