    Rosewill PSU? No way. Seriously, don't cheap out on a PSU, even if you get it cheap.



    Rosewill PSU are of fine quality all of the computers I build in rl for people are rosewill PSU and my personal computers are all rosewill. None have died so far im using nearly the max power on my current one and it delivers what it says.

    Ram is overkill if you really want allot just stick with 8 gigs. The whole build it self is probbly overkill for skyrim it not particularly mind blowing graphics wise. If you have this kinda money why not get a intel 2500k there faster.

    Good quality and horrificly expensive. You have to buy a 3D kit which is a fourth of the price of your rig, get a Nvidia3D approved GPU, and a monitor that is able to go to 120ghz. THEN you may have to buy another GPU of the same kind to boost performance because it cuts your fps in half. But yes... they do have more propriety junk then you can imagine. Nparticles... a library for nvidia GPU only for amazing particles, that so far has only been used in one game. Nphysx... Physics on the GPU, which is never used BECAUSE it means that the game would need to be for that game only if the engine allowed such a thing, only Dark Night used it. Quite frankly not everyone is willing to pay for an Nvidia GPU.

    AMD does it different, it allows what ever 3D equipment you can throw at it. Physics? Meh... they aren't worried about it. They focused on graphic and hardware acceleration on a massive multitude of apps on an open standard.


    Yes 3D is expensive so is Samsung so is Nvida and you forget Nvidia 3D was out in 2008 before AMD even had support for 3D. Nvidia cards can cost more but allot of the time they do performance better compared tessellation performance between Nvidia and AMD gpus.

    AMD has also done proprietary stuff too.
    3Dnow!
    ATI steam was basicly CUDA for ATI cards before they switch to open standard
    Avivo video converter

    Offloading physics onto a GPU was not a terrible idea but today with the large multi core cpus we have its kinda useless.

    Like I said... multi-taskers... which does not always mean gaming >.<. For all we know, in the near future he may become a whiz in Flash, or 3D where the ram does matter.

    But yes, nothing will go over four on it's own. Unless you are running vista... then may god help you.


    Well maybe someday he will want a render farm so he could get quad gtx 590.

    You don't recomend parts based on what they might need them for if they say the build is for gaming you give parts for gaming plus its not like its hard to throw in some extra ram should some day he need it.

    It is actually quite excellent. While it is not smart... it will do great in first person shooters. One... you don't need to read crap and half the time you are looking at the colors of the text over someones name. Two blobby graphics in a fps adds depth surprisingly, it looks like mud clumps on the glass some time which I do love. Three... who cares? It makes things look nice with little performance hit, and no extra purchase of proprietary junk is needed. -Cough- Nvidia -Cough-

    I hate minor blurness like that i prefer things look crisp and sharp.


    I have never seen nvidia charge for proprietary junk for Anti Aliasing. There proprietary 3D has been around for a while and is of good quality.

    I have games hit 3gigs or so of ram usage so you want 4-6 gigs of ram more then 6 is waste for gaming.

    2gig cards are useless unless your using eyefinity or a really high resolution monitor. At 1080p they offer no performance boost.


    If your talking about the new morphological anti aliasing its pretty much crap most of the time it makes text unreadable or just makes everything slightly blurry. If it does work it does so with little performance hit compared to other forms of antialsing.

    Lower resolution then the one he linked. A person in commits said it runs sc2 flawlessly so it should handle minecraft

    Java will let you mod and make plugins for minecraft. The main difference between c and c++ is c++ is object orientated i knew c++ and it has never been really useful ever I've forgotten allot of it for that reason. You can also make bukkit plugins with python but i would say learn Java.

    Either that or they were rendered via the tech demo, which was between medium and high but also was not suitable for very much in terms of actual gameplay since it was so unfinished.


    Either way a gtx580 will easily run high at a solid 60 fps.

    Early trailers were from the alpha and beta, which are both locked at "medium" settings.

    Even if you set it to ultra in the beta, the engine is still locked at medium and there is no difference in quality.


    The early trailers looked better then the beta maybe they weren't ultra but they were not medium. Possibly high maybe.
