They are meant to test game balance and server code, not the level of graphics.

The public alpha did you dee the leaked game footage of it? Also this is alpha so I'm sure that's not toned down.
What you got on that Grief?

a lot of that footage is from trailers, so is irrelevant to the discussion. OFC doctored up media footage is gonna look the best.

Look closely during the actual leaked alpha trial gameplay. Like the textures on the grass, or the massive jaggies on some of the walls (look at the wall above the player at about 3:30) and you will see what I am referring to.
Compare from the leaked alpha to caspian border/other dice promotional trailers and you will see.
Compare the water, water looks very stagnant in alpha.

OK I'm aware of that but my point is would you be disappointed that you could only run the graphics of the leaked alpha?

I also agree with many of these guys. Water cooling is overkill for that overclock. Get a Hyper 212+ and you're set up to 4.5 GHz. It's a very good heatsink/fan setup. Over that and THEN I would recommend water cooling.

I would also skip out on the 550Ti and go for a 560Ti. You'll get MUCH better performance out of it than the 550 and it's a much more prepared for future games. The 550 will very quickly be outgunned against modern games running at max settings. It just won't be able to take it. I was also going to go for the 550 at first, was advised against it and told to get a 560 instead. I regret nothing.

I would also recommend a Corsair, Seasonic, or Antec PSU @ 650W +. Rosewills don't have a great reliability reputation.

You said you had a $900 budget. If you check out my sig rig. I got all of that for about $930. That's with any taxes and shipping, but not including the OS.
