  1. Art thou alive?

  2. Yes. I also do believe that it factors in on how defense is calculated as does DEX. I don't know the mechanics of how the system "rolls" or all its coded equations for this, but stats matter as basis variables (depending on your assigned inputs). Your HP will naturally grow with level even should you not make any changes, but if you do add to it, then it will grow even more. I don't know if this is a linear relationship or a n exponential relationship but suffice it to say the obvious: the more you have the greater the stat is when leveling up.
  3. Actually Rule of Two was something Darth Bane conceived upon after learning all he could from the holocron of Darth Revan, so it isn't in KOTOR. Well... There's quotes from Malak and Revan on KOTOR, and some from Darth Bandon and other more minor characters. There are Revan quotes from SWTOR but I don't think they're sith...mostly...
  4. Merry (belated) Christmas and a happy new year!

It'd be wise this time, though, if he shaped the mortar before it dries and got to it in the wake of the new SW movie (What was it called? The farce awakens?). Unfortunately Barf and Dot matrix won't be there. Neither will Pizza the Hutt. If it were for real or there was some evidence it was actually in the works I might believe 'em. All I've seen thus far is just talk. Until then I'm going to say "yeah whatever" and go on about my life. And on a semi related note I guess Rick Moranis in his retirement from movies is questioning whether or not to take up Tourettes Guy on his challenge. All this being said, this is my view on it... Thoughts?
  6. Your av reminds me a bit of actor Tom Wilson.

  7. I never played a FF before and I'm not too interested in the lengthy debates about the past installments. I'm read a little on FF in general. Some characters appeal to me. I'm aware how MMORPGs work in general. What I want to know: What is this FF about? Would 14 be a difficult starter? How fun is it to play? Does it have tech and/or steampunk in addition to magic themes? How much can you customize characters? Is the story sort of self fulfilling prophecy or does it have a light/dark continuity?

It will be interesting to see where this goes. I'd like to say Microsoft made a smart move in hiring, but I'm not going to speak too soon. Still, if you're a fan of those two things like I am, you can't help but wonder where this is going.
  9. Well crap...I didn't see the thread or I'd have told you that.
  10. The thing you have to keep in mind is what way you're going to handle graphics. Whether you're using your on board graphics in your CPU or a separate GPU, the thing which limits your ability for higher resolutions is how much ram and how much the cache can handle at a time. I was not aware of the shadow issue as MrV said above, so that's another consideration. But skins/textures are what take up so much memory, not the models or the scripting, etc. For CPU you have to give it sufficient system RAM, and in addition to caching you have to keep an eye on system resources a little more closely. This is a simpler way to set it up, though. Usually not a huge concern unless you have other applications running in the background. Make sure you have better cooling than your stock fan in any case. For GPU an average amount of Vram is 2 to 4GB, 6GB is beginning to get large, and the upper levels are 12GB (so far as I know) for Titans and Teslas (these are professional, not something a gamer or hobbyist will buy). Also the frequency clock is an important factor as well. For gaming you ideally want one optimized for it (performance). There may be higher end cards as you will note, but these are more meant for workstation and production and not necessarily performance. They could play games but may not be optimized to handle them at their best settings. A production graphics card's architecture (circuit layout) is meant to spend hours or even days on end rendering and calculating and shrugging off heat that would likely kill other cards. For my purposes I don't necessarily need a "balls-to-the-wall" card. Obviously you want a PSU which can handle your whole system, a graphics card, and then some. Higher the quality, the better components it's made from and the longer it will last. Sure, more efficient too, but any SMPS (Switch Mode Power Supply) is designed to be equal to or over 90% efficient. For sound...I have found a simple USB SoundBlaster soundcard with a good set of headphones or some compact speakers with at least some surround capability works well. For peripherals... Keyboard, I'm going to say go with Logitech mechanical as I have seen several disappointments by Razer. Corsair keyboards look like they fare nicely. There's that glove thing, though, and I don't know how well it'd work. Or if you want general purpose, something with ergonomics in mind. I have a Microsoft 4000 ergonomic I use on and off and it's pretty nice, if a bit large. Don't pay more than about $40-50. Mouse? For MMO get one which is multi button (here at least Razer doesn't disappoint). For action based I'd otherwise recommend something with fast response like the G502 proteus core. Monitor...frankly a mid range gaming level Asus will probably do fine for SWTOR. I'm not sure what game requires the refresh rate of a BenQ. Obvbiously there's a ton more choices, I'm just mentioning what's commonly available that works.
  11. Heh. Yep. I'm about to get me a 6GB GTX980Ti for rendering 3D. I'm sure it'll handle whatever games I throw at it.
