Does your motherboard have an integrated graphics chip? I ran into a similar issue when I first built my rig, turns out some games were trying to run using that instead of the video card. Disabling the on-board graphics through an option in the bios fixed it.

Anyone else tired of the constant barrage of threads complaining about the constant snarkiness from the staff?

Dundee, Scotland.

Bit rough there, Eddie. "Congrats on the result, Ricciardo. Shame those Mercs destroyed you."

That was a close finish between the Mercs, I thought Rosberg had Hamilton for a second there. It's good to see Ricciardo grabbing a podium place. Maybe the FIA will let him keep it this time.

1. It's a From Software game. I don't think I've ever played a From game and thought, "Whoa, the graphics in this game are technically great!" Art style, sure. Technical graphics, nope.

2. The game isn't out yet. Calm the fuck down.

3. If graphics really matter that much to you, wait a month and pick up the PC version. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say the PC version will probably look better than the version released on last-gen consoles.

Man, this would all be so much simpler if there was a good UK equivalent of Newegg. I've searched for ages but haven't found a good one.

I'd recommend checking out scan.co.uk, ebuyer.com and overclockers.co.uk. I built my system fairly recently and I picked up all the parts from those three sites. Scan's generally the cheapest but ebuyer and overclockers do some pretty good special offers every now and again. I don't really have much more advice for you that hasn't been mentioned already, I'd look into picking up a 600-750 watt power supply. I've always used Corsair PSUs and I've never had any issues with any of them. As far as cases go, just go for something that you like the look of but check that your motherboard and graphics card will fit first.

Does anyone know if they ship to the UK and if so how much to ship?

Yeah, they ship to the UK. I just ordered two and the cheapest shipping cost $17.14 which roughly translates to £11.35.
