  • Got a new computer. Ready for Arena Commander.

    So my pc broke when I moved the other weekend so I decided it was time to get a new one!
    This one is sure to handle SC when it's released and I'm now looking forward to flying a lot of AC with you guys!

        nice, you should be good for a while and let us know how it behaves. Also, feel like going with Windows 10 when it comes out?

        Just wait a little while and you could get a nice 1 Tb SSD for when SC comes out. Who knows how big the game will be when the full version comes out. I really think the game will need an SSD for the solar systems.

          Nice build! How much did it cost?

          The only thing is the memory "scandal" with the vram on the 970's. I would've gone with dual 290x instead.

            Yeah it doesn't have an excessive amount of storage atm since that's something I can always add more of later. A big SSD would be nice. [MENTION=34399]di1lweed1212[/MENTION]
            It cost me 1754 in dollars. Got the 970's for 233$ cheaper thanks to a deal so that's why I picked them. What "scandal" though? That doesn't sound good? xD

              well, they labeled the 970's RAM as being all one type. About 3.5Gb of it is the same while the .5 is broken off from the main cluster and is sort of slower than the rest, so there is a weird bottle neck.

                  well, not really a bad setup for a card and you may or may not have to worry as i think that was a revision 1 problem for the 970.

                      Fenster, just remember this for the future, my two AMD HD7950 have 3GB each and I have yet to crash because of a lack of VRAM.

                          The only time that the Vram will affect gameplay will be when it goes over that 3.5gb section, which will not happen barely ever, so it's really nothing to worry about at all XD

                          That's a good build for that much money and a good deal on the 970's. What case also? I love me some sexy cases.

                          I have the same thing you do siege but with 7970's. I'm hoping they optimize the game a lot more before the fps module, as with one, or two cards, not breaking 60fps in the hangar on high.
