Doesn't have to be incredible ultra graphics or anything. Just on decent graphics with minimal or no lag.. Any suggestions for a laptop like that in that budget?Ihateohio0 Nov 26, 2013

Nov 26, 2013 PTC 6: Unown You Di'int! Fifth topic is about to cap, so making this one in advance, so come on over once PTC 5 is finished. And with that said, time to repeat the first post... Howdy folks. With the advent of X/Y and the amount of people who play it on these boards, I got to thinking that perhaps we need to pool our resources together and come together to help each other out in getting specific Pokemon to fill out those Pokedex pages. It's simple enough to do with Wi-Fi trading these days (gone are the days where ya need that damn transfer cable, thank GOD) and if we work together, we can really get some good stuff going around. So with that being said, post what you're looking for and perhaps someone here can lend a hand.

Nov 26, 2013 Gaming mouse suggestions? I'm thinking about getting a gaming mouse. Any thoughts from those who have used some? I'd like one that's not hugely complicated, will switch with my toons, and has a nice, natural feel with all those extra buttons.Krigarre4 Nov 26, 2013
Nov 26, 2013 Yeah another "help, I'm building a PC" ^_^ So last year I got gifted a motherboard and some ram. Guess my wife and younger brother overheard me say I need to build my own PC. Currently using a dell with upgraded GPU. (Lol) Anyways here is what I have to work with. Mobo: Asus Maximus iv Extreme - Z (z68 chipset, no idea bare with me) RAM: Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 4G of RAM x4 Now, I do not know squat about what I have here. I have read from newegg and even searched some videos. Hell, I can even put together the components now. But I do not know what is compatible, overkill or even needed for the type of gamer I am. 1. WOW is my main game. But I do and will be playing FPS and RPG since I do not want to get a new gaming console. (i.e. Xbox one or ps4) 2. I have over 26,000 photos, 1000 videos, and my list of songs is always changing. 3. I do not do any real high end photo or video editing. Will probably get into YouTube posting but do not honestly ever seeing a need for high quality editing. 4. Live streaming and Fraps will most likely be used. 5. I prefer single GPU build at the moment. Maybe future dual. 6. My price range, honestly don't have one. But I would like to avoid unescessary things. I want to work around what I already have and bring out the best in that. What I am looking at for a single card GPU is the 780ti by asus. - is it compatible with what I have? - will it last me at least 2 years till I decide to go SLI CPU I am stuck on. Friend told me to go with a K ( I just acted like I knew wtf he was talking about, I don't like him to much... He is the guy who always "one ups" you) Cooling I have a corsair water cooled for CPU. Corsair 100 something. Need an option on tower (not sure what size for my motherboard) Power supply ( because I would probably just buy the one with the largest number) sigh* The rest is minor details like sound card, fans, and pretty lights. Note* I do have a 144hz 27" monitor waiting also. Just got this as a raffle prize... I only spent 30$. Talk about fin lucky. Well it was a choice between a Samsung 47" or the monitor. Was an easy choice for me being that I am building a new PC . Please help and thanks ahead of time for the help, criticism, banter, and trolls. GG, CrossCrossfield15 Nov 26, 2013
Nov 26, 2013 New 2560x1440 monitor = new GPU, suggestions? It's my favorite time of year - system upgrade time (aka Christmas time :P) Pretty much am in the process of rebuilding my whole system (was originally built back in 2009, so some parts are getting a bit long-in-tooth). New Core i7 etc etc. My current GPU is the Radeon 6950, which I'm running on a 1080P monitor I finally bit the bullet, though, and got a new 2560x1440 monitor, and I'm guessing my 6950 is not going to be able to handle that resolution with everything maxed out (correct me if I'm wrong). So right now I'm looking at the GTX 770 (4GB version). Really only play WoW, so I'm not so concerned about other games. Just wondering if there is a better alternative for that price range ($300-$400).Vexing16 Nov 26, 2013

