So here is the same battle - but my screen shot says "SERVEROGORSK" instead of "BELOGORSK-190" ?????

Does anyone else see Belogorsk as the new map's name?

Seems he may have downloaded the European version, or an early version?

Kris, I think it was you that I was talking to about some youtube videos I have found helpfull to my game play, but to anyone who wants to watch them take a look here: http://www.youtube.com/user/QuickyBabyTV

QuickBaby has what I have found to be some very helpfull reviews on map tactics and of some tanks. I have added him to my favorites and re-visit his page every so often to check out what he has that is new.

There are also alot of gameplay videos of the Centurian 7/1 for those interested in that tank.

I just noticed that he has some on teamwork too, I will be checking those out shortly.

*As always, they are suggestions or atleast one persons view of how things can be done, do not confuse that with me saying this is how they must be done to be successfull. There is one person on here that has taken offense to that before, I don't really care if they get offended again, I just don't want to have to deal with the BS again.

ok, so the "teamwork" videos are QuickBaby, and two other really good players (one is Jingles normally) who are platooned up during a live stream. not really talking about how to work together, but showing how they can work really good together.

Ok, let's bring this back up again... I am looking at upgrading my video card. I know I will have to upgrade my Power supply also. Right now I am running on low settings on the game with the on board video card, I would like to have Ed's issue with having to turn things off because they are distracting, but I realize that may be a pipe dream with my budget.

What would you all reccomend? for the power supply and video card I am thinking of $100-150, but would like to stay on the lower end of that range.

I am not sure exactly which PCI-E slot I have, I will go look today and get some further information if needed.

at your budget levels your looking at a AMD 7770 Radeon or a nVidia 650 ti.
brand really doesnt matter, as they all perform within 2-4% of each other.

If you can stretch it a bit there is a 7850 on sale at microcenter

Sam: I'm a bit more of an nvidia fan than ati.. but you can't go wrong with a modern card from either company.

Making it super simple: check out this chart:
http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html

Choose the card that fits your budget and is highest on the list.. but any cards that are near each other are fine.

Don't take the chart as the bible.. but use it as a "general guide" to see where a card stands.
For example don't walk into Best Buy and get screwed by buying a $150 card that has been on their shelf for a year when you can get a card 3 times as fast from newegg for the same money because it is the latest greatest.

Hope this helps

For example I have a friend who just got this card on Friday and it rocks for $139

Like Ed, I lean towards the Nvidia side.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130831 is a steal right now, and includes a $75 WOT coupon
