Here are a bunch of videos of the terrible adaptation of The Expendables 2, available to download on Xbox Live Arcade and Sony Entertainment Network. Unless you're a die hard fan of the movie and you want to collect anything that has to do with it, we don't see how you could forgive all the game's problems, starting with the fact that aiming is just as easy as headshooting a fly with a shotgun at about 110 yards. Only the coolest character of the bunch (Barney/Stallone) is not too clumsy with his six-shooter. To make things worse, the game is not even challenging, the enemies letting you heal your teammates without attacking. Now maybe it's some kind of Geneva convention AI routine I don't know. But enough with all the talking, if you're more curious than sensible, you can check out our videos.
If noise is your target.. an aftermarket 980 cooler is a good buy. My fans don't even spin when the card is idle. (1 Hour ago)
you can have a good quiet setup that is balanced, but which can be non-optimal with another gpu. (1 Hour ago)
depends on what your preferences are. noise level or performance (1 Hour ago)
Hence the "decent case" part :) (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: if you've got barely adequate case-cooling going from rear to internal exhaust on the gpu there will be a noticable increase in ambient temperature. A very good vented case, not so much. (1 Hour ago)
