I couldn't help it!

I bought an R9 270X graphics card for my PC. I'd been using an A10-6800K and was planning on getting an Kaveri APU, but then I saw this on Amazon at a lower price than what it was at normally. I had the money so I bought it.

I'm so weak!!!!!

This doesn't mean I'll stop being an advocate for APUs. They are indeed an excellent way for gamers on tight budgets to get into PC Gaming without spending a whole lot of money. One of the biggest myths about PC Gaming is that getting into it is expensive.

Anywho, the card is performing rather well. I'm playing most games on high or ultra settings @720p(due to my vision), and my fps are pretty high. I'm getting over 100fps on Bioshock Infinite on Very High. FFXIV is getting over 60fps on maxed out settings @720p, and ESO is running at roughly 60fps on next to max settings.

+Adam Cartwright Definitely, I chose an APU initially because it was all I could afford at the time. I do not regret that decision one bit. It performed well above my expectations with hardly any seriously issues. If someone on a tight budget wants to build a decent gaming system I'll always recommend an APU build.

If they already have a relatively recent PC and want to upgrade without spending a lot, then I'll recommend either an R7 250 OC Edition or the ASUS model of the Geforce 750Ti. I saw a video on that one recently and its gaming benchmarks with BF4 were extremely impressive for a $150 budget card.

A space combat sim that pits two teams of 4 against each other. The goat is to take out the enemy's 13 km long carrier before it takes your carrier out. You can build your own gunships from thousands of parts, and the game has Oculus Rift support. Currently on Steam Greenlight.

I'm playing the game now, and this review is pretty spot on. ESO is a really good game, though it does have some issues. My hope is Bethesda and Zenimax iron these problems out over time with patches.

Story
Tagline
A 10 year IT veteran who is now endeavoring to become a novelist.
Introduction
I'm a 40 year old teenager who grew up in the Motor City, made a lot of mistakes in my life, and now am trying to get a fresh start here near D.C.  I love to read, mostly science fiction or fantasy.  I like to play games, usually online games like MMORPGs (Final Fantasy XI, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Perfect World) and FPS games (Battlefield Heroes, Half-Life 2, TeamFortress 2, Unreal Tournament 2k4).  Japanese Anime is one of obsessions.  My favorite music if Techno Trance and jPop.  I want to be a writer, so I write anime fan fiction to practice my writing skills for a novel I intend to finally work on.
