ME2 glitch

I'm having a small problem with Mass Effect 2: when I turn the graphics up past a certain point, the orange selection squares refuse to go blue, and I can't interact with people or doors or such. If I turn down the graphics, the problem disappears. It's not just resolution; I've crossed the glitch's...

GPU bit-rate quandry

If two graphics cards are the same in almost every respect, but one has double the bit-rate of the other, how much of an impact does that have on the performance? Or, maybe a better question would be, what kind of impact does it have? I just bought an MSi GT620, but the performance was only marginal...

Re: Upgrade options

@ Stuart: Yeah, I heard, after placing the order, that I could have chosen better, but what's done is done, so I'll live with it for a while at least.

Done

Hi All. I've bought all the parts and the machine's running relatively smoothly. I thought I should let you know what I settled on. In the end, a friend gave me cost price on selected items, so most of my choices fitted into what he had to offer: Intel i5 2500K, ASUS P8B75-V, Corsair XMS3 2x2GB DDR3...

Re: Upgrade options

Thanks, StarBound. TakeAlot's got free shipping on expensive stuff, which helps, even though I could probably go collect personally.

Re: Upgrade options

The i5-2320 at Rebel Tech is sold out, but I'll keep it in mind if I find it elsewhere.

Re: Upgrade options

Thanks, all, for the advice. ComputersOnly only put up what motherboard was in that package after I emailed them at the same time I posted here. I share everyone's opinion, here, about the H61. I'll try avoid that. In reply to THE_STIG, I don't know exactly what case I have, as it came in a starter ...

Upgrade options

I am looking for advice for buying components. I will have between R3000 and R4000 to spend on a CPU/mobo/RAM upgrade, since my old Athlon64 died unexpectedly recently and I haven't had the chance to save much. I would like to aim in the area of an i5 2500K or similar, but cost comes first. I alread...
