Oh, this thread bump reminds me...|
Sunday I popped in to Novatech, Reading and bought a new kit to build.
MSI GTX 580 Lightning
4gb Corsai 13** ram (plan to get another 4gb when paid)
1tb seagate drive (SSD in the new year)
Corsair 850w PSU
Coolermaster Enforcer case (love it)
All for just over £1k
This is purely a gaming PC which I run through a 24" Dell and 27" iMac screen for 2560x1440 play. My iMac 2010 is for everything else.
Everything, and I mean everything, runs incredible. The ONLY game which I have to turn any setting down is Witcher 2, the Ubersampling bit, it's about 10fps to low at 25fps with that on.
Games I have tried so far. Battlefield 3,Crysis, Deus Ex HR, Witcher 2, Crysis 2 (with hi-res pack), AvP, C&C4, SCII, GTA IV, ACII, Fallout: NV, Bioshock 2, Amnesia, Dead Space 2, Homefront, Portal 2, Bad Company 2, AvP, Brink, MW2, Borderlands & Mass Effect 2.
It's great to have a proper PC for gaming again. I gave it up about 3-4 years back being fed up of issues but I just miss it to much. Well chuffed I am.
