Recently, my computer has been running slowly. There’s no viruses (virii?) on it, its relatively well optimized, but it just can’t keep up with the demands I’ve been placing on it. I should buy some more RAM for it eventually.
In the mean time, I still would like to play Left 4 Dead, my favorite game this year (so far). It has, however, become incredibly annoying to play the game for about 30 minutes, only to have it start to take its toll on my system; My computer would overheat, or overcache, or something, and would start to drop frames (i.e. there were blips every second or so). Naturally, I went a-digging and found this neat little modification, so to speak, that will up your performance (Thanks to my brother for the find). On top of that, I found some other things that might interest you like hints, tips, and discounts (thats right, discounts) for Left 4 dead.
