Revert back to my title.

That's my whole point for posting on here in the first place, I'm very new to PC Gaming and my rig configuration was based on an educated guess from the leading titles and their highest spec requirements and compiled it from there.

But your cutting answer was soooo helpful and has provided me with the utmost, detailed feedback I could have required.

#Hi All,

I've been thinking about PC Gaming for a long time now and wanted to take the plunge but before I do so, I wanted to get your opinion on this rig I've configured.

  • System Base Price - (£149.17)
  • Zalman MS800-Plus Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (+£30.00)
  • 1000W SuperFlower Leadex GOLD Fully Modular "80 Plus Gold" Power Supply (+£90.00)
  • MSI 990FXA-GD65 AMD FX ATX Motherboard
  • AMD FX 8350 Black Edition, 8 Core, 4.0GHz/4.2GHz, 16MB Cache (+£145.00)
  • Corsair H60 High-Performance CPU Liquid Cooler (+£52.500)
  • 16GB DDR3 1866MHz Memory (2*8GB) Kit (+£145.00)
  • 4GB AMD Radeon R9 290X - 4GD5 Gaming Series Graphics (+£394.99)
  • 120GB SSD (+£57.50)
  • 3TB SATA III 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 64MB Cache, 8ms Hard Drive (+£80.00)
  • Raid 0 Configuration (+£7.50)
  • Pioneer Blu-Ray Writer (+£57.50)

  • Creative Sound Blaster ZX High Performance PCIe Gaming Sound Card (+£90.83)
  • Windows 7 64 Bit Professional (+£90.83)

Do you think there is anything that could be trimmed/changed from that list to enable me to run the highest spec'd game there is on a ultra high setting comfortably?

nothing to see here but more indie garbage

I am so sick of these type of games.Hell i am sick of kickstarter in general.

Currently there is only one,ONLY ONE good game that came out of kickstarter.(Divinity OS)The rest is garbage.

I thought about doing this.

Bought the PS4 on launch day after being won over by the 1080p vs 720p argument.

After six months of almost not playing it all, after realising there were no games out until November 2014, didn't support a 5ghz wireless connection (is a really big point for me after spending shedloads on new Fibre Optic Broadband!) I sold it and bought an Xbox One.

Much better IMHO.

But I won't drag the thread out to become a console war, but my reasons for not keeping the PS4, were connectivity issues and the only appealing release was Playstation Now, which lets you play all older PS3 games. I own a PS3, problem solved.

Grim Fandango

You find me another game that compares and I'll remove this comment.

Spent many a day gripped by this wonderful game and brilliant scenery, dialogue and epic storyline.

@Jag85 And therein lies the problem.

It was too good for it's own good. Maybe part of me believes it should have died a dignified death and stopped when the plaudits were raining upon it.

Now it appears it's a mess that they won't and probably shouldn't bother to get out of.

@Grieverr you make a jolly good point!

People are almost blinded now by the "in" games and would almost be embarrassed to purchase a different game.

I refer again to Call of Duty, but it's games like this that kids/big kids/bigger kids buy because they know no better and to purchase a different game would be pointless as "their mate doesn't own it"

A lot has to be said for online multiplayer too. With a majority of games being heavily exposed to online functionality and multiplayer, why would someone buy a game that isn't as mainstream as the latest CoD as none of their friends have it to play online with.

I think there are some great ideas out there, but unfortunately I fear a lot of these games will stay hidden unless they get the same exposure as the big boys.

@EPICCOMMANDER You're quite entitled to your opinion and I'm glad you enjoy the QTE inserts within RE5/6.

Personally, I think this is something which strips away the originality from the iconic cut scenes from Resident Evil. Cut scenes are there to be admired and provide a bridge between gameplay, I personally don't like the button bashing as it provides nothing, it's just a pointless time filler.

We're nostalgic so and so's who can't get past the motto "If it ain't broke, don't balls it up" or something like that...
