Replying to Halo For The Pc

After installing the software, I did a defrag on the installation directory. And fired it up. The controls were awkward at first. If you're use to other 1st person games it shouldn't be a problem - with the simultaneous keyboard and mouse setup. We also tried to use an 10 Button Logitech gamepad with no analog, didn't work as great as the key/mouse combo. After explaining to my son I was not really a FPS gamer, he just had to learn the pc setup. 15 minutes later he was having fun.
Every once in awhile I would check on him. We also looked into the customization settings. We increased the resolution and experimented with the CRT Monitor refresh rate. We notice high refresh rates also make the mouse speed to appear more sensitive. We also messed around with the PC's sound card speaker/surround settings. We couldn't complain with the installed budget video card an ASUS EAH4350 (PCI Express 2.0 x16, 1GB, Core 600MHz/Memory 400MHz) which cost under $50 USD.
Well from the other previous posts - 2005ish. If you were not a dedicated PC gamer, super spoil, or rich you probably had a mainstream or budget setup which at that time is nothing compared to 2008-2010ish stuff. My motherboard is 2007ish with the video card in the late 2008.
I kind of think the video graphics technology for a 2004-2006 PC is like an XBOX or PS2, and 2007-2008 is a XBOX360/PS3, 2009/2010 Crossfire/SLi setups will comparible/betterish than next generation consoles.

I did own a 360 (until I got drunk and fell on it, snapping the motherboard into piece and snapping open the HDD, I literally cried lol) and have the wireless headset (which I currently use on my PC until I get the cash to buy a new 360). Halo 3 is definately worth playing on the 360 online. I only played for a few months but damn did I master it lol I love online gaming and Halo is definately a really great match. I used to design 3D games so it's very easy to fully calculate the 3D engine and predict the appropriate moves before you make them, definately worthwhile learning and developing 3D engines if you're in to playing those sort of games, gives you one hell of an advantage over most others in the game.

Okay the halo trial for the pc is ok but the problem is that everyone has mods
The mods get boring.Don't get me wrong ,theyre cool and all, but just stop the mods for a bit.Except for the ghosts and tank mod... That ones cool
