You could totally do a project about Dave Snider and his new venture "WebHooked".

Rejection sucks, but I'd suggest not letting it get you down too much. Better to look forward to the next opportunity than mull over what you cannot change. I used to do that to an unhealthy level.

Also, I have yet to see this so...

There's nothing like using something you made yourself, but @phileskyline's suggestion looks well enough. TBH you wouldn't even have to upgrade the PSU should you want to get a GPU that requires a 500W supply. Those min specs are usually for people who buy low quality PSUs.

Should you want to make a PC, here's one from r/PCMasterRace

That's pretty sick duder! Any tips for someone who is just picking up the game?

I already picked up the PC version for 599 Pesos, which was more of a steal when the Peso was weaker. Free is more of a steal than what I paid for, so it seems like a smart buy if you want an Xbone and Titanfall.

I've never really had an attachment to Transformers at any point in time. The trailer looked interesting, but that's the point of them right? I'm sure it will be a somewhat average, high budget action movie. I'll redbox it sometime.

  1. Windows natively supports two monitors, so no special software is required. Just plug that extra cable into your GPU and set up the second monitor by pressing the Windows key and "P" until you've selected the extend option.
  2. Since you won't be doing eyefinity or whatnot this really won't cause any stress to the point of performance loss gaming wise.

Everything looks good except for the chosen PSU.

An established brand name (Corsair or Cooler Master to name two) or well reviewed should be used instead of the current one. Having that thing fail or be on the fritz is one of the more bothersome PC issues to have occur. The current wattage of the PSU is also far too high. Your graphics card's minimum requirement is only 450W and, for comparison, a GeForce 780 only requires 600W. While a 700W PSU is a bargain at $40, I'd question the quality of the product you're paying for.

Get a 500W or 550W PSU and you'll be fine for your gaming/overclocking needs.

Oh man, I forgot about my favorite part of every Super Bowl halftime show, the crowd of young people they pay to soullessly jump up and down!

So do they get herded in there like cattle?

Wait, I thought it was just a bunch of rich people...

You may have found the solution to the problem. Free up some disk space (you really don't need "all the games" installed) and see if this solves the problem. Even with 8Gb of RAM your computer will still use your Hdd for virtual memory and not having that space will cause your PC to have performance issues. This doesn't appear to be a hardware problem from what you've shared. There are some cpu and gpu intensive games that work on your pc while others do not. RAM errors or a PSU failure would cause you to have some sort of random BSOD error code from time to time and freeze your PC outside of games.

Other than that, here's my blanket advise for any weird shit on a PC where hardware failure is out of the question:

  1. Uninstall and install drivers to latest revision.
  2. Uninstall and install the program having the issue
  3. If problem persists, then another option is to uninstall and install Windows.

Follow the above if freeing up your Hdd doesn't solve the issue.
