Rage PC Game
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Guess I was lucky? 10/24/2011

This review is from: Rage PC Game

Pros: Best graphics I've seen.
Completely Smooth gameplay on maxed settings.
Quickly Moving/Engaging story
Lots of side quests.
Linear - I enjoy shooters that continue moving forward and don't confuse me as to what to do next.

Cons: Had to do a little troubleshooting to get the game to boot. Once I disabled tripple buffering in ATI control panel it booted right up.
Played it through on the hardest difficulty (nightmare) wasn't that hard at all..

Other Thoughts: I guess I got lucky with my setup. I have a 6950 running on windows 7 64 bit. I have the newest 11.9 catalyst drivers running. I honestly didn't have a single bit of lag or texture popping or one crash to desktop in the 15+ hours it took me to beat the game. I loved rage.

Pros: Installed this with an aftermarket beast of a heatsink and set it to auto-clock based on my memory's speed and it booted up stable at 4.2 Ghz. Idles at around 32C which is an absolute joke. It's been a while that I have gamed and felt such stability. I feel like I could probably run 2 or 3 times the apps that I previously on my core2quad. There is just something about these second gen icore procs. The first gen was good, but wow this second gen line just blows me away.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I went with intel after a couple years of noticing the strength of there core2 product line. Recognize that Intel has it made right now in this league and use this product, you will be blown away too. I love AMD, I'm ATI all the way, but intel has them beat in the CPU realm.

Pros: Easily works at as advertized speed and latency.
Can be overclocked and remain stable.
Heatsinks keep the memory very cool and look good.
The memory itself feels solid.

Long story short, its Mushkin.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I have only used mushkin memory in my higher end builds for the passed 5 years that I have known about it. Never have I been dissapointed at all. I have only owned this set about a week but have no doubt it will last as long as I need it to without any hickup.
