It went together without a hitch and even loaded Vista rather smoothly. The problem was after I had loaded some of my older games (Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries and Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2). None of them would run. They would bring up the screen where I could adjust the graphics before starting the game, but when I hit continue the game would crash. The rest of the PC seems to be fine, but the games don't work. In some cases (Mechwarrior) it doesn't even recognize that it even crashed!
My Motherboard's onboard graphics chipset should've been more than enough to handle those old games (in fact KotOR2 has a program that gauges your system compatibility with the game and I passed with flying colors!). Anyone have a clue what's going on?
Well, maybe this is what I get for breaching with the Cult of Mac so I could still play my beloved PC games....
