what kind of oc could i get with the 5900u i think it comes stock at 450/850?
I have a 5900 running in another machine at ultra speeds and it really struggles with LOTR Battle For Middle Earth II with medium settings, but does great on low. I also have a friend running a 5900xt with very similar results.

Considering the games you mentioned there is no doubt that you will be able to play these games.

You will also be able to play video dvd quite decently. I know as you said in your past post that the newest games ie. LOTR BFME II, F.E.A.R. FarCry etc will not be able to play decently and that you are not concerned about them.

Some do not read or have no thoughts of actually answering your question. Yes, you will be able to play the games you specified and the ones (that you specified) that use shaders will play very well with shaders disabled.

Read his original post again and you'll see that he asked specifically if it would run new games at medium settings. Nowhere did he state that he wasn't interested in BFMEII,FEAR,FarCry,etc. He asked for feedback and received it. No idea where you're coming from

Read the entire thread next time. You will find that oftentimes people change their minds and views as threads mature. We are back again at not looking at the whole picture and then becoming confused as to the changes in the thread and views/opinions. This confusion is often birthed from fragmented thinking and reading.

That doesn't discount his asking for feedback on newer games. As far as being confused, you mentioned Far Cry as an example of a newer game.....that game was released over 2 years ago

Laugh at your own statements all you wish. You are the one stating confusion, not me. = confused

You do not take into account the statement "Ahead of Its Time". FarCry is an example of a modern game that was ahead of its time and only now are the newest games performing such modern graphic technologies as the CryENGINE does.

The AI is remarkable. Mercenaries work in teams to smoke you out and take you down. Mutants seek out your position and try to ambush you. Even on the easiest settings, the mercenaries and mutants are formidable opponents, and any miscalculated actions WILL result in your demise.

CryTek's proprietary game engine, CryENGINE utilizes a completely new directx 9 rendering machine. No revamps or re-engineering of a past gaming engine here. The only other game that has anything close is the Monolith's Lithtech engine of F.E.A.R. and the AI of FarCry is still superior to F.E.A.R.

So FarCry falls into the "Modern Game" spectrum due to being ahead of its time. So I stand by the view that FarCry falls into the spectrum of Modern games.

Here's the thing. If a game is released today and utilizes an old technology is it a "Modern Game"? Thus your statement is debunked as totally useless as a rejoinder.
