About the same for me, although my PC can run new games close to highest, so I said "PC New". Although it isn't exactly new, being about 2 years old. Still, I think it's closer to new than old, heh.

Connect your corrupt HD to another PC. It should be viewable as F: or some other letter depending on how many peripherals are on the other PC. Drag and drop what you want to recover to the C: drive of other PC. If your corrupt HD is IDE or SATA, download and run a low level format tool on it, (Google "low level format tool", there are some free ones). I've revived 3 "dead" hard drives this way. Now just stick your fixed HD into your original PC again, reinstall your OS, and transfer your recovered files from the hard drive you copied them to.

Just one question to PC master race. I agree that you are superior to us console players, but why do you hate us? Consoles are keeping the little kids and high ping players(like me) from joining your servers. Are you not glad that consoles are keeping them away? Please give me a logical answer.

Such an answer may come from the fact that Devs nowadays from big companies decide to only allow the "Ultra" setting in their games for consoles. Either that or having a NASA computer. That is one of the reasons, although I don't share such an opinion.

i fell its easier to game on consoles... cause you have the variable movement speeds instead of pressing a button and only being able to go the one speed... thats one of the three reason why i play on console
1. variable movement
2. dont have to worry about specs (though my desktop is topline and can play most games a 100%)
3. if i play through console i dont have to worry about my internet capping since it isnt counted towards the quota

Because the console kiddies will never shut up about how their console is the hottest **** since sliced bread, even though they're all pretty much the same.

That and a lot of people who regularly play on the PC like to spend $60 to get the latest big budget AAA games lament how most of those titles have degenerated into cowadooty rehashes and are all console ports.

Me, I'm happy with my timeless games, from Morrowind to the Hat Fortress, and everything in between.

because the controllers restrict having more games like strategy or the sims (bad example, the sims suck) from being produced and be successful.

I am a console player mainly because I failed to buy a proper PC in the first place so now I play console games more than my late PC. I for one know that PC is superior in terms of hardware and only idiots will believe otherwise. FPS games are better played on PCs than consoles and I agree with that because I bought Battlefield 3 for my 'invisible' PC so currently I am trying to get enough money to buy a decent one to play with ^^

Im buying PC for the sole reason of playing battlefield 3 for the ultimate experience lol

The only way I'd ever play video games on a console is if I could swap out those god-awfully limited and sluggish controllers for a keyboard and mouse. Oh, and if they had hardware that wasn't outdated. And if their games were wide open to modding. And if you could easily create 3rd party programs on their restrictive operating systems.

PC all the way.

Hummm

Lets look how your arguments work against UT3 für PS3:
-Change controllers for mouse and keyboard - No problem
-Newest hardware blablabla - The game is so old you can play it on highest settings so no new Hardware in need plus you can change the hdd for a bigger one
-Game wide open to modding - yup you can mod for the ps3 ut3
-the whole blablabla systembla - possible (well if you are actually so fluent with programming you should have no problem to get that running that you want)

So taking your arguments into account i come to the conclusion that you do have a ps3 / you would buy a ps3 / you would play ut3 on ps3
