Smarter buy will be the 7950 on Tuesday anyway or this if dips below 500.00 (it was 619.00 a couple weeks ago) since the performance is similar to the 7950 (at stock speeds) but comes with a lifetime warranty.

yeah, hoping the price will drop on that card though when the 7950 comes out Tuesday since they have similar performance. The 7950 is 469.00 OC'd with a non reference cooler. EVGA lifetime warranty and Nvidia driver reliability is hard to pass up though unless its for the 7970 but you can't find those(from Asus or MSI). They just charge your debit card then email you a week later saying they don't have it in stock.

580 and 7970 both are beast. personally i would lean towards the warranty side since these cards will be around for a little bit.

Shouldn't I be getting 8k? That's the best Nvidia card on the market. I mean it's a "Classified" version. I heard it was the same graphics card SEAL Team 6 used in the Bin Laden raid yet it fails on the benchmark.

7.5 WI? I should have gotten a i7 like Spot. I overclocked to 4.5 GHz but got scared (this motherboard has an "'automatic" feature that does all the work for you, you just pick the speed). I don't really trust that though.

On the plus side SWTOR loads 8-12 seconds full server from anywhere. I get 100 FPS+ max settings but it's not capped there. PvP literally runs/looks like a new game.

I'll never advocate buying from a boutique like Falcon NW etc again. I'm a complete noob, plugged in 8-10 parts and it was good to go. The huge pain was installing the CPU cooler.

I probably screwed up on the thermal paste cause the 3rd core on the CPU run 8-10 C hotter than the other 3 during load.


I expected more. MOAR

100 FPS + MAX Settings bet the game is amazing

I hate you. Hopefully somewhere down the road I will have some money set aside for a computer. Gaming laptops just don't cut it.

X ipad LOL..

Yeah what a strange year for games. So many games that I had hopes in. Funny thing is, the game that still has some play in it is a game that most people won't even try. (secret world). I might load up some Starcraft. you have it ST?
