I made gold 3v3 the other night as well. I can tell a difference in my opponents skill.

But I've been picking up strats off them. Like mass marines/medivacs. I'm 3 for 3 on that strat, two 3v3's and one 1v1 lol.

I haven't done the league stuff yet but I've been playing 2v2 AI with a co-worker online. No issues beating them on Medium but Hard is a different story.

Oh and I'm [email protected] Can anyone connect to the vent server or just clan members?

Yeah lets start a clan! The suffix will be [MT]

Thinking about clans brings up fond memories. Like spammer bots that would flood rivalry clans lol.



PM Rick for the vent info.

I need a new video card for sure. The on-board BS in this computer isn't handling starcraft 2 all that well. Anyone care to share some knowledge of modest priced video cards that will handle SC2?

You can get a used 9800GT for about 50$, works great for me. New is 80$.

Depends on what you consider modest. Would suggest something in the 2xx series of GeForce, but that might be more than your opinion on what modest is.

Definitely sub $100. More than 100 bucks will buy me a lot of things i'd rather have for my car or credit card payments that i'd much rather make lol.

I'm running an eVGA 8800 GTS 640MB and it's great. I'd probably pick up the 9800GT that others have suggested.

Here's a good option to go newer:

90$ shipped, a generation newer, not going to be much faster than the 9800 though.

A 240GT would be slower than a 9800GT....

Yeah, but it's inefficient to go with a more expensive model that is slower.

I think you're comparing apples to oranges. A laptop GTS360M would be the equivalent to a desktop GT240. The laptop 9800m GTS is equivalent to a desktop 8800 GTS. My laptop GTX 280M is equivalent to a desktop 9800 GTX. ****, this is confusing.



I've got a laptop with a 9800M GTS, and it will play fine at 1080P. I also have a laptop with a GTX280M, and it will play at ultra settings at 900P, but I turn it down to medium if I'm playing some of the custom, unit-spamming maps.

The Home Theater PC I built for my GF's family will even play it at 60fps with medium-low settings at 900P with a $40 HD 4350.

So basically, if you've got a discrete graphics card that was released in the last 4 years, you can probably play SC2 fine.

C'mon... the GeForce 3xx series is two generations and two years newer than the 9xxx series. Of course it'll be faster, computers tend to do that over two years.

I need a card that works with my stock 300w psu. The 9800 will not work.
