I was in the same situation and under the same impression. I however have just switched to AMD and got the FX-8350, mobo- 990FXA-UD5 Gigabyte, 2x 4GB DDR3 at 2210 MHz, though my video card is a crappy Zotac GTX 560 Ti (dont like how it only has 1GB RAM).
I'm happy with my switch from my similar i7-3930k build. Very happy, though I would not suggest going with the CPU cooler AMD provides, its loud :P
I think its definitely on par with Intel just cheaper and requires a little more tweaking, though its very customize friendly for people who like to fine tune their settings I guess. Im still learning though. Will be investing in an AMD videocard when I have the money. I'll be moving to michigan soon though, so saving all my money for that.
I've been using an xbox 360 controller to fly, and its a bit buggy.. What do you use and whats would you recommend?
*gives you bukket with pond water* Take this, you will need along your journey.
So is this essentially an "expansion" card to increase the performance of your other video card (like the original PhysX cards), or if you are using your onboard video to increase its performance? Would like to see more ^_^
I am very interested to see how this actually works, if it really does what it claims to do (which would be fantastic). A HUGE thing for me is the jumping of edges on the screen as I turn, screen tearing etc. I feel like first person shooters are 5x more enjoyable with a truly fluid picture :)
Its about time! I've been waiting for a true 240Hz monitor for battlefield, as I am very sensitive to the refresh rate of most LCD monitors.
I've just found you through this Giveaway, which I had seen posted on Facebook! Though I haven't had the time to delve into the forums and read through most of your articles, its apparent that I've found a solid community for reliable information and feedback on relevant hardware news. Though I am currently in the process of moving across the country, and have been quite busy. I have not had much time lately for even the forums I used to visit regularly, and doubt I will be able to contribute enough in the forums here, to be noticed. I wish I could though, as I've been talking to my girlfriend about getting a Tegra Note 7 for a while now. She's actually telling me to go buy one (probably tired of hearing about it haha), though I've had to save as much money for the move as I can.. Cursed responsibilities!
I would love to get my hands on one of these bad boys as my first tablet, and cant wait to see what I can do with the android platform. I develop software and enjoy modding, etc.. Especially with the power of the Tegra 4 processor, I know playing Battlefield 4 - Commander mode will be no problem haha. Being able to use Skype mobile, instead of being stationary. I can take my music and movies to friends houses and parties.. These are reasons I wanna get a Tegra!
