Where can i download GTA 5 game for pc?
GTA 5 is now expected to be released between 1 Jan 2013 and 31 March 2013 according to this article – http://www.gta5cheats.com/no-gta-5-at-e3-release-date-now-2013/
You won’t be able to download it until then, and even then what you’re suggesting is most likely illegal!!
Should I get PS3 or 360?
I had PS1 and PS2 but never really liked PS3. I dont really care for 360 either. Im mostly a PC gamer but some games aren’t released for PC so Im getting a console for secondary gaming.
What Im looking for:
- More gaming titles
- Blu-ray(to watch movies)
- I like FPS games
- Better online community
I dont care for graphics because I got PC for that.
I don’t care about Halo. I do like GoW and Fable
PS3 Killzone is much better than Halo. Resistance is also exclusive ps3. Online is free, so its better. Little Big Planet, Disgaea, good creative games. Fighting games feel better with ps3 controller! I think next gen consoles PS4 and Xbox Next are suppose to come out anywhere from end of 2012 “Gulp” to sometime 2013, so If you waited this long whats another year?
How much would a pc capable of running shogun 2 total war cost?
I’m asking as someone who has little knowledge of Pc hardware/software, also would it be worthwhile buying one now, or should I wait until Rome 2 total war is released in 2013, as I plan on getting that too and I would hate having to update again.
Shoguns recommended specs are:
Intel Core i5 processor (i5 680) or greater, or AMD equivalent
2 GB RAM (XP), 4 GB RAM (Vista / Windows7)
AMD Radeon HD 5000 and 6000 or Nvidia GT 240 series graphics cards or equivalent DirectX 11 compatible graphics card
20 GB free hard disk space.
As for the minimum specs:
2 GHz Intel dual core processor/2.6 GHz Intel single core processor, or AMD equivalent (with SSE2)
1 GB RAM (XP), 2 GB RAM (Vista/7)
256 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card (Shader model 3); 256 MB DirectX 10/10.1/11 compatible graphics card (shader model 4, 4.1 or 5)
Alright, I have to ask, if you already have a PC, you can simply upgrade it to meet (and exceed) these requirements. Although honestly if your PC is older, mostly everything will have to be replaced. But you can always reuse the things like your case and your CD/DVD drive so I won’t bother going into the prices of those things.
1. CPU: Stick with the Intel Core i5 CPU. Something like a Core i5 2500k will set you back around $220.
2. Motherboard: Your old PC’s motherboard will not support the new CPU’s and might by DDR2 and not DDR3 like the current standard in memory. For the Core i5 2500k, you need one with a LGA 1155 socket. I would stick with namebrands like MSI, Asus, or Biostar. I would get one with 2 PCI-E slots, preferably have it so it runs at x16 with one card and x8 with 2. I’m unsure if there’s a such board that will run at x16 with two cards, but the higher the better. I’m pretty sure they always scale down the more cards it supports, I’ll stick with 2 slots, that gives you room to expand later but it’s not so much that you will pay for something you’ll never use…. A decent one of those namebrands would set you back about $150-$180
3. RAM: Don’t bother with 2GB or 3GB and worry about adding more later, RAM is fairly cheap, just get 8GB which is cheap and is more than enough for just about anything right now. If you don’t mind spending more, get 16GB. If you’re unsure and want to be safe, stick with Kingston. And from the reviews the G.Skill Ripjaws are alright, but don’t get Crucial, they used to be awesome, but the last few of those I’ve bought have given me problems. And Corsair is a good brand but are too pricey… I would say 8GB will set you back about $50 or less when there are sales or promotions. Which happen a lot.
4. Hard-drive: Ok, I HOPE you have a good harddrive, because right now is the worst time to try to buy a harddrive. Well, not the worst, but it’s not good. Back in the day I bought a 2TB drive for less than $100. Now, $100 will barely get you 1TB. Stay away from Seagate, they are garbage. Another brand that used to be good, but now their drives are built in China and they suck… I see a Samsung 1TB 7200rpm drive for $110. I would go for that if you don’t have a good one already.
