New Gaming Rig - Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

there is a way to approach romance like any business transaction, that is, approach it rationally and kill that bad faith programming: the movies, the love songs, the tv programs, the hallmark commercials. a good rule of thumb like in any business relationship is approximately a 2/3 exchange in your favor. when you put yourself first, this does not mean ignore your cupcake so the she looks elsewhere, but it does mean the benefits trickle down in measured doses- so that she doesn't take it for granted and look elsewhere. once in awhile there is something in the movies that gets right, and when you understand this, internalize it and see it work like this, you cannot unsee it:

a. this is entirely off-topic

b. looking at inter-human relations strictly from a commercial/transactional point of view is a rather bleak philosophy.

 

Maybe "it works" but I'm not sure I would want to promote this attitude.

Okay, I know I said I was going to post the benchmark results from the MSI Trident "soon", but I've been busy. I will do it eventually, but from my initial tests it looks like frame rates are pinned at max no matter what SB throws at it. 😍

 

In the meantime, my father decided to upgrade his gaming rig. (He's 69 years old - lol.) So, he gave me his old one

 

  • Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4960X CPU @ 3.60GHz (12 CPUs), ~3.6GHz
  • 32 GB DDR3 Ram
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 (x2 in SLI mode)
  • 500 GB SSD
  • 4 TB HDD
  • Using a 40" Samsung T.V. as monitor

 

This should be an upgrade from the old HP Blackbird - so I'll probably be using this to run SB. I think it will be interesting to see a comparison between this setup and the MSI.

increase the visible distance even before it gets to maximum will do it

Crank the ground clutter slider to max, increase the road detail level, add more units to a scenario. Eventually, something will give.
