    If you bank has issues with paypal, time to find a new bank, paypal isnt some small time thing, if they can't understand how to deal with it, I wouldnt want them handling my money.

    I hate when banks do that....

    I usually use my debit card to buy most of my hardware online when paypal isnt possible.

    then all of a sudden, a restriction was placed on my card and i wasnt allowed to use my card to buy stuff unless i was there at the till to manually punch in my pin number.

    when i finally called my bank they told me that a fellow bank user who bought something around the sametime as me online using the same site had his bank details stolen. and because our transactions were within seconds or minutes of each other, the system automatically blocked my card just incase the thieves tried to use my details to buy stuff.

    when i asked for the restriction to be lifted. they said they couldnt do it as my details were already 'possibly' compromised and the only way to get full functionality back was to cancel that particular debit card and have them issue me a new one.

    bit of an inconvenience for me, but at least the system red flagged my card when it noticed details were stolen

    I hate being young :c I can't have my own account, I need to have a branch off my parents and my parents have been with this bank 20+ years so they get tons of benefits.. Is it possible to get paychecks sent to paypal?
    Yeah, they are just trying to keep us safe, but it's a hassle to have to call them every time you want to buy something ;c

    yeah that's a precarious position kevin. not being able to legally hold your own accounts you are infinitely limited by what your parents are willing to do for you. paypal is linked to a physical bank account, which is what you will need. it's possible to use virtual cards and such with paypal, but the cash has to come from somewhere, and it needs to go into a bank to get there.

    if your parents are willing there is such a thing as a custodial account, where they vouch for any money you may spend. you would have to work it out with them, but if you are responsible and make a plan for pay back, etc - they may be willing to let you.

    i have to watch what I post but I want to rebut with this. This may have already been posted.

    2 GTX 580s required to max this game on Ultra settings.

    I don't believe you actually need 2 GTX 580s to lock this game @ 60 FPS on ultra. This shows the devs mindset that the game is a beast to run as we all know ourselves. My admonition to acquire a GTX 570 card or 2 that equal a GTX 570 for this to look was actually quite lenient. I read one of the devs stating the recommended PC specs are for medium quality settings. I never said you can or will afford that nice of a setup, not to mention the rest of the PC you need. I am telling you what is common sense that this game will need to run efficiently at max settings. Obviously at low resolutions, you don't need as much GPU juice. I wasn't referring to these people. Take a chill pill people.

    Somewhere I have read that future games will require two cards by default. :)

    *somewhere* doesnt exactly mean its true. If you cant provide a source then its as good as saying that god exists.

    I highly doubt they will require 2 cards by default. they will do what theyve always done. and make a single card thats more powerful then 2 older/medium range cards rolled into one.

    So supercomputers need more CPUs and GPUs for more calculation power but PCs doesn't need Big Bang-Marshal and Classified SR-2 for more games performance? :D

    Who? DICE? [​IMG]

    Unless everyone suddenly earns $2000-4000 per week. no-ones gonna be building any supercomputers any time soon.

    we've gone from everyone needing to own dual card setups just for gaming to every one needing to own supercomputers just for gaming.

    what other BS are you going to suggest we need next??? a microwave oven inside our PCs so we can toast our burritos without leaving the desk while we frag noobs online???

    Yes the credit card companies hate it too. These are more words you very well could eat soon enough. Thus, when you do get credit card(s) don't go nuts and screw your adulthood before it even begins.

    Of course the argument could be made that student loans are even worse. :)

    Ok.... Stampede are Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas

    and Cray are building a super computer for the goverment

    What do they BOTH have in common???? MILLIONS or BILLIONS in funding.

    'We' do not. and secondly stampede and cray arent buildng them for gaming

    your point is invalid



    we need only 4 until software dictates we need more

    your point is still invalid.

    no where does it mention anything about dual card setups as default or super computers just for gaming.

    we have 4/6/8 cores because of technological advances, It doesnt mean we actually need them. and even then it doesnt make them a super computer.

    Well I just bought it... Still trying to figure out why I had to pay tax?.. No tax on steam games.. As much as I hate EA and Origins now.. I like Dice.. knowing my luck.. all this origin crap will kill bf3 and it will be in the bargain bin for $29.99 soon. :banghead: Origins will be what kills it on pc.. I don't care where it's sold from I'll get it, but most of my rl pc gaming friends are not getting it because it's not on Steam.... :banghead: Hopefully, i can sway them over to origins.. :shadedshu BUT I'm ready guys! :toast:

    Can't you read. Who said supercomputers are for gaming?

    I see you can't understand two sentences in one sentence. [​IMG]

    Btw, that article's author hasn't had time machine, he hasn't traveled in time and he hasn't said that BF3 will require to cards by default.

    nope, but you are making the claim that all games in the future will require dual gpu setups by default which is just total BS.

    Tip from an old man. Credit cards are the devil. Don't get a bunch and don't use them unless its an emergency.
