Hasn't been mentioned yet so Audiosurf and Proteus have interesting uses of music/sound.
Ordered it all today with the G.Skill chips as recommended...damn BenQ's shot up in price by £40 whilst I ummed and ahhed this week :(
Got a nice busy weekend at work to keep me occupied whilst...
Wow people are awesomely helpful!
* GFX Card: 760 it is then and I'm gonna stick to my guns at the 4GB version just for future proofing. Was kinda testing out some budget ideas with the last...
Thanks for the replies guys, lots of food for thought. Bearing in mind all that's been said, I've done a bit of a redistribution of the budget: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/phlogiston/saved/2jGt
Hey all, I am looking to replace my very dated system (5yr old imac) with a proper PC at last.
My overall initial budget is approximately £1000-1500 (closer to £1000 pls) but with another £500 or...

Are you not familiar with the concept of eBay, or emulator software? I already mentioned eBay in my post ALONG with mentioning abandonware. Your initial post suggested it was 'prohibitively difficult...

Not really true...the increased access to it *could* lead to new ideas when used in conjunction with modern thinking - as you mention, the access to Chinese poetry sparked a golden age of...

I'm not, I'm arguing against people who say "Because I can play all games from history, this is the golden age" because it's a useless, reiterative argument where every day will always be more of a...

This is half the point I was originally trying to address.
Using your logic will lead to tomorrow always being 'more' of a golden age than today in any storable media: I can listen to all the...

Actually I disagree, on mumble each user adjusts their own volume for others to hear, on TS3 you each have to individually change every other users mic volume to suit yourself... so it's actually...

Quake and Doom were mainstream within the gamer subset... but gaming was still not a mainstream thing in general, although it was becoming more so.
And yes mainstream does not always equal crap,...

I see what you mean, perhaps the number of people participating could suggest it's a golden age.
For me though I think of a golden age as reflecting when something is at it's most creative and...

^^ OK, good point picking up on my exaggeration. BUT. Even if all the 1930's films were available, this would still not be a golden age of film. The availability of old examples of a medium does not...

I'm confused by the number of people suggesting that the availability of old games makes this a golden age for PC gaming.
I can obtain almost any movie made in history but I wouldn't say we're...

Skype is terrible for hogging network and CPU resources.
For me mumble and TS3 are the main two I use, but I have vent as well - TS3 is a HUGE improvement over TS2 and is pretty comparable to...
just a little bump since people aren't responding here but just coming straight over to the BMS forums (sorry mods)

True...if you've managed to avoid playing any games in the last 10 years then Doom would still have the same impact :)

You can go back and play old titles, but you'll never truly appreciate Doom if you didn't play it before polygons were invented.

Probably the 90's in general maybe were the golden age of gaming, full stop. *Even* the consoles were cranking out some good titles back then as well.
A shedload of really...
Pretty sure it's already been mentioned, but just finished watching all of Breaking Bad and still working my way through the back catalog of House MD...
Anyone else a fan of taking an initial bite and then squirting some brown sauce into the cavity and shaking the egg about to disperse it?

Please some way of managing this so I don't have to dig through a ton of posts to find something where I can respond just to up my post count so I can make a thread about what I came here to say....
