  1. I would try to get an intel processor instead, and only get 8 gb ram (if you're only gonna do gaming) and maybe spend the extra money + save up some extra for a better graphic card.
  2. Gintama or GTFO.
  3. Miss A - Suzy :love:
  4. "10.1”" screen "Accessories sold separately (Gamepad Controllers, Keyboard Dock, Docking Station)" My advice is: Build your own Desktop PC from scratch.
  5. Ahh ok, yes I see, yes it says something about 16 -_- Thanks guys.
  6. Hello, I am able to log into the game, select any character that I have, but when I try to log in a character it gives me some weird error. Anyone know what could be wrong?
  7. For MMORPGS the keyboard and mouse is quite irrelevant. RTS games benefit a little more from a good Keyboard whereas in a FPS-shoot em' up's would gain more from a good Mouse. All in all, noneed to go expensive, and if you're only aiming to play BNS or WoW or any other similar game, then noneed to upgrade at all. The gaming accessory will not make you a better player, only training will.
  8. Any mid/high range Coolermaster case imo.
  9. I bet those Anime bed sheets and figures are popular with the girls :big_smile:
  10. Say what now? I have never heard of this ... any video on this? Also I do not plan to do SLI or Xfire at all (atleast not with highends cards), it seems a littlebit overkill since my monitor only supports 75hz anyways, I would be having more FPS than whats supported thus having a bunch of FPS I am never gonna use ...no?
  11. I am playing WoW too, would an i5, and a 670 stil be the better choice in my particular case? Since I heard WoW supports those cards more, than ATI's.
  12. Solved it. Did some WINDOWS UPDATES, and the installation worked. /CLOSE
  13. Hey guys, atm I'm sitting on a ~800$ Laptop, which is nowherenear designed for gaming, so I've decided to build my own stationary computer. I would like someone with a very similar system as the one I am going to build (see below), to post his/her fps experiences etc. in BNS. Also I am asking if this system is OK, to max my graphics while stil not going overboard as I only intend to use it for gaming purposes and maybe Fraps in the future. :adore: List of parts: Chassi: CM Storm Trooper Gaming Big Tower http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=649659 Mobo: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=748566 CPU: Intel® Core i7-3770K Graphic: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 670 2GB AMP! http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=751360 Memory: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL8 http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=618010 Harddrive: Corsair SSD Force Series GT 120GB 2.5 http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=634168 PSU: Cooler Master GX 750W PSU http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=593204 Total price for this is about ~1800 Thanks for reading //