Nov 25, 2013 How will this work now & in the future?Laptop Hello! I would like to ask, how do you think this setpup will work as of right now running on Good, High or Ultra ... and in the Future with the new expansion working it's way here, I am worried about the new character looks. I love how they look but I must admit that those kind of improvements will demand a higher kind of video cards and drivers in the future, this tought might be running through other players mind and if anyone knows or would like to expeculate, it would be good to do so! Also, this is a gaming laptop: CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ Mobile Processor 2.40 GHz 6M Smart Cache, Max Turbo Freq. 3.40 GHz Motherboard: Mobile Intel HM87 Express Chipset Mainboard RAM / System Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3-1600 SODIMM Memory (Corsair Vengeance Gaming) Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 765M 2GB PCIe Video Hard Drive: 1 TB 7200RPM SATA300 Hard Drive Operating System: Microsoft® Windows 8.1 (64-bit Edition) + Office 365 FREE 30 Days Trial I am close to buying it, but I don't know if it will be enough later on... I am aiming for running as of right now the game on High or Good at least, and for later gaming on next expansion on Good quality. Please, give me some advice and open up yourselves for discussion :) !Harashima6 Nov 25, 2013
Nov 25, 2013 Why so much ESO hate? I am just curious why so many people from different mmo's communities (Particularly this one) seem to bash and insult ESO so much. To me it looks like the game will be fun. I like how the combat is gonna be like, how for example if you attack twice you cant block until the animation is over, I feel that this will allow more thought into fighting NPC and players rather then just bashing your keyboard. I find the lore pretty good, the only one I find odd is the Ebon Heart Pact. The graphics look good to me, and I am glad that they are making the game for Mac (I was stupid enough to get one a couple years ago :l ) The class system seems neat to me, and will allow players to make their character literally the way they want to. And I enjoy the fact that we wont have to have to make macros and key binds for 9875 different buttons and situations, and how abilities are based on what you want and feel what you prefer.Thargan35 Nov 25, 2013

Nov 25, 2013 25-Man Raiding on Ultra settings For those who play on all ultra settings, what is your average FPS in 25-man throne of thunder or during world boss encounters and what GPU are using? Using a GTX 660 Ti 2GB, I get about 20-30 FPS during either of these. Everywhere else I get >=60. I'm trying to figure out how to get at least 60 FPS with everything on ultra (even shadows), 8x multisampling, and DirectX 11 while doing these because I'm very picky and enthusiastic about my computer. :)Lukare7 Nov 25, 2013

Nov 25, 2013 Gaming Setup My current Gaming setup is the following... Alienware x51 RS Intel® Core™ i5-4430 CPU @ 3.00GHz 8 GB Ram 1TB HDD GeForce GTX 645 Accessories Razer Naga Epic Razer Anansi Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 Monitor Dell S2440L (24") monitor with LED (HDMI) I play world of warcraft on Ultra Settings with 1920x1080 resolution. So far with my gaming experience on this desktop I get a average of 60-90 fps in Pandaria zones with Zygor addon taking about 25-30 mb. I am thinking about upgrading my screen for one to a 32 inch with hdmi hookup like current. My ram can be upgraded to 16gb I believe so I think I am going to go for that upgrade this month coming too. As far as graphics card goes it is currently 1gb ram dedicated, I am kinda debating on upgrading it to a 2gb nvidia card but not sure which yet. I am just looking to be able to keep using ultra settings when I get to 25 man raids without going under 60 fps with all my addons I plan on going with once level 90. I like viewing the game with the best graphics and view. so any hints or suggestions would be great!Cyberbeastx3 Nov 25, 2013

Nov 25, 2013 Persona 5 Atlus just made the official announcement of Persona 5 and that it is coming out Winter of next year barring any sort of delays, of course. It'll be on PS3. Here's the announcement trailer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mZssK05WYo Curious to see what sort of stuff this is gonna be about given the trailer, but only time'll tell at this point. Here's hoping it'll be even better than Persona 4! Seems as though there's also going to be a Persona 4... Rhythm Game? Yeah, I gotta raise an eyebrow to that one. But, there's also gonna be a sequel to Persona 4 Arena too, so that kinda makes things better there, heh. And lastly, a Persona game for the 3DS that appears to be a time-based mish-mash of heroes from P3 and 4 against some new foe. It's done in a chibi art-style, which can seem kinda weird. But then again... CHIBI KOROMARU!Yinian1 Nov 25, 2013
Nov 25, 2013 Overclocked :D I've had to lower my settings in MoP from ultra to normal, and the other day i decided... hmm. I'm gonna over clock my 5770 and you know what? I went from 850mhz core to 950, and 1200mhz memory to 1445 and im sitting stable and running 75 Celsius under load :) I'm a happy camper and can now run wow @ ultra, shadows on low @ 60 fps. 45 cities. Thought I'd share. * Edit, I'm only running a 2.53ghz Core 2-duo and 2 gb ram. So I think that's some pretty decent results.Mattisbeast0 Nov 25, 2013

