re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts

I'm not paying $400 so I can buy 1 game. There needs to be a few games out for me to justify paying that. Since I can play most on pc the exclusives have to pile up for me.

It doesn't need to be strong. I am probably just going to use this 660 in it until I move my 7970 to it when I get one of the Hawaii cards coming out. I just need a CPU that won't bottleneck either of those cards.


Even an i3 wouldn't bottleneck the cards -- but if you're playing anything that uses more CPU power than normal, that would be an issue.

Why not just get an 1155 ITX board and look for a sandy or ivy on ebay? Almost identical game performance to the Haswell equivalent, and cheaper.

It depends on what you're using as a cooler now. Even all-in-ones use at least 2 fans, plus pump noise. It'd probably be quieter than a stock cooler.

What kind of cooler do you have on your graphics card? That's usually the biggest source of noise.

I will probably just go with that AMD 750K and an FM2 Asrock board. Got to stay loyal to my AMD for now and it would be a much cheaper option anyway. That 750K is also supposed to OC well.

I have an ASRock A85X iTX which is awesome. Thing has a ton of SATA ports for just iTX, want to say 4xSATAIII and 2xSATAII.

Yeah same here.. my work load has been insane. 6-9 at the office then checking through emails until 10-11 when I get home.

I plan to treat myself with a 4960X/Aqualis Res/Aquacomputer RADs when my current project whines down. Nothing like slowly piecing a new PC together just in time for the new holiday titles.

EDT: Anyone playing FFXIV?

Been busy with work and finishing the guide that's ridiculously massive and probably pointless.

Mine is just cranking up again but I have a feeling it will not stop anytime soon. Getting back into the swing of being a contractor after a 3 year hiatus and venture in the gas station business. Hired my old crew back, contacted all my old subs, found a few Mexicans laborers, and bought some new equipment. Also about to reactivate my Realtor license so I can double dip on some projects I am doing.

The only thing I don't have is an old warehouse I used to lease for dirt cheap but I will work out of my shop at my house for now until I need something bigger and more centrally located.

That game will be a perfect holiday game.

Nothing better than playing a new game during the winter on a cold/wet day. The holiday season is the "gaming season".

For $37.50 it was the perfect preorder.
