I respect your opinion, without a doubt I have no issue with the graphics.  Although to say that they could stack up with MMOs releasing today I think is not correct.  I have setting maxed as my computer can definitely handle it, as you implied that they aren't that great otherwise, but I still think they are slightly outdated.  They do not look bad, just not nearly as smooth for character models and edges as other modern games.  The draw distance and artistic direction itself is incredible though, that I will give credit for where credit is due.  To each his own I guess, just trying to give a reasonable review of a game that I think deserves a bit more attention especially now that it is F2P while trying to remain as objective as possible.

Well I can honestly say I am pleasantly surprised… After a few years of stale MMOs including F2P re-releases I decided to give Vanguard another shot.  It has been a long time since I have truly enjoyed an MMO, a lot of them out there try really hard to succeed but for some reason do not grasp my attention nor my imagination.  This is simply not the case with Vanguard.  I realize it is an old game, and there are a few negatives to the game that I have already noticed but I think it has some redeeming qualities for those with a bit of patience.  I have been playing only for a bit (level 13) but I am going to try to sum up my experience in a short pros and cons (equal amounts to be fair) list for anyone considering giving it a shot (although everyone should now that it’s free!)


·         Sense of nostalgia, while not something that seems like a good thing, in this case it is.  Remnants of EQ days are surely to hit that comfort feeling for our longer playing MMO-aholics.

·         Deep systems, crafting is amazingly complex and nothing like most click to create systems and diplomacy is one of the more unique minigames I have played in a game in a while and is an interesting take on faction relationship building.

·         Combat is surprisingly difficult depending on what it is you are trying to do (negative for this incoming later).

·         Community is great, most of the players are extremely helpful so far with the exception of a few.


·         Outdated graphics, not really a con in my opinion but I know that is a turn off to some amongst us.

·         Game engine is a little rough around the edges and produces some odd moments including clipping and constant minor frame issues (not really too noticeable after playing for a bit).

·         Combat feels a little slow/sluggish, maybe because it is based off older styles of combat in MMOs but it just lacks a certain oomph to it.

·         Small player base in the starting areas, although this is changing every day with the F2P bringing players in.

All in all (TL;DR) the game is a great homage to older games, although feeling a bit archaic at times due to an older engine and graphics it may be exactly what some of you are looking for.  I would especially recommend it for those who complain of newer MMOs being too simplistic or being too clone-like to their counterparts.  Hope to see you in game, it deserves a second chance.


I actually never overclocked my system, figured it wasn't necessary, if it happened then something caused it to do it lol cause it sure wasn't me... will take a look and see what I can find.

Ran Prime95 last night, passed all tests with no errors at all (ran the optimal tests for stress tests)




You may have been 100% correct on the overclock... for some reason in my BIOS it was set to 103... restored it back to default (not sure how it got changed in the first place) and placed it back in auto and seems to be working fine again... will continue to monitor closely tonight and if it seems to be solved, well then case closed.  If it is indeed fixed, thank you and to everyone else who helped a thank you to you as well!

Haha speaking of not quitting the day job I gotta get to bed, work in the AM... thanks for the help to all that responded will continue to try to fix the problem and will keep the fresh install on the back burner as a last resort.  Will be back tomorrow with any updates, running Prime95 right now btw :)



My CPU clock speeds when the lag hits stay at the same speed they are at when there is no lag which is roughly 4121Mhz.

The performance tab shows all cores being used evenly for the most part, the only couple that are slightly spiked higher are 1, 3, 6, 7... but not by much.

Physical system memory is at (19%) and CPU column has everything at 0 except the game which is at 2 and system idle process which is at 99.

As far as it being the game, I would figure that but I first noticed it when Rage hung on me, then TSW and finally Terreria... I am using it as my test subject since it runs small and windowed so I can easily monitor everything when it hangs and when it runs smoothly.

No idea what to do next lol...


Bah, didn't even notice the fact that it was 32 bit, bummer... oh well.


Do you think a synergistic issue would pop up after having the computer for 6 months?  The thing has run perfectly fine up until about a day or so ago... 

Any ideas on what to do next because everything I originally listed that I did seemed to return normal results.

Honestly, the only reason for a complete wipe and switching to Windows 8 is two fold.  I dont expect improved performance, I guess I should have been more upfront... I realize that the best way to do that would be to get an SSD, but clearly something is bogging my system down and at this point I am at a complete loss for what it could be.  The reasoning behind getting Windows 8 and doing a fresh install is to verify that none of my current programs are causing a memory leak issue or something of the sort that is slowing my system down (and if the fresh install runs smoothly then I will know that right away).  The second reason is I have been considering an upgrade (if you want to call it that :P) to Windows 8 for awhile now and if I remember right the upgrade price will go up in cost soon.  That is the reasoning behind that.


To answer your questions, by lag I mean that the computer becomes very sluggish but not completely unresponsive... for example, while running Terreria my framerate goes from 60fps (100% according to the game) to 38 (51%).  Also while browsing the internet earlier it slowed to the point where my mouse would be unresponsive for a second while moving it and then snap to where I wanted it to be.


Ignore the bit about the CPU, I've come to find out that what it is doing is normal.


By the temps, here is a rundown of when freshly booted vs when I see the lag while playing a game.


While not gaming: 

Kombuster readings: 
Temp: 42C 
Load: 8% 


Core0: 23C - 32C 
Core1: 21C - 31C 
Core2: 20C - 32C 
Core3: 24C - 32C 
Package: 30C - 32C 

Gaming (Running Terreria in widowed mode after lag hit): 


Kombuster readings: 
Temp: 41C 
Load: 5% 


Core0: 20C - 32C 
Core1: 21C - 31C 
Core2: 25C - 32C 
Core3: 27C - 31C 
Package: 30C - 33C

Am now considering wiping Windows 7 and my hard drive and doing a fresh install of Windows 8.

