iv gotten my new computer!
IT RULES! 1.2 gighz 32 meg 3-Dcard 248 RAM and 40 gig hard drive... but what i realy find cool is that on THIS 56k my connection went from a 46,600 to a 115,400.

only drawback is that right now it has a VERY slow CD-ROM...4x..bleh...gonna put in my 36x some time soon.

Lag free? Hmmm ... maybe not quite ...

The only problem with having a fast computer and then going on the zone is that you find out that not everyone has made the same investment as yourself! The game lag is dependent on the slowest comp involved in the game. So theoretically you are actually waiting "more" than you were before when your system was only a little bit faster than the average comp on the zone.

I hope, though, that your new computer does not have many errors...

With my moms new Super Computer aka. S(t)u-p(id)er Computer, it seams to have many video card and color errors, some of which can be somewhat cancelled out by changing the screen size and color pallete back and forth acorrding to what game you play. *sigh* so much for high hopes...

THIS FREAGIN THING IS DRIVEN ME NUTZ! first off i cant install my joystick software (50 bucks gone) asherons call WONT work.. and its not the servers its clearly a computer problem,either that or MSN...which on THIS computer i get a lower connection... (the 115,400bps is a lie! the computer is telling me false info...im realy only getting 36,740) as we speek im doing a 5 hour update for AC which has canceled 3 times becuase of MSN. (not a computer problem but still annoying me)

also the zone wont recognize any of my games i installed...i did manage to log onto AC for a few minutes...mmmm mm ... the graphics were buetiful...AND THEN IT CRASHED!

115k is the speed of the communications port, not the modem - a 56k modem is still a 56k modem - people often confuse port speed and modem speed and they are not the same thing. You could set your port speed to 57600 and it would make no difference to the modem at all, it would still operate at its maximum speed if it was able to. 36 sounds a bit sucky, though, have to say, you should be getting more than that. Again, though, that could be a problem at your ISPs end, not necessarily yours.

let me guess, it has windows ME installed?

dump that OS, it's the worst MS has ever brought out, and that is a bold statement by itself

Go for WIN2000 Professional, it's simply the best , you can play all of the Age games as well as 3D shooters and the like. Your internet will even be faster compared to Win98.

Goodluck

Now, let's face it, Windows NT was always the better Windows. Windos 2000 is really NT 5.0 with a service pack for games. I find it is the best Windows yet.

Yup, just because you got a fast computer doesn't mean it's crash-free. My new computer kept crashing for the first 3 weeks.

Actually I still get people phoning me now about Windows 2000 - like everything else Microsoft do, some have no problems with it and others have nothing but problems. When people say it's the best yet they mean for them - the rest bend my ear off on the phone ;-)

New hardware has always been hassle - very few things go in clean first time, but sooner or later it all settles down.
