    Hey Everyone

    I'm just getting back into building computers and gaming after taking a long hiatus, about 20 years, due to life happening. I feel like I missed out on some good stuff but am happy to be back and see how far technology has advanced. Anyway, its good to meet you all.

    Sup dude! This website is pretty cool but a little slow at the moment. What sort of build are you looking at?

    The stories and information posted here are artistic works of fiction and falsehood.
    Only a fool would take anything posted here as fact.

    Gigabyte Z370 AORUS mobo
    Noctua nh-d15
    ASUS GTX 1080 Turbo
    16 GB DDR4 3200

    That's a pretty beastly rig. The i7-8700 is a hard to beat bang for your buck processor. I bet it runs Crysis pretty good.

    I haven't played Crysis yet but if I do, I'll post up how it runs.

    Re: Hey Everyone

    I run an old i7-4790k with a 970. Would like to swap to a newer GPU but prices seem so high right now. Hoping things taper off some soon and maybe I'll get a 1080 or TI.

    This website's been slow since yall banned all the entertaining people.


    I posted this to my fagbook in 2012... Holy shit it's been a while.

    Every thought and every idea, every doctrine and all knowledge, must serve this purpose. And everything must be examined from this point of view and used or rejected according to its utility. Then no theory will stiffen into a dead doctrine, since it is life alone that all things must serve.

    I started playing Crysis and you are right. It handles it like a champ. Temps were running no higher than 70C. I'm very happy with it.
