    either one of those builds i posted earlier will play games at 1080p. If you wanna add a little more towards the gpu, then we can remove the disc drive it you strictly gone buy games digitally.

    i havent torrented on single game...the prices be too perfect for me. Plus, i started reading reviews and going to youtube to see gameplays before I buy, PLUS, steam got a fire return policy. You can return a game for any reason as long as you havent played it for more than 2 hrs.

    I bought Dead Rising 3 during the summer steam sale and it kept having issues. Come to find out, it was a shitty port. I had only clocked 30 min on it, requested my money back, and it took less than a day for the refund.

    This is mine for comparison. This is next to a 42 inch TV

    You play on a 42 inch TV? Have you noticed any latency? I'm of the understanding that you don't want to go bigger than a 32 inch.

    @AP21 I'm thinking of moving this to Ill Tek. I got a good custom one but the only problem it has an intergeated graphics card instead of a dedicated one due to it being a mini dual pc. 2tb pc and a 2tb mac. 2.7 ghz but can superclock up to 3.1ghz. Due to the size i would have to upgrade to a much bigger case abd a power supply of at least 500 watts. Thinking bout the geoforce 2tb 770 also.

    But a cool master elite 130 or 120 i forgot but I dunno if i should go ahead and but the graphics card and piwer supply.

    @AP21 have u run into any problems of running outta of virtual memory on any of ur rigs?

    I was playin roller-coaster tycoon the other day & my pc kept crashing & saying I'm running outta virtual memory while playing this game. I took that game out & started playing skyrim, & dayz i didn't have any problems?

    Yes.. it'll eventually slow down ur pc & the machines performance


    But if ur okay with not having to keep up the industry demands for higher res games especially on PC then u should get the rig u been looking at

    @ikingofgivbiz, aye fam, if you need to move it, then its cool. My vision was to keep it here since building a pc was related to gaming on it vs buying a console.

    @kingofkingz, i've never had any issues with virtual memory. My rig is primarily for gaming but i do use it to stream movies via Plex, so basicallly i have nothing else other than Steam, Origin, etc... plus a couple of other programs that arent real resource heavy.

    I have an office pc that i do most of the heavy lifting with