Nov 24, 2013 looking for a decent video card for WoW I want to upgrade my old desktop so I can play again but I don't know much about upgrading. I found this ATI Technologies Radeon 7000 Graphics Card 32MB for cheap but I don't know if its good enough to play on just decent settings I'm not looking for high or max settings. Kind of on a budget, thanks.Krull3 Nov 24, 2013
Nov 24, 2013 Glaring Plot hole in Killzone 4 How is there even a conflict? I enjoy FPS for it's unique. Resistance, Halo and Killzone ranked among them. Anyway. I remember Killzone three, we kicked the Helghast !@# so why in the blue hell would we even give them HALF the damn planet so they can run it the way they do in Kill Zone four? I don't get it!Phelios5 Nov 24, 2013

I am going to try them both out just a side note on Ultra with every thing cranked up to uber level I get over 100 fps on average & can sustain that for the most part in 25 man raids, Some spells cause my fps to drop way low but that is either due to V-sync or due to anti aliasing at 8x. Here is my system specs to go with the new monitors.

Nov 23, 2013 Out of the box WoW Computer? Looking to upgrade soon, but don't have the knowledge to build a gaming rig. The maximum I would like to pay is around $700, but would definitely be happy if I could find something cheaper. Any ideas on something that would give me decent WoW performance in raiding content without breaking the bank? Also, my wife is partial to all-in-ones. How do they handle WoW? Thank you for any advice or suggestions! EDIT For example: how would this work? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227510Morfanai6 Nov 23, 2013
Nov 22, 2013 Which PC build would run wow better? Thanks Alright so its going to be my first PC build, these are 2 different builds pretty much the same only difference is CPU and mother board. I was wondering which one would run WoW better, both will be Overclocked. I mostly would like if you could tell me which is better, but if you also have recommendations feel free to shoot. It would be a huge help if you guys could help me out.

Nov 22, 2013 Christmas time- planning some upgrades Hi everyone, hoping to get some insight on what I should be looking to upgrade. I have been lucky enough to have some extra cash and want to get higher FPS in raids. Here is my current build. OS: Windows 7 64 Bit Processor: AMD Phenom II 965 OC'd to 4GHZ Ram: 8 gigs Motherboard: Gigabye GA-880GM-UD2H GPU: AMD 7870 OC'd I am unfortunately experience low (10-20) fps in LFR and my flex raids that are particle heavy, and I want to get this fixed. I understand that AMD CPU's are pretty !@#$ty with WoW so I have contemplated making the switch to intel. If I do this, what would be my best bang for my buck. I understand that this will also require a new motherboard; because of this, will I need a new copy of windows as well? On another note, if I give my old cpu and motherboard to a friend, will he need to buy a new copy of windows, or can he use my old copy? I have read on various forums that Microsoft views the computer as a motherboard, so technically he should not have to buy a new copy, correct? Thanks so muchFyend0 Nov 22, 2013
Nov 22, 2013 Grinding Sounds Coming from Computer About a week ago, I began to notice a strange grinding noise coming from my desktop computer. Obviously, this is very concerning to me as the computer is less than a year old. The grinding happens intermittently as I play and has nothing to do with starting the system up. I'm a complete nub when it comes to these things, however, so I'm at a loss on what could be making the sounds and how to fix it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! :)Möcha3 Nov 22, 2013

Nov 22, 2013 Building a Budget Desktop to later upgrade Hello Viewers, I'm looking to build a PC to exclusively play WoW/Hearthstone/SC2(medium-highish if I can level)/Heroes of the Storm eventually. I'm only looking to spend $500-600 for now. These are the games I really am only looking to play. I'm currently playing on a 3 year old Laptop that is on Low settings getting around 15-30 FPS in 5 man Dungeons/Quests etc.... On MMO they linked a "Dolphin" Build which is in my price range and seems to play well, from my knowledge of hardware. I literally only need the rig as I already have OS/Keyboard/Mouse/Monitor etc... I ofcourse know it will be a budget build and could "hopefully" run it on high but would like to upgrade it middle of next year time. Thanks for your help in advance! I really appreciate itElirc5 Nov 22, 2013
