I feel a bit ashamed too. I dropped fiddy as well.

My system was already upgraded because my old one exploded about 6 months ago. Motherboard capacitor went pop.

Re: How much does Planetside 2 really cost you?


I had to buy my first gaming computer to play the original PS back in 2003. Only had consoles before, but I had to have that game! Spent $1300 on a decent Alienware, cause I had no idea how easy it is to build your own.

For PS2, I'm waiting till we get close to release, then I'll drop $1500-$2000 on parts to build myself a new rig as my current one is 3 years old.

I will be spending over €1500 on a new computer, but it's not exclusively for PS2.

Re: How much does Planetside 2 really cost you?


Probably won't be upgrading anything immediately, but I've been saving up for a new rig (around $1,000, since I have a 7850 card already).

Just want to note though, this is for more than just Planetside 2, and I haven't really upgraded anything but the card and ram for like 3-4 years.

I recently replaced a faulty CrossfireX ATI card with 2x GTX680 in SLI but this was before the PS2 hype train started moving. I'm now very happy with my choice because it looks like PS2 has Nvidia multi-GPU support!

None to date, but I'll prob upgrade the laptop to a decent one soon after I have tried PS2. Would have out down £20/$40 had I know about the station cash deal.

Im more worried about my "gaming" PC though, I have been spoilt by Valve's ability to create games that run on everything!

How screwed am I gunna be? ....

Corsair 8gigs 1600mhz DDR3 ram
1TB HDD w/ Intel Rapid Boost caching on a 64gb SSD

That should run PS2 on Low with really good frame rates, or playably on Medium.

You'll be better off than I was when Planetside 1 launched. I had a 1.4 GHz single core Celeron, 512 MB RAM, and an ATI 9600

Awesome. Set everything to max, then scale back shadow and foliage quality until you get good frame rates. You'll probably stay close to maximum everything @1080 resolution.
