    Recovered well from my cavity search at Best Buy. Loving this game so far.

    My small gripe, don't like the map setup. Keep it simple.
    Just roaming the landscape. Have no intentions of advancing in the storyline anytime soon.

    So you don't like the real time 3D representation? I could see that. Beats Morrowind's awkward DEM though. Didn't fit in a fantasy setting.

    WM, is this a must-buy? Am I needlessly punishing myself by waiting?

    In my world, yes it's a must buy. Then again I am one that never really gets into the shooter games.
    Just go get it. It will keep eating at you until you do. It's a game you will still be playing years down the road.

    I have been neglecting MW3 because of Skyrim. The scary thing about this game (for me anyway) is time flies when you're playing. Friday night I started playing around 8:30ish and the next time I looked at the clock it was around 1:30am. I thought to myself damn, I've been playing for 5 hours? Sure doesn't feel that way because I haven't accomplished shit....just been running around.

    Would have to know your computer specs, like chipset and what kind of video card. Bassman would probably be the best one to weigh in here due to the fact that he is the biggest nerd I know.

    Sweet. I chose a dark elf and am at level 7 I think.

    What do you currently have? I can help you...

    I did some research on the Intel card you currently have. It meets the minimum specs, but isn't on the list of games it will support:

    Intel® G45 Express Chipset — Game playability on Microsoft Windows Vista*


    Here's a link to the recommended specs and minimum specs for Skyrim:

    Bethesda Reveals PC Requirements for Skyrim

    Here's the NVIDIA card on Newegg for $99: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-N26UD-896M REV2.0 GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    Here's the ATI card on Newegg for $109: Newegg.com - DIAMOND A4890PE51G Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

    Both are express cards but take up two slots on your board so you need to make sure you have an open slot next to it available. For what it's worth, I prefer NVIDIA to ATI/AMD.

    Make sure that before you go buying new graphics cards, check the power requirements and make sure your rig has the proper power supply to run it. Ive learned this lesson the hard way after chasing my tail for a week trying to figure out why my new graphics card wouldnt work when I was using a 120 power supply :)

    Yes, very important. I just assumed QP would know to do that.

    QP - what kind of desktop/tower do you have? Is it homemade or HP, Dell, etc?

    Looking forward to building my own computer rig in a couple of years, when I finally end the vow of poverty that is grad school. So tired of working for free. By the way, the USGS are a bunch of slavery-loving mooching mo'fo's.
