Every looks good besides the SSD, and you might want to bump up the wattage of the PSU to allow Overclocking and longer lifespan and upgrade options in the future.

Here's an SSD option

That definitely won't happen with Far Cry 3 or any game for that matter lol. Hell, you'll be able to play "Watch Dogs" a couple of years from now and be fine. And, I know what ya mean. ;)

#7 Posted by 10knuckles01 (165 posts) -

10knuckles01
its just space amount . But 128gb is more then enough for your OS, programs and a few games, while that 2tn drive will hold most of the game and storage data.

lol, The 360/PS3 haven't been able to produce graphics and performance quality equal to Pc gaming gpu's for a long time. The consoles still haven't been able to outpace my old Geforce 8800GT from 2007 which is more then 10x slower then today's top end Pc gpu's, but is 3x faster then what the consoles have for gpus. Just to give an idea how behind consoles are just take for example Metro 2033, consoles only can use 1Mpix textures when the lowest setting on Pc in 2 Mpix, while 6 to 9 Mpix texture settings is the normal usage for pc gamers.

Yes its for real, I have a GTX 560 and can it BF3 with a mix of high and ultra settings. And a GTX 670 is over 2x faster.

Have fun

im running bf3 right now on MAX, and i mean everything possible max settings on my 7970 at stock speeds and I have yet to see my frames drop lower than 60. This is in single player campaign mode, havent tried multiplayer. It is a best of a card and costs less than the 670 and the 680 but out performs both and comes with 3 free games.

#16 Posted by 10knuckles01 (165 posts) -

just checked out ur card and it comes in at $100 more than the 670???

#17 Posted by blaznwiipspman1 (6093 posts) -

damn australia sucks...i paid $372 after tax for mine, it came with 3 free games ($170 value) and an addition $40 mail in rebate. I also got an addition 5% cash back since I paid through paypal. Pretty awesome deal for the fastest video card on the market. Guess AMD's crappy cpu's have made them desperate :D

If nvidia doesn't drop their prices soon i'm probably going to pick up a 7970 next month.
