I found my brothers Birthday present! .......But I'll get mum to buy it -.-
More info here -> News: PlayStation 4 is official, Sony's 'most powerful platform ever' launching holiday 2013 - CVG Australia
GAH, no backwards compatibility? I was holding out for that..
You going Intel or AMD for the processor? And what GPUs?
My PC cost around 1800, but that was 2 years ago.
Prices have gone way down since then.
Going with AMD this time (a hell of a lot cheaper!!!)
Fatality 990 FX Gaming Board
8 core 4.2ghz CPU
2 X 2 gig 7870 GC
16gb DDR3 Ram
250gig SSD drive
CPU water cooling
1000w gaming supply
24 x Speed DVD Optical Blue Ray Drive
Promise no more highjacking the thread after this
PS4 will be pretty sweet tho...
im not liking the sound of the controller at all from what saximus has put up
touch pad would do nothing but annoy the crap out of me same with the motion sensors , i never really use the sixaxis thing on the ps3 because its to touchy , i can do it but i prefer to use the little sticks , at the end of the day the controller does just that , it controls what you do in the game if it isnt 100% user friendly its a big downfall for me
and im no game nerd but i assume this no backwards compatibility means we wont be able to use old games on it , count me out then , for the first few years anyway , ill upgrade one day when the ps3 is dead
Meanwhile.... still waiting for Microsoft to release the next Xbox.
:cry: :cry: :cry:
I built my PC for about $4500 nearly two years ago, should have waited for the products to become cheaper but I can't help it. If it is new I MUST have it haha
I loved the announcement. Thought they did a great job, and I'm very excited Can't wait to see more. Deep Down from Capcom looked awesome and Killzone looked beautiful. As far as I'm aware, Killzone was a live demo. PS4, here I come.
Is there any people here who have 360 or PS3?
Sadly, my old gaming PC (Built at the end of 2010...) with a i7 950 @5gz, 12gb 2133mhz ram in tri-chanel with duel 6870's @ 1250/1115 can run it fully maxed out at 1080p... It does however die off at any higher resolution than that.... (Only thing I want to replace is the GPU's when the 8XXX series comes out.) **Its the core clock speed that is limiting you. Push that and C3 will run better, I'm limited by my memory speed on my cards at the moment.**
How does your PC handle Planetside2 on max? PC hardware still has a way to go to catch some newer games that are designed with a PC in mind... The consoles are already not able to play some of these titles at max settings.
Also; Has anyone noticed that it looks like the two major consoles are looking more like a PC than last gen? Maybe there is a push to move to hardware that is easier to update each release cycle?
$4500 for a pc?
Please tell whats in it lol!
To justify that cost it'd either need a pair of 6990's or 590's and an i7 975... If that's the case, there is the majority of that 4500.
If I push it anywhere past 900Mhz, games crash. Even if I push the voltage from 1.15v to 1.3, makes no difference (well about 10-20mhz, so not worth it). Are you watercooled? I'm only on reference 2GB cards.
H100i with 4 decent fans.
The cards are Sapphire duel fan thingos, that I lapped and put diamond paste on. I think they are up around 1.38v or so.... I do find they need to be throttled back a fair bit in the middle of summer. <.<
I decided to build it while the parts were fresh on the market which accounts for the cost.
intel i7 2600k O.C. (4.8ghz)
16gb ddr3 1866mhz g.skill ripjaws x
ocz vertex 4 120gb x 2 (windows and linux)
nvidia gtx 570
cm 690 case (decided to go with mid tower case)
3 x 2tb WD cavier greens
old 640gb wb cavier black
coolIT cpu liquid cooler (single rad) - upgrading to a double rad corsair h100
asus p67 deluxe MB
27" acer led monitor
razer black widow ultimate keyboard
razer mamba mouse (old roommate broke it and never replaced it, grrr)
if I bought all the parts today (or even better ones) it would be under $3000, I'm just impatient haha
beast of a rig mate !
You will be gaming on that for years to come! Im still doing all my gaming on a 7 YO frankenstein HP desktop haha. No sides, 1 fan, cable ties holding most together funnily enough its been one of my most reliable machines to date!
Ohh i think i have some asian house geckos living inside it too lol... re-cable-tied the PSU back in today and 2 jumped out LOL.
Will the PS4 help me to annoy those 12yr olds with a shotty to the face MORE?? I hope so!
I've found it depends how you use it. The PS3 is good for gaming but the other features they built in are not that great.
I prefer consoles for games and PC for media but the Amiga turned me off PC gaming so after 20 years things may have changed
Im reading this, enjoying all the comments and then flicking through teh catalogues we get from work and deciding what my next gam..., I mean, work setup should contain..(PS: You guys have some phenominal setups though!)
I know my ps3 bluray player is a bit dodgy
Sorry Microsoft, looks like you lucked out...
