FYI on nvidia and ATI graphics cards...last 2 digits are more important than the first one. ATI = xx30, xx50, xx70, xx90. NVidia = x40, x50, x60, x70, x80
Skyrim on 2x HD 6870s with the HD texture pack is shiiiiiny.
Though it took them a year to fix crossfire support.
nephilim said (your 280 will outperform my 560, but is probably DX7/8 rather than 10) plus the Steam Workshop HD texture pack is only 1/4 the size of the 4K textures on Nexus due to Steam Workshop's file size limits - it's still very pretty though and Steam's version is just fine on my rig
In case anyone is interested, found an 'Overwatch' mod server with 70+ players on last night. All I can say is, crazy.
Will post IP if you like when I get home, was crazy. Halo jump spawns, landed 900m from, I think Berezino is it? Up the top? Got to the top of the town and got owned by a sniper sat in the tree line somewhere. Tried three times, we couldn't make it in. Great fun though, the proper DayZ feeling was there with 70 players
on my phone atm.
Can someone post up recommended downloads and add ons for DayZ please. Will get too it either tonight or tomorrow
If you can post direct download links that would be helpful too!

Not managed to get on to Day Z yet but did play a bit of ARMA II - are the KB/M controls and AI as rubbish in Day Z?! After playing ARMA II for a while, I'm completely put off the whole franchise... stupidly awkward.
You can download and installo the latest ARMA2 beta patches straight from it (needed to play DayZ) and download additional DayZ worlds & mods. Also acts as a server browser and has a 'friends' list (which only works if a friend on your list is on a server).
If you have a second monitor or tablet, then have this Google Maps style Chernarus world map loaded when you play to make navigating easier: DayZ Standalone Chernarus+ Map - DayZDB
If your on about DayZ Stand Alone stuff, then there are no mods or add-ons for it yet. The only thing is this Chernarus Plus map loaded on a second screen/tablet: DayZ Standalone Chernarus+ Map - DayZDB
The DayZ stand alone controls have been slightly simplified, but controls in game still handle in the same way.
As for the AI, it is a bit naff but online play is where the real action lies. Try joining a wasteland server once you've got to grips with the basics and you;ll find a world of fun waiting.
No AI problems in DayZ. Survivors are all players, and the only other thing to worry about are infected, and they just your bog standard zombies that chase and try to eat you.

I think I'll steer clear of the standalone for a while longer. It appears the only things being added/modified at the moment are aesthetic things. I mean seriously, was Chernarus the crash helmet production centre for the world? Also things like painting guns and stuff.
Don't get me wrong, still love the game, but I'll wait until some more pressing issues have been resolved before jumping back in.
BTW @Rawns you missed some fantastic wasteland action....well, I say fantastic.....
Next time, I promise that I will throttle back my 'blue on blue' shenanigans! I had the feeling that Chris was not too impressed when he got off the ground in the MV22 only for me to batter it with the mobile AA truck I found.
Next time, we should work together and build a big roadblock checkpoint.
