If you're using it strictly for sound, go for it. It has a lot of power. If you also are using it for video, then I'd pass. I have had nothing but problems with my 806 from day one from a visual...

I tried setting the game to 2560x1080 on my projector and I didn't like it. I don't know what fps I was getting, but the fact that I could notice the occasional stutter made me set it right back to...

I had a chance to play it a bit more last night. I think the graphics are great, but they seemed not as good to me as Dragon Age and I can't pinpoint why. Bear in mind I was playing on my gtx 760...

Tried it today and am very impressed with the fluidity of the movements both on the horse and in battle. I love that it feels very intuitive with a controller (using the 360 controller) as I can sit...

Sounds cool. From an audio perspective, though, it seems to me like anything less than 7.x.4 is a waste of time when it comes to the new formats.

I'm gonna be all over that one as well as the new Batman game, so no sell for me. They both look awesome.

Just jumped in and bought a Gigabyte G1 GTX 970 that was on sale. This thing is beastly! Fortunately I have a cavernous full size tower and there's still a ton of room for it. Got Project Cars up...

I notice the text on foreign films for about three minutes, then I get used to it and my brain assimilates it as part of the experience and the text "disappears". Good 3D enhances the experience and...

Good call. I really liked my 360 wheel until it died after years of use.

Which is why these movies tend to be scope safe - because they are presented as such in most of the theaters.

Gotta call you on it. So the physics aren't good because they aren't simcade like Forza? Sorry to say, but if you put your foot down on the McLaren around a corner, you WILL spin out and crash. You...

Nah, I built my own rig. I actually just bought a new GTX 970 to replace my old graphics card. So I'll be playing at 2560x1080 on a 138" 21:9 DIY curved screen and a G27 wheel with reverse mounted...

I'm playing this on the PC now, but I saw this thread so I thought I'd chime in. Neglecting graphics (which are mind boggling when you're actually playing it), the cars handle a lot differently than...

So much this. My 16:9 image on my scope screen is as tall as it can be based on my seating distance. Any bigger, and I'd be moving my head up and down to see what's going on. However, with a scope...

You're right, I was just being a little dense. That, or the in-game menus are balls. A bit of both, I think. I started with cart racing and finished one highlighted race on the calendar and that's...

Career mode isn't available yet (I'm guessing until its official release date). But wow, what a game. I sit somewhere between Forza "sim" and hardcore PC sim (more on the Forza side, to be honest)....

I actually think it looks pretty rad. I don't think the image degradation would be as much as you think, but I'm just not sure I would be able to handle the halo effect for a very long time.
