We are both correct...:highfive:

Max Payne is a third-person shooter video game developed by Finnish developers Remedy Entertainment and published by Gathering of Developers in July 2001 for Microsoft Windows. Ports created later in the year for the PlayStation 2, Xbox and the GameBoy Advance were published by Rockstar Games.

Max Payne looks great but both of R*'s last games had quick drops/sales. I'll wait.

Need a little input on a PC from you fellers. I'm seriously thinking of buying this system from NewEgg. Wondering what you guys think of it and if iBuyPower is a decent company

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16883227400

If I got it, thinking of getting a 64GB SSD just for the OS and add a blu ray burner. Both are 75 bucks each for the best rated ones from NewEgg as well

Well, that system is all ready OOS...

Now considering this one

http://www.newegg.co...#scrollFullInfo

I went ahead and ordered a 64gb SSD and blu ray burner last night anyhow

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

The specs aren't too bad but I'm curious what 560 is in there. The video card is one of the most important things to get from a good manufacturer (the other's being memory and power supply, both of which are also in question). It's a typical place to cut corners that can bite you in the ass.

Have you considered building your own? Yer already buying a new HD and burner, why not do the whole thing?

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

From the specs they list its a 560Ti and if the pictures are any indication, it looked like a an EVGA brand.

I'm considering building my own system as well. Just its been a while since I've even looked at doing so that I've forgotten a bunch of shit. I'm thinking of going with an i5 cpu to save on a lil bit of money. I have some parts in my cart so far this is what I have

If yer not in California there's no tax for NewEgg. Only suggestion for specs though is to up that power supply, especially if you plan to SLI in the future. Some cards can have a lot of pull.

I'm use to typing tax so, forgot about that. As for cases, I have an old HP that I can reuse. Other than the PSU, any other suggestions? This is the first time I've ever built a system honestly

I'd knock down the RAM a bit. You definitely don't need 16GB and the timings are a little high. I'd also probably bite the bullet and buy a new case. Mass market manufacturer cases are not known for the airflow and Nvidia cards generate heat (though not as much as ATI). Depending on the case airflow and cable management could be a cunt. Besides, cases are like $50, you'll save that knocking down the RAM.

That RAM is actually the exact RAM I have in my PC. I'm running two 460s and an i7 and that much RAM is more than enough for anything.

This is what I have in my cart right now (except the BR burner and the SSD). The only thing a friend suggested is that with the case, I'll need extension cables for the PSU with that particular case. The only change I've made from the last list Sneaky is added that case and changed the ram at your suggestion

Cable management is nil with this case, but it has a ton of fans and is substantially cheaper.

You can get a better deal on a SSD. Since they fixed the problem with Sandforce, you can get a bigger drive for not much more. Crucial does have a nice controller, but I haven't had any issues with the Sandforce and hard drives that use them are much cheaper.

Processors and video cards should see substantial deals over the next month as the rest of the gk104 line comes out and Ivy Bridge starts to emerge on the market. The newer nvidia cards also use less power so I would think you could get a cheaper PSU than the one you picked unless you really want to SLI. I paid 35 AR for my Antec 620 watt PSU and plan on getting a 680 or 670 when it comes out to replace my 460.

Ahh, cool. Just swapped that one out into my cart. Brings the total to $1043.91 (have an OEM Win7 in there as well).

Since most of what I've pickd out before you and Sneaky's help is the same that your also running, makes me feel a lot more confident in my choices. Any other suggestions on parts that I may need?

eVGA Video Cards are great! You can't do wrong with them.

I had one go out on me that was 4 years old and they sent me a new card for free. Hooray lifetime warranties! Because mine was older and no longer supported, they upgraded me to the newer model. The bast part is, since I was running SLI, I asked if it would be be compatable with my old card, they "No, but we'll send you a second card if you wish, free of charge." All I had to do was send my old cards back. That is great customer support.

I did have to upgrade my Power Supply however, but it was worth it. The more power, the better. And make sure it's a decent brand like Sparkle or Silverstone.

EDIT: Your PSU is Corsair...they are a decent manufacturer. I'm not familiar with thier PSU's however...just thier memory modules.

Human snatcher before you go with that power supply you may want to check that graphics card power rating. I remember a buddy of mine saying it required a lot of power. The one I showed is probably alright since its a rebagged seasonic but I just wanted to make you aware because those fermi cards are power hungry.

Well, I've no problem with going back to that 750W Corsair one. Was thinking about that just in case by the end of the year I want to go the SLI route. Out of curiosity, would it be best to go ahead and go with an 800-850W PSU if I were to get another card by the end of the year?

Holy crap thats one hell of a customer service department. Reminds me of that story where this womans dog chewed the crap outta her DS and Nintendo replaced it. Or something to that effect.

Yeah, I'm familiar with their ram as well, and their psus seem to have very high ratings on NewEgg

Go bigger if you can. As Casey said (and I can attest to), Fermi cards love them some power. If you're planning to SLI and have even a small amount of peripherals/drives/PCI cards you're going to want the extra power.

And Yea, eVGA is amazing. I haven't needed to use their customer service yet thanks to awesome quality but I always recommend spending the little extra to buy one of their cards. You cannot beat a lifetime warranty on a graphics card.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

I'm almost tempted to go ahead and toss in a second card like that. But I'm sure in 6 months time that card will be a lot lower
