I bought a Zotac Geforce GT 520 graphics card. It's was around €60 altogether including delivery. It was worth it cause I can play a lot more games on my pc now Smile

I've also ordered a new processor and Fallout 3 GOTY on pc.

What kind of processor? I've been looking around for a new AMD one but my mobo isn't very compatible with most powerful CPUs...

AMD and (formerly) ATI own Intel and nVidia in my book. Not only are they cheaper, but they perform just as well, if not better. Personally, I think AMD processors smoke Intel cpu's any day, and (formerly) ATI graphics cards can usually at least match pace with nVidia cards. 'cept they're like half the price. Thumbs Up

Yeah. What AMD need now is a 6 core CPU heh. They don't have one to my knowledge but I don't research these things often so I can't say for sure.

Currently using a Radeon HD5670 gfx card. It's far better than I was expecting for £80.

Yeah they do have a 6 core Phenom II already. But that's just overkill. I have a quad core Phenom in this computer and it's awesome, but I can't see utilizing any more than four cores. I'd probably get by fine with just dual core, but it's nice having the extra cores so programs don't skip a beat when you're multitasking like a mofo (running jk2 and possibly another game at the same time, checking the forums, uploading a new server binary, downloading updates, editing the mod...)

Actually, technically speaking, that list right there would benefit from a 6 core processor... great, just great, Loki, NOW I have to upgrade. Thanks a lot.


As far as (formerly) ATI's cards go, in general, the xx70 series cards are equal to nVidias cards as far as performance goes, for much much less money. The xx50 cards are like 90 percent of the performance for 50 percent of the cost (my personal favorite), and they have xx90 cards I think now too which get back to ATI's roots which was kicking the mother loving crap out of nVidia cards and still being pretty damn cheap.


Plus a thousand points to Loki for being an AMD lover.

Yea I was doing some research on different cards and I read anything over HD5570 owns. I just decided to stick with nVidia cause that's what I'm used to. The GT 520 isn't bad considering it was like around €45 for it. I've tried out Crysis and graphics are amazing. Have a look at this screenie:

Bought Crysis 2 on Xbox 360 for €3 lol. I traded in 3 older games at gamestop so that's all it cost. Sweet deal

Epic game was worth it.

I really liked that game! I hope there's a sequel. Just bought Burst Apart on vinyl (I know, compact disks are sooo mainstream). You want to get this. Absolutely fantastic album.

Got Mirror's Edge for my iPad while EA was having their giant holiday sale. It was a whopping 99 cents and is a pretty decent running game.

Just got the 3DS and Ocarina of Time 3d. 3D is really good but a bit too subtle at times, but it makes Ocarina of Time so amazing that I enjoyed the Water Temple.

The last thing I bought was the deluxe edition of Trivium's new album In Waves for €12. Came with 5 bonus songs and a bonus dvd. Worth it.

And I pre-ordered Battlefield 3 Limited Edition & Modern Warfare 3 for ps3 on Gamestop's site. Total was around €97 including delivery Smile

Well since every1 in KS are on ps3, not much point getting them on 360. You, master & I are like the only ones that play on 360 (Well master hardly ever goes on lol). Maybe when they drop price or sumthing.
