  2. make sure you get that warranty right away on that OCZ Power Supply, they make some great SSD's but quiet unfamiliar with their PSU's. Im jealous of your Ivy Bridge, I still got my SanDy Extreme. Good Rig.
  3. The reason I went with the OCZ 750Watt is that it give the same 5 years warranty as Corsair and it has been recomended by one of me friends "enthusiast extreme gamer" and it is $40 less.

    Very nice choice here! I am sure this will give you a lot of gaming pleasure!
  5. Very nice rig there :)

    Only thing I'd add if you have extra cash is a SSD for OS. Just boots ino Windows so much faster etc.
  6. Oh cool. Might have to look into it now.

    That was cheap! Wow!
  8. Price update:
    While I was on my way to Micro Center picking up my new computer, I just checked the newegg.com website and I found that the video card above “HIS H785QN2G2M Radeon HD 7850 IceQ 2GB” priced at $249 while I paid $289 in Micro Center which is $40 more!, so when I arrived to Micro Center store I asked the customer service to match the price and They did without any argument and that was fantastic, and they refund the $42 including the tax.​
  9. rFactor 2
    My first impression with rFactor2 was fantastic I put every thing on max and tried monte carlo online with 10 F1 1960's cars and I got minimum 49fps and maximum of 100fps, the game was very smooth, then I tried the GT endurance mod offline at Malaysia with 25 cars in the grid max everything with heavy rain and I got minimum of 52fps and maximum of 105fps, I can tell that the HIS Radeon HD 7850 2GB video card doing great job with rFactor2 so far with all maxout, I will post a video soon for rFactor2 in game fps with different mods and tracks and weather.

    rFactor 1
    Runs very smooth but I see that the textures not smooth as before when I was using the Nvidia GT9600, I am sure that there is something I have to do with that I didn’t go through yet, but I did all configuration like anti aliasing and maxout all graphics options, but still have aliasing edges, but other than that the game runs in great fps minimum of 57fps max of 110 at Laguna Seca with Lexus IS.​

    Regarding rF, my guess would be that with such a new GPU, it will be "too new" to get max out of such an old game :)
