Now honestly, the only things that is up to you is the GPU, SSD, HDD, OS, Optical Drive, Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, and Headphones. The following parts are based upon my opinion. Discussion of my changes of Joe's Area 51: GPU: GTX 980 SLI or R9 295x2 or R9 390x or Titan X While the recent 3.5 GB associated with the 970s and 980s have been quite annoying, I would suggest that waiting for future GPUs to come out (such as the 390x) would be wise. SSD: 512 GB or more HDD: Can add more HDDs for more space (why bother?!?) OS: Linux, Hackintosh, Windows 7 Home Premium Optical Drive: What's the point? Monitor: 4K monitor OR 1440p Keyboard: Corsair keyboards > Logitech. Shots fired. sorry joe Mouse: This is based on your gaming preferences. Whether it'd be FPS, MNO, or whatever. So why did I make this post? Well I wanted to make this list so that you can sorta copy Joe's setup.
  4. The Gaming keyboards by Corsair are actually nice. (besides that ugly tramp stamp logo) They are far better than the Mad CATZ keyboards (which in my opinion are horrendous keyboards) If you prefer the least noise, at least get Cherry MX Reds or Browns, although reds are mainly for gaming. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823816022&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

  8. I'm not sure if I want to switch to NSA Windows 8 or NSA 2.0 Windows 10. Sticking with windows 7 home preminum on my old computer until I have to install NSA Windows 8 on my new computer build.
  9. Would be good to upgrade CPU, as the game is very CPU heavy, then GPU and RAM can be kind of optional.
  10. discrimination! mesmers and thieves are da best
  11. Hyped up games end up not living to its original statement. End of discussion. Titanfall - Disappointment Watch Dogs - Disappointment and now, Destiny - Disappointment Hopefully Smash Bros will live up to its statement and be GOTY. the illumnati is a part of this, don't tell anyone i said this
  12. Banned because I haven't used my banhammer in a long time.
  13. Ouch, blackouts. Get a replacement for your videocard, GeForce 9500 GT isn't actually worth it.
  14. Hello, this mini guide is to help with PS2 players play smoothly and optimize their settings correctly. 1: Tweaking Before we jump into actual game settings, there is one thing that causes your performance to blunder, which is found in the following: C:/ to program files (X86) to steam to steamapps to common to Planetside 2 and then scroll down until you find the file named UserOptions. Open it up and again scroll down until you find the section that says terrian. Set the line where it says RenderFlora to off. This will help quite a bit, as your computer's CPU runs it along with other minor things, so turning RenderFlora off allows your CPU to have a bit more power to run the game. 2: Game Settings Sigh, here we go. This long section. Surprisngky, the game is very cpu heavy, a little on your gpu. So to convert some power from CPU to GPU, you have to increase your graphics. Yeah I know, a big surprise, but however this method increased my performance by a lot. To see FPS, do alt+F. This wikl tell you how much fps your CPU and GPU has. You should set everything to high except for flora and shadow quality, those are to be set to off or low. This way, the game still look amazing while having good performance. Now, here is the big performsnce boost: Adjust your render quality to 80 or 90%, it may look a tiny bit blurry but it performs so well. Also, changing your FOV to 60 or 70 will help drastically as well, due to the matter of fact your FOV is the amount of world you can see. You should also lower resolution to your preferences, as lower resolutions load fewer pixels than higher resolutions. The render distance also goes for render quality, as render distance is for how distant you can see objects, ONLY. However, if you dont care about graphics and want the most fastest game ever, turn all graphic settings to low or even off if you can, as well adjust render quality, render distance, FOV, and resolution. So I hope you enjoy my somewhat short guide to enhance your experience and have fun.
  15. woah, massive debt D: but good job on making this city
