Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, it has recently dawned on me like an alcoholic has an epiphany that my PC has reached its milestone fifth birthday. This means it is time to send her off to turn her into dog food and glue, but the question remains in what PC I will ride for the next five years. Here is where the lovely PA community comes in!
I just got a brand new graphics card last week, a GeForce GTS 250 1G, and I had to buy a new power supply this summer when my old one caught on fire (literally, it started smoking and smelled like someone put a lego in the toaster), which is an Antec SG650. My Hard Drives have a lot of stuff I'd rather not have to reinstall, along with some things I cannot reinstall at all due to various companies having faggoty 30 day install policies on digital downloads, so I need to keep them (but am not averse to getting a third if necessary). So, long story short, I would really appreciate some recommendations for good cost effective:
Processor (or Mobo/CPU bundles)
Rig will be used mostly for gaming, but I'm not a huge performance geek. I'm fine with long-ish load times, I just want to be able to play the next five years' worth of games without suffering with FPS in the teens. My price range is about $800, and I am totally fine with running 4G of RAM over 8G.
Thanks in advance for any friendly people who recommend me things, and a big fuck you to all Amish people.