Good Evening All, 

I have a problem I was hoping someone could help me fix. I have a custom built PC that I have been running for roughly 6 months now and just recently it has hit a lag issues on its framerates. I am not sure if it is CPU related or video card related, the CPU seems to be put into overdrive when running games or multiple tasks. I am ran CCleaner to try to fix the problem but that did not help. I also updated my video card drivers and checked the temperatures on both my CPU and GPU which seem to be normal. A Malwarebytes scan found nothing nor Kaspersky and due to the fact that this is a gaming rig, and an expensive one at that I limit my downloading and try to watch what sites I visit. This issue seemed to pop up in the past few days and I have no idea what the root cause could be. Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem could be or would anyone be willing to run through some solutions? My system specs are as follows: 

CPU: Intel i-7 2600 @ 3.4ghz 
GPU: Nvidia GTX 580 3g 
Op System: Windows 7 x64 
RAM: 16gb 

Any other questions please let me know, and thank you so much for your time in advance. 

It is probably noteworthy to say that it is an intermittent issue. I first noticed it when I was playing Rage and the game stuttered and now today while checking to see if it was a fluke by running Terreria. Neither of these should be an issue for my PC at all.

I have done the following so far with no immediate fixes in sight: Run defrag, scandisk, memory check, updated drivers, monitored temperatures both of CPU and GPU.


When the lag spikes hit, even while playing something as resource minimal as Terreria I am only getting 38 FPS, something is clearly not right.


You are the best, thanks for the help bud, Im copying all the suggestions down and taking it with me over to Fry's to see what they have there.  Buying it there may be more expensive than Newegg but at least I will have it as fast as possible.  Thanks for everything, appreciate you taking the time to price everything out and especially for adding your reasoning.

I did have a question on exactly what you meant when referring to modularity in regards to the PSU.


The budget does not include peripherals, and I do plan on assembling it myself... Definitely will take your suggestion of getting a Radeon HD 7970, and also the other users suggestions on getting a SSD. Anything else? Thanks for the quick and helpful replies thus far!

Hey all,

Looking to build my own custom desktop after years of buying brand name PCs. Currently own an alienware laptop that is pushing 6 years old now and the graphics card has begun to fail.  Due to all the upcoming awesome game releases I figured it is beyond time to build a custom rig, I am new at this but I have made my best attempt to compile a build, but figured maybe someone could look it over and give me any advice on where I can cut cost or where I should consider investing more.  My current budget is around $1800 I would like to try to keep it at no more that $1600 so I can get a monitor, although if anyone makes a strong enough case I can hit the $1800 mark, and would be willing to go all the way to $2000.  The main reason for building this desktop is to play Skyrim, SWTOR, and eventually Diablo 3 on max settings without problems.  Appreciate any and all help with this.  Here is the example build I had mentioned earlier, priced out at $1530:

Processor Intel i-5 2500k Sandy Bridge
Motherboard Asus P8Z68
Memory G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
Video Card EVGA Superclocked GTX 570 (AR not TR) *THINK ABOUT GTX 580
Optical Asus 24x
Case Coolermaster HAF
Power Supply Corsair Gaming Series GS800 800W
Monitor Asus VW246H 24"
Hard Drive Western Digital 1TB 7200rpm

Looking for a key still as well, if you could pm me would really appreciate it, been on the border of buying this game since release but have been anxiously waiting a trial, unfortunately my work stopped me from getting a key at curse, so hoping someone still has one they would be willing to part with. Thanks in advance!

*sigh* dude...


I honestly dont know much about it but heard that SOE announced Everquest Next at the FanFaire... Anyone have any more details other than a name?

Sending gits now... send some back my way please, username on their boards is the same as here: kftaurus

Update: Everyone who posted before me has been gifted, anyone after me if you gift I will gift back.

Just wanted to add my experience as well. I had been inactive for nearly 6 months with two different accounts, and I decided to resub. Now both my accounts are obviously tied to my account, I have never had a problem before, I do not go to "fishy" websites as I am very cautious with my computer, I have full internet and virus/adaware/spyware software running, and yet somehow about a day or two after I resubbed I was hacked. They even added an authenticator. Needless to say I was not very happy, I had blizzard deal with it, and reformatted my entire hard drive, just in case. A lot of effort to go through just to make sure it wouldnt happen again. Well about two or three days after jumping through the loops, and changing passwords not only was my account hacked again, but I also received a warning from my email about someone trying to access it from China. Ridiculous! I have cancelled my subscription and do not plan on going back until Blizzard finds a way to take care of this issue, its not like I entirely blame them for everyone getting hacked, dont get me wrong, however, there is no way this could have been an issue on my end. Now, I have been contacted regarding a chargeback on my account as well. Clearly there is something not right, and I refuse to pay the chargeback, it would be crazy to think otherwise. I was looking forward to Diablo 3 and anything else Blizzard throws our way as I am a huge fan of their work, but now to be quite honest I am worried about doing anything involving money on Anyways, just my two cents.

Ok, I very rarely post messages on this board, however, I decided to come out of hiding on this one. I have to say after trying to fill my mmo void since leaving wow, and eve, this game has finally filled that void. If anyone is even considering at least give the trial a go, make sure you get on seradon server and hit up the mmorpg channel, they are very welcoming to all of us. Ill be sitting in there while i finish off my trial before subbing. Hope to see some more of you in game
