  1. - Thank you for your recommendations, regarding picking AMD 8350 instead of Intel 3570k, The 8350 is really charming with 4Ghz SPD, and 8 cores and many ppl say AMD CPU's are best for gaming, Thus if I'll go with it I'll have to change my MOBO and GPU Card. - I think AMD CPU with AMD GPU will work better than AMD CPU with Nvidia GPU, what do you think? - This is an AMD build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/B4yw *Sorry for the late reply, I was working Swing Shift.
  2. - Let's face it, there will be no SA / ME release for B&S. - CN, JP and KR have their own servers; so I'm guessing that there will be no Excessive load on NA Server. - If the quality of the server is great which I think it's going to be, there will be less problems with lag. - The possibility of NA server being IP Locked is like 55 - 60%. - In my opinion I don't want it to be IP locked, and if they decided too I hope they'd exclude some countries. *Our opinions may differ !!!
  3. - I've thought it all over, and did some changes to this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zXIF
  4. - 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.
  5. - Thank you guys for your participation in the thread. - 30 members / guild is a lil bit low I hope it'd be increased.
  6. - I've updated my components to this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zFwp
  7. you have some nice content on youtube.I'll subscribe XD

  8. - Thanks, that is some useful information you've gave me. +Karma for you & Faiyez when the quota for postive feedback resets.

  11. - Sup Man, I was MIA for a while and sorry for that, I hope you're doing well.

  12. - Good Evening to Everyone. - Thinking about Guilds; 3 questions came up to my mind. - What is the limit of membership/guild and can they be expanded to house even more members? - Will they have like a Guild Quarters where guildies can meet up / sort plans and ....etc. - I guess that's it, thanks in advance.
  13. - 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.
  14. - I hope this build would be good http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zubv.
  15. - Thank you though for the care, and sorry for not replying to your comments.
