Ahhh, overall gaming. NOT PC gaming... Was gonna say!

I suppose the PCMR has a lot to thank our console cousins for really.Reply

Still, the PC gaming hardware market is worth six times the value of the insignificant console market ;)

Couldn't care less! Only thing I care about for new BF is EA scrapping their crappy, restrictive Rental Server Program.

I own each and every BF from 1942 up to BF4, with thousands of hours logged in each, but I skipped BF1 (despite enjoying the beta) when EA banished 3rd party servers and basically ruined clans/custom server control.

Okay, now I really need to play 1 & 2. Sadly didn't encounter the series until Bioshock Infinite, which is an excellent game.Reply

Oh cool, you're in for a treat! It's been surpassed, but BioShock 1 is still one of the best shooters ever.

AMD’s 7nm Vega isn’t likely to ever make it into gaming graphics cardsAMD’s 7nm Vega isn’t likely to ever make it into gaming graphics cards

" a very expensive card, as were both the RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 cards when they launched.."

Then became even more expensive pretty much immediately! Sure, prices and availability are starting to improve, but they are still way too costly.

Can't wait to see what happens with the next-gen GeForce cards too - GTX 2080? GTX 1180? 1111GTX1?

I respect Cliffy B as I was schooled in Online FPS from UT99, 2k3, 2k4... But he does seem to losing his way. I know this isn't actually just his game, but his studio are making it with his blessing.

How about just concentrating on making the newest UT successful?

For the love of PC gaming (and my Freesync display) can AMD please release a competitive GPU soon?!

Go on, how much? 2 grand a stick?Reply
Dave James Avatar

Well, the 4,300MHz kits were around $350, so I'd guess the 4,700MHz kits would be around $500 for the pair. So, a 5GHz kit, a snip at $800... per stick ;)

Ultimate Chicken Horse review snippet How funny is Ultimate Chicken Horse?
Had to rate this game as it's an excellent multi-player for the sofa but you really need 4 players to get the most fun out of it. It was rated 2 ½ stars here before I gave it my 4 ½ which was way too low. Grab it in a Steam sale and play with friends or family. ;)
