    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...

    And as to AAA games: The production values may be higher and the experience polished but new ideas and suprises are thin on the ground. I simply don't find the majority of them terribly interesting...

    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...

    The fundamental issue is that the democratisation of game development on mobile and PC has lead to a situation where there is a massive overabundance of games. The level of competition in the...

    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.

    But then if I did get some sort of infection I would...

    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:

    1 - Get an SSD. Look at the Crucial...

    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...

    Obviously I can't promise anything but I see no reason why not. The only caveat would be that running a big overclock (with extra voltage) can shorten the lifetime of components. A moderate overclock...

    It seems to be quite CPU dependant for some reason.

    Started playing it and I've had fun so far. It's pretty bonkers and mercifully lacking in long cut-scenes (I've just finished playing Max Payne...

    This gives me a good excuse to get going on it, otherwise it'll probably languish in my unplayed list.

    Having used a remote with cursor functions I regard it as a pretty useless function. Navigating a single menu takes longer than just picking up the keyboard. But then I don't ever leave the front-end...

    16GB of RAM won't make any difference in games at all.

    The biggest jump would be a GPU upgrade so I would suggest getting either a good AMD 290 (like the Sapphire Tri-X) or a 780 if you want...

    Cargo Commander has a main theme that I later found out is either the same or very similar to 'Homesick' by the Kings of Convienience. A very nice song.
