    bc2 and mw2 can be backed up through steam go to steam tab and then backup. when you install new os download and install steam and then go to steam and restore simple. you will need to reload punkbuster too.

    You can backup your COD4 and COD5 profiles so you don't lose your rank. I'm not on my gaming computer right now and I'd have to get on it and poke around to find the right directory. Its a small file. Do you still play COD4 and COD5?

    When are you planning on redoing the OS?

    How old is your computer? Seems to be that you've always been pretty competitive with it.

    I'm not sure what your upgrade options are for your graphics and CPU, but being that its only two years old, you probably have some options. Obviously upgrading the card would be the most effective, however you'll need to determine if your CPU will support the faster card in the sense of not bottlenecking it. In other words, just because you slap a much better graphics card in doesn't mean you'll realize 100% of the performance gain. Your CPU has to be able to keep up with the card. What kind of CPU do you have?

    I got five years out of my last computer. I did one CPU and one video card update. In all I got a lot of use out of it for a total of around $2000 spent over 5 years.

    Ok and tell me how that is not enough???

    Your running the equivalent of me and I still pump at everything I play....

    Stick with that for now. maybe in a year or when you ACTUALLY NEED a better system get something then... We will probably have 12 core CPUs and a standard of 24GB of RAM in our systems then. lol
