    intel's are pretty powerful as my last one was it was just getting a bit old and the liquid cooling was due for a top up so decided to make the switch. enjoying the new system though just need one of those Super Speed Drives. (I know it stands for Solid State but that's my nickname for them.)

    not familiar with Radeon cards really  but based on what I've read it's a 1 gb  memory for playing modern games you need at least 2 ideally 3  if you want to run games at reasonable settings anyway. As I said I don't know Radeon cards well but if you want to keep it low cost then whatever the equivalent of Nvidia's GTX660 could be a good card given that is a 2gb card I've heard good things about the hd 7970 which is 3gb but it's also £300 so it depends on your budget. I think the AMD 6000 series CPU's aer hexacores (6 cores) so processor wise you're  good having said that to match the PS4/XB1 levels you would be better served with an 8 core if you're going with AMD anyway but that's just what I think but it probably won't be necessary. He doesn't need an 8-core bud. His FX 6300 already smokes the APU that either of the new consoles use by a fairly large margin. The on'es in PS4/XB1 are more or less high spec laptop parts. And having said that, there's rumours that they're only running around 1.6Ghz compared to the 3.5Ghz stock speed of the FX 6300, which can be overclocked to at least 4.2/4.4Ghz. So no matter how it's cut, Skiddy's CPU is much better than either of the consoles. And hell, my CPU is only a quad core but it utterly destroys a large majority of CPU's out there. So it doesn't matter if his is 6, it's still better than the 8 in the consoles. yeah I thought so too I just wasn't 100% sure was all. That was the only reason why I brought it up as I'm used to intel CPU's not AMD's so haven't had much experience with them as my new system is the first one I've had with an AMD CPU

    yeah judging by your spcs those are the areas I'd focus on

    What Team Did You Start With in F1 2013?

    Toro Rosso on my last career which I've finished now I decided to retire a season early as I wasn't getting anywhere e so am back on 2012 racing the Marussia got 4th place in my last race in Bahrain but so far those 12 points are the only ones I've scored

    The PC Thread

    Completely agree! When I got my laptop about 2 months ago, the first thing I did was buy a 1TB hybrid SSHD (and another 4GB of RAM) for it. It actually boots faster than my main rig with that drive :) well mines for my desktop machine I'm leaving my laptop as it is as I don't really use it that much I tend to only use it if my big rig is down and or doing maintenance on it. As I tend to use it as my backup machine plus it's not that powerful

    The PC Thread

    yeah I can imagine I've got pretty solid graphics cards and processors and it's being held up by a hard drive that takes 3 minutes to boot up most days I've already found and sourced the one I want that's compatible with my new system it's just having the money to get it that's the problem right now but I'm owed some money which I expect to be given soon so once I have that money I'll be ordering it. I would have bought one when I got my computer but it just raised the price of the machine too high so had to make do with  conventional drives for now but I need conventional drives to cover the file storage space I needed.

    nice amount of ram might want to add a bit more there soon though given most games need about 8gb ram. your CPU's got a reasonable speed with the newer games consoles though you may want to consider a graphics card upgrade. Just an observation

    yeah I think it is too luckily I get BT sport for free as I get my internet from them

    The last game you completed?

    glad I don't have that game then It's a really good game bud, I could happily recommend it to any South Park fan, it's just that one character completely ruins the game and makes it horrible to play when he does his thing. oh right but I'm not erally a South park fan so I don't rally see mys4erlf getting it the only TV shows I've seen with games for them that I like are Star Trek and CSI

    F1's V6 Engine Sound

    neither do I as long as the commentary is good and theres plenty of overtakes and stuff like before I'd still consider it a good show regardless of the engine sound I think it's just a case of getting used to it like the weird noses that were brought in. I though they looked weird at first but they don't bother me now

    Negative. Thought he would be on here by now. He's back but he's just hiding

    The Game Thread!

    neither have I but then that's mostly down to watching some of my DVD's lately I tend to focus on one thing at a time till I finish recently got Battlefield 4 and Crysis 1 and 3 though I'd already got Crysis 2 so don't need to worry about that one Looking forward to playing them. But then I'm looking to install an SSD into my new PC first before I get stuck in as I was going to reprogram Windows and some games onto the SSD anyway

    TV/Movie discussion

    don't really watch that much TV these days aside from sport most of the series I like or have liked aren't on TV any moer but if I dofancy watching them I normally put on a DVD of them assuming I'm in a mood for seeing it again recently finished watching Star Trek DS9 in fact

    F1's V6 Engine Sound

    apparently the 8th gear will only come in force when they race on the very high speed tracks like Canada and Monza or whatever at least that's what Sky have been saying but like you I haven't seen i9t yet either I think I saw Alonso hitting 8th in practice earlier in Bahrain so we may see it this weekend

    F1's V6 Engine Sound

    It's good but then I've never really watched F1 for the noise more for the spectacle really
  23. that's the classic hockenheim all right I loved charging down those long forrested straightson the old Geoff Crammond games and I still love racing it on F1 challenge as well. would love to race it on one of these HD games
