23.03.2013 @ 23:06My native is English. I'm studying to become fluent in Hebrew, I also am more casually learning Japanese, and would like to become fluent in it, French, Russian, and Polish. Maybe a few others too. I love language. I voted only "English" for the moment though.

Intel 3.40GHz i7-2600K Core i7 Socket 1155 Processor Intel Cache 8MB, 95W
Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Socket 1155
Kingston 4x2=8GB KVR1333D3N9/4G 4g DDR3 RAM Memory Desktop
AeroCool w/o PSU RS-9/Red Casing w/o Power Supply Casing Computer w/o PSU PGS R (Red Black)
Corsair Enthusiast Series™ TX650W V2 80Plus-Bronze SLI APFC Power Supply
Palit GTX560 Ti 2048 MB GDDR5 256-bit
CPU Coolermaster X6 CM RR-X6NN-19PR-R1
I'm unsure about the CPU cooler. I currently have a Coolermaster V8 and this seems to be a step down(?), but I also think that CPU efficiency is better now than it was with my current I7-920. I need to be able to run the CPU at 100% load, all 8 cores, for extended periods. I don't overclock. Ambient temperature is "tropical" ›››
The Noctua NH-D14 is one of the best, I'd grab it if possible. It's huge though so make sure it'll fit in your case. It covers some RAM slots so make sure you're not using any high profile RAM.
15.07.2012 @ 13:28I bought L.A Noire on sale quite a while ago. According to Steam I played it for a total of 35 minutes, and the last time I played was about eight and a half months ago. I'm not really a fan, though it seems all right. Graphics are pretty good, but it was a little laggy on my system.

alice is 12.50 on steam with 75% off but i got it yesterday from amazon download for $5 ›››
I'd prefer to buy all my games in Steam, but thanks for letting me know. That's a nice buy for $5.

CPU: Intel® Core i7 CPU M 620 @ 2.67GHz
3.9 gigs ram
windows 7 home
ATI mobility radeon HD 5450
512 megs dedicated video ram
pixel and vertex shaders each 5.0
pretty sure this can do up to directX 10, if not 11 ›››
I don't think so. Have a look here at the 5470, it doesn't do very well and the 5450 has an even lower clock speed. I'd buy it and keep it until he has a better system -- and try it at 800x600 on lowest settings.
If you look at the game "World in Conflict", the 5470 scores 37 FPS at 1024x768 on Medium settings and no AF or AA, but the 5450 only scores 23 FPS.
Again I don't think that laptop will be able to run it, but if the saving is high enough I'd grab it now for later. (Just my recommendation... and that way he could try it too.)

Jake775 said:Unfortunately that didn't work for me. Thought the last patch will fix that - no way. Only the saves that were previously sinchronized are available. Now I think only one solution is left: to download the game from torrents and use my original saves there... that's... urrr... that's... and support still keeps quiet... that's just ffffffantastic!..
PS. I hope they reward that guy who came up with this genious cloud synch idea... achivement: "How to ruin a game that is already perfect"... I would gladly do the same thing Roche did to Dethmold... because even Roche wasn't THAT pissed off... ›››
Gah that's a shame. I wish I could remember exactly what I did... Give what Tommy said a try.
