  1. Very true, I usually use benchmarks like 3DMark now to figure out where I am :) 

    As for the 660, I had my 770 in with the 8320 for about a month and that's the time I meant I couldn't max Tomb Raider. The 660 did the job for a while, but it couldn't max everything and that was what I wanted to do lol.

    What does have to be said for the FX CPU's though, they are amazing at multitasking. Like if you minimise a game and open a load of other programs they just don't slow down, the PC still runs perfectly. Whereas with my i7 if I minimise a game, even opening Chrome is a bit juddery and stuttery.

    F1 with your setup is just awesome though, I find it so hard to go back and play the Xbox version now lol, it's almost like it's insulting my eyes to play it on console!
  2. Do you go by Windows Experience score? I don't have that on Windows 8.1 :p
    Same with TressFX but strangely enough, tessellation isn't a problem for me but that could be down to the i7 I suppose.

    The SSD will deffo help with games, my Windows install only takes up about 20GB, programs about 10GB so I use some of the 90 spare for my most played games. Gotta say though, I had my FX 8320 OC'd to 4.2Ghz and couldn't max Tomb Raider even with the SSD. Put the i7 in and it maxed absolutely no problems.

    On-topic: I like tea, but for gaming it's always a cold glass of coke, preferably vanilla coke.
    Can't argue with Vanilla Coke.
    Lol, my actual brother is the only other person I know that likes it. Every other person I've mentioned it to has usually said they don't like it, or just made an "ewwwwww" noise  :(
  4. How do the 770's perform SLI'd bud? Are you using one purely for PhysX? I could probably stretch to getting another but I've not often read good things about SLI or CrossFire.

    And you'll love the SSD! Other than my i7, it was one of the biggest jumps in performance I had.
  5. Sounds good Lee, at least it's useful rather than worthless like kudos :)

    Another thing to add to my dislikes: 

    The font shows up well in the box where you write your post, but the font on posted messages seems to be too thin and a little hard to read against the white background.

    Same here, I just don't find interest in gaming anymore, got way too much crap on my head to deal with :( I often play temple run 2 or NFS Most Wanted on my Xperia :D
    I still find gaming fun, it's just I don't often find a game that keeps me hooked anymore. Thief is a good example, it was fun to start with, then about 3/4's in it just got repetitive and I haven't played since. Same for Bioshock Infinite and a few others.
  7. Probably around £500. I spent £498 on my Medion Akoya P6643 and it can run BF4 with a mix of medium and high settings.
    DayZ it runs with everything turned right down, but even my main PC has problems with that with how it is atm.
  8. Things I like about the new forums so far:

    No post count next to names
    Being able to change sig and pic straight away
    The new buttons at the bottom of a post (off topic, disagree, agree, etc)
    The Facebook style notifications
    Quoting system is much clearer
    Shades smiley
    Bookmarking threads
    The forum categories on the left at all times

    Things I don't like:

    Too many posts on one page, means a lot of scrolling
    Can't think of anything else

    You guys?
