Thanks duder!

I ran into this photo while googling Lang Zone images and it just felt right to do this. It's a quick shit job, but it works. Lang has no idea what's going to happen to him in the future on the last day of E3 2015, but Ryan knows.

<LOVE RYAN DAVIS> It's MAAAAAAAAGIC

Recently upgraded to two GTX 970s in SLI from a single GTX 470. It's my first SLI setup ever and I'm pretty happy with it. Witcher 3 and GTA V both run at a constant 60fps maxed out at 1080p.

Seems like overkill for 1080p? I think one 970 should be able to handle those games at 1080p, maybe minus hairworks since it's super unoptimized (atleast in the witcher) supposedly. And if it can't, then they really need an affordable 1080p card to come out

You're absolutely right, it is overkill currently for 1080p. One GTX 970 is enough to hold a constant 60fps at 1080p in most current games but there's a few that fall down to between 40-60fps with one card. GTA V is one of them.

Anyway, the reason I got two cards in SLI is future proofing and the occasional Stereoscopic game. I'd like to be able to max out future games without frame drops for many years to come. :)

This power supply has been rock solid with a 4790K (fantastic CPU) and two GTX 970s in SLI. Running Windows 10 x64 and using 8GB RAM. I also have six internal hard drives and two DVD burners. I have been building PCs for around 20 years and always pay more for a good power supply made with good parts. It's the most important part to a computer.

I use this motherboard and really like all the BIOS options it gives. Overclocking and fan control can be set up easily in BIOS. If you plan on doing SLI, the south bridge heat sink is incredibly effective at keeping heat down.

Case depends on size and preference. Just make sure the case supports the motherboard size you buy and can fit the video card(s).

Hope others can help give you better ideas of what to get. I hear those GTX 980 Ti's are great cards.

Haven't had much time to play games this year with my new job. In fact, I probably spend more time on Giant Bomb and than actually playing games now.... which is a little strange, but oh well. Here's the games I've finished this year that I absolutely adore:

1. Witcher 3

2. Life is Strange

3. Grand Theft Auto V (PC)

Props to all the mods for doing a great job keeping the chat clean during the E3 streams! Also, thanks Marino for all the effort putting those trailers up.

I tip my hat to all of you.

Looks like I'll still be using my XBox 360 wireless controller for my PC until the price drops on the XBox One controller for PC. $80 is just way too much considering my (now 6 years old) current controller works just fine.

Its ok, better than goddamn Applebees. The boneless wings are pretty good and they have some good flavors but I've been there like twice its just ok.

Anything and everything is better than Applebees.
