Far Cry 3 PC Game
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs 12/23/2012

This review is from: Far Cry 3 PC Game

Pros: Graphics,coding and very fun .
more about the grahics , when i first saw BF3 i was amazed at the adaptive AA , but this game amazed me once again , the lighting effects are very spectacular i can't even explain the rest. just get a Dx11 GPU and see for your self.
RUNS well on my AMD CPU, i was getting between 92% and 99% most of the time. some seens it would consistantly stay at 99% for over 20 mins without dropping.
I liked the cut seens and the story.

Cons: only issue i had was when i was just figuring out the new voltages for my GPU on this game , everytime i had to reload the game i couldn't skip the cut scenes ; which is sorta nice so you don't skip it by pressing exit when trying to get to the menu , but still can be anoying , anyways doesn't deserve to have an egg taken.

Other Thoughts: CPU:Phenom 965 x4 3924mhz

RAM:1600mhz 8GIGs 7-7-7-24

GPU:7950 1150core,1575mem

HDD:SSDboot/w 4x2TB black raid 0

this game is very rough on your GPU not a CON though, I normaly ran very well at 99% GPU usage on games like BF3 for hours on end , but on this game my display driver kept not responding i had to up the voltage a tad for stability.

PowerColor PCS+ AX7950 3GBD5-2DHPP Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: quiet and fast.
Massive improvements over my previous xfx 5850 in DX11 games , in some cases 600%+ improvements.I was impressed how well my AMD phenom II 965 Scales the GPU. HIGH res future proofed

Cons: Freezes from lack of voltage in Crysis 2(had to take an egg), I either have downclock core or up the voltage to fix it.Driver issues from some games unable to load up while AA turned on or some games unable to read the 3GB memory locks the seetings on minamum, this specific issue is with all 3GB+ cards though.O btw idk if this is a con , depends on your opinion , but this card is wide , very wide measure your case , I have a large case i spend 300$ on two months ago and i can't close the door on it , but it still fits lol :P

Other Thoughts: I can't wait to buy another one for crossfire , I'll probely wait for 8xxx series ;

ASUS ROG Vulcan ANC 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Pro Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sound is quality(minus the buzz)the head phones did have good base and the noise cancelling worked pretty decently.
pretty decent case.

Cons: Constant buzzing sound,disableing microphone FP helps.you will get sick of the fuzzy sound after 10 mins . you have to have the sound about 45%+ to block out most of the fuzzy/buzzing sound.the left speaker only works intermittently, I have to keep twisting,pulling and turning the cord to try to get the left speaker back , this started happeing about 8 months in and now it's getting worst and worst.

Other Thoughts: I bought an expensive headset so i can get quality from my 230$ creative sound card
