    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...

    Tbh $800 for a 'beast' is pushing it. Here is an example build with the top i7 and a cooler and mobo that will let you get a good overclock on it. Only 16GB of RAM as I ran out of budget, you may...

    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...

    This thread made me do exactly that 2 weeks ago. Once I'd spent an evening modding and started playing I realised that a) it looks much better in images than it does in motion b) the gameplay is not...

    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.

    Fair point :) But I have yet to purchase a single Ubisoft game since they forced in UPlay. I suffered UPlay to play through the free copy of FarCry 3 I got with my GPU and it has put me off buying...

    NewEgg currently has an open box Direct CU II 290 up for $322. As long as you don't mind the open box bit thats a stonking deal for one of the better after-market coolers.

    That's how I feel. I would be much more inclined to buy and play Ubisoft games (or EA games for that matter) without having to put up with their self-serving crapware. As it is I might make an...

    You're best off just removing the heatsink, cleaning it (and the CPU) and reapplying the thermal paste. You should be able to do this without removing the CPU.

    Even better would be to just replace...

    I run my 27" Qnix Evo II (2560x1400, PLS) at 90hz. I'm not sure going all the way to 120hz would make much more difference unless you are a serious FPS player (plus you'd have to run 2 GPUs to get...

    Surely it just depends on how far away from the monitor you sit. I have a 27inch screen on a Humanscale M2 arm so I can freely move it forward/backwards/up/down. For action or FPS or driving games I...
