With the economic climate climbing and falling more times than a roller coaster at a theme park in recent months, It can be a tough decision for anyone to part your their well-earned cash on a much needed upgrade for their PC. As a result of this some people might be struggling to keep up with developers who aim to set the standard with their new products.
