thats what im saying, i'm alreayd the worst pilot ever and to add in an extra feature like that, one that i probably won't need anyways...it might more confuse me than anything else; maybe theres a way to disable it in BF3? or on the joystick itself...

You can most likely Adjust the sensitive of that axis.

But if you not paying attention, then that can happen.

Quite a few people are asking the same thing, in this thread and new other threads as well.

Thrustmaster T16000m

If you go with a logitech be prepared to start hating it when controls stop working. The things are built so cheap.

so need some advice on the new computer im building, it is mainly in response to two games. bf3 and later skyrim.

I will be starting over from scratch, my current computer... 939 mobo single core processor, and 2gigs of ram will be scavenged and i will reuse the disk drive, and the 500gig harddrive.

Onto the new build, ive done some research and have a rough setup in my mind

i5 2500k
64gig ssd
z68 mobo
nvidia 580
8 gigs ram minimum, prefer 12 gigs
(re using dvdrw drive)
(reusing 500gig hd -basic storage-)

now my questions.
-would the stock heatsink be good enough to game with? I wont be overclocking yet, it will stay at stock speeds for a few months.

-video card selections, I will only be running one monitor while gaming. I was told the 3 gig 580 would be overkill, would i be stupid to not get the 3 gig and just go with the 1.5?(also, what brand/specific model 580s do yall reccomend? ie: different brand 580 with a better cooler etc)

-case selection, knowing the 580 is a big card what case would you all reccomend with good airflow and expandibilty ? i dont need anything fancy with leds and whatnot.

- and lastly power supply, the last build i did the parts were power hungry. So im not super up to date on what modern parts draw when operating. I will eventually go with a second 580 and add some better cooling devices and most likely another hard drive etc Whats a reliable psu that can handle a sli machine in the future and take care of the build at the current time.

Builds looking good mate, please know that you don't need the 12 giggs of ram you said you wanted, unless you are a VM nut and host many virtual machines while gaming etc.

8 is plenty smile.gif enjoy.
