  1. I got that problem too ever since the new update.
  2. If you can get a gtx 970. Then get it. If the gtx 970 cost like $50 more. It's worth it cause the performance difference is quite big imo for the prices A R9 280X can beat a gtx 960 as well. Based on the benchmarks I have seen online. I believe they are priced the same, but I could be wrong.
  3. The 8350 completely dominates the 1100T. IMO you will get around 45 fps (depending on your gpu). Look at steparu BnS videos. He has a i7 3770k and he plays perfectly even though he has a titan(modern gpu can do the well as well at 1080p). In game performance, the 8350 and i7 aren't that far apart. Also, no matter what high end system you have. You will experience lag if the server is crowded as hell. I would say get a 8350 or 8370(performance is no different) and spend the rest on gpu. Get a SSD if you can(cause why wouldn't you have a ssd at this time?) Also, when I had a 8350. I also used a gtx 680. FPS was around 50-60 fps max on 1080p with 15+ people no screen fighting monsters. Although I guess the number cause there were a lot and who really counts the amount of people when you are there to enjoy the game lol.
  4. I don't think so. You might be able to on the lowest settings. I had a 4350 which was slightly better than the gt 210 and I couldn't run blade and soul well. I always see through the ground in game lol. Also that 1gb of ram won't play it well or not play at all. You need minimum 4gb to run it I believe, But getting 8gb is more safe. OS would be better on 64 bit. This my opinion based on 1080p resolution.
  5. RIP Robin Williams - I will never forget you

      I loved his Crazy Ones show too, and was sad to see it cancelled.

  6. I don't know if this is old news but here http://www.mmobomb.com/news/black-desert-north-american-beta-confirmed-for-early-2015/ I sort of lost my hype for BnS since I continued on with my life. :(
  7. try this
  8. Can someone post some male Jin PvP Dobok. I am looking for Hon Chun Cult and Lawful League / Moo-Lim Allegiance mostly. The wikia lacks the male outfits.. I am sorry if this is the wrong place to put this topic. Thank you. What outfits do they give for this quest?
  9. Can someone post some male Jin PvP Dobok. I am looking for Hon Chun Cult General and Lawful League / Moo-Lim Allegiance general mostly. The wikia only showed the female. I am sorry if this is the wrong place to put this topic. Thank you
  10. There are other builds. Also Intel stuff. let me know if anyone wants to see more.
  11. Here's a youtube link. Look at the description. They are budget amd build that you will like.
  12. LOL If I can play B&S with this...My head will hurt.
  13. If you can, I would recommend getting the 4gb model if your are using multi monitor.(Higher Res) Also, if money is the problem then IMO go for the 8350. My mind is blank atm from the cold weather. Will tell or answer more later.
  14. Where's the love~?

  15. I tried the game up to few levels. I tried to play more but got bored. Besides the boobies, it was similar to other games. Your Character talking to you. That is similar to scarlet legacy online. Transforming into machine. That is is done I believe. Gameplay was alright. It's nothing new. Story was hollow to me. Sorry if my statement was useless. I just had to put it out there. Forgive me~
