September 14 the new X99 Chipset will be released wich means if you buy x79 now you buy obsolete hardware if i was you i would wait a month, but other than that your build looks good.

Here is my Suggested build:

  • Asus or gigabyte socket LGA 2011-3 X99 Motherboard 299$-500$
  • 8gb-16gb of DDR4 Memory 300-500$
  • Haswell-E 5930 6 Core or 5960X 8 Core CPU 1100$-1500$

or you could go the less expensive but more economical route:

  • Asus or Gigabyte Z-97 socket LGA 1150 Motherboard 200$
  • 8-16GB DDR3 200-300$
  • Haswell i7 4790K 300$

Good Luck with your Build ;-).

Anyone else noticed some hipster/negative attitude at the giantbomb streams, especially at the beginning of microsoft press briefing?. i tried to watch 5 min and then i closed the page and went to watching their instead.

Also all the other streams giantbomb have showed a unproffesional attitude, jaded/bitter/angry at the industry wich is understandable if i was in their place, but remember who your fans are giantbomb!. also remember without fans,you are nothing but ordinary journalist. This is just my opinion.PS! i am very good at spotting negativity, i saw Vinny struggle to keep the positive spirit up.

@Cashewual: yep Sonic CD works with my xbox 360 gamepad for windows, so it surely must work with other gamepads for pc also.

PS3 demo of DMC was totally acceptable, except the camera and cramped areas, nothing groundbreaking. My preditiction: Mixed bag. Something, good or a whole lot of garbage. Time will tell, i'll wait and see.

2012 has had it moments, but the game industry has crawled to a halt, with sequels and little inspiration from the big developers.

While the indie game is growing and thriving.The other developers are crushing their head against a concrete wall wich is neverending. While new console will remedy this short term, this will maybe happen again, who knows what the future holds.

People can't change the way you are, it must come from yourself. Everyone is taking a own approach to coping with stress, and life i general.Just do what you feel is right.Don't let anyone say otherwise.

Good luck with life duder, choose your own path.Carve it out if you need to.Life is not always meaningless, if you just try out new things, one time is enough.

Thank you all for your opinions and comments. This has been a learning experience.

it is very hard for me to blog, because if i say something wrong, or stupid i get afraid, and just go back into the shadow hiding.This a instinct i had even online playing multiplayer games,filled with people who makes it unbearable to even play online.Singleplayer purist that is me to be 100% honest.

unntil next time, see you duders take care all.

Multiplayer focus is killing singleplayer games why add multiplayer to games that don't need it like mass effect 3,bioshock 2,deadspace 2 and 3,Resident evil 6 etc.This tacked on multiplayer is bad for us that likes pure singleplayer games,what is the point in singleplayer if you need an ai partner like resident evil 5 and 6.This will probably happen with deadspace 3,or if they added a pure singleplayer mode,would be nice.God of war accension has tacked on multiplayer mode hopefully they leave the singleplayer intact,and no co-op crap.Games and multiplayer is nice when there is a firm and solid reason for it,by even adding it ontop during the deadline is why singleplayer one day will be gone,bit by bit multiplayer will take over the focus.and poof you will all play multiplayer games and have no other choice then going retro,to play singleplayer.Good luck gamers,and game company's.This singleplayer era is gone for good soon.

Side Rant:

Games in general has changed.i Feel that i can't catch up with gaming that i used to.Money has been a driving force for game developers in the past,but on another scale today.they use so much money on pr and commercials i don't even know how to see trough,what is pr bullshit and what is real.Because the big hitters: Call of Duty,Mario,Zelda,Gears of War,God of War,Forza,Metal gear Solid the list goes on.good games exsist,but when the marked is overflooded with other games,wich i really want to play i get confused easily,and then decide,not play anything at all.

PS! suggestions and discussions are welcome.Have a good weekend duders!.

Here are some recommendation in your price range:

  • NVIDIA 650ti about 90£ and up
  • AMD 7770 about 93£ and up
  • AMD 6870 if you can find it for cheap maybe second hand

i checked scan uk and thoose cards are in your price range.if you save or have more money get either a 660ti or AMD 7870 gpu.
