    I play @ 1080p on a 52" Samsung lcd and I think the picture looks pretty incredible when I max out my games. That said, one of my good friends plays on a 27" 1440p monitor (Asus I think) and let me ...

    Freespace 1 and 2, the original Thief games, and probably Skyrim to see how it looks.

    CPU and motherboard sockets don't match up. 1155's were Sandy/Ivy Bridge boards. If you're going Haswell, swap that to an 1150 mobo.

    I've got the same cpu as you, but have it paired with Crossfire 7950's. While I normally run my Sandy Bridge at 4.3Ghz, even when it's running at stock, there aren't many games I can't max out and st...

    Looks interesting, but with Broadwell (K and E) and Skylake (K and E), in Intel's future, I doubt they're "scared". That said, it'll be interesting to see how well they compare against each other.

  • joseph_mach posted a message in the forum topic CPU advice. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    Just out of curiosity, what's your reason for wanting to upgrade? Are you wanting to play a few modern games, just finding your computer sluggish, etc? If it's gaming, maybe adding a bit more RAM, ...

  • joseph_mach posted a message in the forum topic CPU advice. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I wouldn't say it's a HUGE improvement, but it is a better processor. It's a quad core, that overclocks fairly well. If you can't afford to swap out to a new motherboard/socket, and can find a q660...

    Yup. I totally agree with you TC. The days of local co-op seem to be fading away. I understand that online gaming has since taken the driving wheel when it comes to multiplayer, but there's still ...

    wow, that's a tough one. Both are great games, but I'd have to give the slightest of edges to Icewind Dale. Either way though, you couldn't go wrong.
