HP desktops are fine, I bought one, and it runs fairly well. I did have to replace the video card after two years, but it's fine now.

I bought one in 2004, it's still my main vessel, I would buy another HP.... But it has had some troubles over the years. SP2 and SP3 cause it to become unstable, so I run Sp1 only and never do any updates.

Several of them exist for tribes. Whether or not they will work for you is impossible to predict.

try just using this rather than a tribes disk to installhttp://dfclan.org/downloads/Tribes2009.zip

Ok so far i downloaded the zip file put it in a folder on desktop.
sounds dumb but now what to do .There is a button at the top that says exract all.

extract it whereever u want.. make a folder called tribes and extract it in there.
the zip contains an already installed already updated version of tribes

Made a folder on desktop extract the zip file in it now have a folder with
17 file folders - base -config -recordings- temp -console.cs -infinitspawn and so on

Those are all the folders with files in them that are needed to run Tribes. When in the main folder scroll down till you find a Tribes.exe, then create a shortcut and put it on your desktop.
