[QUOTE="Kyaw, post: 5339703]Nah, 460 should be enough for up to about 4xAA and everything on max.
Especially since you play older games. SLI is a waste if you arent gonna have a massive resolution.
You could overclock if you want.[/QUOTE]

Well I'm used to no AA so 2x will do me, jaggies have never bothered me though tbh. Screen tearing does though! I researched monitors for ageeeeeeeeeeeees but that one got a lot of + revews and I did not want to spend £400 on a Dell superwotsit.
What games are people playing aside from L4D?

I play some BC2 from time to time and also Minecraft.

Use D3DOverider to enable triple buffering to eliminate screen tearing without the performance loss of Vsync.
You just need to download Rivatuner and D3Doverider should be included in the download.

I'm waiting for Shogun: Total War 2 to come out.

Ok will do. I understand my card comes with software called MSI Afterburner but I think thats for OC'ing. I have never played a Total War game even though PC Gamer always rave about them, not sure why.

Yeah you can use Afterburner for overclocking, but it does a few more nifty things. You can control the fan speed on it and set a temperature curve, so it will kick in harder at certain temperatures. That and monitor the temperature of it.

And my bad guys, I totally forgot about this thread. I'll try to monitor it more often and join you guys.

L4D2, TF2, CS:S, tempted to buy Civ5 but I'm not sure. Not played any Civ games before and it looks pretty cool. I play Starcraft 2 occasionally from time to time, but no one from PSU plays it..

AC2 came out for Mac too :lol:. I got that for christmas in 2009. If I can find myself a decent copy of Windows 7, I'm very tempted to dual boot.

I don't mind shooter on PC but I'm not very good. Civ is a huge timesink I mean massive.
Can't wait to load up Baldurs Gate II and Deus Ex again.

Edit: Civ IV had the most beautiful intro I'd ever seen, mainly due to the music.

I wont bother buying Civ5 if it's that much of a time sink in that case. I just don't have the time :(.

Way too difficult. I've done The Parish but godamn, thats like impossible.

Also it wasn't a campaign mode, it was the Mutation. Flu Season. It's a nonstop boomer/spitter spawn.

I found that out very quickly! The range they have on them is insane. Anyone would think their spit is projectiled by a 50 cal bullet!
As annoying as that part was i did find it very funny. Only just got revived and then we we're pretty much dead again

Recently these are what I've been playing:

Doom 3 Open Coop with a friend
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor with a friend
BC2/BC2 Vietnam with a friend or two or 3 or 4 :lol:



Killing Floor
L4D2
DoD Source
Mass Effect 2 (just beat it, holy hell that game is amazing)
C&C 3 and 4
Red Alert 2 (still think this is the best RTS ever)

Some others, can't think of them right now.
