  1. Well I have 2 options for screens 1440x900 and 1080. I'm not fussed as long as It looks good and plays smooth.
  2. $130-150 for a 7770 , videos on you tube show BF3 on high getting 45+ FPS so it would seem like good value?
  3. Looking for some help on a value for money system. This system is just for Gaming, Internet & Downloading. From what i have read the Intel smash AMD but for gaming and value for money purpose they will more then do the job? I am on a budget - recently married and saving for a house. I need help selecting a video card - I don't expect to be playing BF3 on Ultra but i would like high, I have seen youtube videos on 550Ti's playing on high with no problems and they are only $118 or do i look for somthing in the new gen AMD card's?

    PC for gaming?

    I have long been a console for a long time now and for a while been toying with the idea of getting into pc gaming. With the likes of BF3, Skyrim and Star Wars on the way i get more keen and keen on the idea. I have been playing with builds for around $1200 and getting around 2500k/GTX 570 - 2500k/6970 - AMD 975/GTX580 Question is - 1. Will a computer build today last me at least 2 year before upgrade? 2. Is there a healthy australian population in servers? especially in FPers

    What path to take?

    Hi all - I have a small problem and would like some advie. I have been thinking about getting back into gaming with the like of BF3 and MW3 coming out. I sold my PC and PS3 long ago so all i ahve is a MAC laptop. Im not sure if i should buy a console or pc. I have around $2000 in savings but i do not want to by both. Console for Couch and Comunity - Always found games - Also is there a new XBOX/PS4 soon or no? But pc for the Games\Mods\Better DX11 I'm just worried if i build a pc and get BF3 and MW3 what it will lack the comunity that consoles have? or am i right off the mark? Just keep reading how Black-Ops was crapola on pc with no dedicated server ect.....
  10. Hi guys, I am having a little trouble understanding CF/SLI. I have a 1080P screen - some people tell me to go CF/SLI and some people tell me stay single. My question is for 1080p would it matter? Single V CF\SLI at 1080P if i cranked all graphics and the AA\AF ect will CF\SLI benefit me over a single? or is it just for multi monitors? Ie; GTX 580 3GB v CF 6950, 560Ti SLI/570 SLI?? cheers, 47
  11. I'm looking all all kinds of motherboards for a gaming pc and they range from under 100$ to $400. For gaming is it important do get an expensive one ? Or are there just some things I should be looking for? I like Asus and gigabyte, are msi any good?

    GFX Help!

    Instead of 2 cards just get 1 gtx590? Or 6990? They are expensive but would it future proof?
  15. Hi All, I am looking to be building a new computer in early October to be my new gaming machine for BF3, D3, TOR. I am stuck on what GFX card to get GTX580 - GTX590 - ATI6970 - ATI6990 - SLI - CF? Are there going to be any new cards released before Oct? I came across this link http://gamegpu.ru/Action-/-FPS-/-TPS/Battl...a-test-GPU.html and its a benchmark of the Alpha of BF3 and seems some cheaper cards do alright???? I dont mind spending the money but i also dont want overkill if i dont need it. I am wanting to run all these games on full and smooth on 21.5 1080p. Any input would be awesome!
