PC Gaming thread.

Welcome to the PC Gaming Thread!

 

 

Now I know there is a PS3 discussion thread and an Xbox 360 discussion thread.

 

So thought it was about time us PC gamers had an area to talk about...

 

  • Upcoming Games
  • Latest Releases
  • Modding
  • Favourite Games
  • Gaming set up
  • How you feel as a PC gamer.


If you ever need advice on any of the above then this should be your first stop for all your PC gaming needs.

 

So go ahead and get chatting!

Legally speaking yes I would have go thought with it, but with 8 watchers already I highly doubt they will go too cheap lol... I will be happy with anything around £150 plus because I normally donate my old kit to family, so any cash is better than nothing. :)

You have to legally go through with it?

 

I don't. LOL

 

If the item didn't sell for what I expected I just cancel it and say the item was damaged and no longer available. :D

Sorry, I only accept money. :p

 

I ordered the 7970 today, I am really confused about the power figures that every place keeps listing. 300W on full load? They are getting really efficient and the same for the new nVidia's coming out soon! I did think about waiting for the new 680's but they only had 2048MB, I like adding mods to my games so kinda need more than that :(

All this 680 is faster than 7970 is aload of poo lol all reviewers have been testing a 680 that comes 1ghz overclock out the box against 7970 thats 900mhz. if you look up some reviews where both cards are OC 7970 wins alot.

Both cards at stock level the 680 is faster in most games apart from Metro and Dirt.  OC'ing theres more variation in the results and the 7970 comes out slightly stronger, but both cards trade blows in different games.

Not really looking to overclock mine, I lock everything to 60fps anyway because that is my HDTV's native refresh rate. I just wanted the RAM :)

 

EDIT: I noticed on some sites there were people getting really aggressive on the topic of which is better, I thought they should calm down and and reassess their priorities haha

Got my HD 7970 today, so decided to do a bit of frapping. It is almost impossible to go below 60fps despite maxing the graphics out and having the footage recorded at the same time :D

Would love to buy a 7970 but can't afford one at the mo, I am pretty impressed with the 5870 had one since launch and it still plays new games @ 1920x1080 (BF3's pushing it though!)

Forgot about the possibility of a Steam Easter sale, still got games from the Xmas sale I haven't played yet! Can't complain when you're only paying £4 for games.

I'm also gonna see if I can download Project: CARS, that game looks insanely good. Essentially it is GT5 on steroids in the graphics department but I think you have to make an "investment" to get the full graphics unlocked Alpha version :(

And to further burst your bubble I don't think there has ever been a Steam Easter sale and doubt there will be one this year.
