Also smegma bullets "whirr" by, the only difference with supersonic is that you hear the sound after the captain becomes a watersack.

I understand. I just meant to point out, as you already have, that its mostly the explosion.

I have a question. Is it worth spending $50-$80 on a graphics card? The computer I own doesn't have a very good one and there are some games I would play if I had a better graphics card. Because the thing is it has 2 gigs of ram, 2 1.6 HZ processors, but a crap graphics card. Quite frankly I know next to nothing about computers, so yeah would a new card be worth buying?

if you mean a dual core 1.6 GHZ then its well worth it to get a graphics card, if its a single core its probably not worth it.

Games might not see a huge jump in speed if they don't handle multithreading well. If you're going to play Left 4 dead (or when they upgrade the engine tf2) you will probably see a significant jump in performance. Don't get anything particularly expensive, the best cards you can get won't perform any better than an average one because your CPU can't keep up.

150 dollars aprox. If you come to america to buy it you can get an excellent mid/high range card. I don't know if you guys get the same kind of amazing deals we get in the states.

In Battlefield 2, is it possible to upgrade your weapons in a LAN game?

no, you need to be signed in with EA to track kills and such which will let you unlock guns.

you should have gotten css when it was 10 bucks on steam. But now its too late, so go with whichever one you want. I personally hate CSS but my brother loves it, I love TF2 and my brother isn't too interested.  Do you want a game thats more competitive or more team-dynamic oriented?

Just competitive, because it's annoying to chat&play for me.

TF2

I never got into CS.
Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I'd gladly do it because
I don't want to fade away.

Ello! is there a way to have an ingame mp3 player, not just in soldat? I'm really tired of having to alt+tab my way out of games and stuff every time I wanna switch song.
