    Upgrading from 570 SLI

    Ah now I see, thanks for your help Dasa, looks as if the 570 SLI sits between the 7970 and 780, so upgrading is gonna be quite expensive as you pointed out earlier. I will leave off an upgrade until the 780 successor comes out :) Cheers.

    Upgrading from 570 SLI

    Oh ok, I though 570SLI was only about as fast as a 680.. Cheers.

    Upgrading from 570 SLI

    Thanks for the advice Dasa, you don't think one 780GTX will be worth the money?

    Upgrading from 570 SLI

    Thanks for the reply justo316, Hmm not sure the CPU needs an upgrade at the moment, especially when you consider I'm running games at 1440p. There's a real good article over at Anandtech explaining how much the CPU effects game performance- http://anandtech.com/show/6934/choosing-a-...ltigpu-at-1440p To summarize, anything from the iCore5 2xxx range and above is fine. Cheers.
  8. Hey all, I've been running this setup for a while now and was wondering if it is worth upgrading to a new graphics card/s? It plays most modern games well but I've noticed that age is starting to catch up, particularly when I run games with my 1440p monitor and high detail settings. Specs are- 2560x1440 Monitor Core i5 2320 OC'ed 8GB DDR3 1600 What would you recommend, if anything? Cheers.

    Diablo 3 difficulty

    Hey guys, Just completed the game with my Barbarian and got him up to level 32, but for some reason I cannot see the option to up the difficulty, all it has under the choose quest screen is normal?! Am I just being an idiot and miss something? Cheers.
  11. Hi All, After either an ADSL 2+ modem or a router that will allow me to connect one or two external hdd's for bit torrent downloading; Any recommendations? The Netgear DGND3700 looks pretty good but would like to see what you guys recommend. Cheers.

    Battlefield 3 Multiplayer issues

    Yep the game window comes up, I've let it run for 10+ mins and nothing happens, occasionally I can hear a helicopter or some random chat, but thats it. I've tried restarting the launch (you mean for the map?) and it does nothing. Not sure what else there is to try...

    Battlefield 3 Multiplayer issues

    Hi all, I'm having some issues joining in MP games; the game website informs we that I am 'Playing' but all I get is a black screen with a blinking blue square down the bottom right corner. Cant seem to find any help any on Google so thought someone hear might have had a similar issue and be able to provide help/advice. The SP works fine BTW. Cheers.

    To upgrade or not..?

    One thing I also noticed for the Intel Z68 chipets is a feature called 'Intel Smart Response' which from what I understand basically combines a large HDD with an SSD to give almost SSD like performance but with all the space of a normal HDD. Has anyone had any experience with this or comments?

    To upgrade or not..?

    Thanks for the advice Bowie. The genreal use of hte system seems to be fine as I'm running the OS off a SSD, but I've noticed some newer games seem to be a bit slow on anything above medium such as Crysis 2, Total War etc. If a vid card upgrade is the way to go, what is the best choice? Will anything newer be bottlenecked by my CPU, motherbopard, Ram set up?
