Yeah I've not really stretched my GPU too far, and I can still overclock it, as well as my CPU Smile GTA drops below 20FPS sometimes and I can notice it, but this is only with complete max settings.

I'm not sure if it actually drops that low because I can't see the FPS. The benchmark on full settings (i.e. 16x AA etc) pulls in 55FPS. I want to try out Crysis, I'll go download it now Very Happy

I would be playing Fallout 3. But, BethSoft isn't supporting it in Windows 7. I tried to return the game to WalMart. But, it was opened and they would only exchange for the same thing. I posted a thread on BethSoft's Fallout 3 forum and have had no luck with any fixes. I have exchanged numerous messages with tech support at BethSoft and they ended up telling me that they don't support Windows 7 and it is up to me to get it to work. I have been biding my time...I am thinking about a raid or something. They sold me a product that won't work. Do I sound mad? LOL I want to play the stinking game.

Yeah, the game is less than 3 years old. The "System Requirements" list Windows XP and Vista along with all the hardware. Then directly under that it says, "Increased performance will be noticed on more powerful systems." That is a clear implication that newer hardware AND software OS will not only work but work better. I have also sent an e-mail to ZeniMax Media INC, BethSoft's parent company, and haven't received a response.

I told BethSoft and ZeniMax that I was going to forward all the e-mails to Clark Howard here in GA and to MaximumPC. I think I may have pissed them off Laughing

I wanted my money back or the game to work. Now, I am either just gonna let it go, or employ some chan folk to annoy the bejesus out of them. What do y'all think I should do?

Really tempted to purchase Crysis instead of downloading it illegally. It's only £9.99 but I don't want my bank balance to drop below £400 Very Happy I recently spent over £600 on buying new components, oops.

I'm in pretty bad need of upgrading my pc, but I'm still having fun with games that are a little older. I don't care much for how shiny graphics are, so I usually set things to low settings to get that little extra speed on games that my graphics card shouldn't be able to run. I've been juggling Minecraft, DoW II, Bad Company 2, Magicka, raged at a private WoW server for sucking so much ass, and Sacred I + II.

I just started BFBC2 (any advice?), I'm working through the penumbra series and HL2 series, and I just finished my first Borderlands playthrough.

I'm not playing a lot and there's a lot that I wish I could play.

About a month ago, I finished Assassins Creed 2. That was pretty cool. Right now, at this moment, this very moment, I'm playing Cities XL 2011. I love city simulators.

I want to trade in my Skate games for Skate 3 for the 360. Then I want to get a rockin' report card and get Bulletstorm.

Is anyone else really excited for ESV: Skyrim? What about Diablo III? If Diablo III does get released this year, then it will be my game of 2011, as will Skyrim. So many good games coming out this year, it's not even funny.

If I were to reactivate my WoW account I'd have 5 level 80s on there Neutral not even in shit gear either, my Shaman was fully Ulduar geared (Back when Ulduar was the #1 raid) and my Rogue had awesome PvP gear. That game totally used up my life though, and I'm glad I'm off the WoWCrack now Very Happy Plus, it's gone WAY too casual for my liking Sad

I never liked Sims 3, mostly because I could never get my lighting to work. If I have massive windows, I should get a massive amount of light, right?

I don't. Instead, I get pockets of light that only gradually light the room. Sims 2 is much better at lighting and I like the gameplay a lot more.

I sometimes wonder if I'm weird because issues like lighting in a video game don't bother me >.>

I mean, it's not that I care about lighting, but in a game like The Sims, it's a crucial element in the house building aspect of the game. A lack of natural lighting elements is frustrating, especially when the lighting elements don't even do their job, so it kind of defeats the purpose for building in the first place.

It's just frustrating and I'd rather not play it. The Sims 2 is much better, by far. EA took the game in a direction I did not want it to go, like they do to almost every game I like. The Sims 3 is now just a money-maker for them, it's like they don't even give a shit anymore. They always jip you of content in the base game and make you pay for it with constant expansions and DLC. The only thing the expansions add is objects and a new gameplay component. It hardly feels like an expansion, it just feels like something I just shelled out $20 bucks to get.

And that's why I hate EA. The only thing I've ever liked from them is the Skate series. That's a good series and Skate 3 is the best one yet.

Tested out Crysis 2 before, maxed out Very Happy It's a beast. It's kind of strange going from COD:BO to Crysis 2 though in multiplayer. Crysis 2 seems kind of Gears of War like.
