Why have you PC guys never shown me this?





Awesome Game Mods

I am so downloading this one today

I <3 western games!

I only looked through the first 5 or so pages last night when I found this before falling asleep but it has so many awesome mods I want to try out. I plan on going through them all today.

Thought everyone used mods for Skyrim and Crysis.

ETA:

FYI make sure you have 2+ GB of VRAM if you are running textures on high. Some of those mods use a ton of VRAM.

Right but my point is I had no idea a site like that, with the ability to just browse a ton of different mods, existed. Most of the mods I see on there are for games like Half Life. At least the more popular one sare.

These mods brought us Counter Strike and Day of Defeat. Both are now stand alone titles. You can't stress enough the effect the Half Life series has had for PC gaming.

Yep terrible right?

It is advertised at 4GB but it is only 2GB per GPU so the bandwidth is only 2GB.

I don't play on surround anymore like I did with my 2 x 4GB 670s so I'm good. Can not wait until the 780 is released so I can dumb the damn 690 with VRAM restrictions.

March-May

We will probably start seeing reference 3GB 780s in March sometime. I don't think it will hit until May like last though. The 6XX series is still selling great from reports.
