I have the itch to get back to DayZ but I am also goofing off on a bunch of random crap on Gary's Mod as well as playing Far Cry and Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West which is pretty fun for a $2.49 game.

I bet I have the same one.

You can build a good PC for $600


that's pretty much it but my wife liked the idea that I could build the other one for less than 400 without the extra 6670

Give it a shot though. I'm open to all sorts of new ideas.

OK Gotcha.

I just haven't read too much about what that combo is performing like on games. I have a 7950 and a game like Far Cry 3 on Ultra can push it especially while I am recording. My main monitor is only 1920x1080 too.

What it looks like Valve wants to do here is run a closed system that you can upgrade and mod (but not to PC level). I'm for it/

Is that just the APU with no crossfired card?

Place is getting real crowded.

Nintendo not leaving the gaming only niche may hurt them this generation.

Yea it will be a proprietary system but that's not a bad thing. I will probably always just build my own PC but this is great for others to get onto Steam.

Interesting. You know you need more than 8GBs of ram for the APU to run correctly and that you need at least 1866MHZ...right?

Just making sure you get the right stuff. Maybe we can get on some DayZ when you get it set up.

nah, I always have a computer to play on and a console to play on.. always have, always will, with Steam having their own console, I can now actually buy 1 game in one place and play it in both places.

I'm out of the PC market for a while, but I'm sure Stout has. He is a deal finding wizard.
