Re: New Build

Hey, Build went pretty well, seemed a lot easier putting it together than the last time I build a PC. That might have just having easy access to youtube videos for anything I was a bit unsure about. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zOYdNEHDQo if you are interested) There was 3 hours of blind panic w...

Re: New Build

Thanks for all the help Major_A =D>

Think I'll go for Window 7 Pro
Changed to the Fractal Design r4 case
Changed over to 780 GTX

Memory I've switch to Ripjaws based on tom's hardware review.
I'm going for a 8x2 kit not a 4x2 kit :)

Re: New Build

Cheers. Been going through all the components today I'm thinking of http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=18281754 It's about ~$2300 in total. So looks like my original $2400 budget should be good (£1500) Not decided on R9 290 or GTX 770/780 yet. I would go for the 2...

Re: New Build

Hey, My current plan is to scrap the lot maybe passing on the old machine to a family member. It will mainly be used for games (and everyday stuff) At the moment I'd say I would probably be gaming at 1920x1080. 2440x1440 is tempting though... depends on how much more that would cost. Not decided on ...

Not been keeping up with the last tech recently so I am a bit out of the loop on what's best versus cost.

Re: Would the following setup work?

Cheers.

I'll probably just stick with using the kingston memory than. Not sure the issues I could have trying to get both working together are worth it for the 2 extra gb. 4GB should be enough for me at the moment.

Re: If interested in small scale development...

No we didn't write the engine ourselves.. we used the instinct engine

As for how big.. honestly I am not 100% as we will cut out all the crap that we dont actually use no doubt but it will probably be at least several hundred MBs
