AHA Very Happy.

Paratrooperino, the fact that you're profile pic is a Lucario makes implications that you're a furry. Just saiyan.

And autism relates to it because to build the bigger, more eye-popping building you have to be addicted and isolated from the world. Autistic people (especially Asperger's victims) don't mind doing this.


Wait, did you just call Minecraft a role-playing game, Para? LOLOLOLOLOL

You do understand RPG stands for ROLE playing game? There is no role in Minecraft!

No way in Hell is New Vegas overpriced. Just saying.
Mixed in with a bunch of better games that cost 10-30 dollars, New Vegas sticks out as more expensive. I mean, if BC2 is 20 dollars and tOB is 30 dollars, and FO3 w/ DLC is 30 dollars and Borderlands is 20 dollars, why should I spend 50 dollars on a decent game if all these gold games are cheaper?


However, when mixed with today's 60 dollars for a 4 hour campaign bullshit, yes, New Vegas sticks out as one of the better deals. I'm just saying it's overpriced when compared to my wishlist .

$60 for a 4 hour campaign would be MW2. New Vegas is more of $60 for hundreds of hours of gameplay. More like underpriced.

Ok, that's what I said. I said IN COMPARISON TO THE OTHER GAMES FOUND AT RETAIL STORES, NV IS UNDERPRICED. But compared to my wishlist, it's one of the more expensive games.

Because I am building my own PC and looking to see what other people are using. My base wattage is at 700, most likely will be an Ultra (Lifetime warranty) and debating whether to get a modular or normal...

Dude, if Metro 2033 is the most demanding game you'll play, you're spending way too much money on processor/video card.


First off, nVidia stinks. Unless you like 3D gimmicks, nVidia is NOT the way to play. Unless the 'way to play' is dusty, loud, racket-y and power consuming cards for 5 more FPS. You want the ATI Radeon 5850.

Also, for the X6 processor, it's not really required. Six-cores aren't really a must as of now. I recommend getting the X4-970 BE or the i5-760.

Metro is the most demanding game I could find. Requiring a GTX260 NVidia or an ATI HD 4870 X2. I want to be able to have little to no lag. I personally love NVidia they have never let me down. Never really liked ATI and I don't plan on getting a 3D GPX card. I also want my PC to be future proof so I don't have to upgrade for 5+ years.

Oh, if you don't plan on upgrading for about 5 years, yeah, you're pretty good. Just up that wattage to 750. And if you buy anything from XtremeGear prepare for ultimate Hiroshima on your PC.

By the way, Crysis with the Real Lifesis Mod (when I play Crysis with that mod, I debate on whether it's a game or just a dream in which I'm in the Nanosuit in real life. The graphics look like the actual world) is very demanding, along with Battlefield: Bad Company 2. BC2 absolutely requires a decent quad core (basically X4-900 series or higher) and anything better than a 4870 to run on anything over Medium at 1680x1050.
I heard the GTX 500 series isn't as rowdy and loud as the GTX 400. Still, nVidia is alot more expensive than ATI for the same performance. It's probably because of Physx and CUDI and 3D and all that stuff.
