Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

I just hope my computer can run it! but I guess if it runs MW3 it should run this, right? right?

Yeah. Where did you see that?

Read my post above his.  G2A is a good site for game sales.
Somehow I didn't see that post. Oops.

More than likely. BF4 is a beast but the specs for MW3 were similar if I recall correctly.

BF4 is kind of in its own class.  You get a better card it will eat it.


And I agree the bump from 770 to 970 is not enough to make the $ worth it until you realize how much you can sell your 770 for.  You can get a 970 for a steal with the funds from the 770!  Craigslist is your pal.

Ben has an Nvidia GTX770.  One generation old and pushing two years old.  Damn fine card to say the least.  New they were around $450.

Nvidia just introduced the Nvidia GTX970.  A solid bump in performance from the 770.  That said not enough to pay $340 which is the going price for the 970.

Now, since Nvidia is no longer making the770 anymore the folks who need one (so they can put two together) will pay more for a used unit than you might think.

So.  Say a used 770 was going for $210, now they might be pushing $260.  Thus Ben sells his two year old 770 for $260 on Craigslist.  Then gets a brand new 970 for $330.  He gets a new card of the latest build for $70.  Seems like an easy decision.

Please note I haven't researched the numbers.  Those are likely fairly close however Ben would have to do a quick search to see what is what and do the math.  I have done this myself in the past and it is a fairly common practice in the gaming group I socialize with.

I can't even justify the $70 though since I run everything on high settings and it spits out the graphics like it is child's play.

No, we can play the base maps just fine.  I have premium so I have a bunch more maps and I'd recommend it if you get into the game.

EA's Steam.  Just as bullshit as Unisoft's version.

I don't get the browser hate. I'd rather be fucking around on the net while my game loads instead of staring at a loading screen.

And Unisoft is soooo much worse than Origin.
