General PC gaming thread V.2

Since the 360 and PS3 have their own threads, why not make one for the best console of all:The PC?

Discuss your setup, favorite games, etc.

And keep it clean of console vs. PC debate, please.

I'm hoping my GTX560ti 2gb will handle most games pretty well. It's supposed to max MW3 out and play Skyrim on ultra.

My 465 plays Skyrim maxed and MW3 maxed. I could also play BF3 maxed on some of the smaller maps.

When are the GTX 600's coming out?

Edit: I mean the 700's, the 600's were cancelled apparently.

My 1G card can do BF3 on High and everything else I've ever played maxed. 2G should have no problems.

That's good to hear. I really want to play BF3, but only if my computer can handle it.

I think I might pick it up, assuming my auction ends well

http://www.ebay.com/itm/220965489889...84.m1555.l2649

Once that sells, I'm buying this:
