You will not post extremely explicit text or images such as pornography or gore. All content should be safe-for-work. Borderline posts should be hidden with spoiler tags to maintain a SFW (safe-for-work) environment. Please do not post links or images from Imgur. Imgur blocked the Dojo from hotlinking their images with no warning or negotiation offers so any posted Imgur images or avatars will be broken or appear "white". You will not post off-topic discussion or derail threads. Memes, macros and other unrelated content should be hidden with spoiler tags.

You will not impersonate Dojo staff, Curse staff or NCSoft staff. You will not flood or spam threads. At the current level of Dojo activity, bumps will only be allowed once every three days.

You will not create threads with the intention of causing unrest (“baiting”). You will not discuss any private servers, cheating, account selling, real money trading (“RMT”), trust trading or related activities. This does not include mods or tools that do not break Dojo rules. False reports will result in a warning or ban. Please read the rules carefully before sending in reports. Backseat (“pocket”) moderation will be hidden to keep the forum clean. If you find a post or thread that you believe needs to be moderated, use the report function. You will not edit your post if it has been edited by a moderator for rule-breaking. You will obey moderator warnings. If you are privately messaged by a moderator for rule-breaking and you wish to contest it, you may do so in the private message but remember that moderator decisions are final. Complaints about Dojo rules, Dojo staff members or the Dojo itself on the forum will be hidden and further action may be taken against your account. If there are changes you wish to see, use the Site Feedback & Support board. Topics and posts may be edited or altered by Dojo staff members due to bad formatting. This can include things such as posts typed in capslock or posts that have content that needs to be hidden with spoiler tags. Moderators may delete or hide posts without warning if the post was not worth writing a warning for. If your post is hidden or deleted and you were not notified, it was done so because it broke a simple forum rule and required removal. Questions & Technical Support Misinformation will be hidden. Constant spreading of misinformation or lazy replies will result in a warning or ban (i.e. “search it yourself”). Blade & Soul Feedback You will not beg NCSoft staff, Curse staff, Dojo staff or Dojo members for gifts, keys, NC Coins, etc unless participating in a specific giveaway. Clan Discussion & Recruitment Forum rules #3, #4 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Clan Discussion & Recruitment board. Do not create new clan threads over and over to advertise the same clan. Request for an old thread to be locked if you need to create a new one.

You will not attempt to buy or sell premium membership. You will not participate in trust trades, such as selling services, trading cross-server, or selling items from the Hongmoon store. Guides You will not create any threads on the Guides board that could not be considered guides. Roleplay & Fan Fiction You will not roleplay in any board outside of the Roleplay & Fan Fiction board. Erotic roleplay (“ERP”) will not be tolerated and will result in a hidden post or deleted thread. Mods & Tools You will not post mods or tools that could be used to give you an advantage over other players (i.e. speedhacks). You will not post extremely explicit mods, such as nudity mods. You will not steal work created by another user. All work must be original unless you are given permission by the original creator of the work to post it on the Dojo. You will not submit mods that infringe on the copyrights of companies (i.e. Sanrio outfits, etc.). You will not submit mods that require users to bypass GameGuard, nor will you that teach users how to bypass GameGuard. Off-Topic Discussion Forum rules #3, #4, #8 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Off-Topic Discussion board. You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made. Please note, creating additional accounts (“sockpuppets”) to circumvent a Dojo ban will result in a longer ban of the original account and permanent bans of the additional accounts.

Can my computer run Blade & Soul?

1368 posts in this topic

A 7770 should get her up to medium settings but that CPU is still going to drag her down to very low frame rates in very crowded areas. It's good enough, but not ideal. A little overclocking should get it up to something acceptable but she'll have to install an after-market heat sink on the cpu to avoid overheating.

okay, is there a way for her to upgrade the CPU or is there no fixing that? (I'm computer technics illiterate)

What would she have to do in order to get at least medium settings for BnS and get a slightly higher frame rate in crowded areas?

She would have to get a discrete GPU. An actual video card.