5. Video card: I would go to a site like tomshardware or anandtech to see which video cards are up to snuff right now. Don’t go by the numbers. For some reason the two big video card companies now have the most screwed up numbering system in the world where bigger numbers don’t always mean a faster card, so you can really screw yourself up by going with the numbers. Again, use those hardware comparison sites to find out the good ones. But I think a decent card will set you back around $250. I see a lot of the “high end” ones going for $400 or more, but honestly, you don’t need those… Yet… I would stick to the ones at around the $250 mark…
So all together if you want to rebuild yours, it’ll come down to around $670 without buying a new harddrive and about $780 with a new one. And don’t worry about a sound card, if you have one, just throw it in a drawer. Just about all of the new motherboards have onboard sound and are all pretty decent so you should not need to buy a separate sound card…
Buying a whole new computer, I would not skimp and get a cheapy PC. Future proof yourself, a decent gaming rig will cost you brand new about $1000 (building one yourself will save you a few hundred) but of course you now have a PC for all of your PC needs (photoshop, documents, web browsing, etc.) AND a gaming system that replaces a $500 gaming console. Except you can play games with MUCH better graphics, AND they cost less.
Just do yourself a favor, don’t go to questionable sites, downloading all kinds of crap, because that’s how you get a virus and then you’ll complain that your PC is slow… Uninstall most of that garbage that runs in the background that you don’t use. When you get a new PC, it’s loaded up with all kinds of useless programs that run in the background, some of them you can see in your service bar on the bottom. Just get rid of most of that crap, the PC will run so much better. Get a decent anti-virus program like Norton Anti-Virus (not 360 or Internet Security, those will slow your PC down) And just be careful with what you download and READ pop-up boxes before you just click yes or ok to make them “go away” to avoid installing unwanted programs or getting a virus or spyware… Don’t install “toolbars” in your browser. They are all useless, uninstall any that you might accidentally install…
Anyway, those are my tips and my price estimates. I suggest getting someone who knows about computers to shop with you or build your PC for you. Get someone who REALLY knows, not the kid at school that calls himself a “hacker.” You won’t believe how many computer “experts” I meet that really don’t know what the heck they are doing…
is fortnite a pc exclusive?
i know the game is not going to come out until 2013 and little is known but does somebody know the answer to my question. i googled it a few time but i cant seem to find a solid answer. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!
Fortnite is going to be PC exclusive at release, that doesn’t mean they won’t expand it at a later date. It is the first game made using the 4 engine, so the platforms might not support it.
Is it to late to buy a PS3??
2 yrs ago i bought a Wii. About a month later during e3 nintendo shows a new console their making and now they kinda stopped making wii games and a new nintendo console coming out sometime in march or something. Sure i got to play some awesome Wii games, but i could have saved my money, kept playing PC games, then bought the WiiU and then played all the old Wii games on that. I dont wanna make the same mistake here so is it to late to buy a PS3 now? or should i just hold on to PC gaming, wait like a year and then buy the PS4 which, since its sony, will have PS3 playback?
This is a hard question to answer, because it really depends on the person. If you bought a PS3 now, there’s still tons of games on the horizon that are set to be released: The Last of Us, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed III, Beyond: Two Souls, and hopefully sometime, The Last Guardian.
Not only that, but you’ll have tons of older games you can get for pretty cheap that are absolutely amazing. There’s the Uncharted Trilogy (couldn’t recommend these games enough), the God of War trilogy, LittleBigPlanet, Mass Effect 2 and 3, Portal 2, Heavy Rain, Batman: Arkham City, Red Dead Redemption, Skyrim, the list goes on and on. If you got a PS3, you would not be crippled on games to play like you were for the Wii. You should be able to keep yourself busy for years with all the great games out there!
But it is true that the PS3′s successor is on the horizon. Most people’s guess is that it’ll be released late-2013 or early-2014. Don’t count on it being backwards-compatible though, because they’re starting to get away from that. The PS3 hasn’t been able to play PS2 games since the very original console was released. This doesn’t mean that the PS4 won’t have any sort of backwards compatibility, but I definitely wouldn’t base my decision on that.
So as of now, there really isn’t a clear-cut choice. If you’re low on money and always want the newest and the best, I’d say wait out the PS4 and continue playing your PC games. But if you want to play some of the best games this generation has to offer now, while still being able to look forward to some great A-list games set to come out in the next few months, then the PS3 is a great option. I really don’t think you’ll be disappointed with either choice you make.
