Depends on your budget. If you're not going with a high end card, I'd just wait for the new consoles. They'll be on par with mid to high level PCs graphically.

I went PC for the mods though. They completely change some games.


I build one every 4-5 years. Right now I'm running a Q6600, 8GB of RAM and a nvidia GTS250. I can hardly run Dead Island so it is time for an upgrade.

The biggest draw for me is Steam/Amazon sales. Cheap games make me happy

Yeah I'd say so. Did you have a card in mind?

And yeah, the sales are ridiculous, I have more than I can play in this lifetime. The humble bundles are crazy.

Not really. I need to start researching. We just bought a new Jeep so it'll probably be summertime before I do anything. New cars are expensive, especially Wranglers

Denver Broncos 31 - Oakland Raiders 6

The Broncos traveled to Oakland and continued their absolutely torrid start to the season in moving to 4-0. Clearly this team has a chip on its shoulder after the way last season ended. The defense stretched its streak of not allowing a touchdown to 15 quarters, a truly impressive mark. They held the Raiders to only 102 yards of total offense in this one. So far they're allowing only 4 points per game this season, and Osweiler has yet to be intercepted. Certainly a recipe for success.

Osweiler was 12 of 16 for 200 yards, 1 TD and 0 INT. The gameplan called for more passing than usual, and he answered the call. He's having an excellent season so far.

Warner was 6 of 17 for 96 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. His INT was on a play where the 40-year old showed surprising athleticism in shaking off a sack from Von Miller, though in retrospect he probably wished he'd taken it given that the ball ended up in Haden's hands for a pick six.

DMC had 15 carries for 76 yards and a TD. McGahee continued to show me absolutely no reason he deserves a new contract, carrying 10 times for 15 yards, though he did open the scoring with a TD. So far this has been about a 3-2 timeshare, but I'm not sure how much I can justify continuing to give McGahee so many carries if he keeps playing like this. He's certainly not earning that big contract he's asking for.

Rookie Sean Moorhouse carried 5 times for 31 yards, though the Raiders turned to the pass early.

Nice game for both Broncos wideouts, as VJax caught 5 balls for 82 yards and a score and Thomas added 4 catches for 84 of his own.

Hilliard lead the Raiders with 3 catches for 45 yards.

The Broncos got a big game from Von Miller, with 6 tackles and 3 sacks (one a strip, though the Raiders fell on it). He just missed on several others. Joe Mays also had a sack on a play where Warner tried to scramble before realizing he is not Pryor. Haden had a nice pick six.

The Raiders got a sack from Matt Shaughnessy and Michael Huff had 9 tackles, but that was about it.

---
gg Tanabeo! As I said in my message, I think you probably abandoned the run a bit too soon, but I definitely understand the compulsion to pass when you get behind.

Don't take it too hard, I seem to be doing that a lot this season. I just realized that since the Chargers scored on the opening drive of the season, I haven't allowed a single TD in 3+ games. I certainly expect that streak to end next week when I visit the Ravens.

I'll add that. Though usually if my safety has 9 tackles I view it as a bad sign. ;)

Please welcome our newest league member... dr0ppinL0adz... I'm just gonna call you DL if that's okay. :lol:

He'll be taking over the Rams, though he said Chetty can play the CPU this week since their schedules won't align.

I use Denver's own. I picked it up this year, I used to use Multi D when I had the Pats. I really like it, though it doesn't have a 3-4 set.

And I don't think I'm giving too much away on how to stop the curl route: Stop playing your corners 10 yards off my WRs. ;)

purple's don't work this year unless you have flat zones as well. The defender drops to the lower half of the purple because there is nothing covering the underneath, leaving the 8-10 yards deep throw open.

I drop my DE's into purple with (tight) man coverage that shades either way. That helps to stop the curl.

There are definitely ways to stop that route, but I do think it's justifiably hard to defend, especially since executing them well takes very good timing and decisiveness.
