Personally I wouldn't as it's a great card and there would be no need, however I'm one to upgrade only when necessary :P If you want a bit of a performance increase why not try overclocking both the 460 and i7 a bit?

Ive got the play and charge kit, but I only seem to be able to charge the controller, not use it in anyway.shyco
Yeah you can't use the play and charge kit as a connection device for your controller to your PC, you'll need a reciever as the poster above suggested, alternatively you could buy a wired controller. Once you get it sorted I recommend downloading a program like Xpadder, you can map keys to buttons on your controller for games that don't natively support controllers.

It may help, however have you considered adding more case fans to your current case? That'd help increase airflow in and out of the case.

Looks great, 2500k is an awesome processor, but I agree with the other posters apart from the case, I've heard nothing but good things from the antec 900 and I don't think it will disappoint, however the HAF 922 case is also very nice and in my opinion looks better, I used this case when building a system for my friend and it was very practical and good looking but it's up to you, however this is coming from someone who buys cheap £15 cases for his own builds :P

Don't go for a factory overclocked card; that money could easily be spent elsewhere as you can easily overclock yourself using a user-friendly program like Rivatuner.

Lastly, that motherboard if I believe correct can support up to 3 graphics cards in crossfire so it should handle 2 no problem, however I'm not a fan of SLI/ Crossfire and would go with just one card and a slightly lower wattage power supply - about 600W would do the job fine for one of those cards and it'd be cheaper. I'm a budget builder so I always have cash in mind first, so it's up to you whether to listen to me or not :P

Hey I'm building a new computer next week as this one is getting a bit long in the tooth for me, here is the proposed build:

Case:CM Storm Scout

http://www.ebuyer.com/165238-cm-storm-scout-case-120mm-and-2x-140mm-fans-included-sgc-2000-kkn1

Power Supply: Corsair 500W CX V2(Bought it a few months ago for my current PC)

http://www.ebuyer.com/278634-corsair-500w-cx-v2-psu-cmpsu-500cxv2uk

Motherboard: Asus M4A78L AM3+

http://www.ebuyer.com/269076-asus-m5a78l-usb3-amd-socket-am3-8-channel-hd-audio-atx-motherboard-m5a78l-usb3

Processor: AMD FX-6 6100 3.3Ghz

http://www.ebuyer.com/287682-amd-fx-6-6100-black-edition-6-core-3-3ghz-socket-am3-8mb-l3-fd6100wmgusbx

Graphics card: PowerColor HD 6850 1GB

http://www.ebuyer.com/321991-powercolor-hd-6850-1gb-gddr5-pci-e-graphics-card-axp6850-1gbd5-dh

Operating System: Windows 7 Premium 64bit

Hard drive: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB(Again bought it a few months ago for current PC)

Memory: Gskill 8GB RipjawsX

http://www.ebuyer.com/264750-g-skill-8gb-2x4gb-ddr3-1600mhz-ripjawsx-memory-kit-cl9-9-9-9-24-1-5v-f3-12800cl9d-8gbxl

Optical Drive: Samsung SH222AB 22x

Total: £485.06 (excluding the PSU and HDD which I already own as stated)

So what do you guys think? Is there anything you'd change/add? I'm on a budget of under £500 here. Would I also need to flash the BIOS to support the Bulldozer cpu? I've been out of the PC hardware side of things for quite a while so I'm really not sure on how this build looks!

Thanks.

(I had to take all of the links out because I kept getting errors? So frustrating.)

People keep talking about mods will make it better. Did any mods overhaul oblivion's garbage non-reactive combat and turn it into something somewhat tolerable ? I don't think so.

At least if your gonna make a s***ty action game, would it be too much to ask for some decent action ? :x

Actually OOO, Deadly Reflex, Midas Magic were among many, so yes, I think so.

Reinstall and make sure you follow instructions exactly, sounds like you have missing meshes and textures
