I wish I could remember what GPU I have. 460? 560? It's really never been important...

....not even the day you bought it huh? Wink


Heh, I went for bang for the buck at that point, putting the money into the CPU instead, with the expectation I'd build a new one within 18 months.
Been 26, no real reason to replace it, either.

I'm glad Ubisoft is starting to come to its senses regarding its (hopefully former) DRM scheme.

Far Cry 3 is looking pretty damn sweet.

Yep, nice to see an evolutionary FPS with a protagonist.

I like the way they made the prey animals aggressive too- the fact is that IRL they injure/kill more people than predators do because people are dumb enough to think that they won't.

Not signing up for UPlay nor Origin. The last thing I want is another fucking "social client" , running in the background, that phones home to mommy with my info. Having one (Steam) is bad enough.
