Thread: New G5 with questions..
02-12-2004, 09:49 PM #1CarolynGuestNew G5 with questions..
Good evening! This is my first post on the boards and my first Mac that I will be receiving by FedEx tomorrow! I am so beyond excited and I am hoping that I will not be let down by the G5 performance. I tend to do the usual stuff on PC's which include surfing the net, instant messaging, some PS work and I game (UnrealTournament, etc)
I picked the G5 because of it's speed and silence, but above all I wanted a machine that would last me a long time from here on in.. I am hoping the massive upgrade capability of the G5 will hold me through the next few years. The PC world is beyond aggrivating and I am so done with the PC issues.. I talk to my computer techs about problems I have/had with my PC and the answer always seems to be.. "well just blow it out and reinstall".. how rediculous is that I say to myself.. So I have been blowing out my P3 every 6 months to a year.. I am hoping I won't ever have to deal with those problems again with my new Mac..
Althogh.. This brings me to the couple of questions I have for you all...
I will be hooking up to a network with my brother who will be on a PC.. Will I have problems playing games with him such as Unreal Tournament and or Halo?
Does anyone have a list of games that can be installed on Mac & PC with a single disk?
And my final question for this evening.....
The machine comes with 512 DDR.. I would like to upgrade to a Gig.. Any recommendations on what brand DDR to buy?
Thanks for all of your help and I am sure you will be seeing me around much more often after I get my G5!!!
Oh.. And one gripe about the Mac's.. You spend all this money on top of the line systems and they throw a GeForce 5200 in it? ICK!... Atleast the Radeon 9600 is a little bit better.. But you would think they would come standard with better Graphics Cards...

Any Blizzard games should come with both PC and Mac versions on the same disc. UT and Halo works fine between PC and Mac version IIRC.

Excellent! Thank you..
I will have to check those out..
I ordered the new UT2004 and also Halo a week or so ago.. So should be receiving them anyday now..

UT2004 isn't exactly out yet... Just the demo.
Speaking of which, has anyone managed to get a working version of the UT 2004 demo? All I've gotten is 4 corrupt downloads. Sigh.
