    Post your setup!

    Only change I've made is I now have a nice Thermaltake case instead of a crappy tiny case that I hacked up to fit my big Graphics Card. Also have some more fans, still runs quiet

    Last Game You Played

    The Witcher 2. I'm long overdue in getting this game, but damn is it awesome.

    Yeah, although people are right when they say this thing runs hot. What I've noticed is that either MSI and/or AMD have ramped up the voltage a bit too high. I've undervolted it and I can still manage a core overclock of 1070MHz (stock is 1000MHz and Factory OC is 1040MHz). Before, I used to hit about 74C max on load with an idle temp of about 50C, now I hit a max of around 60-65C and an Idle Temp of 40C with a custom fan profile in MSI Afterburner (hated how they made the fans turn off, it's stupid).

    Is it Taco Tuesday already? Good to see another video being pumped out. Even with the time it took to come out, it really did get me excited and as always, did not disappoint. It seems like doing a series like this has a different flow to it than HL1/Half-Life: Source. I really wonder how the Ravenholm parts of the series are going to be like. The fast zombies definitely seem like they're on drugs, that's for sure.

    Just upgraded Motherboard and CPU. I now have an i5 3570 that I found used for $50 NZD The motherboard I'm using at the moment isn't that great, cost $30. At least it's a placeholder till my other one gets here. The SATA ports are put in a stupid spot so that all my cables get squashed by my GTX 760. I'm also using a stock cooler that doesn't have a copper slug which has been installed with cable ties because I'm missing some of the push pins and one doesn't lock down. Well, if it works it works. Temperatures are fine. My Xeon X5450 with an LGA 771 to 775 mod worked well for what I needed it for, it's basically an Intel Core 2 Quad QX9650 that I got 2 years ago for the same price I got the 3570 for now. I would've used the beefy 130W TDP cooler from that (If I had an LGA 1155 bracket), but that's overkill and I'm going to be putting that motherboard and CPU in my girlfriends computer that I'm building for her. At least till I can find another LGA 1155 CPU like I did for cheap (She won't mind if her SATA Cables are squashed). The best thing I'd have to say is that I just got another motherboard shipping my way which has more SATA ports (need more than 4) and everything is spaced out really well. I can certainly say that having PCI-Express 3.0 over 1.1 feels like a breath of fresh air, not handicapping my GTX 760.

    Freeman's Mind 2 - Poll about graphics quality

    I'd like for everything to be completely authentic with the Half-Life 2: Update mod. It makes a whole lot more sense since Ross dedicated some of his time towards it.

    I am so late for replying... Yeah. While you are correct. It still runs every game I throw at it (Seriously, even ARMA 3). The only problem I faced was that the whole system is confined to 8GB of RAM Max on DDR3 since it's Hybrid DDR2/DDR3 on the motherboard (not together that is, that would be impossible). The other thing is that it doesn't support single sided DDR3 RAM. I haven't got any newer titles, but I would have to upgrade if I were to get Dishonored 2

    What did you do with the real BTGBullseye Anyway... My Asus R9 270 died (Don't go with a GPU that has Elpida VRAM and no direct cooling on the VRAM). On top of that my motherboard started playing up so I thought I'd rebuild my system. http://www.steamcommunity.com/id/shredderman962 I would like to up the RAM by 4GB (Maximum of 8GB DDR3 @1333MHz). The point of the rebuild was to make something cheap and make it last before I do a full upgrade. You maybe thinking this system won't be able to handle much, but you'd be surprised. With games like ARMA 3 I only need to turn down the resolution because of the limitation of the 1GB of VRAM in my current cheap GPU. You can't go wrong with a system rebuild that only costs $107 USD (used parts are even more expensive here).

    Games you got recently

    I've been playing the Overwatch Open Beta. So I haven't bought it yet, but the game is amazing. It's like someone got TF2, the class style from LoL or Dota and then slapped them into one. Not really how you would imagine it though. But in that play style I guess.. Other than that I've been playing Jalopy. It's quite frustrating at the moment.
