    Some info and discussion about the title here: http://alloutassault.net/threads/battlefront-trailer.31183/

    Respond to the poll and provide any comment on your interest in organizing a clan showing below. Responses may indicate whether we organize formally around this title and whether we annex it to the existing SWTOR division as part of a new Star Wars Gaming division.

    The Open Beta is running right now, 11 GB install. If you are even mildly interested you should try it out. I really don't like it but you might enjoy it.

    10/10 in my book. Krissie will be playing as well.

    Ok, I checked the wrong box. I checked "Playing but undecided platform" and it should have been "Undecided whether I'm playing at all". I would love to get the game for the PC, but my PC issues are still somewhat present. I need to build a new PC, especially since they say minimum specs is to have at least an i5 chip, which I don't have. So, once I get that PC built, I will probably be able to pick it up and play.

    Requires beta graphics drivers. I use this system for more than gaming, I'm not putting beta drivers on. Guess I'll wait for release.

    I played it without any beta drivers with an AMD card so not sure how they are required.
  8. Martinfort

    Martinfort Division Leader Staff Member

    Those requirements are so bloated..

    My machine is as follows
    CPU: Gen 1 i7 860 2.8ghz
    Vid Card: MSI GTX 660TI 2G/OC PE
    RAM: 8G g skill

    Game is set to ultra - 60fps (Never drops below 60) No stutter, No slow loading nothing, the most fluid gameplay I've had in a long time.

    My advice to you is download the beta and give it a whirl man.

    Because I'm not AMD.

    Martinfort, I only have a Q6600 CPU. That is like 8 years old, at least. According the benchmarks, your CPU has an average of 5104. Mine has an average of 2988. And that is -IF- I can get it to boot and stay booted. I tried to get it up and running the weekend to see if I could play anything and it would just boot up, stay for a little while, then just reboot and many times just hand at the logo screen of the motherboard. So, I don't think I'm going to get anywhere with that computer any longer. Hopefully I can try to slowly start buying parts for the new one over the next few months and maybe have it built by the beginning of next year, hopefully.

    I know one was done for me before, but, if anybody would like to "build" me a PC that I can start to buy, here are some standards I'd like in it. The system should be able to play today's games like Battlefront, Star Citizen, Battlefield Hardline, etc:

    CPU - at least an Intel i5
    Mobo - ASUS (ability to upgrade to an i7 eventually and has two PCIe slots for video cards)
    Video - NVIDIA - I've had good experiences with EVGA brands (only one for now but is capable of being SLI'd)
    C: - SSD
    D:/E: - at least 1 GB standard Western Digital
    PSU - I've found that modular, at least for me, is better, as I don't have extra power cables that I don't need hanging around.
    Case - doesn't really matter, as long as it has a lot of fans, both intake and outtake.
    Memory - at least 8 GB and would prefer Corsair, but shouldn't matter as long as the company has good rep
    Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse - don't need

    That should be all that I can think of for now.

    Reading this before heading into work for a couple hours. Back when I was playing archeage I had a friend need to rebuild and she was on a tight budget, so we threw these three options together. Prices may vary but just dropping them here in the meantime til I can look into pricing out a build to your preferred specs.

    @Martinfort Any luck on piecing together any PCs from my specs?

    Will toss something together tonight, give me an estimation of budget.
  14. Rhyus

    Rhyus Veteran Member

    Preferably under $1000, but cheaper is nicer, but that can also lower the quality of the system. But, since I'm going to be buying in pieces, it shouldn't matter on prices, just individual component prices will make that difference.

    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

    Overall I think it's a solid build for right around $1000. Like I said I'm sure someone else will have some other ideas, then you can take the ones you like and run with it.

    ***IF you want me to readjust for under $1000 included OS choices, let me know***

    I'd have binned the SSD and gone for a larger platter drive, but solid recommendation.

    Trump would have used more marble.

    I wont be needing an OS. I'll just use the Windows 10 from the old system and if I have too, I can get a copy of it from my college for like $14.

    Ok, so, this is a few months old, but Hitting Smoke posted this build back when I posted issues with my old PC. It has some things that are similar and some that aren't. I'll post it here, hopefully I get this right:
