so i went a little crazy, upgraded my vid card

so when the 4790k came out i built a new rig, 16 gigs of ram, ssd, new fractal case, kickass motherboard, kept my badass ht omega claro soundcard, as ferris said, "it's totally choice", but kept my ati 6970


well with games like doom it was showing it's age


splurged and got a 1080, wth

got the gigabyte g1

all 1080's are still constantly sold out so it was a late night purchase when stocks replenished


now i can play binding of isaac like a champ lol


joking aside it's a killer card, doom is creamy with max settings, gta v is creamy on max settings, love it

now i need a 144hz monitor and i'm golden:)



oh yeah, still rocking a logitech g5 mouse, got it in 2006 and still going strong


my microsoft keyboard died and i got a corsair mechanical one, the compact one, love it to death, makes the nice clicky clicky sounds for days

PC power is an addiction when your main source of gaming is on it.

If i wasn't looking to buy a house you bet ur kibbles I'd be building a monster!

For now this one is limping along.
