Considering just buiying a 2500k. I really think that's plenty of power anyways.

I had planned to. But I don't want to wait any longer than that. >.>

grats though, man
let us know how everything runs when you get everything set up.

I'm installing all my games now. I'm about to tinker with overclocking and I'll post some furmark framerates

Also, 920/1150 clocks and I get 52fps on furmark.
I need some better case fans though, not really enough air movement going on for these. On the up side, my 2500k runs almost 20*c cooler than my c2q.

hell, redownloading any of my games would be a pain >.>
fans are for sissies. make a mineral oil submersed case, i hear they're all the rage.
hilariously, those still need fans >.>

Battlefield 3 and Skyrim are huge.
Posted 24 February 2012 - 09:10 PM
battlefield three, i have no idea. skyrim is surprisingly smaller than one would expect from a game like that >.> less than nine gigs before you add in patches/dlc/mods.
so many mods.
Posted 24 February 2012 - 09:15 PM
BF3 is over 15 gigs.
I'm going to make skyrim so fucking pretty after this. >.>

wow. i knew it had to be large. matt's 360 copy came with a second disc just to add higher res textures to his hdd. hey, maybe now you can go balls to the wall on your settings and get into a 64 player match?
i've pretty much maxed mine out for my card, i think. after i play long enough, i run out of vram >___> simple fix is just restart the game, but still hilarious to see when it happens. and flippy showed me damn near every mod i have equipped, too <__<
Posted 24 February 2012 - 09:30 PM
awesome. I'll have 2gb of vram, GDDR5 too, so that shouldn't be a problem. I'll be looking for all the .ini tweaks too that are available on an ati card.

good luck on that.
here's something that may be of interest: http://skyrim.nexusm.../file.php?id=11

Also, realized the other day that my back fan wasn't plugged in things are even cooler now in the case.
