Not sure if any of them will see this but Just wanted to say thank you so much for the time, effort, and awesomeness they have shown and given us throughout the years. Ive followed Alex and Brad since Gamespot and Vinny since he first was apart of the giantbomb crew. I feel very sad right now, but I know after what they have given us they deserve a break and need to look after themselves. Hopefuly we get to see more from them in the future. Its been awesome to be apart of it.
@lilnatureboyx: yeah I like the tempered glass case. And yeah I’m sure that when I eventually upgrade the GPU I’m sure I could sell it. Worse part is waiting a week until it gets to the Best Buy for pick up, assuming there isn’t some delay. I got a monitor I bought from Costco coming in on Friday. 165hz refresh, 1080P 32 inch LG monitor with gsync.
@facelessvixen: yeah, for the moment I’m ok with 1080p. If I want 4K I’ll obviously need to upgrade the GOU, but I assume the 1660 is good for at least 1080p and will run games well like that? I’m not expecting to run new stuff on ultra, but I’d like to at least do medium or high. And yeah, since GPU availability is screed up right now I’m cool with waiting and saving up to get a better one sometime next year or so, but I assume the 1660 is at least good for the foreseeable future if I stick to 1080p?
Also if I do upgrade the GPU, I assume most will work with the power supply and CPU I have? Or am I going to need to see what the wattage is on the PSU before I upgrade the GPU?
@gundato: like as far as it being broken when taken out of the box? I’m doing I store pickup so hopefully that would help mitigate some it being damaged in transit. But it also isn’t going to be there u til the 30th to be picked up so it’s still being shipped to the store.
@gundato: so backcatalog stuff should be able to run on high settings ok? I realize stuff from the last year or two is more demanding, but I have stuff from like 4 plus years ago and I play a lot of blizzard games and older steam games. Honestly I’m coming from a 2015 5K iMac so I’m sure this will blow that out of the water.
And yeah I’ll more than likely replace the SSD sooner rather than later, but should be ok for right now. The other one I was looking at was 300 dollars cheaper but only had a 250 SSD and 8gb ram and was a GeForce 1650, so I figure this was worth getting and paying the extra money.
