Benchmark Scores I've actually never benched it!! Too busy with WCG and FAH and not gaming!! :( :(
and it is evident that Battlefield 3 will require at least an i5.

New upcoming games for this year that can be CPU demanding:

Driver: San Francisco
Serious Sam 3: BFE
Battlefield 3
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Need for Speed The Run
These are the ones I've got my eyes on :)

I'm a big fan of Driver (even thought Driver 2 and 3 sucked!)

Serious Sam is just a game everyone should have :)

Battlefield and COD MW3 sounds like its going to be a great fight between the two. I must admit never playing Battlefield much, I've enjoyed playing COD 1, 2 and 4 very much :) Online is excellent fun!! ( even if I do spend more time re-spawning!! :rockout: :banghead:)

I am trying to collect all the NFS series, I think they had one of the best games around to play when Underground 2 came out, sadly after that though, its gone a little downhill...

If any of these games need a better rig than an i7, I'll just have to upgrade to something!! :D

phill: lol. i dont think those games require i7. maybe an i5 at most. an i5 2500k should be enough for all games :)

going to get ASRock P67 Pro3 this week for i5 2500k upgrade.

should be enough for all those new games. :)

No but if I say that, it keeps it on topic and it allows me to keep up to date with this SB-E setup :D I just think 8 cores is just the way to go now.. I mean 6 cores are so last year...... :nutkick:

phill: no. lol. dont scare me :(.

i suggest you to stop promoting high end stuff.

i just about to upgrade to i5 2500k.

you are a very high end user and im a budget user. i dont think games will require more than that soon. :p

and these days game developers dont tend to make their games overly demanding like before, which is a good thing for a budget user like me. lol. :D

Well I have two i7 rigs here and I've had them for over two years now with them hardly not being used. Only just this morning I have managed to get my first 920 D0 running at a stable 4.4Ghz with HT turned on :) Temps hit about 84C max and I've just ran with the same settings and done a loop of 3D Marks Vantage CPU tests and I've struggled to hit over 74C with those.. I'm very happy and so much so, I'm going to just try and see if I can get it to run again but with 2:10 ram timings so I can actually use the ram I bought for the right reasons!! :)

I love looking and enjoy seeing any system low end middle end or ultra end and I wouldnt call myself a high end user when I see people running SR2's and so on :) I'm just an enthusiast that I enjoy whatever I buy :) Heck I still have some socket A rigs here ;) So they cant be that high end surely?? :)

I think the 8 core CPU would be the only thing I'd consider because these 4 cores and a decent graphics card as you've just said run pretty much anything :) I know I'll end up with SLI in both rigs with a Physx card as well, but its only because I've got hardware laying about the place!!

I do plan on building a Sandy Bridge system with a 2600k CPU in, but not for what people might expect though :D I just enjoy being different and I enjoy looking and learning what other people do with their rigs. I'm nothing special, just someone that enjoys things a little too much :D :)

MW3 will not be CPU intensive. Not even a little. Its the same engine they have been using for over 10 years now. If you can run any of the recent CoD then you can run this one. As a matter of fact MW3 isnt even in the same ballpark technologically speaking of any of those games bigg34 listed.

Well if you step over to EVGA forums, you'll be able to see a few of them over there!! I did toy with the idea of having a dual CPU setup, but then I thought, whats the point?! I just decided and stuck with having two PC's and that was good enough and best for me :D

Well I think it'll be more down to my GPU then not my CPU by the sounds of it!

I cant wait for some new games to come out, I think with the new graphics card (and cards later on :D) this rig will be transformed!

Are there any other games I should be keeping an eye out for that might make me have to upgrade?? :D

DICE said there isnt a rig made today that can max out BF3 yet you say he will have no
problem?

Metro 2033 was demanding as hell. Still is on most rigs out yet 2034 will be less demanding?

Rage wont be demanding? You have run the Tech 5 engine before have you? Thats funny because RAGE will be the first game to run Carmacks new engine.

Crysis 2 with the update will bring most any system to its knees.

I mean really where do you get your facts from?

I hear Metro 2033 is a right hard nut of a game to run, so I will look out for that one :D

In fact any game that I'd have to upgrade for I look forward too :D Its what having a PC is all about!! :lol: :banghead: :rockout:

For Crysis 2 make sure you DL the new texture pack and such. It wont stress that rig you got unless you do. Also make sure you are using Nvidia's GeForce 275.50 at the minimum.

Heres a link for all the goodies.

Thank you very much for that :) I will try to give it a go with my 8800GT just to see what its like but hopefully my new card will laugh at it and say, is that all you got?? :D :roll:
I have just checked and I will have to update my drivers as I'm currently running 275.33 :) Thank you for the information!!

Did you look at his CPU's ;) Notice its plural?
I have two CPU's but they are in separate systems!! :) :toast:

why don't they say how big of a card is required when you crank up all the gfx settings? they never say that! that's what most people with good video cards interested about.

Those specs are fake man. Please come on over and hang out in the BF3 clubhouse. We got all the dirt in there. The epic news man Gully keeps us all in the loop.

I have two CPU's but they are in separate systems!! :) :toast:
Then you may have a bottleneck on your hands. I don't know much about Intel to be 100% sure. I would ask around. Someone like Sneekypeet might be able to help ya.

TheMailMan78: you cant say its demanding. because there is not official specs out yet.

but im betting i can play it on my overclocked 460 1gb and with an i5 2500k on high settings at 1920*1080 resolution well.

it wont be unplayable.

a gtx 460 1gb is still adequate for 99% of the games on high settings :).

i played The Witcher 2 on ultra settings (without ubersampling) just fine until i bored from the game.

so dont be so negative and scared about the possible high system requirements and upgrading.

i am 100% sure that we are able to play future games on MAX settings just fine with our current computers :).
