Hi all, I've just been reading the recommended specs for Mass Effect 3 and it got me thinking; How powerful does my rig actually need to be in 2012? I know that it'll run that pissy console port without any problems, if I can be bothered to play it (my social calender certainly has the room for it). However; with the exception of a few games, namely Crysis/2 maxed out and for some odd reason Skyrim and also if I'm honest the AA in BF3 my rig can handle it's games. It also looks set to handle pretty much everything on the calender in 2012 with relative ease. I'm not sure I will even need to upgrade at all this year? Will you be upgrading your GPU, perhaps to a 7970 or better, if the new Nvidia's are? Maybe you're thinking of a nice new Ivy Bridge or some more RAM? Or, do you think it's just an unessential expenditure for 2012? Are any games coming out I might have missed that will be pushing the hardware this year? and if so, what hardware? What will you be upgrading and more importantly, WHAT FOR? I suppose this is for people who can run stuff quite well right now!
