And gamefly unlimited PC play is just terrible, they only have some really old titles like red faction (the first one) with all the characters have polygon heads.

In saying that, I did find a Config file that makes the game run alot better somehow, I used to have to play on low, now I get better performance on higher settings o_O

And to the guy saying you don't do as well on a PC and you do a console, don't say that, on MW3 I get scores like 20kils / 5 deaths. On my mates Xbox 360 it's the other way round. You just have to get used to the controls.
I play it on max @ 1680x1050(middle monitor) I'm too scared to try it on eyefinity it's creepy as hell. I don't have fraps numbers but it feels like 60+ fps at times however when there are a lot of monsters or humans on screen it drops a good bit.

If you want better performance, as in getting a constant 60fps, download the fix file from this link, it's only a 1.5kb download, and it has the instructions and the actual config file.

I downloaded it and my FPS went up dramatically, just because i replaced a folder?

Oh and you can't lend games to each other with pc due to serials, some, well most console games are doing that now. but that's just for online I have seen so far. or DLC.

You could say I'm living behind the curve because I rarely buy AAA titles at full price (I think I only bought Skyrim, Deus Ex: HR and BF3 at full price last year). Still, I don't see the problem with this - currently I'm playing ME2 and having a blast of a time. I don't need the latest and greatest, even more so when last years games still look bloody brilliant. And what are the latest games, if Skyrim's outdated? I can only really think of ME3 (when it comes out, obviously) - not much has come out since November.

I am a 15 year old that started working in a hotel at age 9 to get 5 bucks an hour. I keep my PC up to date, or at least try. I know hard labor trust me, I won't be surprised if my father demands rent money on my 16th birthday! What a Present biggrin.gif .

I was a Console Gamer since cash was very tight, but then my friend showed me PC has it's own "PSN or XBL" called Steam. You have no Idea how excited I was to make a account and buy games!
Sold almost everything I owned and bought a AMD with a 6850 (again I was practically broke) and started PC gaming. I will never regret going PC, the experience on PC is so much better, great forums and great support. Also You can make a game yours with MODS and make your PC faster. I just love the whole Idea of PC gaming. Ya ya ya Hackers I see them Sometimes, that is so that's really not a big issue. So if you say you had it hard to get into the PC world then Look at be look what I went throu. I made it and so can you! Grow a pair of balls and come and join the big boy's (me and my friend's love saying that to consolers) no offense rolleyes.gif Thank You for reading my comment completely smile.gif

Also don't get me wrong I don't hate my father, he gave me life, a bed, and a roof. The least i can do is pay for my entertainment expenses.

Building your own pc is a lot of fun, if you have the time and a good amount of money too! Don't buy cheaper low quality parts if you can't afford it all at once, build it up with decent, good quality, reliable parts slowly. Just post on the forums, there's loads of experienced people here. At first I was gonna buy my PC, but then I got persuaded to build my own, and after A LOT of research I built it in about a day! I love it though and I'm never going back to console, I find the mouse a bit awkward to first start with, but you get used to it! smile.gif

I have everything maxed with AA on MSAA 4x, and I have DOF and tessellation off due to the fact I hate DOF and AMD GPU's suck balz at tessellation.
According to fraps and me glancing at it every once and a while I get 75 FPS while nothing is happening and I get 45-50 FPS while a battle is going on its actually not really a noticeable FPS drop at all.
