    Loved it personally. In many ways it's more like Deus Ex than Thief and looking back on it while I enjoyed Dues Ex: HR at the time Dishonored was much better game. And damned pretty too.

    That InWin certainly looks unique but by all accounts the airflow is pretty bad. I have a Fractal Define Mini and it is a very nice case, though I'm a bit bored of the black monolith style now (don't...

    That quote about movies isn't even correct. Watch a slow camera pan in a 24fps and you will see unpleasant stutter.

    Are games playable at 30 FPS? Mostly, yes. Are they better at 60 FPS? Always...

    A GPU upgrade will make a massive difference. Give us a budget a we can make a suggestion.

    And what make is that 400W PSU? If it's a generic/no-name brand you'll want to consider upgrading that...

    Instead of a coin collector would it be possible to have an NFC payment thing in it? People could then pay by waving their iphone or bank card at it. Removing the mechanical aspect (the coin thingy)...

    I've played computer games my whole life and am sitting at a desk fixing bugs in a game right now and I wouldn't call myself a 'gamer' because to me that term has negative connotations. I don't want...

    Did you read my post? That is exactly what I'm proposing. If you want particular types of games to continue to be made then you should support that by buying them at above rock-bottom prices. Why...

    Of course, but at the end of the day money talks and if you want the games you like to continue being made then you should be prepared to support that. I want more strategy and TBS games made so I...

    Well, you have to be a bit careful with regular OS backups since if you don't notice an infection right away you could end up with a corrupted backup. But I keep an image of my system after a clean...

    I say 'none' personally, but I guess it depends on your needs. I just do periodic scans and have turned up nothing in the last 5 years. Nada.

    Your current PC is actually still pretty decent, the CPU and RAM are still good, but there are 3 things you could do that would make a world of difference:

    You could always drill out the rivets and remove the lower cage anyway, it's very easy. Then mount the HDD and SSD one of the 5.25 inch bays. Or buy a new case :)

    The only problem you are going to have is with large CPU coolers (which you don't need) and GPUs. You just have to loko up the length of the cards and check it against your case. Most modern cases...

    The 280X is 2-3 times more powerful than a 7750, plus 1 GB isn't much for VRAM these days. You could save yourself a bit of cash and get a 280 instead, it's not far off it in performance.

    This is a build at the top of your budget. I assume your current optical drive will work and that you have a Windows 7/8.1 license. The 280X (aka 7970) was the top AMD card until the end of last year...
