To commemmorate getting my first credit card (with a $500 limit, oh boy oh boy) I decided to order some new PC parts I have been desparately wanting. Today, I recieved: EVGA GeForce GTX560Ti Superclocked - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130610 Corsair H50 - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835181010 They do not disappoint. This is moving up from a BFG Tech GeForce 8800GT Overclocked (factory) and the stock cooler for my AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition. Stock cooler wasn't bad, but... yeah. As far as the card goes, I recently modded Morrowind to hell and back. More texture, model, icon, and mesh replacements than you care to imagine. Made the game go from looking like the 2003 game it was to something out of 2009 or 2010. It's fucking amazing. You wouldn't even be able to tell it's the same game. Well, since I topped it off with activating Distant Lands with Morrowind Graphics Extender, my FPS ate shit. My 8800GT was maxing at 9FPS if I was lucky. Without changing a setting, the GTX560Ti took it up to 24+. I know, still not great, but considering everything I've done to this game... Better things to compare against - Metro 2033. On the 8800, I had to play on Low graphics settings (and turn some settings even lower) and disable PhysX to get a playable framerate. The 560, however... full Ultra + PhysX... without a single stutter. Downloading Just Cause 2 again because I had an even worse time with that. The Corsair cooler has made my rig so much quieter. Under low load, the fan on the 560 is surprisingly quiet. The intake fan that the Corsair came with is very quiet, and the cooler itself makes a very very faint hum. Turned my top exhaust fan to low and one of my hard drive intakes to low (the other is on medium). So, my build now: MSI 790FX-GD70 motherboard AMD Phenom II X4 Deneb Black Edition @3.6ghz (up from 3.2) 3x2gb DDR3 RAM by Mushkin Enhanced (don't remember the timings or latency off hand, but it's not bad) EVGA GeForce GTX560Ti Superclocked Corsair H50 Cooler RocketFish modular gaming PSU @650w (blue LED fan ) Optiarc DVD-ROM drive, LG/Lite-ON DVD+/-RW/RAM drive 2x Seagate Barracuda 1TB @RAID1 1x WD Caviar 1TB (split in two for Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Windows 8 Dev-Preview which I don't even use anymore) 1x Seagate Barracuda 500GB (I don't even store anything on this...) Vizio 26" LCD TV (primary, HDMI), Hannspree 22" LCD Monitor (secondary, DVI) Cyborg RAT9 mouse on a Cyborg GLIDE 7 pad Cyborg v7 Gaming Keyboard Random Cambridge Soundworks speakers Logitech G330 headset Wicked Audio "Reverb" headphones Trusty XBL Vision camera (for Skype). And, of course, hooked to the TV: Xbox (500Gb hdd with nDure), Xbox 360 (Xenon), Wii (4.3, postloader2 and CFG Loader, and NeoGamma for my GC backups), PS2 (FMCB), Sega Genesis, N64. Am I justified in never leaving my room? I jsut need a Bluray burner for my PC now and I will be DONE. Just Cause 2... same thing. Completely maxed, no problem. Now for GTA IV and I'll be convinced.
