It’s time for a change…
No, I am not talking about another MMO or video game to occupy my time!
I am talking about a new video card because I am tired of pulling 3 FPS while tanking a bazillion mobs in Thorims arena.
I am looking at the 9600GT on the cheap side and the GTX260 on the pricey side. I feel with my typical latency of 120ish a video card upgrade could really make the game much more enjoyable. I am tired of having to go from windowed mode 1900x12xx to full screen mode whatever resolution in order to play effectively. Funny, Hodir was actually fine but then Thorim got bad… I think it might have to do with the card getting too hot but I would rather just upgrade from the 8600GTS to a small processor nm and less power draw and heat.
Anyone have any thoughts on what video card I should buy… going to CompUSA tonight!
On that note, I can’t believe we downed Thorim with my pulling 3 FPS and tanking… it was brutal… and my arm was sore after about 5-6 attempts prior… of course this was after tanking Hodir which can wear one out as well, thank goodness we one shot him so I had something left for Thorim.
On an awesome note, we 1 shot Hodir, had no NPC’s die, and no raiders die… Whoa.
We moved on to just a couple attempts on Freya… ouchies… the new learning curve started last night… and it’s a steep one I fear.
Still no upgrades for me… I am pretty far down on the pecking order for T8.5 since I got my gloves… at this point everyone needs to get a piece of tier 8.5 before I can get a second… damn Emalon dropping T8.5 only I could use… grrrr.
I am still in a DKP holding pattern for the XT staff. I can really use the hit so I will be happy to have it. I will be able to ditch my Dawnwalkers finally and hopefully get some new kicks from Ignis or maybe move my Runed Ironhide Boots for DPS. Of course I can always fall back to my Footwraps of Vile Deceit.
