    Also check whether there's anything underneath on the motherboard that might get in the way at your red line end of the card. I have SATA connectors back there, it was a bit tight with my graphics...

    For depth of immersion in story and world, The Secret World is pretty much unsurpassed for me. Throw in some RP with a good community and even more so. And in terms of complexity of character build...

    If it was me I'd get a GTX 970 and run that in your current system another year or two, it'll be a massive difference. In comparison one of the i5//i7 Haswell's will probably get you a 20% boost in...

    I'm pretty sure the only two places you can buy D:OS are Steam and GOG (in UK/EU at least). So you're waiting for a sale price from one of those two I'm afraid.

    Nvidia GTX 760 would be my first choice but in UK they are more than Xercies wanted to spend: 170-180 for one of the better brands so 30-40 more than the 270X.
