    What was your first computer?

    Fair enough, didn't realise that! I retract my prior statement lol.
  2. I don't mind fairly long load times, but anything over 2mins is a lot. I have an entire 2Tb drive atm for games though. Plus a 500Gb SSD.

    What was your first computer?

    A modern console has an OS and a CPU inside it :P. Couldn't the odyssey only be used to play games? Which would make it the antithesis to a PC

    What was your first computer?

    I'd say in terms of defining PC, I'd say anything that wasn't all in one. Something you could pull apart and change bits out on a consumer level.

    What was your first computer?

    I'd say that's more an early console lol.

    What was your first computer?

    That is possibly the nerdiest, yet coolest, thing I've never thought of...

    Want to get a prebuilt pc without a GPU

    Well if that's all it is, then can always just ask here. Essentially the 1070 is a little worse than the Vega 56 and that runs perfectly with an AMD 2600X, so I'd say pairing it with that or a 2600 should go smoothly. Seeing as you can pick that and a motherboard up for about the cost of an Intel CPU on its own (at least here), it would help with the budget you have too. All in all, for a budget of $1200 not including the GPU, you could get yourself a beastly PC.
  8. So yeah, as the title, what was your first PC that you remember owning? For me, it was a HP Pavillion 4450 lol. Got it on my 16th birthday as a gift from my parents. Had the following, whopping specs: CPU: 400MHz Intel Celeron RAM: 64MB GPU: ATI Rage Pro Storage: 6.4Gb Take a look at the beautiful beast lol So now that you are clearly all jealous, what systems started all of you off to PC building and what-not?
  9. Ah that's my bad, I called it service lighting lol. I just fired up Destiny 2 again now after buying the forsaken pack. First time I tried it the load screens were unbearable at like 4-5 minutes a time... But that was running on a 5-6 year old regular HDD. Finally bit into the SSD craze for this build and got myself a WD Black NVMe drive... Thing is so fast that I find myself avoiding to even bother using the 2TB BarraCuda I got... Cut the load screens down to like 20 secs too!
  10. I'm on AORUS to, the X470 board. Sometimes it's there, others it isn't which is bizarre and annoying. Normally when a game gives the error, it'll be there to close down for me though. Can't help with that one I'm afraid lol! I have this after buying my 2600X and loaded it up. I enjoyed it enough, but having a kid and only getting to game in intervals when he's asleep, having missions taking more than an hour with no option to save progress inbetween just ain't going to cut it for me. At least you know the fix now if it affects any other games though :).
  11. Np, took me a bit to figure it out. It's always worked fine for me from there. It's apparently an issue with the method used to detect cheat software and apparently affects ASUS Sync as well in some games.

    Dropped CPU onto Carpet

    Even AMD chips ain't that fragile. It's not uncommon for people who have bent the pins to bend them back into place. Credit/Bank cards work wonders for this lol. That said, if it were open and dropped pin down, there's a chance a static charge could've done damage, but as it's in the plastic, it'll be fine.

    Mobile Games I am Addicted to?

    For me it's mostly Realm Grinder and any clicker/tycoon type thing that keeps me occupied going from A to B really. They can also be handy for absent minded playing when watching the kids.

    What are the main differences between LoL and DOTA?

    Iirc, the reason the original creator of DOTA got involved with LoL was due to legal complications between DOTA and Blizzard or something along those lines? Tbh, I played the original mod back in the day, but the community has become so toxic on either game that neither is fun now.

    New to pc gaming and finding friends

    Tbh, a lot of online games on PC have clans and the like anyways, so when you get some games, join one of those for people to play with.
