Nice, does it run much smoother than the consoles? I can't wait to replace this CPU, my old setup will be going to the kids.

How is gigabyte these days for mobo's? I was thinking between Asus and Gigabyte, possibly a Z68 so I have room to upgrade plus I was reading Ivy Bridge might be compatible with the Z68 mobo's but nothing confirmed that I can find.

I had a stretch where I had nothing but issues with Asus, weird blue screens for no reason, odd CTD, and just instabilities. I don't know how their new chipsets are, but I switched to ASRock and have had nothing but good things to say about them.

Not sure about Gigabyte, I have never run a board by them.

Yeah, my last few have been ASRock. The 990FX is great, as is the 970FX. I've had a couple of m-ATX boards from Gigabyte that were pretty solid, but if you can, try to grab a ASRock. The top tier Asus (RoG) are pretty good boards, but not worth the premium that you pay to get them.

Anyone know why newegg is no longer carrying OCZ ram?

I have the 4 gig OCA Reaper and would like to grab another 4 gigs of the same just for stability reasons. Yet I might have to go to a outside source for that, which sucks cause Newegg is the best.

It's easy to make your own now with the FXAA injector mods. Goes for any DX9 game.

I've read about people having some issues with the Asus Z68 mobo's. It looks like TigerDirect/CompUSA doesn't carry ASRock, did you get them from Newegg?

How is PNY with their video cards?

I picked up the EVGA 560 2GB GDDR5 card, ran a few things on it so far and runs games much much smoother than my GTS 250.

Which has framerate effects for those with lesser computers. The miracle jerseys and stadiums do not.

Re: OS Steam and Computer Gaming Thread

I have decided on this GTX 560 Ti
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814500231



$250 with mail in rebate Plus Battlefield 3. So basically the card for 200 plus the game.
