Hmm, I'll have some money to spend post exam time. What do you guys think:

1) HD7970 + fullcover waterblock and backplate

2) GTX670 + fullcover waterblock and backplate

3) Wacom Cintiq 12WX or equivalent

4) Sony MA900

As of right now, I'm feeling that option 1. But then again, I want a new GPU.

 

That sony is also nice.

Dead Island sure looks nice with supersampling.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, some of the texture work is pretty impressive.

 

It's really a shame it doesn't support MSAA, though. It'd be nice to squeeze a little more image quality out.

What FPS you getting from it?

 

I thought DI was a good game, it may have been a bit too open but not enough open for some though.

Get a constant 60, so it really does look great in motion. The animation of the trees and grass blowing in the wind are what really does it.

 

I like the game, but it's difficulty gets frustrating, so I ended up just using a trainer. biggrin.gif

Really? I didn't find it that hard?

 

It's fun to make all the weapons and everything. 

 

Were you the one that was very excited for love live?

What kind of rig are you running? Those screenshots look fantastic.

The controls don't really lend themselves well to precise controls, so I would always just be hitting air, or hitting their chest when going for the head. I'd end up wasting so much stamina like that I'd get overwhelmed by enemies, and end up dying.

Nothing special, just an Athlon II X4 2.9GHz, 4GB of RAM, and a GTX 650 Ti 2GB.

I'm also currently running Windows 8 (upgraded from Windows 7 using that program Microsoft had). There's a lot of compatibility issues with using it right now so I wished I stayed with 7...

Ah I see. I'll go grab a copy of DI. Hehe. :)

I love Windows 8 for the reason it has a better foundation (just more polished) than Win 7, has built in multi-monitor scaling (no more need for 3rd party programs), and gets rid of the ugly Aero Glass (that's just my opinion on it). Metro I'm on the fence with. There are programs out there that return the start button anyways (free or paid, all work very well).

Aside from having to reinstall 3dsMAX, 3dcoat and Topogun I'm not having any problems. Seems a little faster than 7 as well.

Every Ass Creed game has terribad console port controls. I have the first and second from a steam sale. I never got past the intro mission on either because the controls just sucked so badly. I wish I could sell or trade them for a decent game.
