When Quake 3 Arena was released I had a 500 Mhz (Slot) Pentium 3 with a TNT2. I upgraded to a Geforce 2 GTS. Besides adding memory and such later on, The computer has not been upgraded.
I hate to toot my oun horn but when i upgraded the video card, I was one of the top tier players, in a top 10 clan and such. I took a hiatus from gamming for a several months.
I am now starting to play again, but find that I get visual laggs and such, and that people are able to do long range damage with simple weapons.
It is obvious the curve has changed since I have started.
My question is, what is the average or optimum Gamming rig for q3a now?
