    Flexing my muscles

    Hi all,
    I am looking for a game that will test my new gaming rig to the max. (pc)
    Something that will really make my Dell XPS 8500 regret the day it was made.
    Ideally free.
    Thanks

    Metro 2033, Crysis 3 [if you can wait], Witcher 2 [Or 3 if you can wait], Sleeping Dogs [Apparently?].


    And Planetside 2 will make your CPU wish it had 10 cores.

    Sleeping Dogs pumped up to full everything on the settings will make your PC cry and your eyes bleed at how pretty digital hong kong looks...its a shame the controls can feel a little cluncky occasionally and its full of QuickTime events

    Good choice.

    ARMA3 ALPHA with everything on MAX.

    Planetside 2 is well worth it, and F2P too.
