[QUOTE="raweewat"]

Does anybody know if the next gen graphics card (HD8000s, GTX700s or whatever) are going to be much more powerful than the current ones? I can't decide whether to wait for a while or build one right now, especially given that the next gen consoles are going to come out soon. I was planning to get an HD7970 and i7 3770k but then I thought maybe the gap between this and the PS4 probably isn't large enough to justify the price.

tormentos
You will see a difference in frames and resolution,the 7970 can hit 1080p higher than 60FPS on BF3,on 2560x1600 like 43FPS,the PS4 could probably hit 60 on 1080p the same game,but on 2560x1600 i don't think it will hit even 30,but who knows,the PS4 has more video ram than than all 7970 models,most of the models of 7970 had 3GB of GDR5 ram,but had more bandwidth than the PS4 and a bigger bus,the 6GB version cost $579 the cheapest $400. Also the investment will not be cheap vs the PS4,you would not probably get what you pay for relative to pricing.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116501 Your CPU $329 dollars. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&N=100006676&isNodeId=1&Description=7970&x=0&y=0 GPU from $400 to $579. So basically for your GPU and CPU alone you have more than $700 dollars,and you still missing,mother board,case,power supply,ram,windows and controllers,either be keyboard and mouse or normal controller.

Thanks for the details. That's what I kind of thought. I guess the best time for a new build is towards the middle of consoles' life cycle.

I'm getting this as soon as the price drops below £30. If it were 7+ hours long I would've bought it right away. Damn shame

I'd start over. That ring is PRECIOUS. You're not that far into the game anyway right?

Use a shield with 100% physical protection. You should be able to block his combo if you lower your shield to let your stamina regenerate in between hits. Watch out for is his sword spin move which will break your guard (unless you're using a greatshield with ridiculously high stability). Roll away if you suspect he's about to do the sword spin.

Too late for the tail, man. Obsidian Greatsword isn't even good. Just let it go.

Hi, i've never owned a gaming console before although i've rented a ps2 from my friends in the past.:)

i found the ps3 160gb model selling on Amzon UK for 196 quid. Is this a good deal? I mean will the price go down in the near future?

Also, any recommendation on an hd tv would be muchappreciated! I'm looking for a really small tv set so that it'd fit ina tiny room i rented. Small size but good resolution is a combination that's hard to come by i guess?

thanks alot!
