If his reply did not matter why did you Quote it?
We all make mental pieces while we live, most just have more coherence to the shared reality.

Re: hai OT... i got a computer problem

if you dont want to spend alot on a computer to play d2 and the interwebs, go to good will or check garage sales, you will find parts from computers within the last 5 years that will make a machine that can do that

might not be the best at playing youtube vidoes ect.. but will work for d2


or check this

I don't have the profession of building a PC so I'm going to stick to buying a cheap $300 tower with 1GB ram, 250gigs - 320gigs, ect. and the cheapest flat screen monitor I can find b/c this current monitor is like 10 years old and is huge.

Is there a reason your current computer can't handle D2? Even those specs are way more than you need. Have you tried a Glide wrapper yet?

I have a $0 computer for you, with Windows 2000, 1 Gig RAM, a 40Gig HD (I can add another 40Gig one if needed), for free, which runs D2 perfectly, but you have to fetch it from here yourself (Hamburg, Germany). I won't pay anything to send it to you and the OS and everything is in German :smug:.

Seriously, get a used $1 computer from ebay if you just want to play Diablo and surf the web. A computer from 2002 or so with Win98 is good enough for that.

Windows... the OS and everything is in German :smug:.

I'm surprised they have windows in Germany. I thought they broke all of them in november '38


meanwhile I played diablo 2 for years on a 200 mhz computer running 64 mb of ram and a 2 mb graphics card.

I also ran half life on it with ease.


Why was diablo 2 so hard to run? I mean it was one step above hand puppets in a hollowed out monitor.

Seems both Direct3D and DirectDraw aren't the most efficient ways to generate textures.....or something like that. There were a few threads with that issue recently.
