The PC Gaming Thread
It's all fine and dandy having a thread for PS4, Xbox One and Wii U, but there's another next gen gaming machine out there, you know, and technically it's next gen all the time.

Yes, this is a thread to share PC hugs and talk about all things PC Gaming.

It may well be spurred on by the fact that I finally managed to sort myself out with a PC that sort-of plays recent games (and will be even better when I can grab a better graphics card).

So, what games are PC players looking forward to over the next few months.

I'm wondering what I need to upgrade first to make my PC more gaming-fit.

A8 3.2Ghz Processor
4GB DDR3 RAM
Nvidia GT 620 Graphics
300W PSU

either I could go cheap and get a Radeon 7750 which would mean I don't have to update the PSU or just use an old PSU I have and get a better card, but pay more.

Then RAM could make a lot of difference, too.

As it is I can run games like Borderlands 2 at medium settings.

If I can run The Division on my PC, I dont need any of the next gen consoles Wink

One would expect a lot of the Xbox one games to end up on PC as well.

EDIT @pb

more ram, because it's cheap, and I got a Radeon 7770 for roughly £100 I think. GPU and RAM will make the most difference but I suspect you may still need a new PSU anyway, which at the cheap end is another 40-50 quid.

You'll notice more of a difference with a more powerful GPU, most games barely use the CPU and you can always benefit from more system ram, if only so you can alt-tab back to Windows and it still be usable lol. Plus Win 7 uses nearly 2gb of ram anyway i think.

Yeah, maybe RAM.

The 7750 runs with low power and is under £80. Youtube videos seem to make it look like it can run most things.

But those bigger cards are so much faster...

Love the thread Thumbup

I'm quite looking forward to Watch Dogs on PC. And the Division. Ubi's really been stepping up their A game as of late.

I've shifted towards PC gaming, at least for current gen titles, having gotten this back in March for £900.
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...riesId=5295991

I know I could have custom built for cheaper, but I just couldn't be bothered shopping around for all the parts in that level of detail.
Bought it from Amazon with next day delivery and it was little different from buying a console.

The main reason was actually for videos.
I'd been making do with this Sony Vaio laptop I got in 2009, with it's 2ghz Intel Core 2 Duo and making 720p videos of entire game levels, such as the Metal Gear Rising playthrough, would take around 12 hours or more to render.
As an experiment, I tried doing one of the levels on my Dad's desktop for work (Intel i5) and it blew through a video in about 3 hours.

Now my PC can render 720p videos faster than real time. About 65fps, which is mind blowing have been using the laptop and, prior to that, a Pentium 4 3.06ghz system I built in 2003!

So yes, future games... I'm not too sure, with the new consoles coming at the end of the year. I can't tell yet if something like Watchdogs would actually run better on the PS4 than the PC.
I would imagine it would to be honest, but we shall see!

I have so many 7th gen games to catch up with though, now in glorious 1080p and over 30fps.
Plus mods.
