Gaming Area Revamp

This weekend I decided to organize my gaming area a bit – I’m now sporting dual monitors (which I absolutely LOVE) and I also crossfired two ATI Radeon 4870s which is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I have to admit, the i7 quad core was an amazing purchase, even though I’ve had it for going on two years now. I run it with 8 gigs of ram, and have had very few issues. I’ve also not regretted switching from Nividia to ATI, I burned through so many Nvidia cards, ATI has yet to let me down.

On a semi related note, I picked up Age of Conan for $7 at Best Buy (the box, I realize digital versions of the game have been pretty cheap lately too), and I also picked up Dark Ages of Camelot for $10 (including all expansions). I’ve never played DAoC before, despite the fact that it’s been around forever, and LOTS of people have talked about the game. I’m excited about giving it a try for a month and writing about it over on NomadicGamer.com – I haven’t been very Nomadic lately, which has been nice, but I’m getting restless (as I always do).

I hope everyone else is having an amazing weekend, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself.

    Another trackball mouse user, awesome! Glad to know I am not the only one.

    DAoC is a neat little game. I picked up the bundle a few years ago and played it for awhile. I loved the community, it reminded me of EQ a lot.

  3. Wow, that’s an awesome set up :D Two games at once? I’ve in awe :)

    And you use the same trackball as me! I switched to a trackball both at work and at work about 3 years ago and have never looked back. Originally I did it because it reduces wrist strain and now I just love the thing for gaming – makes camera or FPS movement so much faster.

    I LOVE my trackball. So much. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m left handed and I find it easier to control via thumb then it is with my whole hand moving all over (it’s optical) but I don’t think I could go back to a ‘regular’ mouse now.

    I am amazed that you use a trackball. Also congrats to multitasking, I could not play EVE and EQ2 at the same time, though EVE allows for a lot of idle time… :)
