Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers PC Review


Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers PC Review

This week I have been spending some time, well a lot of time, with the latest game from Wizards of the Coast, the people behind the ever popular card based gaming phenomenon Magic The Gathering.  Magic has been around now since 1993, taking on millions of players world wide, international tournaments which have seen around 30 million dollars in prize money handed out so far and it has also seen many of my friends dishing out large sums of money on some of its more rare cards.

Magic The Gathering is said to be highly addictive, once you start there seems to be no end to how much money you can spend on building a good collection, but fortunately for me and now for many people, non of that is an issue with Duels of the Planeswalkers, because now its all digital and you only have to buy the game to get a large amount of the Magic experience.

Unfortunately I’m a complete beginner when it comes to Magic The Gathering, I’ve always been intimidated by the complex rules of the series, so for those of you who are fans of the game, I’m sorry if I get some of the related terms wrong, but we all have to start somewhere with this game and Duels of the Planeswalkers is where I begin.

Overclock.
The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is a delicacy to overclock. It has a comprehensive BIOS and has no major problems to reach 4.8GHz fully stable 3Dbenchs, the problem is with the Cooler. My dear Noctua NH-D14 (one of thesolutions TOP of the market) was just too small to overclock this CPU. We could configure the memories to frequencies of 2133MHz [email protected] from the factory (who would have thought that a few years ago you could reach 2133MHz on 16GB of RAM).

A robust board, ideal for heavy duty use requiring large computing power, large amounts of RAM and Multi-GPU solutions. This board makes sure everything will work and better than the rest. A comprehensive BIOS, intuitive and easy to use. It’s a pretty heavy board very well built, quality feel nice just having it on the hand. Is a product both for the enthusiast who seeks to break overclocking records, and for thearchitect working doing renders large or for the gamer who wants acomputer that will last for years.
The bundle of the board and  is very complete as well and included are the classic: Sata cable, manuals, Bridges SLI / Crossfire and something noteworthy, a PCI-E 1x Bluetooth and WiFi 2 in 1 .  What more could you want?
