Also I stopped playing Metro 2033 because I got too scared
It looks a bit too real for me sometimes and when those monsters come out in packs from the shadows it had me yelling irl
It probably looks great on your system. Mine didn't look to real haha. I'm going to save that game for my next build because playing it now will cripple the experience. Bioshock 2 was 5 bucks on steam yesterday and I picked it up so maybe I will finally get to play the sequel to the first one that I liked.
Anyway, being that this is a bulldozer thread I have to say I hope it stays on track and comes out in June. I already have the $$$ ready, I will check the bench marks obviously quickly to make sure this isn't some fast one that AMD is trying to pull.
Happy over clocking and gaming!

If you have a 125w 6core part vs a 125w dual core part. If all you ever use on that 6core is 2 cores then your power consumption is significantly lower because the other 4 cores are idling.
I can see the advantage of that when over clocking.
