...like a new video card. After days of struggling to get my system to run the beta client, I finally narrowed it down (thanks to a ton of people on this board and Teneleven) to the video card. One change, and everything has fallen into place. I only scored 2501 on the low benchmark, but hey, at least I can play now!

(...um Woo, didn't anyone tell you that this beta phase ended on the 25th...?)

O.O
****!!! ><


...sigh... oh well, see you guys when the next one starts!

Well, I know I was being stubborn by wanting to try and squeeze any chance of being able to play on this PC without any upgrades and not listening to the advice and suggestions of those who posted their help, but I had the time to try and wanted to. No big deal. It was a big help though being able to have some of the references and hardware benchmarks people posted. Those made picking a new video card easy.

We all want our rigs to work. We all had to upgrade. It was a nice battle though. Trying to get your PC to run was like trying to Fight Kirin with no RDM's. We put up a good fight, but once he started spawning mini gods, we wiped.

Glad you finally got your RDM (New video card).

Wait, fight... What??? O.o

I don't know of this thing you talk about, "fight." I'm a WHM; all I do is stare at health bars and macro alerts.