Pre-built PC's from the store aren't meant to be upgraded like this. It depends on the motherboard, but it probably has limited features/compatibility.

Hello again people, my new PC parts are coming today so I thought I would check in how BnS would run on it. I imagine it should be ok but I feel my graphics may hold me back from running it at mid~mid/high.

Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU

MSI Z77A-GD65 Motherboard

Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 LP Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600MHz

XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB

The graphics card is old I think I bought it sometime last year in 2011, I may sell it and buy an upgrade if it is needed......thoughts?

it will run max on 1080p but you probly gonna get like 40ish fps and might drop below 30 in crowded area i'd suggest playing on medium for a better gameplay exprience or lower resolution anything below 1920x1080 will be fine

- I hope this build would be good http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zubv.

I have a couple suggestions to improve your build.

What advanced features are you planning to use with that deluxe motherboard? If you can't think of any besides gaming, then you may be wasting money on the deluxe version. Your gaming experience won't be compromised if you go with the vanilla P8Z77-V.

I have a better idea than 2133 memory. That speed won't do much for games, but you could always have more RAM. Why not switch to 16 GB of 1600 Corsair Vengeance RAM?

- Thank you for your suggestions, and Yeah I'm building a PC solely for gaming, but not gonna rush it, maybe advanced CPU's / GPU's will be out this year.

- I'm building a PC that would last for years with me, I'm not the kind of guy who would costume made a PC every 2/3 years.

I actualy got a note about youre casing, the HAF 932 Advanced.

It lacks dust filters like it's previous version, the HAF 932. :brick:

I actualy recomend the HAF-X, I use it too and has dustfilters on all the mesh panels.

Here some youtubes for reviews about them.

I'm, just mentioning this becus I have just to vacuumclean the outside of my casing, and just once a year the inside. :adore:

Casings without dust filters needs a cleanup on the inside, once every 3~6 months. Based on how easy it gathers dust. :amazed:

I give you credits for having taste :wave:

Is a 8 core amd processor worth upgrading? I got a 1045T and I don't know what to do to make a nice budget friendly upgrade.

- I've updated my components to this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zFwp

For gaming you do not need an i7

Unless you plan to take that i7 to 4.5GHz and beyond you don't need that cooler

The only reason to get that motherboard over something cheaper is the built in wifi

The ram is fine

The hard drive is trash, especially since you didn't opt to get an SSD. Everything will take forever to load.

Overpriced graphics card.

The case is fine

The power supply is substantially more than you'll ever need

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zH61

That's what I would highly recommend for around what your budget seems to be.

If you're one of those guys that dislikes AMD then I'd reccomend this card

- Thank you for taking some of your time to help me out with building a costume made PC, I really appreciate it.

- I'm not planning to OC my CPU I don't wanna damage it since I'm new to the OCing business.

- After Reconsiderations and googling, I've modified my list to this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zJxE

- The 660 ti I think is fair against the other later released GPU's.

- For RAM I think 8 GB would be enough for gaming, running applications and rendering videos; but gonna stick to the 16 GB.

If you aren't planning to OC then you can drop the cooler, the stock Intel one that comes with the CPU is enough.

I still think that 660ti is overpriced.This one however is priced at exactly where it should be as it competes with the similarly priced 7870 performance-wise. If you aren't going to OC your GPU either I think this one would be fantastic.

- For RAM I think 8 GB would be enough for gaming, running applications and rendering videos; but gonna stick to the 16 GB.

You should most definitely stick to 16gb for rendering video, also if rendering video is something you're going to do alot I'd say looking into AMD's 8350 would be a good idea. Performs just as good as the 3570k in gaming in most cases and blows it away in rendering speeds.

Right now it would be low and nothing else Main problem here is your graphic card to play on medium you need at least something like a 7770 or a 650.

As for the rest seems fine to run medium little more ram wouldn't hurt tho something like 8GB. And BTW a GT 610 is below recommended setting its pretty much at min requirement =/
