    Basically a thread all about my PC and it's capabilities, and random games I play, since I will be sharing a lot of my stuff with the community. Also since I've been into modding, I wanted to have a nice, organized place to toss all of my accomplishments in screenshots and or videos.

    ==========================

    Spring 2012:
    Well, after upwards of a week of working on my ENBseries SORA 0.82 settings/iCEnhancer2.0 settings, I have come close to perfection. The only mods I actually have on here are all of the visuals, minus the HD textures I need to add that are a higher resolution than the ones I'm currently using. Also going to add an iCEnhancer setting that will allow me to achieve double my current resolution (3840x2160). The HD textures I'm looking for are hard to find, because the one who uploaded them, put them on MU. So now it's next to impossible to recover them. For this, my GPU is running @1100core/1450mem @1.25mV on 65% fan speed, never hitting above 65degrees. CPU is running at an astounding 4.7GHz on the CM V6 GT CPU cooler, with voltage bump of +0.055. My computer seems to run this efficiently, the only problem seems to be with when I look at a lot of cars moving. I can get 40-50 FPS w/ 30-40% GPU usage, but when I go by a large group of cars (more than 20 or so), my FPS will dip down, based on how many cars there are. I sometimes get to as low as 17-18FPS with this, but it's still extremely playable. Apparently it's a driver problem for the HD Radeon 7000 series GPU's as stated on on a GTA IV modidng website.

    GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-27-23-40 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-27-52-28 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-28-13-49 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-32-03-47 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-33-20-42 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-35-00-93 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-35-10-16 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-36-15-03 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-36-16-64 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-40-34-46 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-42-39-57 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-46-24-67 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-48-30-74 GTAIV 2012-05-09 17-53-25-56

    ===========================

    Old December 2011 GTAIV shots with 6770/Athlon X3 425 (@ 2.7GHz)/1920x1080res using 0.80 ENB/DKT70 settings:

    2v7xp8n 2vmizxt 22es6b ir6fk5 or05rr

    I thought this was pretty spectacular to be honest.


    ===========================

    October 2012:
    Skyrim using ENB series, HD textures (8x vanilla resolution), tree/grass/foliage mods. I didn't finish adding in HD characters/armor/weapons, better character faces.

        There's also custom made map packs you can add in, including a LCPD mod, where you play as an officer.

        Here's a giant ass add-on map called Gostown Paradise:

        @Dirtbag Had to find somewhere to show you, but I ditched the RAT7 (which is sitting on my shelf right now), and am now using the Razer Spectre Starcraft II Edition.

        I wouldn't say it's worth the $70, (I got it for free with my Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Mechanical keyboard) but the nice blue lighting on it and the shape is just to die for. If only it had extra buttons for skill-binds/command-binds in Tera/CS:S like the Razer Naga Epic I plan on getting.

        The problems I was having with the RAT7 were EXTREME over sensitivity, moving to the smallest noise/vibration, and either the y-axis/x-axis laser would stop working. When I get a new mousemat, I guess I'll give it a second chance, it's really a great mouse to use, I just wish it wasn't so faulty.

        I also had problems with over sensitivity at first too, but somehow I was able to stop it. From what I recall (With my shit memory) was playing with the Driver settings and the windows mouse settings. In the driver settings or whatever it is, it gives you the ability to customize and everything. Or, just this thing:

        Dwm 2012-07-25 10-21-33-00 Dwm 2012-07-25 10-21-43-97

        I don't think that solved the problem though and I went online to find something about mouse filters and Raw input? Possibly just for games but I don't know. I played around with ALOT of shit and it suddenly started working then. Don't really remember as it's been quite some time. Sorry. I agree it is a beautiful mouse but it has its quirks.

        I've messed quite a bit with that. I'm going to give it another go before the Naga Epic, but honestly, I don't think it's going to work.

        Going to pick up that Goliath mouse pad from Razer, the $30 one that stretches across the desk, and test it out.

          Why are you even posting here...? To brag? I could care less, I'm 17 years old and work for minimum wage, the fact that I built a computer at all should be quite the accomplishment.

          Don't randomly post shit in my thread for bragging rights.

            Does it look like I care? You come to this community thinking you're all that by flaunting around all of your servers and shit. You realize nobody will like you if all you do is shove it in there face on every single post you make.

            I'd also like to call complete bullshit on all of it.

            Now keep your crap out of my thread.

                How are you running 3 GTX 590s on a 1100 watt power supply? If each of those needs 365 watts of power under full load that leaves less that 5 watts of power the rest of your computer. Also, how are you managing that much heat? It must be well over the recommended operating temperature in there. Also why that much RAM? What could you possibly do with that much memory except erect your e-peen? Not even the most advanced game application on the planet needs more than 8 gigs right now.
