One of my biggest regrets when building my custom rig 6 years ago is that I didn't throw the extra 50 bucks at an i7 over an i5. It hasn't really been an issue, but I am running into a few issues now when running playing a strategy game and getting obscene turn times. My system is still hanging in there but it is getting long in the tooth, especially with graphics. My graphics card really hums on Total War games (although oddly I can get great performance on NBA2K series or Tropico 6 or some others. But yeah, I won't be able to play the FF7 Remake PC version or some others at full detail until I get that new card, and probably an i9 and I think that means a new motherboard which might well mean new RAM which at that point basically means new rig.

F these crypto people.

Yeah, I bought my graphics card in 2017 for around $270 iirc. The same card is selling for $600-800 today. Prices are crazy.

Golden Ale. Brought it in for my co-workers. Hadn't even tasted it yet so we had it together. It's a hit.

This forum is still the same boring repetition.

I question how I spend 30 minutes or so on here once in a while but some of you seem to empty minutes/hours into this bottomless pit over weeks and months.
oo oo ahh ahh
