Thanks for all the help!
Got the parts yesterday, assembled it. Runs like a dream :)
Sweet, alot of games dont look that graphically great now a days due to low res textures and basic low poly meshes due to console limitations.....you know the drill etc
To really enjoy your computer to its full potential install and play Crysis and tweak it with a few mods and INI tweaks etc such as increasing tree and bush distance, it can look pretty nice.
However, recently I got my self Skyrim and also the HD texture pack. It looked nice, but not amazing, also the hud and UI interface reaks of console port, which really let it down. The game it self seemed pretty damn good, and only played a few hours of it. Anyway, I went to Skyrim Nexus and researched into some compatible mods which fixes UI issues to be much better on PC and increase the graphics quality as well as some super cool mods. Now Skyrim looks amazing!! By FAR the best looking game I have ever played, some of the effects and scenery is just jaw dropping!
Just as a little example,
Using a Flora mod my tress and graphics look way better then anything Crysis offers
New water effects that also effects water falls.....best water I have seen, looks almost real!
In snowy weather snow lands on me (but not my skin as it melts too quickly) and on dead bodies and well anything else. I also leave footprints behind in the snow as well as other NPC and animals. I can actually track animals and horses etc......amazing!!
Much better weather effects with darker night times. Really details sky and moons etc, there are so many I have only seen a few and it really makes you stop and look at the scenery in the distance.
Much better detailed meshes and textures for objects such as candles, lanterns etc, the cabbages in my game now look more detailed then a whole xbox game together!
I have also added much better female bodies and added more hair styles, some of the new styles are so detailed, makes the original ones looks like silly mop heads lol
Last of all, blood and gore! It so much better now, its not over the top, but fights do get messy, but they would after you attack somebody with a massive sword! Blood splats are fun and pools of blood get thicker as the body lies their leaking outs its wounds!
Sorry for long post, but im just excited with this game right now as its so detailed and enjoyable. Its nice to actually enjoy my computer to its full potential, and im sure you will like it too......unless its totally not your sort of game ?
I can really recommend this!
My PC is over two years old, so your new one should perform even better!!!
