Rockstar did talk about a PC version but said the Physic's would be hard to emulate on PC. BUT they are looking for PC only developers. So they may be looking into getting it done.

So it could be that they're looking for PC developers that could port LA Noire to the PC and not Red Dead Redemption, or perhaps both? I can dream... even though I played RDR on the 360 and I had a blast.. I would buy it again on the PC.

Rockstar games have always played better on consoles, IMO.

But just wait, it'll be out in a few months

That's because they probably rushed the port and didn't put as much effort as they could have. Maybe they could learn from GTA IV and release a great PC port of LA Noire. I'd hate to see a game with incredible technology go to waste by not showing up on the PC. I will wait until it hits PC. I heard that there's a good chance it will make it to that platform.

They didn't complain about Killzone 2 though:P

Killzone 2 has very sluggish gunplay I've ever seen. How do you make an FPS and not nail the gunplay? Everything is slow, sluggish, and unresponsive.

I was only able to search MX-2 on newegg.com. I guess I'll go with that one. Thanks again.

I'd stay away from Artic Silver 5. Its conductive so your screwed if you get any on your componets. I'd go witih Artic Cooling MX3. I use that and its non-conductive.

plenty of people pair intel processors with amd gfx cards. About every single hardware reviewer does. I do :D

Jermone123
What is an AMD Graphics card? I thought there are only ATi and Nvidia? Sorry, I'm slow. :(

An aftermarket heatsink is never necessary. It just cools the CPU better than a stock heatsink, prolonging the life of the hardware. You could overclock your CPU without an aftermarket heatsink, although the temperatures would likely cause a lot of BSODs and drastically shorten the life of your CPU. I always recommend using an aftermarket heatsink with some Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste because the lower temperatures will make your clocks more efficient, extend the life of your hardware, and cause your computer to be more responsive with less blue screens of death due to high temperatures. The thermal paste is just as important as the heat sink and Arctic Silver 5 is the most bang for your buck out there. I've seen drops as high as 10-15 degrees C after simply switching thermal paste because the stock paste that comes with a stock heatsink is so inefficient.

In short, it would do you well to buy a decent aftermarket heatsink and Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste. If you don't want to spend a lot, even getting the thermal paste alone helps as it's around 5 dollars a tube which will last you 5 or 6 changes.

Thank you. I have already added the Arctic Silver 5 compound. I'm still going to leave the option of the V8 aftermarket heatsink for later. I've never had a gaming PC without one, but the last gaming PC I built I overclocked pretty much everything. With this new build, I do not plan to overclock at all. But if I do decide to overclock the CPU later down the road, I'll be sure to grab the V8.

[QUOTE="kozzy1234"]

I dont know how the singleplayer coudl be any better? Its frigging amazing.

Why change one of the greatest regarded RTS games ever?

To me its not crazy revoulationary, but it does everything extremely well. The story telling is the best ive ever seen in a RTS game, Blizzard has made it so others have to step up there campaign and story telling now. Not to mention this editor is one of hte best on the market right now.

This game surpassed any expectation I had to be honest.

If thye made CRAZY HUGE changes then people would say "WHY DIDNT THEY STICK TO WHATS WORKS!". Just like people have done with C+C and to some degree Dawn Of War2.

The level of polish in Starcraft2 is amazing, along with the top notch voice acting, tons of variety in campaign, gameplay, the online is crazy and amazing campaign, I personalyl couldnt ask for anything more.

Im not even a big fan of online RTS games but this game is just fantastic just with the campaign and the editor to me personally.

Mograine

Finished the campaign yet?

After you see the ending CGI, the idea of comparing other RTS games' campaigns with SC2's will make you roll on the floor laughing at the one who tries to do the comparison.

I'm so pumped up for this game. I need to go buy it. I'm kinda saving it for my vacation in September though. I dont think I could hold off that long though. It almost hurts to not play it right now.

Might as well have gone here to PC Hardware forum and ask one of us to help you out. We would have suggested you take that $50 and buy a better Power Supply. ;)

My stock intel fan was fine, just a bit noisy if your cracked up the RPM's.

Sweet. I am reassured. I've been cutting here and there to see where I can save money. No need to throw away money I could spend on food or more games. I'm really satisfied with the extra time I spent to see where I can I save more. Initially, my build was 1,439.00. This is after taxes and shipping. Now it's down to $1,149.00 which makes me happy. :P
