Upgrading mobo/cpu/ram seems less and less appealing with these prices. My i5-2600k OC to 4.3 is still chugging along just fine.
I'll probably get a new video card next year though the 970 is showing it's age in some games.
Not planning to jump on the 4k bandwagon just yet. I think we still have a bit of time before games catch up to that resolution in terms of optimization.

What games does your 970 struggle with in 1080p?
I bought mine, wow, actually about 2 years ago. I kept thinking it was last winter. Cost $370, and I knew I was buying at the tail end of its cycle and therefore overpaying, but it's still been serving me pretty well. Guess I haven't bought any of the big games of the past year, though
Destiny 2 gets some pretty big frame drops during some intense fights with a bunch of enemies and crap going on at the same time. Also games like Total War Warhammer2 in big battles, even BF1 in big battles sometimes slows down.

To be honest I haven't deep dived into the graphics menus to figure out what to turn on or off to gain some frames because especially in Destiny for the most part the game runs flawlessly.

I am thinking of upgrading to a 1440p monitor so I will definitely need a new video card when that happens.

Lol. Apparently EA removed the refund button for BF2

Don't have the pre-order, so can't verify, but hilarious if true.
I doubt that is true.
Game isn't released til Friday so that may be the reason why the refund option isn't active.

Single Player seems to be getting decent reviews. But no bots, right?
There is an Arcade mode which is you against bots. It is not the same as the online MP mode with bots but still fun imo.
If I remember correctly they did add bot matches into the first BF after release.

Looks like this will be another happy, cheerful EA thread.
The hate meter on the BF2 threads are rapidly closing in on the Star Citizen ones.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II Grind Complaints

Grinding is fine and all. I actually enjoy unlocking stuff as I go.

But, if what people are saying here is true, and it's 40 hours per hero. In nearly all games you should unlock everything of any significance within 40 hours, not one thing. I get that some unlocks are skill based, and some are for prestiging or whatever, and those will take a while, but every weapon and every character within 40 hours seems reasonable.

One character within 40 hours seems like insanity.
I think 2 of the heroes are the ones that cost this much to unlock, Wader and Luke. The others are less.

I hate what gaming has become.
This is unfortunately how all AAA games are in 2017
Indy games are the way to go if you are looking for free maps, mods etc.
Loot crates or DLC to avoid the grind is nothing new in EA games. I remember 10yrs ago playing their golf game where you could buy for real money a maxed out character to avoid leveling your golfer up.
So I am not sure why this is such a huge deal now. It's been like this for EA games for a long time.
Even in BF4 you could pay real money to have all guns unlocked etc.
It's the way EA nickle and dimes the shit out of gamers.

There isnt a problem with making unlocking heroes hard. The problem exists in the context of loot boxes, where the motivation to buy a hero via lootboxes is increased with more grind.
This is the alternative to season passes and paid dlc.
I personally much prefer this method to the paid dlc and season passes. At least this doesn't divide up the player base like paid dlc maps did

One last push before they turn this game into free to play or just cut their losses and move on.
Cliffy can blame the pirates or something

Hirshberg is CEO of Activision, which is a subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, of which Bobby is CEO.
Ahh that explains it, thanks Beamer

I didn't care much for this game til I've watched Jack's video yesterday. Now I am considering getting EA Access just to give this a try.

I'm running a 970 and my monitor is only 1080p so I see no reason to upgrade any time soon. Just about everything I play runs fine for me so I'll check the next gen cards but not really motivated to upgrade unless I get a new higher res monitor
