Re: System Optimization

Its nice that mobo makers make these tweaking programs cause no one uses them lol. To me nothing beats good ole bios overclocking. If you dont know how to there are hundreds of guides on the net. Also if you dont have one invest in a nice cooler for your cpu!

Re: Far Cry 2

IMHO Crysis overall looks better than Farcry 2. One thing i hate in farcry 2 is when you turn the grass turns too to keep the view angle at one perspective. They are still 2d and not full 3d blades. Stand next to a object with grass next to it and turn and watch the blades twist right through the ob...

Re: Building mid-range gaming system to replace 5+ year old box

I would get a cheaper processor,get a 4850, and get a x48 mobo. This way if you want to add a second card later you will 2 full 16x pci express slots unlike the 2 8x mode on the p45 boards... I would recomend the Gigabyte x48 DS4, thats what i have and i couldnt be more pleased with it. Around $230 ...
