Anyways, just post your steam name here. We can add you.
Also, Jester I would say BC2 is alot more CPU intensive than GPU, just ask strud. He has experience from going from Q6600 to i7 and his FPS doubled or something like that.
I know BC2 is more CPU intensive, but you can't skimp out on the GPU for that game either. Especially in DX11.
Is he getting a DX11 GPU?
DirectX 11 or DX11 is Microsoft's latest and greatest rendering software. Only the newest graphics processing units (GPUs, also known as graphics cards, video cards, video graphics adapter, etc.) have the hardware to run DX11. These graphics cards include the NVIDIA GeForce 400 series and the ATI Radeon HD 5000 series. NVIDIA is way behind with their DX11 video cards - they only have enthusiast and performance/gamer cards, the GTX 480, GTX 470, GTX 465 (on its way to being discontinued), GTX 460 1GB and GTX 460. ATI has a much larger and complete lineup. But NVIDIA's cards are considerably faster than ATI cards in the same price range, hell they're even faster than more expensive ATI cards especially in DX11. The downside is their increased heat and power consumption which are constantly exaggerated.
Don't keep the conversation to Steam. Loads of this stuff is useful for guests that are searching around Google and the forums.
Otherwise, Nice choices.
In store pickup FTL. There is no in store Microcenter near me. But lucky you!
there's one near Boston in Cambridge which is about .......1hr from me. it's like a 'high-tech Wal-Mart'. EVERYTHING right there at your fingertips....waiting for your Visa card. lol
Jester, there's a Micro-Center maybe 1-2 hours away from you.
The one in Yonkers is little bit farther than that, but yeah I think when the time comes I will go check it out, maybe for an i7 930 if the price is similar.
hey campers, is this a good deal ? i dont know all there is to know about these but i wanna get everything together for 'The Build'. what CANT this do ? and is it an excellent price?
That's a VERY good deal. Same exact drive I have but I paid around $28
I have the same one its great 🙂
