You ever fire up World of Warships...I will carry you as you rank up. Just add me. I've got a shitload of time in that game.

So what specs do you have on the Alienware?

I am looking at doing the following but don't game so much on the PC anymore. Getting it mostly for video/photo editing, 3d modeling, teaching myself to code and learn myself some SQL.

AMD Ryzen 2700x
X470 chipset motherboard
240 mm water cooler
16GB 3000Mhz RAM
Some version of NVMe M.2 OS drive
SSD or spinning rust secondary drive
Nvidia 2060/70 RTX card

I got around 7-8 months ago, and it was far from one of their really high end rigs, so Iím sure itís already almost obsolete at this point.

But what I can remember about it without going and turning it on?

Win10 Pro
8th gen i7 8700
16GB or maybe 32, but itís the faster than standard speed
1070ti 8GB
256SSD+1TB optical

Thatís about all I can remember.

Forgot the best thing I got for the Alienware. After a week of using it, I quickly got annoyed with how loud and random the fans would be. So I installed a 120mm Corsair H75 liquid CPU cooler. Now the thing is silent.

I suppose I should get a new monitor. 1440 @60hz. I’m sure the GPU doesn’t even have to try right now.

I joined a Division 2 clan from ADVrider and went on a mission last night. It reminded me of BARFtron playing Borderlands.

This game is so excellent. It's nice to see somebody put so much effort and thought into their work instead of pushing a 3/4 finished product out the door.

Pretty excited just ordered the new PC....

Here's the specs:
Processor: Ryzen 7 2700x
Motherboard: Gigabyte AX470 Aorus Ultra Gaming motherboard
RAM: 16GB Geil RAM 3000 Mhz (Going to watch the market and pick up another 16GB soon as it was cheaper than getting 32 from the builder.)
Cooler: CoolerMaster MASTERLIQUID ML240R RGB 240mm Dual Chamber CPU Liquid Cooling System (OverClocking potential)
Boot Drive: 250GB SAMSUNG 970 EVO Plus PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD
Data Drive: 500GB Samsung EVO 860 SSD
Backup Drive: 3TB Seagate Spinning rust at 7200RPM via USB 3.0
Powere Supply: 750 Watts - GIGABYTE G750H 80 Plus Gold Semi-Modular w/ Double Ball Bearing
Video Card: AORUS GeForce RTXô 2060 XTREME 6GB GDDR6 (factory OC)
Case Fans: 3 RGB lit case fans. The price was right not really into the bling effect.


I wound up buying it from CyberPowerPC. I priced it out at PartPicker and it was only $100 or so more to get them to build it so I figured what the hell and let them do it.

It comes with Division 2 and my pick of Anthem or BFV. So what do you guys think BFV or Anthem?

Been playing Risk of Rain 2 lately. Started playing with a couple mods. Managed to break the game in a pretty stupidly awesome way that didn't really have anything to do with the mods so much as the luck of RNG gods. Got items that stacked with each other to constantly proc and launch a never ending stream of guided missiles, in a volume and bonus damage stack that was ungodly. On top of that, crits healed me...and on top of that, had items that caused me to constantly crit. So I was basically invincible, and doing a shitload of DPS.

I got a 1440p 144hz monitor. Nice upgrade from 1080p 60hz. I'm surprised at how well my $230 mid-range card does in 1440, even with difficult games like Metro Exodus. Just tweak the right settings and voila.

I gotta buy a new monitor. Bought that nice new Alienware with the 1070ti last year and I’m still looking at a 1440p 60hz screen.

Having fun with Division 2. After you finish the field, it forces you into Tier 1, then once you finish one major holdout, it forces you into Tier 2, and on and on. Redundant like Division 1 was, but still fun.
