Thanks for the inputs! I just managed to get my hands on a 6670 before everyone pulled the plug on it. It is no longer available anywhere - online or offline.

Also, playing Far Cry 3 on my friends machine - nice graphics! Little tough missions though. Or am I becoming too old?

Far Cry 3 can get really really addictive! The missions are varied and there are so many things you could do sidelining the main storyline entirely and not get bored! Some of them require stealth as well. You can always go guns blazing if you find it taxing and time consuming.

Once you complete this title (which will take a while), donít forget the standalone expansion - Blood Dragon. The setup is entirely different and takes place in a dystopian world with futuristic weapons, cyborgs etc. The character is voiced by Michael Biehn, voice over is brilliant - plenty of cheesy one liners and references to the Ď80s movies. Donít miss out on this one!

Yes, thats the best part. You don't need to go mission after mission. You can just take a car to the beach, chill out by the sea, kill some pirates, chill out some more, kill a shark or two and it goes on

Was planning to. What's with the prices of Diablo3 and the expansion pack. Too damn costly man!

Sorry dude the AH is closing on the 18th and things have been dry in there for a few weeks now. Current BiS items are next to worthless in RoS. Anwin made some good monies. I just made enough gold to sell for 40 dollars.

Recently started playing GRID.

Verdict: While the graphics may not be up to par with current racing games, given that it is over 6 years old, GRID is easily one of the best driving / racing games I have played in a long time. In fact, I would say that it is even better than GRID 2.

The icing on the cake is driving the Le Mans 24 hours race, with the lighting changing from Afternoon-Dusk-Night-Dawn-Morning. You can also drive the early mulsanne straight and max out your car.

And had Max Payne 3 installed on the machine. Now with the new graphics card, I can play in the max settings. And wow, the game looks awesome like that! Hehe, Far Cry 3 can wait. Let me finish Max Payne 3!

Any battlefield 4 players in here? PC gamers to be specific.
I've been playing BF3 and BF4 since their launch and I hardly see indians on those servers. Do we have any bhpians playing these games?

EA is offering Battlefield 3 for free! Yep, perma-free just like Dead Space they gave away some time back. Download away to glory.

Battlefield 3 - Origin

PS: Origin account may be required. And this isn't an affiliate link.
