  • fivoroth said: Is WoW going to be the last P2P MMO? It seems WoW is the only game that can make the P2P model work.   ESO, B&S, Tera, FireFall, WildStar, Aion, L2, AOC, Rift, PS2, EQ2, EQ, LotRO, SW:TOR, Defiance, Trove, ArcheAge,…
  • Honestly, if your only problem is that you can't play at maxed out settings with what you have right now, I would hold off. At least till Arctic Islands and Pascal come out (sometime next year) to spend your hard earned money on a brand new high end…
  • A 650w PSU is plenty enough for the latest of the nVidia line up.
  • Quizzical said: I would say that a game that can't run well at minimum settings on a Radeon HD 7870/Radeon R9 270X is doing something severely wrong.  Reducing the base amount of CPU power that it takes to run a game isn't trivial to d…

  • Reizla said: Ridelynn said: Glad to hear you got it sorted out. Fans go out all the time, it's just as PC gamers, we usually upgrade our components before they get that old True, but this fan was just over 1 year old. Looking at…
  • At $400 you have three options available:  - One 1440p 60Hz monitor.  Choose this for bumping up to a higher resolution.  - Add two more 1080p monitors for surround gaming/multi-tasking if you currently have a 19x10 already.  - Third choice is an…
  • Loke666 said: It would be better to just start with a SSD and get the HD a month or 2 later, OP wont need all the space right away. A separate SSD is better and I don't take hardware advices from Blade. And if OP have an old computer he can j…
  • jesteralways said: Instead of buying SSD and HDD why not buy SEAGATE SSHD? I read several reviews and all of them says these SSHD are quite the bargain for price and also very good for gaming. Like Blade is to vampires "all of their st…
  • Gdemami said: booniedog96 said: The fact is: The OP used a PSU calculator and came up with a decision for his PSU on his own.  He saw what was needed and made an educated decision based on facts.  I didn't tell him what he needed to bu…

  • petedo said: OK, my bad. It is $190 before rebate and $180 with rebate. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SD9KZCI/?&tag=pcpapi-20&th=1 That makes it $40 difference instead of $50, before you brought the rebate thing in. That won't change…
  • petedo said: If I count in the rebate, the price of GTX 960 can drop as low as $160, making 4GB version you picked even more unfavourable. http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/video-card/#c=208&sort=a8&page=1&r=2048 I've made it…
  • petedo said: booniedog96 said: Having a 4GB GPU is nice if you are into moding games and it's only about $20 more than a 2GB base 960 MSRP.  If the 4GB card had a $60 - $100 difference then it could be an issue but it's only an additio…

  • Gdemami said 298W at "normal load", 250W for GTX 960.... http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gtx-960,4038-8.html 100W from 84W non-overclockable CPU is even more ignorant claim. Please do some research first, you are giving ill …
  • BTrayaL said: Try this PSU calculator if you like: http://www.bequiet.com/en/psucalculator Awesome link, thank you. I guess a 550W should do just fine, at 56% load. No problem, glad it helped with your decision.
