    Crysis

    crysis 2 looks miles beter then crysis, your point is invalid. what I was say is there was alot more they could have done with it that they didn't or couldn't because of it being developed for multiple platforms. The original Crysis did things that most PC's at the time couldn't handle and alot still don't run it to it's top potential Crysis 2 on the other hand was dumbed down so that an of the shelf at your local best buy computer could run it at max settings making a game look prettier doesnt make it better than the original, kinda like friday the 13th was a far better movie than Jason X

    Crysis

    Crysis set the bar in PC gaming then they decided to jump on the console band wagon with crysis 2 and it's impossible to do what they did with the first one on consoles (without completely frying them) so we PC gamers get thrown a disappointing product.
  3. I'm curious as to what 3D monitor doesn't have high resolution. As for your GPU I feel that really comes down to personal preference theses days, the Radeon cards tend to be cheaper than the nvidia cards. In my own opinion and personal experience cheaper all too often equals lower quality. In the past ATI drivers have had a bad record with buggy drivers, however since AMD acquired them I've heard that has changed. Personally I still prefer Nvidia over the AMD Radeon cards. The performance differences aren't too far apart and the Radeon make for an attractive lower cost alternative. That said I would recommend putting the video card upgrade on hold until you've got that 920 overclocked. It overclocks quite well i've had mine up to 4.4ghz stable on water cooling and run it at 4.2ghz 24/7 overclock. It would probably be better to spend some money on a more efficient cooling solution now and have it for future builds than to continue dreaming of it.

    What were your last upgrades?

    I may make some upgrades to my case in the future but it will never be completely replaced Mountain mods Ascension is awesome like that

    What were your last upgrades?

    last upgrade was in November when i up'd my memory from 6GB triple channel to 12 GB triple channel swapped out the 3 old WD 400 GB HDD's for 4- 256 GB crucial SSD's, video cards from a gtx 560 ti and an old gtx 260 for physics to 2 ASUS GTX680's new fans for my rads and a logysis 6 channel fan controller oh yeah and a blu ray burner (had to retire my trusty old IDE optical drives due to failure )

    Gun control

    Even though this may have been said somewhere in the last 21 pages of this thread, most of the time the person(s) doing the shooting DID NOT acquire the weapons thru legal means. Sso making the laws stricter for law abiding citizens will still have no effect on the criminals essentially taking guns out of legal hands so that the only people who have them are the criminals. And that just makes a world of sense now doesn't it. So your home can be invaded by some criminal who purchased a firearm from the trunk of some car, but you won'y be able go out and legally purchase one from a store so that you can be prepared for such an event.

    Ok so i couldnt wait

    LOL i saw this post and I had to get folding again myself so I went and downloaded the new software (haven't folded in a couple years) and dont remember it being so easy to get folding on both gpu's and the cpu. So kudo's to stanford for making a huge update to their software. On another note i should probably set my rig outside where its only 18

    ci7 920 OC wont go 4.0GHz

    About your temps since no one asked "that i saw anyway" what is your specific cooling solution? It seems to me that it is inadequate to say the least if your temps are going that high unless its extremely hot in the room you have your machine setup in. my rig is running @ 4.2 GHz (200 X 21) with 1.422 VCORE (stable) and my temps are only 25

    looking for G19 App

    Hey guys i was just wondering if anyone knew of a good app for the logitech G19 lcd that would display CPU AND GPU temps in the same app. I've searched the net and all i can find are some that only display one or the other but not both.

    looking for G19 App

    Oh.............. a forum link that has links to dead sites that's helpful i haven't already found any of those after 3 days of searching on Google. Also I'd rather not have to pay for anything or make it my self using some other software as I'm not a programmer. hopefully someone may have some relevant info on this since all i find are dead links or stuff ya have to pay for
  20. just wanted to see what kind of answers or comments this might raise why is it that video card manufacturers make the side of the card that in most computers will never be seen look so nice and leave just a plain somewhat ugly pcb looking up at us in the side window of our towers ?
  21. How much of performance loss would be associated with PCI-E 3.0 cards on a PCI-E 2.0 board ?
  22. I think I read somewhere once that the holes are the same for both sockets but was wondering about whether the backplate for my d-tek fuzion v2 would work safely on the socket 2011 boards since i cant find any 2011 brackets for it I already have the 1366 brackets from my ramapge II extreme board but was planning on upgrading to a socket 2011 board Namely the ASUS Rampage IV but dont know if I need to get a new waterblock altogether if what I have will still work
