    What System do you Play Quake on?

    I have been playing quake on the same old system for 5 years now and i had upgraded the vid card and ram a few times over that course. I finally retired it and am in the process of building a new system. The new system is way overkill for quake and its 64bit vista so im hoping it runs without any issues.

    My old Machine was:

    P4-2.6ghz (i think)
    2 GB RAM
    Radeon X800
    IDE Crap drive
    19 Inch LCD

    Ill post my new machine specs later after its up and running.

    load time is like playing a Sega-CD on my Radeon x1650 , and it isnt much better on my factory o/c'd ASUS GF8500GT. If you've never played a Sega CD, feel fortunate, because the load times was insane compared to a cartridge game.

    That should give you an idea of what your min is, and when they say minimum they mean it this game is crazy demanding

    the first game that couldnt run on very-high settings so far

    it ran the game flawlessly though,I told it to test for best settings, and it chose minimum, but still was a lot of eye candy to be had even on minimum settings haha. I ran the test using the x1650 card, I'll test the other machine later in the day, but im expecting the same results.

    and btw, why are you bothering to use the 8500gt as physx, considering there is only a handful of games that support it...I have played Switchball ,which supposedly required the actual physx card ,which is a crock of shit,because switchball ran like a pimp without it,i just had to install physx software so the cpu could run the physx portion. this was before nvidia bought out physx as well..

    machine 1
    amd 64 x2 windsor 4200 , 1gig 333mhz ddr
    asus nvidia 8500gt 512mb

    machine 2
    amd 64 x2 windsor 4400 , 1gig 667mhz ddr
    sapphire radeon x1950 512mb

    that newb omicron said he wouldnt build a machine alike those,but its funny how any gam released to date has been playable with graphics cranked up all the way w/o any problems.

    cost per machine was under 400bucks. Newegg is rape.
    Have you tried Stalker or Crysis cranked up "all the way" on those systems? Both of these games can't go all the way on my system and still be playable and I've got a x2 windsor 5200+, 2gb ddr2 800, an 8600gts for video and an 8500gt for physx

    well i tried quake last not... Qrack didnt work. It said couldnt load gfwad or whatever that common error is. GLProPlus worked but couldnt connect to any servers, it just sat at "Connected".

    This comes from just running quake off my 120GB WD USB Drive. Which has worked on other PCs before. Didnt have anytime to look at it, it was about 1am. I will look at it more this weekend.

    New PC Spec:

    Intel Quad Core q9550 Oc'd to 3.2Ghz
    8 GB of OCZ DDR2-1066 MHZ RAM
    Asus Rampage Mobo
    MSI 4870x2 (2 GPUS on 1 Card with 2GB of Video Memory)
    Sata2 Velociraptor 10k drive 300GB
    Vista Ultimate 64 Bit
    And my favorite... a LG 26inch Widescreen monitor
