    Nope. Just a very streamlined SATA drive with very little else on it. I'm also running in "gaming mode", i.e. all unnecessary services and processes shut down. I don't have the latest processor or video card, either. I don't play with ultra high screen resolution, though, which might also account for it. 1440 x 900.






    Ah right yeah - was just wondering whether the SSD investment would be worth it for chunking etc.

     

    A SSD is the best thing you can do to improve your Vangaurd performance. it is quite remarkable really. Or run some of the caches, textures and meshes from a RAM drive ( assuming you have ram to spare ).

    I used to play and I agree there is a distinct lack of ambience in much of the game's towns.  At one point they were gonna remedy this and started by redoing Khal and adding in alot more stuff and textures and whatnot.  The developers said they were gonna do this to all the major cities but Khal was the only one to get it. 

    About the sound effects nothing has ever stuck more out of place to me than the gnomes saying Snuggles! when you talk to them lol.

    Anyways it's all in the eye of the beholder.

    the struggle to free myself from restraints becomes my very shackles

    Couldn't tell you what rez to use on a TV, but a SSD is a Solid State Drive. Basically, it's like a hard drive that uses non volatile flash memory instead of disks. Like a flash card, but with much higher storage capacity. Since there's no physical aspect to it, i.e. no head moving across a disk surface to search for and access data, the speed is significantly faster than a conventional hard drive.

    When in doubt, you should go for the native resolution of any flatscreen display, TVs included.
