    Quote from 16cadrian

    That's what I was thinking, he could have gotten a GTX670 and maybe an SSD for the price of the GTX680...
    Edit: and he uses the stock cooler...


    I would have gotten the gtx 680 in that position SSDs are not that expensive he could easily pick one up later and get it.
    The gtx 670 is a crap deal I have been over this.

    I would have gotten a 7970 instead but still solid build.

    -snip-


    Skyrim had some decently unique quests but half the time I found them while wondering blindly in the mountains I think the terrain of Skyrim makes it harder to find quests. It also seems like they tried to avoid the cities being giant quest hubs.
    But I think overall Oblivion might have had better quests.
    But Skyrim while still flawed has had the best Combat systems we have seen from any TES game.
    Skre mod fixes all the big flaws and makes the combat quite a bit of fun.

    But I blame most of Skyrims flaws on the Xbox 360 and PS3, I really want to see what Bethesda can pull off with the power of the Nexbox and the PS4.

    Quote from Sillen

    Oh look, it's BC_Programming defending Microsoft, the only one in this thread doing it. Maybe it's because he relies so much on their products and does not want what he has invested so much time into to be hated on?

    Oh, and most gamers are probably going to stick with Windows 7 for as long as Microsoft keeps supporting it.


    He is not defending them he is just being truth full.

    In all honesty Windows 8 UI is not nearly as bad as people are making it out to be most people just hate change.

    Quote from DawnOfNights

    That would be awesome! An Os based on Vlave, sweet!
    That is something I would buy, not this piece of crap windows 8.


    Ya except that it would only have valve games because everyone else is still going to use DirectX unless MS ****s up something.

    Ya that stupid Windows 8 with its optimizations to lower memory usage and the new scheduler that is giving some cpus gains in the 6-10% range.


    If you hate Windows 8 program menu then never switch to a Linux distro the vast majority of DE have a similar set up.

    Yeah... Windows 8 testing is a no go right now for me. It keeps cutting off.


    And that is why mankind invented torrents.

    They aren't hard to find but I don't know if I am aloud to link it here.

    Haven't started the game in quite a while actually the only thing that kept me playing was my plugin.
    I don't even have it installed on my desktop atm.
    Also Fm my friend owns a tekkit server if you wanted to mess with it.

    No promises however, I am probably going to say screw it half way in. Not to mention you can't really say that my performance is truely legitimate. But if I do go with it, (I'd stop if the download doesn't finish within today) than I'd be honest about it. I am not expecting Windows to perform better with the Bulldozer, unless Windows decide to say "We will do the best we can!" like they did for the Intel "I" series. They started off horrible in windows xp, and became amazing in windows 7.







    That was with a very early version of Windows 8 and they only ran 2 tests I crave more information but they showed signs of hope.

    Durp, Alright. But I am using the Windows 8 First. OEM disk and all. I just don't feel like having to call Microsoft to reactivate.

    So far my most Modern Games would be...
    Tribes: Ascension
    Deus Ex Machinima: Human Revelations
    Skyrim


    Skyrim and Deus Ex it is.

    Unless you have Civilization 5. I know the AI is supposed to be well threaded and I have never seen anyone do a turn time comparison of an I5 and a Bulldozer cpu a benchmark in this would allow me to make basic comparisons.

    Sure... if you could direct me to a link where I can get a recent build of it... Windows webpage GUI is very... elusive. T_T

    EDIT

    I got it... mother of god this is going to take forever on my slow internet. Give me a link to the benchmarks you would like me to run.


    I will try to keep the list low unless you honestly interested but this list should give a decent idea.

    Just 1-2 games you have preferably modern games released in the past 3 years.
    Handbrak benchmark just record some generic video of some game with fraps render it with h.264.
    Luxrender
    http://www.luxrender.net/wiki/Benchmarks

    I expect to see little gains in Luxrender and Handbreak
    However I expect to see the larger gains in any less threaded program like games.

    Just run them all once under 7 then again under 8 upload times and I can make fancy graphs out of them for my own reasons.

    I expect the major review sites won't get around to this until the release of Windows 8.
    But it would be nice to have more information on how Microsoft has optimized for the BD arch Tomshardware did a small preview with a earlier build of it and saw some improvement.

    So if you would be kind enough to maybe do some benchmarking of Windows 8 on BD that would be nice.

    Quote from Hlywood

    So in a nutshell, the default windows 8 has no desktop. It has basicially an app store and a start bar. So Gabe fears people will turn to publishing games on the "app store" rather than on steam. And since steam is an application that has to be found and downloaded, he figures people who do not know about steam will simply check the app store for games.


    Uhhhhhhh about the no desktop thing.



    The app store still lacks quite a few features of Steam and I doubt games will quit using it any time soon.

    Also if they hate app stores why the **** are they moving to Ubuntu.


    Notice how Ubuntu has a market and it has games.

    but you'd think at least one or 2 of them would be found in morrowind, cyrodil, or skyrim, skyrim probably less so.


    Elysweyr is part of the Aldemri Dominion ATM and Skyrim Morrowwind and Cyrodil are members of the Empire.
    I doubt there is much movement over the border, General Tullius mentions the entire Imperial army (excluding the forces in Skyrim handling the civil war) are guarding the border.

    Traditionally Elysweyr has never rarely been on the same side as Skyrim or Morrowwind, this also contributes to the low population of Khajiit.

    The Khajiit we see in Skyrim or Cyrodill have been Suthay-raht.
    The ones who can be mistaken for bosmer are called Ohmes.

    I don't really care about it being the fastest you know... I am just giving it something people have not. A damn chance. And the way you are putting it, you are expecting me to only get 4 fps XD.


    No one has ever said we hate it because its not the fastest. I don't need to buy a I3 to know its slower then an I5.

    The 8150 is still a pretty **** deal.
    However the 8120 is pretty good deal for a cheap workstation computer.
    But this is still a gaming forum so people are going to look down on them pretty hard because compared to Intels CPUs for gaming they are more expensive and slower.

    As far as I can tell from Tom's Hardware's desktop Trinity benchmarks, all they've done is traded floating point calculation speed for integer calculation speed.


    Uhh what Trinity is better then BD across the board Floating point calculation speed is a lot slower on any BD based arch such as pd.
