I have been playing medal of honour allied assault for a long time...A few days ago I was told if you play online games you can basically through your pc out the window. Is this true?
Can online gaming like mohaa cause problems for your pc?

Who told you?

I cant see how, where did you hear that from?

I have played online games since quake one, never had a problem!

If you do want to play on a safe server, we at Exiled-Gamers.co.uk have a server that rotates the games we play, pop along, and we have a good laugh!

But dont worry about online games causing problem's, mainly Paranoia !

Install a firewall and keep it running.

I play MOHAA when i get 5 mins and only have the firewall running. The AV is switched on as soon as i come out of the game and is also kept up to date.

No-one (except your mate) has ever flagged it as a problem and there are thousands (Millions??) of happy gamers out there.
