    I've had Drox for ages and keep seeing it there in my Steam Favourites as a reminder to someday put in more than the couple of hours I have already. I bloody loved Din's Curse by Soldak.

    Fair enough. I was just going from still seeing Amazon US deals on Savygamer so assumed it's still a thing, maybe he's not up to date on the change.

    The other way of course is pretending you're not in UK and buying from Amazon US or Origin. I'm not particularly an advocate for either of these, but judging by the frequency of such deals that Lewie...

    Edit to that: my mistake, the 8.74 is the Heroic edition, your bog standard. The other one is the Digital Deluxe and dunno is that is worth it or not....

    For what it's worth (1.26)...promo site says 75% off your Arenanet store price, which for UK would mean 8.74 for standard edition and 12.49 for Heroic.

    Very thorough review of that AOC monitor here, if it helps. Elsewhere on that site there's a good technical articles on monitor responsiveness including G-Sync that's worth a read to know what your...

    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...

    I bought one the Samsung S24D390HL back in May pretty much on the strength of that same review and forum advice on pcmonitors.info (I forget the thread but I left some feedback in the forum there too...

    Get a ruler and measure how much clearance you have beyond the end of your 560Ti, down the length of the card. Compare with spec dimensions of the new card on the manufacturer's website. Width and...

    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 have the R3 version of that Fractal case from about 5 years ago and really like it, it's a quality bit of kit. The only issue I've found in subsequent upgrades is that video cards have gotten...

    I haven't done it but AFAIK it's all the same and should work fine whether you're on Steam or not. The 'Join Game' lobby on my Steam version has a direct connection button - one player hosts the game...

    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.

    Couldn't agree more. I haven't enjoyed an episode of Doctor Who so much in a long time. I was drifted in and out of the show in the Matt Smith years but with Capaldi it's a must-watch again. Glad too...

    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.
