Far Cry 2 and Steam

Hey guys, i know this is a long shot but is there anyone out there that downloaded FC2 via Steam?

I'm having issues that the game isn't launching full screen but rather windowed. Any advise how to fix this?

Re: Irratating buzzing noise in headphones

Well i'm revisiting him tomorrow so i hope he has some way of testing the psu to determine if the problem stems from there.

Since i've upgraded it's just been headache upon headache.

Re: Irratating buzzing noise in headphones

The earphones work great. I tested them on my old C2D machine so i think it's safe to say they are ok.

How could it be possible that the case is causing the issue?

Re: Irratating buzzing noise in headphones

I took my machine into Asus and they sparred with it all day. They replaced the board and the same problem persists. Any other tips i could try before lookin...

Re: Irratating buzzing noise in headphones

Even when I mute all sound on the control panel you can still hear the droning, buzzing noise. I'm looking for the nearest bridge so i can jump off it!

Re: Irratating buzzing noise in headphones

I had Zalman 5.1's but got me the new Roccat Kave's ( I wanted to upgrade).

Can you run me exactly through what you did so i can try and eliminate various possibilities? Remember i'm not the most technical guy working with pc's. I know a little bit about a little bit :)

Re: Irratating buzzing noise in headphones

Yeah, i think there's interference coming from somewhere in the case. Freaking frustrating especially the fact i biught new ear phones just to hear the noise more clearly! On some of the forums it is said that buying a decent sound card eliminates this. But sheesh then it's another plus/minus R1000 ...

Irratating buzzing noise in headphones

Hey guys, i got an issue. I currently have a Asus P8P67 Deluxe Rev.3 mobo and i'm using the onboard audio on the board to run my Zalman 5.1 headphones. For the last while i've noticed this irratating buzzing noise that is extremely irratating during gaming in games such as the new Duke Nukem. But st...

Re: Radeon 6970 not running on my TV

Ok thx. The first 2 images is what happens with the 6970 and the last one is my 5850 working like it should. CCC sees the tv but once you select to either duplicate or extend the screens it splashes out a msg " This operation is not supported on current display configuration." It's as if a connectio...

Radeon 6970 not running on my TV

Hey guys I have a new Radeon 6970 and I'm trying to run it via my pc through my Samsung 40" LED Tv. I cannot get it to work. I took some screen shots of the problem. Im quite familiar with CCC and my 5850 runs perfectly on the Tv. I've tried to install the drivers from disk and latest from the inter...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6970 CrossFireX review

I dont crank the AA and AF up i usually keep them as standard. Ke? :? You first say that you want to experience a game at it's absolute maximum potential, but then run AA and AF on defaults? As I stated earlier I'm not familiar with all these things. Educate me if you feel the need to. I know when ...

LOL! Love your style. Basically i'm trying to educate myself and try and figure these things out without lending my ears out too much. Are you happy with your 6970?

Yes to latest drivers and yes to naitive display. I dont crank the AA and AF up i usually keep them as standard. Just to clarify i'm not complaining.

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6970 CrossFireX review

A good metaphor would be like driving a car in 3rd gear and not knowing that u have a 4th or 5th gear. So you're getting where you need to be but not the way you should be. I think a good article PCF can write and publish would be a guide to make sure your pc is running at full potential. Covering a...

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6970 CrossFireX review

True enough. My concern is in my naivity that i think my game is playing at max potential and infact it isn't. I'm just worried i missed a trick and that i'm missing out on expericeing the game as it should be experienced.

Re: 6970 crossfire?

Wow, i have no clue what that means.

If needed i'll buy a 850w psu.

But i did research my fact thoroughly. According to various sites it states it needs from 500w to 600w.

Re: AMD Radeon HD 6970 CrossFireX review

What concerns me about reviews is that the components are tested against the toughest of the tough. Then i card gets slammed because it didnt get the job done as was expected.
